In the French culture kissing/affection is considered something big- often shared between boyfriends/girlfriends that are exclusive.

However, if you are someone looking for multiple dates and don't want to be tied down, it could prove to be frustrating; you have to handle it from the beginning and be honest...
and it is also normal for us to date more than one person during a period of time.
Often it's just not a big deal and the good night kiss is sort of an expected thing... It's totally normal to go on a few dates, then just decide it's not for you.
