Drumroll: Today is National Kiss Your Mate Day!Jessica Tholmer

I don’t exactly know what else I could possibly say that the title of this piece does not already convey, but I will add in really quickly here that I don’t have a mate, so I will not be kissing anyone today.

BUT! Movies and television exist for a reason, so let’s just give it up for the best kisses-between-mates-ever.

Jim and Pam, The Office–their best kiss ever still. (BEFORE THEY WERE MATES.)

joshdonna

Josh and Donna, The West Wing–their first kiss ever! (Before they were mates.)

Noah and Allie, The Notebook–their reunion kiss. (BEFORE THEY WERE BACK TOGETHER.)

Jack and Rose, Titanic–”you’re so stupid, Rose” kiss. (DO WE CALL THEM MATES AT THIS POINT? CAUSE SHE STILL HAD A FIANCEE, NBD.)

ron

Ron and Hermione, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (part two, movie version)–”effin’ finally” kiss. (THEY WERE ALWAYS MATES, ALWAYS.)

randr

Ross and RachelFriends–”I don’t need your stupid ship” kiss. (SHE NEEDED HIS STUPID SHIP, NOT MATES YET STILL.)

So, happy National Kiss Your Mate Day, but really what I’m getting at here is that sometimes you kiss someone who isn’t really your mate yet, and that’s okay.

Kiss someone, or at least watch a good kiss on YouTube.

  1. Nothing matters except Jim/Pam and Josh/Donna. Nothing. (Btw Bradley Whitford was at nerd prom last night and I DON’T KNOW I JUST WISH JANEL MOLONEY WAS BECAUSE I COULD PRETEND *CRY*)

    • AMEN GIRL AMEN. Honestly, I think the Casino Night kiss is the best kiss ever, and I don’t mean the physicality of it, but I mean the moment. IT RULES.

      • Yes. Their S2 storyline was so well done and that kiss was the most beautiful climax to that. Sidenote: I really wanna make out with John Krasinski. Jim and Pam had a good makeout sesh in this week’s ep too. Life is good.

  2. I left Jess and Nick off on purpose, you guys! They frustrate me too much, and they certainly aren’t mates!

  3. Okay, I’m sorry, but the first kiss between Nick and Jess on New Girl has got to be on that list. Seriously. It’s the best on screen kiss since sliced bread (ah, sliced bread, a wonderful Macbeth).

  4. What about NICK & JESS from New Girl!??!?

    Hands down, best on-screen kiss!
