A KISS IS JUST A KISS . . . OR NOT
It happened again last night as I was watching one of my favorite shows. Boy meets girl. Boy likes girl. Girl likes boy. They go on a date and reach the end where we're all wondering . . . will he kiss her? The romantic in me sighs. Then he kisses her tenderly. Ah, all is right in the world.
Then the shirt comes flying off and they're headed for the bedroom.
I'm weary of TV treating sex as if it's the automatice conclusion to a first kiss. What happened to romance? Anticipation? Morality? The characters on TV aren't waiting for the second date, much less the wedding. I mean, I've been out of the dating scene a long time, but somebody please tell me it's not like this in real life.
