Impossible things are being done every day.
I think AshLee built up an unrealistic view of Sean throughout the season. She wanted so badly for him to be this perfect guy and when hes wasn't by him dumping her she looked for any way to knock him off that pedestal. Even if she the one that put him up there and not him. She viewed everything he said and did through that "perfect guy" filter which probably led her to misreading his body language and not fully comprehending what he was saying. It's entirely possible he made a comment like "the other girls don't matter when I'm with you" or "what I have with you is nothing like what I have with you." Both of these are completely true but when interpreted through AshLee's mind meant she was the final one because their relationship is so much more than the other ones when that's not what he said at all. The truth of this situation lies somewhere between what they both believe to be the truth. It happens, and probably quite often on this show.
With that said, I think AshLee harping on it and not letting it go reflects badly on her. Bring it up once, fine. Have your peace. But not letting it go and continuing to talk about it in every post WTA interview is too much and leaves a bad impression.

I've just read quickly through the latest posts.
Bless Sean's heart, he not only dodged ONE bullet (Tierrable), he dodged TWO (AshLee).
Based on what I recall/remember seeing of Sean throughout this journey (SORRY, Y'ALL, I JUST HAD TO GO THERE! ), I have to come down on his side of things about their WTA tango.
1. Regardless of whether or not I'd like to give him credit for it, I really, truly believe that all during this process, Sean absolutely WAS extra careful to not try to say anything that would make any of the women feel as though he was locking himself into a "happily ever after" scenario with ANY of 'em. Two reasons: Not only do I think TPTB nailed it into his head that he had to be careful with that (after all, they wanted to have us following the show like soggy puppies for the entire season!), but --- call me an idiot --- I honestly don't believe he is the type of person that is so loose with his tongue that he would NOT be extremely careful about what comes off it.
2. Based on what I've seen of Sean, he's been more than pretty consistent in that if, for whatever reason at whatever point in time he ain't feelin' you, you're gone. Couple of cases in point: Sarah, and Leslie, from the "Pretty Woman" date. Sarah lasted longer than Leslie did. But it seemed to me than when he'd made up his mind, that was it. And no, neither of those exits was particularly pretty or handled with much finesse, but, everybody's human and you can't have everything, I suppose.
Bottom line: He MIGHT'VE seriously been into AshLee at one point, but she stepped in it and smeared it around, so SHE made herself a no-go.
We've all pretty much come to the conclusion that AshLee has issues. SERIOUS issues. I have to say that I DO get a BBB (i.e., Bunny Boilin' Bitch) vibe from her. Not to a Tierrable extent, perhaps, but, for me, it's there. DEFINITELY.
The ordering the ring. The Machete Eyes. The "You SAID it! WHY DON'T YOU JUST SAY YOU SAID IT!" at the WTA. Even floating her that the TPTB might've asked or TOLD her to show her ass like that at the WTA session (as an "audition", as it were, for The Bette), WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE COERCED, BULLIED, WHATEVER, INTO MAKING YOURSELF APPEAR LIKE AN UNHINGED, BALL-BREAKING LUNATIC? Just to get the lead on a freakin' TV SHOW?
What bachelor in his right mind would see that and sign up for this circus if YOU were The Bette, after he saw that?
Far as I'm concerned, AshLee did much, much better with the ME, and saying little or nothing during her exit. She should've LEFT it at that.
Because coming in and coming out swinging and throwing darts at Sean on the WTA like she did, she made herself appear to BE a 14-carat BBB.
And at the end of the day, she has nobody to blame for that but herself.
JMHO, and good riddance to cray-cray rubbish.
