So you finally kissed
Here’s what to do now
according to science, trading saliva is one way to figure out if someone is a good fit for you. It’s pretty weird when you really think about it, but there’s no denying that a good kiss is pure magic.
There’s so much focus and pressure on the first kiss that it’s normal to have no idea what’s actually going on after it happens. Sometimes you can get caught up in all the anticipation and imagining what it will be like that you aren’t prepared for what comes next.
We kissed… does this mean we’re dating?
Not exactly. It could mean that, but until you have the chat that makes it offish, it’s just a kiss. If you want to take it to that next level, make sure they know you’re keen. They kissed you too, so unless the sparks didn’t fly for them, there’s a huge chance they’re into you.
We kissed and I haven’t heard from them since.
Have you messaged or tried calling them? If not, then there is no reason why you shouldn’t have the confidence to hit them up with a cute text. If so, then babe, you’ve dodged a bullet. If someone had their tongue down your throat one night and then ignores you the next, they don’t deserve your attention.
We kissed, so does this mean we have to go further?
Absolutely not. You don’t have to do anything you’re not comfortable with. You also don’t have to kiss again until you feel like it, or at all. Your mouth – your body – your decision. The same goes for them, so if they don’t want to take it further, you need to respect that.
We kissed because it was a dare, but I want to kiss them again.
So many people have their first ever kiss thanks to spin the bottle and truth or dare! If that’s what happened to you and you enjoyed it, and you feel like your partner did as well, then there is no harm in sending a cheeky text telling them you had a good time. See what happens from there!
We kissed and he’s really into me, but
I just ain’t feeling it.
Kissing can be the most amazing thing ever, or it can totally turn you off someone. If you’ve spent countless hours imagining what it would be like to kiss Cole Sprouse (isn’t that how we all spend our spare time?) and then it happens and it’s not what you imagined, your feelings can disappear instantly. Although tbh, as if Cole would be a bad kisser!
We kissed and it was bad… is this really what kissing is like?
People have different styles of kissing and may not be great at first, but will get better with practice. If you don’t want to kiss that person again, then you also probably aren’t into them. There will come a time and a person that you enjoy kissing.
We kissed, everyone is talking about it and I’m embarrassed.
Don’t be! Kissing is very normal, and if people are talking about it, it’s because it’s juicy gossip. They’re probably jealous! Own it and remember that next week everyone will be gossiping about something else.
