Well. No one saw that one coming. Wonder if Paulo admits that he was going to say the same thing. That would either make the situation much less awkward or take the awkwardness to a whole new level, it would depend on how they both handle it.
I think that when she explains, she’s going to day she’s actually fallen for David. At which point, David’s going to burst in, put his hand on Paulo’s shoulder, stare him directly in the eyes and say, “Ovaries.” At which point, both David and Jasmine will run off in separate directions and leave Paulo to wonder what just happened.
In reality though, I’m pretty sure that she’s doing this because it’s practically impossible for them to see each other at all and that’s a lot of stress on her.
Still though, this is really surprising considering her break down just a couple months ago at Lucy’s ‘party’.

Wow this is awesome. Not only does Paulo dodge a bullet, he also gets to avoid making Jasmine cry. That week away from Paulo must have given Jasmine time to think about their relationship and realize that this was for the best.

Oh, so Jasmine wasn’t oblivious to Paulo being distracted lately.

Paulo is surprised, relieved, and curious all at the same time(just like the rest of us 8-D). I am glad that Jasmine is not crying right now, but now i’m wondering how Paulo will react :x. I think this is the first time anyone ever said that to him so he has no other way to react to it(aside from being surprised). In any case Paulo is most likely going to wonder “why?” until he asks her. Also I understand why Jasmine has this emoticon :O. It makes total sense now she is the master of surprises.

supertails19 January 18, 2013, 12:26 AM EST.

Comment ID #236827

PLOT TWIST! Didn’t see you there, how are you faring tonight?

Well, I didn’t see this coming. She probably has a good reason, ‘cause as far as I saw in Pillow Talk, she really cared about Paulo, and made an effort to fit him into her schedule. I guess something in Paulo’s behavior tipped her into thinking “maybe its best to see other people bit” (like the snowman moment), or if maybe she really felt they were better off as friends than lovers, or both? It’s probably both, ‘cause maybe in the short moments they were able to spend together, she probably saw their relationship didn’t have much romantic inclinations, or it reached a point where she saw they weren’t meant to go further.

I’m sad :O x 8-) is no more, but I’m pretty sure the mutual dissolve in their relationship will make the transition into a friendship easier….. if they want to. I’m kinda hoping for this because I really liked their dynamic, romantic relationship or not. And I also hope Jaz stays in the comic, because she’s just that great :D

Subaru January 18, 2013, 12:29 AM EST.

Comment ID #236828

Awwww Jazz! I thought she was starting to get ideyas, ever since they were building the snowman. She really does have a sensible head, and she’s totally cool with being just friends with Paulo. As sweet as they are together, there’s no reason why they can’t play the same pranks and games as friends!

I really do like this kitty, and I also hope she makes regular appearances from here on out! At first I didn’t like having another love interest to keep track of, but she really has grown on me! :D

Comment ID #236830

As much as I am glad we won’t see Jasmine get hurt by Paulo breaking up with her, I have to wonder; What are Jasmine’s reasons for breaking up with Paulo? Last time I saw, she would do anything to keep him with her. Perhaps all the stress of a relationship is just too much for her, or, like back in one of the previous chapters, she noticed his growing obsession with Lucy, and figured she should let him try to pursue a relationship with her instead. But I think the most likely reason is because she wants him to have a girlfriend that can spend time with him more than she has. Unless I’m looking at this all wrong and when she said “We should see other people.”, she really meant “I found someone else”. But I sort of doubt that’s the case. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see. :x

Ember January 18, 2013, 12:32 AM EST.

WELL DANG. Didn’t see that coming. I didn’t even like Jasmine before, but I have so much more adoration for her now XD I feel like Paulo is a bit relieved, but he’s definitely shocked too.

