-->'''Gary:''' Think an entire community committed to keep you from having sex. Telling you that everything you feel is distracting you from spiritual fulfillment.\\
'''Zii:''' So no flirting with a hot-to-trot preacher's daughter? oo! In a short pleated skirt!\\
'''Gary:''' All the girls my age seemed to delight in playing mind games with me.



** His affair with Sonya rapidly collapses because she is passionate, with a love of excitement and novelty -- things Gary is very much lacking in the ways she wants, leading her to dump him out of sheer boredom.

** Yuki is attracted to Zii, leading to an on-off relationship; had a relationship with Gary, and remains attracted to him; is [[spoiler:more than]] somewhat attracted to Sonya, despite hating her, [[spoiler:eventually leading to an angry sexual relationship which has also ended up involving Kiley]]; and ''notices'' [=DiDi=] as much as anyone else (and they've each ''chastised'' the other at different times, but that wasn't sexual, honest).

* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: Sonya, originally a waitress Zii tricks into making out with her.
** Notable in that she doesn't invoke the trope until later that night ... while eating Zii out.
** After that, she mentions it quite obsessively, on a daily basis. That is to say, she apparently eats girls out, on a daily basis (her boyfriend has taken to bringing other girls home for threesomes), while invoking this trope.
--->'''Sonya:''' Thanks to ''you'', I eat ''pussy'' on a ''nightly basis!''\\
''('''*CRASH*''' as Allie overhears and drops a pot of coffee)''\\
'''Sonya:''' I'm... I'm really not a lesbian!
** She continues to invoke it occasionally after becoming a major character in the comic, [[IfItsYouItsOkay apparently classing her love for Zii as an exception]] (to the amused confusion of Allie, her friend and colleague), although eventually someone mentions the word "bisexual" in her hearing, and she briefly wonders if that may be an acceptable label for herself. (She's not overly bright.)

* ArtEvolution: The art style overall has remained pretty consistent for such a long-running comic, though the series slowly shifts away from a straightforward ''ArchieComics'' style and occasionally incorporates a few manga features like enlarged eyes.

** Aside from the art, the ''ArchieComics'' references are also numerous: BettyAndVeronica get mentioned ("Archie's marrying Betty AND Veronica?"), Sandra has been compared to Archie, and the comics themselves occasionally appear on-panel. Possibly a nod to Giz's sometime employer: she's drawn issues for ''Archie''.

** Yuki, being an all-round {{Cloudcuckoolander}, later also takes to [[http://www.ma3comic.com/strips-ma3/i_thought_this_would_help stalking Matt]] -- not because she likes him, but because she wants to practice heterosexual sex with someone she ''doesn't'' care about, while she's still prone to violent fugues.

* StalkerWithACrush: Attraction and infatuation all too easily leads some of these characters into behaviour that, in the real world, would justify a call to the police:
** Dillon is prone to sneaking secret photos of attractive, unsuspecting straight men -- including Gary, towards whom his behaviour becomes increasingly manipulative and infatuated for a while. His behavior toward Jerzy in ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'' gets a bit weird, too.

** Later, Yuki realizes that she's attracted to Gary, and leaves Zii alone. However, once Sonya realises that she's in love with Zii, she takes over the function. Unfortunately, by then, Zii is trying to maintain a monogamous relationship with Erik. This doesn't stop Sonya, who deduces from Zii's treatment of herself when they first met that Zii didn't take boyfriends seriously (despite Zii's insistence that this case was somehow different), and her actions become increasingly [[LoveMakesYouEvil morally dubious]] as she not only exploits Zii's hot buttons, but also tries unsuccessfully to seduce Erik. She does realize that she had neglected to tell Zii that she loved her as well as wanting her for sex, until it was too late, leading to an odd little PetTheDog moment (February 19 2013, strip 710, NSFW). But she tends to bounce back from setbacks; this doesn't stop her, and nor does the prospect of competition from [=DiDi=] for Zii's affections. She does begin to wonder how she could get past Zii's "playing hard to get", but then Peggy [[OperationJealousy comes to her assistance]].

** Zii and Amber get into a specific friends-with-benefits relationship after Zii calls Amber in desperate need of stress relief.
** Matt and Kiley refer to their rather passionate sexual relationship as a process of [[IntimateHealing mutual therapy]] between friends; Kiley wants to think of herself as a cool, objective therapist, and Matt doesn't see himself as a one-woman man. However, [[http://www.ma3comic.com/strips-ma3/just_in_mutual_therapy it then becomes clear to readers that they are potentially becoming a couple,]] with strong hints of real mutual affection. Matt and Kiley, however, develop a bad case of shared SelectiveObliviousness, leading to disaster.

** Peggy calls on Gary for stress relief. Surprisingly, although she's using him as an outlet for her pegging fetish despite his discomfort with that, their subsequent conversation is not only friendly but unusually thoughtful and constructive.

** Another bonus story has Peggy initially objecting to the trope, but then finding it amusing to get ''Gary'' dressed up in a "sexy nurse" outfit.



** The idea is also played for (slightly cruel) laughs after Yuki and Gary first have full intercourse. Yuki, who was in a partial fugue state at the time, convinces herself that is was passionate "Lovemaking to make the gods weep!" Actually, she was psychotically violent, and almost throttled Gary.
