First dates are a big deal, no matter how old you are! Whether you are a teenager just starting out dating, or an adult with more then a few old relationships behind her, the thrill and importance of that very first date with a new guy is always significant. You’ve probably heard the age-old piece of advice that you should never sleep with someone on the first date, but what about kissing? Well, personally, I believe that doing that is integral to the dynamic of the first date experience! Here is why you should kiss on a first date.
Feeling the urge to kiss on your first date is a good thing because it means that you have chemistry! The feeling of really connecting with someone and being both physically and emotionally attracted to them is rarer than the movies would have you think, so there is no shame in making the most of it with an early smooch!
2. Not Taboo
Back in your grandparents’ day kissing on a first date might have been super taboo, but in 2018 it is about as chaste as you are expected to be! In the grand scheme of things, kissing is low stakes, even though a really great smooch can feel even more intimate than going all the way sometimes!
3. Good Sign
More than anything else, it is a good sign that you are both into each other and are interested in seeing each other again and exploring where your connection might be going. You don’t walk around just wanting to kiss everyone you see in the street, so the fact that you want to kiss your date so early is nothing but a good sign.
Kissing him on the first date is one of the best tests to determine whether you want to see him again! If he is a terrible kisser, then you might find that afterwards you don’t feel the same height of chemistry that you did before. That sort of compatibility is really important, and testing the waters can save you a lot of time!
5. Because You Want to!
It’s 2018, for heaven’s sake, why do you need a reason or excuse to kiss a guy if you feel like it! Take the initiative, forget about old-fashioned social conventions, and get those lips puckered!
