Ty may have spoken the truest words of the season. Hahaha
A big clue was CH's 5 to watch before the season started: Chris L, Frank, Craig M., Johnathan , and Justin were included in that. Then there is the tweet from CH that said we are going to fall in love with Chris L and his story. The red flags were blowing in the wind. I must be color blind.

Gosh everyone is so down on Ali. Is that because she didn't choose Chris or Roberto? Maybe she did go into this to find love and thought it would be with Frank. Then when that was squashed she didn't think it would be right to accept a proposal from another guy a week later. Or Maybe she really does enjoy the company of Chris Roberto and Kirk... but there was just something missing. If she were your daughter would you think she should agree to marry a guy who she didn't think was just right... (for whatever reason) or would you tell her she was young, smart, attractive and fun-loving girl who will have many men in the years to come?
Well, I'm getting a acclimatized to the end, where she won't choose Chris Not sure why it ends the way it does, but I'll watch to see how it plays out before throwing any stones at the girl. I liked her last season, and still like her and if Frank is really the one she fell for, I won't like her any less... but I will come to the conclusion that the girl just has bad taste in men... and maybe send her the name of a good counselor.

Love_Me .. I think that is true. I think it is sad that so many are willing to throw stones at her... but if she had chosen their favorite they would be applauding her and crying at the FRC.
She chose my favorite but still I try to give her a chance thinking she would change after the debacle on Jake season, and be a better person it doesnt look like she was looking for love just money. Maybe that is the show she should have gone on For love or Money.Originally Posted by Bonbonlover;3941739;
If I was friends with Ali since she is right around my age bracket, I honestly would tell her that she needs to stop picking losers and that the whole "there are too many fish in the sea" thing isn't really true. Guys in their 20s and 30s right now are in delayed extended adolescence. It is actually pretty hard to find a stable, mature, unselfish guy who isn't looking for an "accessory" while he pursues his dreams, career, fun, friends, whatever. I would tell her that she should really try dating out of type a bit because love actually does grow and unless he's totally unattractive maybe giving a guy with a great personality and great, compatible qualities is worth it, particularly since all of the guys she has chosen in the past have been duds. The ever elusive spark is important but not even really foundational in establishing a life long relationship because sparks come and go but commitment is the foundation of lasting love (particularly today when people divorce practically on a whim).Originally Posted by Bonbonlover;3941729;
I would tell her she doesn't have to marry the guy but to just give it a shot because you never know and I would tell her that I get the whole career thing- I am ambitious as well and I understand wanting money and fame, but it isn't real and doesn't last and companionship and family are really key and if you meet someone who gets that, you should hold on to him. Finally, I'd tell her that you don't have to kiss a ton of frogs to find a prince. Sometimes life just presents him to you and you should have the wisdom and maturity to go for it.
Honestly, I feel like having too many options, whether it be relationally or vocationally, is crippling my generation and making us emotionally stunted and immature. I definitely don't think Ali is a bad person. She seems like a 100% normal, regular girl....she is just totally prototypical of peeps in my generation and I am not sure that we aren't missing somethings that people in our parents and grandparents generations seemed to understand.

Basically - it all comes down to the general theme that has been expounded on time after time for this show - she/CH have kept up with the ''will he love me back'' theme - and that will be how it ends - Chris - I bet - lets her know not to choose him - Roberto turns her down - neither ''will love her back''
From the opening scenes - to the end - it is that simple IMHO
WHEW - Hang IN & Hang ON
