I don’t really remember which comment you’re talking about but it was probably because the person I was responding to deleted theirs.
Abusive? Eric could be somewhat dismissive of her feelings but there was no actual abuse, emotional or not. The most “abusive” thing he ever did was manipulating her into believing his sketchy excuses and you can hardly count that. As for Anthony and Therese, you said it your self she doesn’t know much about the inner workings of the relationship. What she does know is that they are in a relationship which makes her flippant dismissal of Therese even worse. It’s one thing to dismiss your own boyfriend but to ignore the feelings of a girl you don’t even know is twice as bad.
The dialogue in the last strip makes it pretty clear that Liz, at least, sees this as a date. She says yes when April asks if she’s going out with him, and when asked about Eric and Therese, she responds with “they aren’t here.” That heavily implies that she knows what she’s doing is wrong and she wouldn’t be doing it if her boyfriend was around. Remember at this point she has no idea that Eric is cheating on her so she has no excuse.
I mean, this is exactly what happened though. I know this isn’t realistic I just called it because that’s the way it usually plays out in romance plots.
She filled up on the way.
Not sure if I’ll be dancing to this or packing my bags for London but either way, I’ll be on social media all day.
We have enough disasters in the world.
Avoiding ones problems is also a normal reaction to stress but that doesn’t make it ok. In dangerous situations, especially ones where you’re the adult, it’s imperative that you calm down and chose the right reaction, instead of the first thing that comes to mind.
Right poor choice of words on my part. And I might be hesitant to call it cheating, if it weren’t for the Sunday of that arc. April reminds Liz about Eric while she’s getting dolled up and her response is to deflect by saying he isn’t here. This proves that she herself sees it as cheating and does not care.
I find it odd that the GOP decided to rename natural selection. Especially considering that they’d be the first to go.
