"Sinjin: I'm sorry! I hit the wrong thing!
Jade: NO! Fifteen years ago, your mother gave birth to the wrong thing!
Sinjin and Jade in Tori the Zombie

Jinjin is the pairing of Jade West and Sinjin Van Cleef (J/ade and S/injin). This ship is also known as Sade (S/injin and J/ade) or Sinjade (Sinj/in and J/ade), although those pairing names are rarely used. Although Sinjin has expressed interest in various girls in the show (Tori in The Great Ping Pong Scam and Rex Dies, Cat in Robarazzi, Christie and Bella in Freak the Freak Out, Trina in Prom Wrecker), Jade seems to be his main love interest. Jade, however, shows obvious disdain towards Sinjin and his unwanted advances. Sinjin is often shown sniffing Jade's hair or trying to impress her. This pairing has a very small fan-base because most think it is creepy and/or weird.

Jinjin Hints from

  • Sinjin said he was starting a petition to get Jade to like him and asked people to like the post if they thought he had a chance.
  • Sinjin said he was waiting to go to Venice Beach with the gang and texted Jade, but she didn't respond.
  • Sinjin has Jade's number.
  • Sinjin has written Jade three haikus. Jade commented complaining that a "creep" writes poems for her and her own boyfriend doesn't. This suggests that Jade likes it when guys write her poetry because she became mad at Beck for not writing her poetry.
  • Sinjin: I wrote poems about Jade. I hope she reads them. They describe my feelings for her:
  • Poem 1:
    • Smile, yours is so white,
    • The enamel on your teeth
    • The highlight of my life.
  • Poem 2:
    • I just talked to Beck.
    • Said you guys were breaking up.
    • I am your rebound.
  • Poem 3:
    • Don't you like me like that?
    • There's always Tori or Cat
    • But Trina scares me.
  • Sinjin: I sit behind Jade in homeroom. She has the prettiest earlobes.
  • Sinjin remarks that Jade has "a lovely home" on TheSlap, with Jade responding, "That's it, I'm buying a guard dog."
  • Sinjin was planning on taking Jade to prom.
  • Sinjin posted a stress tip and typed '#stress tip' at the end of his post. Jade then told him that the slash symbol does nothing on TheSlap. Sinjin then says that he'll do anything she tells him to do and so he reposted it without the '#stress tip'.
  • When Sinjin said he bought suspenders online and plans to wear them to school, Jade said that she hopes he'll get suspended.
  • Sinjin makes a video with his sock puppets of "Jade Meeting Sinjin," and Jade doesn't go too far with her anger like she usually would.
  • Jade almost seems concerned about Sinjin's use of sock puppets, because she says it's just "not right." She's trying to help him understand how crazy the concept is.
  • When Sinjin writes a summary of the video, he says that 'Puppet Jade is into Puppet Sinjin, just like in real life'.
  • The puppet's dialogue in the video reveals how Sinjin feels about Beck and Jade's relationship, namely that he thinks Jade is only with Beck because she feels sorry for him, and that she actually wants to date Sinjin. According to him, she thinks about Sinjin all the time (even while she is brushing her hair and putting on lip gloss) and she expresses feelings that she is unable to act upon by giving him wistful looks in the hallway and at lunch. Apparently, the only reason Sinjin has yet to fully succumb to her 'advances' is because she belongs to Beck, and "Sinjin doesn't cuddle what ain't his." However, the fact that he told the real Jade that he was 'just pretending' when she asked him what he was doing may mean that he is aware that Jade being in love with him is just a fantasy.
  • Sinjin interrupts one of Beck and Jade's Relationship Advice videos by asking if they are making one and leaning in close to Jade's face, maybe because he's jealous. Jade then glares silently at him (without moving away, however) until he goes away.
  • Sinjin posts that he hired a girl to post funny status updates but then said Jade fired her because she was too cute, his mood was "Whatever," however he was probably lying.
  • Jade posted a mean update about Sinjin, but he was still thrilled that she even mentioned him. This is how the conversation goes:
    • Jade: What do you think would be worse? Being stuck on a desert island with Tori or having to talk to Sinjin for more than 5 minutes?
    • Tori: C'mon, I'm not that bad.
    • Sinjin: I can't believe Jade just talked about me in a status update!
  • Jade posted a status update about how Sinjin sat on her scissors.
    • Jade: Sinjin sat his stupid butt on my fave scissors and now he's at the hospital getting stitches. What's he crying about? My scissors are RUINED!
  • Sinjin posted a status update about Jade. His mood was "punished."
    • Sinjin: Sikowitz didn't show up to school again so Jade decided to take over. She gave everyone detention—but she looked pretty doing it.
  • Sinjin posted about his hair on TheSlap and Jade commented. The posts go like this:
    • Sinjin: I saw some pics of myself when I was younger. Man, my hair was ridiculous back then.
    • Jade: Yeah it's totally awesome now.
    • Sinjin: Really, Jade? You think so?
    • Jade: No.
  • Sinjin was trying to get Jade to like him more by changing his hairstyle, and she admitted it would look better than his old hair. Here are the posts:
    • Sinjin: Y'know, I think Jade would like me more if I straightened my hair. BRB! Off to the barber!
    • Jade: I still wouldn't like you, but it would definitely be an improvement.
  • Sinjin edited a picture of Jade and gave her his eyes.
  • Sinjin posted on TheSlap that he and Jade had a "sweet, snotty connection" because they both picked their noses.
