First Kiss


Let’s be realistic – there’s nothing more important, when it comes to the beginning of a relationship, than the first kiss. How it feels, what it means, and what it could lead to are only the beginnings of its role in the play that can become your lives together. Obviously, then, there’s going to be a lot of pressure on that epic moment. It can really set the tone for the rest of what’s to come – and how you want to progress from there.

Forget Expectations

No matter who the kiss is with, no matter how¬† long you’ve known the person, don’t set yourself up for failure by freaking yourself out. Whether it’s a new flame or your best friend, someone you just met or the person who knows all your deepest secrets, prepare yourself for the worst – and then be surprised by the outcome. Everything is better than the worst – tongue amputation!

Relax and Feel

Don’t let your head get in the way. Don’t think too much about specifics; any kissing expert would tell you that the real science of kissing is in reacting to what your partner wants. When you really think about what counts, it’s how the two of you move together. So tell your commanding brain to SHUT UP and think about what feels best with what’s actually going on in and around your mouth.

Move On

Don’t let the first kiss be the end-all-be-all of your relationship. Although everyone may not be able to change their relationship routine, they can definitely change the way they physically kiss someone. The two of you will, eventually, grow together – unless something else determines that the other person isn’t good enough to grow with. Whether you bump your teeth or your panties get wet – there will be time for more. Lots more, once you move along with your relationship.
