When saying hello or goodbye, keep the embrace short and look for nonverbal feedback. If so, you might even be able to get the short first kiss in right then.
The best time for a first kiss is when you're alone, there's a pause in the conversation and you're both looking into each other's eyes.
If you’re on your first date, the good-night kiss is almost ritualistic; I’m sure you’ve already gamed out in your head the moment you’re standing on her porch (or sitting in the car in front of her apartment building or what-have you), you’re saying your good-byes and how you had a great time and want to do this again and you can feel your palms sweating as you’re not sure whether to go for the kiss or a hug, whether to go for the cheek or the lips or just to just damn the torpedoes and hope that you’re getting a good-night beej instead of a dry peck on the lips.
So maybe you’re on your second or third date and you’re busy scanning for signals that maybe she’s expecting you to kiss her.
If she's ready for a kiss so soon, she'll be willing to wait a little longer for it, and that anticipation works in your favor.
But if she's not ready for it (or you botch it) on the first date, you might kill your shot at a second date. Kissing on the cheek is kind of weak, unless you're trying to make her feel like your grandmother.
If she pulls away at all, then slow down a bit and take some more time.
If she smiles, blushes or giggles, then it’s time to prolong your skin contact.
Otherwise, move too early, and she won't be comfortable.
Now personally, I’m not a fan of all the nervous anticipation that comes with the end of a date, so I’ll usually kiss her to really work up my calibration.
I can guarantee you, your date has probably spent just about as much time thinking about how the night is going to end as you have.
Complimenting your fragrance gives him an excuse to get up close and personal, while testing your comfort level with the invasion of space and the intimate flattery.
Some people think the moment comes at the end of the date and trying for a kiss earlier is a mistake. Sometimes it’s not a case of waiting for the good-night kiss; some girls don’t kiss on the first date, some do, good for them either way.
