Thanks @Joy15! blowkiss

Something I loved about that scene is that in Mike's ITM he says "I've let her know how I feel and it's just tough for her because she's the one who has to make the decisions now." It's the same way he reacted on that 2-1. It's the same way he spoke to Jasmine on that first night. With understanding and empathy for what she must be going through. Always with consideration about how this process was affecting her. Now that's character IMO.

I thought this piece of dialogue was interesting as well. Jasmine: "I kind of was thinking that maybe my feelings had just developed faster than his, and then he comes through the door and says everything I'd wanted him to say."

What's implied in that statement IMO is that Jasmine had also started to fall for Mike. But it seems that without the confirmation that Mike was on the same page, she had already made up her mind about what was going to happen at the RC. I think it was just too late.

Mike's Dad said something else during the HTD. "It's something that you've never experience before, which can only be good. That's what we're all about. Having new experiences." Whatever happens in life, it can always help you grow and learn. If Mike keeps following Pops Ogilvie's advice then I think he'll be on the right track. yes

yeah..Mikey is an epitome of empathy and thoughtfulness hearthumbsup

i wished so hard the Canadian franchise would go the Aussie/NZ route....without a pressure of an engagement. The Stat of the successful couples are also impressive..with most of them still stay together!. This will allow a more natural ,at normal pace relationship to develop on the show, that could bloom into something more powerful and real after show. IMO. I think a 'rational' contestant ala Mikey more fit with this kind of format. (Sasha anyone?...). Oh well..... hmmm

Hello, Ladies!  handwave  Glad to see all of you here on Mikey's fan thread. Enjoying all the insights above and have to agree with everyone's comment about how lovely and warm Mike's family is. When Mikey finally finds THE ONE, that girl would be so loved.

My take on what some people call "last minute declaration of love" from Mike......please don't hate me  Praying  but I think our boy just wasn't ready to say those words. Like the panel at the After Show was saying, their relationsip didn't progress at the speed that the show demanded. And to me that's just fine. You have to live with this person once the show is over so if you're not sure about your feelings why would you rush to say ILY. And I know he went to see Jasmine before the RC to tell her that he was falling for her but even then, it felt a little forced. When he said that it's hard to flat out say the words when Jasmine asked him how he felt about her, I think it was because he wasn't really sure if what he was feeling was truly love. He just needed a little more time  to sort out his feelings. IMO, even while in the Bachelorette bubble, Mike was very much a realist and stayed true to himself and refused to get sucked in and in the end, I feel that's a really good thing, despite the outcome :yes:

@Baseball Mom I think that's why I kind of liked that Mike just said that he was "falling in love" to Jasmine. I think that both Mike and Jasmine were at the "falling" stage, in contrast to the other's saying "I am completely in love with you". Had there been more time, or if this was a different format, perhaps things could have continued to progress.

I agree it's great that Mike stayed true to himself throughout. His father said that he knew Mike would've been introspective during the process, and I do think there was an aspect of Mike getting caught up in his own mind. Mike said he wished he'd spoken to his father earlier, and IMO that HTD did put certain things into perspective which led to the pre-RC talk. Ultimately though I think this will all work out as it's meant to. And yes so true, when Mike finds the ONE Mike's family will be so loving and welcoming. Smiley

Yup, that prominent chin definitely runs in the family giggling And yet, he and his brother are quite different. He has dark coloured hair while Mikey's is a dirty blonde but both very good-looking in thier own unique way beatingheart

Yes @Joy15 I meant to mention that VO where Jasmine says about Mike: "I know that if he allowed himself to open up I think that he would be the person that I would end up with."

In Sharleen's recap she mentioned that she clearly had a soft spot for Mike and Jasmine and that she was mourning what could have been. I know some people didn't see anything between them, but I saw the foundation of what could've been something very special from the first night. Sharleen said that for some reason she felt like Mike and Jasmine could've been totally happy under other circumstances. And that it was as though they had dated and got to know each other at a real world pace, but because of time constraints and other factors the relationship just never got to the part where it could blossom. I think I feel the same way about it.

When Jasmine said post-show that her relationship goal was to go from friends to lovers I really thought that could connect to Jasmine and Mike. I thought that even though their relationship was taking more time to develop than others, once it had a little more time it could've grown into something wonderful. I especially thought Cuba and meeting Jasmine's Mother and sister could've been incredible. But alas that wasn't to be, not within the framework of this show.

And I respect that. Mike wasn't yet ready to say that he was "completely in love'". But I think that if he had reached that point with some more time, it would've been for forever. All JMO.
