CatholicMatch prides itself in the dynamic, supportive community it provides members. One way it achieves this is by hosting 40 forums (private discussion rooms), each dedicated to a specific topic. St. Joseph’s Room is for job seekers and career builders. St. Thomas Aquinas’ Room is always buzzing with theological discussion. And Abraham & Sarah’s Room is for members who are 45 and older. (We’re not saying you’re old; we’re just saying you’re wiser and more experienced than younger members.)
Carl-111594 recently started a lively discussion in the Tobias & Sara Room, where single life is discussed, posting a thread titled “Kissing on the first F2F [face-to-face date].” It has elicited 200 replies – and counting – and 1,434 views.
As to Carl’s question, the jury is still out. Many women said they were fine with a first-date smooch. “If the spark is there, go for it!” wrote Megan-21150. “There is the ‘look’ in your eyes that says she is receptive,” Glynne-385398 added.
Others expressed hesitance. MaryAlice-97161 said that’s “way too early,” and Tiffany-179390 admitted she’s shy. “On my last F2F, the guy asked me at the end if I’d be OK with a hug or a handshake,” she wrote, “and even though I’m nuts about him, I went for a handshake.”
