One of the big problems I have with The Bachelor and The Bachelorette was that if these people are so in love, why are they messing around with all those different people?
Last night, Charlie (the one that she admitted to having been instantly smitten with) basically said “If we become more serious and sexually intimate, I won’t want to continue our relationship if you’re also being intimate with those other guys. I’m a one woman guy.”
I thought - about effin’ TIME someone rational said words to that effect on one of these shows.
So how does she respond? (I’m paraphrasing here) “I don’t really think it’s any of his business. If I have to be intimate with some of these guys to decide which one I might end up with, that’s what I’m gonna do.”
IOW, she’s PLANNING on screwing more than one of these dudes? I think that’s pretty sleazy, personally. (Now you will all say “of course she’s sleazy, she went on this stupid show, didn’t she?”) I know, I know - it’s just hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that she is willfully ready to sleep with more than one guy that she has feelings for and that claim to be in love with her at the same time.

Feel free to add your own comments about the show here as well, since I didn’t see another Bachelorette thread on search. I’m rooting AGAINST the poem guy and the guy that gave her the bracelet, so that leaves Charlie and Greg. I’m kinda upset she cut the funny one.
It isn’t any of his business – if he doesn’t like it, then he can always leave. It’s an artificial process in the extreme, sure, but if you accept the paramaters of the process (as she presumably had to have to be on it – and she knows better than anyone what that really entails), then you have to be prepared to do anything you’d do with a potential mate in the abbreviated time frame and, since you can’t put one guy on hold while you’re exploring things with guy #2, you have to do it concurrently.
I wouldn’t marry someone without knowing if they’re sexually compatable, but Trista doesn’t get to do what the rest of us do, which is sleep with one person, decide you’re not that interested, wait six weeks and sleep with someone else. She’s got to get it all done in a few weeks, or she doesn’t get another chance.
Maybe I’m naive, but I thought she just meant kissing and stuff. I can’t imagine her having sex with anyone while the show is going on. She seems ok to me, if not a little unrealistic. She decided before she met any of the guys that she would find her soulmate on the show. So, whether or not any of them are right for her she will try to make it seem like destiny.
Yeah, but I also remember reading somewhere that she admitted to sleeping with the original Bachelor, who then chose another woman. So it’s certainly not outside the bounds of the show for that to happen (though probably not on camera - more in a “did they or didn’t they” way.)
