The 12 Boys of Degrassi: Connor!
Day 6 of our Degrassi boy celebration brings us to: ♥Connor♥!
Connor is trusting, accepting, and good with computers... but what does he have to show for it? An awkward encounter with LoveQueen16. *Sigh.* Do you think he'll ever meet a nice girl his own age who appreciates him -- and isn't a creepy lady from the Internet?
Connor's in the gifted class at Degrassi, but since he has Asperger's syndrome, the social stuff is a lot harder for him. Because of the way his brain works, if his friends are playing "seven minutes in heaven," he'd rather be holding the stopwatch than kissing up a storm. He doesn't really know how to talk to girls, but if he can get that figured out, he's got it made -- he's cute and super-nice, he plays basketball, and he's on the Science Olympics team. (That gets him bonus points in my book, but maybe I just have a thing for smart boys.)
Here's a clip from just after he's diagnosed with Asperger's.
He seems SO relieved to know why he is the way he is. It's like, once he knows what's going on, his life can only get better. Check out lots of other Connor moments in our Connor Playlist.
