There's no verse in the bible that says: Thou shalt not kiss.
I grew up in the church, and never heard that churches pushed that type of restrictions to dating (until recently when I talked to a few folks here at TAM).
In my church it was just: don't have sex.
That was pretty much it.
I dated my wife for a little over a year before I proposed... and we kissed on our first real date. We kissed on every date after that, and I've never felt the slightest bit guilty about it.
Oh and let me tell you our kisses were VERY VERY long and exciting... and we did it a LOT most of the time we dated and during our engagement.
