    Re: Ed **Spoilers**

    I don't know. I think it's probably more risky to pick a guy we know has issues because he admitted to it on his 1 on 1 date. I know I could never be with someone like that even though I wash my fruits and veggies, lol. As far as people's motives in posting, it's pretty clear that certain people want Ed to be a bad guy and it's their right to believe it just as it's my right to ignore them.

    Much more interesting to me is that Ed is finally back on Monday so even if the show drags on I have something to look forward to in the end. Out of 4 of us who watch the show at work 2 of us love Ed, 1 loves Reid but has read the writing on the wall and is watching him for herself, and the other doesn't have a favorite. Everyone thought the last epi was boring although I loved the scenery.

    Some people are nice people but not good boyfriends/girlfriends. One of my oldest, dearest friends is a horrible relationship risk---he's a great friend, a funny guy, one of the smartest people I've ever known, and would lay down in traffic for me---but he is really bad at boyfriend/husband relationships---really, really bad at them. Just because Ed is successful and a fun guy doesn't mean he's great at relationships. Could he have a jilted ex who exaggerates and is seeking vengeance? Sure he could. Could he have one or more ex'es who he's treated poorly and have every right to view him as a lousy boyfriend? Sure he could. Just because you like the edit he's being given doesn't mean you can dismiss the repeated rumors that surface regarding his relationship past. It doesn't make him a horrible person, it would just make him a high-risk significant other. JMO, as always.
    I think that's pretty much the point I was trying to make - those rumours could be true as could the ones about his remaining very good friend with an ex - to the point where he takes her to family gatherings. I'm not dismissing anything outright - just taking it with a dose of skepticism and if both rumours end up being true then the fact that he's still good friends with one doesn't make him a high-risk significant other.

    That's what I expect too although I do sort of/kind of keep hoping it will turn into the real deal. Don't know why, it's not as though I will ever know or meet these people and if I did don't even know for sure if I'd actually like the 'real' version of them. Like what I've seen (but is that 'real')?

    Exactly. And hereīs something to ponder, it isnīt always the guys fault. I wonder how her past relationships and breakups would look under a microscope

    I am not being snarky or at all sarcastic---how does the credible info indicate that?? (see bolded above)

    LOL no snarkiness taken If you can go back and read Bloomers posts on this thread she tells us what she learned through her sources I trust what she relays to be honest info, and like I said read between the lines

    Actually, Bloomers, I don't think this is the debate that's driving this season. I see Ed's return as one of many. As someone said, this season's theme is Bachelorette: The Revolving Door.

    I have read all of Bloomers' posts. I read different things between those lines. Guess it's all a matter of interpretation and point of reference.

I usually discard rumours, but when the same rumours are posted on different boards, by different posters, and these rumours seem plausible (not necessarily the ones about the ex girlfriends, but the job related ones and what he did during the two weeks he was off the show), I think there might be some truth to them. Of course we will never really know and everyone is free to believe what they want.
    How do we know they are from different posters? It could all be from the same troll creating different screen names and then other people who want to believe the rumors perpetuate them...
