|Matthew Buchanan and Destiny Evans|
|Eddie Alderson and Shenell Edmonds as the original Matthew Buchanan and Destiny Evans|
|One Life to Live|
|Status||One night stand; ex-lovers|
Matthew (Eddie Alderson) befriends a feisty and intelligent girl named Destiny Evans (Shenell Edmonds), who cannot understand his need to be liked by the popular crowd. Destiny appeared to have a crush on Matthew although Matthew didn't realize it.
At a school dance in March 2009, Matthew asked a girl named, Becca Salzman, to dance and Becca agreed on a dare. Matthew was then humiliated when another kid named Justin had the DJ dedicate the song to Becca in Matthew's name and Becca rejected him. Everyone except Destiny laughed at him, and Matthew raced out of the school and jumped into the passenger seat of Cole's car.
