    Stef just uses people who are kind and thoughtful to others. Prime targets. Good luck trying to change her by forgiving her and leading by example. Noble idea, but seems futile. But I hope I’m wrong.

    Everyone who guessed that Tiff was dragging this out to avoid having to deal with Stef, give yourself a gold star.

    (Of course, I’m still trying to figure out why Tiff needs to live in the dorms when the mansion is obviously within a short driving distance of the university.)

    Ok, this catches me by surprise … but good work Dez. I still want to know about the broken window at the mansion. And for Tiff to reciprocate Ox’s affection. And please can Luann have a decent arc for a change. IMHO the writing one with Tara bombs. But if wishes were horses I suppose ….

    That’s your “solution” Dez?

    Tiffany going all “Neville Chamberlain” to “Adolph Stef??”

    Bad idea. I think We’ve had just about enough neo-hippie “input.”

    This looks like a job for a war-time Consigliere.

    Where’s Bets?

    She’ll deal Stef.

    All Tiff needs to do tell Bets how cute Gunny looks when he’s serving her breakfast in bed at Gulag while wearing his Captain Picard PJ’s.

    Bets will throw Stef out of the dorm and use her head to open the door.

    There is a difference between forgiving and putting yourself in a position to continue being taken advantage of. There’s nothing to prevent Tiffany from forgiving Steff AND refusing to go back to rooming with her. Boundaries are healthy.

I thought she was this idealistic, everyone-has-good-points type of person, and here she is, figuring what buttons to push to ‘encourage’ Tiffany to make a decision that will move her away from essentially taking advantage of Gunther and Les…

    Dez. Forgiving Stef will not change who she is or her behavior. If you can handle Stef, then YOU be her roommate and let Tiff room with Bets. Walking naked will ensure that Kip will NOT stay in your room and take Stef to his room instead. Sorry to say but Kip likes his girls to look the way Stef does and you don’t quite fit the bill. So problem solved. You’ll have the room to yourself in your nudist heaven. Make the sacrifice for Tiff and switch roommates on her behalf so she can agree to return to the dorm.

    For the story’s sake, Tiffany should go back to the dorm. She should contact her father and tell him the whole story. Then he should secure the mansion with security cameras. Or, maybe he should sell it. He is never there, so what does he need it for?

    Dez, I see, is destined to be a battered wife. There is some behavior that is just not forgivable. Especially when the abuser neither recognize that they are abusive or tried to rein in their behavior.

    But this fits in with a pattern of behavior in Luann." Gunther abandoned Rosa in Peru because his mother was dating another man. He was violently opposed to her marriage until one day he just “forgave” her. And we never heard another word about “Angry Gunther” his opposition to her marriage or with him living with Leslie Knox. The other was during the Ann Eiffel travesty when Tiffany was hugely upset that Ann was get in between her and her father, making her life misery while claiming that Daddy was on the edge of bankruptcy. And then Tiffany just accepted that the evil would-be step-mother was something to live with. And all her anger and trauma went away. It seems like evil never gets punished in the Luannverse.

    Dez is brilliant, something I’ve always believed. She is entirely right with the concept of forgiveness, because the forgiver really is healing their own soul, while the reaction to the forgiven is hopefully well-taken, but if not it’s one’s own life and personality that gets the repair. Tiffany needs to do that; I think that the second panel where Dez interrupts Tiff as she was about to call Steph the deserved “B” word is a brilliant play on what Tiff actually is doing herself by taking advantage of the boy’s kindness. Dez is leagues ahead of Bernice in the counseling game as she understands people.

Tiff may be a little light upstairs, but at least she means well and has expressed her gratitude to the guys around her.

    NO. Just forget it. Stef is toxic and Bets isn’t much better. Did they ever address the fact that Bets recorded and posted the video of Tiffany and Stef arguing without their permission?

    Stef is not a person who would learn anything by observing Tiffany’s example, other than “Boy, Tiffany sure is a chump! I can do whatever I want to her and she won’t fight back.”

    It’s been a month, presumably the mansion has been secured. She can go back there.

    Where are your reassurances that things will change Dez? None of what you"re saying makes any sense unless you have a way to make things change. Dez was the one who talked Tiffany into the dorm, and Tiffany invited Stef, so BOTH of them need to agree on a way to stop the abuse that’s getting dished out. Tiffany is not obligated to forgive and let things go back to the same old. Where is Stef’s apology and agreement to change?

    Or…pull up your britches, go back to the manse and get the security system upgraded. Or just go rent a small studio apartment close to campus. Tiffany has a lot of options that other people don’t. Also, I know Dez is trying to get the guys their lives back, but why is she so set on getting Tiff to come back to the dorm room? Stef must be driving them crazy.

    NO. Absolutely not. They already showed Stef they care about her when they gave up their turns in the privacy tent. And Stef turned around and accused them all of stealing from her. Do NOT go back to that toxic environment. If she’s afraid to go the mansion by herself, she can move into a different dorm room (or be a better houseguest to Gunther and Les). There are alternatives to putting up with a vapid, selfish child like Stef.

    Dez’s advice would be sound if this was a tiny argument with a friend… but Stef threatened to have Tiffany sued/arrested while accusing her of theft. That’s a serious deal breaker for a roommate arrangement, to put it lightly. Could you not see how this is a LITTLE different than a small argument, Dez? I also have not seen Stef express genuine regret for what she did or that she felt bad for Tiff leaving.

    I do like that Tiffany is showing that she actually cares about being a good person, High School Tiff would have just smirked and done a hairflip at the notion that she was being selfish/uncaring to someone.

    Look, it really can’t be overstated just how bad Dez’s advice is. The whole idea of “sure they’re toxic and treat you like crap, but if you just ignore it and set a good example for them I’m sure they’ll come around” had literally gotten women killed. Dez is so desperate to feel like things are “peaceful and calm” that she’ll let Stef get away with anything. Why is it everyone else that has to sacrifice?

    That is a terrible idea! If anyone treats Stefi better, she will only treat them worse. All the roommates need to stop allowing Stefi to walk all over them and not tolerate her bad behavior. Tiffany should go back home and maybe have a friend stay there too. Bets kept her company all summer.

    It’s not necessarily about telling Stef that she is “forgiven” but about mentally getting back to a clean slate with someone so that you can move on with your life. And Dez is presenting it as a challenge which Tiff relishes; she’s gently pointing that right now Tiff is being the abuser; she could not take the challenge and be the pot calling the kettle black.

    This is now the second person in recent history to advise Tiffany to go back to an abusive, toxic environment (the first was Bernice telling her to move back home so Ann Eiffel could use her as a slave some more.)

    The question isn’t weather Tiff can forgive Steff, it’s weather Tiff has the “maturity”/ability to set and effectively communicate her boundaries to Steff (doubtful) and weather Steff will honor those boundaries (very very doubtful). At best, if she does it right, Tiff is setting herself up for a long haul of stating boundaries and then enforcing and policing those boundaries. Great prep for teaching/parenthood/policework, but Tiff should ask weather she wants to volunteer herself into a thankless situation, or ask Dez to do it and let her martyr her sanity to Steff.
