In this day and age a kiss is pretty much an automatic given. In fact it's not uncommon to hear of people having sex on the first date depending on how well lthings clicked between them. A good-night kiss is pretty much an American tradition.
No kiss or a bad kiss often amounts to no second date. People want to know if they have chemistry early on. Everyone is entitled to go at their own pace. The important thing is to find someone who wants what you want.
