Paulo needs to learn to mind his business if he starts to intervene. Him stepping in will make it a thousand times worse than what it is with unnecessary asshatery and drama. Daisy needs to find out where her feelings and priorities lie, else she’s not going to he able to go beyond the next step with abbey - which isn’t sex, its love. Its fine to be in relationship and not be in love but it has to be a mutual understanding between the two, and that’s something that isn’t there … but can be resolved if done right. Here’s to hoping.

I knew it, I knew it and I knew it.
Really to be honest Abbey is probably making a good decision here, no matter how much I love this pairing. If his love for her isn’t reciprocated then why be in this relationship?
Argh this is so hard to watch though.. You can tell Abbey is struggling with having to do this and Daisy is crushed.. Though I feel like she’s going to self evaluate and realize he’s right.

“Oh my gosh what did I say…” ;_;

To be honest, I didn’t think their relationship would last forever. Daisy has been too fixated on Mike for so long now. Nothing with Abbey changed that, or will change that. The crush on Mike lasted too long. I don’t think this break-up is going to support Abbey’s mental stability, much less Daisy’s need for attention. Maybe this is where Augustus makes an apperence, you know, since he shows up when girls are sulking in a sentimental state. I can see Daisy and Abbey walking away in the next couple of pages. Pretty intresting that this chapter is called “take heart”, if you think about it.

I actually think Daisy doesn’t know how she feels - she doesn’t want to say “I love you” to Abbey unless she’s absolutely sure. I think she does, but upon analysing it she doubts.
In a way, she can’t lie to him.
I don’t see why people are saying “she deserves this” - she’s not trying to be hurtful - the opposite. She probably needs time alone to suss out what she’s feeling.
Look at her body language here - she’s distraught that she has hurt Abbey. She is young, she needs to learn.

Comment ID #274885

@Tails: The problem is that she got plenty of time to think about that since their relationship started. She had good intentions and really supported him a lot but as she doesn’t even love him back, so what’s the point to keep on? She, without intention, was using Abraham as rebound, replacement, consolation prize. It’s really sad, to see a couple with an one-sided love.

And this was particularly difficult for Abraham since he loves her deeply. Breaking up with her required a lot of courage. He’s completely heartbroken, maybe even more than Daisy.

Neither Daisy and Paulo are ready for a relationship. Otherwise will just keep hurting everyone around them.

HAHAHAHAHA YES FINALLY!! its about freaking time- some people may think me cruel but let me explain

i liked abbey from the very beginning. i also liked daisy. but the moment they got together i was like “oh dear this ship will sink if daisy doesnt get her heart strait” which only kept getting proven throughout the series. But it was like “whatever, theyre not really serious yet but i still wish she could at least not make him second best” but in the back of my mind i just wanted this ship to either end or daisy to get over mike. I didnt care which one happened cause both could lead to good things. Then came the chapter about the condoms BROUGHT UP BY DAISY making it a year long possibly very serious relationship. that was when i was like “DUDE ABBEY RUN” lol jk but i thought this matter in this page should at least get touched on. AND IT HAS AND DAISY SEES NOW AND IM SO HAPPY! this will probably last until wednesday when taeshi finds yet another way to either replace my happiness with angst or show something new that will change my mind XD (maybe daisy will finally get over mike?) either way loving th page awesome job B)

Well you cant force who you love. Mike doesnt see her the way she wants him too, so she did kind of just have Abbey as second choice. Abbey does love her, he said it the day they got together and those feelings had to grow even bigger since its been close to a year now. Daisy doesn’t love Abbey but she does care for him. I want to get mad at her, but it isnt her fault, you cant force feelings. I feel terrible for Abbey, it isnt fair to him but you cant hate Daisy for this. At least it was said before things got too serious.

Jinx February 10, 2014, 1:55 PM EST.

Comment ID #274900

I don’t know why people keep blaming Abbey. He was just being honest about how he felt, and Daisy wasn’t. She probably didn’t mean to but if through all this time she still doesn’t love Abbey, and cant even say it, then she wasn’t being honest to him, or herself in this relationship. Abbey probably didn’t realise himself how strong of a crush she has for Mike when they got together. The idea was probably, Daisy would learn to love Abbey since they would be together for so long. Which obviously isn’t the case. Daisy isn’t a bad girl, but she sure makes some bad decisions.

Comment ID #274907

I think Abbey did the right thing! Yes he is basing the outcome of their relationship by saying Daisy should love him, but they’ve been in a relationship for like a year or something? If they’ve been in a relationship for a year and she hasn’t said that she’s loved him, then it’s not a very good relationship.

Abbey loves her very much, but all she can say is that she ‘likes him very much’ which isn’t good enough because it’s just making him feel like she never loved him like he thought. In my eyes, he’s just her rebound to try and get over Mike, which isn’t going to happen unless she realizes that as long as Mike is with Sandy, then she has no chance and she should forget about him in that way and try to patch things up with Abbey, the one guy (who wasn’t creepy) who truly loved her.

I doubt Augustus has a chance with her unless she’s so distraught she does something stupid and goes off with him.
Even Lucy advised her not to hurt Abbey because of her crush on Mike.

@ Jonas97face I think Daisy and abbey would make a better brother sister relationship then a love relationship. I’m sure Molly would approve :smirk: :P. But seriously Daisy ****ed that **** all up. That was a worse answer then the fist time. It’s missing some likes in there this time. Sue would be the best to talk to or jess ,tess or even Rachel. Daisy is really confused about this so I’m going to say she is indeed clueless about accidentally using abbey as a consolation prize and not being a bitch by knowing what she was doing. Hopefully girl talk opens her eyes to this so she can fix it before it’s to late.

Bah. These kids are still just that they are- Kids.
The “This is it, either now or the end of the world” mentality is getting ridiculously out of control. :I
Daisy needs this to happen, regardless. She needs to wake up and see she’s not doing herself any favors by acting the way she has been. Drunk or not. It’s been a repeated offender for the duration of the relationship. Sucks for Abby though. Dude’s been through more than enough. But at least he has the head on his shoulders to know not to tolerate it. I just hope he has good friends that will keep his spirits up later.

