Step 2: Practice the Kiss

Once you're leaning in, things start to happen quickly. If you are nervous about the actual kiss, why not practice beforehand to hone your technique? An arm or mirror could serve as useful tools to self monitor the feel and look of your kissing style.

Rest assured, THE KISS is coming, but here it is broken down first, step by step so that you know whats going on when you see it at full speed with a partner in the next step.

Here is a head on view of a kiss. I am just practicing here, so it might look a little funny, but once your partner is sitting across from you and your lips meet theirs, it's H, O, T hot.


1. You are in the pre kiss state described in step 1 - your head is tilted, there is lip activity, your eyes are in a soft deep gaze and maybe there is some light physical contact.

You could open or close your eyes, though if you're nervous, closed could help avoid the deer in headlights look of fear. I like to start with mine open and close them just before lip contact.

2. Either you or your partner has shown that they would like to kiss. Start putting the pieces from step 1 together. Lean in and meet your partner halfway. Begin to pucker the lips by bringing them together, pushing them out, and applying just a faint hint of suction on your closed mouth to bring the cheeks slightly in.

Now is a good time to lick your lips if they aren't already moist.

Keep leaning in, remembering to tilt your head until you make contact with your partner's lips.

Remember not to forget about hand placement! A gentle touch to the back of the neck, the shoulders or your partners head is all you need. This can also help in guiding someone into the kiss if they are lost or are having trouble meeting you.

3. Your lips come to a full pucker position. They are soft, but not floppy. They can be fully formed and firm, but certainly not hard. This is an ambiguous state for any solid to be in - but these are your lips were talking about here - they can handle it!

Make contact with your partners lips.

If this is your first kiss, you don't want to linger too long, but you also don't want to just peck them and retreat.

Count "one-one thousand, two-one thousand" in your head before relaxing the pucker in your lips and beginning to pull your head away. You can hold the kiss like this for longer, but after 5 seconds or so should start think about ending this kiss. If you would like to keep kissing after that you can always lean in again and follow up the first kiss with a second, third or fourth kiss.

Remember to breathe through the kiss. It's all right to hold your breath for a short kiss, but for longer ones you are going to have to breathe while you are kissing. Since your mouth is occupied, you are going to have to use your nose. Just breathe normally and continue on with the kiss.

To end the kiss begin to lighten the pressure your lips are applying to your partners' and relax your puckered lips. As your lips relax they will separate and a small amount of air will be sucked into your mouth. This will create the kissing noise, or "smack" that is identified with a kiss.

At this point contact with your partner's lips has ended and its time to start thinking about giving them a little space and time to reflect about what just happened.

4. Move your head back slowly and begin to relax the muscles around your mouth. You can keep your eyes closed for a bit as you revel in the kiss and slowly return to your normal un-extended position.

5. You are now in the post kiss phase and if it was a good kiss, words won't do the feeling justice. If you and your partner liked what just happened you can follow up with more, or just enjoy what the two of you shared. If it was a bad kiss, you can try to make changes and give the kiss another go. If things can't be salvaged at that particular moment, don't force it - take a break and talk about it with your partner and try again after a few minutes or another day.

Guys, love can be found at any age at any time, no matter what. Not allbguysvre about sex, and making out, i have been dating this girl for a month, and i told her we will take the relationship as slow as she wants.

