“Boys are Temporary,
Girlfriend S are forever!”
Have you ever had a crush on a cutie in your class only to find out that you’re not the only one in your clique who has feelings for him — you’re BFF likes him, too?!
If so, you know just how awkward and heartbreaking that situation can be. And you’re not alone. Because Sabrina Carpenter’s been there ... on-screen, that is! “I don’t think I’ve ever liked the same guy as a friend in real life, but my character has on Girl Meets World and believe me, it’s not a situation I’d ever want to find myself in,” she exclusively tells J-14.
“Love triangles can ruin friendships!”
While Maya and Riley’s friendship luckily stayed intact on GMW after they both found themselves crushing on Lucas, Sabrina says that doesn’t always happen. “I love that on our particular show, the girls have always put their friendship first,” she shares. “But most of the

triangles, someone ends up getting hurt and sadly, sometimes choosing to follow your heart can ruin and even break up a friendship.”
“You’ll have lots of different crushes!”
Because of this, Sabrina says a boy is never worth losing a friend over — no matter how sweet he may be. “When you’re growing up, you’ll have lots of different crushes and most of the those people will only be in your life for that period of time,” she explains. “Therefore, if you let your crush come between you and your best friend, you’ll regret it later on.” So how can you keep that from happening if you find yourself in a love triangle with your BFF? “It’s one of those things where you have to remember in the back of your mind that boys are temporary — especially when you’re in middle school or high school — and your girlfriends are forever,” she opens up. “The relationships you have with your girlfriends are special — it’s important to protect them.”
“You need to put your girls first!”
And even though putting your feelings aside in order to avoid drama may sound hard, Sabrina promises that it’ll be worth it.
“When you’re in a hard situation like that, you learn who your true friends are and show what kind of friend you are, too,” she opens up. “I mean, there’s really no rules to life, the dating game or to the friendship game — you have to make your own rules. And hopefully, the rules you come up with include putting your girls first.” We couldn’t agree with you more, Sabrina!
“I’m lucky to have a great group of girls that I can call my friends,” Sabrina tells J-14.
“Boys will come and go!”
