It wasn’t looking good for Dean at the start of his one-on-one date on this week’s episode of. The living Ken doll chose to joke around with Rachel instead of opening up to her as they strolled around Geneva, but that all changed at dinner.
When Rachel asked him to are you serious, Dean exposed why he’s very nervous about Rachel meeting his family if she selected him for next week’s hometown dates.
Dean had previously revealed his mother died when he was a teen, and on this episode, he opened up about his laboured relation with “his fathers”. His mother’s death made even more strain on their relationship.
When my mother passed away, the first 15 years of “peoples lives”, my father was the one who was like Hey, let’s travel dirtbiking, let’s become snowboarding. He was never the one who was like Let me drive you to school, let me take you to lunch, “hes never” that person. So the second my mother passed away, who was that person, he wasn’t be permitted to flip the permutation and grow the person that I necessary him to be and it took a big hit on our relationship.
Dean went on to say that his father is eccentric now, and he wishes Rachel could have met his family back when his mother was still around.
He’s just not a person that has only one bearing on my emotional experience, I guess you could say. He’s become quite a bit more eccentric. So what I wish you could see is the family that I had in my most developmental years of ages 0 to 15, and not their own families that abandoned me at the most vulnerable time in my life.
But the discussion didn’t scare away Rachel. On the contrary, Rachel praised Dean for eventually opening up to her and offered him a rose.
So we’ll be converging Dean’s family next week!
