AIBU to think Anna is getting such a hard time for not wanting to have sex....

OP posts:

Yes - ish.

But she's also been rejecting all forms of physical contact, and Kevin - who has been kind and patient over the last 9 months - did have a bit of a tipping point when he saw her hugging Tim when she wouldn't touch him at all.

Doesn't give Kevin an excuse tho'.


Sittingintheshade · 11/07/2017 12:17

I found it very hard to believe that Erica would try it on with her mate's partner...


redshoeblueshoe · 11/07/2017 12:25

I found it very hard to think Erica would be interested in Kevin or Dev Grin


EdithWeston · 11/07/2017 12:29

So will Dev revert to being more of the person he was when he was dating Maya?

Or will Erica move in to someone else? Anyone in the current cast her age? She's a bit old for Peter, and I think Ken's past his prime now.

Will Mary be the third Mrs Cole or the second Mrs Alahan?

Will Kev end up with Liz?


darbyshaw · 11/07/2017 12:34

Kevin is no prize is he? Grin

In all seriousness (well, as serious as you can get when you're talking about a soap) Kevin must be feeling really rejected and sometimes people don't deal with feelings of rejection in perhaps the right way. Erica is a predator who doesn't give two shits about her friend.

Anna shouldn't feel under pressure to have sex but I didn't think that was the problem, it was the rejection of any physical closeness.


MeanAger · 11/07/2017 12:37

Kim Tate would never have looked near Kevin or Dev. Grin


redshoeblueshoe · 11/07/2017 12:59

Mean - she most certainly wouldn't Grin


Sittingintheshade · 11/07/2017 13:39

Maybe Erica will go for a younger guy instead, she was with nick a while ago.... Aidan maybe once Eva and Maria have had enough?!


Sittingintheshade · 11/07/2017 13:40

redshoe you've got a point there! Kev always looks like he needs a good scrub! And Dev and his irritating children! Argh!


Justhadmyhaircut · 11/07/2017 13:43

Asda and Aldi (Dev's dc!) are great in scenes with Erica!!
Mary and Adam make me squirm when she is all over him. . .
Maybe Erica and sugar daddy Norris?


Notknownatthisaddress · 11/07/2017 13:47


Anyway, I can't really blame Kev as he has been continually rejected, and as someone said, he saw Anna hugging Tim.

But it's a shame because Anna is basically suffering depression.

Sad situation.

I also agree that Erica and Dev just don't make sense. And same with Kev really. He's is permanently on the rag. Grin


eddiemairswife · 11/07/2017 13:48

I think Mary and Norris are a great couple, and have genuinely warm feelings for each other, but I can't think it would develop into a sexual relationship.


DearMrDilkington · 11/07/2017 13:53

I liked the other bloke Anna was with, Owen? He was much better than the wet blanket that is Kevin.

I think Anna and Tim would be much better together, Kevin can go crawling back to Sally.


ToEarlyForDecorations · 11/07/2017 14:01

Kevin and Anna are the least believable couple since, oh wait there's Peter and Toyah.

Kevin and Anna just don't seem to operate as a couple. It's not that she's getting a hard time off Kevin for not wanting sex. He has tried to help her or talk about it in his own ham fisted way which is why it results in a row inevitably. He gets frustrated sometimes. Anna is just an angry hard-faced person. No change since how she was with Owen.

However, I noticed this now familiar pattern from Kevin:

Remember when he was married to Sally ? First or second time - either will do and he started a relationship with Natalie (Denise Welch) ? He wasn't getting any from Sally at the time either. She was perpetually at her mother's house as her mother was ill.

Kev took his sense of entitlement and penetrated an all to willing Natalie with it.

Now we have Anna with body confidence issues who isn't confident in bed, so Kevin responds to the other woman who was pretty much waving her knickers at him whilst shouting cooeee.

I was only half watching him confess that he'd, 'been with someone else' how did he get away with having his good shirt on under his overalls when he got home that he had put back on to give some credence to his, 'vehicle breakdown call out' story ?

Kev and his affair partner make a much more credible couple than Kev and Anna. Or Dev and his unfaithful partner for that matter.

Dev has always got on my nerves but last night he excelled himself. All that stuff he had arranged for her. Why ? Still making up for making such a hash of his partners birthday ? It's the schmaltzy 'c'mon baybeeee' delivery that gets to me. Also, his attitude of 'I've done something you, aren't you lucky ? Now get down on your knees and thank me 'cause aren't I just the greatest ? Yuk.

My money is on Mary for the third Mrs Cole. I can't believe the change in Norris. I thinks I saw some emotional warmth coming from him lately. Just once mind.

How come Mary didn't have another crack at Roy once the dust had settled from Hayley's death ? Or he notice her. They've got boring in common.


redshoeblueshoe · 11/07/2017 14:21

toEarly - thank-you for making me laugh.
Peter and Toyah is ridiculous especially as she managed to be a barrister and a doctor whilst she's been away
Maybe Erica and Freddie - at least there would be some fun Grin


EdithWeston · 11/07/2017 15:34

If Toyah can return, can we have Spider too?

Juice bar, wasn't it?

And where is Geoffrey's Auntie Em? Perhaps they could return together?
