The Bachelor and The Match

This Season's Bachelor of The Match

My good friend recently made a comparison between our favorite show The Bachelor and the match. Her husband is also in his 4th year and finishing up interviews for residency. So I am stealing her idea (but still giving her the credit) and sharing it with all of you because I love it so much!

So on The Bachelor (if you have lived in a cave and never watched it before) there is one lucky guy who gets to choose the love of his life from a group of women. These women are all drooling over him and trying to impress him so he will pick them. They may have only known him for oh, 3 hours or so, but mark-my-word, they LOVE him! He takes them out on dates, goes to their hometowns, and he eventually chooses one. Only she must choose him back. Of course there is drama and tears and cat-fights and just all-out-ridiculousness! (Which is of course why I love it oh-so-much!) Week by week he narrows it down. He only gives roses to fewer and fewer women each week, until only a handful are left. It’s always so entertaining to hear him say how he is IN LOVE with 3, 4, 5+ women AT. THE. SAME. TIME. Come on, man! For real? Because he just can’t decide who he will ever pick (oh, the horror!) he needs his family’s input. And after hours and hours of deliberation, he has finally chosen her. He now knows who has stolen his heart and who he wants to spend the rest of his life with. And it is to her who he will present the final rose to. Awww, just so darn cute! 😉

So on to the comparison…

My J is the lucky Bachelor. He has his “women” (radiology programs) all vying for his attention. He has been introduced to them, gotten to know them, heard how much they LOVE him, heard about all their best qualities and about all their not-so-good qualities. He has gone to their hometowns and seen them in “their element”.  And now he has professed his love… but who will it be? Will it be one? OF COURSE NOT! Where’s the fun in that?!?!? 😉 Yes, {sigh} my man has said those words, he loves MANY! gulp. So now comes decision time. But who will he choose? What will his family say? Do they have a favorite? Will J end up finding love in the end, or will he go home brokenhearted?

Unfortunately, only time will tell for this season’s results. We are going to have to wait until the finale to find out who it is. There are no sneak peaks this season. No previews.  No news will be leaked out on the internet for us to google. And so we must wait. We must wait to see if his “chosen love” will accept the final rose he has presented to her…

Stay tuned. The finale episode will be shown on March 17th. Make sure to not miss the follow-up episode of “after the final rose”! 😉

    I adore this. How would you feel if I used this in our SAA (support group for spouses) newsletter this month as a guest author? Email me and let me know if you’d be okay with this!
