From the kiss of respect to platonic kiss to a passionate kiss like you see in the movies, bringing your lips in contact with someone else's is a sign of affection that most people enjoy.

But since there are many kinds of kisses to reflect the many levels of affection you can have for someone, it can be nerve-wracking! Don't worry, though--this article will go over several kinds of kisses, as well as when, and how, to give them.

The most important thing is to kiss someone you like! Mutual attraction is essential to a great kiss. Without it, all you're doing is imperative your lips together and you'll leave feeling unfulfilled and disappointed. Kissing is a way to show affection, to let someone know you really like them, and a passionate way to say "I love you."

The more feeling there is behind the kiss, the more enjoyable it will be. This is why kissing just anyone isn't really that fun, and definitely isn't a good idea. If you save those strong, passionate kisses for someone you truly have feelings for, your kissing experience will be 100 times more exciting. One of the biggest factors in good kissing is this attraction itself, as opposed to pure technique.

If you think you are picking up a little of these signs, but are still unsure if the person wants to be kissed then there is nothing wrong with just simply asking your partner if a kiss would be all right.

Granted it breaks the mood a bit, and sensing the magic is always nicer than asking if it's there, but better to be sure your partner is on board for the kiss otherwise you might be heading for an awkward situation.

If you've assessed the state of affairs, and it seems probable that a kiss is imminent, the next things to think about are timing and approach.

The key to nailing the pre kiss is matching your partner's speed and intensity. The kiss is the first chance to physically connect with your partner, and so you want to meet him or her halfway.

Steps to the Perfect Kiss

Look into your partners eyes

In anticipation of a kiss or to initiate a kiss, start by gazing into your partners eyes. Have you heard the phrase that the eyes are the window to a person’s soul? It's true.


A small, suggestive small does wonders. If you want to find out if you're partner is interested, sending a evocative smile will do the trick.

Lean in closer

Now that you know you're about to kiss, it's time to move in. To avoid awkwardness, move slowly.

Engage in light pitiful

Men: A nice touch (literally!) to the perfect kiss is to lightly touch her face as you move in.

Close your eyes

Close your eyes as you're about to make contact. Some people feel awkward if their partner's eyes are open. Besides, you'll end up with a a good deal more passionate kissing experience if you close your eyes and let the sensations drive you.

The kiss

It's finally time for impact! Gently touch your lips to theirs and you have the perfect kiss. Be sure not to pull away too quickly. You want to take your occasion and enjoy it!

When you do finally pull away, look your partner in the eyes again. A smile, an hug, or a whisper letting them know that you enjoyed it are a nice method to end a kiss.
