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.

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.

Problem, us guys are too stupid to get hints. Don't try hints, ever. Trust me, being honest and a bit forward is easier for everyone in the long run.

Pretty good advice. I was fortunate--my crush finally noticed my feelings after I dropped what would have been my last "hint" at him: at a premier midnight showing of a movie (out with friends), I pretended to fall asleep (conveniently) on his shoulder. :XD: I'd been trying to get his attention since senior year in high school; even his mom noticed my attraction before he did. ;)

This is funny in a semi-sad way. It sucks when good guys treat girls well and then really do get left for some bad boy. I also find this funny because that's exactly how I talk to my boyfriend, and I even occasionally joke about leaving him for some bad boy even though he's the perfect mix of gentleman and bad boy. (Who would be stupid enough to leave that?) XP
Anyways, I love this. It's simple, true to how things really happen these days, and funny.

Whenever a fellow male claims to be a nice guy whom heartless women abuse, I feel compelled to link this article. Not saying that you're culpable, only that it helps to check the mirror for blind spots. Reading this helped me make sure my own shyte was in order. Cheers!

Even I'll admit thats pretty damn true. I have 2 friends, a guy and girl, and both went out for 2 years. Anyway, they broke up due to a basic lack of passion and miscommunication... and now the girl is dating an 19 year old whos kind of a dick...

Though I think boys can do the same. However, I don't understand why some people are attracted to 'bad boys/girls'... besides them maybe being fresh to the person and kind of 'screw the rules'. Its almost kind of seductive I suppose

Myself... I'm not into relationships much, but I'd say Im an innate good guy, though I've learned to stretch my boundaries into a more well-rounded person. Just saying XD

while I agree to a degree, girls have a tendency to do this,
being a romantic girl tends to push men away, too.
I think relationships are lose/lose unless you love someone completely and accept that there is more to life than yourself.

why do you think romantic girls push men away?
if a man is being pushed away , it's because he's annoyed, annoyed by repeated un-interesting things, this rule applies on everything except passion and romance.

my own experience: i used to look forward to meet my ex, and every second i was with her, i loved her more , she was so impulsive doing remoatic stuff , it was always fun with her, and in return it was my duty to reward her ( not sex or such but with things, places she loved) , why we broke out, because she had to live in another country with 7 hours different time zones.

Entirely true. I guess, as someone who has found the love of their life, I just understand and appreciate the difference between finding who you were meant to be with & not. It's in human nature to push others away- we are emotionally charged creatures who, for the most part, let our ego come first. Intentionally or not, it's a large part of how we operate.

:/ I'm sorry all of that happened to you. I live in a different state from my man, but I have gone through the pains of getting him to move in with me up here. I've known him for seven years & it's time.

I don't know. I think there are some pretty good general rules to how it should work, though.
1. I have a mix of the two. He's a hilarious asshole who always says what's on his mind, but he's also quite compassionate and surprises you with little acts of kindness all day.
2. I didn't go looking for him. We were best friends for-fucking-ever first.

People are just people. I think all of the depressing statements in regard to this comic really just show that waiting for the right someone, even when they've been under your nose the whole time, is the best way to do it.
Going out and looking for it doesn't often work, especially for younger people.

This is why I steer clear of romantic boys - mostly because I'm not into romantic stuff. It's nice now and then, but it's not fair to the guy that's romantic if I tell him I like romance when really, it's just something I enjoy now and then.

And I honestly hate girls who think they have a right to do this kind of thing. :/
