All systems are go!! Less than an hour into the date he spontaneously gave me a long hug, so as he pulled away I kissed him (and he kissed back!). By the end of the night we were holding hands and snogging like teenagers...so I guess that is my question answered LOL. I felt I did have to make that first move, but once I did he started initiating intimate moments with me.
I'm glad the date went well for you. As mentioned before, some men can be overly cautious until a woman clearly makes the first move. Sometimes it's because they are nervous, shy or inexperienced. Other times it can be because of what happened on previous dates. Such as thinking he was overaggressive or too eager with other women and it backfired on him.
