    The messed up part is imagining you should have it all together when most of us don’t. The reason we live one day at a time is because it’s so difficult to live now and later at the same time…impossible in fact!

    Bernice’s other parts: Her lips. And according to her dream, Nil wants only 30% of them. (Honestly, whatever physical thing Bernice wants, Nil is pretty half-hearted about it in this dream—not exactly mermaid stuff there.)

    Bernice has not got around to thinking about what a kid from either one would be like. One would be part cyclops, and from the other, one part Neanderthal. Just wait ’til she tries to wrap her head around that one…

    Nil is obviously into Bernice and wants a relationship; Jack’s a nice guy, but outide of giving Bernice a goldfish, which hopefully hasn’t died, I haven’t see anything that even remotely suggests that he wants to be emotionally or physically involved with Bernice, except in Bernice’s dreams that is. Of course there is something to be said for casual sex, but I just don’t see Bernice going down that road.

    I think you don’t know these guys very well, Bernice. Both are acting and talking out of character. Methinks you are projecting upon them your ideals and the whims for them to be wanton of you when in real life, they are not like that. Heck, Jack is not even interested in you. I get that. I had a crush on a guy for a long time knowing he was not interested in me but that never killed my crush for him. I never understood this phenomenon. Thankfully, once in college, I forgot about him.

    Hilarious! Bernice is really messed up, even in love she talks about percentages! It’s a bit sad that she’s only able to make this inner talk in a dream. But if that’s the only way for her to deal with her problem, good for her! I just wonder what Luann will hear and understand, Bernice is probably still talking in her sleep. But of course, if Luann tries to tell her BFF about what she heard, even with the best of her intentions, Bernice will get mad and call her a nosy spy.

    So many critical voices, but if it were other than Bernice would there be? She is confronting her basic personality issues, how to handle her intimate desires and potential romantic partner while at the same time having such a constrained personality. A solution may or not appear, but it will have some hilarity in the middle of the sadness.

    Jack might not be as intellectually “deep” as Nil, but he is plenty intelligent, albeit in a different way — the kind of way that will make him a great veterinarian. I wouldn’t want Nil diagnosing my cat any more than I would invite Jack to a Noam Chomsky book club meeting.

    Also if she likes Nil so much more for his brains than his body, why do they always seem to meet just to smooch?

    Anyhow, neither of those gentlemen seem to be a good fit for Bernice. I think Jack & Luann could work.

    Freud understood dreams to be messages from the unconscious. He viewed dreams as manifest symbols of latent pathology, a storehouse of unwanted and dreaded content. Jung, agreed with the unconscious as the origen, but concluded that our darkest dreams might contain imagery that illustrates our internal conflicts _and point to their cure as well. _

    So! Is this dream a manifestation of Freudian sexually repressed pathology? Or a Jungian clue to resolving her feelings for two potential suitors? Her negotiation over sharing seems to favor the latter.

    But, HEY! I’m only kidding. It’s just a comic strip folks. 8^ )

    There are times when a woman has to say what’s on her mind. Even though she knows how much it’s gonna hurt. Before I say another word, let me tell you, I love you. Let me hold you close and say these words as gently as I can.

    There’s been another man that I’ve needed and I’ve loved. But that doesn’t mean I love you less. And he knows he can’t possess me and he knows he never will. There’s just this empty place inside of me that only he can fill.

    That’s enough, I hate the direction this strip has gone, and this current arc is just… the last straw, unfollowing

    Bernie’s first true psych insight! She is indeed messed up.

    Recognition of the fact is the first step toward recovery—for some folks….

    I like Jack – it’s a shame Bern only appreciates his physique when he has more going on. He is a solid friend, likes animals, is upbeat, and is an overall good guy. Bern is certainly projecting her own desire onto Jack – he is not interested in her, and she has no clue. And poor Nil. He deserves someone who won’t be making stupid puritanical rules about making out. And who doesn’t want his buddy, too. Bern doesn’t warrant this kind of attention. Maybe give some of it to Luann, you know, the eponymous character of this strip?

    On the bright side, her knowing how messed up she is proves that she’s not that far gone.
