  10. "Tori's friend, Bobby"? Bobby, the one who's arm-to-arm with her? :) Hmmmm... do I detect a relationship? Methinks I do! Yay, Tori! So happy for you.

    1. Just because they're sitting close doesn't mean they're courting. I'm a teen ager and I sit that close to my male friends all the time. What's the big deal?

    2. When I'm with male friends, I usually don't lean over towards them to touch arms. Only couples tend to do that. Everyone else keeps a less intimate distance from each other. I don't usually feel the need to touch arms with my
      Male friends. Please try to be more courteous in your responses. They are coming across as rude.

    3. The Bates have a different standard. They try to have very little physical contact before marriage. Some of the kids didn't hold hands til engagement and some held hands and hugged. Some didn't hug til marriage kiss or anything.

    4. And they also have chaperones. Which it looks as if Trace is playing the role of.

    1. The Bates have not announced a courtship, so we will have to wait and see what happens. We always try to respect their wishes and not speculate or make announcements before they wish to make them.

      Blessings,
      Lily and Ellie

    2. We assume so since John mentioned that Tori has a boyfriend twice in a recent Name that Bates episode.

  15. Hi Readers,

    The Bates have not announced a courtship, so we will have to wait and see what happens. We always try to respect their wishes and not speculate or make announcements before they wish to make them. For now, any talk of a courtship between Tori and Bobby is nothing more than a rumor. :)

    Blessings,
    Lily and Ellie

    1. How could the relationship be a rumor when John even said that she had a boyfriend in this clip?

  19. Exactly, they're just sitting close to each other, they could just be good friends...
