Tara's still not over how terribly awkward this episode was for everyone.

on Aug 22, 20110

One of the things I love the most about Matt is his honesty. He is one hundred percent upfront with every girl and lets them know he is not looking to settle down. The awkward glances and comments the girls gave each other at the table were odd considering that everyone knew where they stood. Matt never misleads anyone. He had three beautiful women's undivided attention, now that's talent!

How handsome is Glenn? It is kind of ridiculous that he has that face, body, and is such a sweetheart!

Now on to my first date with Jody. Where do I start with all the awkward things that happened? Bowling was absolutely taking me out of my comfort zone. I was surprised in this modern age of technology that bowling has not caught on to real sanitation standards. You have to borrow bowling shoes and all they have as protection are cotton socks? The germ monsters that dwell on those shoes and no protection against them but a thin pair of socks? O.M.G. gross! Considering I was a bowling first timer, I have to admit, I was pretty awesome. 

Now on to the first kiss awkwardness. Who hasn't been there? The back and fourth of do I don't I? Well let me give you advice on this topic. If it doesn't happen naturally during the date, it's going to wind up always being the awkward at the door good-bye kiss. Maybe the fender bender didn't help, but it was truly awkward. Let's just say it should happen naturally.

Hi Tara, Did not think I was going to like you, but you had me at the animal shelter. Thanks for doing that, and importantly, for doing it on your show. Now, can you talk some sense into the RH and convince them to start adopting and STOP buying? : )

I am completely and utterly, in awe of what a wonderful, selfless person you are. Most people with money do not think much or at all of how humanity mistreats animals. I have always had a extra ordinarily sensitive heart when it comes to animals. I too would go to the ends of the earth to protect an animal from being harmed from an ignorant, heartless human being. So it literally brought tears to my eyes seeing someone else who feels for animals the way I do. I really have no words that could express my gratitude for all that you have done, are doing, and will do in the future. My thoughts and prayers are with you always, that you may have the ability to help many, many more animals to come. God bless and again my thanks for helping those that can't help them selves.

You are such a positive energy & I love your devotion to our 4 legged friends. Sorry, but your girl made an ass of herself 2x over. She really never threw herself on the sword with a true apology. YOUR DATE.... Grrrr...Bowling? Not judging Jody but ewww bowling. He would have gotten a lot more (class) points with a wine and sammiches picnic.

Tara, I think you are fantastic, but surely you didn't fail to notice that Courtney never actually apologized.

Well said, Tara! Courtney in no way has a problem and anything between her and Matt is completely normal! Who hasn't had that exact conversation with their best friend? I have! Your date was so cute and I was happy to see it! Drew's on the other hand...cringe worthy for all the fun reasons. Jolly green giant meets Seth Green! You staring at your lap was probably the best thing you could have done! We love you and all you stand for! Keep it up!
