way to put Frank on the spot, Nancy
Frank can be kinda cute sometimes.
Frank: “I don’t need to imagine. She is standing in front of me.”
Hmm, Frank is frankly honest.
APPARENTLY, Nancy doesn’t “hit” on frank or doesn’t feel that Nancy is “Hottie”. How old is Frank?
Frank, what you should have said is:“I don’t need to hope the woman of my dreams hits on me, i get to see the woman of my dreams everyday.” Then put arms around Nancy and give her a long french kiss. If that’s not charming, i don’t know what is.
Frank realizes he isn’t the same hottie that he was 35 years ago, but women usually view a man closer to their age in a different light than they would if they were 35 years younger.
More realistic than the average teen boy.
Wait a minute, Nancy! You DID ask him to imagine it.
This week reminds me of Luann’s college-level psychology paper — “Today I learned that my mom snored.”
We have to excuse Frank he is a little slow. What Frank should have said Nancy you have been the love of my life since we first meet. So I don’t have to imagine because you are it for me.
Frank has trouble imagining something that just happened two seconds ago – a gorgeous woman right in front of him.
Yup, like I said yesterday, Frank is no hottie. Women don’t come to him and flirt. However, a woman who is looking for a stable and settled-down-looking guy, she might pick Frank. Women looking for fun and light skip guys like him. Nancy bartends so it is a sure thing she would attract men – her customers are alcohol-drinking guys. How was THIS guy singled out in her mind? I wonder.
Imagine I was rubbing your nose in it Nancy?
I couldn’t imagine that happening to me either.
Start small, Frank. Imagine Jeremy’s girlfriend from “Zits” hitting on you. Slowly work your way up to attractive.
Many of you have pointed out the obvious – the beautiful woman standing in front of him – but if he was that smart, he never would have laughed at the thought of a man „hitting up“ on Nancy in the first place!
Credit where it’s due: Frank keeps it real, even for himself.
And Frank’s nose becomes longer in the third panel.
No, not emasculating at all, Nancy.
Careful there Frank. Methinks you’re heading into DANGEROUS WATERS.;D
Proof that men don’t always age more gracefully than women.
Nancy set Frank up for that one but he played it well, he is sincerely befuddled, the thought NEVER occurred to him. On the other hand at least Nancy did not get snarky and ask Frank to imagine if Mr Dreamy hit on him……
I was kind of expecting an arc where Nancy got an admirer but it looks like this can be a one week and done storyline unless Nancy’s guy turns up at The Fuse tomorrow or Saturday with some flowers or something to that effect.
Oh oh, panel 2 shows long-term & short-term memories starting to fade!!!
One of Frank’s good qualities. He’s really, really honest ♡. It’s interesting how quick Nancy is at being jealous of an imagination. If any woman (like, for example, Ann Eiffel) were to actually try to hit on Frank… she would slaughter her. Physically and mentally.
The bar patron who paid a compliment to Nancy was a charming man and kind of dreamy. Will Frank offer to hire someone to tend the bar?
How nice of Nancy to keep pissing on his head for no apparent reason..
I’ve seen videos that say 80% of women swipe right on 20% of the men in dating apps. So yeah, an older balding man probably isn’t getting hit on
Again another arc that doesn’t seem to have a point or any amusing end. Yesterday when Luann saying did I just call my Dad a hottie should have been the end.
Face up to the bald truth, Frank! :D
Yes, imagine that!
It happens. My wife and I entered a retail store and approached the jewelry counter. A saleswoman called out my name and told me she used to work in the same building. I had no idea who she was, etc. My wife and I laughed about that incident.
And then there was the time a young, single girl was attracted to me. My wife warned me that time…
Frankly, Nancy, if a gorgeous woman hit on me, I’d feel flattered, but I wouldn’t openly gloat about it in front of my wife.
I can’t imagine any woman hitting on me never mind a gorgeous woman.
Well, can’t say he isn’t humble.
