Love is not in the destination for the destination can only lead to two things death or the love between two people dispersing leading to a break up.

An opportunity appears when Tom finds out the entire office is going to a karaoke bar the next evening.

Tom arrives at the bar where he sees Summer; she seems glad to see him. Tom, Summer, and Tom’s best friend sit and talk about relationships and love. Tom and Summer engage in an argument debating whether or not love is real, with Summer saying it’s not and Tom saying, “It’s love; it’s not Santa Claus.” You can pretty much infer Summer would agree with our quote from class, which said, It is with true love as it is with ghosts; everyone talks of it, but few have seen it. Nonetheless, the two agree to disagree. Later that night, Summer discovers out that Tom likes her due to Tom’s best friend. The next day, Summer makes out with Tom in the copy room and walks away like nothing happened, leaving Tom befuddled.

Over time Tom and Summer end up spending more time together and becomes closer to each other. Summer shares her most intimate thoughts and stories with Tom and Tom shares his passions and failures with Summer. Tom and Summer share occasional kisses with one another.

The next morning like most men who have sexual relations with their crush he feels on top of the world and unstoppable. Tom notices that he is fully in love with Summer.
