Do you remember your first kiss?
Butterflies swarm in your stomach, your heart is beating 10 to a dozen and your lips are plumped and ready, it is happening… Your first kiss
We have a Hollywood depiction on how the first kiss should go…
- Stare deeply into eachothers eyes
- Blush under your partners gaze
- Give in to the lustful desire and lean in
- Caress her face and slide your hand in her hair
- Pull her in
- Take a moment
- Then kiss them
I don’t know about you but on emergence of my first kiss it was going swimmingly, I was a temple of nerves and so passionately in ‘love’ or so I thought. But my first kiss did NOT live up to the expectation.
It went a little something like this…
Walking under the stars with my significant other, it’s started well, the breeze was poignant and crisp and I was infused with life and thrills… It was going to happen…I was going to have my first kiss. We sat on a patch of grass in silence for a while cringing at the awkward cloud of expectation hovering above us.
He made his move.
I don’t know what happened but we collided. That typical cliche motion where our heads were conquers in a conquer match. But we brushed it off, he kissed me and our teeth knocked on eachothers (he told me he was a good kisser!) I laughed and carried on. He pulled away and put his hands on his head. ” can I try again?” I was so confused but agreed as I wanted to compensate this kiss.
Again, he leaned it we kissed but the mood was already broken. Instead of an array of fireworks that is meant to happen I got a feeble party popper that struggled to explode. I wasn’t disappointed just disillusioned was this the way kissing was?
P.s – I’ve had a 10/10 kiss before which makes me look back and disregard my first kiss as even a kiss 😭
