Awww, looks like Candi is embracing this relationship with Chris further.
I wonder if Alex will follow to see where she rushed off to? :twisted:

Why is Candi going to meet him? I thought she wanted to not like him, and I would think avoiding him would help more than seeing him. It's not like it would be hard to brush him off, anyways. I understand that she does like him, against her better judgment, as it were, but I'd love to know the thought process that took her from"Grr he's annoying!" to "Sure, let's meet up" in the space of 2 minutes.

I love how the face on her shirt mirrors her own face.

Because Candi can't just do something because she wants to. She has to engage in all this internal plausible-deniability doublethink to *trick* herself into going out with someone she really, really likes. If she really didn't want to go out with him, the smart thing would be to just not answer his texts. It would require some persistence, since when she doesn't answer the first one, he's likely to send a second one, and then a third, since this would be a change in her behavior that, in his mind, would require explanation, since he genuinely cares about her, and would likely worry. But really, given she's a terrible liar and "I don't want to see you any more" just wouldn't hold (since she clearly does want to see him), she'll just have to stonewall him.

But she won't, because that isn't what she really wants. What she really wants is [censored] [censored] [censored...]

What she really wants is any sort of excuse to go merrily on denying any sort of attraction to him. It's all about saving face, kiddies.

Oh, she was never NOT going to meet him.

It's not so much that she wants to "not like him" as that she's annoyed at herself for liking him. And like him she does.

Also, she really didn't want to answer a text from her new attraction in front of her ex-boyfriend. I think the "Grr..Annoying" was partially for Alex's benefit, to cover up her real reaction, and partially because she's really annoyed at herself for having a reaction to Chris's text in the first place. Having Alex there when she received the text may have also made her accept what she's feeling, since she presumably used to feel the same way about Alex.

She's been telling herself she's better off alone, but now she's getting warm fuzzies and other feelings whenever Chris talks to her or texts her. So she has to take a moment to calm herself down before she can answer his text. :p

Poor Candi, she so wants to avoid a drama bomb, yet here she is - arming the potentially biggest drama bomb yet!

Where can I get one of those? :D

She acts like she's having an affair. XD

You're thinking those are mutually exclusive reactions. Candi is good at hiding her motivations from herself, but she isn't stupid.

Overstated in places, but yeah, this too. What your calling double-think is really just normal human behavioural rationalization.

Truth.

I don't think any of that was for Alex's benefit, though Alex's knowing the truth would embarrass her. But otherwise, yeah.

That's all there is to it, huh? And why is there no skeptical smiley icon.

It is a nice touch.Though I think it's less mirroring her face and more mirroring her emotions. Which is actually kind of appropriate in an emoticon.

Eh if we look at the flashback with Candi's interaction with Alex, she started off finding him annoying/stick-in-his-ass, too. Maybe she is attracted to people who challenges her or keeps her on her toes :P

Still, I gotta join in on the "Yay Chris" crowd :D

I'm stoked! I like Chris too! Let's vicariously date him through Candi, guys.

Also, have people here have never liked anyone they "weren't supposed to?" It's pretty conflicting, especially since she thought he was a jerk before.
