This column from earlier in the week prompted some thoughts about how far people are going in the first couple of dates. (It also prompted at least one person to leave the site for good, but that’s another story.) The LW didn’t kiss on the first date, and we can assume from her letter and her update, that that’s probably normal for her. Obviously, she was thrown for a loop when her date invited her back to his place on the second date, and she didn’t know if she had reason to feel offended, unsure what other people consider normal and appropriate. What are your feelings? Do you kiss on the first date? Would you/have you gone home (or invited someone to your home) on the first couple of dates? I went home with a guy on the first date once. You want to know what happened?
Reader, I married him.
What’s your story?
