A Do or a Don't: Kissing on a First Date

A Do or a Don't: Kissing on a First Date

Call me easy, but I think kissing on a first date is important — you can tell if you have any chemistry and get a feel for your partner's level of passion. With that said, I have friends who completely disagree with me; they feel a kiss should be saved for someone you really like, not shared with someone you went on a mediocre date with. So where do you stand? Is kissing on a first date a do or a don't in your eyes?

I used to do both, if I really liked him then I wouldnt wait to kiss, but if I was on the fence about how I felt then I would hold off. Which basically meant I didnt really like the guy anyways. Heehehe! I think if you dont kiss by the 2nd date at least then you're pretty weird, and I think most guys would agree and prob not ask you out again!

make your mind up before you go on that date what you will and won't do. rules aren't bad if they keep you from doing something you don't want to. but there's nothing wrong with one of your rules being that you will kiss if it's all going really right

It depends on the person and if the chemistry is present. I didn't kiss my first boyfriend until our 3rd date and that was only because he took my and planted it on me. Don't get me wrong, I wanted to kiss him from our first date, I was just to scared, lol. :P

The last relationship I was in, we did kiss on the first date and it was horrible! But we were in my car (I didn't want him walking home late at night, so I offered to drive him) and I had my seatbelt on, and my car is a standard so there were arm rests and a stick shift in the way! It was really uncomfortable and not a good kiss at all!! I really wish we'd waited to kiss until the second date.

Depends on the date. If you are really feeling him then why not. If it is a mediocre date then a kiss could make it better or you can wait til another date

I think I ended up waiting a month or so before my boyfriend and I first kissed. Not that I didn't want to before that, but we were both shy, haha. Thank goodness he's a great kisser. So it depends.

If I don't want to kiss them, then the chemistry is obviously not there.

I say definitely yes (it's one of the greatest things about dating - the possibility of an incredible kiss at the end of the night), but there are certain circumstances when you just gotta wait and see - b/c if the guy was insensitive, rude or a jerk to me or others he's definitely not getting a kiss from me!!!!!!!!

It really depends on the person & how comfortable you are.

I'm with the chemistry crowd too. If I'm feeling him then I would let it happen. I don't believe in self-deprivation. :p

yep i'm with the if there is chemistry than go for it crowd! if the attraction is there- a little kiss isn't going to hurt anything! however i wouldn't kiss the guy if i wasn't feeling it.

I'm in the Jude C crowd here. I waited until the 3rd date to kiss my now BF, but only because it was the first time I wanted to kiss him :)

i don't kiss on the first date. i don't knock anyone else for doing it though. i just don't like giving anything away. even if the date was great, i refrain from smoochin'. for me, chemistry is in the conversation. if you can't talk, then it won't work. i dunno, i'm just not quick to put my mouth on a stranger's mouth. you know, that's the dirtiest part of the human body.
