Dear Dr. Date,
I met this guy in my class a few weeks ago and we instantly hit it off. We were finishing each other’s sentences, had the same taste in music and visited all the same vegan juice shops. After a week of flirting in between lectures, he finally asked me out on a date! We had a great time together and he even walked me to my door. The whole time I was wondering how to ask him upstairs, or at least how to get him to kiss me. Unfortunately, he said ‘let’s do this again sometime’ and walked away.
Surprisingly, that wasn’t him blowing me off. We’ve been going out for almost two months now and I even referred to him as my boyfriend yesterday. Problem is, he still hasn’t kissed me! I’m a big believer in guys making the first move, so I don’t know what to do. How many hints can a girl drop?
I really like him, but I’m seriously wondering if he’s right for me. I’ve given him so many great opportunities and he hasn’t taken any of them! How do I get him to kiss me? Is he that oblivious or is there more to it?

Dear Clueless and Kissless,
There are a few different reasons why he may not be taking the hint. Maybe he’s got a chronic case of mono. Maybe he’s never done it before and he’s nervous. Or maybe, and most likely, he really is even more clueless than you. Some guys won’t get the message until it’s literally on their face. So go for it and see what happens!
