It's nice to see the whole season come to fruition. I look at this process as the journey of a man, which every guy goes through in life at different stages. I can honestly say that there may not have been another point in my life in which there was so much personal growth. The Leadership Foundation is what I believe to be a legacy, one that I hope far surpasses my own life and can be something the Nordgren family and all those involved will cherish and hold on to forever.
Through this process I hope everyone sees that people who are very close can put aside their differences and find the positive in relationships and therefore become closer than before. It's obvious that my relationship with Courtney has evolved tremendously. I don't think either of us will regret taking the steps that we have. I didn't think there was a way for us to become closer, but we did just that. This is a woman that I love and have tremendous respect for in every aspect of the word. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for the both of us. The one thing I know is that it will never be the same.
I expected Courtney to be a Republican but thoght Matt was a little more progressive. Nobody on the show is all that bright so I shouldn't be surprised they are Republicans. Not sure why Bravo made a show about these people. Reality TV is only fun if the people are smart, good looking or funny. These people are barely average in these categories. Hope they don't renew it.
Watching this episode, really shows you that there is true love out there and I feel that Courtney and Matt need to remove the layers and just give in to what everyone see's. It is understandable that they are affraid that if they go there they may not be able to reconnect the friendship, but do you want to always wonder what if?
Life is too short.....
Ok, so never posted on a shows blog, but I have to say this Texas gal thinks Matt and Courtney are prefect for each other! I wish you all the best, you two would make some pretty babies.
Matt, you've grown so much! I happened to catch the finale, and was impressed with the amount of chemistry between you and Courtney. But I truly think that while you were ready to express your emotions, she continues to play cat and mouse games with you. She's probably trying to protect herself, but it's evident that she simply won't acknowledge what is evident which is that yes she was incredibly jealous of and rude to Neill. The fact that this can't be admitted means that she is still playing some games bc deep down she wants you to chase her. I have grown quite fond of you, and think that you have developed a lot during the filming of this show. Good luck to you and your charity! BTW, stay away from Taylor, that just cannot work out for you!

A good woman is worth more than any material thing in the world. She encourages, strengthens, supports, holds steady and is a pillar to her man. It will not be fair to Courtney for you to wait to til she is swept away by someone who sees the value of her then you step in and make her choose. You choose now! Be fair!
I am sorry , Matt. But this woman was MEANT for you!! You two are what make me watch the show.. I scream at my TV.. routing for you two. She is such an incredible woman,, that would do anything for you! You may try to be a player,. but you have always been in love with her!! I wish you both the best of luck and can not WAIT to watch the wedding episode. That is your man, Court.. you held your ground.. were a faithful woman to a man that.. well, do I need explain? Love you both!!
What an episode......I think Matt really wanted to take their relationship to the next level. You can see him testing her throughout the last couple of episodes. Courtney has always loved him. It just takes men longer to realize what they have in front of them.. ..he already said it———she is the BEST FRIEND he always knew he wanted in a girl and what his mother states is the reason for her long marriage with Matt's dad!! He'll either wake up or she will find someone before he does!! I would love to see them together——they have this chemistry together that makes me cheer for them to work out!!!
Hot!! Matt has tested Courtney in the last couple of episodes to take it to the next level.....he has already stated that she is the BEST FRIEND and that was the basis for his parents successful marriage. He, unfortunately, will take longer to realize what is in front of him is real. I am cheering them on!! Just go for it!! You two have great chemistry—tonights episode proved that!!
It's really nice to see when a guy really gets it's!! Matt I think you finally got it God has shown you his path for you but like always it's up to you to take that path. It's clear to all if us which path its so go grab the bull by the horns and plan that wedding. Theres no need to date her you have already survived the worse and the best you know you are both there for each other during those times. So dont waste your time dating you have already been dating her a lifetime you just didn't let the other dates in on it... She's your BF you odviously want her as a lover she's your confidant ... Go say I do... The rest of us dream of what y'all have...... Love..... The love a Texas Lady is like no other .... From a Texas Lady
So, I haven't been watching religiously, bu each time I have watched the so, it's so obvious that you and Courtney are in love. You are both right that timing in essential. However, don't looser her before you have her. She love's you, but she's a strong woman and she's not going to wait for you for ever, or watch you with other women for much longer. You guys always want your cake and eat it too. Well, she is your cake and ready for you to take not just a slice but the entire baking dish!
I just have to say....you guys are HOT! A HOT COUPLE, who I hope have beautiful babies togehter! :0) Love, love, love seeing you to together on the show! I think everyone does! My husband and I share the same passion. Everyone is so right that everything is soooo much better with your best friend!
i was shocked to hear on andy live that you are involved with taylor armstrong. you are just sick to want attention that much. better hold on to your wallet. to pass up courtney for taylor is just sick.
