Last week me and my girlfriend Catherine (fab blogger of The Life Styled) had so much fun watching Bachelor in Paradise and making fun BIP themed cocktails! So much fun in fact, that we decide to do it again this week! Yesterday I shared this Champagne Paloma drink on my blog. And today is more about sharing my thoughts on the episode and of course our Bachelor in Paradise themed outfits. Keep in mind, that when we were shopping for this we wanted our clothes to look like they would be appropriate in Paradise but also work for the upcoming fall weather! Details on our outfits are below the first pic. OK, now let’s talk about this episode!
Last night I couldn’t focus on anything other than Dean. Am I upset with him? Absolutely! But I want to start off by saying this, my blog never has been and never will be about tearing other people down. Blatantly publicly bashing someone isn’t healthy for the person doing the bashing and certainly isn’t helpful to the person they’re talking about. I want this blog to be a place where we talk about inappropriate behavior but never purposely try to bring a person down. So with that said, here’s why am so upset with Dean.
GET THE GLASSWARE THAT DRINKS ARE IN HERE!
Yes, it’s true that he told Kristina before the rose ceremony that he wanted to put the brakes on things. He was upfront about that. But he also told her he wanted to get to know her more. I just don’t believe him. I think he knew that he wasn’t that interested in her but by telling her that, he knew he had a better chance of getting a rose. Also his words said one thing but his body language said something completely different! He was rubbing her back and sitting super close to her (they were basically on top of each other at the rose ceremony) which in my mind are very strong signals to her that he is into her. So here she is, thinking that maybe he doesn’t realize how much he likes her. We have all been here before right? Where a guy tells you he doesn’t know how he’s feeling but then he acts like he’s into you into you so you believe that he doesn’t know what he saying and that you can “change” him. Or that one day he will wake up and realize that he loves you. At least I know I’ve been there!
Do I like Dean? Of course I do. He seems like a really nice guy that just has no idea what he’s doing. I truly believe that his age is playing a big factor here. He’s a young guy and I’m sure he’s never been in a situation where he’s basically dating two women at once. And even though in the “real world” his actions would be frowned upon. And I’m sure he knows that. He might feel that in Bachelor in Paradise world what he’s doing is OK. I just don’t think we write Dean off quite yet. I really believe that there is a lot of good in him even though he’s doing some not so great things right now.
He tried to do the right thing but in the end didn’t end up doing the right thing at all. At least that’s my opinion. Would you guys think? Let’s discuss in the comments below!
And last thing about Dean. I’m sorry but his kiss with D-lo was more than a “peck”! I was so upset when he wasn’t honest with Kristina about that. And the cake/half birthday thing? Oh Dean. You’ll quickly learn and you’ll be better for it.
That said, I absolutely adore Kristina and I hope she knows that she deserves a man who puts her first. She shouldn’t have to feel the way she’s feeling. And I know she thinks it’s more justified because she’s in “Bachelor in Paradise world ” but she really shouldn’t be put through this by a man that cares about her.
The last thing I want to say is I absolutely love Alexis! Not only was she there to comfort Kristina after the half-birthday thing, but her little break down at the end over her pizza had me cracking up laughing! She seriously the best!
Oh and last thing for real this time. Ha! Raven hasn’t met the right match yet. But I hope she does! Luv her!
