The first kiss, or first embrace, or first sharing the same sleeping space, is often very contrived - and not consensual on one (or both) sides. In a romantic drama love at first sight rather spoils the fun, and no-one would watch a couple without major obstacles on their way to their eventual union. In fact there's more delight watching a couple being together forced by circumstance as Shakespeare knew: so Hero and Claudio are a boring couple in ''All's Well That Ends Well'', Beatrice and Benedick are the stars.
However some of the kisses or closenesses are so contrived that
there seems to be a sub-text:
love comes after one's in a relationship, not before it.
