This entire process has been a great experience so far but it has most definitely taken a toll on me physically and emotionally.  I came to Erin's house today excited to see the next girl on this love journey I am on, so when I opened the door to find Kent there I was shocked and confused.  He told me that my date was held up in Utah which basically means I got stood up.  I know that the switch of me becoming the Mormon Bachelor not only affected me but also the girls involved and everyone has had someone stand them up on a date, so I chalked it up to the reality of dating.  But I was also relieved that Kent was there to lessen the blow and take me on a man date.  It was a nice break from the crazy dating process, and I really got to unwind and tell him about how I have been feeling this last month.  I’ve been running on empty for a few days and I needed something to fill my tank back up. 
                
The time I spent with Kent was well needed and we were able to catch up on not only his new romance, but my possible 12 new relationships.  We were able to talk again about the reasons he dropped out of the show and how everything was going with he and Carlie, better known as CarlieStylez on YouTube.  He was able to get some information out of me that I hadn’t shared with anyone else about how I have been feeling about the show and some of the feedback people have been giving me over the comments I had made in past dates, specifically my honesty about my attraction to Jessica, which I felt horrible about after it aired.

It is amazing how the intent you have comes across completely the wrong way that you intended and you only realize it after it is too late.  I reached out to Jessica that day and sincerely apologized about hurting her feelings.  What none of you know yet is that a few of the 12 girls I have gone on dates with have not accepted 2nd dates, because they simply weren't into me.  I haven't taken it too personally but I know that women are really tender with their feelings and I should have been much more respectful about that when I talked about Jessica after our date.  The fact is I really enjoyed our date and hoped that we could be friends.  I think that ship has sailed on her end but I really apologize for any harm done.

Kent has been here for me through this whole process and it was good for us to sit down and take some time for ourselves so he could help me realize that it isn't always important what people say to try to get you down - especially in online conversations.  We went to Churros Caliente off of Santa Monica Blvd. and just sat down and enjoyed some of the finest churros anyone makes.  Churros brings me back to my mission in spain where we used eat them all the time so I just felt a lot better after a few stressful days with my best friend, eating my favorite food.

Let's get this straight. A few months ago a bunch of women vied for the opportunity to get a date with Kent Tuttle on TMB. Then Kent went and fell in love the boring old fashion way and quit us and TMB and all the girls. And when he finally takes someone on a date through TMB it's Chris! And what was with that hand clap, chest bump thing, is that the LA version of The Fresh Prince of Belair & Jazz's handshake? (Something fantastic always comes out of watching TMB cause now you got the Sistas thinking about Will Smith and his fine self!) We digress.

PS: Chris we love you boo, but please stop talking about Jessica, baby girl already told you it hurts her feelings...unless this is a lead up to her being next seasons The Mormon Bachelorette...

I appreciate Chris's honesty.

Rick Buck said...

I felt the chemistry. I hope he chooses Kent!

Sharisse said...

Hi Rick! I still think you should have gone for Jane!:) She was my fave for you. :)

This episode seemed to feature more Kent than Chris. Trying to remind us of your first choice?

Lizzy said...

So, if one girl stood him up, isn't there only 11 girls in the running?

Cougs Rock said...

So, they went to a true Spanish restaurant, and we have no footage of Kent and Chris eating tapas? Hijole!

It's good that Chris was able to better explain some things that have previously happened. Yes, I agree with SistasInZion that Jessica should totally be next season's Mormon Bachelorette! (That is if she would want to be of course.)

I feel like I've missed something, did Jessica say something about Christ had said about her? Regardless, I appreciate Chris' honestly and Kent is fine. Enough said.

Haylee said...

*Chris.. fail, sorry about that. I promise I wasn't trying to be sacrilegious or anything. :/

Rachal said...

In the comment section of Jessica's date she posted a link to her blog that consisted of her thoughts and feelins about what happened

Haylee said...

Thank you Rachal!

Rachal said...

You're welcome! :-)

Chris is more excited to go out with Kent than any of the girls.
