Who do we ship Connie with? Who do you think fits best with Connie? Whoever wins this poll shall marry Connie once and for all! We will have a wedding for them. Thanks for voting!

Who's going to play the guys who kidnap Mitch and show Connie that she doesn't really want to be married to him?

I'm generally not a fan of shipping people places. It's not right to treat other humans like commodities. :( But I suppose if we have to ship Connie, we should use FedEx; I've generally found it to be the most reliable :yes:

I'm satisfied with Connie being single because other than Eugene and Whit (who are obviously off-limits) I feel that there's no male I like Connie interacting with very much. Maybe a new character will come along...

Frankly, I just want more adult women that Connie can interact with. Like, not just peers, like Penny (who is now married to a pre-established male cast member, act surprised), but older women—older women who have husbands that we don't know. Grumpy, snarky, down-to-earth, intelligent, aggressive, whatever—I just want more older women on this show who don't exist almost solely to be the wives of male characters. Maude Walton only appeared in three episodes (one of which only had one line, which was her shouting indiscriminately); Agnes Riley has only appeared in nine episodes; and Jenny Whittaker and Katrina Meltsner's defining roles are "Whit's wife" and "Eugene's wife", respectively, no matter what they've accomplished as characters or people. Even Joanne Allen was introduced and almost immediately turned into a love interest, then had to give up her whole career to settle down with her husband.

In a vacuum, none of these things are bad, but taken together, they reveal a rather disturbing trend among this show's adult female characters. It says a lot that I can think of and define five different types of personalities from female child characters and can talk about their independent stories and traits (Liz, Mandy, Tamika, Sarah, Kelly), but the female adult characters besides Connie barely have stories of their own beyond "X character's spouse".

Basically, I think that before we start shipping Connie off with some boy-of-the-week, we ought to round out the cast a lot better.

Agreed. It is interesting, and even a little disappointing that so many female characters come in for the sole purpose of marrying someone. Would it be going too far to call it sexist? I don't think it's intentional. What most likely happened was they just had a lot of male characters and wanted them to get married, or be married. I wish they would have started off with a mix of female and male characters, specifically adult ones, that we could ship and think about. THEN, they could put people together, after they had developed a strong friend relationship. That's something else that's always bothered me. Specifically about Jack and Joanne's relationship. Whit has said he doesn't believe in "love at first site." Yet, it's very clear that Jack and Joanne fall in love the second they see each other. This happened on a smaller scale with Bernard and Mod, Wooton and Penny, and even Eugene and Katrina. That said, I think we've all had that time where we meet someone and feel an immediate connection with them, but those instances consist of temporary romantic feelings and usually lead to nothing more than a close friend.

I totally agree, TigerShadow! :) That would be really nice. I feel like she has a lot of older guy friends but not older lady friends. LIKE NONE.

Yes, I completely agree with you, Mitch being the obvious exception.
