Episode 7 of The Bachelorette was one big lovefest, with pretty much every remaining guy dropping the “I’m falling for you” bomb on Andi Dorfman. Poor girl, said no one. But one profession of feelsies stood out to both viewers and Andi alike: Josh Murray’s. The guy — who seems more comfortable talking sports than the state of his heart — dug deep to give the Georgia Peach the pillow talk she needed to take him to Hometown Dates.

So how did Andi react to the softer side of Josh during that 1-on-1 in Ghent? We’re pretty sure her heart giggled in glee and then flew on gossamer wings to the nearest bridal boutique. “The best part of the date was definitely when Josh told me he was falling in love,” she writes in her People blog. “I was completely shocked!”

We were a little shocked too, given that Josh had previously set the stakes for the L-word pretty high — a fact not lost on Andi. “I remembered that Josh promised that the next person he says he's falling in love with will be his wife. So for Josh to put himself out there like that, and to say he's falling in love, it was so huge,” she wrote, while probably  imagining what her future baby with Josh might look like.   

Josh has been a little less verbal than Andi’s other frontrunners, choosing mouth-to-mouth as his main mode of communication. So the feelings bomb was a major coup for Andi, and it secured Josh’s spot in Episode 8. “I felt like Josh and I took a huge step forward that week and I was excited to meet his family,” she wrote, though we’re pretty sure Josh was a shoo-in for Hometown Dates whether he fessed up to his feelings or not.
