Do you still remember your very first date? Chances are it’s been quite some time between that first innocent encounter and your present day reality. It is said that the human brain is wired to remember two things in the long term.
The first is the memory of extreme pleasure such as an astoundingly successful first date.
The second is a memory that elicits extreme pain such as a first date gone terribly and dreadfully wrong. They say that any experience outside of these two emotional extremes fall into the deep, gray abyss of forgetfulness where all your unremarkable memories eventually go to fade.
So what makes a first date or any kind of date in fact, a successful date? The kind of date that can make anyone go googly eyed and blushing even after several years have gone by? The kind of dating experience that leaves a soft, sweet taste of nostalgia on the lips and a tingle in your belly?
Science tells that the skin is the biggest sensory organ in your body. Is it any wonder then that the most memorable dates, for better or for worse, are those where you have allowed certain intimacies to your person? Every person has a sense of personal space and the closer you allow someone to step into your personal space, the more you trust that person. The more you trust that person, the more intimate you can possibly be with that person. This is why touch is a good barometer of intimacy and is most probably the reason why you have come up with the concept of “bases” to quantify levels of intimacy.
So do you want to know more about bases in dating? Yes there is a first, second, third and a fourth base. But what exactly happens on these so called bases? What intimate touches define each base?
Well, pop culture is a wonderful thing. In the early 2000s every other coming of age romantic comedy contained a scene or at least a conversation about “going to first base.” But what exactly does going to first base mean?
Bases in Dating
First base is that first sweet taste someone’s lips on your own. Yes it can be a hesitant or passionate first kiss designed to test the waters.
Up next is second base. With first base done and gone you and your partner are now more comfortable with each other and that personal space discussed earlier is getting thinner. At this stage you now allow each other intimate touches above the waist. This stage can be a bit of a cliffhanger for many.
Things are getting more heated and so you now move on to the third base. If the flag of the second base is found above the waist, third base action is fought and won below the belt.
Last but definitely not the least is the fourth base, or what is more popularly known as the home run. At this point in time personal space is nonexistent and you have hopefully reached a state of sated bliss.