..We all know that Daisy’s group of friends won’t let him live it down.

@ Tails but it only took Daisy like 5 seconds to say I like you very much. She didn’t really need to do much thinking about it since her feelings haven’t really changed since they got together it would seem. That’s probably how abbey took it.

And the ship has capsized and sunk. But in all seriousness I’m on board with Abbey here. He’s doing the right thing. He gave Daisy a chance to be completely honest and she was. But just liking someone very much is not the same as loving someone with all your heart. They’ve been dating for MONTHS. If Daisy doesn’t love him now, she never ever will. Abbey may simply not be the right guy for Daisy. She needs a moment to reconsider her feelings. There’s an old saying. If you love them, let them go and if they come back it’s meant to be.

Still I can’t help feeling sad for both of them, that hope spot Abbey had and the way Daisy looked at the end really killed me. But feelings, like love aren’t things to messed around with.

Again now paulo and Abby have something in common, both of the girls they love want mike more than them…and you know what I’m starting what paulo Ben taking about when it comes to mike, its not like I hate mike or anything its just…

Well first example is back when mike first said that Lucy used him as a security blanket.But when you think about it didn’t HE use HER as security blanket? Remember that flashback that Lucy had about Mike stealing her first kiss then she rejected him,then in 3rd grade he traded up for sandy and forgot all about Lucy,then after 3rd grade ended and sandy left and somehow he got Wrapt up in a long distance relationship but still then forgot all about her and went back to Lucy and then started to compete for her affection.

Then after a phew years when he finally did get her to love him, his perfect supermodel girlfriend came back into his life, he once again threw her to the side. Now he’s with said girlfriend even though she has no IDEA about the girl he had on the side and the fan club of admirers that all apparently still have feelings for him.

And that is basically the summery of what’s going on with Mike a teen age heart throb thats never known heartbeak unlike some of the other characters.

I think most of us saw that coming from light years away, though some of us (me included) were hoping that Daisy would, eventually, get over Mike by having a serious, real, relationship with a guy that really cared for her.
Sadly it didn’t went that way, sucks for Abbey though, but he showed some serious balls and self respect by addressing the issue and giving Daisy “freedom of action”.

Abbey’s always been kind of a jerk, and I can’t say I agree with his policy of “oh you like some other guy so you can’t possibly like me”. I also know Daisy could really do better as far as boyfriends go, but it’s still pretty painful to break up.

As much as I love Daisy… I’m just gonna have to side with Abbey on this one. Good job, Abbey, this was probably the best for them, after that night anyway. Honestly, it was kind of a shocker for me, I mean, I shouldn’t be surprised, but still. Anyway, I wonder what Daisy will do next. Personally, I kinda hoped that Daisy did develop some feelings for Abbey in some way, they were together for quite a long time, and went through a lot of Abbey’s issues together. It just feels so weird to me, that after all of that, she STILL prefers Mike. Well, I’m sad they broke up, because unlike the other couples, they were really each others rock in some ways.

It’s a shame, but kind of unavoidable given that it’s Abbey we’re talking about.
Daisy can’t just stay alone until she’s over Mike, when and if that happens; that isn’t fair to her. But the guy she was with had his home life destroyed by infidelity.
Maybe another boy could have been more patient with her, and maybe someone more confident and charismatic could have even drawn her attention away from Mike.
But Abbey didn’t have a chance at making it through this unhurt. He was just a sad little dude clinging to a love he couldn’t win. The poor brown sap.

@love/hate/hurt:
Mike kissed Lucy during the 7th grade. Mike fell in love with Lucy (at first she was just a replacement for Sandy but when Lucy told him off he saw Lucy as herself) but Lucy didn’t return the love to him. When Mike stopped showing interest towards Lucy, Lucy started showing her love towards Mike, but it was pretty much too late.

And what’s going on in Mikes heart might be awful. He could be experiencing a lot of heartbreak. We don’t since we skipped a month of the story (or something like that). He could be feeling really depressed and sad but he doesn’t want to show it since he feels he doesn’t deserve to be pitied.

Abbey does have point on this one. He may take himself too seriously most of the time, but in this case it’s somewhat warranted. I mean like, why would he want to waste his time any longer on someone that doesn’t feel the same way as he does coupled with the lack of any reasonable hope of that ever changing?

@Tails

I gotta slightly cosign this, man thats why I feel so torn about it. Onnnn the one hand he is 100% right why be in a relationship if you’re pinning for someone else and don’t care. BUT on the other he didn’t even give her a chance to compose herself and respond, and it was pretty much set up as an ultimatum type situation “Either you choose me or you lose me”, unless she said she loved him he was gonna just walk away. Not really mature imho, maturity would have at least tried to talk about this (after letting her know what she said so she wouldn’t just be left thinking she did something horrible). I can understand why he didn’t though it just hurt too much to admit/come fully to terms with it, and he didn’t want things to get really serious with her being only half hearted. But at least hopefully, she’ll do some serious soul-searching and finally fully let Mike go an move on. I just hope she doesn’t spiral out of control and do something crazy. -_-

@MigBird

I think it could have worked out better if he’d have been just a LITTLE more patient/mature about the whole situation. Honestly I think they’re both just too immature to deal with this right now, if he wasn’t even willing to have a honest conversation with her about it. I strongly doubt he’d be willing to trust her even after she was over it, which is sad seeing how good they both we’re together. I think Daisy could get over Mike alone but she probably would have done so much faster in a relationship. Hopefully they can both get themselves together and not all self destruct.

Actually this whole thing makes me wonder if he really loved Daisy or if he really needed/wanted to be needed by her? Aka was this a deep love or some kinda shallow love? :?

He meant more to her than anyone else who isn’t Mike. You have to remember, Daisy can’t control who she has feelings for. She has the option of being alone forever (or until Mike stops being so lovable) or trying to forge a relationship with someone else. Abbey might be the Silver, but the Gold is locked away in a cabinet even Daisy doesn’t have the key to.

