It seems that with everyone experiencing the business of busyness, kissing is becoming a lost art. Add to that the onset of online and internet dating (speed dating anyone?), slow, lingering kisses are becoming a thing of the past.
Think about the last time you kissed for what seemed like eternity. How about the memory of your first kiss; that awkward yet heart-soaring moment when lips first touched.
While kissing is a delight and a pleasure in and of itself, there are some things you should never do while kissing. Here is a list of 10 of those things.
12. Go On A Mind Journey
In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to get caught up in wondering about what’s next on the to-do list. Never, ever do this while kissing. Your partner will feel your vibe and catch your distant energy. They may think you’re not that into them.
11. Have A Defense Strategy
Analysis paralysis does not work when in kissing mode.
10. Have A Stare-Down
Close those eyes and let the rest of the world melt away. Enjoy that kiss!
9. Act As If All Kisses Are The Same
Don’t be too shy to ask how they like to be kissed. Then show them what you’ve got.
8. Don’t Get Stuck In One Spot
Don’t get stuck in one spot when kissing – literally. Spread those kisses around to the neck, the earlobes, and eyelids. A combination of kisses in different places from neck to forehead is tantalizing.
Feel free to be playful. Tease, tempt, and taunt. Your partner will be glad you did.
7. Use The Tongue Down The Throat Method
Give a little to get a lot does apply when kissing. A little taste of the tongue will leave them wanting more.
6. Take The Fast Lane
Make sure you’re on the same page. Don’t be afraid to enjoy life in the slow lane when kissing.
5. On Being Passive
When they push, you pull. If they pull back, you can lean in. Enjoy the ride!
4. Share The Gum
It’s not as cool as you think. It’s as bad as sharing too much tongue.
3. Tantalize Too Much
Besides that, it’s considered downright annoying by some. Go with the flow, follow their lead, savor it.
2. Text While Kissing
That Instagram pics can wait, your partner may not. Put down the phone; nobody will get hurt.
1. Let Your Tongue Do The Talking
Make sure your partner is on the same page, whether it’s chapter one or the last page.
Whether it’s your first kiss or your “last, first kiss,” each time will be different. There are plenty of how-to articles on how to kiss someone for the first time or how to have a really great makeout session.
Sometimes, you have to take a look at what not to do. Too much tongue (or too much saliva for that matter) is a real turn off. You might want to swallow first before diving in deep for that first big kiss.
Sometimes knowing what not to do trumps knowing what to do. Kissing is one of those times.
