    I was thinking more of Mike being an example of good fathering; as in Mike has done a darn good job with his kids and Brad could learn from that. I don't think the age difference would matter in that case.

    To each thy own. Brad for whatever reason stated issues related to his father. Not for anything, but it seems his twin and other brother were able to move past this issue. Some remarks were made in the media about Brad's father commenting about said issues and being somewhat surprised about being the reason for Brad's commit phobia.

    Could be exaggerated some or maybe Brad has other issues besides his father.

    What does anyone make of the comment that Chantal's dad made to Brad about if you and Chantal have the opportunity to get married, I give you my blessing. Then in PI or VO, Mike says Brad and Chantal could get married tomorrow and I would give it my full blessing. Very strange wording.
    Fleiss puts everything in for a reason.

    Most of the time don't the parents say something like I would love to see them engaged or something like that?

    since brad is an old fashion guy, gentleman and very family oriented... I cannot imagine him proposing without the blessing of the dad.....
    Brad said on his first season that there was no way he would propose to anyone without first talking to the dad to get his blessing. According to Brad, the producers flew DeAnna's dad in, in case they could wrangle a proposal from Brad on the show.

    As far as we have seen, Brad did not meet Emily's father.

    There has been a tremendous emphasis placed in the edit on the emotional emptiness Brad feels for his father. On the other hand, he got on with Mike O'Brien like a house on fire; however, Mike O at the very most is only 17 years older than Brad. That is not typically the generation that we see in the Bachelor Hometown Dates when we view the potential father-in-laws.

    Obviously, Brad is looking up to Mike O with tremendous respect. He would be the father figure that Brad does not have in his life IF we are to believe the edit and what we have been told. Still, there is this crazy age difference of only 17 years which is not very much like a father.
    I saw Mike O's relationship with Brad as that of a business mentor - as well as someone whom he can turn to for advice in his personal life - being a good step-dad. The commonality in their personal backgrounds probably helped to forge a bond sooner than it would have otherwise.

    Reminds you of another season with a HTD. The talks.

    I also don't disagree with you, I think he liked and respected Emily a lot, after initially being very attracted to her, didn't mean to imply it was only about her looks. But to me, it doesn't appear that Brad is falling in love with her, although he is really trying to because like I said, who wouldn't want to? And that, coupled with producer encouragement, is why he takes her all the way to the end, although, IMO, he picks Chantal, because that's who he fell in love with (or thinks he did).

    Actually, if he ends up surprising me and picking Emily, I would have to give Brad a lot of credit, because that relationship is sure to be more complicated and fraught with obstacles (geography, parenting issues, influential family of ex to name a few), and I can't see him choosing her if he isn't madly (blindly?) in love and willing to overlook all these complications. On the surface, Chantal's situation is a piece of cake by comparison.
    IMO, Emily has the "geisha"(sp?) affect on Brad.

Not knowing how much a man really cares about you. Does he care about someone else? Especially this day & age. Guarantee Chantel is not the only one, she is just the only edit. I love how up front and honest Chantel is. SHe does wear her heart on her sleeve and she knows herself and her emotions well. She communicates it beautifully. Chantel has a huge heart and I am sure Brad sees that he will be loved and cherished. The tears will stop once she has him all for herself. Then there will be tears of love and joy. That is just the way of it and a Cancers heart.
    Do you know Emily's Sign, as well?
