  1. ” I don’t know what to do with my life but will get very upset if my partner shares any ideas or advice that could help me fix this or any problem”
    I picked this answer because it’s very accurate, but it’s also very rude!

  2. I was certain my *actual ortho goddess* ortho resident fiancee would get Callie but somehow we both got Spencer from South of Nowhere — which also works because that show (specifically Ashley) was her root

  3. Got Willow,yes!even if i didnt pick the “Blood sucking fiend” Quote but choosing tara as my girl.

    Speaking of that: cant figure out some quotes:

    The tv series quotes:1 buffy (willow)
    6 sex and the city
    ( samantha)
    8.OG l word ( bette)
    7 maybe ally mc beal

    the others i dont know , anyone,help??

    Im sympathetic to britney, esp in the last 10 years,but only liked 4 songs,as Im more of a indie rock girl and for popmusic prefered other women than brit: toxic , slave ,circus, and not a girl,not yet a woman .
    the latter is missing in the lyric quote identify as its really the most iconic. Was quoted in hbo girls / in dunham interviews
