Everywhere she goes, including her front lawn, she dresses and acts in ways expected of teenage girls. Now it can be argued that being able to act like a teenage girl is a freedom, but in this story, it almost seems as if Connie has to act like a teenage girl. For example, when Connie is in the drive-in restaurant and decides to leave with Eddie, but is unsure of leaving her friend alone, Eddie assures her that her friend will not be left alone for long (insinuating another male will pick her up), and when Connie and Eddie leave together, Connie looks around to make sure that others are aware of her triumph, “…the boy said that she wouldn’t be alone for long. So they went out to his car, and on the way Connie couldn’t help but let her eyes wander over the windshields and faces all around her…” (2). What Oates might be trying to sound out by Eddie being confident that Connie’s friend will find a guy shortly after Eddie found her, is that girls live a life full of expectations.
