I am not pleased with his pose in the third to last panel. It looks so static! Oh well :l
Sigh, I hope this ripping apart of my conceptions of Jasmine with knowledge that I already feared to acknowledge anyways will lead to her image being reforged into something stronger, like a broken sword being reforged in corpse of a pheonix.
(And Jazzie looks super cool playing softball and all refined with her friends)
Ace February 9, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
That’s a lot of stuff for a Freshman, I mean really. Paulo did right, sometimes, you just gotta walk.
twalker500 February 9, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
Well, you can tell that she obviously didn’t mean that. It’s pretty easy to tell she was only caught up in the heat of the moment, since he was yelling at her.
Then again, Paulo isn’t completely at fault. “Love ain’t a one-way street.” Even though Jazzie has a lot of things happening in her life, she still has to find SOME time to hang out with him. That’s just the way it’s gotta be.
On another note, Jazzie looks SO awesome in that first panel. It reminds me of Sandy playing volleyball in “To The Top”.

She’s almost as busy as Daisy
Actually, wait, Daisy has like, 14 more clubs going on than Jazzy does, and she has plenty of time to plan sleep-overs, stay on the honor roll, and hang with Abbey. Jasmine is obviously doing something wrong, here.

Lycan February 9, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
I know she didn’t mean it like Paulo thinks she did, but that’s how things go when you have two emotionally-charged individually expressing their feelings at one-another sometimes…
Jessica U. Ingmann February 9, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
Nice one, Jasmine.
King February 9, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
Ouch on both sides… At least he’s not demanding sex or something…
I’m hoping it works out in the end for their sake :-(
Sandz890 February 9, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
It’s supposed to be static, Taeshi. It’s Paulo’s “Oh.” pose.
Anyway, looks like there was more than we thought to this fight. How sad, for a simple schedule change to go to something like this.
But I’m not surprised. Paulo is an attention *****.
CriticalQuit February 9, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
awww jazz hope she can get back on here feet after a breakup like that my friend ones had one like that she cried for 3 days……
but I guess I see where paulo is commin from but you don’t have to be so mean about it
well at least lucyxpaulo has a chance to come back right
Rae Chan February 9, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
Actually…the pose in the third to last looked fine. Static is good for that kind of reaction. But hey, what do I know?
TurnerClassicNinja February 9, 2011, 12:04 AM EST.
awww, now I can understand Paulo, he just wanted to have more time to be with Jazz

Ho hum. Went worse than expected. They might be broken up…
Hoheh February 9, 2011, 12:04 AM EST.

Noble_6 February 9, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
Someone call the waaaaambulance.
That was pretty low of you though Jazz. Plus I find her logic flawed. Having a lack of extra-curricular activities doesn’t make someone a slacker. They just may prefer other things such as being with friends or spending time on their own personal outlets(hobbies, for examples).
A Dreamer February 9, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
Wow, what a bitch…
Watch, people are going to pin this on Paulo, ‘cause it’s always the guy’s fault.

Isaac February 9, 2011, 12:07 AM EST.
Taeshi, I agree that the one panel looks static, but I’d like to think that you just naturally drew it that way to signify how hurt Paulo was by that sudden comment. Even if you didn’t do it on purpose.
Of course, that’s what I’d say if people were commenting on something I drew!
(Just kidding. If people commented on something I drew, it’d be along the lines of “Oh, would you look at that wonderful… dog? House? Skysc- Oh, it’s a car? I was about to say car! Yeah, it totally looks like a car now that you mention it!”)
… This is an absurdly long post that has nothing to do with cats, and to those who wasted time reading it, I’m sorry.
Tal February 9, 2011, 12:08 AM EST.
PAULO LOOKS LIKE LUCY ON THE 5TH BEFORE LAST PANEL
Also, tae, are you calling third to last panel the one where he is dissapoint (which i called 5th to last) or the one where he’s walking??
Migrant February 9, 2011, 12:08 AM EST.
For the sake of keeping things drama-free, can we just take the middle ground here and say they’re both at fault, here?
Paulo guilt-tripped her, and expected too much out of her.
Jasmine over-reacted, then immediately went on the defensive.
‘Sides, from Jazzy’s reaction to this a few comics ago, this was their first fight, so it was bound to be a little intense. But it’s nothing they can’t get over, especially considering how Jasmine obviously feels genuinely sorry over this; knowing Paulo, he’s bound to feel the same way.
Bubzgonzola February 9, 2011, 12:09 AM EST.
Awww, poor things. The fight wasn’t as explosive as I though it might be, but defiantly left them both with some hurt.
Jax February 9, 2011, 12:09 AM EST.

