Great song. Reminds me of Dawson’s Creek.
So kissing hey…what is the deal with kissing?
I did some research and basically, no one can pinpoint exactly why we do it. Scientists believe that the fundamental reason for kissing originates from our primate beginnings. Mothers would feed their young by mouth. Gross right? However, this form of feeding creates a bond between the mother and their young.
Fast forward to now, through the power of evolution, kissing how now become affiliated with romance and the like.
Again, scientists believe that kissing not only creates a bond, but it also aids in finding a potential mate. According to experts: “kissing helps transfer critical information…the kissing we associate with romantic courtship may help us to choose a good mate, send chemical signals, and foster long-term relationships. All of this is important in evolution’s ultimate goal—successful procreation.”
Wow, such a clinical summation of kissing. Way to ruin the magic, nerds.
I guess that’s a pretty accurate definition. I mean, if a kiss is bad, the spark usually fails to well, spark.
Ok, I will admit this really weird thing that I do. Ok, here we go…
You know how in movies, when there’s a scene were the protagonists are kissing, and it’s magical and amazing. There’s a crescendo of music and all of a sudden the lighting turns to candlelight and/or moon…and it’s just fuckin’ great, right? Anyway, their lips meet and their eyes close…
Ok, so I don’t do that. I don’t close my eyes. Well, initially I do. But then I don’t…oh god what is wrong with me.
All right, let me explain this. So yes, initially the eyes are closed…but then (I have no idea why), I open my eyes and sort of look to the side. Not the whole time! But they open once or twice. I don’t make it obvious or creepy. It’s not like my eyes are wide open and I’m just intensely gazing at the person on the other side. God no! I just sort of wonder off and look up and away…
Closing your eyes seems way too much. It’s too involved. It’s like succumbing to the kiss you know, and I don’t know, but that’s too much for me.
I’m trying to think back at all the kisses that have happened in my life (because you know, there’s just so many…not) and I can’t remember ever keeping my eyes closed the whole time. I mean, I think the more I like the recipient, the less I open my eyes.
“Why don’t you just succumb to the kiss then, ya freak!?”
I’m trying! I’m actually trying!
I don’t know. Maybe I’m just kissing the wrong people…
Or maybe I just don’t want to succumb to the kiss because I’m an immature idiot.
Or maybe I should just relax and stop thinking too much and just BE in the moment.
Or all of the above.
