When it comes to your first kiss, you have a lot of expectations about how it’s going to go. And truth be told, it’s not going to live up to those expectations. First kisses are awkward, point blank. I mean, you’re about to connect mouths with someone and that’s weird.
You can do as much prep as you want, but it’s probably still going to be awkward. And that’s okay! If you have a magical first kiss, consider yourself very lucky! Mine was not great. I don’t even want to talk about it. But once you get that first kiss out of the way, you’re on your way to a world full of tonsil hockey! Huzzah!
You’re definitely going to make some mistakes during your first kiss. Don’t worry, everyone does! Check out the mistakes you’ll make during your first kiss.
So when you're kissing, you have to like breathe through your nose. Don't forget that. It's very embarrassing when you don't breathe.
Being Too Grabby
It's weird to not touch each other while kissing, but you don't want to like pull your partner's hair out or hurt their neck or anything.
Kissing is fun! I know you're nervous, but try to relax or you're going to be all tense and stiff. You don't want your partner to feel like they're kissing a robot.
Too Much Tongue
During your first kiss, you don't know what to do with your tongue. You might just be expecting a nice kiss on the lips, but tongues get involved quickly. And you're not going to know what to do with it. That's okay, you'll find the balance!
Missing The Mark
Things get confusing when you're mashing your face together with another person. You might not quite make it mouth-to-mouth.
Closing Your Eyes Before Anything Happens
If you close your eyes before you're about to kiss, you might be stuck there with your eyes shut and lips puckered. How would I know because I definitely have never done that? Wait to close your eyes like right before your lips touch.
Look, a little bite here and there is great. But don't go all vampy during your first kiss!
And here’s a hilarious video about potential kissing mistakes you’ve gotta watch:
