Guilty Pleasures

There’s one thing everyone can agree on and that is we all have a guilty pleasure or two. Myself, I have several. And one is watching reality TV, I absolutely love the show 90 Day Fiancé and the whole franchise. Reason being, I’m just so mesmerized at how someone could meet a stranger and fall for them and get married within ninety days! I just can’t wrap my mind around that whole concept. But apparently there are people so desperate for love that they would do something like that.

Personally, I could not and would not. Reason being is how can you possibly trust a man or woman whose face you’ve seen on a computer screen and trust them with your most precious commodity, your heart. These folks are willing to spend their hard-earned money to fly to places like Kenya, India and possibly to the end of the earth all in the name of love.

There’s this one couple on this seasons show, Jenny and Summit, who because of age difference, he’s 36 and she’s 60 his family is against the union number one and so’s hers. They believe she’s being naïve trusting this guy, selling all her possessions and moving to India in hopes that he will marry her, but I gotta tell you folks I don’t see that ever happening. The universe as they say, are not in their favor, not on any level.

Which begs the question, why would anyone in their right mind do this when they know deep down in their heart of hearts that nothing is going to work they way they believe it will. I find myself yelling at the TV screen, ‘Are you insane? He’s never going to marry you! Give up and run while you still can!’ But honestly, I think some people are glutton for punishment and won’t get it not even it the world crashes down around them. Are they really that love starved and rapacious that they can’t see the forest for the trees? IJS That’s it for now, until next time. Where love resides-Taisha
