My favorite TV couple of all time. Prepare for the cuteness.
THE KISSERS: Seth Cohen and Summer Roberts from The OC
WHY IT ROCKED: I think this one is all about the PDA. Seth puts himself completely out on the line, in front of tons of their classmates. He gets on top of the freaking coffee cart to profess his love for Summer. It’s all or nothing.
The public announcement/kiss is something that shows up in a ton of rom-coms. I haven’t yet deciphered why this is such a thing. Is it because the guy is putting himself in a dangerous position with a lot of rejection potential? Is it because everyone else is looking on and getting jealous? Or is it something else?
With this kiss, Summer had been hiding her relationship with Seth from everyone at school. She liked him, but she was embarrassed to like him since he’s so dorky and awkward and she’s popular with an image to protect. In this case, the public display was a remedy to their situation. He says, “Acknowledge me now or lose me forever.” And thankfully she does!
What do you think is so appealing about the PDA? Do you like people watching you kiss your significant other? Because I don’t, so I don’t know why it’s romantic in movies…
