Ben confesses that he has ‘real feelings’ for Courtney. But does Courtney actually have feelings for Ben or is he heading for heartache?
Bachelor Ben Flajnik is completely blinded by Courtney Robertson‘s lies. He seems to believe that she was being completely sincere with him during the Feb. 20 episode when she told him that she was falling in love. In his People.com blog, Ben gushes about how good it made him feel to hear Courtney say, “I love you.”
During Courtney’s hometown date, she surprised Ben with an intoxicating confession of words that he had been dying to hear. She set up a mock wedding and “poured” her heart out to him. “Little did I know how much this elaborate setting would allow her to pour her heart out,” Ben writes. “Hearing Courtney tell me she loves me made it all worth it.”
Ben was anxious to meet her parents because he’s head over heels for Courtney. “I was nervous about how this day was going to go because I had real feelings for this woman,” he admits. “I also had concerns about her based on what the other women were saying, but seeing her away from the other girls made me feel like her behavior was circumstantial.”
“Meeting Courtney’s family was a very welcoming experience,” Ben continues. “It felt very familiar to me because I lived in Arizona for some time so it almost felt like home. Her parents’ Saltillo-tiled floor reminded me of my parents’ house, and it was a good, nostalgic feeling. Rick was a true gentleman, and I appreciated all the advice he gave me.”
Courtney then planned a date that made Ben feel like she was being totally real with him. “I picnic a lot back in San Francisco, and I loved that Courtney had planned this for our day,” Ben remembers. “My date with her felt really natural, and I have to give her props because she was really bold to assume that I would play along with a mock wedding.”
“All in all, it was a great hometown date,” Ben says.
