Shock!  Bachelor Bad 2 contestants Jackie Gordon and Ames Brown have already parted ways, according to People.  On Monday’s episode, Brown romantically chose love over money (a chance at winning $250,000) and left the competition to be with Jackie when she was eliminated.  However, when reporters caught up with the duo, it has come to light that they onlylasted a few weeks after the elimination.  Brown told reporters, “Um, well, we had a great time on the show and chose love over money in the competition.  We are not still dating, but we enjoyed every moment we had together.  After a little while, we split up.  Nothing too exotic about it.  We just maybe weren’t the ideal match.”

What are some ways to tell early on that a relationship will last?

Cupid’s Advice:

There are always flags that will tell you whether your relationship will last or not.  Here are just a few ways to spot out a lasting relationship:

1. He brings you home to Mom: When a man brings you home to meet his mother, it’s clear that he is serious about having a long-term relationship with you.

2. He brings you to a work function: Bringing you to a work engagement means that he thinks highly of you.  He respects you and knows you will impress his co-workers.  He wants to show you off.

3. He makes plans in advance: If it’s only Labor Day and you’ve already booked a trip in January together, he has the intentions of being with your for more than just the time-being.
