Melissa’s dad, sister and girlfriends are there to meet Chris. Everyone is sitting around and dad tells a sweet story about proposing to her mother on the second date and being happily married for 33 years. Sadly, Melissa’s mom died and she says she never had a chance to introduce any men to her mother. Things are kind of boring in this household, so to liven things up, there is a suggestion that they look at Melissa’s Bat Mitzvah photos. Seriously?
This album is about ten times thicker than my wedding album.
And there’s a little sheet of protecting paper between each precious photo.
No wonder this girl is so picky – she is clearly very cherished at home. I find myself kind of jealous. Anyway, Chris is a great sport and even tells Melissa she was beautiful at the horribly awkward age of 12.
But then again, he clearly is attracted to awkward.
Danielle is in Atlanta and meeting up with Kevin for dinner. She has to face the music and find out if there is any possibility of a reconciliation with him before she can move on with her life. Gone is the cute man who showed up all dapper in New Orleans. Instead, it looks as if Kevin just climbed down from his hunting blind, spritzed a little bear repellent on for deodorant and skidded his pickup in sideways to make it to the restaurant on time.
Danielle, you sure you want this back?
She’s scared but she gets kudos for putting herself on the line.
It is terribly frightening and very hard to put yourself out there like that for a clear rejection. I know, I’ve done it (and it ended badly). I still sometimes burn with the humiliation of misunderstanding the signals I thought were being sent my way. But in the end, I’m really glad I outright asked the guy if he was interested – it kept me from wasting more time, which is what Danielle has been doing since she and Kevin talked during the ex’s episode. Unfortunately, when she asks Kevin if he thinks there is any possibility that they could get back to together, his answer is totally ambivalent. He says on a scale of one to ten, he would rate the possibility of them getting back together at a 5. Danielle says she would do whatever she had to do to make it work.
I love it when a hot piece of ass falls in my lap.
Thank you God!
Poor Danielle says she is more confused from the meeting than she was before. She shouldn’t be. It’s only because she wants his answer to be yes or no and she’s putting her whole life on hold for his answer. Someone slap this girl – girlfriend, if his answer wasn’t an emphatic yes while he swooped you into his arms and hustled you to his twin cab Dodge Ram Pickup, then you need to move on and find a man who is excited about you. Seriously – how is it a girl who is so into the ghetto speak and behavior was ever this into a very dark redneck?
In Boston, Melissa and Chris go ice skating. It’s a great idea for a date because Melissa has never done it before, which means plenty of excuses for holding each other close, despite being a virgin.
But she even manages to make this look awkward.
It’s the end of the evening and Austin has it the best of all the girls. Despina has her own place in Boston in the North End (which I can tell you from my recent vacay is a super cool area).
His evening ends with cuddling and a shared bed.
Whereas Stephanie and John have to settle for a
goodnight kiss and sleeping in separate rooms.
Sadly, when you’re dating the virgin, you aren’t
even allowed to sleep in the same building.
