Pomita Posted February 12, 2013 Posted February 12, 2013 Clearly these are two characters who haven't a clue how to navigate a romantic relationship, but have stumbled upon the right person which gives them the motivation to figure it out. Gradually over time they have gone from being very standoffish with people to finding their way into each other's hearts. It's not at all conventional, but that doesn't make it wrong. It absolutely is not a sign of dysfunction if a person is touched by this story. Most beautifully put, tmp. Some members on that thread are pretty judgmental - no shame in saying so. This view about Shamy not satisfying the 'required' parameters of romance (according to them) and hence not being 'true love' is just so rigid, especially on a board about a show which celebrates oddity and things and people outside the norm. I might just go over and reply, or not - I do it sometimes when I'm the mood for polemics. Mostly I drop in just to read some of the brilliant replies by Phanta, Spook, Sursonica and others. Back to Shamy.. I agree that the main impression I took away from the last episode was that Sheldon was giving more thought to the intricacies and future implications of their relationship than Amy was. (Which, I think, was amazing, for a person as generally clueless and emotionally unaware as Sheldon). Definitely Amy thought of moving in with him purely with the enthusiasm of a delighted child, just happy with the idea of living close to him - she wasn't thinking of intimacy in that context at all. She was so overjoyed at the prospect of moving her water-bed into Leonard's room! When she had her disappointed outburst later, it was because she had to let go suddenly of this pleasing new idea - there was no suggestion of 'why are you denying me intimacy even though I'm such a good girlfriend'. It sounded more like 'why are you denying me this little pleasure I want (being your flatmate) even though I'm such a good girlfriend'. About the spoiler.. Amy helping out Sheldon with the high-school kids? This sounds priceless! Perhaps another nerdy moment between them. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
