The Thought of Kissing Doesn't Gross You Out

Putting your mouth on someone else's mouth is totally weird, but it can also be a magical experience. If you're prepared to swap spit (and germs) with someone in exchange for a special moment, you may be ready to go for it.


You've Thought About It for a While

If it's been on your mind for a long time, chances are you're mentally prepared for your first kiss. Nothing is worse than being caught off-guard for a yucky first experience.

You Just Feel Ready

Deep down, if you feel ready, you probably are! No one knows you better than yourself, so it's really up to you to decide how you feel about the situation. Remember, getting butterflies is totally normal. Listen to your gut and do what's most comfortable for you.
