The newest season of The Bachelorette is in full swing with last season's runner-up, JoJo. After watching the past few episodes, one can't help but identify with JoJo in one way or another. Here's just a few examples of how.
"I want somebody to love me the way that I love them." – JoJo
Isn't this all of us? Aren't we all searching for this? We feel you JoJo, we feel you.
"I was getting my heart broken and I still didn't want to see him cry." – JoJo
The love that JoJo felt for Ben last season was beautiful and pure – so pure that she didn't want to see him hurt regardless of what she was feeling. Our hearts all ached for her at that moment because we could relate to her and how pure that feeling was.
"I cannot wait to find the person that I'm supposed to spend the rest of my life with. And be done. And be happy." – JoJo
It's not the goal for all, but for many the goal of dating is to find love and settle down. We all want that forever best friend, and we get tired and frustrated when the search is not fruitful. We get it, we look forward to being done and happy too.
“…you need someone who supports you, JoJo.” – JoJo's brother(s)
We all have a protect person, or people, in our lives that definitely has a say in our relationships. They need to approve of the relationship, because we trust their judgment as much as our own, if not more. They also genuinely know what is best for us and will not let us settle for any less.
“Are you … allowed to say that?” – JoJo
JoJo says what we're all thinking – was Ben allowed to tell her that he loved her? We were all as surprised as she was. Rather than being swept up in the romance too quickly, she called him out just like we would have a moment of hesitation and doubt. She is the realest it comes.
"Ben already tasted my taco — and he loved it." – JoJo
She's hilarious. If you have a competition making tacos with a bunch of women on a group date, someone is bound to make a taco joke. JoJo was the one to make that joke, and we loved her so much for it.
“His butt, his butt…I gotta start doing squats." – JoJo
JoJo had no problem admitting that she was enjoying the eye candy just like the rest of America. She doesn't hold back or try to sugar coat – if someone's butt is hot, then someone's butt is hot! Keep telling it how it is, JoJo, we love you uncensored.
"I'm so ready for love. I hope that on that final day, there's someone that I love more than anyone, down on one knee proposing to me … Bring on the men!" – JoJo
This is the dream of so many girls, and this is why The Bachelorette does so well year after year. She isn't there to just play the game and stay in the limelight – she really truly wants love. Her intentions are on finding love, and we love her so much for that.
From her humor to her realistic comments to her love for love, we are all JoJo. Now, take a sip of wine and enjoy the rest of the season!
