Desiree Hartsock was blindsided when her frontrunner, Brooks Forester, decided to bow out of the competition leaving her with the last two contestants, Drew Kenney and Chris Siegfriend. Rather than abandon her search for love, Hartsock decided to give each of the remaining bachelors a rose and a chance at her love.

What are some ways to choose between two potential partners?

Cupid’s Advice:

Not everybody’s love story is straight out of a Nicholas Sparks novel. Sometimes you may be forced to choose between two love interests and the decision will be one of the hardest of your life. Cupid has some advice about how to deal:

1. Ask what you want out of life: Take time to really think about what you find most important and consider which partner can help you attain that. Most of the times you’ll want to achieve these things yourself. If that’s the case then consider who is most likely to give you an emotional boost when you’re feeling down.

2. Long-term happiness: In the end you have to put your long-term happiness above all else. Think of whom you can see yourself growing old with and stick with them. You live your life for you, not for anyone else.

3. Think of what draws you to each partner: The human mind can do this really neat thing where it builds people up on its own accord. This means that part of the guy you’re falling fall can be partially in your head. Think about each guy separately and what you love about them. This should include the good, the bad, the ugly, and the pretty.
