James' Response To His Elimination Breaks Our Hearts AGAIN
If you've been watching the Bachelorette it's pretty much a given that you've fallen for the sweet but humble James Trethewie.
Then last night James was dumped in the shock move of the series.
WHY SOPHIE, WHY!?
We reminded ourselves it's just a TV show and picked ourselves up and had a good night's sleep.
Then we're hit by this, this morning...
A two part essay about his strong feelings towards Sophie, his broken heart and everything that he's gotten out of the 'journey'.
broken. 💔 ~ part 1 this is hard to share, but also really important for me as part of the healing process.. Soph, I'm so incredibly grateful to have met you, for the experiences & feelings we shared. You're an incredibly beautiful & compassionate human inside & out, I wish you all the best & know whatever decision you have made it'll be the best one for you, which makes me happy. I also want to thank you for one of the best gifts in life you could give me.. and that's facing my biggest fear, and I'm so grateful as now I feel I can accomplish & face anything life throws my way 💙✨ ... I honestly thought & could see myself standing there with you at the end, it was a shock for me to leave tonight... i know we were told we're not compatible by e-harmony dude and I get it.. I'm both a Virgo & Libran (cusp sign) so can't help being somewhat organised 🙈 .. but definitely not too serious. ... I know the feelings & chemistry were real 🔥 and watching it back on TV just re-confirms this for me... it didn't work out with us, and that's completely okay, if it were meant to be it would have been.. and I honestly have nothing but love & respect for you and hope more than anything we can turn our connection into one that's best mates as it'd be a shame to let it go completely. ... And to everyone that's gotten behind me I love you so much 🙌🏽❤️ 🇦🇺 all of your messages, support, comments & positivity have been overwhelming and I wish I could bear hug you all right now 🤗 .. it's been awesome to be able to use this platform, as I really wanted to take you all behind the scenes and for you to share & experience the journey with me along the way, and know where my head was at, or how I was feeling at each stage of this, otherwise it wouldn't have been real.. and last week I honestly thought I'd be introducing Soph to my family. ... #bacheloretteau
Be still our hearts!
He's like the perfect man...

~ part 2 ... and I'm also sorry if I let anyone down. the thing I'm proud of most is going on here & being 100% myself, genuine, and authentic... and I'm glad you can see that shine through. Also showing you can be a 'manly man' , changing tires, sailing yachts, light fires & build sh*t, but at the same time still have respect for women & allow them to be empowered & to be themselves without needing to be controlling... and it's also okay as a guy to show some emotion from time to time. I'm grateful for growing up surrounded by beautiful women who showed me this. ... It was always a roll of the dice & huge risk going into this, by being myself I said from the start Soph is either going to love me for who I am - I'm not changing myself to try & impress her as it's not sustainable to do so in any relationship (as she's not getting to know the real you). And if she likes me for me that's perfect. If not, it's just not meant to be, and that someone out there will like me for me, and by going through this experience it will hopefully lead me to meeting that woman. ... Massive thank you to Soph, the boys in the house for sharing this with me & the now lifelong friendships we've formed, the production team, crew and everyone involved. It's been one hell of a ride and one that's only made me stronger! 🙌🏽❤️✨☀️ #bacheloretteau

OH MY GOD! JAMES, THERE ARE SO MANY WOMAN LINING UP FOR YOU RIGHT NOW!!!!
We'll now have to settle on being emotionally invested in Apollo and hoping the rumours about Stu being the outright winner aren't true...
