Tv show dating and pregnant
Five in all, the growing and glowing women in WE tv's latest lineup play mini-golf, lace up bowling shoes and enjoy romantic non-alcoholic outings, but the mere idea of dating while pregnant has earned them a bit of snark. You straight people really are something else," tweeted gay comedian Dave Rubin.
While some of the on-air dates know about the pregnancies, most of the men have at least one awkward deer-in-the-camera-lights moment when the subject comes up.
"About two months into my pregnancy I noticed that he posted he was in a relationship with somebody else on Facebook," she said in a recent telephone interview.
It's also the subject that generated a gross-out factor among some on social media.
Among online dating options are a few sites promoting pregnant sex, hookups and even one offering "pregnant naughty chat." Dating wasn't about sex for Melissa Meister, a model-turned-stylist in Los Angeles.
Divorced, she attempted to have a baby on her own through a donor when she and her boyfriend of three years began trying together, and voila!
"I was kind of hesitant at first, you know, considering the whole pregnant thing," said the 30-year-old. Nail technician Megan Aballi, 28, of Orange County, Calif., gets a romantic kiss or two from an old flame while out and about during her pregnancy on the show. "I definitely don't have sex on the show and that's not the point of dating," Aballi said.
But is dating while pregnant really all that wacky?
In a recent Associated Press-WE tv poll, 23 percent of men said they would consider starting a relationship with a woman who is pregnant.
