LOL Love Jon's expression in the final panel.

Also, looks like he has a plan set for what he wants. I hope he can carry it through. A little personal growth and some flying on his own will do him a world of good.

I'm leaning towards Jon NOT getting over Candi anytime soon, judging by the way he looked at Jess in that last panel. It seemed to be an expression of annoyance...

I understand there's a lot of Jon!hate going on, about his ever present feelings for Candi. While I understand, I also know that sometimes, it's very difficult to stop feeling that way for someone. I think he's actually done a good job at hiding it. I don't ever get the sense that he's just 'waiting' for her to realize she likes him. I think Jon is just smitten with someone and he knows it's never going to happen. In fact, I think the fact that he hasn't tried to jump on Candi since his break up is proof that he knows it's not going to happen. He wants his own space, he wants to get away from things, and probably get back to finding himself (instead of a guy who's constantly getting tugged around by his heart and his d*ck).

I never really hated on Jon, because I had a huge crush on someone, and to this day, I still feel some of that when I'm around them. It's tough, but I'm glad he's got a plan. I also think he's just irritated that in sharing something completely un-Candi related, Jess had to bring it up and make him remember a sore spot.

Oh, joy. A reminder that women see him as this pathetic, stalkerish weirdo.

Or Jess does. Also doesn't imply stalking.

That's because he acts like one. He's also a great doormat. All he needs is for someone to tattoo the word "Welcome" on his forehead.

-_- Seriously. He does.


This time away from her might do him some good.

I don't blame him for wanting his own space after a semester of Linda living on the floor of his room.

That would have driven me bananas, but I never would have let the blue-haired wench back in in the first place. "I'll be on the streets!" "Good luck with that." :P

When she was good, she was very, very good,
But when she was bad, she was horrid!

I'd definitely think that was a factor.

I think Jon's getting fed up with people thinking, however rightfully so, that this is all there is to him. I'm looking forward to this opportunity to see Jon the Person and Jon the Character grow.

I second this. :D

I'm ready to see Jon as a man who knows his own mind, and knows what he's worth. If he's willing, he can find himself worth a lot more than an unrequited affection. An affection, I might add, that has been running his life for too many years- it's all anyone can see in him, it's all he identifies as.

I could grow to REALLY like Jon, if I could see him as a man who stands on his own.
