In the world of dating, it can seem as though there is a never-ending list of rules. And while you certainly want to handle yourself in a polite, courteous way, it’s still important to be able to relax, have fun, and get to know someone! Have you been speaking with someone, and agreed to go on a first date together? If so, what should you do about the first kiss? Is it good or bad to kiss on the first date?
Before you begin dating, you will want to determine what you are comfortable with and what your personal preferences are when it comes to being physical with someone you are getting to know. This will help you to find someone that you will be compatible with. You simply can’t find your perfect match if you don’t know what you want out of a relationship! Are you okay with the prospect of a kiss on the first date? Then, great! If not, this is something you will want to discuss before the date. In fact, before you get too serious with someone it’s a good idea to discuss how you feel about boundaries and a physical relationship. That way, everyone can feel comfortable with each other while dating and there won’t have to be unnecessary stress in regards to when a first move should be made.
The only way it could be considered bad for two people to kiss on the first date is if it crossed a boundary for someone and upset them. If you made a move to kiss someone knowing that they weren’t comfortable being physical too soon, then yes, you could say that that wasn’t the best way to handle the situation. But if kissing on the first date is something that both you and the person that you are going on the date with are comfortable doing, then there is no reason to stress.
Dating is something that you should enjoy, and while there will certainly be ups and downs, when you find someone that you are compatible with you will click and everything will work out in its time. Just keep in mind that honesty is the best policy. Having a discussion early on about how you feel in regards to physical contact will help you to find someone with similar views, remove unnecessary stress about when to kiss the other person, and help you gain the other person’s respect.
