Today, I'm coming out of the closet, and am admitting that, yes, I am a Bachelorette fan. I cannot contain my guilty pleasure any longer, not on my blog, nor in my tweets, which may have already given away my fandom.
Monday nights have, surprisingly, turned into my Thursday nights. After TGIT ended for the season (sigh), I wanted to find a new night of television to celebrate. I had watched The Bachelor and The Bachelorette in the past with a good friend in college, but only recently rekindled this dangerous flame.
What I like best about this season, though, is Joelle Fletcher. JoJo is a total girl's-girl, and guy's-girl. I don't know her personally, but, to me, how she presents herself on television is everything, and a piece of lovely pie. It's not just my crush on her hair that has me excited about the season, but it's how true she is to being herself.
Joelle has been through a lot, like many of us have in relationships. Still, she opens herself up to finding someone. It's difficult to break down walls when you have them, especially if you've spent a lot of your energy building them high through the crumble of poisoned passion, but, when you embrace courage, and let go of fear, you feel free, and happier. Dating one person can be difficult enough, so I can imagine that having the amount of men to date that she does can be exceedingly challenging, especially when they're essentially in a competition to claim your sole love and affection.
