I don’t know how I’ve been missing this thread!

So disappointed we have to wait for the other two but it’s likely becaues David and Ashley were so anticlimatic… we all knew what was coming.

His crying over his father drove me BONKERS! You were 7 and no offense but how do you know he was a great husband or father? You know what you were told…  FI lost his dad 8 years ago and I’ve seen him cry once in the past 4 years.

I wanted to weigh in after binge watching last night…

Ashley SUCKS.  Someone needs to let her know that she isn’t at all attractive herself; she is so shallow and rude.  Seeing the dirty looks she kept shooting at David, ew, get over yourself and wax that stache girl.

Vanessa is adorable and sweet.  Tres… hard to tell if he is truly feeling it.  They have chemistry I think, it would be nice to see more  than their forced peck-kisses when they walk into a room.  I think they look adorable together.

Sam and Neil do seem like a great “opposites attract” type couple.  I just do not think he is physically attracted to the girl.  He almost looks skeeved out by her (when she jumped on his back when they were fishing… anyone catch that?)  She is quirky but I find her very sweet.

Awesome show, can’t wait until next week.

Did you guys hear about the altercation between David, his girlfriend and his brother?

While I still don’t really like Ashley maybe she found out about this stuff during filming?

weatherbug:  My father died over 30 years ago.  I miss him every  single  day.  It took me over 20 years to just go to his grave as it hurt so much.   David is faking NOTHING.  And, I do think in many cases of young men, it is even harder on them to lose the father young.

chris32696:  I agree. I don’t doubt that David loves and adores and misses his father like he says he does.

My issue with him is that he seemed fake and seems to be playing it up- just the vibe he gives. I don’t find it odd that he didn’t visit his father’s grave often- I know a lot of people like that HOWEVER- It seems super fake that he all of a sudden decided to go visit his father’s grave ON CAMERA after all these years when you are on a tv show… smells fake to me.

Davis is a weirdo. At first I thought Ashley was being cold and not giving things a shot, but just a few episodes in I started seeing tons of red flags with David. When he said “I’m terrible at dating, but I know I’ll make an amazing husband!”, that set off alarms for me. He’s the type of person who ALWAYS has an excuse. No bad behavior is ever owned, he’s always some innocent doofus caught up in an “awe shucks” crossfire. He twisted the story of him texting another woman for drinks into knots. Of course he claimed it was to “get insight on Ashley” – lol ok. Then his arrest was all just a misunderstanding, sure. I’m sorry, his tantrum on Father’s Day was just plain weird. It’s one thing to be down and upset, but to basically have a violent outburst out of the thin air? Yeah, idk about that. I get the idea that he is a loser with women who wanted to lock in a wife via an arranged marriage. He’s also a bit of an attention whore.

Ashley I think really wanted a husband but unfortunately got saddled with the looney tune of the season. 

I get the vibe that Vanessa is a sweet, intelligent woman. I don’t get “wet blanket” from her at all – not everyone is a super high energy personality type, and that’s a good thing. She has some insecurities but it’s obvious to me she fell for Tres pretty hard during what I can imagine were very stressful and unusual circumstances, and was unsure if he was reciprocating. Trey seems like a basically decent guy but a bit of a playboy who needs to grow up. You don’t get to go out drinking all the time when you’re married and there’s nothing wrong with that. He’s not being oppressed by Vanessa – he needs to gain some maturity. IMO they have really good potential as a couple.

Sam annoyed the crap out of me at first – I could hardly watch their wedding bc she was so incredibly awkward and over the top with her energy (I’m sure it was nerves). She has definitely grown on me over time and seems like a pretty awesome person. Neil is harder to read but I have to say, he’s noticeably passive aggressive and I really don’t like that about him. I don’t think he’s rotten to the core or anything dramatic like that, but he says mean, provocative  things in that impossibly calm voice and then plays innocent when called out “oh, I was just joking”, “what? I was just saying..”. I think he was purposely being a bit manipulative with Sam when he said he didn’t miss her. Then she predictably gets upset and he’s all “oh, it’s nothing personal, it just takes me s long time to miss someone” – like, really dude? You couldn’t have guessed that was not the nicest thing to say? His passive aggressiveness would be a deal breaker for me. I think Sam needs someone who’s more emotionally honest and has more balls in general.

Well, I new the David and Ashley thing was going to happen from day one. No surprise. If that’s how he handles conflict (with what happened with his ex girlfriend), I’m glad she’s getting away from him.

I’ve been avoiding the Bee all day until I could watch the show!!!

tobemrsr:  it’s @therealdavidnorton

No surprise on the David and Ashely front.  I really really loved David in the beginning and felt so bad for him.  I do still feel a little bad for him, but I defiantley see some creeper, obsessive style about him.  I mean, how in the world can you keep “falling in love” with someone who clearly has no feelings for you, and you’ve outright been told that she is not attracted to you?! that would make me shut down, not push even harder.  I am still not a fan of Ashely though.  She used the “social media incident” as a crutch when saying she wanted a divorce.  She even said “and there are many other reasons.”  Well then say them, because David needs some form of closure besides the situation you are taking and running with as an excuse.

That police report on him is INSANE!!!! I also feel that he just wants someone to be married to, a companion, and he can’t get it in any other way than through a show.  His hashtags on the finale party pics included #willigetarose and #thebachelor #whensthedeadlineforthebachelor and #davidMAFSforbachelor    DESPERATE MUCH?!?!?!

I’m a little surprised that Neil has having questions about what he wants to do.  He’s always said that he is 100% invested and will do whatever it takes.  It’s like him and Sam flipped stances on the whole thing.  I do get that he is quetioning it, though, because of how she treated him in the beginning.  But she’s really come sooooo far. I guess it’s just a question of if she’ll stay that way or revert back to being mean after the decision.

Vanessa and Tres, they have to make it.  They just have to.  Yes, they each need to do some growing, but who doesn’t! And yes, they argue some and need to work on communication, but I feel like that stands true for every relationship and every marriage, no matter what part of it you are in.
