Brendan Morais is out. The man who earned Tayshia Adams’ first one-on-one date on The Bacheloretteeradicated himself on Monday night time’s episode, earlier than she may supply him the possibility to take their relationship to the subsequent stage within the fantasy suite.
After a date trying out rings with Neil Lane (throughout which Brendan regarded essentially the most uncomfortable a contestant has ever regarded on this present), Brendan and Tayshia sat down for a romantic dinner. That’s the place Tayshia shared her emotions, and Brendan revealed he could not reciprocate.
Tayshia started the dialog by admitting to Brendan that after their first one-on-one, she knew she may “totally see myself marrying him at the end of this.” “That made me so excited, but I just feel like I’ve been lost… I don’t know where you are,” she shared.
“I completely agree with you as far as the moment you stepped in front of me and I laid eyes on you, this entire experience for me completely shifted,” Brendan mentioned. “But today definitely reinforced the gravity of that moment and giving someone that engagement ring is giving them eternity with you, in a certain sense, and this is a forever moment. I don’t take that lightly at all, and I’m not going to lie, this has been a challenging past couple days and weeks for me.”
Brendan continued, expressing that he thought he was able to take the subsequent step.
“I want a wife and kids and a family more than anything on the face of this earth. But then coming to the realization that there’s a big part of me that’s still broken,” he mentioned, alluding to his divorce from his highschool sweetheart. “There’s a big part of me that still needs time to heal. There’s a big part of me that needs time to grow, because I still think there are pieces of myself I need to pick up. And all I want is to give my whole heart, but as I sit here today, my heart isn’t whole.”
“And it really breaks my heart, because you deserve a man that is complete and you deserve a man who is healed from his past. And unfortunately right now I’m not that man,” Brendan added. “So, I’m so sorry.”
Tayshia did not shed a tear as she processed Brendan’s phrases, and informed him that whereas she might need been “really pissed off” at him prior to now, she understands the place he is coming from, “because we both have been married before.”
“And as much as I would love to be with you at the end of all this, if you’re not ready, that’s not something I’m going to push you to do. I’ve already fought for someone to try and love me once, I’m not going to do it again,” she mentioned. “I don’t know what else to say. Can I walk you out?”
With that, Tayshia walked Brendan to his automobile, and ready to say goodbye.
“I’m sad,” she confessed to the digital camera. “Brendan is definitely someone I saw a future with, and I really thought I was going to be with him. I really thought I was going to end up with Brendan. He’s been a person every single day that I’ve been like, ‘It’s Brendan.’ Every single day. Since our first one-on-one, he’s the one that made me put my walls down. I just felt, like, safe with him.”
Tayshia cried as she gave Brendan one final hug and closed the ebook on their future collectively.
“Tayshia told me that she really could picture me as her husband at the end of this, she could picture a life with me,” Brendan informed the digital camera. “That is really the first time she’s expressed that to me, so it makes it that much harder.”
“Me not being ready comes at a huge price, giving up the opportunity to have a future with Tayshia, and me ending something really special before it started,” he mentioned, wiping his tears away. “Seeing Tayshia that upset was devastating.”
