That one awkward email, text, or instant message. We've all written one.

This was almost exactly how mine and my girlfriend's relationship started almost three weeks ago. So many awkward texts that I sent to her. Can't wait for the next update! This one was cute. I like how you're building on his awkwardness and nervousness, but not in an annoying way like some tend to. :D

He is certainly an awkward bugger, it's fun writing him with Galvin who is the total opposite.

It's definitely great to see such interactions!

Oh, and I meant three years ago, not three weeks. Huge difference ._.

I couldn't help but smile while I read the last panel. I received a reply like that and I was jumping up and down everywhere :D This comic is what I look forward to every Sunday :)

Oh yeah, I have had that 'be cool and casual' first text attempt. It always ends up more awkward than anything =P

Strangely enough, it was the same when I first started writing dialog for my characters. Everything came across weird, wordy, and awkward.

You do a wonderful job matching the art and characters dialog. It feels easy and flows so very well!

I think it's a safe bet to say everyone has had that one email or text where you deleted things a bunch of times and starred at it for longer than you needed to. I went with showing the text in realtime for that reason..

at first this comic was hard for me to get into story-wise due to my sexual preferences and what I usually like to read in a comic, but the more I read it the more I can relate. Great dialog, great art; it has everything.

Thanks Doug glad you dig it, I know it's certainly more of a niche theme, but I try my best to not scare some away while still appealing to the target audience, its a balancing act

So cute. He's going to spend the rest of the night between dancing and panicing!

I love the whole look and feel of your comic.

I really hope I am not the only one who wanted to screech in fury when a simple message turns out to cost 53 DLC.
