First Time Making Out?
If you've never made out with someone before, you probably feel pretty anxious about it. Maybe you have a date this coming weekend, and you hope to kiss someone for the first time, but your mind is racing with a million different questions: How do I start? What do I do with my tongue? What exactly is "French kissing" anyway?
Relax . . . I'm going to give you some tips and pointers that will help to make your first make-out session a success! First, there are a few basic rules that you must remember. These take precedence over everything else!
Rule #1: Relax!
It's probably going to be hard to relax and remain calm, but try to have fun and don't obsess over every little detail. If it's going to happen, then just "go with the flow."
Rule #2: Take It Slow
Even though you will be nervous and excited all at the same time, you need to slow down. Don't rush into things and try to kiss your date unexpectedly, out of nowhere. It's best to get you and your partner away from the crowds and talk for a while. Try to gradually work your way closer to them (slowly!) until you are at least holding hands or maybe have your arms wrapped around each other. Try to be smooth.

Rule #3: No Means No
Even if you want to kiss your date really, really badly, if they resist or reject your advances, you have to stop and respect their decision. No ifs, ands, or buts—if they don't want to make out with you, then that's it.
You can't force yourself on someone, not even just to kiss them. It's wrong, immoral, and illegal. If you kiss them, and they reject you, take a step back and try to talk about it. Talking about your feelings is hard, but nobody ever went to jail for it!
Basic Instructions for Making Out
Kissing is pretty simple, but making out requires a little bit of creativity and passion. It needs to be done at the right moment, and your partner needs to be ready too.
- Start by slowly moving your faces closer and closer. Begin with a light kiss on the lips. Read your partner and try to match their energy. If your partner doesn't freak out and run away screaming, keep going!
- After a few more light kisses, open your mouth a little and slide your tongue across your partner's lips. If they open up too, slide your tongue into their mouth (remember—slowly and gently!).
- Caress their tongue with yours. Move your head around slowly to approach from different angles.
That's pretty much it! Watch the video below for step-by-step instructions on how to make out successfully.
Remember, there are many different types of kisses; making out is only one of them. Kissing is a great way to display passion and share intimacy with someone, but tongues don't always need to be involved. With that said, try these techniques out on that someone special, and good luck!
