A first kiss can be a really exciting thing so it is important to know how to kiss a girl for the first time. While a lot of first kiss experiences and stories can be really awkward and silly, it’s just all part of growing up. However, there are ways to avoid the awkward scenes and make the experience a whole lot better, for both you and the girl you like.
First of all, and probably most obvious of all, make sure you know she likes you! Don’t run up to a girl that you have a crush on and kiss her if you’ve never talked to her. If you two have been going out for a while, then it should be pretty obvious if things have been going well. If she’s flirty, touches you a lot, and seems happy to be around you, then she obviously likes you, and a kiss could be the right thing to do.
So if she’s giving off the right feelings, and you know she likes you, next is to determine the right time to give her a kiss. Sometimes, it’s obvious – you will be saying goodnight or goodbye for the day. She could look right into your eyes, and maybe get a little closer to you. If this happens, move your face in close to hers, slowly. If she doesn’t back away and moves towards you, it probably means that she wants a kiss.
When the kiss happens, make sure it’s as natural as possible. Don’t make it too weak, but more importantly, don’t add a lot of pressure to it. You don’t want your first kiss to be too hard. These kind of kisses are okay and even fun later in a relationship, but you don’t want to scare a girl away by being too aggressive.
Another very important thing to keep in mind is not to add too much tongue. If the girl initiates it, then you can do it back, but don’t try to force your tongue into her mouth during your first kiss. This could scare her off. While french kissing’s very fun and acceptable later in a relationship, it could make the girl think you’re too aggressive.
Make the first kiss simple, plain, and gentle. This may sound boring, but if your first kiss is with a girl you really like, then the excitement will be enough.
Another tip – make sure, if you’re anticipating a kiss, to have good breath! If the kiss takes place after a date where you guys got dinner, then freshen your breath. Try a pack of gum, or mints. Having bad breath when you’re trying to kiss someone can be really embarrassing and gross.
A first kiss is a big moment, so make sure you can do everything you can to make it great. However, don’t try too hard or over think things – this can make the experience seem awkward and forced. Also, remember that if it turns out bad, not to beat yourself up – awkward moments are all part of being a teenager!
