Girls FrustratedOne of the reasons that people love Girls is that the show just gets it. It gets dating, it gets life post-college, it gets sex, it gets friendship, it gets work life. Basically, it just gets it all. Sometimes it is almost too real at how well it gets your life. You sometimes wonder if Lena Dunham has a crystal ball that she can see your life because you didn’t think that anyone else could have an experience like that besides you. Pretty much everything on Girls‘ sums up life as a twenty-something, but there have been times where a few simple lines summed it up perfectly.
