Bachelorette 2013: Is Desiree Hartsock Falling In Love Too Fast?
Okay, guys. Time for some real talk. We love Desiree Hartsock as the 2013 Bachelorette, and we hope that she can find true love. But girlfriend may need to slow her roll. We’re only on Episode 2, and she seems to be falling head over heels in love already — and with more than one guy, at that!
We get it: The Bachelorette is designed to heighten our emotions, take us on crazy romantic dates, and get us to fall madly in love right alongside the lead. But this all seems to be working a bit too well on Des.
Des’s very first 1-on-1 date of the season was with Utah cutie Brooks Forester, and the two had mad chemistry from the start. Between their romantic Hollywood date and an afternoon spent (no joke) trying on wedding dresses, Desiree seemed more than a bit smitten with her suitor. In fact, at one point, she even told the world: "I feel like we are newlyweds." Uh, okay.
Next came a 1-on-1 with Bryden Vukasin in romantic, pastoral Ojai, California. Des and Bryden also hit it off, and she even wrote B + D in a heart in the sand. That’s totally cute if you’re either in 5th grade or you’ve been dating for, you know, a while. These two only met for the very first time a week before their date — and for only a couple hours.
We’d have no problem if Des appeared to be falling in love later on during the season. But these are FIRST DATES. You can totally be smitten with a guy on a first date, but you probably shouldn’t be planning the rest of your life together quite yet. Just a thought.
What do you think: Is Des moving too fast, or does this acceleration simply come with the territory when you're on a show like The Bachelorette? Head below and sound off.
