GMA: Chris Harrison The Bachelor Roles Of Dating
Chris Harrison, the host of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, came to Good Morning America to talk about the new roles of men and women in the world of dating. He said that the roles have been pushed and not reversed. He thinks that things are still kept in traditional lines, men still propose to women and women still want to be treated special by men. He doesn’t think that anyone wants a complete role reversal.
Harrison said that The Bachelorette still works because the men still take control in the dating process. He didn’t seem to think that the women take control in the process at all, but that it is equal between men and women. He thinks that women want equality and also to be treated “like a lady.” Lara Spencer made sure to specify the equality part.
Harrison said that you have to be happy with yourself and admit that another person is not going to fulfill your life. It’s important to know what you like and go after it. Harrison said he is a traditional person who likes the ideas of chivalry and wants a smart person who can be his equal.

Because you’re the only ten I see.” Date number three described herself as funny, hard working and always up for a good time. The bachelor picked date number two.
