After watching the season premiere of The Bachelorette last night, it seems like Desiree Hartsock is in for a bumpy ride. Don't get me wrong, she definitely has a few good guys in there, but at this point, it looks like she's got a long road ahead of her before she weeds out the bad ones.
But lucky for Desiree, former Bachelorette Emily Maynard offered up some pretty good advice on getting through this "journey" in one piece. Hey Des, listen up!
Really take your time and don't get caught up in the romantic idea of it. I think anybody who goes on the show has to be a hopeless romantic and I think as girls, it gets us in trouble sometimes. But just have fun with it.
I'm guessing it's really easy to get caught up in the romance. I mean, the whole show is set up so you fall in love within days. But Desiree is definitely not allowing herself to get swept away by the wrong guy. I mean, she did manage to eliminate "fantasy suite guy" before the rose ceremony even started. Girlfriend means business! And although she does come off like a hopeless romantic (she's already dropping the "husband" bomb) -- it seems like Des is going to have a TON of fun with these guys.
Let's just hope the upcoming episodes show Des being as strong as she was the first night.
What do you think of Emily's advice for Desiree? Do you think she'll take it?
