Online dating first kiss
It can just be a formality that says, "OK, that's it.Well, I'll be on my way now." But it can also be them testing the waters to see if there is actual potential for romance there, to gauge your interest by seeing how you react to the kiss.Winter says a “normal” kiss will actually be your best barometer, because “the partner who doesn't want to startle you but wants to establish romance as the basis for your connection will opt for a meaningful, yet potent kiss on the lips,” adding that while making out can be hotter, “if your goal is a relationship, don't dismiss a normal kiss.“Still feeling confused about what that first date kiss meant?Winter has one last piece of advice: "Tune into your gut." While you heart and eyes may tell you what you want to hear, and help you to dismiss red flags, your gut doesn't lie.Unfortunately, according to Winter, there’s no real way to tell what your date’s intentions are during a make out — except for maybe that they are very attracted to you, but you won’t know from that alone if it’s real interest in you or just “sex for the sake of sex.” Hey, if that’s what you’re into, that’s totally fine.But if you’re trying to get in your date’s head, making out won’t give you a ton of info.So pucker up, girlfriend, because we’ve got some detective work to do.You might think that because kissing is not as big of a deal is it was back in the day it might not mean much, but according to Winter it actually can mean a variety of things.
And the chemistry, oh yeah, that was definitely intense.
Surprisingly, Winter says what you really want to keep an eye out for on a first kiss is awkwardness.
This is actually a better sign that your date likes you than if they managed to sweep you off your feet.
You can tell who they are because they're ‘practiced.’ There's no lack of confidence.
That indicates repetition (the hallmark of a player)," she says.