GoodBurger February 9, 2011, 12:10 AM EST.
Forgive me for paying attention, but Paulo had justified unhappiness and Jasmine was a bit too blunt about them spending time together. And Paulo chose to not continue the fight. Jasmine feels guilty after it. This could be troublesome. Emotion. Anger is an emotion. How often are regrettable statements not partially anger? Oh yes. Very troublesome.
Hoheh February 9, 2011, 12:11 AM EST.
So I see Paulo being a total perv has been slapped, shot, kicked out of the window, catapulted into a nuclear bomb testing site, put on fire, and turned into a fan character for Taeshi and SuitCase to RAGE on? Ah, the drama in character development.
TheLastCreativeName February 9, 2011, 12:11 AM EST.

kdebones February 9, 2011, 12:18 AM EST.
Ok. I am slightly less angry at Paulo. His anger is justified. He just wants to be with his girl but she is always busy. The least Jasmine could do is say cut some of her friend time away to spend time with Paulo

I just caught up and I have to say I agree with most of you are saying. Granted, these are high schoolers… but Jasmine probably should’ve weighed her options to get the most out of the night. It doesn’t look like she’s putting Paulo very high on her priority list. Besides, it’s not like Lucy would care too much.
Poor Paulo… reminds me of my bf when I was running around not paying attention to him…

Leonmaster February 9, 2011, 1:52 AM EST.
Did I not call it? Jasmine said something she didn’t mean. Something she didn’t mean, and that was not rational to say (as A Dreamer stated, a lack of extra-curricular activities does not equate to a slacker), but it’s completely understandable why she said it. She felt like she was being attacked and tried to defend herself. Any one person could have reacted the same way and not been thought of as unreasonable.
What is unreasonable is thinking that the relationship is over because of one fight. Couples fight, and while I will admit that Jasmine and Paulo being teenagers is kind of not in their favor, there are plenty of others around her who can talk some sense into her. Once some time has passed and both of them have calmed down a little, they can talk it out. People say stupid things when they get upset, and in the grand scheme of things, this fight really isn’t that big a deal and may even strengthen their relationship.
The secret to happiness is perspective. Remember that.

Jasmine, if you literally have not even one hour a week to spend with someone you like, either you are overworked, or you simply should not be in a relationship. Paulo, if you cannot accept that Jasmine is driven and responsible, then can she really be the girl for you?
(of course it’s only highschool. but hey, every fight hurts)

Shady Kitsune February 9, 2011, 3:51 AM EST.
Honestly, I understand where they’re both coming from here. She’s not just flaking at least from the sound of it. With that sort of stuff it probably is hard to make time… but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t deserve time.
And that really was just low of her there, I’d be pretty hurt too.
Taeshi: I actually like the pose in the pannel you don’t like. It seems like genuine stun/hurt.
KZero February 9, 2011, 3:54 AM EST.
You really gotta feel for both sides here. I mean she’s got her school life going… but she’s gotta make time for him at some point right? Unless she didn’t think this would last?
I dunno it’s a bit complex I think. Great page though.
Rjpoofy February 9, 2011, 4:02 AM EST.
Cookie February 9, 2011, 4:13 AM EST.
I’m sure Jasmine wants to make time for him, but she has a lot of stuff going on. Sometimes you’re just not able. And, while I agree that wasn’t the best way to react to the whole thing, Jasmine didn’t mean what she said whatsoever. She just didn’t know what to say, how to respond, so the words just left her mouth. You can tell she regretted them the moment she said them.

Not meaning what you say or regretting it doesn’t mean ya didn’t say it folks. People will still be mad/hurt and it did come from your conciousness on some level.
KZero February 9, 2011, 4:44 AM EST.
I think Jasmine will start making a little more free time for Paulo or their relationship will keep decaying and they’ll just break up.
I personally think it will be what McCain’s says earlier in the comic he said something like “teen relationship success is only a small fraction.” or something like that.

