Just a brief relapse here.

There is nothing that human beings enjoy more than to feel sorry for themselves. This is seen most clearly in fiction like Romeo and Juliet, or "Titanic." (even though I have never actually seen this movie, its fairly obvious what its about)

These works of extreme fiction highlight the fact that people would rather whine than just fix their problem. The whining and self-pitying places them at the center of attention, and removes personal responsibility.

Nowhere is this most revolting than in the case of love or intense emotional desire. Slick's correct response to a situation like this is to steel himself emotionally, knowing that easy victories are less satisfying. He should say something along the lines of "I'm right and you're wrong. I truly do love you, or I will learn to do it as quickly as I am able."

You might think it's more loving, gentle, considerate, whatever, to go along with what the female is saying, but in reality, she wants confidence. She wants something to believe in. She wants something that won't give up or waver.

The critical distinction between what I'm describing and 'creepy obsession' is that the person I'm describing really does have the other person's best interests in mind, is willing to wait extremely patiently for them to make the right decision, and (if you are mature enough to accept this) is founded strongly in the truth of God's word.

Refer back to the 'creep' strip to see what kinds of behaviour will not function alongside this more realistic outlook.

it's all too true. the girl looking for reassurance and the guy totally misinterpreting what she means/not knowing what the fuck to do to make her understand his simple intentions.

although, simple intentions might not mean that he wants a lasting relationship with her. i think women think too much.

I might be wrong, but doesn't it look like Slick is saying "I love you" in his mind to her, rather than saying it in reality?

That would make the response by 'Nique more plausible, in my opinion.

i thought so at first too, but it looks like in the last panel, as if he were rejected in reallife, not just in his mind. In think there was a timegap between panel 1-2 and 3-4

You go, girl. You go.

Edit: Hey, that's not offensive at all! Pretend it's more offensive. "You go, bitch. You go." or something like that.

Oooooohkay. Can anyone translate 'Nique for me? Apparently, I don't speak Girl.

Or, maybe I do get it, but I am completely baffled why this would be an appropriate or sensible thing to say. I'd be as confused as Slick.
