So I know a lot of people on here share what it’s like watching GMW with their parents or their younger siblings or other family members, so I thought I’d talk about my 3 younger cousins who are all girls and who love GMW. They’re 10, 8 & 6.
The 10 year old isn’t as into it as her sisters, but she loves Rucas, and she even “married” them before when she was playing with her Barbies. Because they had a blonde boy doll and a brunette girl doll, that the 8 year old had declared was Riley & Lucas, and so one day she and the 8 year old had a whole wedding for them and everything. It was so cute.
The 8 year old loves Rucas & Joshaya, and she really loves Josh. Her favorite episode is Home for the Holidays because she absolutely loves “two grown men in a girl’s bedroom window” and when Josh goes “it’s a surprise!” to Alan. Everytime someone brings up GMW, she randomly will go “it’s a surprise!” And it’s so cute. And she also now loves the whole “shnoop-aloop” thing from Bear and she’s been doing it/saying it ever since the episode came out. (Her mom literally had to bribe her with ice cream not to do it to her grandmother when she came over for a visit. Lol). And she’s also convinced if he and Maya don’t work out that she can marry Josh. She also loves doing “ha-hurr” and going “HA!” like Farkle. She’s basically the kid that just quotes the show all the time.
And then the 6 year old, the one that I’m so proud of, because this kid is a Rilaya shipper!! I swear to you, and I did not influence this at all! See one day, back when I think New Years first came out, we were all talking about the love triangle and I asked them who they wanted Lucas to be with, and of course the 10 & 8 year old both said Riley and started going on about Rucas. But the 6 year old was being very quiet, and not contributing to the conversation at all. So I assumed it was maybe because she shipped Lucaya. So I was like “what’s wrong, do you want Lucas to be with Maya?” And she shook her head and was like “No, I want Riley to be with Maya.” And let me tell you, in that moment, I’d never been more proud of a 6 year old in my life. And ever since then I’ve talked with her about Rilaya all the time and she is totally convinced Riley and Maya are going to marry each other, as she puts it, “just like Auggie said”.
I love these kids man, if you want to hear anymore about them, let me know y'all.
As much as I love Girls Meets World, the amount of relationship drama they went through these past 2 season is more than what I went through my entire 4 years of high school combined. And a good chunk of this shit started in middle school. Like WTF when I was in middle school all the kids were too stupid to even think about relationships and only focused on buying Hollister shit and playing fucking FarmVille. 😂
