Okay, although this comic is not a snap shot of a real event, it's based off of many an instance that has happened to... well most of the people I know. Including myself. This isn't so much making fun of douche bags who move in on perspective lovers when they know you're interested, but making light of a sad truth about all the people involved (hey, if you can't laugh about it, what can you do?).
In short, people should probably be more honest in these situations.... but who are we kidding? That won't happen :P
....aaaaaand once again, this is a humorous observation from my point of view. I'm not trying to antagonize anyone specifically, I'm just making comics here.
