(Aggie has two past efforts, neither of which functioned in any way to make her more confident; Penny had two, as well, but both of those ended on her terms.)
True of Penny's relationship (such as it was) with Duane, and true of her first breakup with Rich. But remember, the second time they broke up, it wasn't her doing. (The argument they had some time before was partly her fault and partly his, but that ended in a shared joke over Penny talking like him and Rich pleasantly saying he was going out for a drive.) When her parents showed up and Rich saw them, Penny pleaded with him to realize she couldn't have called them, but he wouldn't listen and that was that. Perhaps you were thinking of the bit in "The New Reality" where Rich says to Sara, "Penny made her choice." That's how he assumed it happened, not how it actually did.

Hee hee. I said it in the IRC channel, and I said it in a tweet, so I may as well say it here too:
Penny needs to learn some patience, and in the meantime to invest in a shower attachment.