And it wouldn’t surprise me if Jasmine is breaking up with Paulo because she feels guilty about the fact her various hobbies and activities have a higher priority than their relationship.
Thus further guilt tripping him while doing his “work”

Comment ID #236857

@Nikita: I laughed at the David part of your comment XD. Paulo is already left wondering what just happened. Also, Jasmine might have noticed how distracted Paulo has been and realized it’s because he still has feelings for Lucy. I obviously did not give Jasmine enough credit because I honestly thought she was oblivious(especially since Paulo had a really long daydream and she didn’t think anything was odd about Paulo being so distracted). Looks like Jasmine did give what he said more thought(Jasmine: Who do I know that wears ribbons? :O Why was he thinking of Lucy? Wasn’t she one of the girls that Paulo likes? Maybe I should follow him *follows* Why is he in front of Lucy’s house asking to she her?). Now it all makes sense 8-D. I’m kidding with this part^ Jasmine could of easily connected the dots while she was gone(maybe before then) or she could not know about how Paulo feels and she figured that since he hasn’t said “I love you” to Jasmine(not even once) then he probably doesn’t and it is not like it was meant to last anyways :/.

@Nimbus26: Paulo got past one hurdle without even trying but he has plenty more :smirk:. Also, Jasmine made that prediction with seconds to spare. Any longer and she would have been the one with the dumbfounded yet relieved expression.

@Ditto: Same here(I had to stop myself from saying your name as a response 8-D)

@KC: I was wondering where Jasmine’s bun went to in that panel, but what Jasmine said took my interest instantly :x.

@Plot twist: I would recommend reading this chapter from the beginning that way you won’t be confused :).

@Subaru: You beat me with that snowman comment, oh well :/. Actually it looks like quite a few BCB fans were thinking about that scene, o.o interesting.

@Neospecter: Huzzah for Jasmine not crying as soon as she got home or on the way :D.

To be honest, I think Jazz is a pretty smart girl and sweet (Remember how she saved Paulo from being mobbed by the girls back when she first met him?). Personally I think she worked out why Paulo wanted to talked to her and how uncomfortable he was gave him an out.

Comment ID #236863

The question is: did Jasmine break it off because she
legitimately wants to see other people, or because she
feels like she doesn’t give Paulo enough attention?
She has some serious ESP going on if she deduced
that Paulo had strong feelings for Lucy. Either way, she
is being very mature about the whole thing. Paulo was
in a tough spot and she made it easier for him. He may not
Even have to explain himself, but just simply agree with her.
I think they will still be good friends regardless.

Purin January 18, 2013, 2:10 AM EST.

Comment ID #236864 Panel 8. We all Know Jasmine is awesome.

@Coyote: Paulo definitely hasn’t been subtle not even in front of Jasmine. It was only a matter of time before Jasmine noticed something was wrong. Mr. “I don’t do awkward” has been acting as awkward as Zachary lately. Well not that awkward but you get what I mean right?

@Ember: I wouldn’t be surprised if Jasmine found somebody else since she is a great girl. My guess is that Jasmine realized his heart belongs to somebody else(maybe Tess told her or maybe she noticed how distracted he has been lately and thought this would be for the best :x).

@DrackeStalenTorgen: It makes sense Paulo and Jasmine acted more like friends and not an actual couple. Also, almost no one saw this coming(except Taeshi and Suitcase of course) and Jasmine gained a lot of respect for it. Jasmine has earned a reputation for being one unpredictable character. Almost like David 8-D.

@Terrh: I knew that this couple wasn’t meant to last from that moment(Back and Forth)but that doesn’t make this any easier :(. At least Paulo will always have David(except when flower girl is around then David has top secret missions to got to 8-D).

@Purin: I think it will be very likely that they will still hangout like they used to(minus the somewhat awkward hugs and maybe a little more silence for a few days :x).

Good night.

