The Most Boring Bachelor

The Most Boring Bachelor

Nice guys are the best guys.

"The Bachelor" franchise has been around for years now. I have just recently began watching it and now I'm madly in love. I started with Ben Higgins' season at season 20. I absolutely loved the drama the show created and The Bachelor himself, Ben. Everyone I've talked to or read on "The Bachelor" fan pages all say the same thing, "He's so boring." I thought differently; I thought he was the best and my eyes were glued to him. Five reasons why I thought Ben Higgins was the best Bachelor ever.

1. He seems so real.

I fell madly in love with Ben Higgins because he seemed so genuine to me. I felt that he honestly cared about finding love and the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. I thought he really cared about each and every girl on the show. Ben also cried on the show. As a man, the stereotype is that men don't cry and the fact that he did on national television shows that he does care.

2. He respects people.

Women and men, Ben always responded with care and thought put in his words. He treated people how should be treated, with respect.

3. He wasn't there to cause any drama.

With reality television, there always has to be drama. While there was drama between the contestants (Olivia), Ben wasn't there to cause drama. He genuinely listened to each side of every problem and gave a thoughtful response. Every time he let a girl go, he actually seemed like he was upset that she was gone.

4. He's not perfect.

Ben came on the show believing that he was "unloveable." He ended up falling madly in love and told two women, Jojo and Lauren B, that he loved them both. Definitely a mistake to tell two people that he loved them but he's not perfect.

5. He's a mama's boy.

Just watching the way he and his mom interact with each other, it is clear that he loves his mama. Boys that love their mama are usually the sweetest, kindest, and most thoughtful guys in the world. I speak from experience.

Ben Higgins might have had a "boring" season but by far not boring. He is truly out to look for love and lucky for him, he found it. Nice guys like him are the best guys.

Now that The Bachelorette with Jojo is down to the final four guys, Chase, Luke, Jordan, and Robby, let's talk about who were the nice guys of the season. Clearly, Derek, James Taylor, and Wells have all of the qualities that make respectable men just like Ben Higgins. They are by far the sweetest guys that Jojo ever got the chance to know. They are not your typical meat-head guys, they are humble and happy guys. It's too bad that Jojo let them go.

To The Friends I Won't Talk To After High School

I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.


So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.

Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.

We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.

With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.

And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
