Matt said Michelle made him feel comfortable, as if they had known each other for years already. He quickly came to believe Michelle embodies all of the qualities he's looking for in a future wife.
Michelle has since struggled to feel wanted and desired by Matt given she must sit back and watch him show affection to other bachelorettes; however, she remains optimistic that he could be The One for her.
Michelle promised Matt that she's "100 percent committed" to him, and she told the cameras she was "fully invested" in their relationship before hometown dates.
