Hi all! You may know me as a prolific commenter on HarvardFML; this is my new and improved means of doling out relationship advice. Got a question you want to ask, or a situation you want thoughts and advice on? Email me at email@example.com, and watch this space for my answer! I’m reposting HarvardFML submissions that I’ve commented on in the past and elaborating on my original comments until you’ve had the chance to ask me new questions.
I’ve been on a few dates with an awesome girl, and I really want to kiss her but I don’t really see the signs and don’t know if it’s because she’s losing interest or is just very shy. Or if I’m bad at picking up cues. FML
Here’s an excellent technique I learned of a few years ago that has never yet failed me: in a romantic setting, if you want to kiss her but you’re afraid it’ll be unwelcome, play with her hair! Just brush the ends gently. If she lets you play with her hair, she’ll let you kiss her.
If you’re not moving forward, you’ve moving backward. Nothing kills attraction more than boredom. If you’ve been on several dates and haven’t kissed, your window might already be closing fast. I understand the nervousness; I’ve been there! Even if all the signs say go for it, you’re afraid that you’re misreading them, so you wait for perfect clarity. Well, as I’ve had to tell myself at various times: “Stop waiting for the perfect moment and just kiss her already, dumbass!”
