Recently, Jane Wonder of the One Date Wonder dating blog had an awkward situation: she was dating a guy who hadn't kissed her, until the 6th date. She didn't know: What do you do? What does it mean?
So, I'm curious, guys and girls, when do YOU think it's the perfect time for the first kiss??? And how do you judge??
Personally, I'm a total first kiss phobic. I put it off as long as possible, until like Jane says, then it's just plain awkward because you've made too big a deal about it.
My poor husband...how long did he wait? 4, 5 dates...I can't remember. Hmmm...I told him my discomfort with first kisses so he patiently waited for me to make the first move.
He knew it was time when we were on his couch and I bent over to take off my glasses- no point in letting those get in the way if you've waited that long!!
My friend and dating expert colleague, Mary Jo Fay, met a guy who had a perfect solution to this problem.
His idea was to end the first date by asking: Would you like a handshake, a hug, or a kiss?
This totally avoids the whole awkward end of first date thing AND it lets everyone proceed at their own pace without having to guess and make it all weird and uncomfortable.
Plus, then it gives the guy a real big hint about whether this girl may be interested in going out on another date. So he can ask with more confidence.
Brilliant! I wish every guy knew this!
So, when's the perfect time for that first kiss? And how do you know?
