My evening with M.J. was interesting. She is clearly a beautiful woman and about as sweet as it gets. These are my favorite types of nights out now as I get older. I would much rather sit somewhere quiet over dinner or wine and have conversation. Here we get the chance to talk in depth about where we are in life, what we want, and how our minds work. This doesn't happen when you're in a bar or club. It was evident that she was looking and ready for something more serious, and the easy thing to do would be to go along with that. But I pride myself in being honest and open. I wasn't shy about sharing the place I am in life right now -– I'm 28 and just starting to figure out who I am as a man. We both respect each other and went our separate ways.
My favorite part of this episode is without question the end. I don't know how many times that same thing has happened before actually. Because Court and I are both single, it's comforting to fall asleep on the phone together…well not fully asleep, a "goodnight" works much better than a snore. She and I have a special bond that I don't know how to describe to others. In life, sometimes words cannot describe situations, feelings, or things we are thinking. As long as you're genuine with your heart and actions, you don't need words. Just live and enjoy what God gives us.

When you're ready to settle down, my votes for Courtney! Or me ;) the ending scene with you two was adorable and apparently special to you- you even say so in your blog! Love love love the show! I may just have to move to leave Tallahassee and head to Dallas after grad school! Looks fun!
Court's smile when you answered her eyes were gray was a HUGE one! I kept waiting for her to jump out of bed and start dancing around her bedroom. ha ha ha! I'm loving the strong friendship that is your circle but I'm in this til the end...SOMETHING's going on/will go on there somewhere between you two...right? I'm watchin' what happens. :)
You are going to have to be careful with Court. It is obvious that she has special feelings for you and I am not talking the friend kind of feelings that you guys like to say "we are like brother and sister" believe me it doesn't work out that way and she will be jealous of anyone you bring around and may get serious with because it poses a threat to the chance of you two being together. Just saying you will have to let her known either it is never going to happen so she can move on or maybe in the future. She won't be there forever eventually us woman do get tired of the game and always trying to let you know, without letting you know how we feel..lol Can you tell I have been there before? lol. Good luck Matt, I do enjoy your honesty I just think maybe you have a little thing for Court but you keep her on the back burner....just in case. I love the show and I love the chemistry between you and Court (and yes it is there whether you acknowledge it or not) we all can see it. Best of Luck to you both on whatever you chose.
Open and Honest? I beg to differ. All across the country women are deleting Matt from their little black books. Hey! We're on to you buddy!
I'm not seeing much personality from you, and I hope it's not because you rely on superficial things to compensate----maybe it's due to the "editing".... I'm assuming you're very young if you think it's "cool" and gives you clout to parade around with multiple women at a time. Seriously?!!? Observe and learn from your very charming buddy, Glenn. He could soooo easily rely on his good looks, success, and fame, but he chooses to be the "total package" by including his personality and positive energy... Guys that are seen solo are MUCH more appealing to a woman than someone who takes your approach, but it definitely requires CONFIDENCE. That aside, you seem like a fairly nice guy----change your ways, and you'll find the love you deserve :)
I think you are about as sweet as it gets! I am a big fan of yours. You make Dallas look really hot! =)
You and courtney need to just be together I am so tired of this jealousy and uncertainty you guys are perfect for each other. Do you see how natural it was when she came to your house before the auction and you just hugged her and was kissing all over her neck i mean that was iconic...you guys should really give it a chance. OMg Courtney so wants you if you saw that smile oh goodness and you matt have the sexiest smile ever!
You talk way too much, and I think by the end of this, your going to be begging for dates! LAME!
When are you going to realize that no good woman wants a "no strings attached" relationship??? You are delusional if you think anything otherwise.
I love how the date with M.J. ended with Matt whistling as we walked away. That was hilarious! 'Been there done that.