:/ All Daisy had to say were 3 WORDS. 3 WORDS. “I love you.” Team Abbey FTW. Abbey has the right to feel the way he feels. Why continue being with someone who doesn’t even like you? And in Daisy’s case it’s Mike. Abbey was the one to actually notice when Daisy was missing, told her stuff he wouldn’t tell to others painful stuff in fact!, and he rescued her from almost being raped by Augustus. Did Mike do that? No. Did Mike even notice her? No. Why pursue a guy who doesn’t even realize you’re there when you literally have the greatest guy right in front of you. Daisy you literally had this coming.

He made a good decision. If they had gotten serious (Started having sex. I mean, that is her definition of ‘getting serious’, right?), it wouldn’t be fair for either of them. She would still be pining after Mike, he’d be falling ‘more in love’ with her, and all it takes is one slip-of-the-tongue while in the sack and things would’ve ended worse.

I really help Daisy gets her head sorted and realises what Abbey means to her. What she has towards Mike is a form of Infatuation, whilst what she has with Abbey is clearly special. She cares for him and she knows deep down she has feelings for him but can’t push past her crush on Mike. I think this will hopefully allow Daisy to put things into perspective and see who truly matters to her and she will learn to appreciate Abbey. This break will be good for them.

If Daisy doesn’t learn a lesson and tells Abbey that she loves him by the end I’m going to rage.

With them broken up Daisy may pull away from the group and Abbey has no real reason to stay, Paulo will probably go off looking for her, and David will just follow him. Sue probably has (if she remembered what he said about Lucy) already left, and Rach/Jessica probably wouldn’t stay once Paulo was gone.

@Cassidy

Yeah what a dick. Abbey should be with a girl who loves someone else. What an *******.

Do you even listen to yourself? They’ve been together a year! If she doesn’t love him now, there isn’t any feelings or chemistry there. When you really fall in love, it does not take that long. It’s either there or it isn’t.

@Samm-y

Samm-y, Sammy! Patient? It’s been an entire year! No matter what age, that is a LONG time to spend waiting on someone. Abbey was being mature. He looked and said, do or die. Has anything changed? Daisy said no. Thus, he’s looking to end the two of them. Good for him. They are young, and Abbey was right! Daisy wanted to push things, no strings attached, no love just this weird dependency. Abbey obvious wanted differently. He wanted her to love him first and him alone. So he breaks it off before they get more serious so he doesn’t set himself up to get hurt.

Why should Abbey carry Daisy along to spend up her recover? That’s Daisy’s job! And if a year couldn’t do it, who says two years or more would help. Daisy is not Abbey’s responsibility. She needs to grow up and sort herself before moving on. Otherwise what Abbey did will be a pattern for her, and he WAS patient.

When you really love someone, saying it can be as easy as breathing. If you still are struggling with it, it’s very possible you never loved them at all. Otherwise you wouldn’t hold it back.

You just know. And the first thing you do is tell them.

Love’s fair wonderous! It’s only as “serious” and awkward of an idea as you make it out to be. Our dumb generation tends to associate love with forever. They think if I say it, I have to mean marriage, kids, white-picket fences! Blah blah blah.

That’s just not true! Love can be everlasting, but it can also be short, simple, happy, painful, and many thoughts inbetween.

I’m disappointed Daisy didn’t even settle for, “I love you as my friend.”

At this point Daisy can:

b) do something desperate
c) do something stupid

Since a) would be something people are predicting, it’s less likely to happen. Also it’s BITTERsweet candy BAWWWl lately. Lucy already did b) so it would be repeatetive. So I guess we’ll see more of drunk/Augustus influenced Daisy. I wouldn’t be suprised if she’ll end up having a one night stand with Paulo

Interesting that many feel Daisy should love Abbey, or perhaps is even obligated to (though I haven’t read all the comments, so I imagine there is a great variety of opinions). I don’t blame her for not loving Abbey. She obviously cares for him a great deal, but perhaps as more of a good friend than a romantic/sexual partner, and that’s okay.

I’m not surprised about the breakup (I imagine many weren’t) and can’t really blame either one, though I do think Abbey should’ve given her a chance to actually speak. A good, long talk could do wonders for these two, and I don’t know that we’lll see it happen.

Hopefully they’re both able to recover and move on. Hopefully.

Anyone defending daisy and calling abbey a jerk , and telling him why is he ruining a “perfectly good ” relationship , needs to realize that A : daisy’s feelings for mike are stronger than her feelings for Abraham . If mike were to pass by and tell daisy that he is in love with her and that he was completely wrong about Lucy/ sandy , Daisy would drop abbey faster than you can say quidditch. Lets look back to the sleepover with Lucy , daisy learnt that Lucy was hanging around Augustus and daisy felt jealous because she felt daisy was stealing all the guys that paid her attention . even though she already had abbey, daisy wants attention , she wants to feel older, and not feel like everyone’s little sister . And she wants to do it because she feels thats the only way at a chance at getting mike, and looking at the party , she show her true colors when it comes to how deep those feelings go and when abbey asked her about it now , her first response wasnt if she did something bad to him , no it was if she had KISS mike. And when abbey told her no she didn’t look relieve. She look disappointed , lets face it this ship was the titanic from the start and daisy’s feelings for mike were the ice berg that sank it ,

Okay, they’re both being idiots here. Honestly, who the hell says “I like you very much” in response to “I love you?!” Furious Abbey
Also, Abbey shouldn’t be so pressing for her to love him. Sure, he’s saying that he can’t force her to love him, but it’s obvious that she’s simply not ready for that type of relationship. Honestly, if I were Daisy, I probably would’ve reacted the same. She’s not ready to say she loves him, and he should respect that. ;)
Now, I’m not saying Daisy is doing the right thing here. Really, she should’ve said that she likes him a lot, but she’s not ready to say it yet. She should’ve said something like, “You know I’m not ready yet, Abbey!”
Point is, they’re both being stupid here.

i don’t understand why people are saying Abbeys being a jerk. clearly doing this hurts him, but if he feels he cant have a serious relationship with Daisy then whats the point? i feel like he should have waited though. maybe just a while longer, talk to Daisy, give her time to know if she really loves him or just “really like” him. and if not, THEN end it. either way, what Abbey is doing is very fair, and even mature.

