If anything, you should start off with the small things and work your way up.
If you try and kiss a woman before she is ready (say during the first date), then you may piss her off. She may feel invaded, and if the kiss didn’t go well, she may even be a little turned off towards you.
If you wait too long, she may give up on the kiss and you may end up in the friend zone.
It is funny that we talk about consent so often but we don’t even ask about the small things.
Asking for consent for something so small shouldn’t be the end of the world.
Plus most people lick their lips when they are getting ready for a first kiss.
They want to make sure their lips are ‘kiss-worthy’.
And if she is acting awkward and quiet (looking at the ground, playing with her hair, or anything else out of character), then she is likely waiting to see if you are going to give her a kiss.
Don’t wait and make the moment more awkward than it has to be or else you will disappoint her and yourself.
Next time you really want to kiss someone, give it a shot.
For some people, it is even unimaginable that someone who has a dislike for kissing would express desire for a relationship.
Fortunately, a woman will give you signs when she is interested in you physically and ready for the first kiss, and you can use these signs to time the first kiss at an appropriate time.