Grubey February 9, 2011, 8:06 AM EST.
Itty-Bitty Spider predicts that in the incentive comics, everyone will die in the toilets.
Itty-Bitty Spider finds this outcome strangely acceptable.
Also, today’s comic almost made Itty-Bitty Spider feel sorry for Paulo, but Paulo would be the first one to grind salt into a dude’s wounds in the same situation, so who cares about him.
Itty-Bitty Spider February 9, 2011, 8:12 AM EST.
Interesting of how similar this was to my own high school break up. She had too much going on to the point where we never saw each other. It’s hard for the side not doing anything since you’re forced to realize your partner is busy and active while you try and plan for them. Only in the end for them to turn and say they’re busy. In the end, just like Paulo I did the same thing and never turned back.

on a more “writing wise” note, i think the “i´m sorry im not a slacker” comment would had made more impact “before” the “sunday” remark, after it they had already moved on and the timing seems off, if not read carefully it would seem she thinks he is a slacker because he doesnt go to church or spends time with his family, and it kind of freaked me out a little, i had to analize the situation again, hehehe
and why does she have to be bitchy about him getting mad and going with David!?!?!?
EDIT: I was just reading the messages before me and WTF guys!? how in the world Paolo “Guilt Tripped” Jaz, he just told her he wants to spend more time with HER, because she is ALWAYS bussy, how is that a “Guilt trip”??? did i just missed something in translation, because here where i come from, if my girl doesnt have time to spend with me i tell her about it!
since when saying what “botters” me is giving her a “guilt trip”!?!?!?!?
i know he could have being some more “sensible” while aproaching the subject, but she already knows he talks like that, then why does she gets mad!?!?

oh wow. that was pretty mean for jazzy to say. i feel kinda bad for paulo. :S
lol February 9, 2011, 10:59 AM EST.
You should feel even worse for Jasmine.
Cody February 9, 2011, 11:07 AM EST.
I totally agree with JMOR, Paulo just wanted to spend more time with Jazz, he helped her to get the treasurer place because he wanted to be spend time with her these days, and now she’s totally “busy” she has time to spend with her friends but why not with Paulo? why doesn’t she tries to take some of that “friend’s time” and have a good time with Paulo? or organize with her family too? in this way there can be weekends for Jazz and Paulo but looks like she doesn’t want to be with him

oh the joys of responsibility. It’s hard to find balance…and what your priorities are sometimes. She must realize that by having so many social activites that other things will be sacrificed (i.e. time with Paulo)….unless they have an agreement about spending time with each other…im no so sure its going to work out :\

OUCH, Jazzie! Ouch!
Sure, Paulo yelling is unpleasant but that was a mean insult. It wasn’t even out of frustration.
One of those things could give. Maybe not the clubs but like she can’t schedule Paulo time in between all her friends?
Still, we know it’s not all Paulo. In fact, Jasmine cast the first blow. The ending blow even.
We’ll see what happens next, eh?

DavidOWA February 9, 2011, 3:45 PM EST.
And that can be a relationship breaker folks. He did the right thing in the end and just walked so it didn’t get worse. Funny how I know some women like that and they’ll just be that much occupied with everything else that they completely ignore that special someone. It’s not clingy but that’s the point of caring for someone, it doesn’t have to be all the time but it should be SOME time.

Also, I love panel 5. It looks Jazz is flinching because the text hit her in head.

rocknrollDaVE February 9, 2011, 4:04 PM EST.
damn, this is one of these situations that makes the readers choose sides. Which sucks for me, because I love Paulo and Jazzy. On one hand Jazzy has a right to join school clubs and hang out with family and chiz like that, and Paulo should make time to see her, like watch her softball practices and stuff. But then again Jazzy should have some free time to hang with Paulo. M SO CONFUSED~!!!
G!@nN@ February 9, 2011, 4:05 PM EST.
She clearly cant call Paulo a slacker since he keeps going out of his way to find ways to make her happy and spend time with her, just for her to be too busy. He just has different priorities than her, I wonder how she really ranks Paulo on this scale.

