    Talking about kissing (Could really use a woman's perspective on this one)

    Not quite a week ago I had a really great date first with a really cute girl and we’ve made plans to meet again tomorrow. I’ve always heard that if I like the girl, I should make an attempt at a kiss by end of the second date, or else it looks like you either aren’t that interested, or you’re not confident enough in yourself to make an attempt (and I know confidence is important.) I didn’t kiss her on the last date (we hugged, but I’m a little shy.)
    The problem is that now I’m getting over a cold that was really bad a few days ago. Right now I’m not so bad that I can’t be around people, I just cough and sniffle a little. I’m not asking if I should kiss her, I know I shouldn’t. I don’t want to get her sick. I’m asking, should I say something, either beforehand, or during the date, so that she knows that it’s not her, and I’m not overly timid? Is explaining myself like that gonna look weird? I’m pretty sure it’s gonna look weird but I don’t know what else to do. Am I over thinking this?

    I’d say your overthinking, I wouldn’t be worried you weren’t interested if we didn’t kiss on the second date as long as there was that connection all night. I think if your sick I’d avoid it just be polite, express that you’ve had a cold recently during conversation so it doesn’t sound too weird
