  • Open Heart OTP of the Week: Dylan & Wes

    Posted on 03/04/2015 by TeenNickBlogger

    It's no mystery (*ba dum tsh*) that Dylan's love life on Open Heart has taken a backseat to her investigation. And TBH, it's been a long road for #Wylan. Remember when Wes almost got fired for letting his jealousy get the best of him? Or that time Dylan had a pseudo-crush on Dr. Hud, subsequently causing aforementioned almost-firing? Yeahhhh, this 'ship is no stranger to rough seas.

    OTP: Wes & Dylan><br />
<br />But this week, all you #Wylan hopefuls get what you most rightfully deserve. Our girl Dylan truly, officially, properly reciprocated feelings for a guy who's kind of amazing. And we're so happy she did. <br />
<br /><center><img src=
    *Screeching brake noise* But you didn't think it was going to be easy, did you?!

    Wylan's first attempt at locking lips was interrupted by a video chat call from Teddy, in which he bragged about a solo-mish break-in at the metal factory lofts. Ah, and the past rears its ugly head.

    With their puckers put on hold, Dylan and Wes rushed to loft, where Dylan told Teddy to take a hike -- literally, she called the cops on him -- and made her biggest discovery yet. Finding her father's medication was a huge breakthrough, a validation that his disappearance was more than a stupid affair, and you bet Wes was right by her side. <3<3<3

    (BTW, we totally count this as part of the date.)

    OTP: Wes & Dylan

    When they got back to Dylan's apartment, she thanked Wes for his help and sealed it with a kiss. A KISS! And this wasn't a mere "It's the least I can do" kiss -- it was, without a doubt, the moment Wes and Dylan became our One True Pairing.

    But we ask you, shippers... Is Wylan made to last? Or is their complicated past an indication of their future? The floor is yours.

    Posted on 02/06/2014 by TeenNickBlogger

    Ever wonder how Jimmy is connected to Declan? Or how Miles is connected to… Fiona? Well Degrassi fans, in honor of Valentine's Day fast approaching, we decided to map out every major couple that's ever existed over thirteen seasons of the show. That's right, we dug deep into the Degrassi relationship archives to show you all of the characters who've done a little dating do-si-do!

    Now, for all you Degrassi purists out there, we couldn't count every single kiss that's ever been shared on the show. (And really, who wants to remember that one time Declan and his sister kissed, anyway?) But you'll know that Miles dated Zoe, who kissed Drew, who broke Katie's heart, who ended up with Jake, who once had a thing with Clare, who's dating Eli, who used to be with Imogen, who was in love with Fiona! Behold.

  • Degrassi: The Best First Date Episode Winner!

    Posted on 05/03/2013 by Lisa

    The winner of this week's Fan Favorite Friday poll is Sean and Emma's first date, as seen in "Friday Night." (Eclare's first date was a close second.) Watch the full episode of "Friday Night" online:

    Sean and Emma are my all-time favorite Degrassi couple, and I love getting to revisit the episode where they first got together. It's crazy to think that even a soulmate-level relationship like theirs begins with the line, "Maybe we could hang out."

    Next week, we've got another poll coming your way! Like Degrassi on Facebook so you won't miss out.

    As I'm writing this, Emma and Sean's first date (from way back in season one) is leading by a few votes. I'm surprised that Manny and Craig's first date isn't getting much support.

  • One reason to break up before college.

    Posted on 06/16/2011 by Mary

    Every year, thousands of recently graduated high school seniors face the same question: Should we break up before we head off to college?

    Eric on Undeclared is perhaps the most vivid (and funny) example of why the answer tends to be yes:

    True, not every boyfriend is as psychotically clingy as Eric and his "dreaming of you" pillow cases... but then again, I'm sure many boyfriends and girlfriends have surprised themselves with how psychotically clingy they sounded when trying to cope with hundreds of miles of distance, the specter of a thumping college hook-up scene, and their fear of the unknown.

    It's never all that popular to say so, because it's hard to hear for some couples, but a lot of colleges even go so far as to tell all their freshmen during orientation: just break up.

    The reasons why? Well, basically because the likely scenarios are: one of you cheats and feels horrible about it and takes way too long to admit it because it's so easy to hide it from so far away; you're in totally different surroundings and grow apart anyway; or you're so chained to your long-distance relationship that you don't experience all that college has to offer.

    We all know the odds are against anyone ending up with their high school bf/gf long term... but what we don't often hear is that: many of those who DID end up with their high school sweetheart took a break at some point and saw other people and figured out that they really were right for each other. AND many of those who never took that break from their high school sweetheart end up having a crisis at some point in their marriage over the fact that they've never really been apart and don't know what else is out there. Even if they're right for each other... they just don't know for sure because they've never tested it.

    Sermon over... I mostly just think Eric is hilarious. And I also think it's veddy interesting that Jason Segal seems to play variations on this lovesick boyfriend character a lot.

  • Should You Tell a Friend You Don't Like Their Bf/Gf?

    Posted on 05/05/2011 by Mary

    Alli tells Clare what she thinks of Eli on Degrassi
    Alli's nose, meet Clare's beeswax.

    This may or may not have just been some Munro-lust working its way into people's judgment about the E-Clare break-up, but this post on the Degrassi board got me thinking...

    "Who Does Alli Think She Is? Excuse me, but Eli and Alli haven't even talked this whole season, yet Alli has had such a big influence on Eli and Clare's relationship!! Like don't try and put ur 2 cents in Alli!" - Kira<3'sMunroChambers

    I know in real life, friends can get put in some pretty uncomfortable predicaments when they donate their opinions about a friend's relationship. Such as:

    1) You tell your friend that their bf/gf is bad for them; they get angry at you instead of the bf/gf... even if you're right. Sometimes because you're right -- because it's too hard to admit.
    2) Your friend complains and complains and complains about their bf/gf. They finally break up. You say things like "good riddance" and "they were never good enough for you" and "I always hated them." Then they get back together... and now you're the friend who hates their bf/gf. Oy.
    3) You tell your friend, "I don't know, the way they did that to you seems pretty manipulative/shady/whatever." Next fight your friend has with their bf/gf, they're like "Well my friend YOUR NAME HERE says that that was manipulative." Guess who gets an earful from the bf/gf next time you bump into each other?

    But... think about Alli's side of that E-Clare thing. Your best friend is in a relationship she doesn't want to be in anymore, but is having trouble ending it because she feels guilty, doesn't want to hurt him, etc. Isn't it kind of the job of a friend to say, "Hey, you need to look after yourself here"... to support your friend who's having trouble doing something difficult but necessary?

    So... what do you say when a friend is going through something with their bf/gf. Weigh in? Keep your mouth shut? How do you handle it with YOUR friends?
