Sometimes in life we talk ourselves into believing certain things because we know, or we’re told, we’ll be “better off” that way. Take vegetables, for example–if we believe hard enough that beets are actually tasty, we’ll eat more of them, which is much better for our health than eating ice cream. We can also try to convince ourselves that something, or someone–say, a really cute guy–is bad for us in order to prevent ourselves from getting hurt…and we couldn’t help but wonder if that’s what Jenna was doing during tonight’s episode of “Awkward.”
After Matty heard that his old fling J was once in love with him, he hunted her down on campus and proclaimed the same. The disclosure was unquestionably too late, but that doesn’t mean Jenna–who has supposedly moved on–didn’t feel her heart go all aflutter upon hearing the words. And perhaps when she told new boo Jake that she was totally over the other unnamed guy she slept with, she was faking it, like when people force down leafy greens with a big “yum!” Perhaps.
