Now I may not be the one to ask for romantic advice, but about now is when you chuck that phone out the window and fake your own death.

I'm not the best for such advice either, but that seems legit

Jon should mention that at least it's not a nudist beach!




(As far as he knows...)

I'd just go with a roster, and describe all three of the ladies in question as already having boyfriends. As far as he knows it's even true, isn't it? This is Jon so I bet he could still screw up doing that somehow, but that takes genuine talent at self-sabotage to accomplish.

And way to live down to Ken's description of you as a flailing idiot, Jon. Maybe he should've talked to her about this before he left, to at least give Tilly the (not really a) choice to intentionally avoid the mountain of awkward.

Yeah at would be the safest option, but then again, a woman being in a relationship hasn't stopped Jon from being tempted before...

Yeah maybe he could have told her earlier, but I'm the sort to avoid conversations I think will be awkward until the last possible moment, and I guess so is Jon... Hey, he gets his stupidity from somewhere!

Eh, at this point Jon being tempted mostly seems to result in him flailing like an idiot for the entertainment of bystanders. As long as this isn't too hard on the objects of his temptation that's mostly a good thing... for everyone else, right?

Aha, so you're saying that suffering really is the source of artistic inspiration.

How about this, Jon:

"Yeah, there are three women: one I kissed and then threw up on so I'm not high on her 'would date again' list, one I've had a serious crush on since I met her despite her very large boyfriend who is a clown, and the other is my brother's nymphomaniac girlfriend."

She'll either believe you and give you the business, laugh her ass off and then give you the business, or laugh her ass off and then ask if Paul is into "the group thing" because you used the word "large". However it would turn out, don't even think about telling her, "Nope, no girls here!!!", you dolt. :P

Yeah I think Gemma would be the easiest to explain: "She's going out with my brother and I'm not convinced she knows what my name is."

Also "very large boyfriend who is a clown" is maybe the funniest description of Paul I've read

Well, despite being an English major, Jon's command of the language is decidedly flimsy in certain circumstances, which is one reason he's in a pickle so often. ;)

Haha yeah can confirm, studying English in uni doesn't equip you with social graces. In my experience, quite the opposite.
