First dates are hard for a number of reasons, but perhaps the biggest is the kiss.
“Yep I’m going to kiss her. Wait no. Yes. No.” This is the mindset of every guy towards the end of a first date.
The decision he makes could make or break his potential relationship with this girl. If he kisses her on the first date, she might think he is too forward. But if he doesn’t kiss her she might think he is a pansy. What to do? Let’s weigh the options.
The first option is to kiss her. To some guys this is the only option. Kissing on the first date is definitely a risk. When it works out, it is like stepping out of bondage into the Promised Land. But when it doesn’t work out, it is like stepping out of bondage into hell.
The second option is to not kiss her. She may think you are a pansy but the biggest problem with not kissing her is that you are just putting it off. The longer you put it off the harder it will be and the closer you will come to entering the eternal pit of the friend zone.
The majority of girls I talked to here at Snow College said it would be too forward for a guy to kiss them on the first date. Most of these girls agreed that they were the types who want a fairytale ending and that kissing on the first date didn’t fit in the picture.
I find it interesting how a number of the Disney princesses kissed on their first dates and things seemed to work out fine. But life is not a Disney movie and we must run the risks to reap the rewards.
Snow College freshman Kyle Butler said it best, “Either way it is going to be a risk, you just have to follow your gut and hope things work out.”
