In Jake's defense, he is not the first lead to give as someone called it "grammar school kisses." Last season Jillian excused away the shut - mouthed kisses as inconsequential ("They weren't real kisses"), and indicated that only the guys in the HT dates on got the real or mature type kisses.Originally Posted by MsDll;3795012;
Byron was told to kiss more, so he did - they all got pecks. He said he only really kissed the F4. There was another one who stated basically the same thing -the mature kisses were held in reserve for the last, more serious choices.
Now if we get to HTS, and Jake is still giving everyone the same awkward kisses, then I think we can maybe assume he is socially stunted in the kissing department.
