Okay, okay. I'm joining the "Bachelor Nation" for this one. This past Monday, March 13th, was "The Final Rose" for "The Bachelor." It caused a variety of different emotions among the female population; some were majorly heartbroken, while others were joyful. I was one of those who were heartbroken. When it is down to the final two ladies left in the journey to get engaged, you form a sort of connection with them. Well, I mean, you have been watching their lives play out on reality television for thirteen weeks.

This season of the Bachelor, Nick sent a lot of heartbroken ladies home, but you can't help but wonder, did he make the right decision when it came down to Raven and Vanessa? Some will say yes, he did. I beg to differ on this one. I believe that Nick and Vanessa did have a great relationship, but watching them talk about serious issues brought out some issues. Vanessa wanted him to sacrifice his beliefs, but she wasn't willing to do the same. She would always say something on the lines of "I'm not sure if I want to be engaged anymore," and, to me, that was a huge red flag.

Raven stole the hearts of many with her southern belle roots. I personally thought that Nick would've chosen Raven to propose to. They always had that chemistry, and when she finally started opening up to Nick, it was meaningful and heartfelt; with Vanessa, I felt she said it just to say it. It was truly heartbreaking when we watched Raven get out of the first limo (as we all know what that means) and Nick just repeating the same goodbye lines that he used on the rest of the contestants. Raven was so classy and elegant. If anyone deserves to find love, it is her.

What really threw me off about "The Final Rose" is that during their time in their hometowns, Vanessa's family basically attacked Nick. Literally, her sister told him that if he were to break her heart, she would hate him. Oh, okay. Vanessa's father wasn't going to give Nick the blessing to propose to her if it were to her. Then she got all upset saying that since he asked the other contestant's fathers for their blessings, it wasn't as special. Like c'mon, you know there were four girls left. She made me mad during this episode as she basically had an attitude with Nick towards the end. Raven's hometown was the best out of the four. I say this because she showed him her southern roots. Her family was so warm and welcoming to Nick, and he witnessed the best news for her family. You can definitely see the love she had for him.

During the "Fantasy Suites" episode, Raven told Nick that she was in love with him and it was heart-filled and well thought-out. She did not want to mess up that magical moment. And every girl knows how hard it is to express their feelings for someone and come out with the words, "I love you." For her to actually say it to him should've hit a soft spot in his heart. In Vanessa's fantasy suite, well was hard to watch at the sense they were discussing the what-ifs more than express the love that they supposedly have.

Yeah, it's his life, and who he chose to spend it with was up to him. But he chose wrong, and Raven deserves all the love in the world.
