I am frequently asked by clients planning for their first dates whether they should kiss on first date and also which kind of kissing is appropriate and which is not.
Obviously, if you have already kissed when you met at a party or club or bar then it makes sense to continue with the tradition.
If you are meeting the date for the first time apply caution. A friendly kiss on the cheek shows respect and warmth. Tread very carefully when kissing a first date on the lips. You really need to be sure that this intimate gesture will be appreciated; otherwise it could seriously backfire. Your setting for the kiss also plays a part. We feel more comfortable kissing on a first date in darker surroundings where there is less risk of being spotted. The best things in life are often worth waiting for and so much better when we get them – just like a first kiss after a couple of dates!
I remember the second date with my now husband, we felt very comfortable together and were enjoying dancing together in a dimly-lit bar. Halfway through the night, he turned to me and said, “I want to kiss you.” The timing was perfect, the setting discreet and that was one of the best kisses of my life!
