More than one person has looked at me funny when I express my addiction to watching the Bachelor. I watch VERY little TV (because, let’s face it, most of it is trash) but this romance junkie can’t resist the pull of the “romantic” show.
I thought I’d share some reasons/justifications (depending on how you look at it)….
lady on Monday—even if I loved the stuff, I would be steering clear
after seeing that!
Bachelorette. Some of those guys are WEIRD! (aka man-card guy and
foot-fetish dude from a few years back…)
I was going to add “It’s a chance to pray for those on the show–God loves them too!” and while that is true and we SHOULD pray for those people (as they are real people at the end of the day) I think that would be called a “Jesus-Juke” according to a certain pastor, so I refrained. Unless you count me posting it just now anyway…. Hmmm…. 🙂
SERIOUS NOTE: I watch the Bachelor for fun. In zero way do I “lust” over the men on there—honestly very few of them are my type of guys anyway, and I’m super happy with the man God blessed me with! (and even if I weren’t—still wouldn’t make it okay! I view it similar to how I view my fiction–it’s a fun storyline, although with a touch of reality:-)
So what about you? Are you a Bachelor watcher? Who are you rooting for this year? Any flimsy tongue-in-cheek excuses for your bachelor-addiction?
Or are you now in deep prayer for my TV viewing habits?? *grin*
In our small group, we are reading Sacred Marriage. Watching The Bachelor allows me to understand the book better because everything that happens and is said on show is the opposite of what the books says. (Yep, that's my reasoning).
