First Kisses

newly discovered blog: the essential man
loving it.

... he's describes himself as "a single guy in my mid-20s, working and living in New York. Deciding one day to write about his experiences and thoughts so far, and share his interests with anyone that might be interested. Which, of course, includes my future son."

Never ask for a kiss.

It sounds like a no-brainer, but you wouldn’t believe how many guys have told me they’ve asked a girl if they could kiss her and fell flat on their face.

It’s number three on the top ten dumbest questions you can ask list, right under “Can I ask you a question?” and “Are you sleeping?”.

While I can’t forecast every dating situation you will be in to shout at you “KISS HER!”, I can tell you this.

Watch for that one tiny fraction of time that skips.

That short moment of silence in a conversation where you two stare at each other and do that half nod.

When she looks directly at your eyes and can’t lock on for more than a second.

9 out of 10 times, should you go for it, you’ll get that kiss.

And if it doesn’t work, remember it could have been worse.

You could have asked to kiss her before getting denied.
