I know some of us were saying how we wished he would have given her more of a reason than “because.” But when I think about it, would it have made much of a difference? Would his reason for liking her have made Rae care less about the stares and what people were saying? I also think he was caught off guard by the whole situation cause he initially thought she was upset with him for getting drunk. Maybe, he also thought that all of this time it was obvious why he liked her. I don’t think Finn knew just how deep her insecurities were until this moment. Hopefully the next time he has the opportunity to give her real reasons, he won’t let the fact that he “isn’t good with words or speaking” get in the way of telling her.
