What an emotional week. I tried to go a whole season without crying but who was I kidding! The emotions this week were as raw and genuine as they get.

The week started off with my first one on one date with Dylan. At the last rose ceremony, Dylan had alluded to me that he had gone through some family struggles in his life. I could sense that this was something deep so I felt it only right to give Dylan the privacy of a one-on-one date to share his story with me if he wanted to.

I have to say this was one of the best weeks of dating I could ever ask for.

It was my first time in Santa Barbara, and we stayed at the beautiful Bacara – right on the beach. My first date was with Nick. Obviously, he had made a great impression on me the very first night, and I wanted to get to know him more. Nick had voiced his skepticism about this whole process, so I thought he would enjoy a simple and very realistic date like bike riding and hiking.

As I write my first Bachelorette blog, I can't help but remember that I only packed for a couple of weeks for last season, thinking I probably wouldn't even make it throughout the first night. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that I would become the Bachelorette. It really wasn't until I arrived in Los Angeles that it actually set in. All I could feel was excitement and gratitude to be the lucky girl, who had 25 of the most eligible men making the sacrifice to put heir lives on hold all in the name of love.

Leading up to that first night, I needed the advice of the person I trust most in this world, my sister Rachel. Despite being very different from one another, we are incredibly close. I was so thankful she made the trip from San Diego to help me get ready. Although we chose the gold dress, I ended up changing my mind and I was so happy that I did because I felt so beautiful in that gown. I can't thank my Shishy (that's my nickname for her) enough for helping me get ready to meet the men. She got married to the love of her life about a year ago and I can only hope to find my perfect person just like she did.

Driving up to the mansion, me heart was pounding! All I could think was that in the next few minutes I could be meeting the love of my life. What an exciting but nerve-wracking feeling! It's embarrassing to admit, but I really, really hoped my future husband would be there. I was almost afraid to believe it.

The Bachelorette: Andi's Search for Love Begins – But Not Without Drama

Originally posted 05/19/2014 11:00PM

Time to break out the bouquet of roses and pop some champagne – The Bachelorette is back, and if the premiere is any indication, Chris Harrison's promise of "the most dramatic season ever" may be accurate.

On this season's quest to find love is Andi Dorfman, the Atlanta-based assistant district attorney who famously dumped Juan Pablo Galavis after a "nightmare" fantasy suite date (and his overuse of the phrase "It's okay") on the latest installment of The Bachelor. This time around, Dorfman, 27, is faced with 25 eligible men – and they pulled out all the stops during their first night at the mansion.

Bachelorette Andi Dorfman Was 'Devastated' by Eric Hill's Death

Originally posted 05/13/2014 07:45PM

With the premiere of The Bachelorette just days away, Andi Dorfman spoke to PEOPLE about the tragic death of contestant Eric Hill, who was killed in a paragliding accident April 23, after he had left the show.

"When I heard the news, I was devastated," says Dorfman, who also reached out privately to Hill's family. "Shock, devastation, grief. It's something you never could have predicted [or] expected."

Hill, who will not be edited out of episodes, "was part of our family," Dorfman says. "And I had just seen him. He was a member of our cast and we had an inherent bond. The [other contestants] shared that bond too. It was shocking and devastating to all of us and it's still a tough thing that we're going through."
