  1. I am so glad I haven’t been “the other person” since high school. Never worth it.

  2. Speaking as the fiancée right now:

    Fuck cheaters, and fuck other women (to a slightly lesser degree because they really have no responsibility to you, except as a decent human being)

    Way too many feels with this.

    • I know from experience it can be hard to believe when the pain is fresh, but there are people out there who will strive to honor their relationship agreements in letter and spirit. Sorry this happened to you.

  3. Great topic. Couldn’t help wanting to read another panel instead of the Robyn lyrics.

  4. Spin off comic idea, all comics based on Robyn songs–
    Robyn! The Musical: The Comic!

  5. “my money is on you ruining yourself” accurately describes the origin and demise of almost every relationship I’ve had ever…TOO REAL.

  6. This comic is always so good but this is particularly good.

    “my money is on you ruining yourself.” !!!

    It captures being the other person and talking with your friends about it SO well. like oof.
