Blake's Thoughts After His Broken Proposal

6 Quotes From Blake's 'Bachelorette' Finale That Anyone Who Has Been Dumped Can Relate To

He proposed to Becca, and she chose Garrett. Ouch.


On the season finale of "The Bachelorette," Becca told Blake that he worried too much and that her relationship with Garrett was less instantaneous. First of all, it was normal for Blake in his situation competing with 27 other guys for one girl to worry and wonder if anything he had with Becca was real. That anxiousness meant that he's human, it didn't mean that he wouldn't be a great life partner. Second, Becca gave Garrett the first impression rose so how less instantaneous can their relationship really be? She said throughout the show that she could see herself marrying Blake, that he challenged her, and that they were so alike. Then who did she choose? Yep, still not Blake. We can all relate to many of the thoughts Blake had after his broken proposal. First came the hurt, and then came the healing.

1. "What did I do wrong?"

When a relationship ends, the first thing we usually ask ourselves is, "What did I do wrong?" We stumble through the past few days, wondering if we said or did the wrong thing that turned the person we loved away from us. Blake was good enough and he was exactly who Becca wanted, but she still didn't choose him. That was on her end, not his.

2. "I had always imagined that moment with me."

We all have that one ex who moves on to someone else, and then you see pictures on Instagram of them doing things together that he or she never did with you. Blake laid out his whole heart to Becca and was ready to get down on one knee, but the proposal moment that he had imagined between him and Becca ended up being Garrett's moment.

3. "Now I have to go through this all alone."

I know that most of us have had this moment. This moment when you truly realize that everything is over, that you are alone, and that you now have to figure out how to put yourself back together. You feel this hurt throughout your whole body, but you remember that you have felt like this before and you made it through once, so you can make it through again.

4. "It was as real for her as it was for me."

Sometimes we just need to know that it wasn't all in our head. We need to know that they did care, they did love us, and for a while they did want the relationship to work out as much as we did. For a while, Blake thought that it could've all been a lie or a game, but hearing Becca say that she loved him helped Blake quiet his head a little bit better.

5. "I truly hope she's found the happiness that she's looking for."

When you really love someone, you want them to be happy — even if that's not with you. Blake wishing happiness for Becca, even after she broke his heart, proves how genuine and strong of a man he really is.

6. "I know my person is still out there."

It's me, I'm your person.

This was Blake's second heartbreak. His past relationship broke him to a point where he strongly believed that he would never fall in love again. His relationship with Becca broke him again, but this time he realized that it was possible for him to fall in love again after heartbreak.

As far as I could see on The Bachelorette, Blake did everything right, and he was exactly what Becca was looking for. Her not choosing Blake, in the end, shows that we can be good enough and be everything someone wants, but he or she still might not choose us. We need to accept that and look towards better opportunities ahead.

The best part of the finale was Blake's positive outlook on love after his relationship with Becca: "The experience didn't scare me off the idea of finding love. If anything, I know just how capable of finding love, I am."

Blake, I was rooting for you. If by chance you read this, I'm very single.

13 Movies Every Couple Needs To Watch Before They Get Married

Let's be honest, Rachel McAdams is in all the best love stories.


These 13 movies are the foundation of any long-lasting relationship, and I'm not joking. Each movie will show you something new about your partner, and make you ask each other the hard questions. How many kids do you want and how are you going to raise them? What would happen if you got into a horrible accident? Some are less serious though, like what if you could time travel?

I promise that not every one of these movies is a Nicholas Sparks classic, and I also promise that not every movie has Rachel McAdams in it!

1. "The Time Traveler's Wife"

This movie is both heartbreaking and amazing.

2. "About Time"

Let's be honest, Rachel McAdams is in all the best love stories. It's on Netflix right now, so grab some snacks and turn it on!

3. "Like Crazy"

This infamous Tumblr gif came from "Like Crazy." It's about a couple who goes long distance and build their life together. I used to cry every time I watched it, and I'm no crier! It also has the (now famous) Felicity Jones in it.

4. "The Notebook"

Every girl wants this kind of love.

5. "The Last Song"

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are literally married now so if that isn't good luck, I don't know what is.

6. "Safe Haven"

You guessed it! This is another Nicholas Sparks classic. This movie has a dark twist as well, which men will love.

7. "Inside Out"

You may be thinking that this one is a bit weird. Well, this movie will help both you and your partner understand each other's emotions better.

8. "The Choice"

This movie is great because the female lead is feisty and extremely intelligent, which usually doesn't happen in love stories. How do you keep the love alive with a woman who is hard to get, and even harder to keep entertained?

9. "The Longest Ride"

Originally I could not stand the main female lead (Britt Robertson) but now she is in one of my favorite shows (For The People), so I have no choice. This movie had me on the end of my seat, and as a rom-com it is a must.

10. "The Age Of Adaline"

I began loving the name 'Adaline' thanks to this movie. This unlikely love story and self love journey really gets me.

11. "The Vow"

Imagine falling in love with someone and building a life, but an accident forces you to start all over?

12. "Titanic"

If they don't have any sort of reaction to this movie, they are probably not the one for you.

13. "Yours, Mine, & Ours"

Yours, Mine, & Ours is a true classic. Are you Helen or Frank Beardsley? You should figure that out before you tie the knot!

You're welcome!
