I suppose this isn’t an entirely unhealthy response to rejection, assuming one isn’t living in total denial. And in this case, Trey is definitely in denial.

Of course, there are worse outcomes to dating while time traveling. You could be like Fry on Futurama and become your own grandfather. I think that was how it went, at least (I assume the Internet will quickly correct me in the comments below if wrong).
Still, as a way of thinking positively, I like the time travel outlook.
I never found much humor in people actually using lines and trying to be smooth. I find it much funnier when they simply abandon all hope of trying and try some sort of desperate hail Mary pass. You have to admire that.
I think a good visualization exercise for desperate single people is to imagine that suddenly you’re the opposite sex. Now, would you sleep with you? No? Then that may explain some of your dating draught. It might also be a good lesson that you’re setting your sights too high. Maybe you should settle. Maybe you should settle–for you.
And no, that is not a masturbation joke.
Ending a relationship never really goes the way people hope. There’s usually some buildup and anticipation, and then there’s reality. This dissonance would make for a wonderful reality series.
I should note that this strip is purely fantasy. Everyone knows there is no real way to escape the friend zone.
No, this is not a strip bashing Lincoln for being gay. I have no idea if he was or not (there are apparently some historians who believe so, or at least making money peddling theories). The ultimate “friend zoning” would be this relationship, but is in no way encouraging violence against gay people. It’s a joke.
This disclaimer is placed here not to defend ourselves against gay people (they usually have a splendid sense of humor), but to keep intolerant idiots from reading too shallowly into it.
Every person dreads being banished to the Friend Zone. What’s funny to me is the moment of realization when it suddenly dawns on you that’s where you’re headed. I can imagine an entire Seinfeld episode on trying to prevent that placement. They would do something very clever. We, on the other hand, used portals.
You’re supposed to laugh at the comic and not us. Stop laughing at us. No, we can’t still be friends.
Guys love to pile on the complaints of women only dating bad boys. Of course, most men only judge women by exterior appearances. Point? Both sexes are shallow and largely responsible for their own dating problems. Still, it makes for great explanations on why everyone else’s dating philosophy is so wrong.
I always love the dating stalk. No, not the person who stalks someone they’ve dated, but the person who stalks someone who is dating someone else while hoping for them to break up. I can’t imagine anything less attractive, yet you hear about people doing it on a fairly regular basis. Maybe it’s more successful than I realize?
