You Move On 9/16/15

So maybe no romance. At least it didn't hurt him too deeply.

At least he's aware of when people aren't into things. That puts him ahead of a lot of people.

^ And to add to that, at least Jess A) knew herself well enough to know what she did and didn't want and B) communicated that as soon as possible. Which also puts her ahead of a lot of people. :)

Geez, Thad. If Jess had been white, would you have identified her as the while girl? Not cool.

Called it. :-)

Also, yeah, but at least he identified her first as Candi's roommate, *then* narrowed it down to `the black girl', and then, probably -- finally remembered her name. Kind of fits, because they don't know each other that well. Or maybe it just seems normal to me, because I suck at names...

Two thing I hope for, here;
  • The conversation shifts to Chris's new interest -- and a closer inspection, by Chris, of his own motives there. Not that there's anything wrong with his motives, just helps to clarify what you're doing, why, and whose feelings could get hurt if you do it wrong [including his own. I mean, they are good friends, and the possibility of losing a friend doesn't appeal to most people],
  • Thad gets some further insight into his own situation, and how to handle it better [either with a little help from Chris, or just a random byproduct of talking about this kind of thing, with someone who's fairly clueful about this kind of thing]. He is trying, but it's not quite working yet. Hope it does.

Cheers,
Patrick.

But, then, name one cool thing Thud has ever done in this strip. Nada. :P

I'm sure that if Jess were white, and all of Candi's other female housemates were visibly nonwhite, Thad would have identified her as the white girl - because he was looking for distinctive things to identify whom he was referring to, and being the only candidate who's white would be distinctive.

Not to mention people are overlooking the "..." which indicates a pause. As in he had to stop and think to remember Jess' name. seriously folks are trying to find some deep meaning at the bottom of a thimble.

He was really into Jess. He asked, she answered no, he moved on. This is the way things are *supposed* to work.

Yet it so often goes one of these ways:

"He asked, she evaded, he asked, she evaded, he asked, she evaded... he finally just quit in frustration."

or

"He asked, she evaded, he asked, she said maybe no, he stalked, he asked, she said no, but he never really moved on..."

or

"He asked, she said get away from me you creepy creepy guy, how dare you ask me out..."

It also goes that when people do what he did, they assume the middle one.
