I had a great date and his friends were awesome but at the end he walked me home, we were alone and when we were saying goodbye I moved closer to him so he would had the opportunity to kiss me if he wanted but... He just hugged me and said goodbye. He wants to see me again but I was a little disappointed.
It's not a bad sign at all , at least he respects you & your boundaries. Two main points here , 1st is that men are always demonized by " society " as potential rapists & sex crazed morons , male sexuality is viewed with disgust , hence women often use adjectives such as " rapey, creepy " & worse to describe men. 2nd , men cannot read any typically subtle " Go Ahead " signals , unless trained to do so , or have lots of experience with women. I would not even make one small touch on a first date... if I was dating.
It's not a bad sign at all. He was probably trying to be respectful. Everyone is different and for some girls it might be too much too fast if a guy tries to kiss them after the first date. So he was probably trying to be respectful towards you.
I would flirt with him a little. Tell him you were disappointed and that you were looking forward to the kiss. He will then make sure he kisses you on the second date :)
My boyfriend waited 7 dates before he kissed me. But it was super special when it did happen :)
Some girls expect a kiss on a first date and some girls get offended if a guy tries to kiss her on the first date. A guy never knows how to handle that and some guys can't ready your subtle hints very well. Give him another chance.
No, it's not a bad sign. I know you are disappointed but then it's not advisable to kiss on the first date, maybe he didn't understand your signs, or it's possible he understood but didn't do it, because he didn't want to seem desperate or make you uncomfortable. He might have thought you are trying to test him and so he wanted to pass the test, he decided to play it safe..
not necessarily a bad sign. I had a general rule when dating that i didn't kiss on the first date. I didn't want my mind to be clouded by the romantic intimacy i wanted to remain clear headed about my feelings in a non-physical way.
but it definitely didn't mean i didn't like the girl
And this is date # ? If it's a first date then it's completely understandable that he didn't move in for a kiss. If it were the second date it would be a cause for wonder why there wasn't at least a peck , maybe not a drawn out kiss. But the third date he has no excuse to not give you a kiss
Even kissing is important to some people, so much that even after a first date they don't kiss because they don't know you well enough yet. They only want to kiss when they feel they romantically like you enough.
Don't be disappointed, it probably means he takes women and relationships in general seriously.
1) why didn't you kiss him? that is an awesome moment when she takes the initiative. 2) was is a first date? this thing about having dates with friends I just don't get. But I guess that is how dates go with you kids. that makes a difference. Since I was forced into dating again by an unwanted divorce, I have gone out with 13 women. I have never kissed one of them on the 1st date. A few not until the 3rd. It is awkward and the guy has the burden of not looking like he is just after sex.
I always tell the girl if I had a nice time and i'll mention doing something with her again. I've only kissed a girl once, so I'm not going to ruin my impression with a shitty kiss. Sometimes I wonder though cause one time I had a girl call me the next morning bright and early 7am while I was still sleeping and then she completely blocked my number and blocked me on the dating site. I guess she was mad I didn't answer the phone.
It doesn't mean anything except that he's inexperienced and he's too nervous and self-conscious to read your obvious body language. Basically he hasn't been dating enough to read the signs and know what you want. I was the same at 18. If you like him and don't mind training him a bit then just kiss him yourself.
Not always. Much of the time guys can be very hesitant to kiss a girl at the end of the date. Myself included. Because if we move in for the kiss at the end of a date and she refuses, it could result in a very awkward moment that would destroy everything we worked so hard for. He hugged you, so that's a good sign. So it sounds to me like he just wasn't sure whether or not to kiss you. You never know, maybe he'll be ready to kiss you next time.
I wouldn't exactly say it's a bad sign. He may not have realized you wanted to kiss him. I probably wouldn't know myself, unless I was paying enough attention to her body/facial language. It doesn't mean he isn't interested in you. He just isn't quite quick enough in this department.
I don't know, from a guys standpoint it's all about if it feels right or not and the girl's body language. The girl has to be going in for the kiss as well. I've had times where I'd try kissing or actually do it and the girl would think I'm being overly physical and get the impression that all I wanted is sex. It's different for everyone though. Not a black and white thing. Sometimes it'll be a simple kiss and sometimes it'll be making out.
He could either be shy, or holding out to make it special. Girls are super easy these days, especially with hot/cute guys. some of us like to wait so it actually means something and really gets us off.
It depends on the rest of the date. If it all went well, and he didn't try, then you can have a second date. Some guys still believe in rules when it comes to dating like waiting until some dates to start kissing, I don't know why.
Duh, not necessarily. It could be that he wasn't sure of your interest, or is hesitant about initiating kissing for some other reason.
I'd give it one more date. You could kiss him and see how he responds. Or you could wait and see how he plays it, and if he doesn't kiss you, ask why. It doesn't have to be a big dramatic thing. You could simply say;
"Hey, I've had a nice time with you, but you haven't kissed me and I'm not sure what that means. I'm old-fashioned and I like the guy to initiate the first kiss." If he's not feeling attracted to you, he should let you know and you can move on; if there's some other reason, you'll learn something about him.
It's not a bad sign at all... it means he is respectful and a gentleman because he's not assuming first date = first kiss. My first date with an incredible guy didn't end with a kiss and later we both laughed about how each of us had wanted to kiss each other but both of us didn't. And besides you say he wants to see you again... that's a great sign that round two will end the way you were hoping the first would have.
Just be patient. The guy I'm currently dating (9 months strong) didn't kiss me for our first 3 dates. Our 4th date was a New Years Eve party at my house and I outright told him he could come if I get a kiss at midnight. He showed up, I got my midnight kiss, and we have been together ever since. Turns out he's just a bit old-fashioned and doesn't like to rush things. I've never dated someone who took things as slow, and now I actually really like it, as things happen in our relationship they feel so much more genuine because they weren't rushed.
Your guy could just be similar, not wanting to rush things. Some guys take it slower when they REALLY like a girl and see a serious potential. He could also be shy. Just be patient and give him some time. Enjoy the ride (:
It depends on how many times you've gone out. If this was your first date, then don't be concerned. Maybe he's an actual gentleman. But after a few dates, then this guy is just a friend, and you haven't really been on dates.
Maybe he freaked out in the moment. Trust me some guys are like that and he's probably regretting it right now. His breath could have smelled so he didn't feel comfortable kissing you. Dont assume it's always a bad thing. If he texts u and ask for another date, that's a good thing.
Not at all, I've been on quite a few first dates (mostly from online dating haha) and the vast majority of the time the guys don't try to kiss me at the end but they still end up calling/texting me for another date. My ex boyfriend didn't try to kiss me for 4-5 dates! He (and I) were physically shy and he didn't want to move too fast. But we still ended up dating for almost 2 years
I'm so glad you asked this question because I was going to practically ask the same thing! He said he wanted to see me again and hugged me a couple times but never kissed me. Also it was just the two of us and no one else and it was the first date.
It can be a lot of pressure to kiss someone new after a first date -- he was probably nervous or didn't want to rush it. The fact that he gave you a hug and told you he wants to see you again is a great sign. :)
Some guys move slower. Give him a chance.
It could just mean he respects you (which is almost a foreign concept these days) and is waiting for the right time or to ensure you're fine with it.
He will probably kiss you on the second date
