My First Kiss eReader Giveaway

October 1, 2012 § 70 Comments

Was your first kiss romance novel worthy?  Mine sure wasn’t.  My first kiss was romance-free and happened at summer camp when I was thirteen years old.  A boy I wasn’t particularly attracted to and I were having one heck of an awkward conversation one evening during the down-time we campers enjoyed between dinner and lights out.  We were in the grassy common area between the bunks with a lot of other chatty kids.  The late summer sun was setting, the crickets were chirping, and we were surrounded by lush green mountains.  The scene had romantic potential but the boy was not for me.  I wasn’t feeling amorous and I know I was not wearing a kiss me facial expression, so when he, without warning, grabbed me and stuck his pokey little tongue in my mouth I froze in shock.

After about ten seconds of his mouth mashed on mine he stopped as suddenly as he had started.  He didn’t say a word to me before he turned away and sauntered over to where his friends stood across the lawn.  He grinned while they high-fived him and clapped him on the back.  It was ghastly.  That sexual assault of a kiss might have been slightly less odious if it had been the result of his mad passion for me, but that was clearly not the case – it was immediately obvious that the kiss had been the result of some kind of dare.  We never spoke again.

To make matters worse, my name was linked to his for the rest of the summer.  Fellow campers with wiggling eyebrows continually asked me how things were going with him as though we were an item.  Any denial from me resulted in relentless teasing, so I tried hard to ignore them.  Thank goodness none of the kids at that camp were from my hometown and I was able to leave it all behind when I went home at the end of August.  It wasn’t the experience I would have picked for my first kiss, but I wasn’t given a choice in the matter.

How about you?  Was your first kiss dreamy or ghastly?  Was it delivered with perfect technique or too slobbery?  Was it romantic or a horror show?  Leave a comment and share your first kiss experience!  Doing so will enter you for a chance to win the Romance in Real Life My First Kiss eReader Giveaway!

    My first kiss was when I was in junior high school. I had this super crush on this boy who lived down the street from my house. His name was Greg. He was the most handsomest boy in the world. He had dark brown, chocolaty eyes and coal black hair. I rode on his handlebar from his house to mine one day. I was joyously thrilled to be so close to him. After I hopped down from his handlebar, I turned to thank him for my rides, and then it happened. He leaned over and gave me a kiss on me lips. I know now that it was not a truly passionate kiss since it only involved lips, but it was truly a joyous kiss and will remain in my heart forever. Not long after “the kiss” he moved away. He will always remain my first love.

    My first kiss was ghastly. I was kissed by my brother’s friend who I was not attracted to at all. I ended up at his house one day after school while I was waiting for my brother and he jumped at me. It was an uncomfortable few minutes. My brother showed up and we left. I made sure I was never alone with him again.

  • Rebekah James says:

    my first kiss was at 14 he took me in his arms kissed me I raised my leg ..just likeyou see on the movies. …I wanted it to be”picture” perfect lol

  • Ashley DeGroot says:

    I honestly can’t remember my first kiss. I think I was not worth it (which is probably why I can’t remember it). But I do love to read about everyone’s first kiss, even if mine wasn’t worth it. 🙂

  • Lindsay Knox says:

    I dont remember my first kiss. I do remember my worst though haha. He was a handsome man in his 20’s and when he went to kiss me he thrust his tongue in my mouth and swirled it around in a circle really fast. Needless to say there was no more dates after that.

  • Angelia S says:

    My first kiss was with a guy that was 4yrs older then me. I thought it was a good kiss at the time but when i think about it now it wasn’t all that and neither was he…lol.

  • Kathy Regan says:

    My first kiss was when I was 15, with an older boy who was very attractive but with whom I had nothing in common with. The best kiss was with my neighbor’s son a year later, who was younger than me, and I always ignored. I didn’t ignore him after that! He moved away though, and now I am married to my best friend, who’s kisses are even better because I know how much he loves me!

  • My first kiss was kind of a let down considering all the fantasies I had dreamed it would be.I was 12 and just knew i was now in love I had found the boy I would love forever. Turns out I was not that impressed when he quickly mashed his lips on mine his mouth was closed as was mine and he turned away as soon as he was done like he was glad that it was over and went into the classroom.I could have been ok with that but while I was busy writing my name and his across my notebook the next day he was writing his name in a heart on the blackboard with another girls. I was so upset that after class I walked up to him and punched him in the mouth. Never talked to him again.

