So what is the right age that a boy should have his first kiss? I wish it were a little clearer but we all know that everyone is different. Maturity hits people at different points in their life. A boy may have his first kiss on the lips as early as elementary school. There is a difference between that and a first real kiss. His first real kiss should be when he is older.
I feel like now there are so many expectations of boys and girls at a younger age than when I was growing up. Kids in general seem to be growing up a lot quicker. So what was my normal growing up may have changed a little bit. I don’t think I had my first real kiss until I was in the 8th or 9th grade.
I’m sure we were playing spin the bottle or seven minutes in heaven. Do kids still play that? I think the older you are, the more you understand the feelings that you have. Just because your friends are doing it and everyone on tv is doing it, doesn’t necessarily mean that you are ready for yours. It’s always good to really know the girl that you are going to be sharing your first kiss with.
Just kissing someone just because is really a disappointment. Take it from me. I honestly don’t remember who my first kiss was because it was someone who didn’t mean anything to me. I think it’s so cute when people can remember where they were, what they were doing and who their first kiss was with. Just don’t put a lot of pressure on yourself. It will happen when it happens.
Just because all of your friends have had their first kiss, doesn’t mean that you’re behind. If you make it into a competition, it won’t mean that much to you. And your first time, you probably won’t be that good at it. Don’t take it to heart. Practice makes perfect! You don’t want to be too pushy. Just remember to respect her and the boundaries that she sets.
And this might sound crazy, but if you have questions about anything, that’s what your parents are here for. You might be scared to at first, but they will be so happy that you can to them with questions. They may surprise you with the advice that they give. It may turn into the whole birds and bees talk but you are heading in that direction so just sit and listen. I know it’s hard to believe, but they were young once too!
