Do you regret your first kiss?

Asked by AshLeigh (15002 points ) August 8th, 2011

I was just thinking of how unbelievably stupid I was for having ever kissed Avery. I wish it had been Nick.
What about you?

Not really. I don’t really remember who my first kiss was.

AshLeigh's avatar

@KatetheGreat, you don’t remember? Were you a little kid? Hah.

nikipedia's avatar

Nope. And, unsolicited advice: kissing the wrong people can tell you a lot about who the right people to kiss are.

@KatetheGreat you are seriously the only other person I’ve ever met to say that. I really don’t remember, either. Apparently that’s odd. I remember my first memorable kiss. Before that? I dunno.

KateTheGreat's avatar

@AshLeigh I kissed plenty of boys when I was a little kid for money, but when I was older and had a real first kiss, I don’t remember. I just didn’t care enough.

@ANef_is_Enuf Everyone thinks I’m crazy for it.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@KatetheGreat I sincerely relate. People really don’t get it. Though, I barely remember a lot of “important” milestones in my life. That stuff just really never mattered to me. I’m not a very sentimental person, I guess. I like that there is someone else out there that gets it.

To answer the question – yes, I regret my first memorable kiss. Because it sucked. That’s why I remember it.

Nah, why should I? It was nice, and it helped me get experience, right? I mean, things’ve certainly changed between me and this girl since, but I’m totally okay with my first kiss having been with her.

Never! Although we both were bad kissers back then! :P

Jeruba's avatar

Not at all. It was lovely. I was 9 and he was 13, and it could hardly have been more innocent. I still remember what it felt like.

TexasDude's avatar

I was 15, she was 16. She had blue, black, and blonde hair and a lip ring and we made out during the movie Jarhead.

I regret nothing.

linguaphile's avatar

I don’t remember my first kiss either… (racking brain) nope. Not there.

I remember the best kisser though!! (grin!)

SavoirFaire's avatar

Nope. Made my second kiss go way better.

RealEyesRealizeRealLies's avatar

That’s funny. I was just thinking how unbelievably stupid I was for kissing Nick first. All these years I’ve longed for Avery.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Jarhead was the movie that my husband took me to see on our first date. True story.

TexasDude's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf that’s awesome! I love it.

Prosb's avatar

I don’t regret it, because it kept my first kiss from being with an awfully scary girl later on . . .

@Prosb

What was scary about her? ;-0

ucme's avatar

Nah, regret is the cancer of the pessimistic mind.
Besides, she almost ate my face off, what’s not to like?

Prosb's avatar

@Brian1946 She was one of those people who seem one way when you first are with them, but then reveals some odd desires/personality traits after your first date.

One example of how “scary” she was: She wanted a vial of my blood.

disenchanted_poisongirl's avatar

No, not really. I was a very bad kisser, and that guy (Mike?) was soooooo stupid. I think he deserved a bad kiss. It wasn’t a cute moment, or a magic one, or anything. But there has to be a first one. Aaaaand I don’t regret it, because back then, I didn’t know what the future would be like, or who was going to be next, etc.

“One example of how ‘scary’ she was: She wanted a vial of my blood.”

Yikes, although that didn’t seem to bother Billy Bob Thornton. ;-)

@Prosb “One example of how “scary” she was: She wanted a vial of my blood.”
That’s not scary

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

No.It was nice.:)

Prosb's avatar

@Brian1946 If we had been in the relationship for a long time, I don’t think I would react the same way as I did, IF the blood was just to wear as a sort of amulet of love, the way you pointed out Bill Bob Thorton did.

@disenchanted_poisongirl This blood was apparently going to be used for a different purpose. She was planning to use it as a reagent, in some kind of “dark magic ritual”. What she was thinking was supposed to be like drinking love potions to, “strengthen our relationship”.

What makes this scary to me is that we had gone on a single date. This kind of stuff for recreational purposes after years in a relationship, to keep things fresh is fine, if you’re into it. Besides that, if the ritual did what it said, that would be bad in my opinion.
I would prefer love forged personally, over time with someone you eventually can’t be without. This would be like giving up before it started. Love without love is just wrong.

Cruiser's avatar

No…it was very nice and one of those very memorable moments! :)

disenchanted_poisongirl's avatar

@Prosb And she talked to you about that on the first date? That’s crazy.

Prosb's avatar

@disenchanted_poisongirl Yea, I had wanted to say she was crazy, not scary. Only thing is, crazy doesn’t have to be bad in my opinion, we’re all a bit off.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Nah, it was very good.

disenchanted_poisongirl's avatar

@Prosb Yeah sure we all are, but that’s sick. In my opinion, it was too soon to say something like that. I wouldn’t ask anyone to give me some of his blood, if I didn’t know that person well. Or if he wasn’t into that kind of stuff.

aprilsimnel's avatar

The lucky dude and I ended up not being all that compatible, but he was a great kisser, so, no. No regrets.

Seelix's avatar

I don’t remember who my first kiss was. And no, I don’t regret it. I don’t even regret the fact that I don’t remember who it was.

I think that as you get older, any kind of regret about kissing someone lessens or even disappears. Regret about the person to whom you lost your virginity? That’s more likely among adults, I think.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Seelix I remember the who, the where, the when, and what she tasted like. I just messed it up because she also wanted my virginity and I didn’t realize it. How’s that for irony?

tedibear's avatar

I remember who my first kiss was and I don’t regret it. He was a nice guy and a decent kisser.

King_Pariah's avatar

I don’t regret it even though I wish my first kiss was more intimate rather than by accident.

tranquilsea's avatar

No. I still have a great deal of respect for him 25 years later.

Aetori's avatar

I do sort of think like “Ooh, I shouldn’t have kissed him” but in the end I’m happy that my first kiss was with that guy :). But we broke up like couple of days later :P. Not a promising boyfriend he was.

pezz's avatar

No regreats.. just the start of something better to come… @KatetheGreat It couldn’t have been me.. you’d have remembered.

KateTheGreat's avatar

@pezz Hahahaha, oh really now?

spittingamethyst's avatar

Nope. No regrets. It’s all apart of life.

Scarikah's avatar

I do. Because I only did it to get my boyfriend to break up with me. But..you remember that story. :D

(That kind of sounds bad. I’m gonna leave it like that.)

AshLeigh's avatar

@Scarikah hahaha. We’re sisters, I don’t need more of an explanation. I know this story. :)

GabrielsLamb's avatar

I regret most of them actually. Not just the first one.

LuckyGuy's avatar

I remember where and when. It was with Pat C in the summer when she was 13 and I was 12. Nice.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I’ve never had a kiss I regretted. My only regret might be not getting more of them. :)
