What is it about Vanessa that makes them burst into tears?! Before the waterworks start, his family expresses severe concerns about Nick getting hurt, especially because she's "his type," aka smart and mature and has brown hair, sort of like the Andis and Kaitlyns that have broken his heart in the past. Other red flags include, but are not limited to:
*When Vanessa cries while talking to his family and Nick needs to be prompted to console her.
* When she basically says that no one in her family has ever left Montreal. Normally, I'd think "Hey! Maybe Nick's up for a fun French-Canadian adventure," and then I'm reminded that this moment literally happened on their last date.
*When Vanessa repeatedly she wants to get engaged, but never really specifies that it's Nick that she wants as her betrothed.
*When she commits the cardinal sin of telling his mom she might not be 100% ready to get engaged.
All this aside, she has a touching heart-to-heart with Nick's dad, and then he cries, she cries, they hug, and it’s actually really nice. His dad is totally Team Vanessa.
