    Quick summary - none of the couples are together. Also, all these people are batshit crazy.
  • Jan 19, 2019
    This show was mixed for me. It was absolutely riveting, but some of the couples drove me insane. I understand that they needed to create drama for it to be interesting, possibly, but what they should have done, at the bare minimum, was to have each couple see a therapist. After watching this, there was only one couple, maybe two, that I believe even SHOULD be together. The meathead Erik is controlling, narcissistic, and was emotionally abusive in the past. Lauren and Erik are BEYOND awkward with each other, and it sounds like they never really had a real relationship to begin with. He called her a “Sunday Night Thing,” even in present time, and bragged about having her available when he dumped her once a year. He may be buff, but he is an ugly jerk and doesn’t deserve her at all. He just realized he couldn’t find a woman as beautiful as her who would put up with his crap, and wanted her back. It wasn’t about her at all. And who dates for SIX YEARS and is only intimate 6 times? (She insinuated it was him that didn’t want intimacy, but now that they’re dating he keeps pushing the issue). For Cam and Kate, they’re adorable, but seriously need a therapist to work past the cheating or it’ll never work. She was like 21 and drunk, and it’s not an excuse but it’s hard to just be with one person your whole life. I feel like he can either accept that she was young and stupid, and it has nothing to do with him, or not. But the dragging it on is ridiculous. Oh god, and Meg and Jeremy. This massive wanker. He says hurtful things, and then blames her for getting upset or overwhelmed, and then shuts her out completely, but says it’s her that won’t resolve things. They need therapy SO bad! He can’t see that it’s his jealousy and insecurity, his inability to believe she could ever have actual feelings for him (because she’s obviously smarter, prettier, and more successful), so he just sabotages every opportunity they have, and blames it all on her. If they don’t get therapy, it’ll never work. He needs to realize it’s his insecurity that drives her away. He still blames her for moving on with her life when he LEFT HER, and wouldn’t say he loved her. Like she was just supposed to sit there and wait for him to get around to it. I’m so sick of guys batting above their average, and then feeling like they need to tear the woman down to be good enough for them. She loves you, accept it, and stop being so ridiculously insecure!!! It’s the ENTIRE problem in their relationship!! But I’m living for Diane and Peter. She’s bossy, yes, and needs to tone it down, but he’s the perfect compliment to that. I love their story, and do think they also need therapy, but they’re the only ones who didn’t break up due to massive betrayal or differences, just distance. I believe they could work out. I don’t understand why he would have to move to the states though, she has adult children in college and he has a 14 year old. She could be a realtor in Australia. That part is pretty selfish of her. Anyway, a part of this show should have been weekly couples counseling. Watching people trying to deal with years old hurt and trauma is really hard, and they could have done a lot to make this work better. Instead, they intentionally stirred the pot. I get that it’s a TV show, but people like to watch happy things too! I’m writing this before I watch the last episode, so I have no idea how it’ll turn out. I just wanted to vent about my frustrations about the lack of objective guidance in their relationships, and how much that would have helped. Also about letting a guy like Erik pull someone who was finally happy, back into a manipulative, shallow relationship. She deserves MUCH better! And maybe after this show, she’ll leave that twatermelon and find a guy who treats her like the goddess she is!