As simple as this makes it for Paulo, I also feel bad for both parties involved. It sucks to be in a relationship that doesn’t work, it involves a lot of guilt and it’s just very disheartening and draining to try something and have none of it meet your expectations. Jasmine probably learned a lot from this though! She’s a very outspoken and she’s not afraid to share her feelings, and that drive for all those extracurriculars she takes is going to do her well, mmhm.
Here’s to hoping she doesn’t vanish in the comic, because Jazz is a pretty fab gal.

I’m glad this will be working out. And they seemed to be mature enough about the entire ordeal. I know in real life these kinds of things can be messy. However I’d like to point out that Mike told Lucy her ‘rebound’ didn’t even like her….I think Mike really needs to over look everything again because this here shows he was so very wrong.

Holy hell.

Jasmine actually beat him to it. *Respect +1000* I’m impressed that she got straight to the point and didn’t give him any beating-around-the-bush-with-excuses-and- consolations crap.

I bet Paulo’s reeling in that noggin of his. Now that I think about it, he seemed to be expecting a Lucy-style reaction to breaking up: tears and sobbing, with begging and flailing fists. Goes to show you just how fixated he is on that girl, and how quickly she needs to realize it.

But nope. Jazzy’s cool with it. :D That must be a load off his shoulders.

Haha, Jazz is more of a man than Paulo is! Beat him to it.
This is wonderful, because this is actually a very sweet and, don’t make me say it, bitter moment. What really gives me a sigh of relief though, is that this is a step towards progress.
Too many times in BCB when there is a chance for progress, things become blocked up and fragmented into a more difficult situation. Mike tries to kiss Lucy in their childhood and she rejects him, Lucy admits to loving Mike and he says he doesn’t like her anymore, Augustus is pinning after Daisy when he can’t get her, Lucy’s about to jump off a building for Mike who doesn’t really seem to care…
Instead of hiding in the past or becoming stuck in the present, this is a step into the future, a direction you want to be going if you got the steel for it. So much of this “should I?”, “shouldn’t I?”, “what if?”, and “there’s no hope.” going on that I just feel liking getting up, kicking the person in the rear, and yelling “stand up and advance already!”
Life is like a battlefield; the longer you stand around and wait, the more likely you’re going to get hit by a mortar shell. You have to keep up the pace and keep moving, if you want to survive.

I really hope Paulo and Lucy start dating. It’d be good for both of them. Lucy brings out Paulo’s good and caring side (surprisingly) and Lucy could use some happiness in her life right now.

Tch Paulo got everything easier for him. He was going to ditch her but she ditches him first and now he’s free to marry Lucy, happy ending.
Can we come back to Augustus? At least he’s not friggin predicable.

Lol, I have a feeling she knew that this was coming before it happened, I mean Paulo has been acting strange ever since Lucy started to get depressed! If anything Jazzy probably has been waiting for the right moment to break up with him ^^

Well, that was an unexpected preemptive strike. Hopefully Paulo takes it well, all things considering. I’m curious as to why Jazz wants to end things too though. It really seems out of left field. At least to us readers.

And why the heck are they doing this on New Year’s Eve, and at a party no less?! Have some tact, kids…

Have a feeling Jazz is just doing this because she knows what he was going to say, and she’s going to be sad when she gets some alone time.

Poor Jazz, hope she finds someone who fits better.

okay PPL let me break it down for you.

1st: seeing other ppl may not mean she wants to break up. they could still date each other and still date other ppl. the whole “true” concept of dating was orriginaly that you became of age to start going out there and socializing on a more personal level. goin’ steady (or having the title of boy/girlfriend) is when you are exclusively dating one person.

2nd: to anyone saying that Jasmine never really cared… what the F have you guys been smoking??? it’s clear that not not only dose Jasmine care but she is very astute as well. maybe she realized that Paulo has been struggling with some emotions and this is her way of helping (or protecting him & herself) with his indecisiveness.

