“There’s definitely a culture barrier that people don’t understand. In Latin culture, there are many words you can say to a woman to tell her that you care about her: falling in love, loving her, needing her. Those words might not have a translation in English. Te Quiero [I like you], Te Quiero Mucho [I like you a lot], Te Adoro [I adore you], Me Encantas [McDonald's translation is "I'm Loving It"]. These mean something to Latins, but they don’t mean the same to Americans. I’ve learned that “love” is used a lot in the States for everything: I love that burger, I love my shoes, I love a friend. To me, if it’s overused, it loses meaning.
Former “Bachelor” Juan Pablo Galavis told People that he still hasn’t told his girlfriend Nikki Ferrell that he loves her. The two are currently starring on VH1′s “Couples Therapy,” in which they work out the many, many issues they have with each other on national TV while he continues to be THE WORST, surprising exactly no one. Sure, they’ve been together a pretty short time to already have so many things to talk about in therapy, but Juan Pablo has already displayed an array of dismissive, commitment-phobic behaviors, like refusing to propose to Nikki on the “Bachelor” finale, actively hiding from the L word, and referring to Nikki as a “regular friend” (his words) to his daughter.

Fresh of the disastrous season finale of “The Bachelor” and his appearance on “After the Final Rose,” douchenozzle Juan Pablo Galavis is kinda backtracking on his promise that he and final rose recipient Nikki Ferrell would be conducting their relationship privately. See, he posted this YouTube video about he and Nikki’s relationship yesterday, featuring photos of the two together as a song called “Adventures In Loving You” (which I guess Juan Pablo helped write) plays over top. The video starts and ends with some text written by Juan Pablo in his trademark style (USING randomly capitalized WORDS for NO DISCERNIBLE reason), declaring finally, “Te adoro.” “Te adoro,” incase you didn’t know, is Spanish for “Everyone wants me to say that I love you, but I don’t because I’m a jackass with the emotional depth of Carrot Top’s left nutsack, so I’m saying I adore you instead, which is not the same thing, hope no one notices.” (I’m guessing the word “loving” in name of the song is just love-love not in-love love.)
Best of all, this is not the first cheesy YouTube video Juan Pablo has made about a significant other! Buzzfeed noticed that Juan Pablo made a similar video for his ex-wife/baby mama back in 2009. Check it out after the jump! [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
