The Irony

So much truth. For both sexes.

  2. If he wouldn't even look at her, then why is she hanging around him at all? No spark means no hope for any romantic development. I miss the joke, apparently.

    1. Or rather 'I am missing the joke'.

  3. This one is multilayered with irony and sarcasm.

    A small part of it is that Dilbert used to date the coworker who's now asking him to lunch. She fobbed him off, now it's returned with disinterest.

    Other layers are manosphere tropes. Women glued to their narcissistic-supply aka cellphones. Men having to compete with that for the attention of the modern ADD-addled girl-child. Yet the women involved actually being less-than-interesting.

    Dilbert himself mirroring much of this in his response to her.

    Those are a few of the layers of irony and sarcasm.

    1. Women wanting what they can't have, his disinterest in her causing her to become interested in him, wanting his attention, etc etc.

  4. http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/crux/2015/02/13/love-addiction-brain/ - there is also this. Someone who experienced withdrawal symptoms would be leery of repeating the experience.

    1. Cue Alice Cooper "Poison" that I associate with the above.

    2. Angtoria "Addiction" is written from the female perspective, therefore over-dramatized and untrustworthy.

    3. Meh, it's "The Addiction":

      It's somehow fitting, as she is quite the fattie (so not likely to restrict herself about food either). :)
