Should I Kiss Her?
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Male
ok, im just entering jr. high, and im dating this girl, and we have been going out for about 2 months or so, and im not sure if i should be kissing her, or what, what shold i do?
You should never, ever do anything because you feel you "should". Intimacy is never about "should" or pressure. It is only about things you BOTH actually want to do and feel comfortable doing.
Lots of people date for YEARS before they kiss, because they really want to build up that connection first. There are so many things other than kissing that are very intimate. Holding hands while you watch a sunset can be incredibly powerful.
I have a whole set of tips on non-sexual intimacy here -
while some involves kissing, most of them are just about touch. So ignore the kissing ones for now and look at all the fun things you can do that involve building your level of contact and trust. Hugs hello and goodbye are always key!
