Most singles 'would kiss on a first date'Posted on: June 21, 2013 12:03:37
It's an age-old question that still divides opinion in the 21st century: how far would you go on a first date?
While some UK singles are willing to go all the way if an initial meeting with a prospective new partner proves to be a roaring success, others adopt a more traditional approach and refuse to even lock lips before a second outing.
Although there is no right or wrong way to act, it seems opinions are changing regarding this conundrum and more individuals are admitting they would kiss their love interest if they felt the time was right.
Research carried out by mysinglefriend.com revealed that 88 per cent of people think it is acceptable to smooch on the first date, with only five per cent of men saying they would never go in for the kill so early on.
Some 13 per cent of ladies are still rather reserved when it comes to kissing, claiming a smooch would be out of the question.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, nearly twice as many men than women admitted they regularly enjoy a smooch on their first outing with a new romantic interest, which could suggest that women are still more restrained than their male counterparts.
However, feisty females are less willing to wait for their new boyfriends to make the first move and 79 per cent admitted they would not be reserved about being the one to take the plunge.
Therefore, it seems the days of playing hard to get and subtle flirting are over, as singles are now in favour of a more direct approach to intimacy.
Commenting on the study's findings, Sarah Beeny - website founder and TV personality - said: "Attitudes to dating and first date kisses have changed in recent years.
"We are starting to shake off that stigma that can sometimes be attached to making the first move.
"It's great to see that both men and women are growing alike in confidence, and becoming more open about the dating scene. We are slowly shaking off that cringe factor."
