These days you might think that everyone kisses at the end of a great first date. But what does it mean if you don’t?
Dear Claire, I’ve been out of the dating world for a while (was married for 6 years) and now I’m having to figure all that out again. I just got back from a great first date with a new man and he didn’t kiss me at the end. Does this mean he’s not interested? But we had an awesome time!! – Chloe
Just because you didn’t kiss on the first date does NOT mean he’s giving you the kiss-off. If the date really was great, like you said, then look for other things that may be figuring in…
1. He may be shy.
2. He may be very conservative (and respectful).
3. He’s just too nervous (or possibly inexperienced) to go for it.
Did you get the feeling that any of those factors were are at play during your date?
Or did he make lots of eye contact, get engaged with what the two of you were saying and doing together, and seem to really enjoy himself?
If so, then the lack of a kiss shouldn’t throw you off. He’s warming up to it, and when he does, you’re likely to find that a man with a slow hand is also really, really, really desirable in just so many ways. 🙂
Take the poll: What do YOU think?
Actually, I have a poll AND a question… If you had an awesome date with a guy and he didn’t kiss you, would you go out with him again? Leave me a comment and let me know!
