If you kiss on the first date and it's not right, then there will be no second date. Sometimes it's better to hold out and not kiss for a long time. I am a strong believer in kissing being very intimate, and the minute you kiss, the floodgates open for everything else."
- Jennifer Lopez
Imagine primitive man out on the hunt. He’s spent weeks searching for prime hunting grounds, days stalking a mammoth, still more days setting his trap. With the trap baited, he feels success is imminent. But what to do when he actually catches the mammoth? Clearly, a key skill set was left out. Now primitive man is left scratching his head while staring at a 30-ton beast that wants nothing more than to get out of the trap and smash him into bits -- it's much the same with the first date.
Once a man has actually gotten up the nerve to ask the woman out, he has to get through the sweaty gauntlet that is the first date. He has to impress her. Essentially, with the hook baited, he has to get her into the boat. Now that she's given him a chance, he has to be successful. While a man might have a few ideas of his own, these may or not always be successful. It's the most important meeting that a man will schedule that day, and it has to come with some panache attached. When looking to take down the big game, a man should first consult the tribe.
