Poor Tai. Finally ready for a real relationship only to be misunderstood and badly timed.

I think that actually following through with an offer of casual sex OR a real relationship at this stage would have been too much, too soon.

I don't think that bringing it up in the first place was the best of ideas, but at least she let it drop. Mind you, as I read that I almost saw the dejection coming off the screen. Ouch.


And I think it's safe to say that Akima wins at bad punmanship. And it only gets worse the more you think about it.

I don't think she retreated per se. She did proffer the no-strings-attached arrangement half-jokingly, because she, too, actually wants a relationship with Dora. Her stammering was because while she was tempted to see if she could go for just the sex, she realized her feelings for Dora would make it far too complicated.

And Dora seems to be completely Oblivious To Love. I'm not 100% I buy that, but I guess we'll have to see.

And Tai, come one, I know you're trying not to get hurt (especially considering she might be similar to Sven, in that she never had a relationship that was based on love instad of sex) but after a certain amount of time not being able to spit it out will even get to you free-spiritied casual sex lesbians (is that even a real thing?).

Maybe Dora knows what Tai is really after, but since Dora isn't ready for that, she's offering the Marten thing as a reason not to explore anything with Tai right now.

This does two things. First. it allows both of them to save face, And second by cutting her off with a more superficial reason before she can make any kind of offer, Dora doesn't have to reject the idea of a serious relationship with Tai down the road.

Of course, if my theory is correct, it would mean that Dora is a fucking Drunken Master of relationship-foo, which history tells us is nowhere near the case.

There's also the fact that while Dora and Marten were still dating, Tai told Marten that she wouldn't be able to take his sloppy seconds if they broke up. And, Marten may have told Dora that for whatever reason...

Given that Tai's actually having a more mature viewpoint towards this, them dating actually wouldn't be an awful idea, now. It wouldn't last, and it would count as a rebound for Dora, but what it could do is teach Tai more about what she's looking for - she's clearly put Dora on a pedestal, and them dating would knock Dora clean off that pedestal.

This theory is so beautiful that I want it to be true. Screw observations, supporting evidence and the other things we usually require from a scientific theory before we can accept it.

I don't think Tai actually has a problem with Dora being sloppy seconds. That might have been Tai trying to make herself feel better about Dora not being available then. As soon as Marten and Dora broke up, those feelings went away pretty quick.

Whether Dora knows about her comments or not, she did seek Tai out at the party. She could have gone home after the date.

And your right. Being in a relationship with anyone usually knocks them off any pedastals on which they might have been placed.

I don't really know whether Tai and Dora would be a good match. And neither do they (whatever that means for fictional characters.) There's really only one way to find that out, and that's to give it a try.

It seems like Dora knows (finally!) that now is not a good time to try something like that, and if she did it would just be doomed to failure. But she's trying preserve the possibility for the future.

Either that, or she's completely oblivious to everything, which is still a possibility.


At least now, everyone in the gang can hang out and be friends again.

Oh please, Tai barely knows her.  It's all about looks as Tai is an horny, immature little girl.

I don't know why any of you are rooting for this to happen; there is a unwritten code that all friends of the ex couple should wait six months before pursuing anything.  Tai not only is breaking this code, she just apologized to Marten for trying to get together with Dora.  Tai is pretty much a horrible person.

Yes, and that observation also ties in with a thought I recently had which is that Tai seems mainly to be suffering from a major crush.

I can't work out whether it is a shame or for the best that Dora didn't let her finish that sentence.

Dora does have a lot on her mind right now, so she can be forgiven for being oblivious (which is how she seems to me, although the theory of akronnick is appealing).

From the look on Tai's face in panel 3, I'm guessing that she was about to say something along the lines of "I would jump your bones in a second but I don't want to because I really like you and don't just want a physical relationship". I mean, she's blushing pretty intensely.

So I am personally glad that Dora cut her off. While we know a lot about the guys Dora dated, do we know anything about the ones that were interested in her that she turned down? She's attractive, witty and successful...I can imagine she's had to turn a few people down. Maybe she's smarter/better at letting people down gently that she isn't dating than she is at actually being in a relationship? Because that really was the ideal moment to step in and avoid awkwardness. Kudos to Dora!

I'm so glad Tai has been shot down. That's one complication we don't need. I didn't used to mind Tai, but I've developed a fierce dislike of her lately.

Since this arc seems concluded (at last!), I wonder what will be next?

I don't know why any of you are rooting for this to happen; there is a unwritten code that all friends of the ex couple should wait six months before pursuing anything.  Tai not only is breaking this code, she just apologized to Marten for trying to get together with Dora.  Tai is pretty much a horrible person.

Not horrible, just a bit of an idiot who doesn't care about anyone's pleasure except her own in the long run? She apologized for Marten, only to go after Dora any way.

Yet, guess that makes Tai human.

You know the art here really shows that Dora has half a decade or so on Tai. Especially the final panel. I look at that and I see a girl and a woman.

First post here.

The last few comics show a lot of character growth in Dora. She didn't rush into a rebound relationship, she had a moment of epiphany about herself while talking with Jim, and from her expression in the last few panels both with Marten and Tai, she's happy about finding balance within herself.  

= = =

On a completely different note, I like how Jeph has been experimenting with different perspectives / "camera angles".  The low-angle shot from last Friday; the gradual close-up on Monday whie Marten and Dora were talking; and especially the varying close-up / zoom out for comic emphasis when Dora walks into the party.  Nice stuff.

Here is a example of the rule, or law, or code in question. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88nAlb0qP5E

However, I'm not judging Tai. I feel any kind of intimate relationship for Dora or Marten would be too soon if it was with a member of the regular cast.

So I am personally glad that Dora cut her off. While we know a lot about the guys Dora dated, do we know anything about the ones that were interested in her that she turned down? She's attractive, witty and successful...I can imagine she's had to turn a few people down. Maybe she's smarter/better at letting people down gently that she isn't dating than she is at actually being in a relationship? Because that really was the ideal moment to step in and avoid awkwardness. Kudos to Dora!

You raise a interesting question. I would add to it by asking if any of the bad relationships Dora's had in the past are with women? Or has all her experiences with women been of a casual nature?

See, that may mention the code in question, but it also ends with "the great taste of Miller Lite", so why should I trust anything in that commercial?

i assume dora is joking? about that being the (only?) reason to not have casual sex with tai?
i wanna think she is joking.
i wanna like dora again.

You got a better one?  Especially since she offered to have casual sex with Jim just a few strips ago.

More importantly, it doesn't really matter; the point is that this is the reason Tai herself gave while they were still dating, so I'm guessing Marten told her.

I could have pointed to other sources for the "rule" but I felt the commercial was more amusing.

It says "don't belittle your relationships with men by suggesting that any motivation other than to please/impress your wife/future wife is something you should have grown out of after college."

Jeff's drawing of dejected Tai is absolutely spot on.

Dora does have a lot on her mind right now, so she can be forgiven for being oblivious (which is how she seems to me, although the theory of akronnick is appealing).

I'm not sure she is, Dora in Panel 4 (to me) looks like someone who's accepted her situation and is ready to move on.

I'm so glad Tai has been shot down. That's one complication we don't need. I didn't used to mind Tai, but I've developed a fierce dislike of her lately.

Since this arc seems concluded (at last!), I wonder what will be next?

We've not heard anything for some time about Marten's father and his wedding. But, I expect we'll get wacky hi-jinx to offset this before anything else (and we still haven't seen any caterwauling, Jeph may have a Wham episode for Friday..)

I thought Dora and Marten meeting was the thing to make us all go caterwauling?
