“Congratulations! You’re Chandler! I’m sorry if your result failed to meet your expectations – after all, you set them pretty high, particularly with your lovers. Let’s face it, you’re a socially awkward mess that simply hasn’t a clue – unless it comes to humour. Humour is your defence mechanism, and although some may not get your corny jokes, you certainly think you’re hilarious. But it is your awkwardness and childlike humor that makes others simply fall in love with you (even if at first it may be due to pity!); you know when humor is appropriate, and certainly know how to cheer up your friends and make them laugh when they need it.”
- Awkward? Check!
- Corny, childlike jokes? Check!
- Know how to cheer up friends? Check!
Yep, all sounds about right! I’ve been told many times by my friends that I’m the Chandler of our group. What does this mean? Hopefully not just that I’m a “socially awkward mess that simply hasn’t a clue”. Thankfully, there’s so much more to Chandler! Mr. Bing really knows how to crack a joke, it may not be understood by everyone, but he just keeps coming up with them. In an awkward situation? No worries, he can make it even more awkward with a weird, sarcastic comment! Sounds super familiar to me… during a sappy moment with friends a while ago, someone asked if she can give us hugs and what was my answer? “No, we don’t hug here”. Typical Chandler, right? And whenever someone complains about your sarcasm? Easy, just blame it on being a child of divorce! That’s the perfect excuse, isn’t it? 🙂 Also, not to toot my own horn or anything, but the loyal friend part also rings a bell.
Another huge thing that I think makes me similar to Chandler is his relationship/marriage to Monica. There story is different from ours, but there’s just something about their chemistry that always reminds me of us. Chandler the yin to Monica’s yang. Opposites do attract sometimes. Monica is super organized, tidy, responsible, and Chandler, well… he’ s the lovable, goofy, slightly calmer one. There to lend a hand and soothe Monica’s worries. Super cute chemistry! Also very familiar to me hehe. I mean, who wouldn’t love that couple?
