In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, we see Harry and Ginny kissing, proving they were in love and later they married. But in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, we see Harry trying to impress another girl in the hotel in the start of the movie. So were they not engaged in Half Blood Prince? There's also the whole angle of Ron getting jealous of Harry and Hermione during their trip in Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (even though he wasn't of a clear mind at that point). Was there any point in the movies where it was clarified that Harry and Ginny were an item before Deathly Hallows: Part 2 or was this just treated rather implicitly without even them realizing it themselves?

    In the book, he is infatuated with Cho Chang since Book 3, they go their separate ways in Book 5, and he starts to date Ginny by the end of Book 6, until their marriage after the end of Book 7.

    @KeyBrdBasher, When I saw and realized it's really not welcome by the community, why let it leave open then? So voted to close it.

    @Mistu4u: Its not that its "not welcome in the community". Rather, I'd say that the scope of the question doesn't seem very fruitful. Nevertheless, you got your answer I believe and on the upside you earned the respect of fellow community members like me.

Harry Potter's earlier love interest was Cho Chang. She was dating Cedric Diggory in Goblet of Fire and later dated Harry during Order of Phoenix. They also share a kiss before the Christmas break, in the room of requirement.

However, she is torn between the memory of Cedric and her emotions towards Harry and thus their relationship never stabilizes. Later in Half Blood Prince, Harry starts to see Ginny, for who he always had a soft corner in his heart. They share a kiss right after Gryffindor wins the Quidditch Cup.


There's one scene in Half Blood Prince where Ginny and Harry kiss in The Room of Requirements. They are there to hide Harry's book after he uses Sectumsempra on Malfoy and almost kills him. The movie doesn't expand on their relationship after that, but the kiss happened in a different way in the books and they dated after that and only breaking up when Harry decided to strike out on his own after Dumbledore's death.
