I agree, not only do I not care that Abby is a virgin, I do not like the relationship between Abby and her mother. Jennifer should be happy Abby confides in her and is comfortable discussing things with her mother. Furthermore Jen, it is not Chloe's fault if Daniel chooses to have her move in, it is Daniel's. Daniel could say, "Look Chloe, I see what you are up to but I value my relationship with Jennifer and MILLIONS of Americans have co-parenting styles where the biological parents do not cohabitate. Jennifer is acting like she is in 1950, the fake 1950 that no one really lived like anyway. It is getting TeeDEEous.
My theory? I think, deep down, Daniel enjoys having multiple women vying for his skeevy orange dipstick. It appeals to his ego, and Danny-Boy is all about ego. Otherwise, he'd be putting Chloe up in a hotel or her own apartment rather than allowing her to stay with him.

To me, Days has gotten so much better lately but one thing that just is NOT working is Cameron. Sure he's attractive but uber bland, zero personality, there's no rooting interest or drama associated to him at all. So, Abby's a virgin. Who gives a shit? Kate Mansi has proven she can handle some heavy material. Give her some! I hate having to FF her scenes.

I'm intrigued by the possible "dangerous" situation Nicole has gotten herself into.

Unless she's wronged Nick there's not a lot of danger in Salem at the moment.

I definitley think Dr Dan loves having several women fawn & fight over him
it is a boost to his ego. I also think once he gets a women / conquest
his attention turns elsewhere .

I thought Abigail told Cameron she was a virgin when they has their multiple attempts at sex the last time. if not, what reason did she give for being reluctant about it?
I don't think she ever gave a reason. I think he just got fed up with all her mixed signals and dumped her. I really think this story is kind of ridiculous. Why is she so afraid of him knowing she's a virgin? WHO CARES?! Jennifer didn't act like it was a big, bad thing during her virginal years. She wanted it to be special her first time and I don't particularly remember her being that embarrassed about it either....although my memory is kind of fuzzy with her before Jack came along. Abby acts like it is some sort of defect. I wish the story was more about her actually falling in love with someone she has real chemistry with, as opposed to who she loses her virginity to. Stupid.
Re: the bolded...while I agree that being a virgin isn't, in the grand scheme of things, a big deal, I think that you have to take into account the fact that Jennifer grew up in a very different time than Abby did. For many of the people of Abby's generation, having sex isn't a big deal, and virginity is something that you lose during high school. Sex tapes and sexting are commonplace. In general, sex and the exploration of sexuality are treated more casually than they would have been during Jennifer's young adult years.

It makes perfect sense to me that Abby would feel like being a virgin is embarrassing. Many young adults feel that way when they are still virgins, especially at Abby's age. She's in college -- not high school -- and she's the only person in her peer group on the show who has not yet had sex. There's a difference between being okay with being a virgin (which she claims that she is, but I'm sure that there's probably a part of her that wishes that she could just get it over with) and being confident that everyone else (specifically the men whom you are interested in, one of whom is definitely sexually experienced and the other of whom we can reasonably assume is sexually experienced) will be okay with that fact, and that's where her insecurity comes into play. There's also a point where, as a virgin, the actual act of having sex for the first time has been built up to a level where it has been turned into an even more nerve-racking event than it would otherwise be, and Abby seems to have reached that point, which, IMO, is why she was unable to have sex with Cameron last year, despite the fact that she wanted to have sex with him as a way to escape her grief over her father's death.

I am READY!!

This sounds interesting. Jen/Dan/Chloe is starting to pick up! I like that Chloe is moving in with Dan. There are too many good opportunities with this one. Maybe, just maybe... Dan will realize he's wasting his time on Jen? Probably not with this show but my fingers are crossed.

I hope there is a longing stare or close encounter between Ericole. Please, soap gods. :pray:

I get what you're saying. And I even know more than one person who is older than Abby for which this is an issue. But you have provided a much more thoughtful, in-depth, and caring presentation of Abby's likely POV than what the show is giving us.

In an earlier post, I noted that Jennifer didn't make an issue of her virginity, but rather was waiting for the right guy. And it's true that she wasn't rushing to have sex for its own sake. However, I will admit that she was rushing to be married. She wanted that "happily ever after" life she thought she was missing out on. And we saw her emotional struggle even while we saw her trying to be an independent career woman as well.

Aside from all that, my main point is that whatever the angle they take with Abby, the story should be entertaining. And this story just isn't. It's lame and uninteresting. I don't know why TomSell chose this route with Abby, but they seem to be trivializing or otherwise wasting the potential of it. And it's almost oppressive in that Abby is singly focused on this subject. Just like we only see Jennifer with her laser-like focus on Daniel, we also only see a fairly one-dimensional Abby.

If the show is going to insist on only showing this side of her, then why not have her reveal more of her internal angst -- to have her articulate some of the depth of feeling that you laid out so well in your post? Maybe she should talk to Father Eric or Marlena to get some perspective, since her own mother seems incapable of any. And forget about Maggie, too.

These would be more interesting spoilers if A.) we didn't already know that the role of Will and Gabi's baby is currently being cast, and B.) they weren't about Gabi, Jennifer, and Daniel.

Jennifer had better be careful giving Daniel an ultimatum when he's about to get a new patient.

I agree everyone, Dr. Dan loses interest once things get serious or the woman places any demand upon him whatsoever. This it was "convenient" when he found out about Chloe and Philip last time and he quickly seems to retreat from Jennifer. He could have very well informed Chloe that he and Jennifer would see them tomorrow and everything would be okay with Parker as it has been for the past two years without him, he could have said Parker is important but I am with Jennifer, I am actually on top of her, and we are consummating our relationship - see you later.

But he took it as an out to leave their attempt at a romantic retreat which was not his idea in the first place, I think he very well could be charting a course out of town. He likes variety and to remain aloof.

^Oh spaaarrree me. At least I can look forward to a gang-up-on-Sami-and-don't-take-her-crap day, even if EJ has to ruin it. Bristen argument could be fun - maybe.

Is Rafe still going to be having scenes with Sami every week? I thought they give it a rest for a little while.