I have that weird feeling that Daisy is just afraid to put all her eggs in one basket. Being a girl who never got her feelings reciprocated during highschool and then finally getting a relationship it can be hard to admit you love someone enough to say it. I think Daisy might, subconciously, be afraid that shes gonna get hurt, probably due to Augustus, or that Abbey isnt in as much as she was. Another thing that sucks is if Abbey hasnt said “I Love you” prior it may be difficult for Daisy to do it now because she feels defensive. Its a hard place to be for both of them. She probably does love him but is scared to ACTUALLY be with someone. Daisy needs to figure out her feelings and its within Abbeys right to walk away right now. I do think they need to have a calmer talk as to why Daisy isnt there yet because there might be underlying reasons why shes afraid to say it. Who knows.

Wait, she wanted him to take her V card, but she wasn’t sure she loved him? What the actual ****, Daisy. Seriously. I realize Paulo is like that. I realize Rachel is like that. But I swore that Daisy acted like she was above doing things like that (not saying it’s a bad thing to do, it’s just how she acted). She acted like them having sex would be the next step in a *loving* relationship. Now we find out she still isn’t comfortable saying “I love you”? Jesus freaking Christ.

A part of me wants Daisy to fight for Abbey but she seriously needs time to sort herself out without anyone’s influence. I really hope she doesn’t go to Paulo cuz he’s been such an immature drama queen lately (who i kinda feel is using Rachel) If she really needs someone to go to right now I’d want her to go to Sue.

Abbey did the right thing. He used to be okay with Daisy settling for him because he thought over time she’d come to love him - and that’s a gamble he knowingly chose to take. But it’s been a year and her feelings haven’t changed. That’s long enough. He’s right to break it off before he falls any deeper.

Daisy also did the right thing by being honest. It isn’t a matter of saying the words, but a matter of feeling them. She started dating Abbey thinking the same thing - that over time her feelings might change. They didn’t, and that’s fine. She wasn’t leading him on, and Abbey isn’t entitled to her love because he loves her. Thank goodness she was honest instead of being desperate enough to lie.

I hope they don’t get back together. Yeah, Abbey was a loving boyfriend, but he’s too unstable - Daisy was always pulling him back together, taking care of him. Daisy gave him friends, Daisy coaxed him into therapy, Daisy won the student elections for him… Abbey “saved” her from Augustus by breaking down and making Daisy mad at Augustus for being a jerk. Daisy wants to be a doctor. What does Abbey want to do?

Don’t get me wrong, it makes me happy to support my man, but I love him because I trust him to take care of me. I know he’ll find a way to make things work - and if he doesn’t, chances are I couldn’t either. He’s not perfect and he can’t do everything, but he’s *at least* as capable as I am, if not more (albeit in different ways).

There are a lot of guys in my life where it’s the other way around, where I’m coaxing them to apply for jobs or being a talk therapist. They’re wonderful guys and super-fun to hang out with and I hope we stay friends for life, but there’s no romance from my side.

Oh man…this is eerily close to a conversation I had quite a while back with my (then) girlfriend. We managed to work it out then, but this kind of situation can happen.

I don’t actually blame Abbey for his decision. I don’t think the couple has actually managed to get past the whole “really really like” aspect of their relationship…which is strange, considering how long they have dated. Abbey knows that Daisy’s heart’s in two places, so he’s doing this (he feels) in order to let her be truly happy.

I feel really bad for Daisy as well, because we know that she really REALLY cares about Abbey (daresay loves him), but she also really REALLY cares about Mike. The fact that she didn’t truly say much of anything about this to Abbey is enough to cause a bit of a rift. I think she hoped that her feelings for Mike would fade, but truth be told, they never did.

Because of this lack of communication, I can’t really get mad at either Abbey OR Daisy. If anything, it’s a shame to see them split like this :(.

Or that she only wanted to use him for comfort sex. XD

@ KTA

Exactly. Abbey has the right to walk away from a girlfriend who loves someone else more than him. Daisy was honest about her conflict of interest.

This relationship ended in the most succinct and least painful way possible. And it did have to end.
A house divided cannot stand. To make a relationship work, at least one of the members must be able to support the other. Daisy took on Abbey’s psychological problems in hope that she could help. She tried to be the stable member. Unfortunately, she has her own problems. In the end, Abbey had to deal with Daisy’s problems too. He was overloaded, unhappy and uncomfortable. Now he ends the relationship because it brings neither of them happiness. Is there any better reason?

Well, I suppose she could be using him just as a relationship to fall back on instead of who she wants, but for a whole year? I think she honestly does lov—er, really, really like Abbey. I don’t peg Daisy as conniving. My post was more my reaction to Daisy either lacking self-reflection (asking herself if she should be thinking of having sex with Abbey if she can’t even feel comfortable saying “I love you”) or being too self-involved as to think that her actions and words actually hurt other people. I guess I never really thought of Daisy as not having much introspection or forethought, so this reveal of her character is not something I was expecting. And, quite frankly, I’m disappointed. I guess I never thought of her as, well, childish.

The colors in this chapter have been bothering me as well. Daisy is very washed out and Abbey is an odd dark brown. I don’t think Taeshi needs to stop watercolors, but I do think the black outlines and the colors on the characters looked much nicer last chapter for sure. I won’t knock her for trying something new, but I don’t think this new style is working very well so far.

@Ravako

WHY? She is the most childish person of the series! She practically throws herself at “Mikie” in that prom chapter, “Love my way.” and literally tries to force him into putting up with her love attempts. She goes and trusts Augustus who practically wanted to assault her, she goes here to jump all over Abbey but she still really wants Mike.

