The Kiss That Never Comes

For shoujo and romance fans, one of the most important pay-offs to sticking with the series is seeing the heart-melting, squeal-inducing cinematic kiss that finally comes when the two love interests confess their love and get together. In other cases, the kiss is the confession itself. After all those episodes of unresolved tension, the characters look each other in the eyes and can't hold back the instinct to lock lips and progress with their relationship. It's moments like these that fans live for when they are looking forward to the culmination of the true love they've been supporting all season.

But sometimes— quite often, in fact— the longed for kiss never comes. As soon as the perfect moment arrives, the heroine's brother walks in. Or the phone rings. Or maybe the right moment never comes along at all, and the characters maintain a relationship without making it physical. Or maybe the characters get married and start a family and presumably do all of their kissing off stage. But the real question lies in whether or not the closing kiss is necessary in romantic comedies and dramas, or if it should be the characters themselves that carry the weight of the relationship, and not their romantic actions.
