  • I thought by now she should be wiser and she goes: I just met my husband! Girl, it’s not that you’re 39, the first encounters are always just hormones! You actually have to meet and talk to them, so you can realize if they are douchbags or not... 🙄

  • I am completely in agreement with Clare’s Choice. Why? 90% of bachelors and bachelorettes who have seen this to the end have ended up unmarried and heartbroken. Maybe if they had cut the ‘journey’ short and invested in ONE person it would have been different. She obviously knew of him before, and she got to know him during filming, and that was enough for her.

  • Its sad for the haterz who are so closed of that u couldnt see or feel the depth of their connection. People are clowning her bcuz it was only 12 days. I met my husband in the most random way. We were wing man and woman for my room mate and his buddy. I new after 8 days. We have been together 19yrs. SO, IT HAPPENS PEOPLE. I wish everybody could experience that in their life time.

  • She’s taking a 50/50 gamble behaving this way it’s very risky and naive but so romantic it could really happen for her especially in this type of setting where hopefully the guys are looking for love and a wife. Shes def throwing herself at Dale it’s gonna be interesting to watch how he handles it. She’s going to be crushed and forever changed if it doesn’t. Rooting for her 💕

  • This made me cry 😭 I know what she’s feeling. My ex and I went to the same high school and he was dating someone the entire time, best friends with my sister, and yet I don’t ever remember meeting him. He moved away after high school to SC and a few years later when I graduated, my family and I just so happened to be moving to the same state! I am a loner, so When we moved there I didn’t have any friends, I didn’t care to make any either. But anyway one day on the 4th of July, my sister thought it would be a great idea to go to Myrtle beach for the 4th, so we could watch the fireworks in the beach. It was about a 3 hour drive and All she talked about was this friend she wanted to meet up with, I had no idea who she was talking about, who “he” was. I was just doing for the fireworks and food lol. Fast forward to the point I’m trying to get to... It’s night time as this point and as we were sitting down finishing up our food, my sister gets a text from her friend that he was there waiting outside. So she’s like “awesome, come on you guys I want you to meet my friend”. We walk outside and she’s giving him and his sister, and her boyfriend all hugs. As soon as I saw him, I experienced that SAME feeling Clare is taking about. Everything went dark around us 💔 I didn’t notice my sister, I didn’t notice his sister or her boyfriend, or the people walking the streets around us. I can’t describe what I felt, but it was an instantaneous attraction that I never felt before. I want to say it was love at first sight. I’m 26, engaged and have 2 beautiful children but I never felt that feeling before, or after him. After we were introduced by my sister and we both said our quick “hello”s, he and his group walked off and said he will meet us at the beach. I immediately told my sister “I like him.... no, like.. I reeeally like him.” She told me he just ended his relationship with the girl he was dating in high school all those years ago and she will talk to him for me. When she talked to him that night, Apparently he liked me too. We ended up dating and I never lost that spark. He was the love of my life 💕 He was my first everything and I believe that caused our relationship to end, but he told me he wanted to give it another shot in a few years once I experienced life a little more. But we both ended up not speaking for 5 years. Both got engaged, with children. About 2 months before he passed away, he reached out to me. But never got to really speak. He passed away this year in May

  • I think she’s being silly. 100%. Being 39 does not mean you automatically know everything about a person you’ve never talked to before. Any sane person knows that. I don’t respect this. I don’t applaud this one bit. It’s not a good example. It’s not girl power... it’s just unwise. It’s silly.

    • @Rey S. no i personally think shes right. No offense to clare but this right here is the very reason her relationships never work out. To marry someone you need to know the ins and outs or else it becomes a toxic relationship she didnt even know his middle name and went THATS MY HUSBAND like not realistic at all... thats called lust to which then turns into infatuation. I believe claire has never truly been in love just infatuated

  • Didnt anyone tell Clare that the right man for you should make you feel calm. Excitement is one thing but this is too much too soon, how can she just 'know' when she doesnt even know him. We've all met someone at first impression who was charming and turned out to be the complete opposite

  • I know this is The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise, and statistically these couples don't work, but love at first sight is real and it can work out. I've been in one of those relationships for two and half years now and it's so great. It's rare, but it can work! So I wish nothing but the best for Clare and Dale.

  • Its called infatuation, love takes years and more experience. It eventually becomes dull thats when you really know what love is, if there is any. And I don't know why I was watching this clip anyway. I guess to teach ya'll there's no such thing as love at first site, attraction yes but love no! Ladies need to stop living in a fantasy world then they'll be less disappointed.

  • If you had real Love at first sight you know it's different from infatuation, lust, etc It's an actual explosion of LOVE. A friend introduced me to this man while I was working, I looked at him and BAM! I was completely and totally HIS. I would have married him that night! It was the craziest feeling! And he was not a model, or dressed smart, he was just a guy in a hat. And I am still under his spell many years later 🥰
