26 Times The Bachelor Described Our Lives

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at PSU chapter.

When we all watch The Bachelor on Mondays and gawk at the extravagant boat rides, private concerts and romantic dates, it all seems to come straight out of a fairytale. But believe it or not, we actually have a lot more in common with this show than you think. Here are 26 times The Bachelor totally got us:


1. When you host your own party for the first time


2. When there are two kinds of people at a themed party


3. When you find out the guy you like has a girlfriend


4. When your outfit is on point


5. When you turn a guy down, but he keeps trying


6. When Adele gets shuffled into your turn-up playlist


7. When the DJ finally plays your song


8. When you finally get Pokey Stix after a night out


9. When you only go to the football games for the chicken baskets


10. When your Tinder match catfishes you


11. How you feel for the first five minutes at the gym


12. When you meet a philosophical drunk


13. When you see your Snap Story in the morning


14. When you have that one friend who has never seen snow before


15. When your best friend gets a boyfriend


16. When you walk into a frat. Period


17. When your alcohol is more important than your personal safety


18. When you remember that Canyon is only $1


19. When you’re the mom of the friend group


20. When you have to get your drunk friend home


21. When all of your friends are in relationships


22. When you’re the only one of your friends who didn’t pregame the pregame


23. When your friends try to document the entire night for Snapchat


24. When you get to a party and Natty is the only drink left


25. When you found out that Wings Over closes at 1 a.m. now instead of 3 a.m.


26. When you’re in the Uber but still trying to turn up
