What a rush it is to finally see our first episode after all the anticipation. This is the beginning of a story of six real life friends -- our ups and downs, the trials and tribulations, and just a little thing called life’s journey. We are lucky to live in the amazing city of Dallas, Texas (our seventh and strongest character).
I like the direction of the first episode, because it highlights those seven characters. Each of us is almost completely different than the next, ranging from our ages, families, styles, and orientations. Beyond those differences is friendship, and though we may all be a little different, we are real friends and stand beside one another through it all.
Tara is like a sister. Glen and Drew are like brothers. Courtney Kerr is my heart and soul -- my best friend. The bond the she and I have is one that words cannot describe. Neill Skylar comes back into my life after having known each other for five years. She’s always been mysterious to me, but we never lost touch.
Either you marry Courtney or she is going to be a pain in your hide for the rest of your life. I think she''s awful and I'd never date a guy that had a pitbull like her lurking around waiting to attack. Have fun with that...
Perhaps you should listen to what Courtney is really saying in her messages to you. Grow up dude! The way you describe Courtney is the same way a man would describe his wife. No wonder she is nuts about you. You lead her on. Cut it out!
Having a great male BFF myself, I relate a lot to you, and your relationship to Courtney. The difference? I have never treated my guy's female friends like she treated your female friends. As her friend, you should want the best for her, and that includes not having her look so pathetic on TV! Seriously, she comes off as completely sad. And as I'm sure deep down you know, she's never going to find real happiness, love, marriage, and family with the attitude she has... Because frankly, guys have too many options to fight for what may or may not be under her shell.
Courtney's treatment of Neill is not protective - it's atrocious. I could never imagine "welcoming" a newcomer with that degree of judgmental aspersion. Especially a nice girl like Neill. For you to excuse Courtney is enabling her. However, I could see how this behavior might fluff your ego.
Matt, Courtney obviously has feelings for you. And the way you lead her on I would think you have feelings for her too. She only treated Neill that way because she was jealous. I think you should stop acting like your 21 and start acting you age! You are a player. If you want to have a family to call your own some day you need to wake/grow up. Otherwise you will end up alone in life, watching all your friends moving on while you are stuck by yourself.
If you really are Courtney's friend, stop keeping her on leash as your personal audience and ego-booster. You may think you're being nice, but you're being weak. Cut the cord, stand on your own 2 feet, and open your eyes: she's into you, you know it and you feed off it. Find a real girlfriend to share your intimacies-- that's what grown-ups do. Flirting with Courtney, telling her how she's your BFF, heart and soul, is just plain wrong and manipulative. I'm sorry you got your heart broken, but don't use Courtney as your female attention security blanket. You've created an addict! and you need to cold turkey her, for her good, so she can move on and find that great husband, if not for yours.
Listen: Courtney didn't react to Neill the way she did because she's being protective of you. I'm a woman and I'm telling you Courtney is pining for you. Neill is a young, beautiful woman and she did not have to go to dinner and sit and take Courtney's abuse. If I was her I would have told Courtney off and walked out. Who does Courtney think she is? That was ridiculous. I feel you didn't do anything to stop it because secretly her caring so much about who you are or aren'tseeing feeds your ego because you were jilted back in the day.
Courtney is your heart and soul.....Really??? But your JUST friends? What is your future wife going to think about that comment? STOP LEADING HER ON!!!!!
Dear Courtney (aka SWF) - was with you until you opened your mouth in public while hanging with people you call 'friends'. Blasting another female whose w/one of those 'friends' is so non original...and to top it off, crying later only to claim 'she has what i want'. Food for thought...try using your wit sensibly instead of blaming your own female gender for your short comings.
OMG Matt, I'm thinking you are so into yourself that you love leading Courtney on and getting her attention without any kind of obligation due to your "friend" status! BTW, she is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO JEALOUS! She wants YOUR baby! I think you LOVE it! You are cute though!
Courtney probably scared off your former fiancee'. If this is how this female behaves when you have other women around and you can't see that she is in love with you...you are fooling only yourself. She is pretending to be a "protective best friend" to salve her wounded pride. If she were just a friend she would not give a flip and find some other women to hang with instead of sticking with you. She is a security blanket for you. If you were any kind of a friend to her, you would not lead her this merry chase by inviting her with you on your evenings on the prowl. If you want to sow wild oats, do it, but don't leave her looking like a jealous, hateful sourpuss on national television. If she really wants a marriage and family she will need to do it without hanging around you and hoping that one day you will see her in a different light.
from the first episode its like ur definitely leading Courtney(which is crazy) on, u want her around but to not be in a relationship with.
Matt, There is a time, where we need to be the grown up. Just bacause you want Courtney in your life, but you don't want to be romantic with her is COMPLETELY mean. You are not being her friend, by leading her on.
Stop being selfish and be honest with yourself and Courtney.
Matt, You seem like a nice man, but you have to stop sending Courtney mixed message's , by watching it - she is just waiting.
You need to tell her , so she can move on have you as a friend , but find someone to love her and be there for her and only her.

Have watched the Dallas crew now for an episode or two and quite frankly, male or female, I think they should rename the show, "It ain't real, it's Dallas." The housewives of New Jersey may have their problems but they are 100% more real then the Dallas crew where egos' are bursting at the seams. And Matt, man up, you're a player in spite of all your protestations. Be a man, and fess up to Courtney that she needs to confront her feelings about you and move on for your sake and hers. Stop using her as your security blanket. You name is not linus.
