I really want to kiss my boyfriend but I have never kissed a guy before so I don’t know how to approach him.

Figuring out when to kiss seems like it would be the most natural thing in the world but it can also be very awkward. The best way to gauge whether or not someone is OK for kissing is to ask him/her. But I also know that can be embarrassing.

The fact that he has not kissed you yet may be a sign he is afraid, nervous or not ready to start kissing. Kissing can also create other physical sexual feelings that he may not be ready for or does not know how to control. If this is the case, you should wait until he is ready.

Part of being in a relationship is talking to your partner and telling them what you want/need. If you are ready for kissing, you should be secure enough in your relationship to be able to tell him you wouldn’t mind a smooch.

I wonder if you two have any physical contact? If you two hug or hold hands, you can start by kissing him on the cheek to see how he reacts. That may give him enough of the hint that you want to start kissing.

Just remember it is better when you both want to be kissing. If he is not ready, it may not be very romantic and this is your first kiss after all.

Good Luck!
Allie