Most women who tend bar, wait tables and serve alcohol to men see being “hit on” as tedious at best. Often it’s just straight up sexual harassment. Greg and Karen appear clueless about our current world. Also this thread just isn’t funny.
Frank’s ability to suspend disbelief is not working.
So are we, Frank. …So are we.
It’s been Frank Beatdown Week so far. Then again, what’s new? 8^ (
“but why do you have to enjoy it so much?” huh?… read…. but why are you a human being?
Just keep digging that hole deeper, Frank!
With THAT hairline and paunch? Never happen. Some women like bald headed men. But a paunch? Not likely.
I feel ya Frank.
I had a GF who was always annoyed by women flirting with me. My reaction was always, “Who? When?”. I don’t do subtle well.
Looks like Frank can accept reality, so the “imagine” could take. And what he comes up with could be a case for “Pan back, waayyy back”.
Frank should take over the evening bar-tending duties some nights. Then he could fish for his own complements. OR Do some flirting of his own. NAH!
The proper response should have been, “Besides you?”
You walked into that one, Nancy. Frank is many things but self-deluded about how attractive he is is not one of them. In reality, Frank being this insecure and Nancy being this nonchalant about it is a weakness in their relationship.
All those men in the world and she slips under the covers with you, bonehead! Sheesh!
Me, too, Frank. And I’m better looking than you are!
Maybe it’s Tiffs Dad (although supposedly he’s away on business) or some other character that will become a storyline
It is not mere imagining, but fantasizing.
Keep it in your pants, Frank.
I would think that she thinks I am just a charming and cute old man just like her dead Grandpa was……
If a beautiful woman was to hit on me, I’d grab hold of my wallet. It is best to know your own limitations.
Right, because paper-thin hair over an empty skull and bear trap where his wallet should be is SOOOOOOO magnetic to women!
If this arc isn’t going somewhere related to the guy at the bar (or else winding up with Frank and Nancy going on a romantic retreat) it really feels like they’ve taken what should have been a one day joke and stretched it out for a week.
poor guy. a good guy but…
I had it happen once. Only cost me fifty dollars and the wallet containing it.
Picked my pocket while I was trying to make sense of the approach.
THEN it made sense.
Pro Tip: Frank, the correct answer is “Only one hottie ever hit on me . . . and I married her!”
Frank is not fundamentally unattractive; he has a dry sense of humor which is fun but It’s about the way he carries himself, e.g. tailored shirts button to his throat suggesting he’s determined to hide every square millimeter of skin from the waist up. To his credit he’s not overweight, but he comes across lethargic, not energetic. I think Frank needs Jack to come into his life, to get him a little more interested in his physical self, get into shape, enjoy life a little more and take less for granted.
Weird dynamics in this comic. Might be going over the heads of most readers.
Actually, it’s her turn to affirm him. He just expressed self doubt, she can remedy that.
If I got hit on, say, in some parts of LA, my first thought would be “Is she really a she?”
Tell us more about Andy Capp hitting on you.
What I think would be a funny way to conclude this arc on Saturday would be for Nancy to tell Frank it was a complement from TJ doing his best “Eddie Haskel” sort of annoying quip.
Been in hospital because you’ll know I would have been all over this, but Nancy is a total hottie, Frank is the best kind of gentle but hot loving and loyal married husband/dad hottie and this is a hilarity ensues piece of sweet romance. There, I’m back!
I was mowing my yard one hot summer, sweating up a storm, a female friend pulled into the yard, looked at me and said “You’re hot!” I thanked her and told her it had been a long time since a woman told me that.
This brings up the point I made the other day. If a woman hit on Frank and he bragged about it in front of Nancy, Nancy would be enraged.
Frank doesn’t look like he’s enjoying the fantasy of a beautiful woman hitting on him, but seems to be wondering why a beautiful woman would hit on him.
His imagination is a bit slow to start up these days.
I sympathize with Frank. Been there, done that.
Gorgeous woman; hit on me? DOES. NOT. COMPUTE!
