Awesome post. I was thinking this, but couldn't get it all down in words. No need to now. Great job.Originally Posted by jr956678;3075540;
Two other thoughts: This is why I think the Bachelorette works better than the Bachelor. Men are ok fighting over one woman, and the man who wins is honored to have tromped the other guys, even if the woman did have strong feelings for the men. In fact, it may intensify their sense of satisfaction in conquering the other men. (To put it in cave man terms. )
Second, anyone remember the research about happy marriages that goes something like this (paraphrased very simply): Marriages are more likely to be happy and long-lasting when the man is more in love with the woman than the woman is to the man? That is not to say that they aren't both deeply in love, but when men feel a bit insecure, in my opinion, they behave better. More reason to believe that a match with Jeremy or Jason would be better than with Jesse or Graham.
