How to greet a girl on a first date? watch

    I've known her for around a year, just sitting next to her I lectures.

    We have gotten closer recently, she teases and jokes around with me a lot.

    I've asked her out for dinner and she said yes.

    So I want to go for a hug early on, it breaks the touch barrier and sets the tone for the evening.

    How would I do it?

    I'm picking her up, so...

    1. Get out of my car, and greet her. Hug her. But this feels a bit try hard.
    2. Let her get in the car, say hello while offering a hug.

    I always greet with a hug. It does set the tone for the evening and I don't think it's too try hard, just don't grab her ass or hug her for too long. A quick hug should do the trick.

    Never handshake, it's not a job interview.

    At the very least it will make her smile.

    So should I do it in my car, or get out for her?

    giving hugs in cars is just uncomfortable,

    do the 1st one, wait outside the car, greet her with a hug and maybe a kiss on the cheek, and help her in the car?
    Also dont think about it too much, just go with the flow and let things happen!!

    Gooood luck!!!

    I think hugs are a bit friend zoney. I wouldn't want to hug my date. I think just give her a cheeky grin when she comes into the car and then a couple times during the journey could put your hand on her leg or arm (briefly) during conversation when you're making a point. And when you reverse, put your hand behind her headrest. Even at the end of the date I'd avoid hugging at all costs instead go for either a kiss on the cheek or on the lips.

    DO NOT HUG UNLESS YOU WANT FRIENDZONED.
    If you want to break the touch barrier, a brief hand-to-shoulder/upper arm touch while saying hi/greeting her. Otherwise, if you are walking through a crowded/semi crowded space, guide her to walk in front of you with a hand to the shoulder/back.

    SUBTLETY IS KEY, MY FRIEND.

    Good luck on your conquest.
