    First gay date ever

    I’m a guy, mid-20s, going on my first date ever with a guy. Met him online and we’ve talked a few times. All this is new to me, so was wondering one simple question. When I pick him up, do we kiss on the cheek or shake hands? Maybe give a hug instead? Not sure what is proper. Thanks!

    It really depends on what feels right. There is no protocol for this. Just be yourself maybe he’ll deside the way to greet you. Take things slow you’ll have a great time. Good luck 🙂

    As said, it is whatever feels right at the moment. There is no right or wrong way to go about greeting him. Decide what you will do based on his personality and how your conversations online have gone.

    Start out with a handshake and then go for a hug at the end. If he goes for more and you’re comfortable, let him.

    Personally, I’m a hugger. I feel it connects me with the person I’m with. But like everyone else has said, do what feels right. Most important thing for the night to go well is both of you feeling comfortable.

    I agree that doing what feels comfortable is key. But as a personal preference I’m a hugger. No one can fault you for a quick, hello-glad-to-see-you arms above the waist hug. If it feels a little awkward, that’s the fun of dating!

    Just have to do what ever you think feels right.

    Just be yourself mate, there is no specific protocol as some others said earlier. But do not try to go to bed on a first date. Just try to understand if he just want sex or a relationship. I assume that you are looking for a long term relationship as you want to be careful with every step. If so, make it clear to him by asking questions to know him well.

    Good Luck man 😉

    It’s probably happened by now, but if it hasn’t, I’d probably just do a handshake, since you most likely will not be totally relaxed when you first me in person.
