    Like those bubs’ll ever find love.

    I’m guessing none of them got invited to the wedding…

    Ah, the memories from childhood….Michael did marry Deanna and Gordon and all those other school chums …laughing like donkeys…were indeed his friends throughout adult life. These types of embarrassing situations, horrible as they seem at the time, will increase their bonds as they age. They will all be laughing together in their 80’s at some senior’s centre in Smalltown, Canada.

    Yes. Just like I asked a girl but she wanted someone else. Of course in one day everyone knew.

    Actually Gordon (with his wife Tracy) was the one who stood up for Mike & Deanna at their first (secret) wedding.

    re: night-gaunt

    depends on the generation. I don’t doubt Boomer girls were more mature at that age.

    GenX girls by comparison were trained in several doctrines that set them up to fail, most notably “no consequences to actions.”

    Ah the “joys” of being the first one to be caught liking someone of the opposite sex.

    Jealousy deflected into humor.

    I think this is the sort of thing kids need to work out among themselves without adult intervention. A lot of ‘trauma’ is actually manufactured by ‘experts’.

    It happens all the time. As a teacher, I can’t tell you how many times I get emails/calls because a child didn’t do their homework or got in trouble at school and they want me to forgo the consequence because they might feel bad about it.

    However, it is still true that girls tend to be more mature than boys, regardless of the change in parents’ thinking.
