The first kiss can force you into a tailspin of over-analysis, uncertainty and fear of rejection.Once you understand the secrets to smooching, scoring some mouth music will be a minor gamble rather than a major flip-out.
The casual sweeping of her shoulders as you help her with her coat, or her response when you brush against her hand in the popcorn bag or touch the small of her back as you guide her to the table provides plenty of clues.
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.
Maybe a hand on hers at the dinner table or a steady arm when walking her to the car will be a comfortable next step toward sealing the smooch.
Hug It Out One way to learn about how a woman feels about you is to assess the hug response.
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.
If she seems a little put off—delivers the dreadful double pat on the back or the famed rigid arm hug—then you have a little more work to do in loosening her up and heading toward romance.
Enthusiasm Matters If she’s interested, her eagerness will show.
It’s generally those “in-between” times that will reveal her level of interest, clueing you in to how she feels about spending time with you.
It’s generally in the lull between dinner and the movie or during the walk to the car that she has the best opportunity for reasons—or excuses—to end the date and go home.
See if she is anxious to continue the date with you.
