    The lisp disappears. (I listened for all of 2 minutes - which is all anyone w/a brain could possibly take.)
    I highly doubt he's gay, but do wonder what'd motivate a Christian to go on a show as shallow as Bachelorette, in search of a soul mate.

    Frankly, the whole thing sounds contrived. What I wouldn't be able to do, (aside from showing my face on that moronic show), is act like the airhead deluxe that chickie-poo just pulled off. Not for all the money in the world.

    FWIW, according to the script I just heard, he wasn't judging her for a minute; he simply wanted to know where they stood.

    Another fwiw -- Fantasy Suites is a suite where the lovely lady takes a guy she wants to get to know a little more ...intimately - ahem.

    And now that I feel like I just watched an episode of As the World Turns My Stomach, I need to go shower ...or something.

    Yes, unfortunately, people do watch this stuff. On May 27th, Memorial Day, beginning about 10PM, my area was hit by a series of strong (EF3&4)tornados. One of the local tv stations was airing the Bachelorette at the time.
    The station received so many angry calls from viewers demanding they return to the silly show that the station meteorologist lost his cool on the air and told the viewers off in a rant that went viral in the following days.

    Gee, and here I thought only the show was shallow.

    *Something just occurred to me re: the particular episode discussed in this thread.
    The Chickie-Poo asks how the guy has any right to judge her.

    Excuse me? Isn't that exactly what she is doing, in JUDGING which guy she find most suitable for her?

    Sex is more than genital gratification. It's bonding - how the body affects the brain, the way smelling bacon frying can make you hungry. The way watching someone puke can make you nauseous.

    Bonding, is what makes marriage work. Women (and men, to a lesser degree) who want to be sluts, can be sluts. Can screw three men a day, if they want. But they're not good choices for men who want stable marriages, and they are going to fail if they try to form a pair bond.

    Men have that instinct but to a lesser degree. Men use love to get sex. Women use sex to get love. It's reality - like how some people have penises and others do not.

    Who watches that idiotic program, anyways???
    No watchy TV

    I hadn't really thought of it that way, but you're right. I will admit, however, that it was annoying that men who slept around were deemed "studs," but the women they slept with were "sluts." It was both the imbalance, and entire hypocriticalness of it, that bugged me.

    You hit on a good point, too, when it comes to bonding. A good, strong bond in the earlier years of your marriage will get you through the later years, when that type of intimacy isn't the 'flair', shall we say, that it once was. But the friendship you've developed is another kind of intimacy that means everything in the world.

    The marriages that last, are usually the ones to high-school classmates. Or at least to the ones who were the first-serious ones.

    I have seen it both ways. My ex's parents...intellectually and socially they were a gross mismatch. All they had in common was that they were from the same small Ohio town. She was his first; I would guess she was early in her career of being a teen slut.

    But they got married while he was in his first year of college. She barely finished high school. He got his MBA. She was a hot number, but faded early, too. He, interestingly, lost his geek-look and became a well-packaged middle-aged man.

    Their marriage lasted and lasted.

    Then a girl in my own grade in school. Kind of a sad package. Brother ten years older; I think he molested her. She was sleeping around and proud of it from age 13. Pregnant at 15 - Daddy got her an abortion. Pregnant again at 16 - Daddy said, no more, you marry him.

    She did. Fast-forward 20 years, and she had four kids from THREE husbands. And was divorced. She couldn't bond.

    Another woman, very wise, explained it to me this way...she was telling me how she taught her teen daughter. This was over 20 years ago, BTW. But the lesson was this way:

    She took a strip of duct-tape and put on her daughter's blouse. See how it sticks?

    Now, peel it off. Put it on me. See how it sticks? Not quite so nice.

    Now, peel it off me; and stick it on yourself again. Not sticking so well, anymore...is it.
