You Gotta Get Emotional Before You Get Physical

<<First Latest>>
View Transcript Lissa: Dude, you didn't fuck anything up because you two, uh, *fucked*, you just got physical really quickly!
That's *okay*!

Alex: You don't get it. I-I don't *work* that way.
There's a fine line between physical intimacy and emotional intimacy.

Alex: Some people can fuck anyone they what, whenever they want.
Causal sex is just a thing that happens naturally to them.
But not to me.

Alex: I need that emotional intimacy.
I need to be able to be honest ant open with someone before anything physical happens.
I wasn't there yet with Sunny.

Lissa: So what *did* happen between you and Sunny?
Alex: We talked. We got really into it.
Then we just stopped, looked into each others' eyes, and decided to do it.

Lissa: You skipped a step.
Alex: Not just any step.
The *most important* step.
Lissa: Alex, I'm so sorry.
Alex: I just...
I can't do this, Lissa.
I fucked up.

5/22/2022, 11:59 AM There's been a part of me that's always kinda known that Alex is demiromantic, I've just never had a reason to bring it up until now.

Also I dunno, I'm kinda proud of the Lissa's li'l up-against-the-table boobsquish in the last panel.

I know I actually watched you make this page and all, but I didn't look at the dialogue so I could still be a bit surprised about what was being said when it did release. As always, a really great page!
5/22/2022, 12:45 PM Aww, thanks! It was pretty fun to stream this page, I totally should do it more often.

As for Alex, we can only hope...
5/24/2022, 9:38 PM I'm the same as Alex when it comes to physical intimacy, but I sure don't cry about it! Not any more, anyway.
5/24/2022, 9:44 PM Alex is young, inexperienced, and quite frankly, probably working through some stuff

They were caught off guard and quite frankly, in hindsight they're kinda uncomfortable about what went down
