Who Broke the Girl Code: Katie or Marisol?

Posted on Aug 24, 2011 by Mary

SPOILERS BELOW if you haven't seen "Don't Panic, pt. 1".

I think it's pretty uncontroversial to say that the Girl Code of Honor proscribes that no two best girl friends of the straight persuasion think it's a good idea to "ruin their friendship over a boy." Boys should not come between besties, right? This is a truth.

But I have a question.

Say one best friend LIKElikes a guy, like reallyreallylikes him, and he demonstrably LIKElikes her back, as in he has asked her out and/or made a move type thing. But say the other best friend -- who's been through thick and thin with the first best friend since like kindergarten -- likes him, too, like a reallyreally lot, and she liked him first, even though he doesn't like her back... what then?

If you go for the guy when you KNOW your best friend likes him (like Katie did), are you sacrificing your best friendship for a boy?

Or if you forbid your best friend from being with a guy she reallyreally likes and who reallyreally likes her back (like Marisol did)... are you sacrificing your best friendship for a boy?

Which girl is the one "letting a boy come between" them?
