My best kiss is permanently emblazoned on my mind. We were both sixteen, and he stood 5'6" to my 5'10", but it didn't matter because the moment was just right. It was Valentine's Day and he had given me one single red rose. I thought I would melt. He was only the second boy I'd ever kissed and we broke up one week later, but to my teenage mind our kiss spelled l-o-v-e. It was soft and sweet and somewhat tentative. Truly inspired kisses like that are magical moments that occur when the ambiance, sexual tension, anticipation and (hopefully) love combine perfectly. As you page through your memory, can you remember one specific kiss that really stood out? We asked iVillagers to share their "best kiss" stories with us, and they sent us these touching and toe-tingling accounts. Get ready to sigh, cry -- and learn some great kissing tips.
First Loves and First Kisses
One night when I was home by myself, a friend I was madly infatuated with came over to visit. We were sitting in the living room with no lights on, just a candle. He leaned over and said, "You know you really have to watch out when the candle goes out." Then he blew out the candle and leaned over to kiss me. Our first kiss. Thank God for memories!
My best kiss was my first kiss with my first love. We were both nervous and I was pretty sure I was going to back out. He looked at me, told me to close my eyes, open my hand and trust him. He pulled me close and kissed me. The kiss was so innocent, sweet and electrifying. That was the best and most unforgettable kiss.
