No kiss on first date? Do not fret; this is not necessarily a bad thing. Yes, you may be a little disappointed that you did not have one of those Hollywood worthy smooches to end the evening, but that does not mean you will never get one.
Kissing on the first date can be risky, so by not getting that kiss, you avoided ruining the relationship by moving too fast. Though it is optional, a first date kiss can potentially do more harm than good. If you both go in for a kiss before you are confident you have feelings for each other, it can make things awkward between you. Whether it is feelings of regret or nervousness that follow a premature kiss, by saving the smooching for later dates, you can avoid both of these. So don’t be worried if you don’t get that first date kiss.
However, sometimes the reason you didn’t get a first date kiss is because you leaned in and that special someone declined. If this happens to you, do not be upset. Just because the person did not want to kiss you, it does not mean that they do not have feelings for you. In this case, they may have not been ready to move that far yet and want to wait until they get to know you better. This is not a bad thing.
If you wanted a first date kiss but didn’t get one because there was no good opportunity, then make sure you get one on your second date. If you have strong feelings for this person and are confident that they feel the same way about you, then a kiss is never a bad thing. Go ahead and ask them out again, and this time, go for it when the opportunity arises.
