Desiree Emmaline Hollinger Beaumont bumps into Eric Matthews (literally) in the John Adams High School hallways. After initially complaining about Eric staining the shoes she had just bought in New York, Desiree explains that her family had just moved to Philadelphia from Atlanta and that she doesn’t know anyone.
Eric is eager to get to know Desiree because of her jaw-dropping beauty and southern charm. Despite protests from Jason Marsden, who Eric had just recently warned to stop him from getting involved with another girl, Eric cannot resist a chance with Desiree.
After a purported month of dating (which conveniently spans only two episodes), Eric dumps Desiree because of her high-maintenance demands. In her final scene, the show alludes to Desiree dating Jason, but she is never mentioned again after that episode.

Who Does Desiree Date in Boy Meets World?
Desiree dates Eric Matthews and Jason Marsden over her two Boy Meets World episode appearances during Season 2. But, like many of Eric’s other girlfriends, she moves on to Jason after her relationship with Eric doesn’t work out.
Desiree finds Eric attractive after bumping into him in the hallways. Since she’s new to the school, she loves the idea of Eric helping her acclimate.
Soon, however, she starts forcing Eric to run her errands and call her pet names like Georgia Peach and Puddin’. She also refers to Eric as her Yankee Doodle and Puff Pastry. Desiree is an overbearing partner, and Eric finally ends the relationship.
After temporarily ending his friendship with Eric because of Desiree’s behavior (including insults hurled toward Jason), Marsden does what almost any guy would do in this situation: date Desiree himself.
Once Eric dumps Desiree for her high-maintenance tendencies, Jason trades his pride for a chance to date her.
