In popular culture women are sometimes said to not be interested in nice guys , as in common interpretations of the phrase nice guys finish last which originally belongs to baseball. The Cueball -like guy on the left in this picture is presumably frustrated and complaining because he has been rejected by a woman, and thinks it's because he's the "nice guy" type. Cueball's sarcastic interjection implies that saying that women don't want nice guys and presuming to know what women "really want" is actually showing a rejection of that woman's agency, which might be the real reason she rejected him. The title text continues the "conversation", with Cueball implying that he believes that the first guy is bad at taking hints. He offers a "crash course" in hint taking by clarifying outright that he is trying to end the conversation while the first guy continues to follow him.

Welcome to the explain xkcd wiki! Help us finish them! Go to this comic explanation. Cueball has become exasperated with the weight of mask-related knowledge on his mind at all times, citing examples of instances of conversation in which he irritably divulges his knowledge of face masks. White Hat tries to placate him with the idea that this won't go on forever.
Cueball is talking apparently to Megan. He confesses that he has a crush on her. Usually the next step in Western cultures, when someone likes someone else, is to ask the other person out in other cultures, such as Islamic or Indian cultures, it would be more appropriate to request that one's parents contact the parents of the person one has a crush on. But Cueball takes a different route and in the comic he explains his thought process. Presumably he actually explains this to Megan.
One of the main features of university life is sitting through seemingly endless lectures. In most degrees, lectures are going to be a pretty major part of the learning process. You walk through the door, do the sheepish sorry smile-and-wave at the lecturer and try to slip into the nearest seat to avoid making any more fuss. To get to a seat, you now need to ask people to move their legs, bags, or in especially cramped lecture theatres get up and move out of the row entirely. I just think it makes more sense to sit in the middle of rows and spread outwards.
