When I first started dating, I didn't know it was OK to dislike French kissing, so I put up with it.I participated in games of Spin the Bottle, made out with guys at college parties, and pushed through the kissing portion of foreplay so I could get to the sex, which I actually did like.One woman I dated was astonished when I proposed a date, time, and location for us to meet up.
