I know why men do it. They think it’s courteous. And yes, it is courteous, but seriously, I’m not looking for someone to have a tea party with.
I like when men steal kisses.
When they go in for the kill.
When a man asks, it just ruins it for me.
What am I supposed to say, “Umm, okay?” or “No, sorry… I uh… don’t feel like it?”
I think I speak for all women when I say, please don’t make us have to spell out rejection for you!
When you ask for a kiss and we don’t want to kiss you, it’s awkward.
If we do want to kiss you, you kill the spontaneity of the moment.
I just feel like telling all those men, “Damn it! Make like Nike and just do it!”
See, here’s why.
If you ask, we think you’re cute for asking.
We’re thinking, what a nice guy.
He’s so sweet.
Are those the adjectives you want to describe you?
Nice, cute, sweet?
If you just go in for the kill, you won’t get those adjectives.
Maybe she’ll be talking about the kiss for days….
She’ll be relaying it to friends…
She’ll think your kiss could rival a movie kiss…
She’ll describe it (or you) not as sweet, nice and cute, but
hot, intense, smooth, unforgettable…
Oh, this kiss comes to mind, young Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio in Romeo and Juliet.
So go ahead, steal that kiss.
You may get the cheek dodge, but at least she can say you tried and took the risk!
Maybe I got this email from a reader which inspired this post:
Hey i just had a quick question. Alright i think this girl likes me and i want to “make a move”. We play wrestle every now and then and like when i pin her arms behinde her head and she doesnt
really fight back. i was wondering, how do i make a move on her while wrestling?
When she doesn’t fight back… and there’s that moment of possibility… make sure you look at her straight in the eyes…. give her that “I want you” look. Pay attention to how she responds. A smile or a return of that “I want you” look is a sign to just KISS her. Haha, and make it a HOT kiss! Cradle her head in your hands. Make it a passionate kiss to rival any movie kiss. EVERY GIRL wants to be kissed passionately. Take control. Let her know she’s being “man-handled!”
If she starts wrestling again or gets uncomfortable when you give her the “look,” or turns her head and can’t meet your gaze, then you know it’s a no-go.
Hope that helps!
Or maybe I talked to my high school sweetheart last night and we reminisced about our first kiss in detail. Which, btw, he didn’t ask for. Let’s just say I remember turning into butter.
