Going on a second date with a guy. On the first date we hugged hello and goodbye. We did not kiss and I'm glad we didn't. He is a respectful guy. It wasn't the right time and I wouldn't have been ready. For the second date I want to touch a little more to gauge my attraction for him. We are seeing a movie at the theatre and then going to dinner. What are some things I/we can do to increase attraction, break the touch barrier, and feel more comfortable touching? I'm not aiming to kiss him just yet. If it happens I might go for it but I want to take it slow and see how it goes. By the way the armrest between the movie seats go up so we could sit pretty close to each other.
Most Helpful Guy
-Rest your head over his shoulders during the movie
-Hold hands while walking
-If you are going to dinner. Maybe he wears suits, you can go fixing his tie for him even tho nothing would be wrong with the tie. Or just find a way to approach his body and cloths according to what he wears.
-You mentioned you might see scary movies. You can pour your physical reactions on him. Not necessary be scared. You can make your reactions up in order to just make the physical connection.
-During the dinner, on the table, you can move your hands toward the same objective that he tried to pick up. It could be a tissue or another similar objectives. This way a hand connection will be established.
-Wiping his mouth also is a good option as someone suggested.
However, it would be more suit to communicate openly and declare that you are willing to take it slow. This way, you can make the physical connections very fearlessly without certain stress and overthinking. Communication and expressing your feelings and setting up the boundaries around your comfort zone is always crucial and effective.2
