After The Final Rose

can you spot the hanger tag sticking out? #foreverandalways


A sad time has come, my friends. As always, “the final rose ceremony” is always one I lol forward to, and then promptly start a Bachelor nation style withdrawal immediately after (thank goodness for The Bachelor in Paradise promptly starting!)

I think more than anything this seasons ending was definitely a let down for a lot of us. I feel like more than any other season JoJo had SO many good men falling for her. Like I said in my last post, I was pretty disappointed when the final two came down to Robbie and Jordan. While Robbie seemed like an ok guy (and Jordan always came off very flippant and selfish towards JoJo), I just didn’t see the good future boyfriend and husband material in either of these.

Robbie, however really started to win me over after his hometown date. He handled their issue so well. He continued to affirm her and their relationship he rest of the way through their journey.

Now let me go on my dating rant, and JoJo’s situation embodies this for me. I feel like so often women today go only on their heart and a “feeling”. Often times I feel like this is sexual chemistry, or the sheer excitement of the thrill of the chase (aka wanting what you can’t have). Now I definitely understand the excitement, but I think there’s so much to be said for the guy that is there for you. 

Now don’t get me wrong, if you aren’t attracted to someone don’t try to make it work. If it’s not there, it’s not there. But seeing how Robbie and Jordan were both very good looking (and so similar), I don’t think that was the issue. JoJo went for the thrill, but did not look (as her parents advised her) for husband material. Robbie knew what and WHO he wanted while Jordan threw out a few lame I don’t knows and smirks.  In looking at a man that is ready and will be a good husband (and father) through illnesses, pregnancies, morning breathe, you name it I can see Robbie ready for that and having a kind heart for JoJo and Jordan comes off so self centered and weak to me. He was either to scared or not ready to ask her father.. And that is a huge sign to me that either he’s just not there yet or he just wasn’t that into her… And then she kind of pressures him (hellooo ultimatum!) into it.

I truly hope this is all editing and that Jordan truly loves her and they at happy and make lots of little football babies… But I really don’t think I’m wrong here. But I do want people to be happy, but I just hate seeing people pick partners for the wrong reasons.

What did you think of the finale? Did she choose wisely? And WHO is the next Bachelor? I’m team #JamesTaylor myself! Let me know in the comments below.

Love love,

Amanda
