DAVID GOOD’S BACHELOR BLOG: FINALE

Ben brings his sister and mother to meet the 2 girls. I really like both of them. They all seem very close and Ben’s sister is protective but open to what he wants and makes him happy.

It is easy to see why Ben is a good dude just from watching him interact with his family and how close they are.

Lindzi meets the family first. His family really likes Lindzi and even though Lindz was nervous she seemed to get along with them well.

Courtney is next. Ben changes so much when she comes around. It’s clear to me who he is going to pick as soon as Courtney walks into the picture. I am going to write more about this at the end of this blog.

It’s almost cruel to watch Ben go through the motions with poor Lindzi. He has spent the whole time talking about Courtney, defending Courtney and wanting his family to like Courtney. It’s clear that the game is over.

I feel so bad for her right now. She is such a sweet girl and so beautiful and about to get her heart crushed in front of all of America. I wonder if it bothers Ben it all? It has to bother him to go through the motions. I would be terrible at that.

At least she got to ski down a mountain in Switzerland. Seriously that looks like so much fun!

OMG this is unbearable to watch Lindzi pour her heart out to him say “I love you” and him say “that’s good.” She say’s she “is 100% sure of this” and has “never been more sure of something in her life.” Oh man this is gonna hurt her so bad. :/

As soon as Courtney comes into the room Bens voice goes into little puppy dog, kid voice.

The helicopter ride Courtney and Ben take is probably the best one you can take in the whole world. Unbelievable is the only way to describe it.

Let’s just skip to the crushing scene we are about to witness…I don’t know what to say. I guess all I can say is Ben you made a terrible life decision that I am positive as a man you will end up regretting.

We all know he picks Courtney at this point. I will add she looked beautiful in that dress. It is easy to hate on him and her because he did not pick who WE all thought he should. It is his decision and one HE is going to have to live with in the end.

I would like to say something about Courtney though.

At the beginning of the show it was easy to pick on Courtney for her actions and the way she treated the other girls. The things that would come out of her mouth were appalling, rude and just off-putting.

After watching the Woman Tell All however I feel different. Watching her reaction to what the girls were saying to her and how she handled herself up on the stage was upsetting to me. It is clear that something is not right about her. I am not saying this to pick on her but rather to defend her.

Making fun of her or putting her down at this point to me is like picking on a mentally handicap kid or a severely obese person. It is clear she has social disorder that she cannot help. She does not view her words or actions as the rest of us do because in her head what she is doing is not wrong.

I think her apology on stage was fake. She had to force a tear out. I don’t think this is because she is just a cold-hearted woman but because she is not real sure what she is apologizing for. She is only doing this because the people close to her told her she should.

She fits a perfect description of a Sociopath – (a person, as a psychopathic personality, whose behavior is antisocial and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience).

Key words in that definition are “lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience.”

Sociopaths have a lack of remorse, shame or guilt. A deep-seated rage, which is split off and repressed. They do not see others around them as people but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way. They also have a need for stimulation and living on the edge (skinny dipping), a lack of empathy, and are impulsive.

IF THAT DOES NOT DESCRIBE COURTNEY TO A “T,” MY NAME IS NOT DAVID LEVI GOOD.

I know a girl like this. Sucks because this girl is beautiful as well but she really can’t understand the way (normal people) think. The best way I can describe it is she simply cannot put herself in other people’s shoes and look at her actions from the other side. It’s completely dumbfounding and super frustrating to anyone who may know someone like this.

At the end of the day though it is a handicap that needs to be treated the same as other handicaps and not put down or made fun of but understood. Try and make the best of it because she won’t then, now or later understand what you are trying to tell her. Don’t let her beauty be the reason she “has to be normal or upstanding” because it’s a flaw that she is not doing on purpose.

I have to say that without her this show would have been miserable.

Ben is a good guy – I’m sure he’s nice and funny – but we did not get to see a lot of that on this show. This was my least favorite show I have seen to date and without Courtney I would not have even watched or blogged about it. I could not have sat through 2 hours of that.

I am SUPER excited to see Emily though. Guarantee the next show will make up for this one.

Have a great week everyone!
