Because we didn’t kiss while we were dating, our time together was really sweet and we grew closer quickly.We were able to have fun doing different activities together and have great talks together.If one person’s boundaries are looser than the other, the person with looser boundaries needs to respect the other’s in love and protect them.Kissing and long hugs should not be happening between two people who are just going out on a date or two together and aren’t in a committed dating relationship.
