We go "oh, wow" (smile, blush, something we can't help) not "what the heck was that? Okay...." They set Hit Girl up, where was Dave at all reciprocating it? If they wanted that? He would have at least smiled rather than acting like kissing cousins and awkwardly taken aback as if she was his cousin. Basically where is the proof on Dave's end rather than speculation?

Saying Dave 'might' develop feelings later despite going "what the heck? Okay..." is speculation not based on anything in the film.

As to why? The whole film was about Hit Girl's developing femininity and being able to take charge of her life as a girl rather than following the girls. Due to screen time and everything like that, from a structural stand-point it is fairly obvious why things happened and why she acts the way she does. However, on this same hand, where was Dave's reciprocation in a sexual manner? This isn't a hard thing to write or portray - a smile or a blush, not a confused scrunched face. Even if those feelings were there but not unearthed yet, there would have been some notion of that - not the look of somebody's who just been violated. A random girl? Cool! A cousin? Eww. Not that difficult to portray - they chose the scrunched face.
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
It's called screenwriting and subtext. He doesn't like her in that way... yet. He will if there's a 3rd film. That's the subtext this movie implies. She saw him change and became attracted. If there's a 3rd film, he'll see her get older and become a woman and become attracted. They are the only two people who can fully understand each other. This movie makes that clear. And you're acting as if he was grossed out by the kiss. That's simply not true. He was surprised. That's all. Attraction changed according to physical aspects and emotions. Later on, when she's older, assuming he sees her again, it's very likely he'll be attracted to her. Aside from that, what natural progression is there? They've already hammered it to us that NB and Katie can't fully relate to him. They've already hammered it to us that 99.9% of guys can't relate to or even come close to understanding hit-girl. Either they won't end up with anyone, or they'll both die, or they'll be with each other. There's also a small outside chance that Hit-girl and Todd will end up together given him saying he was going to save himself for her in the first movie. What other possibility is there? Dave won't just be with some random girl who is perfectly okay with him being Kick-ass, and Hit-girl won't just be with some random guy who is perfectly okay with her being hit-girl. Ask yourself what's more likely if a third film gets made- A- Hit-girl's crush on Dave and her first kiss being with him being completely ignored and swept under the rug and her dating random guys. B- She already likes him, so he'll eventually like her. Basic history of screenwriting tells us it'll be B.
