Also, did you notice how ungrateful they were in i Do? Instead of being happy for getting invited to a wedding and even becoming BRIDESMAIDS (and the special man, or whatever it's called) they start whining like they have nothing good in their life and start complaining about singing or how the outfits were ugly, which, by the way, were very nice clothes, and I'm pretty sure were very expensive. Already in middle school kids are feeling very pressured to explore their sexual sides in negative ways; this just emphasizes the necessity for doing so.
Well technically Freddie told Spencer that he likes Carly and Spencer would wish they were closer together.
A probable reason this is so common in fictional media is the fact that a high amount of people consider themselves to have very few or no friends at all.
As this is not limited to real life however, many fictional shy people and those with few or no friends look for the same fulfillment as the reader, leading to two variants of this trope: Type A While "doing something really cool" is the focus of most fantasies, they also tend to focus on the friendships the characters have.
Then Carly goes on a rage, and chases Spencer around trying to attack him in some sort of way. There is no such thing as being overprotective, there are a lot of dangerous things out there.
Freddy's mom is probably the only good role model that the show is promoting to be the bad guy.
