    Please pattycake, just go watch again or better still lets just agree to disagree.
    She chose ed over reid. I don't need to argue with you cause there's nothing to debate. I really like Reid and if jillian had chosen him I would have been happy for them. I just see them more as best friends and there's nothing wrong with that. I married my best friend so I know that can be great. I just think jillian was more physically attracted to kip and ed. JMO

    It is all perception (and memory). What I remember are many times when Ed is stroking her arms or thight and brushing her hair back out of her eyes.

    IA I personally see them all affectionate...Jillian must see Ed as reciprocating her otherwise I dont think he would be in F2 JMHO

But in rewatching her date with Ed, I can tell she is into him almost as much as Reid based on her body language alone. I think I may have believed that she and Reid had the only real connection because I focus on his body language so much. That's because I love a man who shows his love that way. I think I dismissed her connection with Ed because he doesn't show her physically as much as Reid does. But that does not mean that Jillian is not into him as much Reid.

    I've posted before about how she's testing Reid and really loves him. But that was completely based on reading a lot into the secret "ILY" and "call me" stuff at the F3 RC. If I didn't believe there were any secret exchanges, then I would definitely think she cut Reid because he wasn't ready. And since she appears to be into Ed as much, is fine with her decision to cut Reid as difficult as it may have been. Now if all the secret stuff at the bench was real and not imagined, then all bets are off - she loves Reid. Barring that, I think she may love Ed and he is her F1.

    Now that I've gone back and opened my eyes about her connection with Ed, I am preparing myself for some misery because it isn't completely obvious that she was only into Reid.

    To all the Reider's out there, if you're bored, check out her dates with Ed but only use her body language as a clue as to who she loves and remove Reid's from the equation. What do you see?
    I agree, and have agreed all along that Jillian is attracted to Ed (and Kip) in addition to Reid. Attraction and connection are separate issues. As are her feelings about the guys vs. the guys' feelings about her. Jillian had difficult decisions to make in her final choice because she had determine not only who she was most attracted to, but also who returned her feelings sincerely. Regardless of who she wound up choosing, if anyone, I think that decision-making process was very difficult and I am uncertain that she had all the necessary/relevant info prior to making her choice.

    I suppose the gf stuff could be brought out in the last epi, but I'm not sure they need to do that. There will be enough drama with Reid returning and being rejected a second time, and Kip's rejection.

    I guess it all hinges on when Jillian was made aware of the gf(s).
    Or IF. I wish someone could find out whether or not she was ever told anything.

    Actually, unless she waits until ATFR, she has chosen and if ATFR has been taped she had definitely chosen unless she decides to date 2 a la Charlie.

    You're not losing it, I remember it too. She also said something about not choosing the popular choice (i'm paraphasing).

    To catch him in that many lies and give him that many chances while finding out he's also dating others - he must engender a heck of a lot of trust.
