Everything that I am reading seems to imply that Joe blatantly chased after Helene. Perhaps I am forgetting something, but I don't think that he did. When he was sick, he made it sound like it was Alan who did the chasing and he who did the standing in the shadows, not the other way 'round. And if that is so, then all Joe is saying is that he doesn't want Ceilidh to end up like Helene, chasing after him all the time with no success.

Well, Joe swore that "I'm not just stringing you on". I think that a part of him wants this relationship, even if he is not 100% sure that it is a good idea.<P> About the Helene comment... I think he just realized something about Alan & Helene's relationship or about Helene herself. Maybe he hadn't realized that if he keep acting with Ceilidh the way he had acted until last Monday they could have ended like A&H... or maybe he just realized that he doesn't feel for Ceilidh what he feels for Helene (either he feeel something stronger for Helene or he has stronger feeling for Ceilidh)... Or maybe he has remembered something about his story in 9th grade.<P> I hope the next strip will make things clearer.

Joe brought up Alan and Helène as an example of one person lying to another to keep a relationship alive. Joe would have been put in Alan's place had he hidden his true feelings from Ceilidh (just to keep Ceilidh happy). Joe *did* seem to be distracted by that thought, though...<P>You're right, that back in Grade 9, Alan actively pursued Helène, and Joe fell by the wayside. But what Joe is saying in the last panel isn't necessarily related to his relationship with Helène (which never really existed to begin with).<P>Meanwhile, everything is laid out on the table in an extremely blatent manner tomorrow. I suppose I could've just waited 6 hours. ;-)<P>JOSH.<P>------------------
