5 Stages Of Falling In Love With "The Bachelorette"

5 Stages Of Falling In Love With "The Bachelorette"

Now your friends have turned on you and begin nagging you to watch the show with them.


If you haven’t been paying attention, this past Monday night, Rachel Lindsay, aka the Bachelorette, revealed who her fiancée was in the epic "Bachelorette" season finale. Although I am completely invested in this show now, I wasn’t always. Here are the 5 steps we all go through before you fall in love with the Bachelorette.

1. Come on guys, this show is so stupid

You friends keep talking about this reality show and you insist that it is the dumbest thing you have ever heard of. People getting engaged after only 6 weeks of knowing each other?! You have way better things to do than watch 20 guys fight over some random defense attorney.

Now your friends have turned on you and begin nagging you to watch the show with them. You are forced to defend why you don’t want to watch this show. You insist that the love that is portrayed is fake and will most likely not last and that you don’t care about the people in the show!

So now you are tired of having this argument, so you agree to watch one episode. One episode won’t change your mind, right? You got your poker face on and you are ready to prove to all your friends why this show is ridiculous.

4. Guys, do you want to meet up next Monday?

Damn it, I am now invested! I can’t just watch one episode and not know who she is going to take into the fantasy suites?! I am going to text all my friends now and see who is free to watch the next episode. I will even provide snacks and stuff to make this a weekly event!

5. OH MY GOSH, she chose Bryan?!

WHY?????? I was so Team Peter! I guess Rachel and Bryan are cute, but did you see Peter’s face when they broke up?! I need time to emotionally recover from this finale. Bachelor in Paradise, here I come!

3 Reasons Why Step Dads Are Super Dads


I often hear a lot of people complaining about their step-parents and wondering why they think that they have any authority over them. Although I know that everyone has different situations, I will be the first to admit that I am beyond blessed to have a step dad. Yep, I said it. My life wouldn't be the same that it is not without him in it. Let me tell you why I think step dads are the greatest things since sliced bread.

1. They will do anything for you, literally.

My stepdad has done any and every thing for me. From when I was little until now. He was and still is my go-to. If I was hungry, he would get me food. If something was broken, he would fix it. If I wanted something, he would normally always find a way to get it. He didn't spoil me (just sometimes), but he would make sure that I was always taken care of.

2. Life lessons.

Yup, the tough one. My stepdad has taught me things that I would have never figured out on my own. He has stood beside me through every mistake. He has been there to pick me up when I am down. My stepdad is like the book of knowledge: crazy hormonal teenage edition. Boy problems? He would probably make me feel better. He just always seemed to know what to say. I think that the most important lesson that I have learned from my stepdad is: to never give up. My stepdad has been through three cycles of leukemia. He is now in remission, yay!! But, I never heard him complain. I never heard him worry and I never saw him feeling sorry for himself. Through you, I found strength.

3. He loved me as his own.

The big one, the one that may seem impossible to some step parents. My stepdad is not actually my stepdad, but rather my dad. I will never have enough words to explain how grateful I am for this man, which is why I am attempting to write this right now. It takes a special kind of human to love another as if they are their own. There had never been times where I didn't think that my dad wouldn't be there for me. It was like I always knew he would be. He introduces me as his daughter, and he is my dad. I wouldn't have it any other way. You were able to show me what family is.

So, dad... thanks. Thanks for being you. Thanks for being awesome. Thanks for being strong. Thanks for loving me. Thanks for loving my mom. Thanks for giving me a wonderful little sister. Thanks for being someone that I can count on. Thanks for being my dad.

I love you!
