Expectations Vs. Reality: Your First Kiss

If you’ve never kissed anyone before, the thought of a first kiss might seem a little magical, a little scary and definitely a lot exciting. Your very first kiss is always exciting and it’s always a little nerve-wracking (where do you put your tongue?!), but, um, it’s not always magical. In a lot of cases, it can end up being a little awkward, messy and sometimes even a major fail.

But it doesn’t even matter if your first kiss isn’t the kind of kiss you’d see in the movies, because you have plenty of time to get it right! Whether your first kiss is amazing or sort of bad, it’s something you’ll remember forever… and before it happens, it’s something you’ll always think about. So what is it going to be like? Here are expectations vs. reality for your first kiss.

    I just had my first kiss last Feb 15, 2014 and at the age of 19! I know its too late for a kiss, and i don’t know whether to feel happy or what. Happy because i’m attracted to this guy, i mean im the kind of girl who doesn’t get attracted easily, so he’s kinda special. But then, i can’t be 100% happy because this guy has a girlfriend (ouch!) and he did just kissed me because we were playing this shitty game, dare or dare :(

    But then, i will always treasure my first kiss like most us do :)

    My first kiss was this summer at sleep-away camp! I know 15 is late, but it was totally worth the wait. It was actually perfect. On the fourth of july, we snuck off & were watching fireworks in the woods. Then it just happened! so yes, I can say my first kiss was while watching fireworks, I’m pretty lucky. :)

    I’m 22 and I’ve never kissed a guy, but I did kiss a girl way back in elementary school…this doesn’t give me a lot to look forward to in terms of guys. You’re always led to believe it’s supposed to be magical with a guy. Right.
