So It Goes…Anyway, I hope this doesn’t leave any Bad Blood between you and Maddie and that things for the rest of the year are not Treacherous.

Learn how to make a sincere apology, and you can avoid breaking down the trust in your friendships and relationships."

I met a guy at Happy Hour on Friday. We have a date for tomorrow night. My girlfriend's and I were having coffee over the weekend when I told them I don't kiss on the first date. If the guy asks me for a second date, without having a kiss, then I know he is interested in more than just getting into bed. Some of my friends disagree and say you have to kiss on the first date to find out whether or not the guy is a good kisser and gives you butterflies. If he's not, it's not even worth having a second date. Where do you stand on this? Should you kiss on the first date or not? Is my strategy wrong or does it separate the 'gentlemen' from the users and creeps?