Dark Griff February 9, 2011, 5:20 PM EST.
She looks so cute playing softball in the first panel!
Anyway, I agree that it’s kinda both their faults. Jasmine should try to make room in her schedule for Paulo, but Paulo’s not completely innocent, either. He should have known that Jasmine didn’t mean what she said. I hope they can make up!

Frankly, this is all totally fine by me. Jazz was a mistake to begin with. With Jazz out of the way, maybe Lucy and Paulo will finally be able to get the love they’ve both needed from panel 1.

MissCaitlyn February 9, 2011, 6:09 PM EST.
@Aether I agree. Although, not completely. I don’t think Jazz was a MISTAKE, she added a wealth of drama to the series. But for some reason I cant see, everyone loves her. Also, i do enjoy PauloxLucy, and i think they should date, but i really want the series to end with a whole shipload of MikexLucy<33
MissCaitlyn February 9, 2011, 6:25 PM EST.
Man I hated all those girls who needed to do 5 extra clubs/sports/church/charity/everything in order to feel better about themselves. They always say they can’t get into college unless they do all that extra crap, and I swear they don’t even care about it except for the “college bonus”. Gotta make it look good on the introductory letter, y’know? Jazzy seems like one of those girls. Driving herself to do everything at the expense of just having some fun. Apparently she didn’t care very much about Paulo or that movie she was DYING to see since she flaked him off so fast and without remorse.
Paulo: Completely justified
Jazzy: Take an extra-curricular chill-pill and think about more people than yourself, bitch.
TheEFAF February 9, 2011, 6:34 PM EST.
Yeah, I think Paulo would be completely justified in dumping Jazz, she’s cute and all, but appears to be to self-absorbed to put anything into a relationship. And the Slacker remark was totally uncalled for, not being in EVERY club/activity doesn’t make you lazy or worthless.
Mojojojo February 9, 2011, 6:52 PM EST.
how bad i feel about Paulo. to be a slacker,it just so sad.
he just wanted a little of time with her._.
well, he did the best and say to her that it’s better not wasting her time with friends of her gender. .
Jomacodo February 9, 2011, 6:57 PM EST.
I hear you, TheEFAF. If Jasmine can’t push aside her extra-curricular events, even a few, which are a THING, to hang out a little with her BOYFRIEND, who is a PERSON, then god damnit, she needs to realize what’s more important in her mind, and take measures to keep the things that she wants, even if it requires a little sacrifice of her own HEAPING HORDES of precious time. If she can be so cold to him, and then cry her freaking eyes out over their fight, saying “I DON’T WANNA LOSE HIM BAWWWWWW”, then she shouldn’t have been so harsh to him in the first place, and been willing to stick her neck out a little for him. Sure, Paulo’s a bit of a slacker, and may not be the best student, but god damnit, he has some respect for his significant other, regardless if it’s been a few ladies within a short amount of time. Though then again, Jessica and Rachel were just “a moment”. The other two true relationships, Tess, and Jasmine, he pour(s)ed his freaking heart out for them. And even when Lucy was feeling down, he showed a side of himself that even Michael would NEVER (at least in his own words) be able to show.
Paulo: (You’re right, completely justified) A man with a heart of gold, and one who’s willing to sacrifice himself for his woman.
Jasmine: Needs to understand that just because Paulo has seen some muck in the past, he still has a deep closeness, and protects the ones he holds dear.

Kitsonphone February 9, 2011, 7:35 PM EST.
While it wouldn’t hurt if she dropped one club and she perhaps should have thought more herself- Paulo shouldn’t have been a dick and still is in the wrong in that sense. He should have brought up the issue in a more mature manner etc etc.
Good thing he more walked away than continued yelling- but still, he’s foolish. He seems to have been keepin’ his true annoyance on the issue inside and has not discussed it before- so he’s stupid if he has pulled this. Plus this hasn’t really been mentioned at all (her extra-currics being an issue), plus he ENCOURAGED her in her Treasury campaign, so he seems not to have brought the issue to the forefront all that much, in fact I don’t know if he has at all. Then it seems he exploded. So yeah he’s kind of an idiot.
But then, it’s frickin’ Paulo.
Tip: partners might not catch on unless you tell them. they’re not telepathic no matter oh so ~special~ your relationship is in your head.
Once again, it’s good he walked away than continued yelling, but overall he’s an idiot if he knew there was an issue and then waited until he exploded.