<p>All the comments on this page are absolutely ridiculous. For many reasons. One, love has no specified age. I mean, clearly you won't understand the concept of love until you're in middle school (depends on how quickly you mature). You CAN love someone in 7th/6th/8th grade. The real problem is dating. You're too young at that age to be dating responsibly. You don't know what a real relationship means. You're either going to get pregnant, or something bad will happen because you screwed up while trying to date. A real relationship isn't just sex or kissing. It's not even all about physical contact. Sure, it's an important part of it, but a relationship is knowing your partner's there for you. Knowing that you can tell them anything and that they won't judge you. A real relationship is your partner having respect for you, and vice versa. If it's a real relationship, your partner will NOT talk constantly about wanting to have sex with you. He/she shouldn't talk about it at all. That is for much later in life, if you guys have talked about it and WANT to start a family (providing you're the appropriate age to) It's also a deep intimate connection, so even if you're not in it for the kids, you should wait until you're at least engaged. Though, I'm not judging anyone if you do. But regardless, you should NOT be having sex in middle school, no matter HOW OLD or MATURE you think you are! <br><br>I personally have experienced love in middle school. Not the obsessive crush kind, but a real love for the person that I'm with currently. I know he would do anything for me and I would without a doubt, do anything for him. Relationships aren't all bubbly and giggly and perfect. You take comfort in the fact that they really do love you too. We've talked about marriage before. I want to get married to this man. He's expressed the same feeling to me. <br><br>But you guys do you, I'm just here to tell you what I think ^.^</p>
Thank you it worked wonderful
<p>It sounds really nerve-wrecking, I was really nervous about my first kiss. It was funny because I had no idea what I was doing, but my boyfriend didn't mind. But if you're with the right person it doesn't matter, it will come naturally to you. Trust me. :)</p>
<p>I hope this article helps me haha. I just want to make sure i know what im getting into before i go into it, wish me luck lol.</p>
<p>hey do you know any single guys for me i need a guy that is around 13</p>
<p>Word of advice kid: Stop looking on the internet, TRUST me on this one</p>
Dear Kids in 5th, 6th, and 7th grade,<br>How do you guys even have boyfriends and girlfriends? I'm in 8th grade and I've been single forever. I have no problem with being single...
I've just started high school and have had more exes than I have friends (I'm bisexual) and it's not a good thing. You just haven't met the right person yet :)
I wonder too...
well it is better when u r older so if u breakup u can accept it also i personally think dating and stuff should start at 6th grade <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br>by the way there is someone in my grade that started dating in 3rd grade <br>
Dating means you actually like the person and are doing sexual things with them. So Dating doesn't start until any of that happens. So 6th grade is a no. I was pregnant in 7th grade so all of you just need to stop with thinking dating is the cool thing to do. Dating starts in high school.
and dating is not based off of sex its the meaning of love and respect for that other person
<p>exactally thank you!!</p>
<p>exactally thank you!!</p>
No ur wrong thats not what dating means. Ive been dating the same gut for 3 years and thats been since 6th grade and im in 8th now. And its called DATING
A healthy relationship wouldn't be based purely off of sex. They SHOULD be built off of love, or a mutual attraction for each other. You can go on dates with people and be technically dating them without even kissing or wanting a fully commited relationship. I swear..by 2030 the age for legal consent will be 14 and people will be married by 17-19 as the average age. Common sense is rare these days
People used to marry at 14. You are taking this way out of proportion. Kids will get it when they are older
Dating someone doesn't mean you are &quot;doing sexual things with them.&quot; And boo boo for you that you got pregnant way too early, it's your fault for being stupid.
You were pregnant... In 7th grade? That terrible! I don't know whether to feel bad for you or not.
<p>dont they choose the wrong thing</p>
No, a relationship is having a stronger physical and emotional connection. Dating is just like a &quot;Hey, you seem cool, wanna go to the movies?&quot; type thing. Dating can turn into a relationship, though.
i started dating younger then that lol but I'm in a committed relationship right now we've been together for almost 2 years now :)
Congratulations but me and my girl have been together for 5 years (=
So...yall got together in kindergarten. WHAT IS HAPPENING TO SOCIETY?? I'm not ready for when my children are born into this world. Will I even want to be able to call it a world anymore? Should I even want to bring new life into it?
amen, hallelujah sister! ;) i am in 8th grade and i have had my first kiss and i have dated people before but all the guys in my grade are jerks... that is 29 guys (small school)! THEY ALL SUCK! :D so all you little kids out there... keep your hopes up! 999,999 times out of a million your not going to marry any of the kids you have crushes on in grade school! :) thank god for that statistic!
You call 29 guys a small school?! I have 9 guys in the whole 8th grade!
Well i went frkm a school of over a thousand students (450 per grade) to 32 kids in each grade. It is really small for me!!!
<p>I have no girls in my grade at school. (sigh) the life of a home schooler</p>
I have 18 kids in my grade!
oooh that sucks!
This is the longest list of replies ever.
where do u guys go to school omg thats so little thats how mny people i have in my class
<p>Three years ago I had 8 kids</p>
And, yeah. It ain't like you're gonna marry any of them. It isn't even really a relationship at our age; actually, it's just like dating. Like, really. You can't be in a serious relationship and truly love someone in middle school.
thats a lie u can to if u r like 13 or more as long as u r not really really young so yes! you can not trying to be rude
no honestly you wont love them. trust me. apperently you havent ever felt love.
<p>actually I did. Love is when Christ died on the cross for our sins. By his death we are free. That's what's called love.</p>
<p>Amen </p>
