Emily and Ryan's First Date Dance, 2015
The two went to Emily's house to bake cookies. "You don't watch The Bachelor and think you're going to be baking cookies on the first date, but I'm willing to do most anything for Emily," Ryan said, and his easygoing attitude about the date impressed her. The two had dinner together. Ryan talked about how he believed he needed to pursue a woman and step out of his comfort zone to win her heart, which worried Emily. She told Ryan she did not want him to see falling in love with her as a contest, he agreed with her. Later they saw a concert by the country band Gloriana and danced to "(Kissed You) Good Night". He received a rose.
