You don’t have to be aggressive in order to show how much you’re enjoying the make-out session. One of the biggest mistakes people can make while kissing is using their tongue as their only tool. You can show your affection in other ways. It’s fine to french, but don’t go overboard.
1. TOO MUCH TONGUE
A kiss can be passionate without jamming your tongue down each other’s throats. You don’t have to be aggressive in order to show how much you’re enjoying the make-out session. One of the biggest mistakes people can make while kissing is using their tongue as their only tool. You can show your affection in other ways. It’s fine to french, but don’t go overboard.
2. SAME OLD SAME OLD
You don’t want to get stuck in a rut. If you’ve been kissing the same person for years, you need to try new things. Variety is the spice of life, after all. Switch up your rhythm, bite his lip, or kiss him in a new location. Do anything that will make your make-outs feel fresh.
3. ALL DRIED UP
The best kisses involve lips that are soft and smooth. You don’t want flakiness to ruin the moment. Chapstick is of the utmost importance when you’re in a relationship. You want him to want to kiss you. If your lips are too dry, neither of you will feel like locking lips.
4. TOO HANDSY
It’s difficult to focus on his kiss when his hands are distracting you. If you’re not ready for him to go to a certain length, you have to tell him. A kiss can go from sweet to sour with a few unwanted touches. Make sure that you’re both on the same page. If he doesn’t know how far you’re willing to go, he’s going to test it for himself. It’s better for you two to talk it out first.
5. NOT HANDSY ENOUGH
Your mouths aren’t the only important part of kissing. If his hands are at his sides the entire night, you’ll wonder how much he likes you. He can push back a piece of your hair, grasp your waist, or hold you close. You can place your hands on his chest, run your hands through his hair, or place them on the back of his neck. There are plenty of ways to feel more connected.
6. NO AIR
Forgetting to breathe is never a good thing. You have to know your limits. When it’s time for you to come up for air, don’t be afraid to do so. Trust me, your man will understand that you need to breathe. It’s better to pause for a moment than to lose consciousness.
7. BAD BREATH
Buy gum or invest in breath mints. You want to make sure that you’re smelling icy fresh before you make your mate come closer. You should also watch what you eat if you know you’re about to head over to your boy’s house. You don’t want to load up on garlic when kissing is in the cards.
