Why doesn’t Matt James close his eyes while kissing? After the second episode of ‘The Bachelor’, which saw the new bachelor lock lips with many ladies, viewers were quick to point out that Matt’s eyrs were open each time he kissed someone. However, it was different when he shared a kiss with the youngest contestant Serena Pitt in the January 18 episode. 

Amid all the drama that unfolded, Matt asks Serena to join him on a one-on-one date. The two head to the woods for a picnic and have a great time making cheese sandwiches while being visited by donkeys. As the date continues, Matt and Sarah are later seen on a candlelight dinner date. 

The two begin to discuss love and other intimate details about their romantic past, and when Serena asks if Matt has “ever been in love”, he says no, before explaining that he has been attracted to the women he has dated but never experienced love.

Meanwhile, Serena admits to being madly in love with her former boyfriend and how it took a toll on her emotions when it didn’t work out. However, she doesn’t shy away from telling Matt that she’s “falling for him”.

For Matt, who is always looking for a “genuine and down to earth” person, Serena comes across as a humble human and even hints that he might be falling for her too. The confrontation leads to a kiss and when they lock lips, Matt keeps his eyes closed! 

It didn’t take viewers long to notice this as they quickly surfaced on Twitter to note that Serena, in fact, may be the one for Matt as he closed his eyes while kissing her. And the rest are vigorously rallying for Serena and want to see her end up with Matt. 

One tweeted, "GUYS MATT DIDN’T HAVE HIS EYES OPEN WHEN HE KISSED SERENA P. MAYBE THIS MEANS SHE’S THE ONE #TheBachelor" Another added, "So, Matt closes his eyes while he kisses a women he’s really into more? So far Serena P got him to close them. She could be a keeper #TheBachelor "

Adding to the above tweets, another said, "You know the chemistry with Serena is real because he finally closed his eyes when he kissed for the first time this season #TheBachelor #TheBachelorABC" One social media user tweeted, "Serena P. must be The One bc @mattjames919’s eyes are closed during that kiss #TheBachelor"
