This spontaneous love is exemplified even more so when Hermia mutters the words “since night you loved me, yet since night you left me” (3.2.275). Much like today’s generation, specifically amongst people in high school and even college, it is not uncommon for young people to go through multiple significant others. The similarity between Shakespeare’s generation and today’s is seen in the way that young people claim to love one another and then soon after end abruptly. This adds to the spontaneity of young love that Shakespeare tries to illustrate through the inclusion of the love juice. The inconsistent love written in by Shakespeare is characteristic of young love in today’s society as well as
Romeo and Juliet's relationship is based on lust because of how long they knew each other, their age, and their forbidden love. A relationship based on true love takes time to develop. The text states, “Now Romeo is beloved and loves again, Alike bewitched by the charm of looks”(Shakespeare 2.Prologue.5-6). Romeo and Juliet had just met and they were already bewitched by each other (2.Prologue.6).
SUMMARY In the short story, “How to Date a Browngirl, Blackgirl, Whitegirl, or Halfie”, author Junot Diaz uses the stereotypes of different races and social classes to teach the audience how to date young women.

In the beginning of the story, he begins with describing how he would act or behave upon having different dates.
‘It Happened One Night’ is often considered as the foundation of romantic comedies and the first film belonging to the Screwball Comedy genre, which was predominant in the 1930s and early 1940s. (Mizejewski 17). Wes Gehring summarizes the essential characteristics of this genre as follows: a story about a rich girl and a comic, mild-mannered anti-hero, who at first does not love the rich heroine (245). The man is unaware of his own unhappiness and worn out by the rich girl while the film itself is dominated by comedy and childlike arguments (Gehring 245). More in depth characterizations of the genre presuppose class-conflicts and the overcoming of social class boundaries (Rapf 195), and define Screwball Comedy as “’the comedy of equality,
William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing is a comedic drama. This play provides a perfect blend of drama, as well as a fair amount of comedic relief, sometimes seemingly at the Inappropriate of times. In Act 4 Scene 1, lines 314-342, Benedick and Beatrice have already proclaimed their love for each other, after Claudio has called off his wedding with Hero. They are so blinded by the fact that one loves the other and vise-versa, they seem to allow all of their emotions to take ahold of them. The audience gets a dramatic view with a light comedic undertone; they are saying all these things about loving one another, because they think the other loves them.

Romance films are usually all about the existence of a relationship and the passion and love that two characters can feel for each other. This is shown in Her but unlike the classic romance movie, Her does not end up with a “happy ending” where the two characters involved end up together forever. Her’s approach to romance could come across as cynical, showing that the OS, which is debatably real or unreal, outgrows the man who hides behind letters or operating systems in order to express his emotion. His view of romance seems infantile, while Samantha’s is all about seeking to

The rest of the movie is how Sandy changes herself to stay with Danny.

Billy Wilder’s 1959 Some Like It Hot is a romantic comedy that makes a point, consistently throughout its run, to overturn established conventions of genre, playing on not only storytelling tropes but the celebrity status of its stars, Marilyn Monroe (Sugar Kane), Tony Kurtis (Joe) and Jack Lemmon (Jerry). As with any film made under the star system of Hollywood’s Golden Age, certain expectations come with a film depending on which stars are attached to it.

What I find interesting is that New York during the 1960’s became highly gentrified where most of the “tranny bars and sex bars disappears” where the middle-class replaced them with “ tourists, coffee and fashion shops” In effort to displace gay people from New York. As a result of thus, many activist groups began to create campaigns to mobilize politically (p. 40). Rosa von Praunheim’s It is Not the Homosexual Who is Perverse, but the Situation in Which He Lives (1970) film tells a story of a homosexual male (Daniel)
