Juliana Hatfield and Evan Dando were the Mulder and Scully of ’90s alternative rock not-it-couples, with their ongoing did-they-didn’t-they-or-will-they-eventually romance. They were close friends and collaborators (still are!), and everyone with a heart not made of granite was curious about the status of their friendzone at some point. Rumors flew that Juliana lost her virginity to Evan, until finally in 2006 she wrote a letter to the editor of Boston music magazine Dig denying it (she lost it to Spike Jonze instead).
Now, thanks to Twitter, you can watch them talk and flirt and friendzone each other and do whatever the hell it is they’re doing. They’re both kind of perfect on Twitter, you should definitely follow them anyway; Juliana is charming and funny, Evan is weird and spacey, just the way you’d hope they’d be.
Sure, it’s a little creepy and gross to be obsessed with the friendship between two 40-somethings. But please, just let us have this. We need this.
