What Will My First Kiss Feel Like: 10 Things to Expect
What will my first kiss feel like? How long will my first kiss last? What if she does not reciprocate? Will my first kiss be just like the movies? How will my first kissing experience be? Will he use his tongue? Will my first kiss be just like kissing the back of my hand?
Know all about the first kiss experience and find out what to expect when you kiss for the first time.
1) The first kiss could be totally spontaneous
You may have been planning for the picture perfect moment when you kiss your boyfriend or girlfriend for the first time at a certain place and time. However, chances are that it may not happen exactly the way you expected.
Your first kiss could happen at your place, in a backyard, at a party, in the bus, at his place when his parents are not around, a chilly winter date, at a friend's place or at the most random of places. It could be as spontaneous as a lightning strike, so don't expect the precious moment to happen exactly at the time you want it to.
2) You will feel nervous when you kiss for the first time
Regardless of how much you have thought out your first kissing moment over and over again in your head, it may be that you will still feel nervous when you lock lips for the first time.
If you really have deep feelings for the guy or girl who shares your first kiss, your mind is likely to go blank. Along with butterflies in your stomach, you may experience a pang of nervousness just before you lean in.
3) Your girlfriend or boyfriend may not reciprocate instantly
If you take the charge and decide to make the first move, your guy or girl may be taken aback and be left dazed. If this happens, he/she may not reciprocate instantly. Don't look at this as a sign of denial.
Continue leaning in towards your partner. Sense the situation and if you think that your boyfriend or girlfriend has been left stunned out of surprise, plant a tender kiss and take it with the flow.
4) Both of you could tilt your heads the same way
Unless either the guy or the girl has kissed before and knows how to take charge, both could amusingly tilt their heads the same way and fumble up the kiss in the beginning.
This comic fumble is cute and the both of you are likely to giggle it off as you proceed to kiss each other for the first time.
5) You could bump noses or foreheads
Don't feel sad if you bump noses with the guy or girl you lean in to kiss for the first time. It could be possible the either one of you comes in too fast or too slow, leading to a romantic nose bump or a funny forehead bump with each other.
Nose bumps can happen when both partners tilt their heads the same way. A forehead bump could be on the cards if both the guy and the girl approach each other with downward looking faces. Either way, treat it as a something funny that just made your first kiss even more playful.
6) Expect your first kiss experience to be soft and tender
First kisses are generally not ravaging as the ones partner usually share as their relationships progress inside the bedroom. Expect your first kiss to be tender and soft. Both of you are likely to be in exploring mode and that leaves little room for a bumpy ride.
7) Don't expect biting when you kiss for the first time
Kissing for the first time is a discovery for both the guy and the girl. Unless your partner is an expert kisser, both of you are likely to stay away from any kind of biting or nibbling.
Don't be afraid and don't speculate about whether it will hurt if he/she bites, because the chances of that happening are slim.
8) Your first kiss could get over very quickly
Unless there is tongue action, chances of which are less, your first kiss could be over quicker than you expected it to be. But even if it lasts only a couple of seconds, it will be etched in your memory as the longest few seconds ever.
Slow motion romantic kissing scenes in the movies seem to last for eternity but in real life, a short but tender lip lock could be all you get for the first time. Don't be disheartened and if you think that your first kiss got over too fast too soon, lean in for another go.
9) You could giggle and laugh afterwards
The first kiss experience is a jolting concoction of emotions, racing heart beats, nervousness, fumbles and happiness. The exciting moment may leave you giggle with a jolt of romantic happiness up your spine.
10) First kisses could be sloppy if there is tongue involved
Generally there is not much of tongue action involved in the first kiss. But if your first kiss transforms into a romantic make-out session, expect the tongue to venture out, depending on your appetite for intimacy. Licking may be the natural thing to do after both of you have explored and felt a tender touch on the lips.
Unlike seasoned kissers, you and your guy/girl are likely to lick all over each other's lips, inside and outside. And as tongues find their way deeper into each others' mouths, your first kiss will go from dry to sloppy to wet.
Remove the baggage of expectations: Your first kiss can be nothing like you expect
Regardless of how many times you have practiced the moves you are going to pull off when you lean in to kiss your girlfriend or boyfriend for the first time, a first kiss seldom goes according to plan.
It's like having sex for the first time and the magical moment will take its own turns. Don't drown yourself in a sea of expectations from the very moment you start thinking about kissing a guy or a girl for the first time.
Your life is not a movie set – Feel free and share your first kiss with someone who you think is worth feeling happy and sad for. Forget the expectations and embrace your kiss, the way it turns out to be.
