Lasting love on “The Bachelor”? Not so sure

by singlemomseeking on January 5, 2009

When I first heard that single dad Jason Mesnick was going to be “The Bachelor,” I was skeptical.

After his appearance on “The Bachelorette,” hundreds of women had tried to contact Jason. ABC got so flooded with requests that the network gave him a personal email account.

Many of these women wanted to date him, and many were begging him to go back on the show — as “The Bachelor.” (Don’t get me started about whether he’s looking for love — or fame.)

But my curiosity is getting the best of me.

I’ll be watching the “The Bachelor” premiere tonight (Monday) on ABC with a two-hour special starting at 8 p.m.

How could I miss it? For the first time ever, “The Bachelor” is a single dad.

Mesnick has left his son back home — with his ex-wife and parents — to move into a Los Angeles bachelor pad. He will meet 25 suitors, including four single mothers.

Will you be watching the show, too?


When my kid was a preschooler — like Jason’s Mesnick’s three-year-old son, Ty – I was idealistic and hopeful, too. (Although given the chance, I would not have left my kid for weeks in order to move into a bachelorette pad in L.A.)

I wonder how I’ll feel as I watch the show. At the moment, I’m skeptical about finding The One. Maybe that’s what online dating does to us.

Is it really so hard to find love nowadays? Really now.

Why is it so challenging to connect to another human being — and have a healthy, loving, lasting relationship?

Are we really that complicated?

Or, that picky?
