this happened kind of recently. She was attracted before hand and made the conversation easy. There was a lot of awkward silence but she always stared at me and then said "sorry I stare a lot" and smiled and looked away every time. The conversation was mostly comfort, a very typical date as she kept asking me questions and we just swapped stories. She laughed a lot, Said "you're funny! ".
Good Date No Kiss
Throughout there was playful touching like high fives, tripping, pushing, etc. She decided to take me to a movie after the initial bowling.
I told her I had plans much later in the night to go drinking with friends (i did and didn't plan on sex). Told her I was a virgin and she was super (super) surprised. Like "whoa whoa what?" "no way". I said I was picky (I am, could have lost it to tons of girls that didn't meet my standards) She called me a unicorn (as in rare) and said "don't take this reaction in a bad way i just literally don't know anyone who is" but she also said "i'm kind of scared now, you dropped a bomb on me."
The touching never moved past playful/friendly.
When I dropped her off she said "get out and give me a hug" after joking about not having to walk her up. and I did and she gave me a huge hug. (huge).
I went in for the kiss (like an idiot. i know you're not supposed to at the end of the night. when we were bowling she put on her lipstick really seductively. i just didn't want to reach over the table and have her reject me, way more awkward.)
she kind of didn't react and I said "no?" like thinking "really? this has never happened to me" and she said no and giggled. I didn't move and kind of went back in (i honestly don't know why, very unlike me. was tired and wasn't thinking) and she turned her head. i pecked her cheek and she said thanks and giggled and went in for a second hug. I was in a daze, like really surprised that she denied it after she had so much fun, and she said thanks I had an awesome time and I just said "yea me to" kind of flatly. Not mad, just indifferent.
She sent me a text like a minute later on my way home saying again how much she enjoyed it with a smile.
What could I have done to make the kiss happen. I also didn't want to kiss her while bowling as she knew someone there and would have been the focus of attention but I definitely think she gave me the signal I was just too nervous and on the spot. It's so cliche and dumb to go for the kiss at the end of the night but the hug was really big and tight so I thought why the hell not. She did go inside pretty quick afterwards but everything else seemed really positive.
