10 Thoughts We Had About The Whole Rory-Aaron-David Thing
Published: 19 January 2018
After a chance meeting in France, low and behold Aaron’s ex turns up in Erinsborough of all places. Coincidence? We think not. His presence has pushed happy couple Aaron and David to breaking point. Here’s what we’ve been discussing around the watercooler.
1. On the Paris meeting
Rory showed up unannounced on Aaron’s door. Aaron had nothing to hide, so why hide it?
2. On David’s proposal
If Aaron had said no because it was super cringe, we could understand, but he seemed to say no because Rory walked past, and that’s super suss.
3. On Rory going to David for back treatment
This whole thing was icky. He actually went to David knowing full well David is Aaron’s bf, pretended he didn’t know Aaron, and then asked all these personal questions about them. Creep-o.
4. On Rory’s discomfort with dishonesty
Liar! That zen-yoga-namaste-I-don’t-like-lying stuff is all crap. He seeks David out so he can lie to him about Aaron all the time.
5. On Aaron saying Paris was a “non-event”
Then why can’t you tell David about it?
6. On Aaron’s deceit
He has ignored Rory in public while with David, asked Rory to lie for him, and then when David found out they knew each other, still Aaron doesn’t tell him about Paris. Maybe you lying to yourself, bro.
7. On Aaron’s infantilisation of David
Aaron claims the reason for his deceit is because this is David’s first relationship and he doesn’t want him to be insecure. A) you’re making him feel insecure and B) he’s a grown man, don’t molly coddle him and C) lying doesn’t foster trust in a relationship, dumbo.
8. On David’s belief that you never get over your first love
Many people fall in love for the first time in Year 10 with troubled teens who are bad for us, treat us like crap, and never amount to anything. We sure as hell get over that, David.
9. On Rory’s flirting
“You were always so good with your hands” Seriously? Outrageous. No one says that to their ex unless they’re trying to get it on with them.
10. On Rory’s innocent act
Oh no! My dance troupe is gonna fall apart if you don’t put on these sparkly shorts and dance for me? Puh-lease. This guy is playing the long game.
