{ RICK & SARA }


Before I get to my date I need to put a serious plug in for an awesome date idea. Everyone seriously needs to go experience this even if its not on a date. I wanted to go have Michael Jackson dance lessons. I specifically wanted to learn his freestyle moves and not just his dance routines. Phillip Dang did an awesome job of helping us get the technique so that we were able to freestyle some MJ moves. I could not have been more satisfied. I’ve learned to do other dance styles before but never had this much fun. Even when it was tough it was still so much fun. Seriously, just go do it Wednesday nights at 8 o’clock in Torrance. Best 15 bucks you’ll ever spend.

One of the great things about Sara was that she not only rolled with the date, but she was excited about it. I have planned dates before where girls are ambivalent to the idea. It makes things so much better when both people are eager to do the activity. That way if nothing else the date itself makes for good conversation. Luckily with Sara we had so much more even to talk about.

Sara and I started pretty much on the same level of learning the MJ moves. It wasn’t long before she surpassed me. Either way we had a blast trying to get the moves and learn the steps. There was this small routine we tried to do at the end of the session and I had a hard time even 4 moves into it. She pretty much picked up the whole thing. Quite impressive. The time flew by and we both decided that we needed to come back as well as the camera crew too. It’s just an addicting atmosphere.

Afterwards we headed on over to get some eats. We both were fatigued from burning some serious calories. We headed on over to Islands where we talked about a trip Sara had between our two dates to South Africa. Sara always has a cool story to tell. While she was there she got to pick up and play with a baby lion. We also conversed about things that I had learned from being The Mormon Bachelor. That eventually led to everyone’s favorite conversation topic: Dating.

I think Sara is an amazing person. The best thing about my relationship with Sara is that there has never been a dull moment. Why? because she has an electrifying personality. She is positive about everything and can be energized about seemingly insignificant things. If we end up together I don’t think she would ever think much is lame or that my ideas are boring. I like that a lot. Hmmm… Life with Sara?

A great date but I see Jane as the one Rick seemed most connected with. Too bad for the long distance. He seemed to have lots of fun with Melanie and Beana too. Can't wait to see his last date! This is too hard....I loved all the women and it will be a tough choice for Rick. I believe that he already knows or has an inkling like Aubrey did. Good luck Rick!!

Well we can't see it in Europe again. Poo! Maybe you could make a version available without the music or even the sound each time. Or maybe post a copy of the video on vimeo as well? Think about it. We have been sad to miss three videos already. :-( But we love the series. Keep it up.

For the love of Pete will someone PLEASE tell me what this girl does for a living? Is it just me or does it sound like it has to be something awesome?

For the Staffers and makers for this show....It would be nice that the videos have Subtitles. There are tons of Deaf people that loves this kind of stuff, but unable to watch. :(
