This is another true to life comic! My wife and I finished our first date just like this. Standing together near the entrance to the subway station staring at each other. I had no idea that it was odd to kiss in public in Japan. I just wanted her to know for sure that I was interested in her seriously. So, I took the chance and kissed her in front of all the people walking by! She seemed ok with it at the time so she really must have liked me.
