Who is peeta dating
It's also got one of the best love triangles in YA fiction as a secondary plot, where the heroine is torn between the familiar best friend who has helped her support her family over the years and the boy with the bread, who initially provided food for her family and gave her hope.
The young men are polar opposites and although Katniss Everdeen eventually does choose Peeta Mellark over Gale Hawthorne, some fans argue that she should have chosen Gale, who knew her better and for longer.
Josh Hutcherson and his longtime girlfriend Claudia Traisac share a cute moment together while grabbing their afternoon pick-me-up at Alfred's Coffee on Thursday (April 5) in Los Angeles.
Plutarch Heavensbee knows that the people wouldn't follow Gale into battle as ardently as they would a lovesick 16-year-old girl who not only survived the Hunger Games but sacrificed herself to save her little sister as well as her boyfriend. While Peeta fell for the girl who sang like a bird on the first day of school, he never got to know her like her best friend Gale did.
They both needed to support their families with their hunting and trapping skills and they relied upon one another to bring in enough game and foraged plants to provide for their houses.
Even so, Gale obviously chose to stick with Katniss out of love, given that he'd already been trapping before she came along and first saw her as competition for food rather than an ally.
Interestingly, Katniss is taller than Peeta only in the film versions of novels—so it’s not that the film is simply staying faithful to the source material.
In fact, the books contain subtle text clues that Peeta is the taller of the two.
