With only one bed. The general rule of thumb is three dates, but it took 7 episodes until we finally hooked up, way longer than it did last season on The Bachelor. It’s past midnight at the end of a long day, and as we get ready for bed together, Mike confesses about the time he cried as a dentist, and Josh talks about throwing a football helmet in the office. We discuss our favorite music and movies, then turn off the lights and regret not having two beds, let alone two rooms. P.S.
