{ Second Date: ASHLEY & ERIK }


A HUGE thanks to Mark at SkyDive Phoenix for sponsoring Ashley and Erik's second date.  If you want some free falling adventure please visit them at www.skydivephoenix.com


In Erik's Words:

After my first date with Ashley I wasn't really sure how I was feeling about her even though I had a ton of fun and really respected this girl. So when I got her call asking me for a second date I was up for it because I knew we would have fun but I wasn't necessarily feeling it. The height thing bothered me a bit too but I think Ashley is really cute and that wasn't necessarily a deal breaker. So I decided to give it a shot and come back out to AZ for Round 2.

Skydiving was AMAZING! I was really impressed that this girl had thought of a date that not only fit my personality but helped us get to know each other even better by taking some risks. I am kind of an adrenaline junkie so I had a blast.

After the date I realized how comfortable I felt around Ashley. She is a girl that I really admire and have a lot of fun with, although I didn't feel enough to see things working out in the end. I hope that we can continue to build a strong friendship and that she finds the man of her dreams through The Mormon Bachelorette. I was hopeful I would find love through this journey with Ashley but I don't think it was meant to be.

Super fun date but too bad he's not into her! It seemed like a lot of the guys were though so I'm hoping the rest of the 2nd dates will go well! ;)

Great date, sparks of good chemistry ... she's so close to finding a good one. I think the height issue would totally be a problem for both of them. But, aren't they just so cute together?

What a fun date! Erik seems like a nice guy, but it didn't seem like they were the best fit for each other. They were pretty affectionate with each other though towards the later parts of the date- that was cute to see.

Dang! I thought these two were so cute together. I wonder why he is not into her.......maybe the height thing? I like to see how affectionate they were with eachother, too.....hopefully, it just keeps getting better!!

Well at least he's honest. Power unto you, Sir Erik!

Oh! How sad! I was so excited when I saw the video with the hand holding, couch cuddling, etc... (height difference stood out to me more this time), but they totally seemed good with each other. Then I read Erik's comments down below. Sorry Ashley! At least he was honest and didn't lead you on to choose him in the end.

Really what does height have to do with anything, I;m dating a women that is 2 inches taller then me things are going great. I also dated a girl 5 inches taller then me and we didn't stop dating because of the height. Get over the superficial things I'm not saying physical attraction isn't important but it's not the most important thing. To me someone that makes me laugh, makes me happy and makes me want to be a better person makes a women a lot sexier then just her looks alone. So go after the things that matters not just looks.....

Fun date - question the lyrics of the song during skydiving. Not familiar with it but why choose a song with clearly negative tones? And does it use the "b" word? If not, it sure sounds like it. Not a good choice for a lds based show. Most of the music has been great. A few questionable songs slip in here and there - this one was just plain bad.
