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.
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 show...like 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" myself.....so 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. Yep....you 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 hours....like 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 margaritas, Neither 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!
