My name is Nathan, and I'm bad at love.

So I'm turning to the 11th season of The Bachelorette for help. Week 4 is about beating out your love's new romantic interests. This episode marked the return of former Bachelorette runner-up Nick Viall, who I'm anticipating will provide plenty of future relationship advice.

The bromance of Clint and JJ is over. As Kaitlyn was dumping Clint, he looked to his closest friend for support. Instead JJ publicly demanded that Clint apologize for wasting poor Kaitlyn's time. This heroic betrayal of a friend showed JJ's willingness to put love first no matter what the cost. Clint's expletive-filled final confrontation may have led to JJ crying all alone, but the taste of those tears is worth another week in this journey toward true love.
