Tell me about it...

If I have to hear that 3Oh3! song with Ke$ha in it again, I will scream. Then no one will want to kiss me.
I have been thinking a lot about kissing. The idea of kissing, not actually kissing a person. That would require leaving my desk and frankly I'm far to busy enjoying my side-projects and my job to do that right now.
What I've been floating around on the brain waves are first kisses. Any first kiss. The first time you ever kissed another person in your whole life, or the first time you kissed a particular someone. The anticipation of what it might be like, the pride that someone wants to put their mouth on yours, the nervous flip you do through your mind wondering if you brushed your teeth. Its a strange thing, kissing. It can make you feel connected to a person or even the place its happening. It can disconnect you from all that surrounds you, and it can tear away emotions you thought you may have felt toward someone.
My first ever kiss was hardly perfect and was under the pretenses that many an American teen has had: Around the bonfire at sleep away camp egged on by friends during a game of truth or dare. I remember that he was a year older than me, but looked a bit like an overgrown toddler with large blue eyes, pink cheeks, and brown curls. The moment before our mouths touched I could sense everyones eyes on us, there must have been hesitation on my part because he practically launched himself at me. I broke it off after a few seconds, laughing along with everyone else trying to play it cool. All I kept thinking was that I had someone else's spit inside my mouth, and if my mother would find out and then what would she think.
So readers...tell me about your first kiss. You can answer anonymously if you want to.

  1. I'm so crazy inexperienced that my first kiss actually happened TODAY!

    (Aside from a creep pinning me down and forcing kissies, but I don't count that, of course!)

    It was strange, but a pleasant sort of strange. Haha.

  2. technically my first kiss was when i was 5 years old, and the both of us had no idea what we were doing. oh yes and it was also on a dare. so i don't remember it.

    therefore, i don't count that experience as my first kiss because i don't remeber it or even the boy's name. i guess that was technically my first kiss

  3. Ahh, I love this post! First kisses are the sweetest, aren't they?

    Mine was at 17 with the boy that I had the biggest crush on (I couldn't believe that he liked me too). We were probably on our 3rd or 4th date, sitting on a fallen log by the beach when he suddenly kissed me underneath the moonlight. It honestly felt like something from the movies. I remembered goin back home, tossing sleeplessly in my bed that night. So I guess I got lucky that my first kiss was pretty incredible:)

  4. My first *real* kiss was in 7th grade at my family's friends' wedding with my friend's cousin haha! Their family teases me it about to this day! I later became super good friends with the kid, but I remember being bored during the kissing! Whoopsies!

  5. My first kiss was when I was a sophomore in high school and it was with this boy who I had a huge crush on and consequently became my boyfriend for three years. I remember we were in his truck parked somewhere and he asked if he could kiss me and i was like....okay (!!!) hahah so awkward in retrospect.

    I've only ever kissed one other person and he is now my current boyfriend (of two years). I don't think I'm very good at just casually kissing/dating people ;)

  6. My first kiss was when I was 16. We'd just started seeing each other and we went to the top of the cathedral in Liverpool where we had an amazing view and he just kissed me :) Was a pretty perfect first kiss even though the relationship wasn't but meh!

  7. My first kiss was like those in the movies!

    I was 16 and he was my first real boyfriend and I had invited him over to watch a meteor shower on the trampoline at my parents house. We were cuddling and he just leaned over and kissed me all sweet/not awkward at all. Cute right?!

    -Turned out he was a liar and dated my cousin (who was also my best friend) behind my back.. Meh. oh well.

  9. Not exactly my first kiss ever, but my best first kiss with a guy is when he came over to my house to listen to some of our favourite bands. We played Scrabble and then layed on the floor listening to our favourite songs. He later had to go because it was getting late. I walked him to teh door and he hugged me. I said "I'm not one for hugs..." and I was looking down at my feet. I really wanted him to kiss me. So he grabbed my face gently and kissed me and it was so good. I like when guys just go for it and not be a wuss and ask to kiss me. There's no need to be THAT polite.

  10. I love this post! :) So cute.

    My first kiss was in a tree house at my neighbors house. We were eating popsicles and he just swings the question on me. "Kate can I kiss you?" What was I supposed to say? So there it happened. Trrrraaaumatizing!!
