First kisses are awkward whether it’s the first time you’ve been kissed or the first kiss with someone new. You think it’ll be less awkward after kissing a couple more people, but nope. It’s like you forgot how to kiss because everyone kisses differently, and it’s nerve-racking. It could either be amazing or really bad like the wet and sloppy ones. Yuck. Did you know guys get really nervous when it’s the first kiss? Making the first move is not easy. He doesn’t want to come off like a creep when he initiates the kiss. It might seem like he’s playing it cool when he tries to kiss you, but his palms are probably sweating from all his nerves. You’d be surprised how many thoughts are running through his head before, during, and after kissing.
1. Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?
Sometimes it’s hard to differentiate between reality and fantasy. And when it’s your first kiss, oh boy! You sure are in the seventh heaven. It can be hard to believe that a kiss just happened; better pinch yourself to believe it.
2. Does my breath smell? I should’ve taken a mint.
He decides to kiss you, but he’s worried that his breath might smell. Even if he didn’t have garlic or onions, he still worries that he might have bad breath. He thought he could offer some to you, but then he thinks, “How am I supposed to kiss her if she’s chewing gum?” Well, he can’t because that’s gross. Maybe it’s okay if you’ve dated for a while, but definitely not for a first kiss.
3. She looks so beautiful, I really want to kiss her already.
But of course, he doesn’t want to rush into anything. He doesn’t want to pressure you into it. But he can’t deny just how irresistible you look in his eyes. He just wants to have all of you right away.
4. I really hope there isn’t any food stuck in my teeth.
You guys go out for a little walk to just talk, or he drops you off at your place after the date. Either way, he had a great time with you, and he wants to kiss you. Before he goes in for a kiss, he wonders if he has any food stuck in his teeth because he did have that delicious meal earlier.
5. I wonder if she can tell that I’m really nervous about this.
Before he tries to kiss you, he wonders if you can tell how nervous he is. He hopes you can’t hear his heart beating so fast because he thinks it’s embarrassing if you could. He really wants to be a man, and just go for it, but it’s easier said than done. It’s okay. It’s normal to feel a bit nervous. It’s actually better that way because it means he really likes you, and he’s not a player.
6. Stop thinking. Be a man and go for it!
It’s not just a catch phrase for a popular shoe brand. It’s a lifestyle. He doesn’t want to overthink it anymore and he’s just going to go ahead and do it.
7. What am I supposed to do with my hands?
Kissing isn’t just about locking lips and using tongue. He doesn’t want to leave his hands at his sides because it looks a bit ridiculous and the only thing moving will be your mouths. The kiss won’t be that intimate, either. It would instead look like he didn’t want to kiss you, and it was a dare or something. So, he thinks to himself, “What should I do with my hands?” while he’s kissing you. He wonders if it’ll be okay to place them on your hip like many guys do, but he worries you might not want that yet.
8. I want to see if she likes it but I need to keep my eyes closed.
He wants to know if you’re liking what he’s doing. But he also knows that he needs to keep his eyes closed and concentrate on the actual kiss.
9. I hope she doesn’t think I’m a bad kisser. Should I try again?
When you guys pull away from the kiss, he hopes you don’t think he’s a bad kisser. It’s what bothers him the most. A lot of guys think they’re great kissers, and they want to be the best you’ve ever had. So, he replays how the kiss went over and over again to see if there was anything that he did wrong or anything he could’ve done better.
