Dating a Bad Kisser

Have You Ever Dated a Bad Kisser?

Bad kisser, good guy. What a tragic dating case. A Très community member recently shared her firstmouthhand experience with not-so-sexy slobbering. She writes:

We started out talking and hanging out all night and really hit it off but when he kissed me, it was awful, slobber all over my face. I would have to take hiatuses to wipe off his saliva.

Blegh! Still, she's holding out hope that her crush is not a lost cause. Can you relate?

What girl hasn't, really? HAHA. My first REAL boyfriend was a very sweet guy who had actually been crushing on me for over a year. I was aware that he liked me...a lot, but the attraction on my side just wasn't there. One day, I decided to give this guy a try and decided to start going out with him. Since he was like 4 years my senior, I thought he'd be a little bit more "suave" with his kissing but, OMG. The first time he kissed me, which was around 15 minutes, he left my mouth all blotchy and purple! He was literally sucking the circulation out of me. He was way too passionate and slobbery. Since he was also pretty much the first guy I really kissed (I had only "pecked" before him) I was really horrified with kissing. I thought it wasn't that fun. We only lasted about a month. He was a really sweet guy but, to top it all off, he even had the nerve to say that I "didn't know how to kiss." Yes, I didn't have much experience but even then I could definitely tell his kissing wasn't normal!

Yes and it was so awkward! His mouth went rigid and his lips would tremble...he was the only bad kisser I've dated, thankfully we didn't date for very long.

I feel so bad for everyone!! haha. I've only kissed one bad kisser so I think I'm pretty lucky. But, my best friend on the other hand had a guy completely open his mouth as wide as he could to try to kiss her. Awkward!!!

Nah, kissing is too important to me. Must be good, or at the least mildly retrainable. Had a few guys overdo it (tongue, spit, the works), had one guy who liked to bite WAY too hard (leaving bruises and other dubious marks), and then one AMAZING kisser who turned out to be a complete ass. Can't really win. Oh, also can't stand it if he tastes of old coffee/cigarettes/beer, on top of being a bad kisser. It's gross, and if you KNOW you taste like that, DON'T try to kiss me.

My very first boyfriend was a horrible kisser ... and even later in life when we tried to get back together he was still horrific. I think it was one of the reasons why I didn't feel so bad about not being able to rekindle the romance.

I cant be with a guy who don't know how to gave at least a good kiss. Good kisser could turn into a great one. But those kisser who wants to bath you with their saliva is hopeless for me.

I've dated a few bad kissers! Oh well, kiss a few frogs... I've found my prince now. :)

I think most guys are pretty easy to "re-train" (if you will) on how to kiss if you aren't a fan of their style...if you tell them how you like to be kissed they are usually pretty receptive.

I had a few encounters with an older guy... we're talking 16 years my senior... and wow, what a terrible kisser! I was kind of infatuated with him though, so I almost thought it was 'cute' but of course when the fling ended I was relieved I didn't have to put up with his terrible smooches anymore. He would just open his mouth really wide, and would kind of keep it open over my mouth. It's hard to explain, but there was no tongue action really, not even kissing really, just like an open mouth... bizarre.

Yeah, and I married him. He's gotten better.

One guy literally made me gag and covered me with spit. I dated a guy who kissed like a goldfish and another one who couldn't stand even a tiny bit of tongue. One was too tonguey but he toned it down a lot as our relationship progressed. One was too tonguey and actually made a comment about the way I was kissing. Best kisser ever in the history of kissing turned out to be the lamest in bed. I think most can be taught but some are just lost causes.

Yes, and I felt as though I was kissing a hose. Thankfully, it ended.

He sucked on my lips so hard, and were biting them almost constantly. Basically he was doing everything that is sexy to do once in a while he did all the time. It was so bad, my lip started bleeding. What a turn off!

The last guy I dated (same time I just started dating my husband too at that time). He basically gave me tongue bath all over my face, then he actually preferred kissing that way to the point, HE was the one giving me instruction to do the same thing. Well, I quit dating him after that, because who gave direction for a facial tongue my hub-then potential guy-asked me to stop seeing other men.

Yes, but the caveat was that it was his first kiss. However, he was a quick-study, and became a dreamy kisser.

Ugh, yes unfortunately. It didn't last very long. A grown man should know how!

Yikes, yeah. But in my opinion kissing its not so much matter of technique as its emotion. One of the first guys i dated injected about a pound of saliva into my mouth, it wasn't so sensual experience.

Yup, my ex would just limply lay his tongue in my mouth and barely twitch it. It was gross.

Yeah, what lucky girl hasn't? I think there is always hope. If you are together long enough you can teach him by saying exactly what you want, "I like when you lightly kiss my bottom lip." If he is a real winner (personality and sex wise) I don't think bad kissing would stop me from being with him. After being together for a while make outs happen less often anyways.

Haha, yeah...but he was such a boring dude, his bad kissing just made it that much easier to break it off with him...
