I’m crazy about you, I just can’t be your rebound guy… ugh, sorry, can’t keep a straight face. I’m here for sex, you in?


This Nick Galifianakis cartoon was originally published on November 4, 2012 for the Carolyn Hax advice column in The Washington Post and other syndicated newspapers. The illustration shows a man who won’t commit because he claims his partner’s still not ready in the wake of her last breakup and so he doesn’t want to risk getting hurt when the truth is he’s keeping his options open, but wants to have sex in the meantime.
