The Bachelor....Shhhh Its a Secret

Welcome to Take Two of March’s Secret Subject Swap. This week, 13 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My subject is "How I Really Feel About The Bachelor"  It was submitted by  
BIG A and little a.   

Here it goes: 

The truth is...  I have never watched the ever!  

I am just not all that sappy business.  
Of course I believe in love.... and I am so very happy that I found it.  
I do believe in love at first site, although I have not experienced it.

I just never understood why all these "great" women would feel the need to go on a national show and fight over one man....a man they have never met when they sign up for the show.  They will put it all out there.  Like ALL of it...

They are CRA CRA to the max!  More crazy than some of you blogger people...really they are!  <wink>
They are in little to no clothes fighting to the end. Trash talking, back stabbing and making out.....wasn't that what we did in high school? Wait.....why isn't DaddyCool watching this?

Here's the thing if you wrap all the time this hunka hunka burning love has with these women it is less than a week time.  I don't know about you, but I could be anyone for a week.  This isn't enough time to get to know these people for who they really are.  But what do I know....I have never watched the show.  I actually went against the grain on "acceptable time before marriage" what do I know

What I do know is this.... people can meet the mate of their dreams in many ways and many times when they are least expecting it.  I met my Bachelor on the internet. read that right...on the computer.  I was a working Master's student and he was home recovering from a work injury that resulted in surgery.  He was bored at home on drugs...that probably explains a lot right there.  He wrote me an innocent email from a meeting board.  We exchanged emails for a few weeks before he even asked to call me.  I enjoyed having someone that liked and understand my humor.  When he finally asked to call me I was a bit scared.  What if all these LOLs weren't really true and I wasn't who he thought.  Then I got more scared.....what if he isn't who I thought?!  The first night we talked on the phone for time to get up and shower for work now hours long.  It was crazy....but it paid off.  We planned a lunch date because I didn't want to commit to a dinner....ha ha  ya I am a control freak like that!  I didn't want the date to end.  We saw this little old couple drinking margaritasNeither of us said anything about it that day.....but when he asked me to marry him he mentioned it.  He had seen it too.  He wanted to grow old with me to have some margaritas! 

We had our first date in December, were engaged in March and married the next January.

People thought we were crazy....and actually told us this.  We are still happily married and I couldn't imagine my life without him.  He balances me (check out this post if you haven't written by DaddyCool himself.  We are just right.  

Ironically those same people who thought we were so off base are now divorced and on to their next relationship adventure. 

 I would love to hear how you met your soul mate...and then go check out these other swap posts!                                                                                                               


  1. I have never watched the show either. I can't handle it. I want the Real World back. Well, the Real World pre Road Rules, before it got dumb lol.

  2. LOVE the old couple part! He sounds like a mega keeper.

  3. Beautiful story of how you got together. Sometimes you just know! I believe "The Bachelor" could be entertaining but to find a lifelong mate...maybe not so much.

  4. You guys have a real story based on shared interests and compatibility, not who won the contest to put the best version of themselves forward just long enough. I don't watch those shows. Been thinking about you, mama. xo

  5. aww! That is just such an awesome story!
    Now, to confess: I haven't seen the Bachelor either! I mean, I have but I couldn't make head or tail out of it, so I didn't watch any more!! But, I keep seeing references in my Facebook updates and on Twitter, so I thought this may be an easy prompt! hahahaha!!!
    I so love your story so many 100 times better!! I would love to grow old with my man and (continue to) sling margaritas together!!

  6. I can't watch that show because I can't stand watching people make fools of themselves publicly. And I love that you shared your own story. It makes so much sense to spend time talking and establishing a connection before you meet. Here's to many years of Margaritas.

  7. Aww, I love that you and Daddy Cool just knew it was right and jumped right in! Good for you and poo on the nay-sayers!

    I've never watched the Bachelor either. Gag!!

  8. I don't like the Bachelor, kinda degrading to fight over a guy you don't even know, don'tcha think? But I LOVE your story :) When you know, you know right? Hubs and I met in October, got engaged in May, and married in September. Here's to bucking tradition!

  9. You must watch The Bachelor if for nothing else, for pure comedic enjoyment. I write posts making fun of it quite regularly, so if you don't want to watch the show, this should give you a laugh or two, but without all the painful interviews of girls in bikinis crying over a guy they've known for 2 days.


    I also knew immediately that I was going to marry my husband. We bought a house and moved in together after 6 weeks. People thought we were crazy (we probably are). We are ridiculously happy and still live in that house. We both agree we're glad we never had to stoop to the low of going on The Bachelor.