This would be the perfect time for a “Third choice” outcome.
Explanation: A third choice would be an uncommon but expected choice to end a problem.
For example, The first choice would be they brake up.
The second choice would be they stay together, but have some quarrels along the way.
A third choice would be something in the middle. Let’s see…. Oh I got it! a third choice would be that they brake up, but come back together after quarreling with the other person that they chose, but the coming back together would have to be later when you wouldn’t expect it to happen.
Even if it would be temporary. It would get some attention. See? Expected and unexpected.

Alright, I’ll be honest. At first I was on Jasmine’s side, but, seeing this and the previous side… Paulo is being a bit neglected.
Too lazy to write a huge amazingtastical five-paragraph post on why this is.
Frair February 9, 2011, 9:36 PM EST.
Oh hey look, the same thing my friend’s going through. Going out with a girl a year younger then him who’s an overachiever when he’s a slacker. Though the ages are off, she’s 17 and a senior and he’s 18 and graduated.
OpeeFomenom February 9, 2011, 9:52 PM EST.
well isn’t it obviouse, if you can’t spend time with some one, you can’t be there lover, so if it’s not going to work out between them then they should break up, and for all you who think “no way”, or have a simillar real life situation, then think of it like this, if he’s not the right gui, and yet makes her so happy, then how happy would her Mr. right make her feel.
and in case you think this means that SandyxMike should break up, NO WAY, she just needs to take a vacation and visit, or he can transfer to her school, think about it, Mike mooving in with Sandy.
keios February 9, 2011, 9:59 PM EST.
Sheesh. It’s not a bad thing to do things, but she needs to include him in her activities. The reason why strong relationships last 40 plus years is because they do stuff together. Shoot my wife and I do a Tang-su-do class together.
Mason al'Cat February 9, 2011, 10:10 PM EST.
I’m very in favor of PauloxLucy. Paulo being single is a good thing. I should be happy. Why am I not happy? I hope this extra empathy doesn’t leak and make me stop blaming Sandy for everything bad that ever happened; that would be terrible.

Floweramon February 10, 2011, 12:21 AM EST.
As for the 3rd to last panel, people in a shock like that, at someone giving a mild but striking come back, will often tense up and looks slightly paralyzed. Honestly, I see it as good effect.
CJTocean February 10, 2011, 12:22 AM EST.

I really love Paulo’s expression in the first panel on the bottom, you can really see how hurt he is and in a way that he does care for her a great deal that he’s making actual effort.
I feel for him though, been too many times it’s been similar.

You do NOT use that language with a lady, bad Paulo >=C
I can understand getting upset, but no reason to treat someone who is obviously still important to you(otherwise why would he even be upset?) as if one of “the guys” just gave a lame excuse for ditching everyone the day before.

@Floweramon now this isnt about rachel and jess and how they treat tess now is it its about jazz and paulo and had i felt like commenting on how they treat tess i would have.. but in all honesty you should really keep up with the story arc
Lazy J February 10, 2011, 2:26 AM EST.
my boyfriend says that it would be funny if later jasmine catches paulo hanging out with david and a pair of siamese twins that giggle at the end of every sentence.

the background in this looks like it was watercolour’d. I know it’s digital, and I really like how you coloured this. The whole background looks solidly represented in each panel - the fence kind of pointing out the different angles you got goin’ on. i always found doing a background wall or fence to be kind of hard, so good for you.
also uh in the first panel the speech bubble ‘connectors’ outlining the shape of the mini-panels is really clever. i’m sorry i don’t have any good critique so it just looks like i’m hitting on you oops :s

dear god! he was just stating what he wanted, yes, he wasnt really “polite” or “articulate” but that has always being the case, he has always being like that, and she kicks him in the nuts???, she never reacts sarcastic or particularly offensive, and she calls him a slacker?? when he is clearly working towards a relationship with her?? while she just brushes him aside???, yeah, i can see why its Paulos fault, for not telling her “I WANT TO BE WITH YOU” oh! that would make anyone at fault of this situation, but you know what?? yes, it is Paulos fault, if she clearly doesnt want a relationship, why does he keeps being nice to her!?
JMOR February 10, 2011, 10:39 AM EST.
@JMOR:To be fair, emotional counterattack to an emotional attack in her mind. Still an attack in answer to an attack. Both could have reacted better, but canon is as it is, so acceptance is par for the course.

