Kissing on the First Date
There are unwritten “dating rules” spelling about just about everything, including whether or not one should kiss on the first date. These can be confusing and contradictory at times. Things like yes you should kiss on the first date to show interest or no never kiss on the first date because they will think you are not serious can leave your head spinning.
Honestly, it is all a bit complicated and silly because dating has no hard and fast rules. Though dates should always be respectful and consensual, the rest is up to personal feelings, beliefs, and instincts. If you want to kiss on the first date and your date is into it, then go ahead. If you are not sure they want to, ask.
Below are a few reasons people gave for their decision to kiss or not to kiss:
- If the date is good and the vibe is good, go for it and kiss away.
- A kiss can tell you lots about a person, so why not try one to see if there should be a second date.
- Kissing on the first date is a norm unless the date was terrible.
- Kissing on the first date is critical to determine chemistry.
- A hug may be a better option.
- Kissing is intimate, so waiting until I really know someone is better.
- No need to overthink, just do what feels right.
- Waiting makes it better and much more desired.
- Waiting until it is love is better for kissing.
The consensus is in, o what feels right in the moment with that person, if they consent. It really is that easy.
