8 Things About First Kisses Everyone Knows to Be True

It’s International Kissing Day! To celebrate, we wanted to bring you a list of things about first kisses everyone knows to be true. Whether it’s your first one ever or the first one in a new relationship, there are some hilarious things about them that are pretty much universal. 

1) The awkward pre-kiss chat 

 

Trying to segway from standing and talking into kissing can be a bumpy transition, and everyone has probably had to stop themselves from cringing at their partners’ awkward intros. 

2) Suddenly you become very aware that you have hands 

 

Why do you have them? What do you do with them? It’s weird to leave them by your sides hanging like low branches. But is it worse to get them all up in their hair and body when it’s the first kiss? Basically, it’s the only time in the entirety of human existence that having hands becomes a problem.

3) …and teeth

 

Kissing with teeth. Ouch. Sometimes, when you are kissing someone for the first time, it can take a minute or two to get used to each other, and that can mean teeth get bashed. Not cool. 

4) The awkward post-kiss chat 

 

After you’ve kissed, then what? Talk about the weather? 

5) It’s going to be scalding hot tea for your group chat

 

So, you know everyone in the crew is going to be super pumped for you, and as soon as you drop this knowledge in the group chat, you know there will be GIFs flying around every few seconds. 

6) Afterwards, you are feeling yourself 

 

We don’t know if it’s the feeling of being desirable, or some hormone stuff going down in your brain, but is there anything quite like the confidence you have after a kiss? 

7) And let’s not forget it is fun AF

 

Whilst it can be super awkward, and painfully cringy, a good kiss is super fun and there is no denying that. 

8) But ultimately, whether it’s your first kiss ever, or the first for you and your partner, it’s all yours. 

 

Remember that no matter how it goes, that kiss was all yours for the pair of you. Whether it was with a new person or it was the first time you’ve ever been kissed, it is something that was special for you guys. Even if it was a bit cringy at times, you own it.

  • Laughing at pain
    today was grade 8 farewell. The teachers gushed on and on about what good leaders we have been. How, in any universe, could that be. My class has been inappropriate and stupid and disrespectful. But they called us angels? It was kind of sad hearing how much teachers worshipped the bullies.

  • Break through!!!!
    Yesterday ended up being great because my dad finally made his opinion clear! He says he would support me if i came out, but he doesn't like it when people force it on others! (which i think doesn't make sense) but all is good now
