Before anyone says anything about the topic for this post – I am a romance writer so this is the sort of tough and challenging research I have to do. *sigh*
I am in the middle of my current project and bored with writing the same old kiss so I thought to myself; there MUST be other types of kisses out there.
Are all you romance writing kissing fans ready?
Here we go.
- Forehead kisses. Best served with a comforting hug.
- Tip of the nose kisses. Delicate and usually accompanied with some heartfelt words.
- Morning kisses. These go well with messy hair, sleepy smiles and pressing the snooze button on your alarm.
- Stolen kisses. Quick, spontaneous and while the world isn’t watching.
- First kisses. Add in some nose bumping, first kiss nerves, lock-in eyes and two galloping hearts.
- Kisses that travel down your neck. Best served after a takeaway, a good film and some romantic whispering.
- Goodbye kisses. These can be split into two; the quick peck before hurrying out of the door or the full on tearful snog. For the latter these are best accompanied with hands that are clinging onto each other.
- Friendship kisses. Air kisses or cheek kisses.
- The first time they say ‘I love you’ kiss. Special kiss alert because you didn’t expect them to confess their love for you. Best accompanied with a chest full of fluttering doves, jelly legs and a gasp of, ‘really?’
- Drunken kisses. Best served with some uncontrollable giggles, a bit of moonlight, a shared tray of chips and maybe a hiccup or two.
- Unexpected kisses. Usually occur mid-sentence and are the culmination of a lengthy period consisting of lustful gazes and long silences.
- Laughing kisses. Where you both start laughing halfway through and then try to carry on with the kiss.
- Earlobe kisses. Gentle nibbling at ears.
- Hand kisses. Best served during a romantic walk with a lot of hand holding.
- Empty kisses. Heartbreaking. This is when one party isn’t kissing back and there’s this horrible sense that they don’t care anymore.
- Wrist kisses. Lips pressed into your wrist and eyes focused on you.
- Breathless kisses. Best accompanied with some gasping for air at the end, a bit of staggering about and two shocked faces.
- Break up kisses. Add in wet eyes, thumbs wiping cheeks and one whispering, ‘I can’t go on like this…it’s for the best.’
- Cinema kisses. Best served in the glow from the cinema screen and with a giant bucket of popcorn wedged between you.
- Moonlit kisses. These occur during a romantic evening walk where you both gaze up at the stars, point out a few star constellations and when you turn back to each other you start to kiss.
- Kisses of desperate urgency. Face cupping is essential and so too are heaving chests and forehead pressing.
- Apology kisses. These are best served with a bunch of flowers, some heartfelt words and glistening eyes.
- The Notebook film kiss. This passionate kiss is best served in a torrential downpour. Face cupping is an essential. Clothes must be soaking wet.
- The Gone With The Wind film kiss. Best served in a passionate embrace with two people who have been engaging in a love-hate relationship. Sizzling chemistry is essential.
- An Officer and a Gentleman film kiss. One party is swept off their feet by the other.
Right, I am going to lie down in a darkened room with my electric fan.
