vasu Posted April 8, 2013 Posted April 8, 2013 vasu, I agree the show has not been overt about showing any instance where Amy would not take the leap, but Amy is just as inexperienced as Sheldon. They have made that fairly evident. The writers have mentioned several times during fan events and interviews that both Sheldon and Amy are like a middle-school adolescent in that both have child-like views on relationships and sex. I truly believe that the writers are going to pull out some of Amy's "child-like" view about it all when the tables are turned a bit. Once Sheldon finally decides to take the leap and moves forward and perhaps gets a bit more aggressive in allowing his testosterone to take over (just like a teen boy would), she might start pulling back. That is where we are going to get glimpses of her not being ready. I think right now, she is safe in thinking about such matters. She romanticizes them, sees her friends having healthy sex lives and she knows that Sheldon is the only man she wants. But she also does not have a boyfriend touching her yet, or getting intimate with her in any way. He hasn't even kissed her in a deep fashion. So she doesn't understand yet that once he does start becoming intimate with her, what that might mean to her personally. It is all fantasy in her head at the moment. But once the touching starts, that could change. The reality of the situation will kick in and she may begin to panic. So I think we will see her start to "freak out" slightly when Sheldon finally abandons fear to the winds and allows hormones to take over. She may slow him down. I also believe that the writers will use this as another way to slow their relationship from moving forward too fast. It helps buy them more time before they actually have them consummate their relationship. I don't follow much of what the writers says at interviews or events...I have little knowledge about those things... But from what I have seen in the show till now ......Amy clearly appears to be ready to be in a full blown relationship.... and I don't even see a little bit of ambiguity regarding this.... And I don't know how believable it would be if the writers go on the route you are proposing....cause I think they have moved Amy too far to make her backing down look realistic...