She has a really immature view on what she needs to be popular, which is why she goes and sucks up to Katie. She’s constantly whining about not having anyone, when clearly people like her, she just can’t hide her Mike-lady-***** long enough to reciprocate.

She needs to seriously grow up. And stop being so selfish and pig-headed. You can’t always get what you want. But she feels entitled to Mike, endless male attention even when she’s taken (like Augustus), popularity, and a hotter body.

She’s got all that supposed brains, but we constantly see her trying to dumb herself down to such a shallow, needy, and unflattering level. It’s what she wants these days. Literally female objectification.

Yeah, you’re right. I guess I never put a lot of thought into her character, or her childishness never really had TOO much of a punishment before. But, yeah, she’s always been pretty childish and selfish. I guess I got caught up in her being kind that I forgot she still could have a pretty big character flaw (or two).

Also, I’ll admit it’s nice just talking rather than the @Name thing meaning someone’s callin’ you out and wants to yell at you. So thanks. :)

I think that it’s partially both of their faults.
Daisy shouldn’t have started going out with Abbey while still having feelings for Mike, and she can’t bring herself to say “I love you” to him after being with him for a year. However, Abbey should have known better than to settle with a girl who just “really liked” him instead of loving him. He should also have realized that he would always come in second after Mike. These two, now that I look at their relationship over time, were more like supportive siblings to each other than boyfriend and girlfriend. Sure, Daisy did support Abbey at times when he really needed it, but they never really seemed to have the same kinds of feelings for each other. Daisy and Abbey should have discussed the “Mike issue” when they first started to date, instead of leaving Abbey to discover it from a drunken Daisy, who would have NO regards as to how Abbey might react whatsoever.

@ Lickit&stickit I find your thoughts on Daisys being a master manipulate bitch stupid. Daisy did not make a plan to use abbey and hurt him while she kept thinking about mike. You even say she is the most immature out of the group. I still believe she is just to stupid to see what she did. Some people really are that oblivious. She was completely oblivious of mikes rejection till as you said she threw her self on mike and got thrown of. Then complete oblivious to abbeys feelings for her. All the main characters have made horrible mistakes but not on purpose. It just kinda spirals out of control until it blows up in there face. I don’t know. Try as I might I can’t see Daisy as anything more then a smart immature sweet clueless loving oblivious little girl.

Comment ID #275051

@Blue fox

I mean I particularly think that you seeing Daisy as completely innocent in all this is really blinded. You are ignoring a large part of her obvious character throughout the comic. I think the negatives of character come out strong when there is something they are after. In Daisy’s case, it’s Mike, popularity in the school, and her image to others. All of which in any time we Daisy’s POV, it’s all she thinks about, think Augustus arc. “I deserve, I’m really better than everyone. THEY don’t deserve the attention like me. Maybe I’m selfish, but it’s not fair.”

And I don’t think sweet people string others along, or try to force themselves on taken people after said people have repeatedly stated their disinterest, or try to take advances and advantage knowing how much someone cares (Abbey did say i love you in that image someone posted above). I don’t think sweet people feel entitled to someone’s affections, attention, or respect without earning it.

Come on Blue, if you are going to flat out reject my thoughts, at least have the decency to back it up with something. I supported my claim throughout this page and the last with points and parts of the comic that reference Daisy as very manipulative and selfish.

You are entitled to feel however you do about Daisy, but at least support it with something other than “I don’t agree with you so it’s stupid.” :/ Have some tact.

Sure Daisy didn’t mean to intentionally hurt Abbey like a psycho.

She didn’t wear an evil mustache for this plan or realize the extent of how rude it was to treat Abbey that way. But the guilty look on her faces says it all. She’s been found out, and she can’t weasel her way out to keep Abbey’s affections while she substitutes him for Mike. She used Abbey to prove to others, especially Mike, that she was desirable. And she was planning to use him to prove her maturity by rushing things. It wasn’t about Abbey, it was appearances for Mike.

@L

Taeshi is not like Daisy. I’m not sure what exactly you are implying. :question: I actually find her diary heartbreaking and very relate-able in a lot of ways. More of a vulnerable display of depressive tendencies than anything else. She needs a hug and a friend. And suitcase to be with her wherever she is.

I can’t really analyze someone like that because people are a lot more complex in reality than in a comic. In a comic you know the motives and trend of character. People only reveal what they what to, so a public diary is not a very accurate depiction of that person. I imagine it’s her own way of letting off stress or anxiety in a creative way. While adding personality to her name so that we can identify with her more since most of us have never met her.

I also find Vera really respectable by the way she comments to the readers. And appreciate her skill that has improved a lot more that she gives herself credit for. It’s sort of fun to compare the older pages. :)

In the last arc, is Daisy on her knees? I can’t really tell.

Hmm. My theory is that she will either run away in the other direction crying and not caring though people see her or she will just lie down and cry. If it’s the latter one then somebody (most likely one of the cast) will probably notice her and will talk to her.

This is just a theory good folks. So I might be completely wrong XD. You never know what Taeshi might come up with (excuse my English).

I knew it! I knew that her drunk behaviour would have consequences. ;-;
I have to say that I agree completely with Abbey on this one. Had my significant other acted that way with me watching (or if I had heard about it from someone who had seen it), I wouldn’t settle with an ‘I like you very much’ either. He needed a reason to stay with her, and she couldn’t give it. It might be that Daisy likes him and she can’t seem to be without him right then and there, but Abbey deserves better. He’s such a good person in my opinion, and it has to hurt to know that your love isn’t fully returned. This is so heartbreaking, and the new art style is really great. I like Abbey’s hopeful (and heartbreaking) expression in panel 7. *sigh*

On another note… am I the only one feeling like the main cast is slowly falling apart? I’m anxiously watching as the comic updates, and I certainly won’t leave until it’s over.

@ Lickit&stickit I didn’t say Daisy was completely innocent in all this. I said earlier in the comments she totally ****ed that **** up. I don’t think Daisy understands what it is to have a loving relationship. So she is clueless about what she is really doing. I think Tails is right about you really reading into this to much. It seems you always want proof of something to back up what people say. Well look at the rest of the comic and tell me Daisy is a selfish rude bitch.