wake up Paulooooo!!!!
ratinhadey February 10, 2011, 11:06 AM EST.
@Hoheh: thats the thing, i dont see what paulo said as an emotional attack, i see it as a cry for attention, everything he said was justified, yes, even the swears, but she went ahead and insulted him personally, while he was just being insulting to the situation
I dont really see how they are “both” at fault…
but well, i would have certainly blown things out of proportion after she called me a slacker, insult to injury, something i hate people do, but he did the right thing and left! he has the moral high grownd, he made the right desitions, he tried to be with Jass…
i mean, all i see here is a guy complaining that she doesnt spend time with him even though he goes trough great pains to acomplish just that and she calling him a slacker because he does have time to be with her.
I dont think Jass wants a relationship that much, where does she puts Paulo on her “priorities” list??, i mean, i know people put a couple in several places, but if paulo is like me, he put her in the top, and if he is the 5fth of her list then that just sucks, and he should have the oportunity to talk about it, and if she doesnt want to change it (calling him a slaker) then he should probably leave her alone and look for someone that can also place him in the top.
call it a difference on culture, i´m from “Mexico” so i´m sure we think differently regarding relationship.
JMOR February 10, 2011, 11:12 AM EST.
@JMOR: Consider the one who did consider it an attack. These are average teenagers. I’m personally of the opinion that two wroongs don’t make a right anyway. Three rights usually do make a left, though.
Hoheh February 10, 2011, 11:37 AM EST.
@Hohen, well, yeah, i know they are teenagers
guess i just cant stand teen drama then, because things feel soo obvious looking at them from my point of view, (i´m 25 btw)
but going back… hehe… i guess i would have done the exact same thing

It’s possible he might end up enjoying the movie with David.
I had something similar happen to me once, my best friend’s girlfriend was too busy to go see a movie so I saw the movie with him. Needless to say, we both enjoyed The Lake House more than we originally planned to

MissCaitlyn February 10, 2011, 3:39 PM EST.
ok what happened
time February 10, 2011, 3:58 PM EST.
Sandy has done nothing wrong. Mike has and Lucy has. This triangle is being focused on incorrectly. When Sandy was around, she invited Lucy. Mike was ignoring Lucy. Lucy became even more abrasive to hide her Mike-like. Then Sandy had to move.
Where in this equation is Sandy at fault? MikexLucy shipper. Hate all this undue Sandy-hate. And Sandy isn’t perfect. She’s an okay student at best and likes modeling much less than her mother.
Hoheh February 10, 2011, 4:11 PM EST.
I still think LucyxMike is best. Not that i hate Sandy i just like LucyxMike. They’ve been friends since preschool, so i think they should be together, although maybe it just hits too close to home with me considering i had the same predicament about a year ago, worst time in life right there i tell you.
Adam February 10, 2011, 5:11 PM EST.
I’ve never really supported MikeXLucy, especially since Sandy came into the picture. Poor Mike, he’s so in love with Sandy and Lucy confesses, and GOD all that pressure. I don’t blame him for ignoring Lucy. Not that it’s her fault, of course not. But I actually like how he’s giving himself time to think, as opposed to just making things the way they were again. (I’m hoping I won’t be eaten alive y MikeXLucy fans here )
wow I spelled my username wrong, sorry, I’m on a different computer
I'MAERSONISWEAR February 10, 2011, 6:35 PM EST.
Here was something I thought about, and why they are so distant. Mike and Lucy used to have a thing for each other, but Mike was sort of getting tired of the mixed messages from Lucy, although he probably knew she liked him. When Sandy once again entered his life, Mike knew that Sandy would return his affection. But since he had to distance himself from his feelings for Lucy, so he convinced himself she only needed him, and did not actually have feelings for him. Lucy ultimately realized she was going to lose him and confessed her love for him, which Mike shot down coldly. Eventually, Lucy became a wreck and sought Paulo out for comfort. Paulo showed that he could be a man, and that he could care. But ultimately, David, Jessica and Rachel ruined it. David provided the peer pressure, while the girls wanted to get back at Tess. When Lucy mentioned them being together for a night, that was all that was needed for Mike to finally sever the link. Also, he was jealous. The double standard had been set- It was perfectly all right for him to be with someone else, but not for Lucy. Funny how that works, huh?
Renadt February 10, 2011, 6:42 PM EST.
Paulo can dish it out, but he sure can’t take it, can he? Jasmine should chuck him and find someone who doesn’t expect her to be a doormat.