3rd: you also have to remember that Paulo is Jasmine’s FIRST boyfriend. and because she is so intuitive, she may realize that here reaction to the fight she and Paulo had in “Pillow Talk” meant that she was becoming too dependent on Paulo and wasn’t preparing herself for an obvious possibility that Paulo may end up dating someone else.

come on PPL, Jasmine’s a good girl and a cool character. don’t hate

P.S. it would be funny if she wanted to date David

Oh thank goodness. Jazz is still so young, not to mention a girl, so I don’t think that she would have taken being broken up with so well. I’m actually glad that she beat Paulo to it. It’s also better for Paulo, because I know he does still care about her, he just doesn’t feel the same way about her anymore. He wouldn’t want to hurt her and would probably just stay in the relationship to spare her feelings.

if some has notice before, throughout the comic, while jazz is dating paulo, she been noticing him act strange when he’s around lucy and even daisy? it even says in the bcb chart that she was jealous of tess. i think she kinda figured paulo still have feelings for for several other girls. i think she’s breaking up with him more for his benefit than her own. all and all i think she still have feelings for him. i mean who breaks up with someone at party anyway?

I officially love Jasmine. I would give anything to have a girlfriend or a friend like her =P
Jasmine understood her position that she was not the number one in Paulo’s life. She knew that her being his current girlfriend really hurt him because it put him in constant emotional turmoil. She knew without even asking and just understood and decided to make it easier on the both of them and end it herself so stop Paulo from going through the pain of doing it himself. However this could mean Paulo is now even in more turmoil if he realizes that Jasmine is doing this for him. I mean how could anyone leave someone like Jasmine after she did something like that? Or I could be over analyzing this =P

@Taeshi I am simply amazed how deep all the characters are. There’s something new to discover, laugh, or cry about every page. KEEP THIS UP. DO NOT STOP.

Sure made Paulo’s life way easier. I wonder why Jazz wants to break up. I hope its because she could see what Paulo was thinkin’. Cause if she has a crush on someone else that will just be redonkculous. But she did say we should see other people not that they should stop seeing each other. So that’s not a good sign.

@Stofu: Jasmine won’t completely vanish since she is the treasurer and everybody likes her. Besides there it is only a matter of time before everybody finds out about this and goes “What. whaaat. whaaaaaat. 8-)

@CrystalSon: What and Paulo trying his best to see Lucy doesn’t? What about Augustus thinking she was going to jump and running as fast as he could up the stairs to try and stop her? Point is that Mike’s December rant was flawed and rage fueled(Now holes are being poked through it :smirk:) all that is left is for Lucy to realize she is not alone, that she has people who care about her(if she hasn’t realized it already).

@PocketGodPygmy: A load of his shoulders and a blow to his ego. It is not too often that he gets dumped by somebody YOUNGER! 8-D David sure knows how to get Paulo into big messes.

@Follarch: We all know that Paulo would be a vulpix but what pokemon would Jasmine be? Maybe an espeon because she obviously saw this coming and decided to make things easier for Paulo(esp for the win). Actually color wise espeon seems perfect for Jessica instead :smirk:.

@TheEsquire: Since when has Paulo been known to be tactful? Jasmine on the other hand showed how smart she by effectively assessing the situation and making a difficult decision for Paulo so much easier 8-).

@sen: Agreed… even if it doesn’t seem too likely that Jasmine is going to start hanging out with David 8-D. Well unless you count this as a date: enjoy 8-D :O.

@Dr.Z: Jasmine could have found somebody she wanted to be with in one of her many extracurricular activities or she could have seen the conflict in Paulo(it is not like he has been very good at hiding it :/).

@AnayuWolf: If anybody stays in a relationship just to spare somebody else’s feelings that would only cause more heartache and that would not have been good for either of them. I’m glad it ended this way, now no one has to go home crying :).

i think that things may have just been too much for jasmine and shes probably
noticed that Paulo’s mind is completely elsewhere and on other ‘ahem’ things.
I’m almost positive she’s thinking ‘im going to focus on school and clubs and you should focus on that other girl who i know youre interested in’

Jasmine is really a nice girl but I never shipped her with felt more like a platonic friendship to me.

