Matty McKibben is the long time friend of Jake Rosati and the object of Jenna Hamilton's obsession with the super hottie, along with every girl in school including Jenna's super bitchy nemesis Sadie Saxton. He isn't the typical popular jock. He's complicated because he's actually trapped by his own insecurity and very self conscious. He and Jenna had sex at the end of summer camp in a supply closet, but he doesn't want anybody to know how he feels about or what he did with her.Edit
Jenna - Matty Relationship Season One
Matty's interest in Jenna becomes visible on the last day of summer camp thus taking Jenna by surprise, but ultimately leading to them having sex in a supply closet and Jenna losing her virginity. Jenna thinks her chance with the guy of her dreams may have finally come, but much to her disappointment, Matty informs her that no one can know about them. When returning to school for sophomore year, Matty gives Jenna a subtle smile to let her know he hasn't forgotten about what happened, however her attempts to actually talk to him fail. The pair share an awkward exchange when a nude Matty trips and falls into the lap of the injured Jenna while showing his school spirit. The two finally face each other a Jenna's submission in a wheel of chance activity called "Sex Change" at the pep-rally because of Jenna. In the game Jenna is partnered with another student, while he is paired with Sadie Saxton in a race to completely switch clothes with one another's partner. Jenna wins and Matty acknowledges.
Although Matty cares about Jenna, he doesn't really know anything about her or her personal life (what really happened during the acident, her blog, the care-frontation later, etc.) aside from the fact that she had an accident and he doesn't give Jenna any clarity on whether or not he actually believes the "suicide" story.
At the hands of mean girl Sadie Saxton, Jenna faces more embarrasement when pictures of her boobs show up all around campus. She confides in the web, posting on her status that she is in need of saving and that all heroes should apply. Matty doesn't help when he anounces to the school population that "There isn't much to see" upsetting Jenna because she witnessed him say it. Later on, Matty visits Jenna with all the pictures of her boobs in hand (he took them down) and explains that he wasn't trying to insult her, he was only trying to deflect attention from her boobs. It is then that Jenna realizes that Matty saw her status and was attempting to be her hero. The two end the night kissing, but the they do a little more than that on a regular basis.
Jenna starts to believe that Matty wants to finally take their relationship public when he invites her to a kicker with nothing but popular people. She is excited and even brings Tamara along, however things get a little awkward when she realizes that kick backs aren't like raging parties with hundreds of people and she can be easily seen. She spots Matty who comes over to greet the two, but to her dismay he doesn't introduce Jenna as his friend, girlfriend, or anything of the sort and is pretty distant for most of the party.To make things worse, Jenna spots Maty in the hot tub making out with a popular girl and decides that that is her cue to leave so she waits outside on the steps only to run into Jake who seems to also have had enough for the night and offers her a ride home. This marks the official beginning of the Matty-Jenna-Jake love triangle.
Shortly before the Home-Coming Bonfire, Tamara pressures Jenna to DTR her relationship with Matty before they hook-up like everyone else does to save herself some trouble. In the end she lets his charms get to her, and the two hook-up behind a dumpster after the bonfire. Jenna's awkwardness invites her insecurity while they are together leading her to poke fun at herself as they make-out. But, Matty tells her that she is a really good kisser, funny, and beautiful whether she's in the dark behind the dumpster or in the light. When they are done, Jenna feels confident enough to drop the DTR bomb on Matty, but he tells her that he likes her a-lot he's just not sure he's ready to be in a relationship. Back at school, Jenna feels betrayed when she sees a beautiful brunette hop out of Matty's truck leading her to believe that when Matty said he wasn't ready for a relationship, he meant with a suicidal nobody. Jenna then decides to investigate the girl whom she starts to call "Jenna Plus" even though her real name is Olivia. An encounter with a creeper selling "Jenna-Lives" t-shirts lands Jenna in detention with Jenna Plus and Jake allowing her to learn that Jenna Plus is actually a very sweet girl and hang with Jake. Later that day, Jenna confronts Matty asking how he knows Jenna Plus. He reveals that she is actually his Girlfriend-In-Law.
Coincidentally as Jenna is forced by her mother into coming to a Knick-Knackers Intake Gathering, she runs into Matty who is serving drinks. They chat a bit and he tells her that she looks nice. When the two meet again after being brought into the kitchen, Jenna finds Jake to be behind the counter as wellu whom she hadn't seen since they kissed after being released from detention. Jake seems to be a little all over the place and out of it, dropping and spilling things. After Jenna leaves, Matty demands to know what is going on with Jake. Jake informs Matty that he kissed Jenna and that he might be into her. Of course, Matty doesn't take a liking to this and tries to convince him that the kiss was nothing and that he should just let it go. Jake however decides that talking to Matty has only made him realize how into Jenna he really is and that he should talk to her about it to be sure of what's going on between them. When Matty sees Jake texting her so that they can talk, he too pulls out his phone to ask Jenna is they can meet tonight. Matty is afraid that Jenna might be losing interest in him and disappointing when she sees that she has replied to Jake's message insisting that he call her.
The second season started in Matty's new year party where Matty tells Jenna that he wants a second chance with her. Jenna is confused. She loves Jake because he isn't embarrassed to be around her (Jenna) in public and he's sweet but, is he too sweet for Jenna? Then there is Matty, gorgeous, caring , and loving Matty... they're in love with each other, but Jenna doesn't want to go back to the awkward silence in public or the secrets of her and Matty's relationship. 3, 2, 1 Happy New Years! Jake and Jenna are together and Matty and Sadie are together..wait, what?! Matty was drunk, and Sadie is pathetic. Later on in season 2 Jenna and Jake brake up... big b*tch (Sadie) tells Jake about Jenna and Matty's past. The night Jake finds out he wont answer any of Matty's calls and wont even listen to Jenna talk. Later that night Matty goes to Jennas house to see what exactly was going on.
