Teens dating u s kissing
ORIGINS OF DATING Dating is definitely an "American phenomenon." Few other countries carry on this practice with as much fervor as Americans do.Then again, few other countries have the same social conditions as America.
Even if you've been kissed by someone before, a lightning-fast peck on the cheek behind the monkey bars from your seven-year-old cousin Jamie in the third grade isn't really the same.
A few days ago, as an American friend of mine was telling me all about her new boyfriend and how he had asked her out with flowers, I realized how different courtship and dating is for teens in France and the US. Americans go on formal dates; we keep things secret. The word “date” has no equivalent in French, and it’s simply because we don’t go on them.
Americans only say “I love you” after months of dating. You might wonder how people get to know each other then.
From kids as young as seven and adults in their twenties, first kiss stories don't always involve teenagers.
So if it hasn't happened yet, don't worry, you will receive your first kiss eventually. There will be plenty of time for kissing later when you're done learning high school stuff.
