How to Make Out With Someone

Kissing someone you like is a mind-blowing feeling, but making out with them? Pure ecstasy. If you're ready to take the next step, but you're not sure where to begin or what to do, read the next few tips.

Find a Quiet, Private Area

A noisy place full of people won't help set the mood at all. Instead, opt for something like a movie or an evening of stargazing. Think dark and alone. But of course, if you don't have much of a choice, a chance at getting caught is something that'll add some spice to your make-out session.

Don't Be Hasty

Take your time. Make some small talk about what a good time you're having or had the other day with him.

Break the Touch Barrier

Want to know if you have the go-ahead to make out? Touch his arm. Take his hand and pull him closer. Rest your arms on his shoulders and move a little closer. See how he reacts. If he looks uncomfortable, it may be because he is nervous, but it can also mean that he's not ready. Just don't do something that'll scare him off.

Be Flirty and Tease Him

If he seems into it, try transitioning from friendly to passionate. Bite your lip, run your fingers through his hair, and glance at his lips with a devious smile. He'll know what's coming.

Lean in When You’re Ready

Do it slowly. Close your eyes but keep them open a bit to see where you're going. Remember to twist your head to the side as a collision with your noses is something that'll ruin the moment. It is customary to lean your head to your right while your partner in crime follows suit, but do keep in mind that mistakes are made sometimes. He'll think he has to go the opposite way and end up turning his head left straight into your nose. His left is your right, and vice-versa.

Don’t Start the Sloppy Stuff Yet

Remember, this is supposed to be a cute and intimate moment between you two. Don't try the more passionate options just yet.

Do Something With Your Hands

Don't just stand there like a statue with your arms at your side! Explore his body. Weaving your fingers through his hair is always a good option, but try something that'll rev his engine. Dragging your fingertips down his chest and stomach should send a few shivers down his spine.

Lend a Helping Hand

If you can sense that he doesn't know what to do, guide him. Can you feel his hands wandering around awkward places? Promptly take his hands and place them somewhere you'd like (hips, lower-back, booty, etc.).

Don't Be Shy

Even if you know you're shy, try not to show it. Be daring. Be passionate. Make him feel like the only person you want to be with.

Don’t Be Afraid to Break Apart for a Breath or Two

It's perfectly normal to break apart to catch your breath. Keep in mind how fast your heart must be beating at that stage. Just do it slowly.

Go Right Back In

Once the two of you have recovered, try going for another round. You should also try some new positions. Straddling his lap while sitting down would make for a hot make-out session. Letting him push you up against a wall is also a rather hot option. Use your environment to your advantage.

Go to the Next Level of Making Out

If you're sure you're ready, try slipping in some tongue. Moan a little if he does something that drives you crazy. Try kissing him in other places, such as his neck, for example.

Lastly, things should go smoothly once you lose yourself in the moment.
