He soon starts liking Sam romantically although he is aware of his inadequacy at being a suitable boyfriend for Sam. He is introduced to a group of upperclassmen students by Patrick and Sam. The world of mixed tapes, parties, first dates and late night drives are all very unfamiliar to Charlie but he soon begins to find his own place in this new territory. His sensitivity likens him to this more mature group of friends who are misfits in their own rights. Sam and Patrick offer Charlie a chance to actually be a part of the real world.
