Why didn't he kiss me on our date?

We went out for the first time.. He was a total gentleman..Hold the door and insisited on paying for everything. At the end of the night he hugged me goodbye and even made a call to me on the way home. He has also called for the past 3 days since the date.. He lives about 30 minutes from me and he mentioned, "next time you'll have to come over to my area." He works as a deputy and has a crazy schedule of overnight 12-hour shifts..We havent set up another date but he has a habit of asking the same day.. Why wouldnt he kiss me goodbye? Is he interested in seeing each other again?

I think you answered it when you said he is a total gentleman. He is working on getting to know you first it sounds like to me. And I think getting to know you without adding anything physical is a good thing. Let him treat you like the lady you are. He could be a keeper. I would say he is interested. Don't think he would keep calling if he didn't want to see you again. Enjoy being treated well, you deserve it.

Not getting kissed on first date should not a big issue to you.

All guys have different notions in their minds as to what is proper pace for them. As you said, he is a thorough gentleman. So let him take his own time. His actions will be much more meaningful than the guy who rushes to kiss you at first opportunity.

I think you answered your own question... You said the man was a "total gentleman". He may not have thought it appropriate to kiss on a first date. I don't think he would have called you on your way home or called every day the past 3 days if he's not interested. Most of the time if they're not interested they just won't call at all. Maybe he's looking for a sign from you that you're interested before he decides to kiss you? My current boyfriend didn't kiss me until our 3rd date, partially because he knew I was a "good girl" and didn't want me to feel like he was pushing things. Next time he calls I would mention something you're interested in doing and see if he suggests doing it together... Either that or just flat out ask him to do something. If/when you do have a date, be sure to give him some signs you're interested in that goodnight kiss. Good luck!
