First kisses aren’t something I would ever recommend getting over with. Yeah they can be awkward, and sloppy, but no matter what the outcome, it’s still a connection with someone. Sometimes you’ll bump heads, or teeth, or bite them, or get your braces stuck together, but just embrace it. Because it’s not something you’re experiencing alone. It is that one, single act that can be the start of something amazing. Don’t throw that away in fear of messing up.
It’s that first time when you are close enough to a person to see every freckle on their face, the way their lips fall into yours, the way you pull away and the first thing you’re in contact with when your eyes focus is theirs, and that’s such an incredible thing. Savor it, savor who it’s with. It could mean everything to them without you even knowing it.
