Body language! I can’t stress it enough. You will know when it’s right to kiss for the first time if you pay attention to your date’s body language.

Guys, if a girl’s rolling her eyes at every joke you’ve told and her legs are swung away from you, don’t go in for the kiss. If your date has been giggling and smiling all night, touches your shoulder or hand lightly and continues to have her body aimed in your direction, you are given the green light for an end-of-the-night kiss. Men have a tendency to be nervous when they’re into a girl and the nerves can easily turn into social awkwardness. If you’re fearful of rejection going in for a smooch, then give it some more time until you feel confident. If you know it’s the right time and there’s undeniable chemistry, then go for it! Wouldn’t you rather live without regrets?
