    Bernice, it doesn’t matter whether a relationship is with the opposite gender or not. It’s still complicated…

    Please, please correct me if I’m reading Bernice wrong – but is she saying that Tiffany likes Gunther? And she thinks Piro has got the hots for Tiffany?

    Hey we agree here. It does not matter the gender make-up, humans have all the same emotions, and they definitely get mixed up totally in relationships. There is no difference between same sex and different sex when it comes down to emotions, love, desire, jealousy, the whole ball of wax.

    Dimwit Bernice. She can’t imagine a lesbian being anything like her. And Pru sure doesn’t mind hearing all about how Quill, who was her friend first, was dumped. Poor Qull. I guess she might end up trying to get Quill and Luann back together—unfortunately.

    Bern’s description of the romantic, heh, quadrangle doesn’t include what she hasn’t grasped… about Gunther ’ interest in her. A likes B and B likes C and C likes D and D likes A. Where have we heard this before? A new theatrical production for The Fuse! “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” starring Bern, Piro, Tiff, and Gunther!

    Berneice doesn’t “barely know” Piro. She doesn’t know him at all. Gunther & Tiffany – however hopeless – has been the most interesting relationship for a while. Going back in time – TJ and AE was pretty interesting…

    I like Bernice’s little knowing joke at the end. She understands that relationships are sometimes hard no matter with whom. I think that these three are now on the road to getting along spectacularly, which is a great development! Pru is a welcome addition to the strip and with her spunky personality should really liven things up and perhaps teach the younger set a few things about life in general. Greg and Karen really pulled one on us here, and that’s a good thing.

    Hey Bern, could you possibly just listen to and support your friend without interjecting your own “boyfriend issues?”

    Which, btw are all in your head. The only true statement you made was that you’re interested in Piro.

    Bernice’s belief that gay relationships would be any simpler seems naive but perhaps understandable. On that score, While some commenters are wondering if Bernice and Pru will “hook up”, I think that would be a poorly motivated plot device. She seemed VERY interested in Piro when he stayed over. Could be bi- of course. What do other readers think?

    Like the strip, but it always takes a snail’s pace to nowhere. Just once, let something nice actually happen…..like having Gunther and Tiffany finally “discover” each other, develop a mutually caring relationship, and be reasonably happy like Knute and Crystal.

    Even best friends dump each other sometimes. I dumped a friend who was abusing her kids. My best friend in high school got another best friend, but we stayed together in our little group of girls. I was more interested in going places with my boyfriend anyhow, but Bernice should understand that there are many types of relationships considering her field of study. There is drama in every kind.

    Dez and Pru would be a lot of fun together: Full of fun, spunk, unconventional in their thinking, and wise beyond their years. They could really teach Lu, Bern, Gunther and Tiffany a few things about life, growing up and acceptance.

    Knute and Crystal haven’t had a story arc since they graduated high school. I think GE’s relegated them to purely background characters, since the traditional pairings with other characters ( Knute and Gunther being pals, Crystal and Tiffany ) are no more.

    @ seismic-2, “leave these three to mope in private”. IE, figuring out & talking thru relationships is unimportant; plot arcs and actions are. I bet women and girls flock to you because you are such a good listener! (gentle irony) . And we bemoan the fact that over half of all marriages end in divorce.

    Bernice wasn’t interjecting anything (this time). This is pretty much an “open forum”, where everyone gets to “spill” a bit. Sometimes it just takes one of the girls to have a problem, and then once they get things off of their chest, then it becomes a “group therapy session”, if you will…

    y’know, there’s a very subtle implication in Pru’s last line, “knowing about girlfriend dramas”, that could be read as meaning she has some point-of-view that is shared with Quill. NOT saying she agrees with him! Just that she’s been on the “other side”.

    Red, get a grip and stop being so judgemental of people you do not even know. For me the participation here offers periodic breaks among work, helping an older family member who has dementia, caring for a terminally ill pet, knowing i am lucky in having a wonderful hubby, and doing multiple chores. So, do not assume that you know anything about what people’s lives are like or why they enjoy community here. I think pretty much all of us are going to turn out to be adults with lives which have their own legitimate demands. If you so greatly dislike that many people enjoy the break of conversing here then you have a really easy solution which will even save you time so is a win-win for your distress: just skip the comments section or stop yourself at the first 15.

    Puzz, when a little kid sees something like that the child just does not know what to do and the fear alone can be paralyzing. Little kids so often can not put together yet what to do.

    Battering relationships happen in many configurations.

    If you folk do not mind i will try to defuse the tension and sadness with a bit of humour that is peripherally related. As is common with families where people have bad allergies Steve and i have a shortcut for referring to having a nasty reaction. We call it “getting hit”. Steve used to be terribly affected by some of the scents in the soap aisle so i would go down those without him. One day he joined me and i got very worried for him, and told him he had better leave that aisle or he woukd get hit. Another woman was in the aisle, and she stared angrily at me as if i was the most perverse being in the world and rapidly exited the aisle. I was flabbergasted and wondered the entire rest of the shopping trip if she was going to reappear w cops at her elbow. Ah, the dangers of family verbal shortcuts!

    “I’m sure, but I am going by apparent demeanor.”Sigh. Fun little puns are shunned by some.Anyhoo — yeah, in terms of demeanor, you’re right. As far as excitement and spark goes, so far he’s rather more like what the name Piro really means: “pear tree.” They’re not all that interesting. Just kinda silently hangin’ around, you know.
