For those of you who, like me, sat glued watching "The Bachelorette" all summer long because you couldn't find someone to actually date in real life and resorted to living vicariously through TV, it was hard not to get attached to the people on the show. Even though none of these dating reality shows actually end up in a real lasting relationship, you still kind of imagine each time a new show starts that THIS time might be different.
In the last season of "The Bachelorette," Jillian refused two other proposals to end up with a man named Ed Swiderski. If you watched the last few episodes, you will know that Ed (or E.D. he should perhaps more appropriately be referred to) was not Mr. Perfect. He left the show because his job was more important to him, came back when he changed his mind, suffered from some stresses that affected his 'performance,' and certainly did not have the 10-pack abs that his competitor offered the audience. Regardless, Jillian chose him and got all excited about their engagement and long life together.
However, it now appears that Ed, technically speaking, is the worst guy ever. Even though he had some performance issues with Jillian, that didn't stop him from getting with two girls back home WHILE HE WENT ON HIS BREAK FILMING THE SHOW TO "FOCUS ON HIS CAREER". So during the time when he claimed to be so in love with Jillian that he decided to put his career on the line for her, he was actually just acting like a tramp.
Here is my issue with this: if you aren't Mr. Corny McSoulmate Von Find My Love On National TVberg, then don't go on the show! Stay home. Slut it up. If you know that you are a sleazebag or you can't control yourself, why make it someone else's problem? Just don't go on the show and let some other hopeless romantic take your spot. I just don't understand his motivation. Apparently you don't need the show to get girls because it seems considering that your batting average in the last few weeks alone consists of 3 different women and an engagement, you're doing okay for yourself attracting ladies. It just seems very selfish to me to go on the show to begin with, let alone cheat on the poor girl.
Is it too much to ask that men think a tiny bit before they act?
The answer appears to be yes.
