Would You Accept This Red Flag? The Bachelorette Kept The Guy Who Slid Into DMs In Quarantine

Pssst. There are spoilers ahead!

"The Bachelorette" is finally back but just because Clare Crawley is the oldest bachelorette in the show's history (they keep reminding us of this as if she's 70 years old) and knows exactly what she wants, that doesn't mean some bullsh*t won't slip through the cracks once in a while.

Last night, on the season 16 premiere, Tyler C revealed to Clare some gossip he had heard from a friend with a mutual connection to another contestant on the show, Yosef. Allegedly, Yosef had been DMing Tyler C's friend while quarantined before the show. While, of course, it's a known fact you never want to be the snitch of the season and, therefore, Tyler C was not surprisingly sent home, Yosef got the rose!

Would you have given Yosef the rose if you were Clare?

Personally, Yosef would've gotten the boot from me. Why? Because the reality is, whether or not he slid into people's DMs in quarantine before coming on the show doesn't matter. The problem for me would be he's already wasting precious time that could be spent in much more productive ways than chatting about whether he said "Hey beautiful" to someone in her DMs.

Nobody has time for that. Especially someone who's trying to get engaged at the end of "The Bachelorette."

Even though it's a (hopefully) harmless red flag, Clare had 30-plus other men who weren't pulling her aside to waste her time. She should have focused on them, which she did after a few moments with Tyler C and Yosef, but in the end, she gave Yosef the rose anyway. Do I think he'll make it far? No. So why keep him? Probably because the producers made her, but if it were up to me, gooooooodbye Yosef.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
