Wanna perfect your French kissing technique, or just want the basics on how to kiss for the first time? Follow these kissing tips the next time you’re ready to smooch.
1. Find the Right Time to Kiss
The best time for a first kiss is when you’re alone, there’s a pause in the conversation and you’re both looking into each other’s eyes. Help make this moment happen by finding a way to get away from the crowd, standing or sitting close to your partner, making eye contact and letting the convo come to a natural breaking point. You’ll both know when the moment is right.
2. Don’t Obsess About Your Breath
3. Start With Your Lips
The first thing that comes to mind when you think about french kissing is tongue, but that shouldn’t come right away – you’ll have to ease into it. Start just by lightly kissing their lips (either their top lip, their bottom lip or both) with yours.
4. Don’t Make Your Tongue the Star of the Show
5. Use Your Hands Wisely
6. Don’t Forget to Breathe
7. Mix It Up
8. When In Doubt, Follow Their Lead
You don’t need to be an expert on kissing to share a great kiss. If you’re not sure what to do, just let your partner take over and go with the flow. As long as the two of you like each other and are concentrating on the magic of the moment, it’ll go great.
9. It’s Okay to Laugh
10. Know When to End It
If this is your first time kissing this person, keep things brief. There’ll be plenty more chances to kiss, and you want to leave them dying to lock lips with you the next time.
