When is it okay to kiss on the first date?
Kissing on a first date isn’t bad. But it all depends on just how comfortable you are with the idea. Here are a few circumstances when a first kiss is completely acceptable.
#1 The s*xual chemistry is intense. You can’t wait to make out with this person. And your date is having a hard time keeping their hands off you too!
#2 Mutual attraction. Both of you have been attracted to each other for a while before getting together on the date.
#3 You like your date. You’re on the date, and at some point during the date, you realize you actually like this person.
#4 The perfect date. It’s a real date that’s lasted long into the night, and both of you have been really touchy feely the whole while.
#5 I’m not seeing you again! You’re on a date with a gorgeous person. You like them, but you just don’t feel the chemistry. You think the person is nice, but there’s nothing in common and you don’t intend on dating them again. You might as well just kiss the person and get the what-if over with!
When is it acceptable to not kiss on the first date?
While a kiss on the first date is perfectly acceptable, there are a few instances when it can just feel awkward and scripted. Here are a few reasons why you could skip the kiss on the date.
#1 It’s only been a few hours. You’re still getting to know your date, and you really don’t like kissing strangers.
#2 You don’t think you’ll date them. You’re not sure you want to date this person again, and you really have no interest in kissing someone you don’t find fascinating.
#3 Scripted kiss. There’s just too much pressure on that kiss at the end of the date. It’s killing the mood and you can’t concentrate on your date because you’re constantly thinking of that kiss. You may find it easier to just avoid kissing on the first date so you can enjoy the date instead of feeling stressed out.
#4 Your date is warm, but not ready. Your date seems to be enjoying your company and they seem to like you. But they’re not showing any real signs that they want to pucker up at some point at the end of the date.
#5 You just don’t feel like it. This could happen at times. You like your date and really want to see them again, but you don’t feel like kissing them. You probably want that first kiss to feel special and the moment just doesn’t seem right.
