{ Second Date: ASHLEY & AARON }



A BIG thanks is in order to Jason Cooley at Freedom Boardshop for coming out on the lake with Ashley and Aaron to throw down some sick tricks and give really good tips and advice. Not to mention the t-shirt that is now Ashley's favorite t-shirt ever. Shop Freedom Boardshop for awesome boards and apparel. 


When I got the call from Ashley for a second date I was pretty relieved that she did. I mean I had made a pretty confident prediction that I would get a asked for one... period. Needless to say I was excited to drive out to Arizona (this time with a fully functional air conditioned car).

When I walked up to the door fro the second date with Ashley I was pretty excited. I didn't know what to expect, I just knew we were gonna have a fun time. She greeted me with a kind smile and great hug. She had told me to dress for something in the water but I had no idea what we were going to do. We started to drive to a board shop, and in my mind a board shop was for skateboarding. Little did I know she was taking me wake boarding! I never grew up really close to a lake and I rarely ever went out on a boat so I was totally floored by the idea of it, not to mention that we got to see up close a two time national champion wake boarder throw down some pretty awesome tricks. When it came our time to get in the water i had a blast, i even learned how to wake surf so that was pretty cool as well.

Ashley looked so comfortable out on a wake board and when she wake surfed. Every time she was ready to board she would say "hit it" and the song "It takes two" came in to my head and i told the crew they should put it on our video. What i like about Ashley is how she is up for almost anything and likes to try new things and different adventures. Being on a boat with Ashley was really fun. Not to mention she looks really good on a board and while she was on the boat... if you know what i mean ;)

Ashley and I got to see what each other were like in a different environment. Second dates are usually more that way. The ice has been broken and your personality comes out a little more, especially when you are doing something together that you really enjoy. Getting to know her better and talking in the car on the way to the lake was really enjoyable. She is really easy to talk to and likes to joke around a lot. I can see that we have a lot in common in not taking things too seriously and going with the flow, be able to adapt to new situations and being comfortable in those positions.

Dinner after boarding was amazing. Authentic Mexican food is probably 70% of my diet. Living in southern California we have some of the best Mexican food there is but Arizona can boast that as well when Ashley took me to this place with Mexican hot dogs. It was really good and I need to find a place out in California that has those.

The night was filled with good times, good conversation, and good food. Ashley knows how to treat a man right. I like her, but with me it is too early to tell if i will get a potential 3rd date but i would be more than happy to be with Ashley. Living in another state does make things difficult so it would be the hardest hurdle to jump if things were to happen between us.

PS what happens off camera, stays off camera... you know what i mean.

I like Aaron. I like his sweetness, personality, and genuine like for Ashley! Some of the "pretty boys" seem in it for all the wrong reasons, but this guy is in it because he likes Ashley, and I think that's awesome!

Erin said...

man i just love this guy! so glad you brought him back, ash :)you have been amazing through this whole process! xoxox

Kari said...

I definitely think Aaron is in it with good intentions. However, I don't think Ashley is "smitten" with him. He seems like a great catch for somebody though. Very respectful, good guy.

Geoff said...

Aaron is one of the only nice, non-gomer, non-d-bags to be on this whole thing. Pure genuineness!

Oooh, I love the suspense of not telling us what happened off camera. It leaves it to our imaginations and allows them some privacy if something did happen. Seems classier that way.

I agree that he seems to be among the most openly into Ashley for herself and confident enough to lay it out there. Even though I know it has probably already happened, I really hope Aaron is the third date.

Gotta love the ginger and he's just lovely without a shirt. Clearly not the most important thing, but a good perk!

Leah said...

Ok I really like Aaron! I really hope there was some cpr going on after the camera's were off! They had great chemistry! I think it will be a tough choice between Aaron and Jace!

Texas Chick said...

Aaron is great. He is such a sweetheart. I hope they get together.

Emily said...

He is my favorite by far. I hope she picks him.

Hilary said...

Thumbs up!! Great smiles from both....

Aaron is SO AWESOME!!!

Melinda said...

BUT if you buy 7 completos, is only 7 dollars!

Tiffany said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these two together! I definitely feel they they are the best fit for each other. You can feel and see the connection that these two have and I really hope she picks him. The other dudes are totally not into her like Aaron is. She would be an idiot to not pick him!

Even if Aaron doesn't end up with Ashley, he seems like a stud and I'm sure will be a loving husband/father to whomever he ends up with. I don't know him, but I feel like I do because he has such a good, friendly disposition. He doesn't seem like he's hiding or holding anything back. Very refreshing. I thought the date went well and I'm confident Ashley also sees what is apparent. Not sure how many move on after this, but he has my vote as one of the top contenders.

Love Aaron! I felt, like most of the other commenters, that he really seems genuine as a person and he seems to genuinely like her. I would LOVE to see him as the 3rd date! I felt like with Brad she talked a million miles a minute, almost (no offense intended) like she was trying hard to impress him and with Aaron, she seemed more at ease and down to earth - which is how it should be when your dating someone - right? You want to feel comfortable, and she seemed pretty comfortable with Aaron.

What a fun date!!! Loved the interaction on this date. And good job with the ending! LOVED it! Thanks!

Laura and Adam said...

I love how Aaron already knew that Ashley fusses over her hair and he said she looked great because he doesn't want her to worry about it. It's like he already knows things about her that a boyfriend would and it was only their second date. He would be such a great companion for Ashley!

Suzanne said...

Aaron has a beautiful smile! He seems like such a nice guy. Quite a few of these guys seem really nice. It will be interesting to see in the end who Ashley has feelings for.
