However, knowing what I’d been told a few hours earlier, this picture took on a whole new meaning.
This was the picture that circulated in a private Facebook group and was taken down within 5 minutes because people in that private group didn’t want to hear about any potential spoilers: Sure, the whole “a good friend of mine’s bf” sounds like “I know someone who knows someone who knows someone who saw something etc,” but 1) When you’re told hours earlier Arie had broken his engagement off with Becca and there was going to be filming in Virginia, 2) You’re then seeing pictures of vans being there, and then 3) You’re able to confirm independently that ABC and Arie were indeed in Virginia at Lauren’s parents house, well, I was even more sure that my sources were right.
When you write a dating advice column, one of the inevitable questions that comes up is the idea of inexperience.
This has only happened once before in the history of the show. Not less than 6 hours later, a photo appears in a private Facebook group that ABC’s vans were out in front of Lauren’s mother’s house in Virginia, and the person who posted the picture seemed to know that ABC and Arie were there and were filming.
As I told you last Wednesday, the picture itself isn’t incriminating because all it is is cars in driveway.
The numbers are arbitrary and invented and almost always tend to be pulled from thin air; I’ve had statistics when it comes to sex and relationships.
We tend to make assumptions based around expectations built up by pop-culture and expectations about what makes a “real” man, assuming that everybody (but us) has been riding the sex train since the 5th Grade while we’re still Machokeing our Combusken at 19.
Certainly an interesting thing to be told because why would a lead possibly contact the girl he dumped when he’s engaged to someone else?
