The 2004 season of The Bachelorette again took a runner-up from the previous season of The Bachelor.
After last airing on February 28, 2005, the series returned to ABC during the spring of 2008, following an absence of three years.
Yes, it's great to have a boyfriend or a husband, and I'm not suggesting women give up the idea of happily ever after, but I don't believe in settling...
The truth is, we know what we're looking for and we must never sell ourselves short.'Life can be fabulous on your own - the antidote to dating books!
The series revolves around a single bachelorette (deemed eligible) and a pool of romantic interests (typically 25; 30 in season 5), which could include a potential husband for the bachelorette. Unlike The Bachelor, one of two male suitors proposes to the bachelorette for the final selection.
She penned a self-help book titled Better Single Than Sorry: A No-Regrets Guide to Loving Yourself and Never Settling.
She and fellow Chicago, Illinois resident Joe Waterman married in 2009 and welcomed daughters named Mae Elizabeth and Charlotte Grace in 20, respectively.
A proposal at the end of the show is not always guaranteed.
It is up to the bachelor/bachelorette to decide that.
