There’s not much worse than an awful first kiss. Knowing how to read first kiss red flags can help you avoid the duds so you can find the studs.
I’ll be the first to dismiss a relationship based on a terrible first kiss. Don’t get me wrong, some weird first kisses can turn into great relationships but that’s not always the case. In some instances, there are some serious first kiss red flags you just can’t ignore.
You can easily tell if you have chemistry based on that first kiss. And that means if things are already going south, you shouldn’t waste your time trying. Too many people give in and let someone come back time and time again even though they knew from the very start they should’ve just cut things off.
The first kiss can reveal an awful lot about a person
I know you might think it’s shallow to duck out after just a single kiss. How can you possibly know them well enough to determine if they’d make a bad partner? But the thing is, if you know what to look for, you’ll find a lot of red flags hidden in that first kiss.
First kiss red flags to keep a lookout for
You’ve probably had a bad first kiss or two. It’s just inevitable if you’re in the dating game. That being said, you have to learn to read between the lines – or the lips – in order to figure out if it’s just a bad kisser, or something worse.
Don’t just automatically assume that a bad kisser will be a bad partner. There are very specific things to keep a lookout for that can help you determine if it’s just a nervous kiss or one of the major first kiss red flags. Here’s what you should keep an eye out for.
#1 Too much eagerness. It’s one thing to be excited about someone and it’s another to be super eager to kiss someone. I mean, yeah we all get that rush of emotion right before the kiss but if they’re trying multiple times to kiss you or are going nuts about it, something is off.
They shouldn’t be THAT stoked to kiss you. It could mean they just want to get some and it could also mean they’re so inexperienced this is their first kiss. And while there’s nothing wrong with that, you may want someone who actually knows what they’re doing.