Matt, let Courtney go, if you cant commit to her, then quit leading her on and flirting with her. She is in love with you and its not fair for you to lead her on and make her think that she can reform you and get you to settle down. You two play games with each other and test each others boundaries and feelings. It has to stop, Courtney will never move on from you otherwise. She wants kids and a husband, you would marry her and give her that if you really loved her and wanted to spend the rest of your life with her. She needs to get started soon on having kids, these are her child bearing years and when she is 40, is when its really too late. Be clear with her and end things if you cant commit. Make it clear to her that your not ever going to marry her or have kids with her. Stop the flirting etc. You two have tangled yourselves a very unhealthy web. She isnt going to find a man who will believe her that she isnt in love with you. The footage doesnt lie. You need to set Courtney straight. Otherwise, she will be livid and stop you from ever having a serious relationship with a woman. Courtney will end up 40 with no kids and no husband. That would be sad. As for you Matt, you need to get real, what is so great about being single and playing this flirting game with all these women? Get over yourself, and grow up. Dont you want kids? The longer you wait because of your own selfish needs, is the longer that your kids will live in this world without you. Meaning you might be a 40 year old dad and have only 30-35 years with them. Grow up and get over your ego.
I'm confused???? I saw you in the club house tonight and it seemed as if you and Courtney are not together.
You seem like a great guy...just not ready to settle down.
Good to see you giving back as you seemed to be blessed with family money, looks, etc.
I was watching the Andy After Dark Show you two did together and ther was one quote that struck me twords the end of the show... "It's alway's been about not losing her." So don't lose her!
Matt what is up with the commitment issues? I hope Courtney is still around when you are ready to settle don. She's a great girl, and seems like a perfect fit for you.
Hey Matt! After watching WWHL it came out that you ruined things with Courtney, how unfortunate.
You two really had a lot of chemistry. I hope you are able to repair any damage you may have done.
I love Courtney! When will you wake up and get your act together, Matt?!
You need to have the talk with Courtney, that you love her but you dont LOVE her. Seriously. Its not ok to string someone along and say everything they want to hear to avoid the simple truth that you just "arent THAT into them". Its obvious you love her, but the true test is can you be a REAL MAN and let her know the honest truth...even if it ruins things?
Hunh? Courtney and Matt, whatchoo guys DOIN'?? Are you playing games and pretending you are just "friends" for the cameras so you can keep this Bravo gig going? Come on now. Life is short.
Matt - Courtney loves you. It is quite obvious that you have feelings for her. When Mark when back to South Africa you were glad. Please make a commitment to her or let her go so she can find someone, get married and have the family that she so desperately wants.
I was so excited after watching the Season Finale. I thought "FINALLY"! However, after watching Watch What Happens Live...I was completely disappointed in Matt. Let me also say that seasoned actors cannot recreate kisses like Courtney and Matt shared! Come on get it together Matt, before someone else takes her from you!
Very disappointed in you. How can you hint that you & Kourt have what your parents have want her then on WWHL you two are not together. Seems like you'll always be "in love" with the thrill of something new.
After watching WWHL, it made the last episode feel like a manipulation. I didn't see much of your "personal growth" after it appears you messed things up with Courtney. What is this "exploring" B.S.? You need to let Courtney go because clearly you can't commit to her and don't love her as she loves you. You don't seem to understand how women think. She's not one of the toys in your toy box. Be a true friend to her and let her move on as you are not worthy of her!
Matt, I've never commented on a blog before, Here goes.... I grew up in the, " White Rock " area. met the love of my life @ 15, stayed together for a few years, and then he broke my heart..That was 39 years ago Matt, I've never forgotten him, always loved him, and had to put him in a place of my heart that no one will ever be allowed to go again. I, had too, in order to move on with my life. He was, MY BEST Friend, ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE, tHAT WAS A DOUBLE WHAMMY, LOSING THE LOVE OF MY LIFE AND MY BF. Isn't that what we want Matt? To find true love, and have a best friend! You have that with Courtney. STOP, being afraid, and make a committment. You're 29 years old, it's time. The reason I tell you this, is simple. You're still young, BEFORE you know it, you will be 56 years old, and your heart will always be missing something. Dude, YOU TWO " HAVE IT ." WE HAVE NO GUARANTEES IN THIS LIFE ANYMORE MATT, TRUST ME : ) Anyway, to let you in on a secret, I found my true love back in 2009, he will be moving here at the end of November. You can't imagine how many times he has said too me, " I shoukd have never let you go.' LOVE HER OR LET HER GO, MATT BUT, if you do, I believe in MY heart, that you are making the biggest mistake of your life. I watched the show, just because of you two. Good luck : ) Do you even read these comments?
