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

So I'm turning to the 11th season of The Bachelorette for help. Week 3 of dating is all about showing how serious you are. That is why Kaitlyn chose a sumo wrestling group date and a sex education group date. Here are the key lessons I learned to advance my own romantic connections:

1. Don't hate on her date ideas.

Kaitlyn likes fun and adventurous dates. But America's favorite “Healer," Tony, has had enough with all the aggression and just wants peaceful dates like skydiving, imitating animals at the zoo, or staring at each other for hours in silence. Saying no to what your date is interested in is not the way to win her hand in marriage. It's just a one-way ticket out of the relationship. Tony. I miss you already.
