“I think you have to go through the hard and the difficult in order to see the good. … It was important to go through heartbreak in order to see the beauty and love. Chris was always there and I always was falling in love with him. It’s not like I woke up one day and was like, ‘Oh, here’s the man of my dreams. I never put pressure on having to have the ending be a proposal. I wanted to go into it open-minded and open-hearted. … Chris was never just — I would’ve never gone that far if I didn’t see it as a lifetime.”
All season long Desiree was in love with Brooks Forester. She barely got over Brooks’ abrupt departure when she began seeing Chris in a different light. Was she looking for comfort and Chris just so happened to be there? It was just scenes prior that she said her feelings for Drew Kenney and Chris weren’t on the same level as those for Brooks. It all changed drastically when Brooks was no longer available. Desiree viewed the whole experience as though Chris was the door that opened when another one closed. Does this make it true love? Stranger things have happened. People fall in love under various circumstances in ways no one else can possibly understand.
Desiree and Chris appear to be a happy couple, but are they capable of staying in it for the long haul? Hopefully this “Bachelorette” couple will be another Ashley and JP success story.