I have been Married for 13 years to my Best Friend its a wonderful feeling, and the best is the love we share for each other, and the feeling that we have each other no matter what. I tought you have that, and I was soo happy to see you evolved. After WWHL I was sooo dissapointed. You blog about your personal growth, but you are not seeing what your acts may do to people who really love you and support you. Right now it hurts to be Courtney, you can see that she is expecting something from you that you are not willing to give...You shouldnt have gone that path if you were not to finish it. I only hope you realize that fame is not always there, and dont pass an oportunity that will hunt you forever. Everyone sees love between you guys, open your eyes. Remember to seek Forgiveness with an excuse is not a real plead. Man up, do the right thing. Hoping for the best, expecting the worst.
Matt, you are a hottie and you know it. You have it all, looks, personality and money. You are stringing Courtney along. Leave her be. You didn't like when she had the South African, he liked her! I am routing for you two. I was soo happy when you kissed (you were the aggressor), I posted my joy on my facebook wall. I think you are too self-absorbed to realize what a great woman you have. You are going to blink and she is going to be gone. Get some therapy to get over this commitment phobia you have. Taylor Armstong is not for you, watch your pocketbook. She comes with much much baggage.
Court you are so witty and funny! Run Run fast from him! He likes to play games. He is full of himself and insecure at the same time! Please post this Bravo, you never post any of my comments! Please, please, please!
Really, Matt? You are a stupid fool if you let Courtney go. Get down on one knee, ask her to marry you, and get on with what could be an incredible life! Or your can just continue on the way you are until your 15 minutes of fame is over.
Matt, if there is one thing that I have learned in life, then it is this. It's one thing where you know what you want and you go for it, it's another thing where you don't know what you want, and you string people you care about along only to end up hurting them. Courtney is an amazing woman from what I have seen on this show and more than a friend, she seems to be that type of companion you need in life to fulfill you. Your parents are right when they say that they work because they are best friends...that is what makes a marriage last. Being best friends with your spouse. In your behind the scenes footage of your date, you told Courtney that it doesn't have to end up the way that she wants...that timeline. Sometimes things are meant to happen in other ways. I hate to break this to you buddy, but if Courtney ends up marrying someone else who truly loves her and takes care of her the way you should, it will totally destroy you! That kiss you had, didn't just say chemistry, it said something more. It totally said you care for her, otherwise you would never have kissed her. Matt, I love my best friend to death, but we have never felt that way for one another. We are dependent on one another but we also are extremely supportive of one another as well. I told him that I am involved and soon-to-be engaged to a wonderful man, the first thing he said was "I have never heard you be this happy about any man. He truly is a keeper! I can't wait to meet him!" Can I tell you, this man is someone who I have chemistry with and is becoming my best friend. Matt, there is nothing wrong with taking things forward with someone who is your best friend, especially when you know that person has qualities you have looked for in a potential partner. Hope this helps! :)
I'm so sad for the season to end -- just when it's getting to the best part!! I'm so glad to see you two together, realize what you have and what it's worth! I'm married to my best friend and can't imagine it another way.
For some reason, I was watching this show yesterday and I kept thinking "Why am I watching this?" Each person on this show is awful. I feel for the single people of Dallas if they are the most eligible.
I thought it was so cute when Courtney and Matt rode off on horses together! So romantic! I really hope they stay together, they're just too CUTE!
