The Bachelor finale is finally this Monday. The word is out that Ben is engaged to someone, but is it JoJo or Lauren B.? If the couple can survive the drama of the show and the taxing media attention and make it to the alter, we expect we'll all get to watch the wedding in a special televised event.
The start of the 4,532nd season of The Bachelor means my wife has reinstated her ongoing Bachelor viewing parties with some of her female friends. Rather than rolling my eyes and hiding out in my non-existent mancave, I crack a beer and settle in next to her on our couch...because I love my wife, because I'm secure in my masculinity, and -- most importantly -- because I actually enjoy it.
In thinking through the hundreds of breakups I've seen on this show, I've learned so much about how to dump someone. And listen, take your, "but they aren't even real relationships on this show" nonsense elsewhere; everyone is allowed to feel deeply in any setting where they make themselves vulnerable for a love interest.
