Re: Narrowing the field - Final 2/4 Spoilers/Speculation?
In the absence of sc for the finale I went through and compiled quotes by Matt in regards to the final one and what he's looking for since often times we refer to them. I don't know if it will help but I did find some things that I hadn't noticed before.
And I definitely found love, and yes, they lived up to my expectations. You know, it was incredible. I'm still buzzing from it now.
the one thing I was really interested in was just someone who's going to make me laugh.
My parents don't - they're brilliant, they don't cast their opinions to me. They just, sort of, try and just make me aware of their observations and they never, you know, push in any way. They let me make my own mind up, but they do offer some very good advice, and they did through this process, so I've been grateful for it.
But it's really just - yes, I think it was in the lines of them, you know, it was a lifelong partner thing and the characteristics that get you as a partnership, as a team, as husband and wife or boyfriend/girlfriend, would get you through life, not just in the short term by the long-term characteristics.
Just going through those points with them, you know, where it really helped out. And you know, it made me realize that - I guess it's just, you know, in the early part of a relationship, you have that buzz, and that isn't always there. You need a depth and substance to get through all the hurdles and barriers that life throws at you and I think I was just getting - you know, I was aware of that, but just getting that across to me again was really helpful.
Well, I just love people who just do stuff, a little bit random. I've got a stupid random sense of humor and I love people who do random stuff. You know, don't get me wrong not, you know, ridiculously random like you're going to freak people out, but I just - I love people who do stuff but do it a bit different and stand out.
Someone that makes me laugh and gets along easily with me.
"The one thing I was really interested in is someone who's going to make me laugh," he said. "Someone that would standout. Someone that you look at them and you just think you've got something a bit different. That's what I was really looking for."
I really did [find love.] I found an incredible individual. I am confident it will work. I am buzzing right now."
That said, he doesn't believe in love at first sight. "I believe in infatuation." Then he adds, "I knew I was in trouble. I fancied her as soon as I saw her."
I'm aware of the pressure on the women to kind of mold themselves into something for me."
"It's a combination going with your heart and your head".
He’s looking for a woman “to make me laugh and someone who is very social, close to family and friends and someone who is smart, who can challenge me. American women are much more sporty than British women. I love their flirty side.”
He's looking for a woman who is adventurous, playful and fun, who loves to travel and enjoys the outdoors. His future mate will be funny, self-deprecating and outgoing.
However Matt yearns to share stories and a laugh at the end of the day with someone special
Chris Harrison on the finale: We know for a fact he is very happy and very much in love, which is surprising for this show. Our crew, we get just as sucked in as the viewers do. We’re sitting there at that final rose ceremony just hanging on every word. Is there going to be a proposal? How’s it going to end? Is he going to stay? I know some of our fans were peeved after what happened, but after seeing this, they’re going to be very back on board.
"I like women who stand out from the crowd. Who have unique characteristics and skills. I loved the arm wrestling." (This was in response to "who stood out in a good way the first night?")
