Brad Womack thinks he’s found the real deal with Emily Maynard. Is he right not to rush their relationship?
Everyone operates at a different speed when it comes to feeling comfortable in a new relationship, and The Bachelor‘s Brad Womack happens to crawl forward at a snail-like speed. He thinks he’s falling for contestant Emily Maynard, which is why he’s not rushing their newfound relationship. Should he be less careful and think more with his heart and less with his head?
“Em, I care for you so much and I take things slowly because I care so much about you. … Trust me, it’s not from lack of interest. I care for you more than I should probably say right now,” the two-time Bachelor told the Charlotte-born blond on last night’s episode before telling her their kiss was “more than just a kiss.”
Brad is notorious for being the only Bachelor star in history to reject both of his bachelorettes at the final rose ceremony, which just shows how slowly and seriously he really does take relationships. He doesn’t want to be involved with a woman for the wrong reasons and wants to take his time to make sure his girl of choice is ‘the one’ before he commits.
Although the general consensus used to be that Brad was a total jerk, I’m on board with his policy of taking things slowly. You can’t really know if it’s love unless you really and truly know your respective other, and the only way you’ll fully know who he is is to spend time with him. Sure, you can feel lust, chemistry and desire — but these things do not make a solid relationship.
If you think you’re falling for someone, don’t rush things. Part of the excitement of a new relationship is discovery – so take your time, and enjoy the adventure!