Eh. To be honest, I kind of saw this coming, but I was really hoping it wouldn’t happen. It’s a bit of a cliche: person A is about to break up with (or drop some other horrible news on) person B, then, before person A has a chance to talk, person B says what person A was about to say first. I’ve seen it a million times, and to be honest it’s pretty dull whenever I see it now. I actually would have prefered it if Paulo had just gone ahead and dumped her. As much as I love Jasmine and don’t want her to be sad, I would much prefer having one of my favorite characters go through a conflict over having them saved from that conflict by a stale, tried-and-true situation. I’m really sorry, and I don’t mean to be rude about this, but I’m just not a huge fan of this page. :/

A step in the right direction.
I still want Lucy to tell Paulo about what Mike said. She probably won’t on purpose, for fear of Mike getting his *** kicked, but I’m hoping something slips and Paulo puts two and two together. Sweet ol’ Mikey still needs a stern talking to for what he did. I know he felt kinda bad when he talked to Lily, but that wasn’t nearly enough. He needs to understand the gravity of what he did.

Comment ID #236945

What I believe is gonna happen:

Paulo will be initially relieved, and will start to pursue Lucy. Then, one of three things will happen:

A - Gets into a jealous fit over Augustus, and Lucy doesn’t care. These two are at odds; while Augustus is just ****** cause he’s not even interest. Past problems with that gang I can’t remember are surfaced through Paulo’s stupidity in wanting to knock Augustus’ block.

B - Lucy is not interested at all, and Paulo is left in confusion. Jasmine pulling the break-up first pulls that psychological thing where now that she’s turning him down, he actually really wants her more. Epic dramaz ensue.

C - Lucy reciprocates, but perhaps with ulterior motives. Paulo is a little oblivious, but Jasmine finds out and tries to warn him but he’s too blind about and assumes she’s just being jealous.

D - An alien species that looks identical to David lands and invades. David is actually an alien scout and has brought doom to everyone.

On the bright side, hopefully he will be relieved that Jazzy was the first to say this. I think that the relationship between Paulo and Jasmine is awesome, and their dynamic personalities result in a lot of fun, but they really don’t need to be anything more than friends.

First off, I’d like to say: good for both of them. Jazz needs a guy who will constantly support her, even with her over-booked activities calender - a boyfriend who will take the back seat to her after-school activities, if you will.

Paulo needs to have a girl who loves to be with him/in an activity with him. Plus, with all of his tensions, he kind of needs some time without a relationship right now, because re-examining your life takes some time, an that is EXACTLY what he needs to do right now, and sort things out.

Hadron January 19, 2013, 8:41 AM EST.

Comment ID #236964

Well, I can’t believe I didn’t see this coming. XD

Even though I find Jasmine to be a boring character I will say I think she’s brighter and more mature than (almost) all the other characters in this comic. So when I think it over, this does make sense. I’m sure Jasmine noticed that Paulo has feelings towards Lucy, and that their “relationship” is more like best friends than boyfriend and girlfriend.

Plus, looking back, Paulo has never loved Jasmine (which I’m sure she has come to notice). He only asked her out ‘cause he wanted a girlfriend, but he found girls his own age too complicated and girls older than him too experienced. He randomly selected her and asked her out, just for the sake of having a girl. So I’m sure Jasmine knew their relationship wasn’t meant to last, and that he would eventually break-up with her.

Anyways, I’m happy on how this turned out.

How does it go? You never know what you have until its gone? ok now my eyes are starting to tear up.

Anyway… I am the only looking forward to Mike VS Paulo? Oh Mike say hi to Augustus for me. We all know once what you did gets out. You will definitely be hanging out with him.

