    S.09 E.05: Paradise Lost?

    I was confused by this pairing. I do not believe Amber's extensive knowledge of sports, teams, and players will make Matt lust after her. I think his request of a woman who "makes athletics a priority in her life" is code for a woman who takes care of her body, not necessarily a woman who watches football. I dated a basketball player once and I had zero clue of how the game worked, and it posed ZERO problem, in fact he thought it was cute how clueless I was in the game. Even though Matt would not be my type because of his height, (to me) it looks like he would have wanted a woman...less tomboyish.... than Amber.

    Doug is the kind of guy some women settle down with after they are done with their wild dating years. He is comfortable, very beta, lets her make all the decisions and be in charge.

    Jon, in my opinion, was so opposite of BDE I thought it was blatantly obvious. His desperation for Molly was kind of sad. He whined about her not wanting sex with him despite having a slutty past in college. He felt somehow threatened by Ryan the other douche. He made stupid comments about Ryans fiances ring size. Any guy with BDE would have given Molly the boot (or just ignored her) long before her verbal abuse surfaced. Quitting his job for a dating show takes the cake. The only guy on this show with BDE IMO was the tall guy from Texas who got matched with crazy Amber. And possibly the douche from Staten Island from the 2md season of this show.
  4. Oh wow. I understand different parts of the world have different concepts of space than we are (fortunate to) have in the US, but sharing a bedroom with your husband, kids, AND parents or in laws doesn't sound like its easy to get some alone time to make more kids. And TBH, I am very surprised that Jihoon went for Deaven. I would have thought that girls with sleeves of tattoos/ alternative culture are frowned upon in Korea, and Jihoon seems like a decent guy (he looks clean cut).
  5. Deavan has the potential to be drop dead gorgeous. However, (this is my opinion only!) the arm sleeve tattoo takes away from that "cute girl next door" look that limits her from meeting a quality guy in the US, she has mentioned that she has not had luck dating here. She could also use a lot less makeup and hair dye. Im curious about Korean culture, like if bedsharing with kids is the norm, how many years is it done ? I did both with my kids - bedsharing off and on and sleeping separately - and I think 99% of parents bedshare because its the ONLY way they will get any sleep and sleep training a reluctant child to sleep alone can mean at least several sleepless nights full of screaming in tears.

    S09.E02: Something Borrowed, Something New

    Idk, personally I prefer the type of makeup that enhances your own look rather than make you look totally different. I never do red lips, bright eyeshadow , stiff updos, etc and have always preferred the brides who kept the soft subtle look. I didnt watch the ep so I dont know how Iris' bridal look was (besides the starched pure white dress.) Especially for marrying a stranger, I wouldnt want him to meet me looking like someone different or like I have a mask on, I would want hin tonsee me and not focus on the makeup.

    Who talks about their sexual history/non-history with their MIL ??! She seems awfully proud of her virgin card and seems love waving that flag tall and proud. Call me crazy, but I never discussed those things IRL with people I just met. I also would never marry someone I just met either.

    S09.E02: Something Borrowed, Something New

    I was a virgin until my wedding at 25 that happened within this decade. Very traditional background that openly upheld double standards and prized young womens virginity. Guys I dated were intrigued but all except 1 refused to date me without sex. My now husband waited almost 2 years for me. Looking back, I wish I had NOT waited for several reasons. In todays world, women basically have to walk a slippery slope - we are still slut shamed (by both genders) for any premarital sexual activity, but few guys will wait around faithfully for a woman who wants to wait till marriage.

    S01.E04: Big Expectations

    Their story is such a stereotypical "Tunisian love rat bezness" whatever you call it that its almost unreal. Lonely older blonde overweight woman talks to young, handsome Tunisian who wants marriage. I bet his parents are rooting for it too. And from what I know many Indian people in India speak English and intermix English (but a British sounding version) into conversations daily. I believe they call it Hinglish. Im not sure where in India Sumit lives, but there are so many languages in India that he may very well speak something else (not Hindi) but some regional dialect.
  10. Thats all interesting. I had an Indian roommate in college who hung out with mostly an Indian crowd, I had the feeling her parents were super traditional but she was actually quite modern (when they werent around at least.) I got the impression that Indian culture emphasizes "overachievement" as I have seen many Indian women get educations (MBAs, Ph.Ds, MD, Pharm D.), before age 30, get married, pop out a few kids, cook and clean like a boss ...etc.

    S09.E01: Nice To Marry You

    The only couple that I 100% believe will not last 6 weeks is Elizabeth and Mr Picky. Reasons being, she seems to lack any kind of class and I don't think either will find the other attractive. But you never know. The whole "Amber should not have been matched with Matt because family is important to her and he is distant from his parents" is BS. 80% of the participants claim that they are super family oriented. Its just something you say. And also - she needs to calm down before she scares him away.

    Like my dad says about tall vs short women ... "They're all the same in bed." But thankfully he is not like Red heads dad.

    She keeps bringing up her virginity loud and clear, as if its like a selling point. I think she would be more successful in relationships if she didn't make such a huge deal out of it. Part of me thinks she is a paid actor.

    S09.E01: Nice To Marry You

    Im tall and I would not want a husband who is 6'9". It might be cute for a day but I wouldnt want to be married to a Redwood tree. However, I have heard of giant basketball players preferring to marry short women so that their kids would hopefully grow to be somewhere in the middle.

    S09.E01: Nice To Marry You

    I am starting to believe that Red Head and Iris the Virgin are paid actors - they are both WAY over the top to be taken seriously. Mr Picky will NOT find Red Head attractive- she's not classy, looks 45, no taste in clothing. And she likes "gorgeous" men, she will not like the whole "I shave my head because of premature balding" shtick hes got going on.