I love Daisy’s design in this style, but the colours are a bit Muddy and I think Abbey looks too young. The watercolours were much nicer and easier on the eyes in my opinion.
However, at the same time, I really admire the artists bravery in trying something new very often! it takes a lot of guts to experiment with something you have in the public eye!
Abbey and Daisy are my favourite couple - they both have flaws, but they seem to both be trying to be good people.
However, I do agree that Daisy has kindof a “doctors” mindset - she wants to make people better, help and support them. I think she definitely cares a lot for Abbey but I’m not sure if its love, or a combination of seeing him as a very, very good friend and a bit of a patient, somebody who is damaged and needs to be healed.
She has done a lot for him, but you can’t build a long-term relationship on a one sided foundation, or it will sink.
Maybe some time apart will help Daisy sort her feelings out, and maybe Abbey will do some soul searching alone too?

This could have all but been avoided if they would have the occasional talk about their feelings toward one another. It’s a healthy thing and it helps pan out where everyone is in regards of their relationship, their feelings and where they’ll be going with it. Of course we can’t account for off screen interactions about the subject … but once or twice isn’t enough that has been seen and/or unseen. This conversation came way too late and now feelings are hurt. Both could have worked on their delivery but in reality, our world isn’t so cut and dry … and neither are their’s. Its not a perfect world, and if it was, this conversation wouldn’t have ended the way it did or maybe even started.

Daisy has been a huge support for Abbey … but she’s not entitled to love someone just so, regardless. However, she does owe him feedback on her feelings every now and then, to help both her and him, figure out where they stand with each other. Abbey isn’t entitled to keep Daisy around just because she’s been there … but he should keep it all in mind, the good and bad and figure out if it’s healthy for him to even have a relationship right now, considering all that he’s been through. Having support is great, but there are some things you have to come to terms with, and that has to come through soul searching … and that’s hard to do when your feelings are tied up in various knots.

I want to see them sit down alone, and figure out their own feelings, consider what the other feels, and maybe look at the situation that they’re both are in and how they got there to begin with. Then I want them to come together and talk it out … come to some sort of conclusion, even if that’s just breaking up and moving on, or coming back together, stronger than they were before, even if it is a bit of a rocky start, things can smooth out if allowed.

You know, I understand where both are coming from and perhaps the why. Daisy may feel obligated to be with Abbey because she does care and needs the support, but she’s undermining her own feelings in the process, if that’s the case, and does not make for a happy and healthy relationship. Abbey may be holding on tight to Daisy for all that’s happened but now that he’s got slapped in the face with Daisy coddling an old flame (her affection/love so to speak) he’s starting to let go and maybe feel like a deadweight.

But if they would had talked more about their relationship to one another … maybe this blow wouldn’t have been so rough on them both.

Even if it doesn’t turn out that they stay with one another … it can still deepen their friendship, and really, that’s what’s needed, whether or not they still stay as an item. … I really hope this situation expands their character development, not just as a couple but individually as well. There’s so many ways this could turn out so it’ll be interesting to see where it leads.

@ Blue fox - “Well look at the rest of the comic and tell me Daisy is a selfish rude bitch.”

Don’t remember Confrontation or Love My Way (the carnival) very well, do you? Daisy is pretty awful in both. @Lickit&stickit hit the nail on the head - Daisy has a pretty serious case of entitlement and when she doesn’t get her way, she doesn’t handle it well. A “smart immature sweet clueless loving oblivious little girl” would understand and respect that no means no.

so now the plot thickens.

Daisy is dump, now open to augst, once they warm up togather again, they will get bk on the mike topic there for augst tells her the wrong mike is, she argues then augst brings up Lucy. How much damage he caused for a person mike “Cared or loved” about according to Daisy. Daisy then realizes mike and there for gets over him on a dime.

@Cassidy “What an *******. So she still likes a guy she’s known for longer than she’s known him.

He IS forcing her to love him, by putting her through this superfluous guilt trip.

I never liked Abbey.”


Cassidy, maybe you’re not realizing the fact that Abbey is heartbroken because after all this time they’ve been dating, Daisy still doesn’t love him, and He loves Daisy very much. Daisy is actually the selfish one, because she still has feelings for Mike after all this time, and hasn’t developed stronger feelings for Abbey.

Basically, at this point, Daisy’s feelings for Mike are stronger than her feelings for Abbey. How would you feel if your significant other had stronger feelings for one of your friends than they had for you? Think about it.

It’s okay Tails, you never actually read my posts anyway. That’s why @Misaff pointed this out before I even got here. :P I don’t know why you comment to me as much as you do. It’s not like you ever have a good claim outside of trying to discredit my thoughts with your feelings.

@Blue fox

I did reference it, in multiple places. She has her flaws just like every other character. Especially with the way she’s been acting in this chapter. It was manipulative. And it certainly wasn’t nice. Does it mean that all Daisy is manipulative and horrible to everyone in the comic?

No, but she has always been this way with Mike and Abbey affairs. That’s what I reinforced. Specifically that she has manipulated Abbey ‘s feelings in pursuit of her Mike obsession. And check out the links, there have been hints of this far before the drunk chapter. This is exactly why Abbey walks away so upset when Daisy can’t own up to feelings that aren’t there. His suspicions are confirmed.

@Misckitty

Thank you. It baffles me that I can actually found direct references to support this issue, and I still have people waving their arms crying, “NOOOOO not Daisy! She’s always nice and sweet and wonderful! STAP IT!”

While on this romance issue, yeah she leaves a lot of nasty character on display. Often I feel that she has a large focus on appearances in everything she does, so it’s hard to always say she does it to be nice and not to bolster her reputation enough so that she gets what she feels entitled to (ie Mike, popularity, constant guy admiration ). Almost if she becomes so great, nice, innocent by everyone, surely everyone, especially Mike, will change his mind? We see this resurface at the party with her accusations and with Daisy’s horrified moment at the drug store when Mike sees her and she cares much more about him seeing her than the rest of Abbey’s kinda important conversation about what they were doing (which is why she angrily banters when he talks to her. She’s still hung up oh that, “Mike SAW me. What will HE think? Abbey leave me alone. *pout*).

