Madi And Luke P. And Ultimatums  Because They Are More Alike Than We Think

What's so bad about wanting someone all to yourself?

Madi And Luke P. And Ultimatums  Because They Are More Alike Than We Think

For those of you who have stuck around, I have news for you - I was not a fan of Luke P. and I am still not.

BUT, that's not the point.

Here is a low down on the people I am talking about - Madi, aka, Bachelor Nations sweetheart and the apple of almost everyone's eye, recently (on the show) opened up about her virginity. Shockingly enough, this is something people have praised her for, it is something so many people have been lifting her up for. Despite a lot of positivity coming her way, there is also the normal judgment that has come with it.

She has been compared a lot to Luke P., who for those of you who live under a rock was the villain of Hannah Brown's season of the Bachelorette. In all honesty, I agree that he was a tad bit controlling and didn't say things the way he should have, but I also think that TV has a way of portraying people in a certain way and they did that with him.

The truth is both of these people hold their faith to a very high standard which is something we, as Christians, should be so thankful for. Even if they aren't perfect we should be glad there are brothers and sisters who are willing to use a platform as secular as that one to share the Gospel. Through this, both shared that they did not support their significant other sleeping with anyone else on the show.

There is a difference between the two, though.

Luke = not a virgin

Madi = virgin

When Luke was sharing with Hannah his story and his current beliefs, the way he told her he didn't want her to be intimate with someone else did come across as judgemental. But at the same time, it came across as real. I was quick to speak poorly about him when originally watching it, so I watched it again. He said exactly what he wanted and needed to say in the best way he knew how and we cannot judge him for that.

With Madi, she was slow to the truth, she spoke honestly and out of love. There's no difference between what she said to Peter and what Luke said to Hannah, except how it was presented. We were all so quick to say that Luke was the bad guy for telling Hannah she couldn't, but didn't Madi do the same thing? She admitted to it.

She should have said what she said.

Luke should have said what he said.

Those conversations are vital in relationships. They are conversations people should be having more often because they are big and hard and scary. These two believers did it on TV, and that is what is crazy. They had the boldness to speak honestly about their beliefs to people who probably don't believe the same way that they do. We are quick to praise one and so easily tear down the other. One becomes a role model and the other becomes controlling.

Luke made mistakes on the show. He was nasty, he was rude, and overall he just did not come across as likable. But he was on a TV screen, we only saw what we were supposed to see and sure we definitely saw the ugly, but that doesn't mean that is who he is. Madi was careful with her words, and praise the Lord for that. I am thankful she spoke with kindness and certainty, but what she said was no different than Luke P.

The truth is, people can say what they want about these situations - the main being, "they knew what they signed up for." Honestly, they didn't. The purpose of the fantasy suites is to have alone time, away from cameras, away from other relationships, just alone. If you listen to podcasts or watch videos then you'll know most of the people who make it to Fantasy Suites spend time just getting to know each other better. Are there people who use it differently? Absolutely, but these two signed up for a show to find love, not sex.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

The Best Bagel Recipes For Every Personality Type, In Case You Need Another Excuse To Eat Carbs

I'll approve of pasta for breakfast any day, but this is more socially acceptable.


I've had times in my life at which I've told myself I need to cut out carbs. Those moments last about a minute or two before I start daydreaming about rice and pasta.

Bagels hold a special place in my heart — for many of my college friends and me, a bagel sandwich was the go-to breakfast after a long night of drinking. Years later, I still love to indulge in the occasional carb-filled breakfast. As much as I love putting in an UberEats order from bed, nothing beats the feeling of pulling some fresh-baked bread or pastries out of the oven.

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.
