I enjoy kissing. It is indeed very nice. Well… I have had bad kisses, but that’s not the topic of this discussion.
I have occasionally found myself in situations where I don’t really know what the kiss means. It’s the whole “what happens next” issue. I mean, you’re hanging out with someone, you’re having fun, you make out a bit… and then what? Does this give you the access for more making out later? Or is it a “we’re just having a bit of fun thing”? … Or do you want to continue the physical bits? I enjoy kissing, but some situations can be a bit ambiguous.
I mean, sometimes all you want to do is just have someone to make out with for a bit. I definitely know a couple of guys where we like making out, but we don’t expect any sort of relationship to come out of it or anything. It takes a bit of figuring things out to get to that stage though — there has to be understanding on both sides.. and well, it’s easy for things to get fuzzy. But there’s also the times when it just sort of happens… Where kissing is sort of an appropriate response to the situation. What the hell do you do after that? This could lead to a relationship, a definite sign that the parties are interested… Or it could just be a “moment” thing, and once it’s done it’s done (even if there is mild interest between the parties). And there’s the times when you’re drunk. I will definitely admit that I tend to get a bit more flirty and personable when I’m drunk. And this has lead to more than one make out sessions.
I don’t like leading people on, or being led on myself… but making out is just fun. And I have been in the position where I didn’t want anything else afterward but the other person did… It is indeed awkward. But the period of time after making out with someone.. when you’re trying to figure things out, read into the situation.. it can definitely be frustrating.
Anybody have any suggestions for this post-kiss confusion? Or any great kissing anecdotes? Kiss and tell.