ocelot he doesnt want her to be a door mat he just wants time with her, and he had all legitiment reasons to be angry i mean being with someone that active has to grind you down to dust and hey just like me it erupts at once when that final straw of hay comes and thats why he went off and jazz insulting who he was is a major hit because we have all seen that he isnt a slacker as a person yeah he doesnt do extra carucular stuff and has an easy way of lookin at life but he pulls where it counts and insulting his moral was a pretty big his so he should have walked away like he did
walker February 10, 2011, 8:02 PM EST.
Man, I just love this comic. And they need to stop blowing up at eachother and hug or something. I think it would of changed if Jasmine said it was Lucy’s party she was going to….. (I like that face. x3)

Adam February 10, 2011, 8:33 PM EST.
That was a really low blow to Paulo, not gunna lie. It hurts to hear it like that from someone you really care about.
Sup Dwags February 10, 2011, 8:37 PM EST.
It is as simple as them just cooling down a bit…coming to their senses…and then discussing what can be done so that they are both happy (e.g. finding some time where they can be together and having time for their our endeavors). Although, it isn’t as easy as I stated I suppose, lol. We always act on our initial response to an intense situation emotionally, and with time, these responses can be dealt with in a more reasonable manner with experience. It really sucks at first, but if you can identify the problem properly, then it can be dealt with.
I just realized that this chapter is now 50 O_o Jeebus! lol

walker, he was shouting at her. She fired back instead of meekly taking it, he couldn’t deal. It’s a common double standard.
ocelot February 10, 2011, 9:57 PM EST.
I have to say, I find it surprising Paulo knew nothing about lucy’s sleepover. Just because guys weren’t invited doesn’t mean he didn’t see all those fliers daisy was throwing all over the place.
Aethrys February 10, 2011, 10:01 PM EST.
Not all the time. Just a couple times. And he showed to actually be taking an investment in her. Waiting in line for the last two tickets to a movie she wanted to see is not slacking. It was just one time too many.
Renadt February 10, 2011, 10:03 PM EST.
time is all relative I know that but right now it’s being too slow ( this might because I have had too much sugar and caffine today)

