sweet nothings by Bob-Rz sweet nothings by Bob-Rz
yeah, i don't get it either.


remember those Loony Toons where Bugs Bunny was in Spain? i don't remember how he got there, wrong turn at Albuquerque or something. anyway, when Bugs was in Spain he wound up in a bull fight. and so there he is, playing matador, the bull is charging at him and he's got his red matador cape out. the hapless bull lunges at the cape with all his might, unaware that bastard bunny has a brick wall hidden behind it.

i think this is a pretty good metaphor for what it's like being a romantic.

The part that scares me is that there is actully women that find her line of thought completly logical..........it chills me to my very soul.
So in order to make sure that her stupid Wench genes won't make it into the future he should just snap her neck right now and then dispose of the body. =)

Ya know why that line of thought is logical? Because women have freedom of choice. If a woman leaves your ass, it means SHE DOES NOT WANT TO BE WITH YOU. If she actually DOES go out with a manipulative asshole, it's probably because she has an unhealthy tendency towards harmful relationships caused by some sort of minor psychological trauma - or, ya know, SHE WANTS TO, and that's none of your business. However, if you DO NOT LET HER GO, call her things like 'wench', 'slut', or 'bitch', or treat her like she is your property because you two showed each other a form of affection at one point, guess what? YOU are also a 'manipulative asshole'. 
Do you know what that's called? Reality. 
Time to wake up from your childish 'romantic renaissance man' dream and understand how to actually treat another human being.

*applauds* THANK YOU! I freakin' hate how these so-called "nice guys" act like they should have women falling at their feet and how any woman they want should love them simply because they're "nice" and always carry on like their shit doesn't stink. How in the hell is being a passive-aggressive, possessive, obsessive, jealous, bitter, whiny, manipulative, egotistical, judgmental, entitled, prejudiced ass being nice?! And if being nice is the only trait they think they have, then yeah, I'd see why women would leave them for essentially anyone else, since they can't even do that right. At least the "bad boy" looks like he'd be a fun, interesting time.

An actual nice guy wouldn't need to keep telling the world he was "nice" either. He would do nice things and act like a decent human being just because he could and he felt it was the right thing to do, not because he wanted something out of it. If you're only going out of your way to hold doors open and hand girls the pen they dropped in the hope that they'll eventually "repay" you with a relationship, you're just as much of an asshole as the guy you instantly assume she'll date instead of you (hey, the asshole you think girls always want just might have the same mindset that YOU do, and you just can't see it because your head's too far up your ass!).

And also, if you don't say anything to the girl of your affections, thinking that she'll pick up that you like her, or that she'll start falling for you because she knows how nice you are to her, a) girls with self-esteem don't usually pick guys just on the grounds of "he doesn't treat me like dirt", and b) you can't get mad at her if she dates someone else (note: "someone else" is not automatically an abusive asshole just for being "someone else") since you never said anything or made a move. And if you DO make a move and she wants no part of it, SHE IS ALLOWED TO NOT THINK OF YOU THAT WAY. If she doesn't feel anything, she doesn't feel anything. Nut up, and move on.

This has NOTHING to do with a guy dominating a wretched excuse for a female, this is about a very, very, VERY loathsome "girl" that says straight out


"I really like you right now, but  i know for a fact i will leave you for a grade A a**hole later so in short i you are just something i consider a temporary pleasent thing, oh did i hurt you? Well tough shit, i am the poor vurnable female that can get away with anything i do, and you are the big strong manly man that's supposed to take all the shit i throw at you whitout blinking, because that's what guys are for, it's not like you have feelings or anything."


Yes, EVERY female has a choice! That's as obvious that the sky is blue! If a female meets a guy and then later simply looses interest in him, fine! Things like that happens all the time! only a sad ant pathetic guy refuses to let his ex go, what's the meaning of a relationship if not both of them are happy?


What i DESPISE about this girl, is she's "atleast in the way i see this comic" is just taking a good nice and considerate guy and undermine his confidence and using him! Yes i said it, SHE'S using him!

It's one thing if a couple parts because of things they did not forsee or if they simply grew apart, this wench frikking PLANS and she frikking admits it to dump this guy the very microsecond her "destined bad boy" appears!

In short, don't start a relationship with a guy if you are 100% certain that you will dump him later and by doing that it will break his heart!

I can honestly say, as a female, I have NEVER heard of a girl who meets a kind, considerate, and handsome guy, and PLANS on leaving him for somebody mean and nasty. That makes no sense, and if a girl LIKES being treated like garbage, as I said in my previous post, she is probably mentally ill.

Don't feel bad, she'll be hurt more in the end than you will be. She'll go through dozens of abusive relationships while you'll find someone better right around the corner. I'd have sympathy for them if they weren't so complicit in their misery.

Man, this does hurt, a lot. It happens often enough to be a damn shame.

But on the other hand, it doesn't always happen, so there is some sliver lining there.

So effing true. So annoyingly true. So many girls are interested in the guys that have no interest in them, and yet the guys who ARE interested in them, who are always there for them, never seem to come to their minds as potential partners. Then when the "bad-boy" treats the girl badly (gee, there's a shock), they turn to the nice guy for support, even though they're likely breaking his heart by continuing to chase after these selfish assholes, while completely ignoring the nice guy. And I know someone could raise the argument of looks, but kindness and physical attractiveness are not conflicting characteristics. I know plenty of gorgeous people who are also nice, and plenty of ugly people who are mean. So it's just... women chasing after the guy with the attitude, I guess.

As you say in your description, this is pretty fitting for what it's like to be a romantic.

...Also, I hope this doesn't show up twice. I don't think it went through, the first time. WTF, deviantArt. :hmm:

Every girl's got to experience a douchebag boyfriend. I hear it from folks all the time: it either ends up that they somehow enjoy the abuse, or they really start to appreciate the good men. Like a fresh breeze.
