Eventhough I may be open-minded, I would not kiss on the first date. I would reserve after knowing that person for a while. To me it is sacred....

different culture says different, there is lot of gap in eastern and western culture.. basically my country INDIA's country doesn't allow any kind of physical interaction between two partners before marriage but now changing culture is now more over heavy in indian culture so its all right now a days to have a kiss at the first date,but on the willing of person. I personally feels its ok now.

Well in my culture it is up to you, but if you ask me I will say it depends, the situation, the person, if there is any chemistry... the place you are... I do not know how to explain it... But, if you want to do it, go ahed, and if not, you can always wait to next date, well if there is a next one...

It depends on your age! Some kids are dating in their teens, and they don't need to kiss on a first date. If you are into your 30s and still single (like I was) i would say it was OK. I was usually too nervous to kiss on a first date!

i think it depends on how well you know the person. If you have known each other forever, but are just now having your fisrt date, then it is more acceptable than if you just met the person. i think regardless, a small peck on the cheek is totally fine.

I don't want to kiss the guy on the first date. I want to be sure he is the one before I even think about kissing him!

1st date should be about knowing each other so kiss on the 1st date should not happen unless things are off the roof

It really depends on how romantic the date would go. I think its okay to kiss on the first date. If you really like each other and you find some good chemistry between the two of you, then go on...Kiss! Anyway its just a kiss. But if you can avoid it during the first time, the better.

I think all it depends upon two things - One is "Time" and the second is the "Situation". If these two are in your favour, then why not? Go ahead. It may help you to show your love for your partner.

i kissed my girlfriend on my first date... it was awesome!!! and, our relation is going stronger and great each day... above all, both our families know about us, & what more one can ask for.. eh right?!! excellent!! i believe that... "what is wrong/right" is all self created, "positivity+perseverance towards life" is all that we need!

I'm on the fence with this one. Kissing can be very intimate and not something to be shared with a virtual stranger BUT kissing can also be a very important factor in determining whether or not you have chemistry with the person or even if you have a compatible kiss... which might sound silly but I love to kiss and could not see myself spending the rest of my life with someone who is a very bad kisser!

It fairly depends on the daters... really. If both of them are that much attracted to each other and are that much free about doing it then ofcourse you must do it. As a kiss is an expression of how lovely the other person is and you want to love them so it incereases the love. Its always good to kiss and express. Keep Loving Take Care May GOD Bless YOU

Well, actually the answer should be less based on culture and more on the comfort levels between the people involved. You could be hailing from a very conservative background, but if the chemistry is booming, why ever not? At other times, in spite of coming cultures with so called modern outlooks, it might just not happen as the chemistry is absent. Try to feel the pulse of the other person. If you are a guy, try to find out if she has the hots for you too, before making any such move. If you are a girl, you might want to tease him a bit before you go ahead. It just enhances the charm of it and doesn't make you seem too available.
