The first kiss can be the most awkward part of a date. Many men have faced "the first kiss" with over analysis, uncertainty and fear of rejection. Once there is a clear understanding of the secrets to kissing, knowing "when" to go in for the first kiss will be less of a gamble. If determining the right time for a first kiss is a challenge, the following tips may help to determine the likelihood for affection.
The response that she gives to casual touching can speak volumes about her readiness to move forward. The casual touch of her hand at dinner or touch the small of her back when guiding her through the doorway or to the table provides plenty of clues. If she pulls away or give any slight negative reaction, then slow it down a bit and take some more time. If she smiles, prolong the casual contact. This will be a comfortable next step toward sealing the kiss.
A sure way to learn about how a woman feels is to assess her hug response. When greeting or departing, keep the embrace short and key in for nonverbal feedback. If she lingers a bit or move closer to his body, he might be able to get the first kiss right then. If she seems a little turned off, then there is more to be done to loosen her up and head towards romance.
If a woman is interested, her eagerness will show. It usually appears in those "in-between" times. During these times, she will reveal her level of interest. It usually will be between dinner and a movie or during a walk to the car that she has the best opportunity to reveal her feelings towards the date and him.
A completely personal preference for women is whether they expect to be asked for permission to be kissed. To be safe, a man should ask if he is not sure. However, this will either come off as being respectful or wimpy. Keep in mind that this is simply a display of affection. It is just a kiss. The sexiest thing about a kiss is being spontaneous.
Women notice and welcome the romance and timing of the first kiss. She loves it when it is a positive experience. When the "moment" happens spontaneous, it is usually memorable.
The key to determining the right time for "the first kiss" is to pay attention to a woman's hints. The timing and strategy is not an exact science. Just look for clues and when it finally happens, relax and enjoy it.
