Sean Lowe has a harsh message for the newly-engaged Andi Dorfman: Josh Murray “is not your soul mate.”
Lowe, who is now married to his “winner” Catherine Giudici, writes, “What Andi and Josh don’t know is that they are just now embarking on the hard part.”
“Falling in love while globetrotting the world was the easy part. Learning how to love someone you’ve spent a collective 20 hours with is the really hard part,” he says.
“But mainly, I’d tell them not to elevate the other to the level of ‘soul mate,” he continues. “It sets everyone up for unrealistic expectations and emphasizes the romance over the hard work of building a relationship.”
“I wonder what the researchers who conducted the ‘soul mate’ versus ‘partners on a journey’ study would do with ‘The Bachelor?…hope this time without the lights and cameras will bring them ever closer to the time when the minister pronounces them — not ‘soul mates’ – but ‘husband’ and ‘wife.’
