We all know the odds are against Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici. You can count on one hand the number of Bachelor/Bachelorette couples that actually make it down the aisle. Sad, but true. There are already reports swirling that it's almost over. But all hope is not lost. Sean-Cat can still make if he smartens up and stops making the most common relationship mistake of all time.
According to Us Weekly, Sean is doing very little to keep the spark alive. In fact, he is barely paying any attention at all to Catherine. He's so consumed with Dancing With The Stars, there is little time or energy left over for his fiance.
That's in stark contrast to how things were during the show, of course. Those over-the-top romantic dates created instant sparks. (That and Sean’s amazing 12-pack). But now that the've left reality TV for real life, they need to work hard to keep things interesting. You know, the same goes for just about every relationship. The first few months feel like an endless adventure. It's exciting. It's new. It's euphoric. Then, things slow down and those heart palpitations don't come as fast and furious as they did before. That doesn't mean you aren't interested or not still in love. It just means you have to get a little more creative about keeping things hot.
That's a lesson Sean needs to learn asap if he wants to keep Catherine. She moved from Seattle to L.A. to be with him, but she never sees him. Because of his strict moral code, they are not living together, nor are they having sex. He spends much of his time prepping for DWTS and that leaves her bored and lonely. And that combo is a surefire relationship killer.
Sean won't even commit to a wedding date, report Us Weekly sources. Wedding planning would at least give the poor girl something to do. So it seems to me, Sean isn't really invested in Catherine's happiness or their engagement right now. If he doesn't flip the script soon, no doubt the Bachelor curse will ruin them too.
Do you think Sean is dropping the ball?
