Phoebe, Monica or Rachel?

I'd really like to know.
Whose wardrobe you'd rather borrow?
Who according to you was the best dressed?
Whose clothes had you impressed?
Phoebe, Monica or Rachel?
Whom did you find more graceful?

Every girl identifies with her.
She was the beautiful-yet-approachable girl next door.
Rachel's character wasn't overtly unique.
Not a perfectionist, comedian, geek or freak.
She was gorgeous to the core.
Yet, could share an instant rapport!

She was easy-going, not disheveled and carefree.
Groomed to perfection, that was a guarantee.
Always relaxed and forbearing.
Most of the times, patient and understanding.
Extremely attractive, yet not impossible to please.
She even had the silhouette for a memorable strip tease!

Phoebe just couldn't live with her.
Monica could only be paired with a pushover!
As much as Phoebe wanted to be her friend.
For an entire day, she couldn't pretend.
Only Rachel and Chandler could deal with her.
Because as much as she complained, they were okay with whatever!

Rachel's lived with almost everybody.
Monica, Phoebe, Ross and even Joey!
Because she's adaptable and not nit-picky.
This is the most important quality to look for in somebody!
She adjusted well with all personality types.
That's why she was so loveable, even though a fashionista stereotype!

And as a couple, remember Monica and Chandler?
I always felt Monica was like a dominating handler!
He was always on pins.
Attempting to please her whims.
Of course, she maintained a good home.
But, all inputs and decisions were only her own!

Rachel put her feelings before everything.
Not even security with Barry or father-to-her-offspring.
She was looking for love all along.
I don't think with a priority like that you can ever go wrong.
She had the guts to run away from her own wedding.
When something didn't feel right and was bothering.

Monica wanted that perfect wedding.
Without perfection, everything to her was upsetting.
Rachel ran away from that façade of a perfect life.
She did'nt even give a damn about being somebody's wife.
She did'nt even get a big fancy party.
She just wanted to enjoy her heart's safari.

She was the girl with courage and heart.
To give up her fancy life and attempt to restart.
Of course, things were difficult for her.
And she found solace on Monica's dependable shoulder.
But she gave up her fancy lifestyle.
While managing to maintain her smile and style!

Phoebe was quite the whimsical one.
Definitely good to have a friend who's fun.
But, she was too far from reality.
Difficult to get through to in all practicality.
She's definitely a girl I'd want at my party.
She'd be a hoot, this one so quirky!

Rachel adjusted well as a rich daughter with money.
And even as a waitress without a single penny!
She was always kind and approachable.
Hence, very popular and sociable.
The ability to adjust and be accommodating.
Was very respectful, unlike her friend who was dominating.

One cannot always be right.
Even if you are, others deserve respect despite.
You can have an opinion about just about everything.
As long as your not trying to impose them on others to be shoving!
Monica was that girl who always wanted her way.
She couldn't cope when she didn't get a say!

Rachel thought from her heart.
She'd always loved Ross from the start.
But until and unless she was absolutely sure.
She allowed herself time to discover.
When she affirmed it had always been Ross.
She gave up all her dreams, irrespective the cost.

I always thought Monica was the prettiest among them all.
She always had the features of a perfect porcelain doll.
Yet, her character was so controllably annoying.
The only character who did'nt win an Emmy; she could be terrifying!
Everyone was naturally attracted to the flexible one.
Despite her flaws, everyone's heart she had won!

I believe in most equations, be it with friends or family.
The odds of success depends on people's flexibility.
There is never going to be absolute balance of power.
Pick your battles wisely; it's not about whose voice is louder.
Most of the times the one who wins a battle is not really the winner.
But the one who consciously steps down so all can smile and enjoy dinner!

If you’re a guy who’s reading this, I’m intrigued; whom would you prefer to date? If you’re a female, whom did you like the most and why? Were you able to identify with one of the characters? Did you idolize any of them? I think many men would want a Phoebe in bed, a Monica in their kitchen and a Rachel everywhere else! But, what if you could pick just one? Yeah, there is such a thing as monogamy! And what if you could find a three-in-one? A fiercely loyal woman who’s a goddess in bed, knows your palate well and pampers your stomach while being passionately loving, charmingly submissive and feminine, patient and respectful, forever supportive, appreciative and pleasant? And yeah, she looks like a million bucks too! Sure, sometimes dreams do come true! 😉

  2. I didn’t watch the show, so I can’t say which of the characters I would prefer to date. Of the three actresses, I am most drawn to Courteney Cox, but that’s just based on appearances; I have no clue what she is like in real life. J.