@ Likit&stikit

Not entirely sure that “manipulative” is the right word for Daisy. Selfish and irresponsible, yes. But manipulation involves conscious thought on the part of the doer. She didn’t really “use” Abbey. She just totally forgot him. I have the same problem with nasty. It implies conscious malice. Daisy just doesn’t understand that her actions have consequences. She has an infatuation with meaningless things, and invests more in what she does not have than in what she does have. A common and obvious sign of serious immaturity and of low wisdom. She is smart enough to know what she is doing wrong but too immature to try. She certainly is nice and helpful sometimes. Only when she isn’t chasing after some meaningless trifle. And even then, its really just a superficial, band-aid help. I will condemn her for willful stupidity, shallowness, superficiality, and ignorance. I have yet to be convinced that she is willingly causing pain.

or a chapter of augustus seeing her alone, and moving in for another rape attempt?

@Lordof frye

That’s fair, but whether or not she meant malice, that is what happened to poor Abbey by the way this went down. I’m sure he feels lied to if nothing else. And Daisy may not have lied with intent to hurt, but I don’t know what possessed her to date Abbey this long if she doesn’t like him more than Mike. It’s like settling but it’s really mean to treat/date someone like they can’t ever compare to fantasy in your head that you have with another.That’s why I’m not ruling out other not-so-nice motives. There’s no reason to be with someone if you don’t think you can ever like them more than your first infatuation.

It’s sad, I think all of this would’ve been avoided if Daisy would just wait until she was over Mike. Crushes do not last forever, and if she stopped hanging out with him as often as she does, it’d help her get over it.

@ Lickit

:/ a year is not at long time ESPECIALLY to date someone, I know so many people get married or move in together or whatever after sometimes a month but seriously. You barely skim the surface after a year it might seem forever to someone in highschool or college but no its not much, you don’t even really get to KNOW your partner deeply sometimes until about 5 years. And actually what makes him so ridiculously immature is that he went into this eyes open and NEVER brought it up, never mentioned to her things that upset him, and never tried to talk about where this was going or what it even meant. What on EARTH is mature about it? (I find this particularity ridiculous as not only did he just walk away l but he ALSO refused to TRY talking about it he gave her an ultimatum out of the BLUE). This is what makes me struggle to believe he actually loved HER and not just what she may have represented to him. If you love someone you try to talk about your issues, you stick in there when times get hard, you communicate, you fight and scratch and cry and actively work on things together. I’m not saying thats all there is to love or that everyone does things the same but good grief its a sure sign of immaturity and self absorption, IF when things go bad you internalize and make ultimatums.

He set himself up to be hurt when he agreed to date her and then didn’t ever bother talking about the 10 ton elephant in the room. They both handled this poorly. Its a bit much to make her into this sex crazed man hungry monster. Btw I would only have even remotely considered her a manipulative crazy if she’d 1 hid her feelings from the start 2 snuck around behind his back and hit on mike 3 lied to him about how she felt about him to avoid being alone and 4 gone through with pushing sex on him (though… its to be said that he has a choice to say yes or no which he used).

I think its good he broke it off and that she has had something to wake her up because they are both too silly and immature for this. No it was not his “responsibility” to pick her up nor her his, but sometimes that is exactly what happens for the best most times. Not all people are able to go off and become these wonderful mature well balanced beings. Some people would literally be dead if the didn’t have someone there who picked them up and supported them through thick and thin. Did Daisy necessarily need Abbey to do that? Who knows these kids all seem ridiculously unbalanced and “the world will end if I don’t have X in my life’, but I dunno I think she would have been fine if she had more friends like Jasmine. Who knows how Abbey would have been though. I suppose for a highschool boy he was patient but from a married adult perspective he was just plain silly, and they’ll both be better off maturing for now. If this is anything like Emma then perhaps this will be the start of Daisy’s rock bottom, and she’ll start to understand reality/grow and realise what she had; and maybe Abbey will realise the silly things he did and how much he loves her and wants to try again? Who knows?

Side note you really REALLY never knew anyone this immature in school?! Honestly there’s always that one person up in rainbow land, unless you we’re that friend? You have to have known SOMEONE like this? Really immature, wanting to fit in, tired of being only in the background, wants to prove how adult they are, etc?

Cmon guys, don’t act like you didn’t see this coming like 10 pages ago… The proof is in the pudding! And several clues were given through plenty of previous chapters about how Abbey felt… not used..I’m guessing the actually term is more over a rebound guy, cause Daisy being the attention (not *****) addict she, was kinda homie hopping with other guys with the group. And I’ve been with my gf for 3 years now and we’ve been through some serious **** (excuse my language).

I know how he feels. in my opinion and I’m only saying this within my opinion, I feel that he is making a good choice. Why do I say? Because the girl that you love is pretty much in love with someone else and its truly heartbreaking and it’s very depressing and agitating to live like that. Let’s gender swap it, If your man, who you are truly dedicated to, who you’ve been dating for at least a YEAR, is STILL IN LOVE WITH ANOTHER GIRL, wouldn’t you feel out of place?

@Blackshadow

I’m not saying I didn’t see it coming, and I agree it was wise of them to break up. However having been in his shoes AND being a girl who was mature I dealt with it 500% differently then he did, he was still immature in handling it. We talked about it, we dealt with it (like acknowledged that it existed and didn’t pretend it went away just because we were dating), I helped him come to terms with it, etc. Yes it hurt but I loved him an I wasn’t so wrapped around my own hurt that I couldn’t see that there was another person I cared about hurting too. That doesn’t mean your feelings mean nothing and that you should put up with any sort of behavior. It just means your try your hardest to deal with the situation, and if you can’t work it out you leave it alone. Gender doesn’t mean a thing, in fact if we let gender rue this he did the manly thing. Men leave their women if they even think about another man but women are expected to just stick with a guy even if he cheats on her.

