First Kisses (and other fun stuff)

So, dinner  the other night with friends and I don’t even know how we got on this topic…  but somehow we got to talking about how long we tended to (past tense) wait to kiss some new person. And then, of course, how long we waited to get naked with a new person. Note how I said “past tense.”  We were talking about what we’ve actually done, not should do.

It was a judgment-free conversation (my favorite kind). And somewhat enlightening. Turns out we all though the whole idea of waiting was pretty silly. BUT, there was also some agreement that it could be a good strategic move to wait a bit. Something about the short wait making it all seem more better (more better is not a phrase I use often, but seems to fit well here).

In other words, kissing and/or sex on the first date = fine. Maybe even great. But waiting a little while can lead to some interesting results. More significance (if significance is something you’re after). However, waiting a long while just seems like a recipe for a fucking disaster. Literally.

All just a bunch of random babble, I know. But figured I’d share.
