You know, David has a point.

Look at what Daisy said. She said she “loved dating Abbey”, meaning she loved the whole relationship thing, not him. Why be in a relationship with someone if you don’t have true feelings for them?

I think Daisy likes the idea of relationships, but isn’t ready to have deep feelings with someone…

I think Paulo has a point, but I also think he’s being hypocritical by dismissing Abbeys feelings of love while claiming his feelings of love for Lucy are “different”.
Daisy certainly cares a lot about Abbey, but if she doesn’t love him it will hurt Abbey less in the long run to end it now before he falls even deeper.
I have to commend Daisy though, because she has supported him, and she has also never lied about her feelings to him.
My main hope now is that the two can be friends. I loved them as a couple and I hope they can remain good friends :)

Paulo’s reasoning isn’t really all that bad, it’s true when your young, most relationships don’t have a serious chance of lasting. Besides that, he’s currently in a very casual relationship with Rachel. So to him, Abbey breaking things off, just because Daisy isn’t serious about him, just sounds like he’s being a stick-in-the-mud about things. The thing Paulo isn’t taking into account is that for relationships to work, you need to be happy with the terms it’s based on to begin with.

If your dating as a teenager, but you both are being realistic that, much as you love each other now, there are MANY changes in your life coming up that may change that, or take you on different pathways. Then there’s nothing wrong with that logic. For all accounts Daisy and Abbey enjoyed their time together as a couple. But that only counts so long as they both *believe* and want the relationship to work. Daisy let the team down because she didn’t believe in it enough to actually let Abbey into her heart, on that basis, why should he believe in it working now?

If he admitted Abbey’s feeling were valid, he might have to consider how Rachel feels about him harping on about Lucy. He and Daisy are similar in how they are stuck on their past crushes and ignoring, or taking for granted the wonderful people they currently do have with them.

The difference is Rachel puts her heart on the line because she already knew Paulo needed time to get over Lucy (and maybe hoped the no-strings-attached nature of her approach will make him appreciate her with time), she’s not under any illusion as to what Paulo’s feelings are. While Abbey and Daisy tried to play happy couples and tried to believe their relationship was genuine. When that was shattered for Abbey…well yeah, better to end it than to stay and be unhappy about it.

Daisy looks a bit miffed in the lower panel, wonder if she’s going to weigh in on Paulo’s recent endeavours?
