Added DiffLines:

* LovingAShadow: It's made very clear in the movie and by WordOfGod that Tom is more fixated on an idealized version of Summer as his desired ManicPixieDreamGirl and doesn't see the actual flawed human being in front of him. Naturally, this blows up badly in his face when his inability to let it go leads to some painful heartbreak for him.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Deconstructs traditional "happily ever after" endings of most romantic comedies (which Tom grew up on), and more specifically, ''Film/GardenState''-style quirky indie romances.

* ComingOfAgeStory: The movie is in many ways a story of Tom growing from being a young adult who is in many ways an adolescent (working a job he has no passion for, being naive about how love and relationships work, and even his style of dress) to a (hopefully) more functioning and happier adult who isn't as focused on finding love.
