“I was taken for a ride for four years, and I don’t want to be stuffed around anymore.”
Last week’s episode of Farmer Wants a Wife left Liz feeling a bit sour, and tonight she had the chat with Nick that would make or break their potential future.
“I’m a bit pissed off with Nick,” she said in an interview, talking about the private dinner they shared before Nick told the group of four women that he didn’t want to send anyone home.
“He’s not as fussed about kids as he indicated to me before,” she said.
For Liz, who is 34 and ready to start a family, she’s not interested in spending time with someone who doesn’t want children.
So the marriage celebrant asked her farmer point blank. “Straight up, do you want to have kids?”

“So you’re foot in the door and foot out?”
Escaping going home the night before didn’t leave Liz feeling happy. Farmer Nick said she seemed “pensive”, but we’d say she seemed more pissed off.
He approached her after the group did some mulching around the grapevines.
“You seem a bit pensive,” he said.
“I probably was a bit pensive,” she answered. “It’s really hard when people come back from chatting with you and saying stuff that is concerning for me, especially the whole wanting kids thing.
“Straight up, do you want to have kids?” she asked.
Winning the award for the most non-committal answer ever, “Ya I would love to have some children,” Nick said. “I would love to pass this down to somebody.”

Liz sensed his uncertainty. “So you’re mainly a foot in the door, but you’ve still got a foot out,” she asked, seeking clarification.
“No, I don’t know how to tell you I’m 100 percent OK with the idea of having kids in the right situation with the right woman.”
“OK” with having kids might not quite be the commitment Liz was looking for, but it was enough to make her smile.

“That’s so romantic”
Farmer Nick then accidentally revealed that he doesn’t spend much time with other humans by awkwardly trying to convince her how OK he was with having kids.
“I’m not an ‘I don’t want kids guy’. I’m not a super ‘Iwant kids guy’,” he said.
“I’m about making my future mate happy. And if that means providing her with some sperm and having babies great.”
“That’s so romantic. I can’t believe no one has snapped you up already.”
We couldn’t have said it better.
