Freshen your breath
If you have bad breath, It doesn’t matter how confident you are, or how great a kisser. Brush your teeth beforehand if you can, or at the very least pop a breath mint.
Find reasons to touch the person during the date—tap their forearm, brush a hair out of their eyes, take their hand. If they’re receptive to your touch, you’ll feel more confident about attempting a kiss later.
Pick a private spot
Pick a private spot. Kissing someone can be anxiety-provoking enough without having an audience.
Touch their face
As you lean in for a kiss, touch the person’s chin or cheek. This makes your intentions clear, and gives them one more out. If they begin to close their eyes, they’re waving you in.
Begin kissing your partner, paying attention to the clues they are sending. Progressively heavy breathing, parting lips, and tongue action mean that they are really into the kiss—so continue with confidence!
