I thought Beatrice and Benedick's relationship was based solely on desperation. They each said, well the other one likes me so I should like them. I thought it was interesting how their relationship developed over the book, and was funny to see it develop. No, I do not know anyone with a relationship like Beatrice and Benedick have.

Some people could say that their relationship is fake because they like each other based off of what they heard. I think that it is true love in the end. No, i don't know anyone with a relationship like that.

Beatrice and Benedick had the realationship that started out like an elementary school realationship. They were both really mean and negative towards eachother and then as the book moved on, they had their relationship turn into a serious one.

I found the relationship of Beatrice and Benedick funny they both only liked one another at the beggining because they believe the other person liked them. But then at the end they did figure out that they did truly care for one another.

I think that Beatrice and Benedict have a very realistic relationship. I think that they hate one another but there common hate for one another is what binds them to love.

I think that Beatrice and Benedick's relationship was a very immature one in the beginning of the story. Although by the end it matures into a blossom of love. I think that they have the relationship that a movie star would have these days like one star not admitting she loves the other one then all the truth about the two come out and then they have to come out and say their together.

Beatrice and Benedicks relationship was weird in a way becuase they always had different feeling when they saw each other at different times.

Cameron said...

Their relationship is like several others. People may not notice it but when people are always talking about each other like that, there is a possibility that they like each other. I do know people that turned out like Benedick and Beatrice.

I believe that their relationship was like a kindergarten relationship with the way they treated each other. But in the end their relationship was one of love. When Benedick thought about dueling Claudio just for Beatrice this showed true passion.

Justin Mills said...

I believe their love is real, but I believe that Benedick loves Beatrice more than Beatrice loves Benedick. I think she would have no problem using him to do her dirty work. I do not know anyone with a relationship like that.

Love can be measured in many different ways some people believe in love at first site and some dont but i think that beatrice and benedick is out of desperation and thats it. they were just fight about who is more ugly and just childess things that werent even worth fighting for. But at the end it seemed like they finally started to care for each other truly

I think that the relationship between Beatrice and Benedick is true even though they heard fake stories. It seems true because when they heard it they acted like they were truly in love. I do not know anyone with a relationship like they do but I'm sure that there is some sitcom reality show that has them.

James Raymond said...

I think the relationship between both Beatrice and Benedict is truly hilarious and shows that they both enjoy having fun and having a good time. The way William wrote this was good because it shows a lot more color to their characters and brings out the relationship between them more to the audience because it is very entertaining and funny to watch them go at it.

Owen Doane said...

The relationship that develops between Beatrice and Benedick is does not seem to be a healthy relationship in my opinion because of the fact that Beatrice forces Benedick to duel Claudio. This is Benedick friend and fellow soldier. To me this shows her lack of respect for her lover Benedick. In the long run a relationship without respect is a relationship that in my opinion is detined to end up failing.

Brian Petroski said...

I dont think their relationship was real at all. THe only reason they liked each other was because they thought the other one liked them first. Throughout the book it didnt seem like they liked each other either. I dont know anybody with a relationship like that.

Zuri Thorpe said...

I believe that these two really do enjoy each other. But the sour taste that was left in Beatrice's mouth due to her previous relationship with Benedick was something that was very hard for her to get over. It was very obviuos from the start of the play that they both had some interest each other because the spent all their time ragging on one another. Their relationship was no different than the tipical highschool relationship. That when one is rejected they feel the need to take every chance to get back at the other.

Beatrice and Benedick's relationship to me is real phony. They like each other because they are always fussing at each other and if they did not want to bother each other they would not say a thing to each other. Yes i do know someone with a relationship when it comes to mind.

zach schwartzman said...

I feel that Beatrice and Benedicks relationship is based only on that they both needed someone to love. I felt that they were both very lonely and they needed someone to love and for them to be loved. I know that one of my friends is definitley just going out a girl because he just wants a girlfriend.

Dirty Pete said...

Beatrice and Benedick's relationship developed from them making fun of each other. After a while neither of them can come out about their love because they are hiding behind this mask of defense. My parents are some-what like this. The constantly make fun of each other, but they truly love one another.

I think that Beatrice and Benedicts relationship was kind of a fluke. They didn't really like eachother until they found out that the other likes them. And then they supposedly fell madly in love. This just seems to not happen often. They were mocking each other at the beggining of the book and now they fall in love? And no, i don't know anyone witha relationship like this.

Benedick and Beatrice's relationship did well in that play, it had its ups and downs but overall it was nice to see the two of them grow to love each other, even if it was all a trick. i liked that even in the end when they said they didn't love each other, they were presented with notes from each other expressing their love.

tymetrius said...

It was a crazy relationship dont really know a couple with a relationship like that. They was alway on and off but it's funny how they fell in love based of what everyone else was saying and what they was hearing not so much of beig around each other.

CJones said...

I feel that their relationship was a relationship that was forced. they felt that they should like one another because of what they each heard. as the play goes on i feel that the relationship becomes more real and genuine. I do not no anyone that has a relationship like this.

RJ Schmitz said...

I think that the relationship between Beatrice and Benedick was actually a true relationship. I mean think about it, how many of us say things about our girlfriend that we don't really mean but are saying it to be funny. Our girlfriends know we are playing around and do the same back to us and we know they are playing around. So I think that even though they were "tricked" into loving one another, they actually liked each other before they were set up.

Beatrice and Benedicks relationship developed throught the book. At first they really couldnt show there intrest because love was holding them back but when they got close they seem to have this act like they were shy and thats when became in love

RyanSmith said...

Beatrice and Benedick's relationship to me was bound to have them ending up together they both hated the fact that they loved each other. This relationship reminds me of my little nephew and his friend from school, they are in kindergarten.

sep said...

In the beginning, I think Beatrice and Benedick were not necessarily faking being in love but they were forcing themselves to be together because they were desperate. Then, by the end of the book, they actually turned out to fall in love from spending so much time together and going through so much stuff together. No, I don't know anyone with this kind of relationship...it sounds really unhealthy.

Joe Dingle-EL said...

i would say that beatrice and benedick relationship was crazy. i think they always like each other because they just spent to much time going back in forth.i knew that they were in love from the begining of the book .my brother and his gurl friend and just like them and thats who they remind me of.

Cody Steward said...

Beatrice and Benedick's relationship is a little weird. You're never quite sure whether they are fighting or flirting as the title of this blog suggests.

ttk said...

I think that Benedick and Beatrice's relationship was long brewing and that even though they appeared to hate each other on the outside, that they were both deep down in love with one another. No, I do not know anyone with a relationship like that.

nick price said...

Beatrice and Benedick's relationship seemed a bit childish in the beginning because it seemed that they would not admit that they liked each other simply because they were both too proud and did not want to admit it. I think its weird that the only reason they had a relationship was because their friends tricked them into it, and I also do not feel that their relationship was a real one, but rather more of a desperate one.
