On last night’s Jersey Shore (Season 5, Episode 9: “The Truth Will Set You Free”), Deena Nicole was looking for love in all the wrong places. Namely, the Jersey Shore.

As Jersey Shore fans will recall, Deena has spent most of Season 5 crushing on Joey, a random guy she met out at the clubs. Last night, the girls in the house warned Deena that he was just using her to “do sex,” and didn’t actually like her.

Despite the repeated suspicions from her girls, Deena stuck to her optimistic, romantic notions and basically pestered Joey with questions like “Do you really want to hang out with me?” and “I want you to come home with me, will you come home with me?” and “Do you really like me?” all night until he, understandably, cut her off.

We wonder: Was Joey using Deena this whole time? Or did he originally actually like her and want to pursue a relationship with the meatball?

Catch an all-new Jersey Shore on Thursday, March 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
