Some people think my “rule” of not kissing on a first date is a bit far-fetched, but hey, that’s my norm. I’m told that most women do much more than that on first dates, so no man is going to wait for a kiss – especially when he has options. I say, if I just meet a man, it’s safe to assume at the outset that he DOES have options – unless he’s outright unappealing. I would confirm that eventually, but that’s not a main concern when I first meet a man.
As far as kissing strangers, that doesn’t sit well with me. Call me a prude. I don’t care. And I’m especially not inclined to go someplace and get naked with him.
If two adults are having consensual sex, on a first, third, or tenth date — it’s all good, but I think everyone should do what suits their comfort level.
