Shakespeare uses both romantic and identity crushes to show that parents should take teenage crushes seriously by providing examples of stories and lessons he put together into his plays. For example, One of his many famous plays he has created that is a great example of both romantic and identity crushes is Romeo and Juliet. A romantic crushes is formed by finding someone whom they find powerfully attractive; moreover, someone who they feel excited to be around, and with whom they want to spend a lot of time. Parents most often know not to take these romantic crushes serious because they know sooner or later their children will outgrow these crushes and move onto the next crush: “Most romantic crushes don’t last very long because once the
The next successors in line to each house, Romeo to the house of Montagues and Juliet to the house of Capulets, fall in love with one another at first sight. Despite their forbidden romance, they are married in secret, promising their everlasting love for each other. Throughout the book, from the moment they meet each other on the dance floor, Romeo and Juliet continue to make reckless decisions that they justify by using passion as an excuse, declaring that they must take these actions because of their passionate love for one another. In the end, their infatuation for each other lead them to take foolish and unnecessary deeds, ultimately leading to their death. Passion can often overcome one 's emotions and cause them to dismiss all common sense, in turn leading them to take dangerous and thoughtless actions that risk the safety of themselves and oftentimes
Another point to consider is the consummation of love cited in the original writing; Even though the love between the two was passionate, the couple only consummates their love after they are married, something that prevents them from losing the sympathy of the public. It is possible that Romeo and Juliet function as an equation of love and sex, with death. Throughout the tragedy, he and she fantasize about this "fulminating equality", usually attributed to a lover. For example, Mr. Capulet is the one who first realizes Julieta 's "death", comparing this factor with the deflowering of his daughter, and, a little later, Julieta compares, erotically, Romeo with death. Just before committing suicide, he decides to use
Vic has in his mind that it is very easy for him to get any girl; however his young personality is soon going to lead him to a disaster. When Vic arrives at the party with Enn a girl opened the door and he asks for her name right away, after that he says: “that has to be the prettiest name he had ever heard”... “ what was worse that he said it like he meant it” (Gaiman 120). This means he is already flirting with a girl he does not even know, as the party goes on Vic become conscious of what error he has committed. Everything comes to a conclusion when Vic got out of the room, he was with the girl he met at the door; he was scare and crying, “he wiped his mouth [and says] she wasn’t a—[then] stopped” (Gaiman 126). After all the fun Vic thinks he had, his action teach him a new experience; he said “she wasn’t a” and “stopped” the reader can infer she was not a girl.

Instances of this attitude are made evident whereby Pip seems to have seen his opportunity of going off to London as key to “winning” the love of his life, Estella, perhaps Estella will notice his success and change her attitude toward him, perhaps Estella will eventually fall madly in love with him like he is in love with her. This is of someone who portrays dandyism, cares much about how they appear. Another point of dandyism shown by Pip is the confession of the lies he has told Joe, Mrs Gargey and Mr Pumblechook regarding his visit to Mrs Havisham “I wish my boots weren`t so thick, nor my hands so coarse. I knew I was common and I that I wished I was not common” (Dickens90). Pip seems to care much about his appearance that it makes him feel

Also, Blanche plays emotional games with men to get the attention she needs to feel good. For example, when Blanche sees the paper boy, she takes out a scarf to try and seduce him, quickly kisses him without waiting for consent, and rushes him on his way without a word from him, just to play with his emotions (pg. 88). Even when something bad happens to Blanche, she copes by making a lie to cover up her emotions. After Blanche was raped and Stella did not believe what had happened, she falsely told her sister “…the rest of [her] time [she] is going to spend on the sea…”(pg.
Kilbourne claims that Victoria’s Secret advertisements are sexual and promise young women that if they wear their lingerie, it will make them irresistible. Kilbourne is saying that Victoria’s Secret is promising these young women that they will be desirable if they wear their lingerie.

An additional claim that Kilbourne makes is that advertisements with hostile and indifferent men are encouraging young boys to become these type of men.