Wait Mike is literally close to Augustus, they become friends Augustus leads Mike into: Posted image
And oh no now who will save Mike! All his friends hate him! No one will save. Picture him laying there scared surronded most likely bleeding. Knowing no one will come. Only to be shocked to see who has come to his rescue… an emotionally insecure Khao Manee! DRAMA! CONFUSION! And… **** I forgot the last one! Oh love? O.o

Someone January 19, 2013, 1:48 PM EST.

Comment ID #236969

@Fred Mcflurry: A) If Augustus wanted to beat Paulo he would only have to use use BARK it will be super effective, Paulo would then be forced to FLEE, and Augustus could use PURSUIT or his favorite move IGNORE. Paulo will come back again with a different strategy he will use ROCKCLIMB to scale the building, Paulo will find Lucy and SING to her in order to win her love. Paulo will then go to Lucy and wonder why she is ignoring him, she will point to her left ear and remind him of her ability SOUNDPROOF. Paulo tries again but Augustus shows up and then they start arguing, but before they could start fighting Lucy gets annoyed and she uses FRUSTRATION to knock them both out. She brings them inside and then goes back out to enjoy her BLIZZARD.

B) I never understood that. A guy that is ready to break a girl’s heart ends up in a situation like this and he would be like “please give me another chance I can do better” or “What! You can’t break up with me” and it just doesn’t make sense to me :/. Then later on I would find out that the girl did it on purpose because she knew the guy was about to break up with her. Getting a boyfriend, that is about to break up with you, to stay by breaking up with him first is a new level of deviousness that I can’t comprehend yet. I don’t think Jasmine is that devious though she probably noticed that Paulo’s mind has been elsewhere lately… and she didn’t feel like getting dumped :nope:.

C)The only ulterior motives(that Lucy might use Paulo for) I can think of are: getting her family to leave her alone by convincing them that she is better or trying to make Augustus or Mike(most likely Mike :D) jealous. But this is assuming she says “Yes Paulo I love you too” and then they both had kittens :smirk:. Sorry but I have become a little bit skeptical about that happening any time soon(maybe someday or maybe with somebody else) For now Lucy just needs to focus on getting her act together and that will take time, having somebody can help but it is clear that she doesn’t exactly trust anyone right now so it looks she will be walking this path away from the darkness on her own(kinda hoping I am wrong on this though :/).

D)XD that last one made me crack up and now my brother is giving me weird looks. David being an alien only makes sense because “she who shall not be named” went back to her home planet 8-D. Although I think they would be of the friendly and funny variety, not the kind that brings doom for everybody :x.

@Hadron: As long as Jasmine stays away from Mike everything should be fine(I mentioned Mike because he is already taking a backseat to Sandy’s career). As for Paulo he could do it with Lucy(re-examine his life, of course). Don’t give me that weird look we both know Lucy is probably doing the same in her winter wonderland(she is thinking about her life right now what else would she be thinking about? Oh right :unsure:).

@LimeCake: I am glad their relationship ended in a mutual break up as well. Now let’s hope Paulo doesn’t do anything to mess this up D:.

Wow still so many think that the whole Lucy x Paulo thing is going to happen.

I’m still placing bets on the whole Augustus x Lucy thing. Simply because there will be more drama of Paulo pining over Lucy which he wouldn’t be able to be with and Jasmine sneaks in with a break up before he could.

Honestly it would have worked better if she gave him the time of day to which she wasn’t. More like not taking the relationship seriously until the very end and by then it’s expected he’s going to wander there because she put in very little effort to it.

You know a webcomic is good if there are people wishing fictional characters to be well.

*Turns around* “Okay, have a nice life!” *Walks away*
I say there’s a good chance she did this not because she actually feels that way, but because she could tell it would only be a matter of time from Paulo’s actions. She loves him and wants to take the pain of breaking up herself, rather than make Paulo do it and have him feel guilty.