  • Mickey S says:

    I can’t remember my first kiss – must have been very memorable!!

  • Justine says:

    My first kiss was wet. Not slobbery, but wet. Yup.

  • Sharon says:

    My first kiss was from the boy who would eventually become my husband one day (years later). It was swoon worthy and of course I felt right then and there I was in love. Turns out I was!!!

  • nancy says:

    My first kiss happened while playing ‘spin the bottle’ in the 7th grade. It was sloppy , wet and not good ….but i will never forget it !!

  • Chris says:

    “Sweet 16 and never been kissed.” That was me. But it was time to stick the cake at my 16th Birthday party. I was only now beginning to look “girlish”, and when all my friends had been finding out about first kisses (and more) I’d been the one the guys looked on as a tomboy. But tonight things would change. I chose the guy whom I knew had the most experience. He was good-looking and a charmer. Best of all, he’d come to my party date-less. He agreed to stick the cake with me, and there, before a whole room-full of people, I experienced my first kiss. I didn’t know what to expect. But Paul knew just what to do. His lips were firm, yet gentle, making me feel pretty and so special. I don;t know how long it lasted, but when we drew apart, I felt as though I was floating. I never forgot it, and always after compared others to that kiss. Few stacked up.

  • Shal says:

    My first kiss was….a mouthful. I was 19, had a crush on my friend’s friend. He helped me with my homework and spent a lot of time with me so I though he felt the same way. My friend told me to go for it, so 1 day we were playing cards, he said if I lost I owe him a kiss. Stupid me agreed. Needless to say, I lost. When our lips touch it wasn’t bad but then his tongue invaded my mouth…it was all over & big. i couldn’t breathe..for all the wrong reasons. After the horrible kiss he told me he wasn’t looking for a relationship.

  • Mirandy says:

    I was 16, and cruising down the highway with my first ‘real’ boyfriend who, I now shudder and wonder WHAT he was thinking, was 21 and in college. He was driving and I had my arm around him – we kept making eye contact that was full of intensity – and then finally, our lips touched… all this, at 65 miles per hour. Fortunately, he took the next exit so the second kiss wouldn’t be *quite* as dangerous.

    The relationship ended a few months later, and I haven’t seen him in twenty years, which is fine by me!

    Ew. Seriously, what WAS he thinking??

  • amhocking says:

    As a painfully shy kid, it’s probably no wonder that I vividly remember one day during recess in the third grade, a classmate running up to me from out of nowhere and pecking me on the cheek. I remember feeling mortified and him actually giving me a smug look as I stood there speechless. This infuriated me further, so I returned his look with one that I sincerely hoped he’d interpret as disgust. Then I ran to tell my teacher what had transpired on our once carefree playground. Oddly enough, as upsetting as “Smug Boy’s” unsolicited advance was, I was equally upset that the boy in my class who I secretly had a crush on wasn’t the one with the courage (or perhaps the speed?) be my first kiss. My third-grade crush and I have long since made peace with one another, as our crush was revealed to be mutual all the way through high school.

  • Deb G. says:

    My first kiss must have been with my best friend at the time, because we practiced making out…a lot…between 6th and 8th grade. I remember much more clearly the first time he (gasp!) went for the chest grab – that was far less exciting than I had envisioned it to be.

  • Judith says:

    Awkward and embarrassing. My first kiss was during summer vacation in Mexico. A relative asked for a kiss, I was ready for a kiss on the cheek and was instead pecked on the lips. Apparently my mother’s side of the family has that custom. I was really embarrassed and left as politely as I could. I’ve always been shy and must have been a blushing red when I left.

  • muchy says:

    my first kiss was gross. I didn’t know how to do it so when he asked for it i just didn’t reply. I had finished my lessons so we decided to hang out in a really awkward class. So here we are chatting then he asks me again for the kiss. His friend was teasing him so i had to be mother duck to the rescue. I told him i wasn’t all that and he insisted so he leaned in and it happened. I admit it he was calm probably enjoying himself while i closed my eyes dying for relief. He left his gross saliva on my lips. When i think of it i become angry. I didn’t like him at all!
