Unsurprisingly, I am watching Season 3 of Married at First Sight. It’s addicting, I’m afraid, and I definitely want to see the couples succeed!
This season I was particularly struck by the pair of Ashley and David. David is super-outgoing and wants to talk about everything (and-apparently-has a timeline for physical affection!) while Ashley is the more reticent and introverted partner. It’s a pair that probably could work really well if they both tweaked how they look at each other’s communication styles.
For better or worse I am addicted to the A & E show ‘Married at First Sight.’ Last season turned out so well with an incredible number of lessons to be learned about relationships. So, I also had high hopes for Season 2.
Okay, okay! I admit that I watched a lot more of Married at First Sight than I had originally intended. And by “a lot more” I mean every episode this season. After all my misgivings about manufactured drama, I suddenly realized that there was a lot to learn about relationships from this show. Yes, I’m as surprised as you are!
A male friend told me that I appeared too “self sufficient” to “need” a man. Which (in his opinion) is why I am still single. He obviously thought he was being helpful but that comment really rubbed me the wrong way.

This week I saw an ad for the new show Married at First Sight and decided I was curious enough to actually watch an episode. I ended up watching three. (For research purposes!)
