The Bachelor 2011 Spoilers: Brad Womack Explains Why He Didn’t Kiss Emily Maynard

News, Spoilers

In a recent column, Brad Womack explained why he didn’t feel comfortable kissing Emily Maynard.

“I want to explain why I didn’t kiss Emily while sitting on her couch. It’s no secret that I’m brand new to a lot of this. I’ve never dated a woman with a daughter before so I don’t know proper etiquette in that situation,” Womack wrote on his column.

While Womack says his hesitance to show Emily affection was out of regard for her daughter Ricki, he insists he did actually want to kiss the 24-year-old children’s hospital event planner and never felt otherwise.

“All I know is this, I wanted to kiss Emily every second I was around her, but my very first concern was showing her daughter respect (as well as Emily). I realize it makes me look like a weird and awkward guy around Emily, but that’s anything but the case. Again, my first concern was her daughter,” he said.
