What’s On the Inside Counts

The whole concept of this show revolves around the idea that attraction is a pretty good bonus, but it’s what’s on the inside that counts. The successful couples on this show were able to tie the knot because they only got to embrace the personality, the values, and the morals of the person on the other side of the screen. Looks didn’t mean anything to them.

You Need to Love Yourself

In the words of Ru Paul, if you can’t love yourself, then how in the heck are you going to love somebody else? Throughout Love Is Blind, we learned that self-love and self-acceptance are extremely important when it comes to relationships. In fact, Carlton taught us that many of us can’t embrace loving another person before loving ourselves. If you have inner demons you need to work out or whether you’re just a little confused about what you want in life, you need to think about that before meeting that special person.

Jessica and Mark with some serious issues in Love Is Blind, and that’s because they didn’t act on their red flags.

Although we hate to be cliche, love really is blind — and this show was awesome.
