here is the thing:

Jacob kissed Nelly to show his love towards her.

in a conversation:

Nelly: Jacob kisses me to prove his love, Im so excited!

Katy: Wow, that's a great starting! Great job! Emotion: smile

my question is, why Nelly said kisses instead of kissed ? The action has been already happened right?

Nelly: Jacob kisses (?) me to prove his love. I'm so excited!

Katy: Wow, that's a great start! Great job!

In spite of Anon's valid explanation, 'kisses' (present) seems wrong here. Since the dialogue has other errors, this may be an error, too.

Hi,

1. He makes it very often, so his kissing is performed as a sort of a 'love ritual' hence the simple present.

2. It may be a narrative where Nelly uses the simple present to describe an event in so-called 'historic present'.
