Online dating on bravo
That may be because bachelors tend to be depicted far more positively and glamorously than their female counterparts who are relegated to stereotypes of shrill spinsters and old maids.
But it is also the stigma of online dating that has faded tremendously.
Alex is the bad guy, if we’re defining “bad” on a scale of what women would bring homes to their moms (which Bravo seems to presume we are).
He has the sketchiest and vaguest professional pursuits; he’s a car salesman who dabbles in his father’s bail bond business.
Marcus even walks out of another date with a girl named Mindy while she finishes her meal. The poor foot soldier of love, having survived two nightmare dates, manages to strike gold with a woman with a great bikini shot named Chloe.
Bravo, though, somehow tries to cast her as a slutty slob for a) enjoying food and b) mentioning she is on her period (again, scandalous! The episode closes with the two of them kissing and eating ice cream on the couch after Marcus tells her his most recent date went so badly.
These men don’t seem as desperate or even peculiar as the women of Hooking Up.When she offers to reveal her real age because he’s been pestering her about it all night, he tells her to hold off and save something for the next date.
