Remember when you daydreamed about getting your first kiss? Chances are your imagination really hyped up the event, and you spent hours going over every possible scenario. And it’s just as likely that, in the midst of adulthood, kissing is not something you get to think about all that often. It may just be something you and your SO rush through or more or less omit altogether. However, there are tons of little ways kissing makes your life better. It can help decrease your stress levels, facilitate bonding in a relationship, and even provide a surprising amount of health benefits.
There are plenty of reasons you and your SO (or the rando at the bar — no judgement) should be in the habit of frequent kisses. It can bring you closer together as a couple and reaffirm your bond. It’s an easy way to retain that new-love spark as you settle into a more long-term relationship. After all, almost no one complains about too much affection from a partner. And if you’re into PDA, you can become that disgustingly cute couple who just can’t get enough of each other. In no time, your real-life kisses may be just as magical as you once imagined they would be. Why not take the time to enjoy these benefits today?
