Dear Poll: Do You Kiss With Your Eyes Open?

I am a huge advocate of kissing. I feel like kissing is the most intimate thing you can do with your significant other. There are many different ways to kiss but when you lean in for a smooch, is it second nature for you to close your eyes? I think it is for most people, but there's something very special about making eye contact with the person you're locking lips with — it makes the kiss all the more deep and sensual. Do you agree? Ladies, what I want to know is, do you like to kiss your beau with your eyes open or closed?

closed, but if I'm kissing other places I like to glance at him to see his expression. and sometimes i accidentally open my eyes, and i open my eyes if it's just a peck.

Closed because it's more passionate, but if i'm in a playful mood then open and me and my bf will just make fun of each other. =)

i automatically close mine but sometimes i take a peek to see if his are open or just to look at him. once i caught him looking away at something else like he wasn't really thinking about it haha. i think only once have we ever both kissed with our eyes open looking into each others. it's ok i guess, different really.

i find open-eyes weird. i have dated two guys who like to have their eyes open, so i would sometimes open my eyes and take a peek and i'd see a pair of eyes staring at me. it kinda freaks me out! so i just keep my eyes shut.

I do both. It's automatic for me to kiss with my eyes closed, but I can't help but take secret little peaks sometimes. And occasionally, locking eyes while locking lips is completely sexy.

For the most part I kiss with my eyes closed...sometimes, though, I kiss with them open too :)

Closed, always!! I can't even imagine kissing someone with eyes open, specially if his were too, yikes!

Both, but mostly with eyes closed. It seems more romantic to me that way. But, occasionally I open my eyes to look at my sweetie, because he's so beautiful.

it all depends if its a passionate kiss then closed, and if its just a little kiss then they are open! :)

I think it really depends on where/when you're kissing. Though I generally close my eyes when I kiss him on the lips, if only so I don't go all cross-eyed!

I do both. It depends on the moment but sometimes I just like to see him while I have that great feeling

I voted closed, but both really. We can start with our eyes open, and I like it, but then both our eyes just close after a bit! Which is super-enjoyable too!

If hubby and I are having a, "Running late babe, gotta go" morning, we'll do the 1-second peck with eyes open. Otherwise, I like to close my eyes, while he normally keeps them open. :) Works for me!

I don't even think about it most of the time, so I'm not sure. I think I usually close my eyes.

I chose other because I prefer both, my man is so hot sometimes I have to keep my eyes open and I think man he is all mine ;)

I mostly keep them closed because it feels more intimate and I can actually get into the kiss. but sometimes I open my's always funny when I do though, because mostly all I can see is his nose and closed eyes and it makes me laugh.

Depends on the day and the type of kiss. I don't know why you need to keep your eyes closed if you don't want to.

I close mine, but open them sometimes... One time, I opened mine, and he was looking right back at me. It kind of freaked me out, so I closed them back up...
