    His friends are so concerned and are worried! Nate wants what is best for Daphne. He truly cares! “I think so too. I mean SHE’S perfect for ME…”

    “…But I guess I’m not perfect for her.”

    Deep breaths. in and OUT.

    The facial expressions (Nate’s eyes, Teddy and Francis’ eyebrows -showing concern), body movements (Nate sitting down by his locker), and the chiseled speech bubble showing Nate’s concern and worry.

    I actually DON’T think Nate and Daphne are perfect for each other. Reason being that he is not smart, and the thing that created the idea of a relationship was Nate being smart for literally 5 seconds. If Nate had not just randomly became smart for that one moment during the partner assignment, Daphne would have just written off Nate. Nevertheless boooo, breaking up is a big L.

    Lingering guilt, but you’re not the one responsible Nate, it’s the 3rd parties who interject themselves to have their way, and how they’ll only be happy once things go their way. I remember a comment on the site 6 years ago, that said: “If a girl breaks up with the guy, she has a reason. If the boy breaks up with the girl, then he’s stupid.” Nate’s not stupid in this case, neither Daphne’s got a prime reason to breakup.

    This is what makes Francis and Teddy true friends as opposed to Daphne’s. When Daphne and Nate first started dating Francis and Teddy jokingly said they’d only be together 3 weeks. But when Nate believes they actually might break up they immediately question why cause they never (truthfully) believed Daphne was too good for him, they knew they both made each other happy and that’s what mattered.

    The thing people are overlooking is that this “breakup” is very interesting because it is solely based on rumors and peer pressure, unlike Nate’s other breakups.

    Francis and Teddy are way better friends than Daphne’s friends. Francis and Teddy see how well the relationship works, and know that Nate’s history shouldn’t break them up. Daphne’s friends are just mean and manipulative, and they don’t care about Daphne’s feelings for Nate.

    Francis, you’re one to speak. You were the one who said that he wouldn’t last with her for a week or month, I’m not sure.

    Strip rating: 7/10 Nate, you may not be perfect for her, but she likes you for who you are, not for what you’ve done and haven’t done… Honestly, Nate’s depression here is contagious, this is nice storytelling.

    This is exactly why Nate and Daphne shouldn’t break up. This is easily the most growth Nate has shown in any of his relationships. There’s no chance that Nate is this humble with any of his previous girlfriends; he would have seen them as the problem.

    He broke up with Kelly for purely selfish and egotistical reasons. He wasn’t really ready for a relationship with Angie. Trudy was a self-centered jerk who deserved Nate dumping her. Daphne makes Nate better and makes Nate want to be better.

    See how vicious gossip can be? Two people who enjoyed spending time together are now miserable because some busy- bodies couldn’t keep their opinions to themselves.

    Yes it’s a comic but something very similar happened to my dad. He married a lovely lady that cared for him. My brother didn’t approve of her and managed to drive them apart. Even after they separated they called each other several times a day. It was sad that they couldn’t spend their final days together.
