When to have first kiss when dating

I ended up going further than I should have physically, which I would later regret.

The Bible does talk quite a bit about kissing, including at least one clear instance of kissing before marriage.In fact, in that case (Genesis ), you have a guy (Jacob) kissing his future wife (Rachel) the first time they meet, sort of like a first date.However, kissing was more of a common greeting then, like a hug or a handshake today; the Bible also talks about Jacob kissing his dad (Genesis -27), his brother (Genesis 33:4), and his uncle, whom he’d also never met before (Genesis ).So we’re probably talking about pecks on the cheek, not open-mouth kisses with tongue.

Later in life, when marriage actually was a possibility, each dating relationship carried the question of when we should first kiss.

I wish I could say I was wise about it, but the ignorance of junior high continued, and therefore I was driven more by emotions and desires.