@incentive, I hope they dragged Paulo out of there… Someone PLEASE put ****** into the insane asylum immediately!
Sarge February 10, 2011, 10:16 PM EST.
Probably, but if what Paulo said was true (and it probably is), then he just wants to spend time with her. If she never does, then what is the point of a relationship?
Renadt February 10, 2011, 10:17 PM EST.
@incentive continued, Either that or she needs a really big bonk on the head!
Sarge February 10, 2011, 10:18 PM EST.
New page to come. Excitement! x relationship mysteries to be answered? Got me. About Paulo not being able to take what he dishes out, logical failure. He took an honest action based on her words. Excessive? Yes. Justified? Sorta.
About the love conclusions… Rachel isn’t into Lucy, Jess is.
Hoheh February 10, 2011, 10:36 PM EST.
I think Paulo is in the right here this is Jasmine’s fault here she was mean there
Swb1m1 February 10, 2011, 10:47 PM EST.
Paulo was also mean. He had reasons. So did she. What kind of person can’t comprehend how difficult it would be for Jasmine to suddenly be someone else? Still doesn’t excuse her statements, but pre-calling him a slacker, he was mean already. Stop blaming people already. Hoheh~ Iyah~ Hohee~ Neutrality is underrated. That’s…that’s kinda cool.
Hoheh February 10, 2011, 10:53 PM EST.
Going out with friends, but not boyfriend, is probably Paulo’s strongest case.
Hoheh February 10, 2011, 11:08 PM EST.
A lot of the drama in the B.C.B. wouldn’t be hear if It wasn’t for Sandy, If she didn’t love him & vice/versa for her. For ex. if Michael & Lucy were together. Then Lucy would never have gone to Paulo so David wouldn’t have questioned his lady skills: Paulo would not have gone after Jessica, Rachel, & Jasmine so there wouldn’t be that one “”situation”“, Plus If none of that stuff happened then Jasmine would be irrelevant equalling no fight. By this logic I say… It’s all Sandy’s fault!! I’m sure a lot of you have already come to this conclusion. I’m just a new reader & from reading the first to now that’s what I see.
P.S. Taeshilh 2 & 5… really?
JG February 10, 2011, 11:33 PM EST.
Sandy didn’t do anything to cause Mike to be mean to Lucy. He did that on his own. Lucy finally admitted her feelings. That went well. Paulo and Mike conflict fairly consistently. Paulo’s past habits are irrelevant to Sandy. Tess and Jessica has nothing to do with her. This chapter either. She was still trying to be friends with Lucy when they were around each other.
Still say Sandy being blamed is just using her as a scapegoat. The only drama she has ANY part in is Mike and Lucy’s, and she isn’t even aware of Lucy. How could she be the one to blame for trying to keep the one thing from the life she liked? Michael. Still think Lucy and Sandy having a good chat would straighten things out. Lonely girl doing what her mom wants in a place she questionably likes. Not. Her. Fault.
Hoheh February 10, 2011, 11:39 PM EST.
Woah, nice observation JG, you earned yourself a sandvich and a pat on the back.
Sandvich February 10, 2011, 11:44 PM EST.
@JG: You do know Paulo’s feelings of inadequacy came from David making him not able to have sex with Tess, then David picking on that, followed by Jessica and Rachel making him feel bad as a bid to make Tess feel bad, right? Blaming Sandy for everything is not a valid point when you ignore details. And Paulo was pretty much the only non-Mike guy Lucy liked years ago. Seriously.
Hoheh February 10, 2011, 11:55 PM EST.
Jazzy savin dem whales!
Rukral February 10, 2011, 11:56 PM EST.
Damn. Paulo’s tone is one of frustration and exasperation, but is pretty light on anger surprisingly. He doesn’t seem to be blaming her so much as complaining at her.
And oh man, saying deliberately hurtful things to people in a moment of defensiveness instead of admitting when you might be wrong is FUN. Especially when you manage to say something that is particularly hurtful to them in particular because you know them so well. The betrayal of your mutual trust makes it all the more hurtful for them and you!
(I’ve had many an unpleasant argument with family members. That **** haunts you long after they’ve forgotten.)

I can understand her though. She doesn’t have a lot of time. Maybe this isn’t the best time for a relationship though. ಥ_ಥ
blackmage March 8, 2011, 10:27 PM EST.
Also possible to simply mess around with Paulo some of that messing around with friends time.
Hoheh March 9, 2011, 4:23 PM EST.
On the first panel, did anyone notice the part when they say ‘or going out with your friends…’? I mean actually, the background of the S in Friends is quite transperent.
(you!) April 7, 2011, 2:27 AM EST.
I can understand Jasmine. She has things she needs or wants to do. Fine. But she should realize that Paulo isn’t the kind of person who can take something like that sitting down. He’s the kind of person who needs just a bit more attention. Maybe Tess and Lucy spoiled him when it came to that or something? I don’t know. Bottom line, if neither of them are happy, they have no business being with each other.
If they break up, I’ll jump for joy. Why? Because it’s another chance of LucyXPaulo happening, bitches!
NintendoSegaSonyGuy May 24, 2011, 4:26 PM EST.
I dont see Paulo as clingy or needing more attention. He just genuinely wanted to see someone he likes more. There’s nothing wrong with that.
Ven May 30, 2011, 10:48 PM EST.

Whoa there missy, that slacker remark was way way over the line.
Low blow, dear. I don’t blame Paulo for stalking off. He had a completely legitimate complaint and you responded with a personal attack.
