I did it when I started High School and when I started Sixth Form [last two years of American High School here in Britain]. For the first one, I was 11 years old - and had to build a crude shelter with my team out of bin bags and sticks. For the next one, when I was 16, my school and its brother school were put into groups of five. Throughout the day, we took part in various bonding activities.

The reason why we don't see the type of reaction Ron has in Kim is solely because she is a more calm and a less extreme person. Kim has shown reactions of deep romanticism such as the lines "isn't that romantic" and among others, and these require the person to be pertty open, and there are frequent phrases from her but they are just less extreme concerning the description, no need for them to be extreme. Ron on the other hand pretty much says what he has in mind and what he wants since he doesn't care how open he is(nor doesn't he realize how open and/or social smart he should be during a talk, a typical case of lack of experience). Kim's not a closed person, since calm or controlled doesn't mean that. In fact, Ron's the more closed person in many aspects.
And actually Kim is both a person of words and action, where as during the action scennes Ron is almost just action and little talking. Kim normally talks during the fights and before then, Ron just gets strait to the point, for instance in Exchange, The Fearless Ferret, Monkey First Strikes, StD, practically almost every fight.
I hear what you are saying but like I said before, what Kim says can be looked at with deeper meaning or can be just regular gf/bf chat. Like the "isn't that romantic" line. You could look at it from 2 views.
One view is that she thought it was romantic that Ron had come to fight for her rescue. He knew that he couldn't win against Shego, yet he still took on a losing battle. That is love that he has for her that is on display.
The other way is that she was just being the classic girl getting resuced by her boyfriend and getting caught up in the moment. However this case can happen without deep romanticism, as it can just be a guy doing what he should if his girlfriend is in trouble.
Now I do believe that Kim has some deep romantic feelings for Ron. I had my doubts by after watching OMI and her saying "isnt that romantic" I have switched over to yes. Its just that when she does say something, it is underscored by the stuff that Ron says.
When you say that Ron is more extreme, that was my point in my post in the "Does Kim even love Ron" thread. I feel that with the way that Ron act's and the things that he says, he is more emotionally attached to Kim the vice versea. Quotes like "I couldn't risk losing you, and the I want you to be safe." That shows just how much he cares. Really all Kim has done was be a good girlfriend, cant fault her there, but I just wish that she would show THAT type of emotion.

Well one way that shows she really loves Ron.She even said to Ron at the Beuno Nacho part."I like you dont I."When the odds are slim to none.Shes willing love him eventhough the odds are against them.Cant ask for much more than that for proof
That doesnt equate love to me. Thats looking far into a simple statement. ITs just like in the Cupid Effect, when Ron tell's Wade, "Who is dating Kim Possible?" There is not a ounce of "I love Kim Possible" in that statement. Sure you could look into it and say that but its a reach.
I'll give you my full review later. I loved the episode, Only thing I didn't like, was those henchmen beating Kim. Kim Possible is not suppose to lose to mere henchmen.
Jake Long does not lose to misc Huntsclan soulders, Aang does not lose to misc. Fire Nation soulders. I don't care how much they have improved with their motivation, Kim looks bad losing to them cleanly.
Kim didn't really lose to the misc henchmen. When the atmofreezer was stolen, she held her own. Then when she was in Hank's Cupcake factory, it was Wade's paralyzer that caused her to lose, not the co-ordinated henchmen.

xellos16, Kim loves ron. You can tell Kim cares about Ron more then anybody ever has in her life besides her inner family. After they get married Ron will be the one she cares about most. I agree with Comrade_Chin. Kim says just as many sweet and romantic things to Ron they are just not at the extreme ron says it. It's safe to say they love each other the same.
Also Kim was never emotionally attached to Eric. I don't know where you get that. They went on one date and to the Prom and the only reason she ever did that is because Kim put in her mind that Ron would never want her for more then a friend. I thought that was clear by Kim's reaction at the locker scene.
The kiss in so the drama is all you need to see to know Kim loves Ron. Look at that kiss. ;D

Okay. In the words of Allison Krause and the Union Station. "The smile on your face lets me know that you need me. There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me. The touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall. You say it best when you say nothing at all."

Another thing i liked was the Kim and Mr. Stoppable interaction. Basically how Mr. Stoppable said "Taking into account Kims Extrordinary Talents" or something to that effect. He knows Ron found himself a keeper.
