Oh, wow, poor Mikie. I’ve been in a long distance relationship before, and it just sucked because people would always ask me why I didn’t just dump him and date my best friend here. It was a mess. So, yeah. I understand you, Mike.

You wanna know more, more, more about me
I’m the girl who’s kicking the coke machine
I’m the one that’s honking at you ‘cuz I left late again

Hey! Hey! Hey!

Could you see I want you by the way I push you away?
Don’t judge me tomorrow by the way I’m acting today
Mix the words up with the actions do it all for your reaction.
Hey! Hey!
Get tangled up in me

You wanna know more, more, more about me
Gotta know reverse psychology
I’m the reason why you can’t get to sleep
I’m the girl you never get just quite what you see

“Tangled up in Me” by Skye Sweetnam.

Reminds me of the Lucy before she spilled, and maybe a little now too.

By the look of Mike’s eyes, I can tell that he genuinely regrets his decision. If he didn’t he would have gotten mad at her - at least I think so anyway.

OK to be honest with you guys long distance relation ships never really work out i mean your boyfriend or girlfriend Is getting on with their life . meeting new friends and ….just i dunno getting on with it….. i mean you can send postcards and letters….. but that i’sent going to last forever BUT HEY! if you could ever get one working Kudos to you that is freaking incredible. But then mike questions if he is in love with Lucy ….So much drama ….in High school……………Taeshi YOU ARE F*#@ING ACE!!

I would have done the old “start a sentence but then stop and stare intriguingly at something behind them, then when they turn to see what I was looking at, run away” trick.
Unlike the “what’s that behind you” trick, this actually works.

I never thought I would say this, but…
Poor Mike. :unsure:
I mean, why did Lucy expect this much from him? And everyone else, too? He has a right to say “no”, and she should have expected it. I mean, he’s still not a jerk; give him some time.

….. Oh wait. I REALIZED. He becomes a jerk precisely because of this.
I feel smart. 8-D

You can’t force someone to love someone that they don’t, and you can’t force yourself to love someone that you don’t.

If Mike doesn’t love, his loss. If Lucy loves him, her loss. Mike has Sandy, Lucy has potential in Paulo.

PLEASE LucyXPaulo…

@NintendoSegaSonyGuy- After reading a lot of your comics, i think that you’re a bit of a hypocrite. If you can’t force people who don’t love each other together, why are you forcing Lucy and Paulo together so hard? Sure, Lucy has a crush on him, but crush =/= love.

There are few things in life more frightening than being the target of an Angry Chick Posse. Mike’s balls probably just went to hide behind his kidneys and maybe whimper a little.

You know, assuming he has them…. somewhere.

And I’m not trying to force them together. I merely WANT them to end up together. Sue me.

You do not want to mess with a flock of women. Men will stop giving a **** after 5 minutes, not even bother hassling you about it before then, and the worst you can expect is a punch in the face if you ****** them off enough. Women, however… will hound you for months, if not years, and they gossip like nuts.

“Did you have a fight?”
“Did you fail a test?”
“It’s the second day of school.”

Good ol’ Paulo. Always comes up with the most logical situation to the problem. As an aside, the chapters after Starting Over are when I begin to tolerate Abbey as opposed to outright loathing. Poland lost about 20 percent of her pre-war population by 1945. He becomes a more likable and rational character, as opposed to his ranting, hypocritical earlier self.
