Kissing on the First Date: Dating Do or Don't?

In 2012, it almost seems like an outdated question, but we're still curious: Do you kiss on the first date? A writer for Glamour recently blogged that no one has tried to kiss her since she moved to the Midwest. "In my dating days back in New York City, I literally never went on a date where the guy didn't at least try to stick his tongue down my throat," she writes.

But How About We doesn't think a first date kiss is a must. "I've always been of the belief that if it’s a blind date or an online date, you can take things a bit slower. It’s a little different than going on a date with someone you’ve already met -- you’re feeling each other out, and often it’s the second date that starts to feel more date-y," she writes.

"On the other hand, one of my guy friends once said to me, with utter conviction, that if he doesn’t kiss a girl on the first date it means he’s not interested. And when I think back on my own romantic history, I’ve never had a first date lead to a second date if there wasn’t kissing involved." We'd have to agree that in our best relationships, the kiss happened way early. How about you?

    If I like her, I'll walk her to the front door and I'll kiss her goodnight. If I'm not interested anymore, I'll probably say goodbye in the car.

    If we don't kiss right why do we want to go out again?

    I could depend, but I would advise against it....in fact in my opinion, it should be several dates before you would be kissing....there should be some mystery in a relationship, especially in the beginning...People do to much to soon in today's dating world, and it is a big mistake.

    Depends on the date and the people involved. A kiss can be just that, a kiss.
  • jackie 2012/05/22 01:37:56
    Rofl I dont. I want to get to know him first before my sexual hormones run wild.

    more than understood. last girl i had ever kissed on the first date we had known each other for 2 years or so. i feel it depends on the sort of history you have with the other.

    It depends on the kiss and my comfort level. On the face or lips is ok, but the hot and bothered grope and tongue thing, not likely.

    It would depend on how well the date went whether there are sparks or not. If not a polite thanks for going out and bye bye.

    it depends on the date chemistry at the time. If you try to kiss her on the cheek and she smacks with a big one go for it. If she slaps you with a hand stop.

    It just doesn't depends. That shouldn't even be an option in my opinion. People date for a reason. They date in order to search for that one man or woman. Not because the date went well on the first day doesn't mean he/she will be your soul mate for life. Scientists doesn't just take the first result of an experiment. You watch that person first, how does he/she treats you?, how does he/she treats you when he's/she's around friends?, Does he/she seem interested or is he/she pretending to be interesting in order to trick in bed? Does he/she even care about your feelings? There are guys and girls that are out there, that will trick you into satisfying their sexual fantasies, which is not love; they are typically using you. There is also that one guy or girl that has been dating in order to find the one they want to be with and they are serious about the relationship. Dating is not just dating. There is a lot of thinking that comes with this, especially when you are serious. You look for red flags and such. That is why guys ends up regretting being with certain girls because they never think about it and that is why girls end up being hurt, violated and even end up being in domestic violence relationships because they never look at who is standing in front of them.

    This reminds me of dating in the dark. All the man wanted to do was kiss. And he kissed every woman he talked to in the dark. It had nothing to do with being interested, he just wanted to get turned on by kissing.
  • Crimson jackie 2012/05/22 21:50:39
    that's gross :p.....I'm sorry.
  • jackie Crimson 2012/05/22 22:40:37
    That is the way it's like for some people. They need to be sexual in order to like you. Or they need to be sexual to show that they like you. It's sad, really.

    I guess it just depends on the situation. I usually don't because I don't want the guy to think I'm cheap. But if we really hit it off I might give him a quick kiss.
