    I never dated a girl who still didn’t have time for her friends. I mean, who would she go to the restroom with?

    Of course this isn’t just teenage girls. Try being a single guy when your friends are all in couples! ! Couples want to go out with other couples. I know a lady who, when she got divorced, suddenly lost half her friends, because they preferred the company of other couples. Probably so the women could chat about women’s things and the guys could chat about sports; if there is only a guy or a girl and not a couple, then BOTH people in the couple have to find topics acceptable to everyone – or at least feign interest when you’d rather just be at home watching a movie. (I remember this same woman being in a car with me and two other women; It struck me that the women were ALL talking at once… none cared whether anyone was listening, as long as they got a chance to “express” themselves. So when couples go out they can separate into gender groups and be happier doing their thing instead of being truly sociable to everyone.

    You know. Sometimes you just have to let it go and have a pint of ice-cream.

    Telling her she’ll start being friends again because she broke up with the guy is the worst possible thing to say. She should have apologized, told her she missed their friendship, realized she’d been rude, etc.

    Once again a learning opportunity has been presented to Elizabeth. Don’t take this as a snub Elizabeth, rather as an opportunity to learn to balance, work, in this case school, along with friends and family into a full life. It won’t be too long before you will be doing so on your own.

    Now she’ll get a taste of her own medicine! Maybe learn something.

    @Uncle Kenny – You may have a point…girls tend to go to the rest room in groups?

    I met my husband when we were in college. I was a sophomore, and he was a freshman. I already had my circle of girlfriends and activities we liked to do. He wanted me to spend all of my free time with him. I told him, no way! He had to accept me as I was or find a new girlfriend. We were happily married for 38 years, spending our lives separately and together. When he died, I still had that “separate” part of my life going forward.

    Well since you’re diving in the dumps, Liz, you can’t find better than Morton Goldthwait of FoxTrot fame. I’m sure he can pried away from Paige. ;-p

    The interesting aspect of Dawn having a boyfriend is that she is the stark contrast to her brother Brian, who would only date Asian girls. They are going to a school where the only Asian girl is his sister, so Brian does not date until years later. Dawn, on the other hand, had no problem with dating guys from other races, which is what she is doing. We will never see the guy or get his name to confirm.

    Lynn Johnston, on the other other hand, had a real problem with mixed race marriages, so when we finally see Dawn with a guy, she draws the guy way back in the background so we cannot see what he looks like.

    I am sooo glad I’m long since past that age. Mind you I wouldn’t mind having their strength, flexibility, stamina, and healthy joints but it’s jus not worth the emotional angst.

    There is no reason why she couldn’t have spent time with both Anthony and Dawn. Perhaps even double dated

    “Threesome?” “WHAT?!?” “What?” . . . sorry, that was a “Stewie Family Guy Joke.”
