Kissing is great when it goes right, but for many, their first kiss doesn’t happen the way they planned. For some it may have been magical and for others it was awkward or just plain gross. For almost all, however, it was memorable for one reason or another.
They say it isn’t polite to kiss and tell, but not everyone heeds that advice. Read on to hear a few first-time kiss experiences from others.
A Good Night Surprise
It was the end of my 5th date with the same guy and he walked me to my door. We were hugging good bye and as soon as I pulled away, he leaned in and kissed me. I wasn’t expecting a kiss at all. I didn’t know what to do after that, so I didn’t say anything and turned to go inside my house. Just then, he grabbed my hand and said, “That’s not fair,” and pulled me back and kissed me again. I was in shock. After that I calmly said, “Good night,” and walked into my house. As soon as the door closed, I began screaming with excitement. Just then I received a text on my phone saying, “May wanna wait till I get to my car before you start screaming.” I was so embarrassed.
Just Plain Awkward
When I was 16, I was the only one of my friends with a girlfriend. My friends were always asking me if I had kissed her yet so I felt a lot of pressure. One night, we were with my buddies hanging out in a grocery store parking lot. Nothing was going on, so she and I walked away from the group up a hill. We stopped and stood there a while not saying much. Eventually, I just leaned in to kiss her because I knew my friends were going to ask me again. It was so awkward. We kissed a few minutes and I didn’t know what to do with my hands, how to stand or what to say after. On top of that, her lips were chapped, and I could almost feel them cracking under the pressure. When we stopped kissing, we didn’t say anything to each other. We just walked back to our group of friends. I remember walking back and thinking, “That was gross.”
He Kissed Like a Wet-Vac
My first kiss was in 8th grade. I had been “going out” with this guy from school for about a week. We met up at an amusement park that day with several of our friends. When it was time to leave, I gave him a hug and left to catch my ride. I had wanted to kiss him all day, but he never made the move. As I was walking away, he called out my name and started running towards me just like in the movies. At first he gave me a sweet peck on the lips. Then, suddenly, he grabbed my head and it seemed like he was practically sucking my face off. It was the sloppiest kiss I could have ever imagined, and I just couldn’t wait for it to be over.
I had been on a date all day with a guy that I really liked. He was dropping me off around 2am. He walked me to my door and I stood there with anticipation, as I wanted him to make the move. We had been on two dates and he shook my hand at the end of both. After standing on my doorstep for several minutes talking he still wasn’t catching any of my signals so I leaned in and kissed him. His back was against my house and we kept kissing for several minutes. Unknown to us, he was leaning against the doorbell and my parents were inside sleeping. It was ringing over and over. Suddenly the front door swung open, and I heard my Dad shout, “Put that boy down and get in here!” Luckily, he didn’t scare him away, and we were married a year later.
Though first kisses sometimes aren’t what we imagine they will be, hopefully your next kiss will be just as memorable as your first.
