    It is amazing how those two stay friends. I am sure they will stay friends, but I’m not sure where the Nil/Bernice pairing will end up. Maybe they will hit it off, but maybe the attraction will not be mutual. I guess we will have to wait and see. The sandwiches look good, but they probably not vegetarian.

    Knowing full well that Bernice has the hots for Jack, Luann shoves Bernice in Nil’s direction.

    One “consolation prize” coming right up.

    Aldo, casual observer could almost present an argument that Luann is keeping Jack in reserve for herself, in case she ever develops deep “feelings” for him. Don’t scoff. She’s done that kind of thing before.

    One more point.

    Nil? “Artsy-smartsy like Bernice?”

    Luann has unfortunately also fallen prey to “Two people MUST have something in common to be together” myth.

    Being “smartsy” didn’t exactly help another guy in the Strip when it came to Ms. Halper. ;)

    Hey Bernice haters, how come you don’t betrate Luann for inciting Bernice into yelling at her for teasing her for talking about Jack in her sleep which is a sensitive matter. She said something she didn’t want anyone to know about. Luann knows she is embarassed about it but she still feel the need to make fun of her. What kind of friend is she? I’d yell too. I’d yell, “How about you?? You hadn’t dated since Quill left. Why is that?”

    First with Ben and now with Nil/Jack. Seems the very safest way for discuss sensitive topics with Bernice (without made her run away) is offering her a meal ♡. Luann probably discovered this years ago and now she masters the technique. Once again, we see how Luann has become a wise girl♡. She can help her friends by giving her great advice and I love this ♡♡♡. And I agree, Bernice can give Nil a chance and see what happens.

    They have Bernice smiling one minute and then enraged in the next. That side view of her when she is biting someone’s’ head off is really annoying and no one would go from calmly eating a sandwich to pure rage like that unless they are totally psycho. My advice is to tone that side view down, it’s not believable. At least they quit having food spitting out of Luann’s’ mouth when she eats, that’s an improvement.

    Right now? I’m not sure of anything as far as relationships are concerned in this strip. Even Nancy is flirting with some lush at The Fuse. Brad better keep an eye on Toni at the station because there’s a lot of stuff that goes on off-strip.

    It looks like this “date” with Nil is going to happen. There does seem to be a shortage of male characters where Luann and Bernice are concerned. Gunther is still not totally free of Bets in that arc. Jack is a “player” and free spirit as much as anything and not hookup material for anyone. So GnK have resurrected Nil for Bernice after two years in limbo! Several commenters have indicated that they’ve never even heard of him.

    As far as outcome; Bernice and Nil are both “cerebral” types, but the similarity ends there. How is Nil supposed to woo Bernice away from her infatuation with Jack, you may ask (I do)? GnK will have to play mind-bender to pull this relationship off.

    Some folks have expressed a desire for Knute and Crystal to reappear. Well they just might get there wish in Nil and Bernice.

    Hat’s off to Peter Pirate who, yesterday, speculated that this was Luann’s idea all along. While it is still not entirely clear whose idea this was, clearly, Luann and Jack worked on this together. And the more Luann talks, the more it sounds like she was the brains behind this caper – Jack was just an accomplice.

    In the meantime, both Bernice and Luann are still in hot competition to see who can be the most unlikable character in this comic strip.

    Words of wisdom from Luann today. It would behoove Bernice to accept what Luann is saying… because it is spot on.

    It is quite humorous that Bernice thinks the only reason Luann may know of Bernice’s desire for romance…. is because Luann has heard Bernice’s “dreaming noises” through the walls. The humor is that Bernice does not recognize that her desire for romance…. and hell, most of her feelings….. are projected through her facial expressions and body language. Bernice believes (incorrectly) that she is able to mask her emotions with the “clinical” posture and “scholarly” demeanor she always tries to adopt.

    That she is not able to see that her true emotions still shine forth even though she tries to mask them…. is a somewhat endearing aspect of the naivety of youth…. especially in a person who tries for a rather stoic demeanor like Bernice.

    I think as Bernice continues to grow and mature, she will become more comfortable in her own skin and better realize that while she will of course want to and will be professional in her demeanor in her future career, she must also accept that her emotions are still a part of that…. and are a part of all facets of her life.

    Today’s panels remind me again of how Bernice and Gunther seem to share quite a number of emotional traits:

    1. They both tend to be rather reserved about their emotions.

    2. They both have a tendency to try to mask many of their emotions (not always particularly successfully, of course).

    3. With both of them being rather traditionally “nerdy”, both have had a tendency to feel like an “outlier” to some extent.

    4. Both have exhibited greater than the average number of worries/fears/anxieties about dating and romance compared to other characters in the comic.

    5. When pushed beyond their capacities… both can have a tendency to respond in a rather “biting” fashion.

    Both Bernice and Gunther are great characters…. and in my opinion, they really do represent quite well, their archetype.

    I find it interesting that the majority of men in Bernice’s life have come from the Community College rather than her (presumably much larger and more prestigious) own university. I know Luann’s her friend but wouldn’t she have met a larger group of people in her own school by now?

    To be fair, Bern also listens (or hears) through the wall. her listening resulted in suspicions over Jack followed by confrontation at the Fuse. Pipe makes a good point that both Bern and Gunther tend to “bite” when they feel emotionally cornered. So they would not make a good pair. We don’t know much about Nil but it appears he could be the more reserved of the two, i.e. in the event that they end up dating.

    I agree with SD’s comment—and others of the same ilk—that this date with Nil was at least discussed and possibly planned between Lu and Jack. Nil is shy, which leaves room for lot of interesting personality traits on his part, brain wise, while Bernice is very defensively repressed. Together they might be a good fit (cool it you drooling old codgers).

    Bernice as a psychologist could successfully teach her patients how to do a cleansing rant. She could develop a whole new psychological treatment theory based on verbally attacking anyone who crosses your imaginary “line”. She could call it the “That’s Enough Of That Theory”, write a book and go on lecture tours. All the while enabling her followers to shout down anyone who has an opinion they don’t agree with. I like it!
