Alex and Maggie are giving me all the “adult” relationship I need from this show, leaving Kara and Mon-El to deliver the “teen” vibes I still enjoy.
Maybe we’ll find out he’s not the guy for her down the line — they’re being compared to Romeo and Juliet, and we all know how well things turned out for those two — but for now, I’m enjoying my visit to, as Kevin Smith puts it, “Charm City.” VLADA I think it’s also important to note that Kara brings out a better side of Mon-El. Kara and James’ would-be relationship always felt somewhat stagnant to me — once they get together, what’s the conflict? And if Kara and Mon-El aren’t meant to be, then at least we’ll (hopefully) get a really great, emotional storyline out of their Romeo and Juliet-esque romance.
If we’re speaking botanically, I’d say their romantic relationship has been planted and is being watered — but we’re all getting ahead of ourselves. VLADA As a rom-com sucker, I find Kara and Mon-El’s scenes absolutely delightful.
But from the minute Mon-El was introduced, it was so obvious where the writers were heading with these two that I understand why some viewers have been put off by the romance, especially in light of Kara and James’ abrupt end. Mon-El’s relative boyishness draws out her lighter side, sure, but it steers them more in the direction of a “teen” romance.
A longer span of time before he’s reaching for the Viagra.
And then you learn that the same year you graduated college, he was wrapping up his freshman year—of high school.Coming off of Monday’s midseason premiere, in which Mon-El revealed his wish to become a hero like his Kryptonian BFF, TVLine’s Matt Webb Mitovich, Andy Swift and Vlada Gelman debated the pairing’s pros and cons.MATT I think the problem is that phrase “budding,” which I’ll admit to using myself on occasion.Likewise, if you hide yourself under too many layers and unflattering shapes, he’ll be equally put off. You won’t notice it, but within 45 seconds of sitting he’ll have checked the state of your dress, hair, make-up and yes…even your chipped nails.If these things aren’t in tip-top condition then forget about a whirlwind romance, as Virgo men cannot comprehend untidiness in a person.Add the fact that younger guys have more stamina, and you just may have a match made in orgasm heaven.“A younger man has more energy and is more willing to try things,” says Lindsay Slosberg, dating expert for the app Let’s Date.
