>not romantically interested in Dipper
>when she said she was worrying about them not being friends anymore, it wasn't because she liked Dipper himself, but all of the things Dipper gets to do like adventuring, solving mysteries, etc and she wanted to be apart of that
that's not how it went though. she totally likes him romantically, just not 'JOHN! MARSHA!' romantically. and she didnt want him trying that bullshit because it doesnt suit either of them
it was never put to rest. he was just done getting antsy. but then he got antsy for getting SOME flirting in, so he did. then a bunch of bullshit happened because dames is nuts. that was the lesson of that episode.
there was also that bullshit with tinywendy but that was just all around misunderstandings by every character. because come ON. their age dif is the same as aang and katara, and wendy is wayy less mature.
Dipper is basically 13, as his birthday is right around the corner in one episode.
It's ridiculous how little they look compared to kids that are basically just a year older than them (14-year-old high schoolers). Anyone watching the show without hearing or reading about their age would assume they're eight or ten.
Guys. For real. If you were a female, could you see yourself being in love with a lead male? If you aren't already into them now, you wouldn't be if you were female, either.
Expecting girls to like you when you wouldn't even like yourself is puerile, short-sighted, and genuinely pathetic.
Also, if I had a friend who went on amazing adventures, then hell yeah I'd want to keep being their friend. But if I could go on adventures by myself, and they no longer wanted to, how would it be wrong for me to continue adventuring without them?
I know that's not what we're talking about, but my point is that it's purely hypocritical to hate on this character for her perceived shortcomings; which are actually irrelevant because the OP completely misread her intentions.
Some people are just terrible at understanding other people, and they find ways to construe that into their own victimization. It's tumblr-sjw-tier patheticness and naivety.
>Also, if I had a friend who went on amazing adventures, then hell yeah I'd want to keep being their friend.
If that was the only reason why you hung out of him though that would make you selfish and vapid, like Wendy.
being in love includes being best friends, plus more stuff. wendy has that with dips, and there's nobody else compatible in gravity falls.. she ahs no other prospects. she's keeping dips around and letting things progress casually and familyishly, not mwahmwah romancewise.
Yeah, she's lots more mature then him physically and mentally, he's only visiting her town for the summer, a few years is a lot at that age especially high schoolers dating middle schoolers, why does she need to like him? This post is weird as fuck. Dipper barely even knows her, it's just a little babysitter crush, he'll get over it like kids do. Honestly her reciprocating would be bizarre.
Also she starts hanging out with them because they're her boss's great niece and nephew and they work at the same place, she tries to be nice and chill with the kids helping out where she works, how is that bad?
