But if you and your date are super into each other and consenting, there’s nothing wrong with going farther.
Including but not limited to fingering each other in the bar bathroom, making out in Ikea a la If after reading this list, you’re still wondering how to kiss on a first date, I recommend asking.
There are a few secret spots, though, if you’re in the know.
I have dated pretty much every girl interested in girls spanning from one lesbian mecca, Los Angeles, to the other lesbian mecca, New York.I’ve gone out with every stereotype: the hipster girl, the art girl, the nature girl.From all of these (some good, but mostly bad) dates, I have learned ways to navigate around the scene in arguably the two biggest communities in the country. Let’s say you’re a young lesbian from a Midwestern or Southern town (’cause I know at one point I was) and you’ve decided to make the move to one of these beckoning places. When this bubbly, blonde lesbian with some serious sass arrived at Cubby Hole, I found it to be my favorite lesbian bar in the country. I’m also super partial `cause I think I got hit on around twenty times. If having a drink calms your nerves before a first date, then I say go for it. To get to the perfect moment, you gotta take a chance! Life has lead us to believe that we’ll know when the moment is right. This is the part where you hear my voice in your head (or the song from the Little Mermaid) saying go on and kiss the girl! Girl, there is nothing wrong with a *SMALL* date pregame. Maybe you’ve gotten to undressing and you notice an extra long nipple hair on yourself. Maybe you’ll try to be sexy and grab your date’s face and knock over your vodka soda at Cubbyhole (f*ck my life). At the end of the day, if someone is into you, they’re into you, regardless if you’re cool all the time or not. I mean, you’re meeting a stranger from the internet. Sometimes, you’ll both awkwardly stand there and stare at each other upon saying your goodbyes, willing the other person to take action.After the event, you have the opportunity to reach out to all who attended Lesbian Dating Washington DC through our exclusive online system.All lesbian singles that attended the event will have access to our system, allowing you to connect with anyone of your choice.You can send emails and initiate conversations without disclosing your personal email address.You literally have the opportunity to connect with each lesbian woman who attended for the event right from the comfort of your home.What can you expect at Professionals in the City's Lesbian Dating Washington DC venue?For one full hour, you will have a series of mini dates with lesbian singles attending the event. Like so many things in this cruel world, first-date-kissing-initiative can be an anxiety-provoking experience, especially for two women. If I wasn’t sucking down a pinot grigio in a bar down the block before my dates, I’d never have sex again. After my first date with my ex, I was already smitten. Sometimes, I find myself making out with a hot girl and I’m like, is this real life? The best kisses are the ones you don’t have to think about: they just happen.We don’t have those weird heteronormative rules about who should make the first move. But if you’re anxious like me, you’ll still agonize over it. If someone tells me I’m sexy, I’m immediately thinking of sex (as if I hadn’t been already.) Give a genuine compliment. But don’t drink too much or you’ll look sloppy as hell and lower your chances of having an orgasm! We had talked for hours and I was sure we had a connection. And before you know it you’re ubering back to their place. If your date pulls away or indicates they don’t want to kiss, don’t kiss them.There is one very important thing you must know about lesbians and dating in these two cities: they are vastly different beasts.