Oh. My. God.
I agree with first comment, sounds like something Jazz would do. It’s actually really sad if you think about it…

Well… I did it…. Every issue from the archive, intermissions and special issues included. It’s been one hell of a ride that’s for sure. It’s really quite a contrast to how teenage like is portrayed in the mainstream as this fun carefree adventure… no… this is much more like, though a little melodramatic here and there.

Man this series is awesome, hell I’m probably crazy enough to join the form and why not. As for predictions I think Paulo Mike and Augustus are gonna have a three way confrontation over Lucy… If I’m right I get an internet cookie

@GentlemanNemesis: If you are right about Augustus, Mike, and Paulo having a big fight over Lucy, I will say what anybody would say if they saw such an epic fight: COOL 8-D!

I doubt it would happen unless:

1)Augustus decides he cares about Lucy enough to get in a fight he could easily avoid ;).

2)Mike suddenly starts feeling guilty and tries to apologize to Lucy but the others won’t let him :unsure:.

3)Paulo tries to confess to Lucy but Augustus acts like a bouncer and just won’t let Paulo through the door 8-).

4)The queen wished it and they have to make it happen now or else Mad Lucy.

5)The fight becomes a Paulo versus Augustus fight because Mike uses his speed to avoid both of them while David watches 8-D.

6)Lucy is the one that convinced them to fight so she could find out who is worthy of her love… and while she watches Amaya shows up with popcorn which Lucy happily buys :x.

Hmm, I think I would want to avoid unnecessary fights, but Augustus is the only one that seems like he can avoid a fight. Mike is going to be called out on his actions and Paulo seems like the first one to throw a punch unless Lucy decides to surprise everybody and take Mike down all on her own. What is Mike the only one allowed to snap? That’s right Mike keep pushing Lucy into a corner let’s see what happens to you then. I honestly hope Mike can man up and apologize after he sees how wrong he was but I am beginning to think it will take more than some positive reinforcement from Sandy… unfortunately :(.

Mike it is only a matter of time before the others realize what you did and there is only one person that could protect you from their wrath, believe it or not that person is Lucy. Lucy can forgive you but you would have to put some effort into earning that forgiveness. I get it things won’t ever be the same even if you do apologize, but wouldn’t it be better to apologize to Lucy the next time you see her and avoid getting punished by everyone you know :x?

Oh yeah let me make something very clear, when I say apologize I mean: meet Lucy face to face, say you are sorry for what you said and the way you acted, tell her you still don’t want to be friends because you made that very clear before, this next part is very important so listen up tell Lucy that she is not alone and she has a lot of people that cares about her… even if you are no longer one of them ;_;.

@Sambo: Mike can have Sandy, Paulo can have Lucy, Augustus can have Daisy, Abbey can have Tess, David could have Flower Girl, McCain can have Sue, Souppy can have Taeshi and everyone else could find somebody they love later on. ^This is how things would be if Bittersweet Candy Bowl suddenly became drama free, Hah! 2 of them already happened, 2 have a good chance of happening, 2 seem unlikely in my opinion, and the last one is just for people who believe in happy endings :).

Paulo enjoy this hail mary pass you won’t see another one for a while :nope:. This is a gift don’t squander it. You can feel bad about having somebody to break up with you, but if you actually say(in front of Jasmine) “You are awesome. Now I am going to find Lucy.” Paulo would be a lot more tactful than that 8-). We all know he is going to feel bad, but not as bad as he would have if he had to break up with Jasmine D:. Just ask her why then walk away Paulo :x. Why do I feel he is going to make this harder than it needs to be :/?

Hang on, she didn’t say she wants to break up, she said she wants them to be able to see other people. ie she wants to be polyamorous?

Or is monogamy such an assumed norm that I’m the only one seeing that interpretation? Because a bit of polyamory could make this comic a whole lot less tragic/dramatic (in some ways… and a lot more complicated in others!).

“I hope to God that I don’t make Jasmine cry.” Paulo will be devastated if he knew Jazzy was crying now…
