I remember writing this last strip, trying to get an important point across: Roomie won't get jealous. At this point in time, Roomie was feeling pretty aromantic and not at all wanting to focus her attention on one person. So why keep them from getting attention from others?
I remember one reader at a "GGaR Meetup" (I suggested meeting up with readers whenever I went travelling, it was amazing every time!) saying they saw Roomie as poly, through and through, and I do get where they're coming from, but I had a different interpretation.
Though, to be clear, my vision of things doesn't have to influence or negate yours!! Go Get a Roomie is a comic that's out there for you to absorb into your soul, and pooped into your own interpretation.
My own way of seeing Roomie, at that time, was from my own life experience, at that time. Like Roomie, I didn't feel jealous of "sharing" lovers, but at the same time, I didn't feel attached to anyone enough to be calling them partners. To me, Roomie and I had an approach that looked more like "friends with benefits" and an "open sex" life, more than something like having polyamorous relationships, where I feel like it's more "official" and stable between the people concerned, forming a deeper bond.
What would your interpretation be?
