“Kissing in the rain is very very romantic” – Brad
“Brad and Brit are apparently going to be setting sail on the sea of love, but I think there is a good chance that their ship will go down” – Michelle
“Truely, you’re gonna use the yacht for Brit? Seems like a waste of a one on one if you ask me” – Michelle
“Brit and Brad…although it sounds really cute…not only do I not see them getting married, I don’t even if I even see them friending each other on facebook.” – Michelle
“I need to get over my fears and just do it for the relationship.” – Brit…about cliff jumping
“Life would be a lot better without Michelle around” – Chantal O
“When Brit and I were sitting on the little bay, we were asking all the right questions, we were having a great conversation, no doubt about it…but I was looking around we’re in the most romantic setting in the entire world and I don’t have that urge to just grab her and kiss her.” – Brad
“I feel like a fat lard.” – Chantal O
“I mean I am in love with this guy and I’m having to watch him roll in the sand and have another girl kissing on him. It’s brutual.” – Chantal O
“today’s group date is not going well. not nearly as i had planned and i’m to blame for that. michelle got a little aggressive but i also got caught up in it. there are two other women on this date. i could see the hurt all over their faces. i think kissing michelle went a little bit too far. i put myself in hot water here. the day’s not even half way over. I don’t know what to expect at the pool party. I want to calm every one down. I think the damage is done. Something is telling me that the day is going to get worse and not better. – Brad
“I just feel like if you can’t choose me over one out of three girls, then just send me home. It’s not like its who put themselves out their the most. It’s who do you want to go home and meet their family.” –
“I really wanted to talk to him. If I go home tonight I’m gonna be f-ing pissed.” – Michelle
“I’m scared out of my mind….there’s just so much confusion and turmoil within myself right now. I’m scared to death to face Brad tonight…I feel like I’m going home.” – Chantal O
“Can I have your hand or not a chance?” – Brad
“Ummm probably not.” – Michelle
“Saying goodbye to Michelle is extremely bittersweet for me. I have an intense physical attraction to her, but that would have worn off. And then her intensity and the way we kept butting heads a little bit, that would have become a volatile relationship very quickly. So I was very confident in telling Michelle goodbye.” – Brad
XVII (I do not love you…)
I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way
than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
– Pablo Neruda
