I can’t believe the hometown dates are already here … WHERE has this season gone!?!?! This is one of my favourite episodes of the season for a two reasons: 1) Family is so important to me and I think family life reflects a lot about someone, and 2) We FINALLY get to know a bit more about each guy (Chase and Luke in particular). Although I love the hometown dates … they were so awkward last night!!!!! Is it just me or this season more awkward than normal?? Don’t get me wrong I LOVEEEE JoJo and love the way she is handling everything … but I giggle and cringe watching it like I’m in highschool!
This is still SO hard for me to write about because I don’t want to step on anyone’s toes or voice my opinions and then watch them backfire in my face. SO, I will try my best to tread lightly and watch from afar with an open mind. I’m still not sure if ANY of these guys are right for JoJo but lets go through their dates last night and try to navigate this together … I can’t wait to hear your thoughts in the comments below …
Starting with Chase …. after getting to know Chase and his family he seems like the only one that doesn’t have a past … and I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing?? Does that mean he’s not ready for marriage?? Or he’s not experienced??? OR … is he the best candidate? I can’t really pin point it with him and I don’t know why … From an outsiders point of view, he seems BORING and I’m not sure if that’s to do with the editing or if there just isn’t a spark between him and JoJo that draws me to love him??? Am I the only one that thinks this?
I always find high school dates extremely awkward … out of all the places you can take someone on a date, why would you go there!?!?! You want the love of your life to see how AWKWARD you looked in high school!?!?!? Maybe it’s just me lol!!! But all in all, I was really unsteady after meeting Jordan’s family. I thought it might reassure me to think that he was still the best for JoJo … but now I’m not so sure. I think he has some deeper things going on that he isn’t showing and I think JoJo is finally starting to see it. It only worries me because I feel like I was in a similar situation when I was on the show and I ended up heart broken once those true colours were shown. I would hate to see the same thing happen to JoJo. I can see her falling for Jordan and I think in her mind he’s still number one … and that worries me!!!! But whether or not he’s “the one” … I’m not so sure!!!! I guess I’ll leave this one up to JoJo to decide!!
I loved Robby’s family and I think that they would be a really fun family to “marry in to.” They are welcoming, fun, but also very protective of their son. Is it just me or is this the first time so many ex-girlfriends are speaking out?? What’s going on????? Did this happen before but social media never covered it? I’m SO confused!!! Are these girls really jealous or are these guys REALLY not here for the right reasons?? I think what Robby said to JoJo was true … I’m sure he did break up with his ex, but it really made me second guess him.
And then there’s Luke .. I almost forgot about him!!! I think he’s a great guy but I’m not SURE if he’s right for JoJo either (lol are you sick of me saying that yet). He comes off as quiet, timid, and shy and that worries me for her … maybe he’s not ready for this?? Or it could just be the editing?? … I have to say though, his family was my favourite!!! I LOVED how he had an outdoor BBQ picnic with his friends and family … that is TOTALLY what I would want to walk into.
