Everyone in the world can be divided into two camps: those who have been kissed, and those who have not. Those who have been kissed can tell you everything about the experience - who it was with, where it happened, how it felt - while those who have not are still riddled with questions, namely who it will be with, where it will happen and how it will feel. Whether you've been kissed a million times or not at all, there are certain guidelines that will make any kiss amazing, and following them will lead to fantastic first kisses with any lucky partner.

Keep It Quiet

This goes for the setting, and yourselves! A first kiss is a private affair, and it should happen in a private setting. Don't waste this special moment in front of an audience, instead find someplace secluded and quiet so that you both can concentrate on each other. While you are concentrating, remember that no loud theatrics are needed, so keep yourself quiet and controlled as well.

Keep It Short and Sweet

A first kiss should always feel like a preview of more kisses to come. Don't let a first kiss last for hours, and don't attempt to pack all of your feelings into one long-lasting kiss. Instead, keep it short and sweet and you're partner will be dying for more.

Keep It Comfortable

In films it may seem like a first kiss always follows a monumental announcement of love and a long period of staring into each other's eyes. In real life this could be totally embarrassing. If you suspect a first kiss is looming, keep it comfortable and don't allow any grand gestures to get in the way.

Keep It Clean

No, this doesn't mean French kissing is barred, it means that you should both have clean teeth, breath and lips for a great first kiss. Brush your teeth before your date, and immediately after you eat chew a breath mint or some flavoured gum. Apply a slick of lip balm and you should be all set. Just don't continue to chew on mints or gum because you certainly don't want any obstacles in your mouth during your first kiss.

Keep It Choreographed

When couples have been together for a while their kissing becomes choreographed. One head goes left, one head goes right (ie. in opposite directions), eyes close, lips open and kiss is successful. For a first kiss these variables are all up in the air and it can be hard to figure out what you should be doing and when. Take your cue from whichever partner initiates the kiss. If you are going in for the kill, tilt your head to one side. If you realise your partner is starting things off, tilt your head to the opposite side from which (s)he is tilting. Close your eyes during every first kiss, and decide in advance whether you are willing to open your mouth or not. Then stop thinking and enjoy it!

First kisses are exciting. Whether it is your first kiss ever or your first kiss with a new partner, there are bound to be butterflies in your stomach and fireworks in your head. Keeping your first kiss short and sweet will make your partner beg for more, and if you play your cards right that is exactly what you both will get.
