Making Out With a Gemini

I read that a Gemini is a mix of a tornado, a child's laughter, a cup of glitter, and a pinch of salt.

Gemini is a passionate and puzzling sign. The air sign is known for being a genius. They struggle with duality—one moment they'll be sharp and critical, like salt, and the next moment they're as playful as a toddler.

So what can you expect when a Gemini starts kissing you? Speaking from someone who dated a Scorpio followed by a Gemini, the two couldn't be any more different. One is deep and brooding and full of passion. The other is full of charm and expertise.

Gemini Kissing Traits

You can expect Gemini to put their hands everywhere on your body while they're kissing you. They also like to kiss more than just your lips. . . they like to kiss parts of your body that can't be seen in public. You can also expect massages—who doesn't like those?

They Like to Get Handsy

Gemini is highly in tune with the nervous system, making them sensitive to your needs. The tongue has a ton of nerve endings. They may kiss you on the neck or somewhere else on your body. The random body kisses might be better than the kisses on your lips.

Gemini may first kiss you on the cheek or the neck. They might accidentally give you hickeys and then have to soften their kisses. With a Gemini, you can expect both passionate, crazy kisses and soft, gentle kisses.

They'll nibble on an ear and your neck. Their hands won't stay still. They can't sit still for too long. You'll change positions frequently. It would be impressive for a Gemini to give you a long, drawn-out kiss. I could sit and make out with a Scorpio for hours, but with a Gemini I change positions often.

Also, Geminis are excellent at giving massages. Again, they like to use their hands. They're also great at cuddling. Their corny yet brilliant demeanor makes them very cuddly.

Gemini Is Fun and Spontaneous

Gemini may say sweet things to you after you're done kissing, but you may have to ask some questions here and there to get the ball rolling. Don't expect long poetry. You may find yourself breaking into a laughing fit. Kissing a Gemini is fun, carefree, and spontaneous. It's happy and light—whereas with a Scorpio you might be losing yourself to the dark side.

Gemini is probably game for anything you want to try. They probably started dating you with an idea of what kind of things and places you would like to go. Keep in mind that Geminis are smart, observant, and excited people. They can have intense bouts of anxiety and do their best to keep it in check. They have sensitive and open nerves, making life somewhat difficult—other people are not as wired as they are. Intelligent people are a good match for Geminis.

Keep Mints Nearby

Gemini doesn’t think about what food you were eating beforehand. They might kiss you even if you have bad onion breath. I’m not sure they would tell you if you did. They might somehow turn it into a joke.

They Like to Kiss Whenever, Wherever

Gemini will make out with you literally anywhere you let them: your car, your bedroom, the shower, a family member's house, a playroom. Gemini doesn't always know what's appropriate and what's not. When they really get into a make-out session, they stop thinking clearly. You, as the partner, will want to stay aware and help keep things sensible. Consider whether window blinds are open, if there are people in other rooms, and if you care what your pets think.

This is a zodiac sign that constantly loves to kiss. They'll kiss you on the cheek in public, they'll kiss you when they see you. They don't ever stop—it just stays in the back of their mind.

Geminis and Scorpios Are Opposites

Gemini is a passionate zodiac, but it's much softer than its opposite sign, Scorpio. Gemini likes to stare at you lovingly and make a joke. Scorpio stares at you like they are about to eat your soul. Gemini says "you are beautiful" like a puppy who just found a ball to play with. Scorpio says “you’re beautiful” like they need to kidnap you and take you to the underworld.

So yeah, Scorpio is intense, whereas Gemini is lovable and adorable. Geminis are sometimes corny, and painfully so. Gemini wants to prove in every possible way that they are the greatest lover you've ever had. Gemini is indulgent—that's why they can't stop kissing you and thinking about you.

Scorpio, on the other hand, already knows that they're the greatest lover you've ever had. They know that if they mess with you, you will never forget them. This can make Scorpio aloof, and passive to a degree—they could exert more energy into the relationship, but they don't. Gemini can't stop putting in energy. Gemini has so many nerves and thoughts that all that energy has to come out.

Geminis want to have fun. They're dating you because it makes them happy. They care about your happiness.

Geminis want to have fun. They're dating you because it makes them happy. They care about your happiness.

Geminis Like to Stay Playful

Being playful is a big deal to Gemini. They might not be serious, and they might shy away from commitment. They want to have fun; dating shouldn’t be a chore.

When kissing, they’ll likely try to fit the rhythm of their partner. They’ll change things up as they see fit.

Gemini has a tendency to be low on patience — they’re quick-witted, so they like to get things done rather than wait around and twiddle their thumbs. If you’re not showing interest, they’ll likely move on.

Geminis tend to be more about the journey than the destination. So they’re not trying to exert all their energy in one big kiss; they spread that energy out, so they can stay playful and intimate longer.

This spring sign is skilled at seduction. This might be why they pair up so well with Aquarius, who is difficult to seduce. Gemini can still give them the space they crave. Gemini also likes Aquarius’ never-ending thoughts, even though they might not understand or agree with all of them. They really like to play with such weirdness.

A Gemini will kiss you and want to be around you all the time if you have positive energy. Geminis are sensitive to both negative and positive people. To them, a positive person is like a gift from the heavens.

Gemini's Idiosyncratic Style

Gemini will attract their lover with kissing and intimacy. Again, they like playfully winking at you, maybe playing with your nose, or even telling you a long joke with no punchline. Their wit is always right there, and it is meant to be supportive. They hope with some wit you’ll relax, and they can continue to play. A good partner will help them to bring out the sentimental.

The ruling planet Mercury makes Gemini keen to explore. Gemini kisses slowly, sensually, hard, and intensely. Like a winter storm, they have variety.

Gemini needs a partner that can keep up with them and change things up once in a while or else they will get bored. They like when you seem into it, so play with their hair and give them signals to let them know they are heading in the right direction. To get the ball rolling with a Gemini, all you need is a little bit of conversation. If this piques their interest, they’ll be attracted to you. Somewhere down the line, kissing might happen.
