Dating Tips and Advice from our Award Winning Matchmakers

Should you kiss on the first date?

kissing on a first date

We’ve all been there: it’s the end of a date. You think they’re gorgeous and you’re pretty confident they’re into you, too. But it’s only a first date – should you kiss?

Obviously we’re talking about more than a peck on the cheek.

Here are the DDM first date kissing tips…

Meaningful relationship vs instant passion

We’re not being prudish because there’s absolutely nothing wrong with instant passion. But if you’re looking for more than a one-night stand, it makes sense to wait and give things chance to develop into something more special.

Cheek-to-cheek or mouth-to-cheek

Opt for just a ‘brushing’ kiss to let your date know you’re interested without taking things too quickly. Watch the video above for tips on how to make even a cheek-to-cheek kiss seem electric.

Keep your options open

If you think you might be interested but you’re not yet certain, try a mini-hug combined with a cheek-to-cheek kiss. It shows friendliness and physical contact, while also setting clear boundaries.

Arm squeeze or handshake

If you’re really unsure whether your date is interested in seeing you again, or if you’re certain that you don’t want to see them again, a friendly arm squeeze or a handshake will make it clear that you’re saying goodbye and clarify what you see as the appropriate levels of physical contact.

Escaping an unwanted first date kiss

How do you deal with an attempted French kiss on the first date if it’s unwanted or if it’s too soon? It can be a very awkward situation, and one that derails many potential relationships before they have had any opportunity to develop.

In the video above you’ll find tips on getting the situation under control.
