Yep . . .That IS what he said.

Hey there, reader. It’s Heather here, the creator of ThingsMyExSaid. Some of you have maybe  noticed some serious cartoon silence on my end here over the past few months. It wasn’t you, it was me. And I’m still taking some time. But I wanted to reach out and let you guys know some of the cool developments that are going on behind the scenes here at TMXS.

First of all- it speaks so much about you guys and the content  readers like you  have provided for this website, that despite my complete and utter lack of posting or publicizing, we’re still getting several hundred visitors a month! And the quotes keep coming! If you’ve submitted a quote in the last several months, just know it didn’t go unnoticed and it’s safely incubating in our giant quote database, faring much better than all the houseplants I’ve neglected over the years.

The main reason the website has been so quiet is we’ve been planning our official launch celebration   in New York City- more details to come on that later. Just expect some fun and wacky shenanigans coming up around the New Year.

In the meantime, because I am that needy,  I have a request: What are these two men are conversing about  in this 1950s romance comic? I invite you to post in the comments section below.

What are these men talking about? You decide!

As I’m sure we all agree, many a relationship has been saved in semantics.

Just kidding.

I said you were thick

Hmmm. Maybe he’s calling her dumb? Somehow I think that’s worse.


Everybody moves at their own pace when it comes to relationships. Sometimes, you fall into step with someone easily. Other times, it’s too fast or too slow. Are you waltzing while they’re doing the tango? Or the foxtrot?

In the case of this reader, here, I do have to agree that if you can’t tell after 5 months whether you love someone, the answer is probably no.

Spent enough time togetherLooks like they had spent enough time together to come to the relationship’s conclusion.


Sometimes, we all need some space.

I need some space

Sometimes, taking that space makes you an insensitive jerk.

 


Happy Tuesday! How many of you are city dwellers? The struggle is real.

Working in the City

Dating outside your borough? Look at your life, look at your choices.


That’s right. Five whole days until it’s impossible to get a restaurant table. And forget getting seen with any of your new friends, making Saturday plans on Valentine’s Day just adds a whole new level of complicated to a casual or pre-what-are-we-conversation relationship. Best avoided. I recommend volunteering to babysit for your coupled-and-progenied friends!

And there’s this.

Spending every moment with you

 


It’s that time of year, again! When your eyes are assaulted by red and pink in all the shop windows, and when the conditioning to associate chocolate with sex kicks into high gear. (Man, I could use some chocolate, right about now…)

It’s almost Valentine’s Day! And in honor of that, we here are TMXS are taking off our lazy hat and putting on our re-purpose apron. That’s right, we are going to give you a countdown to the big day itself, when we will introduce our first new comic of 2015!

Remember this?

don't count if you're drunk

And it’s not that I’ve been totally lazy, if you’re wondering where the regular posts went. (Dare I flatter myself that you’ve wondered?) In the few months since regular updates stopped happening I moved countries, fulfilled two separate performance contracts in different states and saw a workshop production of a show that I’m writing go up across the pond. #humblebrag

But really the reason why I took a break was a nice dose of heartache. No, not another failed attempt at a relationship (although that happened, too), but some genuine TMXS-related heartache. We got rejected for a grant that would have made TMXS: The Series become reality right at your fingertips, and after riding that roller coaster of emotions it was time for a little break.

But like anyone who ignores the notion that insanity is the doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results, we’re back! After all, isn’t that what love is all about?
