The Nurse makes mistakes which not only confuse Juliet, but also make her lose trust. In the beginning of the play, she supports Juliet through her actions and behaviour; she helps deliver messages to Romeo in secrecy and even encourages them both to get married. However, when Juliet needs the Nurse’s support the most, she quickly abandons Juliet. She immediately switches from favouring Romeo to taking Paris’ side when asked her opinion. As Juliet is making decisions about Romeo, Nurse states, “Romeo is banish’d; and all the world to nothing, / that he dares ne’er come back to challenge you.” (3.5.214-215).
Romeo noticed that the list had Rosaline on it, so he dared to go to the feast to meet with her. Benvolio again suggests to Romeo that he should forget Rosaline, he again refuses. Scene 3 Act 1:Lady Capulet talks to Juliet about marriage then tells her about Paris’ proposal. When lady Capulet tells Juliet that Paris will be at the feast, Juliet doesn’t act too excited. Nurse responds for Juliet with something that Lady Capulet wanted to hear.
He also describes her lips as two blushing pilgrims, ready to make things better with kiss which is also a sign of hastiness. Therefore, Romeo is taking things too fast as he also tends to kiss her at that feast and later ask her to take her virginity away. Romeo and Juliet’s infatuation is based on hastiness as they both make decisions without knowing whether if the decisions made are right
(Shakespeare 1.4.1016).’" However Juliet hesitates towards Romeo’s gestures because she doesn’t know who Romeo is. Then, Romeo continues with his romantic statements and the two kiss. Although Romeo is romantic, he is also very impulsive. After meeting Juliet Romeo was in love after just breaking up with Rosaline. When Romeo talks to Friar Laurence he explains “‘Then plainly know my heart’s dear love is set On the fair daughter of rich Capulet’ As mine on hers, so hers is set on mine, And all combined, save what thou must combine By holy marriage.
(Act 1, Scene 5) and Juliet realizes their love is special. Shakespeare encourages his audience to consider the qualities people need to fall in love and to remain in love. Shakespeare shows that unrequited love can make people feel sad and unhappy. Romeo falls in love with Rosaline and Paris falls in love with Juliet. Romeo sees Rosaline as the earth and sky, calling her fair, wise, and as well as beautiful.
The most distinct similarity between Romeo and Juliet is their undying love for one another. Both Romeo and Juliet have an intense love for each other that never weakens. Romeo and Juliet experience love at first sight when they meet each other at the Capulet’s party. Romeo expresses his immediate physical attraction towards Juliet when he remarks, “This holy shrine … my lips, two blushing, pilgrims, ready stand to smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss” ( I.iv.93-95 ). Juliet excitedly replies “Good pilgrim you do wrong your hand too much, which mannerly devotion shows in this for saints have hands that pilgrims hands do touch…[and has] holy palmers kiss” (I.iv.97-100).

These together provide suspense and a deeper understanding of the plot as a whole. Act I incorporates foreshadowing early on to suggest that the love of Romeo and Juliet will have terrible consequences. Shakespeare's use of symbolism and tone in this act further suggest that Romeo and Juliet were never supposed to fall in love. Romeo wasn’t even supposed to be at the Capulet’s masquerade ball. Romeo first sees that “this night's revels” (I.iv.109), the night he meets Juliet, will “expire the term/ of a despised life” (I.iv.110), yet he still goes to the party with those risks.
However, Romeo instead meets and falls in love with Juliet. After the ball, in what is now called the "balcony scene", Romeo sneaks into the Capulet courtyard and overhears Juliet on her balcony vowing her love to him in spite of her family's hatred of the Montagues. Romeo makes himself known to her and they agree to be married. With the help of Friar Laurence, who hopes to reconcile the two families through their children's union, they are married secretly the next day. Juliet's cousin Tybalt, offended that Romeo had sneaked into the Capulet ball, challenges him to a duel.
