To Kiss Or Not To Kiss ... THAT Is The Question
Are you ready for some lip-to-lip loving?

Just how important is the first kiss at the end of the first date? Recently I was talking to a client of mine about this very subject, and I was telling her that sometimes I don’t kiss at the end of a first date . . . I go in for the hug instead.

I just think the first kiss on the first date is overrated. Technically you are total strangers. You sat across from each other at a table somewhere, or maybe you took a walk in the park, or you spent a couple hours talking . . . and then what? You need to seal it with a kiss?

I don’t think the first kiss is important on the first date. What’s important on the first date is the recap in your mind after you leave them. When you go home and you do the post-date recap, what were your answers to these questions?:

* How do you feel overall after the date?

* What are you thinking about?

* What did you think about this person and their lifestyle?

* What did you think about some of the stories they were sharing?

* Were there any warning signs?

* Was there anything they said that really made you nervous?

* Is there anything you want to do with them the next time you see them?

* Can you imagine sharing with them an experience or adventure they told you they had (or would like to have)?

Another step in evaluating the first date occurs when you wake up the next morning. So see how you answer these questions:

Summer is magic on the East Coast. It was funny. Before I went on this little break, I was thinking about where I wanted to go. I live in a perpetual spring and summer. I live in a place where the ocean really isn't that clean. When you're somewhere the weather is always so nice and sunny, you forget what it's like to have a summer. When I go ... Read more

Do you wake up in the morning and think right away, "I need a coffee to start my day. I'm not going to be able to start my day until I have that coffee.
