The 25-year-old Nashville native says to viewers in the clip, “I am here initially because my mom did sign me up for this, but in the end, I did make the decision that this was something that I wanted to go through with.

When Domynique calls her mother in the confessional, she asks her why she didn’t like her daughter’s prior dates. Domynique will marry Mackinley in the future season when they meet at the altar.

Dom’s mother comments, “I feel like you were ready for a relationship and they absolutely weren’t.” You, people, would choose someone for her who wasn’t in her comfort zone, in my opinion.

For her part, the reality star acknowledges, “I simply don’t feel like I have had the best luck.” I don’t believe I made the correct choices. What better way to avoid that, Domynique asks, than to enter a process like getting married knowing you’re going to do it? It just feels like there’s a lack of commitment or perhaps a fear of commitment.

Despite not having had many substantial long-term relationships, she is convinced that she is prepared for marriage, according to Dom’s Lifetime biography. The official description continues, “When she does date, it is with the purpose of settling down and finding something meaningful. Unfortunately, the bar scene and dating apps are not working out for her because she doubts she will find her ideal match there.”
