... On the one hand, character development, but on the other hand, kinda bland character development.
Or maybe it is actually very insightful into Francis's character, and I just stink at reading character.

Also I want his hair and ears.

For some reason I'm reminded of Scott Pilgrim.

I like how he goes from outraged denial to grudging acceptance of the accusation haha.

Unless you meant like for on your own self, which would be... also weird.

Is stringing someone along in a relationship bad? While you may not 'love' them entirely anymore, both are still getting enough out of it to remain in the relationship. If you feel the need to move on, or the other party feels that they're not getting what they deserve, you just stop it right there. No harm, no foul.

God I love those comics (and the movie). And they work because Scott is kind of a terrible person at first.

YES.

If one person is ultimately hoping for deep commitment, and you, say, *know* you're not going to want that, and *you* know that they want that commitment... you're ultimately preventing them from *getting* what they want-they just don't know it at the time. You are, effectively, lying to them.

Actually, no, you *are* lying to them. "Stringing them along" is kind of just a nice way to say it. You are leading them on with the promise of something you actually have no intention of sharing/giving.

I'm not a native english speaker, so there may be a nuance in the word that I could misunderstand, but I'll add my thoughts.

I think it depends on wether the other party knows and willingly goes along with it, and if there's a degree of maliciousness in the 'stringing' along. Just stringing someone along as a way to manipulate them and misuse their hopes for a real relationship is indeed a douchebag move, but if the other person knows you're really not looking for anything and they still want to go with it. There's some that think they can 'fix' or 'convince' you to actually commit to the relationship even if you show no interest and actively make your thoughts on the matter known.

You're not obligated to let someone down hard, and where's the harm if both parties know where they stand?

Aaah. Fair enough. The phrase "Stringing someone along" implies the other party does *not* know.

Something like this came up concerning his ex-fiancee when basketball player Jason Collins came out (sorry, link to ONTD):
http://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/77322840.html

She never necessarily said he was stringing her along but there were lots of comments (in various places, not just ONTD) where people criticized him for (in their opinions) doing so.
