Caroline Forbes: “Why didn't he go for me? How come the guys that I want never want me? I'm inappropriate, always say the wrong thing and Elena always says the right thing. She doesn't even try, and he just picks her. And she's always the one that everyone picks. For everything. And I try so hard and I'm never the one...”
You see there are two types of girls – one that tries and works so hard to get to the top and get what she wants and then there’s sunshine Barbie, one who doesn’t have to try at all, everything goes her way.
Blair Waldorf: [Blair referring to Serena to her Yale interviewer] “Well I'm aware that I lack some people's easy grace with strangers, and I don't exactly make you feel you've known me forever even though we just met. When I laugh you might not smile just that the coquettish sound of it and I may not be spontaneous or delightful or full of surprises and my hair may not sparkle when it catches the light! Everything worth knowing about me is in that folder. I made sure of it.”
Let’s face it, I am not Sunshine Barbie, I will never turn heads in my sweats and pony tailed hair, I will never get a guy to like me without making the first move, I will never carry a good first-time conversation with my boyfriend’s mom or sister, I’m not good with kids and I’m not good with parents. I don’t sing at all, I’m not into sports and I suck at making jokes. Basically, I think that naturally, I’m not at all interesting.
I guess what would suck more than being the “other girl” is being Caroline and Blair – being best friends with Little Miss Perfect with whom hanging out seems like a competition for attention. Plus it must totally suck for them because they have this guy in their lives who truly makes them feel special but then at one time this guy was head over feet in love with Sunshine Barbie.
Brooke Davis: “just tell me, why me this time, why not Peyton?”
Guys, when your girl asks you, “What makes me different?” or “What makes me special?” make sure you give them the right answer = tell her she was never just a second choice, that she was never just the next best thing. Tell her all about the little things they do that make you smile and go as far as quoting B.O.B. and say that all the beautiful girls in the world (mention names of people she’s insecure of if you like) have NOTHING on her; all of this while looking into her eyes. Cheesy but heads up, there is a wrong answer SO you wouldn’t wanna kill her self esteem would you?
