I love their Alliteration. Eric and Erin. And you can’t beat a teacher for good parenting. Great choice.
Honestly, it was a really tough choice – the final edit of the segment didn’t show some of the other stuff that was said. I definitely didn’t make a decision based on looks or age – both women were VERY pretty and age-appropriate for me.
Ultimately, I chose the one who lived in Colorado (a practical decision) and talked about her love of food and adventure. It’s hard to make a choice after asking a few short questions – if I could have had a first date with each woman, who knows what I would have decided? Or if either one would have even liked me enough to go on a second date!
I love reading your thoughts on this, so thank you for sharing!
This is hysterical! I had no idea you were on the show. lol
This is so awesome, @[732281096:2048:Eric]!!! Can I see the show online somewhere? According to the comments, the consensus is that you should have picked Renee…
You should just ignore people’s stupid comments (on the SH site anyhow) … and go with your gut. It’s not science, it’s chemistry. And you made a smart choice. Always go with your gut.
Yes- how can we see it online?
That was hilarious to watch, E. I saw them both & thought you would go with Erin.
Ditto the request for a link to see the show. Wow!
Weird that Harvey doesn’t have video on his site.
Nope, she has no children in has a 12 year old that he seems devoted to, problems from the get go.
No, he should’ve picked Renee. She seemed to have more in common with him. Didn’t like Erin’s response regarding children.
My son and I were watching and the both of us said that he should have picked Renee! He had this look on his face as to say… Yeah I like you but pick Erin
If someone tells you they don’t want children(of their own)….that means they don’t want YOUR children either.
Well, Renee would have been the better choice but, of course Eric did not hear anything beyond Erin saying “I will try anything once”. He was not interested in whether his daughter would like Erin or not. Everything that he said he was looking for in a woman he lied about. We can see that he felt he would have to work to hard with Renee and her children. He just want someone to play with. Erin told him that she would not have children but, I do have my degree in Chlid development, WOW! The poor daughter will probably have to compete for Dads affection after dating Erin. She seems self centered. This is going to be interesting to watch. You deserve better Reneei.
I think Renee is the better choice; however, his thought process could have been that sometimes blended families can be difficult to handle….and since Erin doesn’t have kids or want kids, his daughter will not have to vie for attention. He cut out a lot of work.
No! He was going off attracrion. Not off her qualification. Renee was better suited. I noticed Erin danced around some of his questions she didnt give straight forward answers. Besides I cant see someone who doesnt want children wanting to deal with children every day.
From the start, right or wrong, I predicted Erin would be the pick only because she is younger. Most men do look at the number unfortunately.
I was actually surprised when he chose Erin. Renee was more comfortable in her own skin. Seemed like she would be open and easy to talk to. She didn’t have to think about what she was going to say. Actually looking for a solid relationship and complete family. If Eric tries with Erin he will eventually find himself competing with her career. And as a father I thought he would have noticed how Renee protects her own children (per her answer) and see it as how she would protect his child. A single parent, male or female should be looking for a mate who is a parent at heart. Not someone who makes a promise that they think you need to hear them make.
Wow, loving your comments…lots to think about! (Here’s my blog: http://datingdad.com).
Hey Eric. watching this program with my g/f while on vacation, we both though that Renee was the better choice. Erin didnt even come up to you as she won. More concernined with shaking Steve’s hand.
The young lady if she does mot want to have kids of her own she will not want to raise someone else kids just my thought ..
I thought Renee was a better choice. I didn’t think her comment about children was compatible with him.
He should have picked Renee. Erin is going to open a restaurant. He may have thought she was cute. Men tend to be superficial. He will find out.
I honestly think he has chosen the wrong lady. My rationale behind this is because he’s really about his daughter (which is great) and because Erin doesn’t have children that could be a game changer when the relationship is tested and he can’t be with her like she wants him to. I think he’s looking to get his world rocked and not think too much about a ‘real’ relationship right now, which is fine if that’s what you’re looking for. I respect Renee she is very focused on her children and want to be able to keep her personal life separated from her family life until the man that comes along proves himself to be worthy of her time and then her family’s time.
Uhh no…. To me Renee was a better choice for him. Renee as a woman nd a mom made just the correct responses. Respectfully my opinion…
I’m so glad he picked Erin! I didn’t lie Renee at all! I think she’s pompous. And I think she’s been around the block a few too many times getting her nose fixed up and some Botox.
just like a high school answer. go back to school and learn relationships before you blurt out.
Possibly. Although, Erin has plan to open a business soon I don’t know how much time she will actually have to invest in a relationship
I would have picked rene
ERRRRIC…you need Renee by your side. She seems more established and a better fit. Erin isn’t interested in havin kids so she may not have that mothering nature your daughter will need esp as she approaches those tween/teens/adult years! I mean come on she has a degree in ECH but is working in resturant biz and has been there for 20 years (Raises eyebrow)! Erin seems like she may be more trying to be a “friend” to his daughter versus being the “mother figure” she will need. Get Renee’s number and caller!
I agree, I have no idea why he went with Erin…
The right pick. Considering she doesn’t have children to complicate matters. She can concentrate on him and his child now and get to know
MMMMMMmmmmm should have picked Renee–seemed like a more “warm and fuzzy”lady. Because they both have children, I am sure the want the end result to be a “blended” family that works well together, whereas Erin doesn’t even want children, but she will “accept” his one daughter. No dice!
Eric—-you goofed big time—see if you can get Renees number, if it’s not against the rules of the show!
I think so they look really good 2 gether
I think they would have a connection because he has learned from his past and Erin know what she want. ” Way To Go Steve”!
I feel he should of picked the 41yr old. In my opinion Erin working in the restaurant business for 20yrs, now 35…No kids, raises an eyebrow.
No I think Renee was better for him they make better couple
no…no chemistry. She doesn’t seem into it.
I personally thought he should have picked Renee.
Renee should have been his pick. Her response regarding dates do not meet her children until she feels the relationship progress well shows she will make good choice regarding his daughter as well. Also, did you see how far away Erin moved from Eric after she won. She just wanted to win, not necessarily win him. Ha ha that’ s what you get for picking a woman who does not want children but has a degree in children education and does not teach but works in the restaurant biz for over 20 years and is only 35 yrs old. That proves men do not listen to what women say only what they look like in that dress. Gooooood Luck on your future date searches cause this match ain’t gonna work. Hope you let me know.
Hey Aliison what a great view on that segment. I totally agree. Many of these segments on love people just want not to be the loser on tv. This love wont work. Notice on how she wanted to shake Steve’s hand MORE than her new date?
I liked the other lady
The other lady seemed like a better fit. Something about Erin’s response about children, gives me a feeling she may not deal with his daughter well. I may be wrong….best wishes to them!
I thought the same thing!!! I didnt feel that Erin answered his question about dealing with kids. I think Renee was the better fit and they had the most eye contact. He picked her b/c she was younger!!!
I agree with Takin. He picked the younger one. The child response is too questionable. My g/f thought the other woman was a better fit. For me, stop using the media for your romance problem.
Yep…I think they will make a cute couple. Gotta see how they mesh behind the cameras, but if they are compatible, they will go far!
I think they will have a connection, they look good together.
I don’t think so, I think the other lady was the best for him, but that’s just my opinion.
Ummmm,,,,, you mean Eric & Erin
Yes I think they will and they look really cute together. Good job Steve.
