  • Are you the Clare friend or the Jenna friend?

    Posted on 03/04/2010 by Mary

    When your friend wants to get back together with the guy who fwded her naked pics and lied about being a virgin but she still loves him and he maybe still loves her and it's all very confusing and she wants advice (tonight, Degrassi, 10p et), are you the Clare friend, or the Jenna friend?

    As in, are you the one who gives the reality checks and solid advice and tries to keep your friends out of trouble, but sometimes might come off as judgy?

    Or the one who cheerleads for romantic ideals and experimenting with life and not being judgy, but sometimes maybe fails to avoid trouble?

    Or somethin' else entirely?

    Judge yourself in the comments...

  • Could you live with your best friend?

    Let's talk about the "Hyde Moves In" episode of That '70s Show, and the one immediately after it, "The Good Son," where Eric starts to get annoyed at having Hyde at his house all the time.

    Let's consider the facts:

    * Hyde's mom ran away with a trucker, so he has nowhere else to go.
    * Hyde does lots of Eric's chores for him.
    * Hyde lives in the basement, so it's not like Eric has to share a room with him. (btw, this totally reminds me of when Manny lived in Emma's basement on Degrassi -- what's up with TeenNick and basement friends? )

    If you were in Eric's situation, do you think you could handle having your best friend around all the time? Or would it completely ruin the friendship?

  • Tina's got a secret... but not for long.

    "You're my boyfriend. We don't keep secrets from each other."That's something Holly says in the "I've Got a Secret" episode of What I Like About You, and it brings up an important relationship question -- are boyfriends and girlfriends exempt from the secret-keeping rules?

    When Tina realizes she might possibly have feelings for Gary, she tells Holly, but begs her to keep it a secret.

    A few minutes later, this conversation takes place:

    HOLLY: "Tina told me not to tell anyone."
    VINCE: "But you just told me."
    HOLLY: "Yeah, but you're not 'anyone' -- you're my boyfriend. We don't keep secrets from each other, because we have that intimate bond."

    If you were in that situation, and you were sworn to secrecy about a friend's crush, would you keep it a secret? Or would you tell your bf/gf, because of the "intimate bond" thing?
