First kiss jitters? Niki Naderi tells you how to improve that all important lip-lock.
In preparing to write this article, I first sat around with my girlfriends discussing their first kisses with their significant others, and then talked to the other side of the smooches. Pretty much every story was hysterical. Even the most romantic was still amusing. We’ve all heard about the importance of the very first mouth to mouth contact in a new relationship.
Take a breath. It will be ok. Below I have condensed the results of my painstaking research down to five easy tips that will hopefully help you tune down the freak-out and tune up the make-out.
1. Don’t listen to the voices in your head!
Stop thinking about what will happen if you miss his mouth or if you bonk noses. Just relax. Even if something silly like that does happen, you'll only look back on it and laugh.
2. Let the moment come on its own!
Just because it’s your second or third date and you haven’t kissed yet doesn’t mean you should spend the rest of the night sobbing on your pillow. For a first kiss to be just right you need to feel comfortable and together in that moment.

It’s fine and dandy to get a feel for each other, but if you build this kiss up in your head, it will never live up to your expectations. The more you hide behind your fear, the more pressure you'll put on this one moment in time, and that much emphasis is just no good.
4. No need to get fancy!
Chances are the first kiss with your significant other will not look like something out of a steamy day time soap. I’m sure we’d all love to be able to lock lips with that hunky guy and swirl our tongues about just like the stars do, but for most of us, that is just a dream.
5. Don’t be afraid to take charge!
Ladies, Gents, if you feel that the moment is there and your date is looking in your eyes with that come hither stare, go for it! You have absolutely nothing to lose at this point.
The actual experience of a first kiss is what really makes it perfect. It doesn’t necessarily have to look like something out of the latest
