Why Erich Schwer Is A Good Match For Bachelorette Gabby Windey

On the bachelorette season 19, Gabby Windey has started to fall for Erich Schwer, and he might just be her perfect match. Erich, a 29-year-old real estate analyst from Bedminster, New Jersey, made a great first impression on Gabby and her co-bachelorette Rachel when he asked them to help tie his tie as he entered the limo. Gabby was able to do it, and they all laughed as she completed the task.

Later that night, Gabby and Erich spent some alone time together. They were laughing and joking among themselves. He then asked if he could kiss her, and she gave him one of only two kisses that night. In his confessional, Erich said he was on cloud nine.

On Erich and Gabby’s one-on-one date, they were joined by Gabby’s beloved grandfather, John. Erich greeted her with a big hug. In her confessional, Gabby said she knew it was early, but she thought it would be nice to see how Erich interacted with his family. First, they participated in an intention-setting ceremony where they expressed their hopes for their trip. After that, they went bowling, and Gabby said Erich was up to the occasion and really easy to be around. After these activities, Grandpa John left the date, and Gabby and Erich had dinner alone, during which they discussed their families and their bond deepened. Erich and Gabby have also had plenty of lighthearted moments so far, and they seem to really get each other’s sense of humor. He could be her ideal partner.

Erich and Gabby make each other laugh

Before the bachelorette season 19 began, Gabby had said she was looking for a man with a great sense of humor, which Gabby is also known for. The first night they met, Erich and Gabby had some fun banter. He asked her what she thought of her signature mullet hairstyle. She said it sounded good, and she joked that she usually wasn’t that nice all the time, so he shouldn’t get used to it. When Erich told her she looked “absolutely stunning,” she laughed that she had fake hair and a fake tan, but he “I can’t say because the boys are stupid.” He made her laugh loudly when he joked that her mullet was fake too. In her confessional, Gabby said she really liked Erich because it was so easy with him. She said they made each other laugh and she could really be herself with him. Erich and Gabby also had a great time on the group date in Bruges, Belgium, when they ate whipped cream straight from a machine at a waffle restaurant. Then they and the other men played a game in which the loser was slapped across the face with a raw fish.

Gabby opened up to Erich

Gabby said it takes her longer to open up to people than to others. During their Bachelorette Dinner one-on-one, Erich told Gabby that his parents have deep love and are kindred spirits and a team, and that’s what he wants. Gabby opened up to Erich about her estranged mother and told him that she may never know what it’s like to have a mother’s love. After saying that, she got emotional and excused herself from the table. She told the Bachelorette members of the production that she feared she was too broken for anyone to love her and that Erich might decide she was not for him. She describes herself as messy and complicated. In her confessional, she admitted that she was afraid of Erich and what they might have. However, she said acknowledging it is the first step in moving forward. When she came back to Erich, she thanked him for everything and for being there. She explained to him that she was scared if she was the right person to be the Bachelorette. Gabby felt comfortable enough to bare her soul to Erich, and that’s what she needs in a partner.

Erich accepts Gabby for who she is

As Gabby talked more about herself with Erich during their date, he told her that it seemed like due to her situation, she had become really in tune with her emotions. He said her different upbringing shaped her as a unique person. Gabby agreed and said she was really proud of the woman she is today. She said when she loves people, she loves them so deeply it hurts. Erich told Gabby that he really loved her and wanted them to be open and honest with each other. He said he had no expectations of her, but he wanted her to be honest because that was the reason they were both there. Gabby then sat on his lap and kissed him on the cheek and neck, then they kissed on the lips. In her confessional, she said the night was a turning point for her in her growth and allowed her to connect with Erich in ways she never expected. Gabby offered him her rose and he accepted it. Gabby said the day with Erich was one of the best she’s had so far. She said her feelings for him grew deeper every time she saw him, and it was scary. Gabby said, “I’m the imperfect bachelor, but I think in some people’s eyes that’s going to mean perfect. And Erich, tonight, really, really, really, really, really, let me lean into that and figure it out and be myself. Because I would give anything to be loved by someone like Erich.” He allows her to be herself and fully accepts her, which is exactly what she needs.