Comment ID #275105

one more thing I would like to add before everyone seriously gives up or thinks there’s no more life left with their relationship. as he says he doesn’t want to get serious while she still has a lot of feelings for Mike, yes? which means (at least I hope it means) that there’s a very slim chance that daisy could fix the problem that she caused. there’s still a possibility that they can fix the hole in their boat. It might seem like I’m clinging on to false hope. but I don’t think he has given up on her, and by that I mean he might be willing to give daisy another chance yo fix that problem.


@Samm-y


lol trust me I can tell you saw it coming. you’re one of the few who HAVE and who put your thoughts into this matter with care. everyone knows you have dealt with it differently, trust us we know XD. me putting gender into the mix though is because some people who like read the comments aren’t directly on topic like you and a few others are.


but I digress, what i want to say about this matter is that, its possible by some glitter of hope that EVEN THOUGH HE DIDNT SAY IT AND IT MIGHT BE IMPLIED THAT THEY DID, ITS ALSO POSSIBLE that abbey still wants Daisy to be able to make that change for their relationship. that’s just me though and my weird way of viewing things inside and outside the box.

Comment ID #275106

@Samm-y @Blackshadow

I don’t know what you are talking about. I know plenty of women that have walked when their man cheats.

For the reasons I stated in other place, along with some comic examples, whenever Daisy and Mike were shown together she was very much disinterested in her own boyfriend (often in the background) and fawning over Mike’s needs. Which is why I’m not buying the idea that Daisy is “So in love with two” theory.

Looking at your points Daisy has debatably participated in all of them. I’m going to try to keep this brief.

1) Abbey knew Daisy’s feelings from the start, but it would easily appear to Abbey that she has moved on. She’d taken all the steps to show this. She even stated how much she needed Abbey him after the Lucy debacle. Abbey started disregarding Mike as an issue until the party.
2)As for sneaking around and hitting on Mike, Daisy doesn’t sneak, but only because she fawns over Mike in front of Abbey. Or with her friends (See comic links from earlier post)
3) She might be lying to not be alone because I don’t see her as actually romantically interested in Abbey by the way she behaves (see start of post) outside of the physical.
4) Even though she chickened out once (which my theory is this had to do with seeing Mike at the store more than anything else which killed Daisy’s mood) it keeps being brought up by her, not Abbey. At the party, and recently on this chapter, which is what spurred Abbey’s convo to say “I dunno wanna be serious if you don’t love me.”

Summary: Daisy is nice in some ways, but she probably isn’t that romantically interested in Abbey. This means she:

A) Doesn’t want to be alone
B) Wants to appear/feel desirable or keep up an image
C) Just wants FWB,
D) Is waiting/settling until Mike might give her another shot

Unless we see her spiral because she does love Abbey, but couldn’t tell him for some dumb reason,she is using him for one or more of these reasons. Whether or not she intended to be hurtful, she was prolly just selfish and didn’t see Abbey’s side.

I honestly never have liked Daisy. She’s as immature and insecure as a sixth grader on their first day of school. All she wants is attention, and it’s causing things to be worse for her than they need to be.

Now Abbey, I like. He’s mature, smart, and knows when to not take **** from anybody. He can verbally fend for himself, while Daisy can’t. Abbey was heartbroken at the fact that Daisy has stronger feelings for Mike than for him. She couldn’t even muster up three little words.

Daisy is probably gonna walk away, crying, blaming everything on Abbey and, as always, not taking responsibility for her own actions. Then run to either Mike, Paulo, maybe even David, I don’t even know.

Janet might notice that Abbey is upset, and try to talk to him about what happened. There are many possibilities at this point.

Like very much, but not love… That’s got to hurt, but Abbey is just being emo right now. What a pessimist!
I’m not saying everything will always turn out well, but Abbey clearly could have handled this better. He could’ve given her a second chance, and given himself one at the same time.
A relationship is something forged from two sides- If Abbey isn’t tries to win her over and Daisy tries to be more loving towards Abbey, the relationship might work out. And Abbey just threw away that chance without trying.
This shows Abbey’s lack of confidence both himself and Daisy. Some may view Daisy as the problem, but I say while that may be true, Abbey’s a coward.

Looking forward for the next page upload. Don’t hate me for saying this but I hope Daisy doesn’t go after him. I hope instead that she and Abbey will be able to fix their relationship slowly. I find that drama is needed and this is prefect for drama. This may even lead to something. So I’m hoping she just cries and has a girl talk with someone.

WARNING: The text below might be quite boring and it is advised that if you hate long texts then you should skip to Paulo/Daisy text. Thank you and read safely :D

I kinda have been waiting for this to happen since I knew this would happen. I knew it would be because of her crush (or whatever you want to call it) on Mike. I knew Abbey would get hurt and would be the one to break the relationship/take a break. But one thing happened that I did not expect. Abbey handled it really well and was quite cool about it. In my version (how I thought it would play out before this chapter) Abbey was kinda mad that she was still not over Mike and there was a big fight between them. Abbey would come out on the top since Daisy would probably break down (I got no proof if she is more unstable then Abbey in a fight so it’s just a theory) and run away crying and Abbey would feel bad for having handled it really poorly but would not try ask for forgiveness (even though he shouldn’t have to) since the damage was done and that he was really hurt over the whole Mike/Daisy thing.

I think this chapter is about Paulo and Daisy. So something might happen between them (nothing sexual though….. I hope D: ). They might have a talk or something. I’m trusting that Paulo won’t do anything stupid since he would never hurt Daisy (she’s like a sister to him).

Abbey isn’t a coward, but he does have serious self-esteem and trust issues.
But no-one can blame him for that with good conscience when his family life got wrecked by his father murdering his mother and ontop of that blamed him for it:
http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c69/p24.html

So considering the **** he’s been through he’s handling it like a champ, while Daisy’s being a big baby about it all.
