Love is Blind

(aka: the Grass is Always Greener on the Other Side of the Fence)
My favorite binge, but I was disappointed that the season is not over
(and I will need to wait week-to-week)
Choices are made, sometimes between two options
People are rejected
And in the end it seems no one is really happy

The Morale: It would be nice if Love were Blind
