I haven’t had a chance to catch up for about two weeks (we are cheap and don’t have DVR, lol) but both Fiance and I are sort of addicted to this show. We feel ridiculous being in our 20s and watching it, but hey. And he would die if he knew I told people this. haha.

Okay, yes I like Ricky and Amy together. They are a couple I am “rooting for.” I don’t think Ben and Adrian were meant to be together…at all. And her trying to get pregnant again is so not the right thing to do. It’s the exact opposite really. They never should have gotten married. I think Ricky and Amy are more “legitimate” because they didn’t get together because of John, but rather because it worked out that way, whereas Ben and Adrian are more the “we got knocked up so we’re together.”

Other: I don’t like Ashley.

Lol, what do you think? I don’t get to talk about this very much either. haha.

I think Amy and Ben should be with each other. I also think Adrian is creepy as hell and is going to end up on meds or in the hospital.

Ha ha – I had to laugh as I am watching this show right now! I guess I’m behind as I’m only watching the episode right after Ben and Adrine get married. I’m way to old to like this show, but for some reason I do.

I like Amy and Ricky together.  I just love that Ricky is trying to be a better person for her and John.  Adrian is really creeping me out.  I think Ben is being really childish about leaving her.  I mean, I know he’s a teenager but he still took the “for better or worse” vows and at the first sign of problems, he ran.  So cowardly.

Adrian is really getting creepy, for sure. And Ben has always sort of been the “easy way out” kind of guy. I mean, he sort of took the “easy way” as far as just going ahead and marrying what could have been his baby’s mother, even though his heart wasn’t in it. It was easier to just do it rather than face the other things. I don’t really like his character…at all.

@flutterbi: Lol we probably all are, for all intents and purposes. πŸ˜‰ I feel like a creepy old lady sometimes saying I watch it. Haha

I hate how much lip gloss Adrian wears.

My 2 cents:

Why do the guidance counselors always WAY overstep their boundaries? I thought they were mainly supposed to give you advice on school/college. Did your counselors in high school get involved in your personal life at all?

I definitely think Amy and Ashley’s parents should get together and stay that way. The mom is so fickle though, much like Grace and Amy and Ashley and Madison…I think they should develop the female characters a little more! At least make them less predictable/one-dimensional. I realize they’re young, but come on!

I have a weak spot for ABC Fam shows. The funniest thing about Secret Life to me is the dialog formula and how it ALWAYS repeats like this:

A: I was wondering if you’d want to go shopping with me?

B: why would I want to go shopping with you? shopping with you is the last place I want to go!

or

A: It really bothers me when you don’t shut the door all the way after coming up the stairs.

B: why can’t we talk about anything other than me not shutting the door? Shutting the door is such a silly thing to argue about!

Those are bad examples, but watch the show and look out for it if you haven’t before. My Darling Husband and I always crack up because without fail, every conversation repeats and repeats and repeats the same words over and over!

I am also proud of Ricky for saying NO on the most recent episode! Less proud of Ben and Adrian.

I love this show and Fiance always makes fun of me for it… i’m 25 and he thinks I should like shows that aren’t about high school…

Anyway, I love Ricky and Amy together and I really hope they don’t have anything mess that up!

Ben and Adrian rushed into things for the wrong reasons and now they are dealing with the consequences but they are going about it the wrong way… I really hope Adrian doesn’t end up pregnant again.

I don’t know what’s going on with Grace, but she needs to stop sleeping with everyone and poor Jack needs to just get over her.

Ashley bothers me, I feel like something shady is happening in Florida and she doesn’t want to tell anyone…

Does anyone watch Switched at Birth after secret life??

@pinkpaperbride: haha I’ve noticed the dialog too, it sounds like a 6th grader wrote it at some points… Sometimes I just say “OK I GET IT!”  That said, I did have counselors who did get involved in personal life when need be… I think the counselor just wants to help and she’s not sure how to…

I am 33 and I love this show!  I watch it every week.  grace’s first boyfriend is Jack – I don’t like the way he treated Madison at all.  I really like her.  

Grace’s brother is Tom and he gets on my nerves a little bit.  Di you see the way his first girlfriend came dressed into his office!  

I think Ricky and Amy are great together and i loved how he turned down Carlee in the admissions office but I think that is going to be the next big drama issue since he did sleep with her while Amy was away with the band program after he told her he hadn’t slept with anyone.

I used to like Ben but lately he is just annoying!  But I guess that is what happens when a 17 year old hasn’t grown up enough to have a baby.  

Adrian is just plain crazy!!  She is planning something and I really hope it backfires on her.  I can see her getting put into a mental institution or something similar.  Where have her parents been thest two edisodes??  I understand she got married and moved out but still her parents should be involved in all this.

Well I can’t wait to see the next episode!

Haha I love that other people watch this too! My Fiance is always making fun of me for watching this.  He thinks it’s awful but it is so addicting.

I too am rooting for Amy and Ricky.  I think out of everyone, their relationship is the best.

Adrian is definitely getting creepy and I don’t think she and Ben should have ever gotten married let alone be getting pregnant again!
