I’ve watched quite a few seasons of The Bachelor and there’s a specific dynamic that occurs regularly. A suitor is harangued by the Bachelor (or Bachelorette) for not “opening up” and not “sharing their feelings.” This goes on for a period of weeks. Then finally said suitor opens up, shares their feelings and declares their love. What happens next? To their invariable surprise, the would-be paramour is promptly given the boot.
I speculate there’s a lesson in there somewhere.