You commented that you've never had a kiss as good as the one you had with Courtney due to the 5 years of pent-up feeling/tension. This is not why it was so good. Time/tension can lead to horrible kisses--lots of male-female "friends" try kissing after a long time of wondering what it would be like, and it can be a negative (awkward) to awful experience. It can ruin the friendship (the friends hang out less together afterwards to avoid that situation again) or just be nothing special/a little embarrassing and chalked up to a weird moment. You two have a love and chemistry that is unique/special that makes her kisses that much better for you. But, you clearly don't want to settle down with one person right now and want to "explore" relationships (you call them "friendships") with other women (Taylor, MJ, whomever else). This is SOOO unfair to Courtney, who clearly is "in love" with you. Put all your cards on the table with her. If you want to know if you can have a romantic relationship that can "pan out" (whether or not it leads to marriage), try it! If it doesn't work out, don't be selfish about not wanting to lose her. Let her go so she can have a life; she will never fully commit to a man while hoping you're going to come around. Please look at what you're doing from her perspective--your "explorations of other relationships" while keeping her on hold are so unfair to her. If you're not into her, tell her so she can move on. If you don't think you can ever be with one person, that's OK. Not everyone should get married (anybody that can't commit to one person should just stay single). Don't just lead her on and give her false hope (like you are) that you'll someday propose marriage to her. [You even told her you might propose to her someday out of the blue, and over and over that she was the most important woman in your life!!!] And one of the promos showed you saying that the person you want to spend the rest of your life with might be right in front of you, but nothing became of that comment later (edited out by Bravo due to change in your views?). Clearly you were thinking about the potential with Courtney at one point. Put all your cards on the table, stay in the here and now (not what COULD be in the future). Courtney says she'll be in your life forever, but she may not be. Don't count on it, Mr. I Get Whatever I Want. I think you need to talk to your parents about their marriage and your view that nobody has a relationship like theirs. While I don't know them/their relationship at all, I'm sure they have their arguments/problems/issues. Maybe your dad went through a phase where he didn't think he wanted live with one woman for the rest of his life. How did he deal with it? How about your mom? Most marriages go through ups and downs (I have been married to a wonderful man for 19 years, and many have told us that we have an ideal marriage, but others don't know I struggled about 10 years ago with the idea of being with one person for the rest of my life). Instead of cheating on my spouse, I discussed all of my concerns with him and we worked through it TOGETHER. It took some time, but when we're on the resolved side of an obstacle, our relationship is always STRONGER than it was before we weathered the problem. You seem to be addicted to that initial intense passion you get in the early stages of dating/"hanging out" with people you're attracted to. However, intimacy is far better in a committed relationship! That intense initial passion goes up and down, but the emotion and love becomes stronger and more intense in a marriage over time, heightening intimate experiences. Please decide what you want and let Courtney know out of respect for her. If you don't know, tell her you need to explore other relationships with women. Let her decide if she wants to date. You can never be "just friends" (contrary to what you say). Friends don't kiss like you two did. That shared experience will always be in the background of your relationship. What is your issue with dating? What you are doing (your behavior) is in fact dating! You can date multiple people at once without any desire to marry! If you want to date Courtney and other women (if Courtney is willing to do so), to explore several possibilities, talk to her about this. But treat her with class (not a friend "with benefits"). She deserves way more respect than that. You're acting a bit like an entitled man who always gets what he wants (except from the one lady who jilted you). You think your relationship has grown/is stronger? Right now, it appears strained and Courtney is understandably sarcastic/doubtful/unsure. You don't get strength in relationships without resolutions. Please don't just think about your needs and wants right now--your actions are undoubtedly confusing and hurtful to Courtney. It's amazing she's still around, for now...but when she gets smart/tired of waiting, she'll put her attention into someone else and have less time for you. Your significant other SHOULD be your best friend (so you'll probably lose that status anyway when she finds someone else to date/marry). Bottom line: do something to change your relationship with her so you can both move on (with each other or with other people!).
I'm so mad that you and Courtney said you weren't dating on WWHL! I just knew you were going to say you all were/are together. I mean, I was totally let down and almost turned the show off...LOL (but i didn't)! I got so tickled at Andy for moving the wheel around just to make you all kiss again. I agree with everyone else...GO GET HER! If you wait she's going to slip right past you. I mean what the heck is taking you so long? What are you not seeing here? Y'all are too cute and perfect to not be together. Loved the show! Can't wait for another season.
Matt, Courtney shows "some" quality traits, but the fact remains that she walks over people trying to have genuine conversations. When did she become a subject matter expert on matters of love and relationships? (or anything for that matter). She and you both are guilty of not putting yourselves out there and you both seem to be afraid of risks that are inherent in a committed relationship. I won't be watching too much more of Most Eligible because it just embellishes the career single mentality. Healthy relationships take emotional work which seems to be a trait that did not present itself well in the series. Good luck to both of you but with a season over and both of you still in non committed role towards each other is more than enough for me.
Matt- The effort you put into the date and the way you were with Courtny on the finale was not shown on WWHL. Don't know if it was a front...If you really care about or "love" Courtney as you say you do; you would let her go so she can find the love that she deserves.
PS...Taylor Armstrong---EWWW!!!!!!!!!!, just shows you will hook up with anyone and will probably hurt Court.
I find it ironic that this Matt fellow was on the post-show and it was sponsored by Summer's Eve. Bavo, Bravo.
I'm confused, was this love wknd w/ Courney musty for the cameras? You say you don't "play games,"' yet your biggest game is on Courtney. This woman you "have tremendous respect for in every aspect of the word."' Show her that respect & let her go... For her. Otherwise all that's clear is your selfishness.
Courtney......you are a beautiful girl! But you are letting Matt have his cake and eat it too. You are making it too easy for him to have all your attention and date other women. I think you need to be honest with yourself and tell Matt that you are in love with him and either he is with you....or he needs to let you go. You guys could be doing this song and dance for 10 more years. And he'll end up marrying someone else. You are a great girl and deserve to be someone's one and only. Good luck to you! I'm really hoping that that Matt see's that you love him for him.....and not for the money etc!
