This season’s Bachelorette ended with an unconventional bang!  Ali Fedotowsky chose to not have her second last date with Chris Lambdton, and instead, sent him home early on Monday’s finale.  It turns out that Roberto Martinez had already won Fedotowsky’s heart, E! Online reported Monday, despite rumors that she hadn’t chosen anyone, as Ryan Seacrest predicted in his podcast earlier that day.  Other unexpected surprises of this season included Frank Neuschaefer’s early departure to return to his ex on the July 19 episode.  Cupid wishes reality TV’s newest couple luck!

How do you know if the one you love is Mr. or Mrs. Right?

Cupid’s Advice:

Reality TV sometimes gets a bad rap for being predictable, or staged.  However, this season’s Bachelorette got to the heart of everyone’s true feelings, whether it was Frank leaving the show early, or Ali already knowing who the right man for her was.  Cupid wants to help, and has some ways to help you decide if you’ve found the perfect mate:

1. It’s all about honesty: Infatuation can disguise itself as love by providing the surface feelings of the real deal.  In order to be sure, dig into your heart and see how far down your lover is before making a lasting commitment.

2. Let’s talk about love: In order to determine true love, don’t just trust your gut.  Talk it out together, and make sure you’re both on the same page.

3. Step back: If you need to know if your feelings are what they seem, take a solo trip away from your partner for a week or two, and avoid or limit contact as much as possible.  If true feelings are there, your love will remain when you return.
