I went on a date today and this is my first boyfriend. He was gonna kiss me and I backed away, three times. I gave him "a peck" on the cheek and it wasn't even that. It's not that I don't want to kiss him it's just I'm nervous considering the fact it is my first kiss. I feel like I'll mess up and I don't know what to do. I feel really crappy and awkward and mad at myself and ugh I don't know. Some advice please?

Alright, because you wanted a guys opinion:
First thought is that this guy isn't too bright. If the first kiss doesn't work cause she isn't interested you don't go storming the trenches 2 more times hoping to get lucky unless she says something different or changes something. Second, I think you played it pretty smart. If you're not comfortable kissing yet (you don't have to just because its a date), don't do it. If the guys going for it and you don't want it to get awkward after for not kissing him back, if you're comfortable with it you should just turn your head and take it on the cheek. (Would work on an older guy just be aware that he's inexperienced and may not pick up on the cues). Lastly, if this was a first date as it sounds, unless there's a large backstory we're missing he probably doesn't love you either. My guess, he was using it as a hail mary play (again read young and inexperienced) hoping he could use it to kiss you. My best advice, your right all along, it does mean something and don't commit to it until you're ready.
Sorry for the novel, Cheers!1
