Sonya... I hope she preserves her platonic friendship with Peggy.
Why wouldn't she? These two have been nothing but good to each other since the time they first met. Peggy even took upon herself to admonish Zii for being unfair to Sonya after Zii made a horrible mess of everything.

And likewise, Ruby deserves to become the free agent she dreams of being (and could certainly do better than Andy, long term).
The only reason she's with Andy is because Dillon pushed her -- and her inner Gary caved in.

Ruby's sexuality is still a mystery. All we know is that she likes yaoi, which means nothing (scores of lez/bi women like yaoi). She decided to have her first time with Andy because of curiosity, not passion. I'm still waiting for the day she will meet an attractive man or woman and think "OMFG I want to fuck this person SO BAD!" Now that would clear up some things.
We, the old ghosts of Pizen Bluff, who still roam about this dead forum screaming imprecations at the characters and whatnot.

Gary should introduce them to Sonya.

She's hot, trying to get over Zii and (Bonus) loves stupid relationship drama. It'd be a match made in Heaven.
I’d pay to see that :))

It's easy, Gary.

One simple world. One simple syllable. Two letters. One consonant. One vowel.
Personally, I'd append "...and grow up." But everyone has their personal style.
I couldn't have said it better myself.

It's funny that I can recognise that this is an insanely bad situation but I'd still prefer it to Gary getting anywhere near to the unhealthy pair of Zii and Didi. Tracy and James at least aren't bad people, exactly.

Well clearly, Gary should refer them to Kylie.
This isn't a bad idea, although an actual bonafide therapist would be better. It has been a while since we've seen her. Theoretically I could see Matt getting involved with James too, if Gary was wanting to be extra helpful towards James's emerging sexuality. He's been lonely as of late and could do with some company (who might even physically remind him of DIllon).

That was a pretty feeble apology in the end. I had to rub my eyes his morning when I started reading the first sentences. An honest apology from them both!?! Did I wake up in another universe? Gary would be well within reason to tell them to go away too, since they are so obviously full of themselves that they are assuming Gary must want to be with at least one of them. Granted, they are working under the assumption that Gary is Bi and that he wanted to be in the threeway, so they aren't starting square. All participants need to be illuminated to the grapefruiting incident. Gary needs to tell them he is not interested in having a sexual relationship with a man. Her hiding her camgirl show should logically get revealed soon after.

He also needs to tell Tracy his emotions towards her, and that is the trickier part. He obviously would love to be with her physically, and they do have some very common interests. I don't think he's even threatened by her cam-girl sidejob, and he'd probably even get into it given the right motivation. But she is controlling, temperamental, and too egocentric. Mind you, when she feels like she is committed to a partner, she is a very nice person to be with... at least until there is an argument. He has demonstrated the ability to reassert logic back into her tirades, so they do have that working for them relationship-wise. Tough call - I could see Gary pick Tracy... I can almost as easily see him saying "no" to them both. No white lies. Truth time.

Sheesh. He’s had one strip to deal with this so far, and the idiocy of their attitude is so gobsmacking that better men than him would be left stunned for several minutes. Give him time to muster a polite response before you start screaming obscene abuse at the writers and the character.

Nah. Why should he bother? She knows that he shares some of her interests, and she must have realised that he quite likes her. Beyond that, I’m sure that she knows that she’s physically attractive, but actually, Gary of all people should be able to shrug that off. If his experiences to date have one huge benefit, it’s that he can say to any woman who tries manipulating him by flirting, “I’ve been in bed with fashion models, rock chicks, porn stars, co-eds, and the Sex Goddess of Montreal. No offence, but it takes a lot to impress me these days.”

I only now understand what happened in the previous strip...
In that strip, it was like, one look, no words, and James & Tracy knew EVERYTHING the other was thinking! and they both run to beat the other & do it first!
I was thinking 'how can they be so much in sync, it's like telepathy!'
but, turns out, they had it planned since yesterday...

God, don't you just hate these people? All they ever do is take, take, take from Gary without ever offering something meaningful in return. And they're completely wrong for each other, yet stay together in a weird, A Streetcar Named Desire-style set-up where despite having virtually nothing in common that I can see apart from working from the same company, they remain in a friction-based relationship that doesn't seem to offer any benefits except hatesex, which is a weak foundation for a relationship. Forget seeing them break up or being told the truth about the BJ fiasco, now I just want them to go away forever and stop bothering us with their weird... whatever it is they're doing right now.

Well, if you’re going to invoke Streetcar...

Team Yuki completely agrees with Spidrift...

The end is near. Team Yuki strongly suggests everyone go out, get drunk, and get laid. Our time is limited. :-s :-s :-s
