Our First Kiss Before Your Lips Touch His

Just anticipating a kiss, whether you’re wrapping up a great first date or making eyes at a guy across the room, can fire up your brain’s reward pathways, explains Sheril Kirshenbaum, author of The Science of Kissing. “The more anticipation you feel leading up to a kiss, the greater the dopamine spike,” she says, referring to the pleasure hormone your brain produces when you experience something enjoyable. Dopamine energizes your brain and senses, and prepares them to fully absorb new experiences and sensory information, Kirshenbaum says. Anticipating the kiss may also trigger a release of norepinephrine in your noodle, she explains. This stress hormone explains the nervousness you experience as his eyes find yours and he starts to lean in.

Our Place During the Kiss

Your lips comprise one of your body’s densest zones of nerve endings, allowing you to detect even the faintest whisp of sensation, Kirshenbaum says. And thanks to all those nerve endings, kissing fires up a surprisingly large portion of your brain, she says. (Believe it or not, more of your noodle is activated

ENGAGEMENT

during kissing than during sex, some research suggests.) Why? Kirshenbaum says one answer might have to do with all the judging your brain is doing as it weighs whether or not you should take things beyond the kiss and into the bedroom. “We’re so aware of everything that’s happening during a kiss because it’s such an important part of the decision-making process when choosing a mate,” she explains. “People describe ‘getting lost’ in sex. But that’s not the case with kissing because our brains are hyper-focused on whether or not to take things further.” Kirshenbaum says women typically have stronger senses of smell than men. And as you kiss, your nose is sniffing around your partner for important scent-based information. This info is delivered in the form of pheromones, chemicals his body secretes that tell your brain all sorts of important things about him, including stuff about his genetic makeup.

Our Wedding Day After Your Kiss

MATRIMONY Dopamine is also associated with addiction and habit-forming behaviors, Kirshenbaum says. This may explain why, in the days and weeks after your first (and subsequent) make-out sessions, you just can’t seem to get your new partner out of your head. Dopamine can also wipe out your appetite and make it hard to sleep, research shows. Studies have also found kissing triggers the release of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which causes feelings of obsession. Another hormone, oxytocin, also spikes during and after your kiss. This fosters feeling of affection and closeness, and so keeps you coming back for more even after the initial high has worn off, Kirshenbaum says. “Kissing is a universal human behavior for a lot of reasons,” she says, adding that it’s probably one of the most important aspects of our mate selection process. So pucker up! Dopamine is also associated with addiction and habit-forming behaviors, Kirshenbaum says. This may explain why, in the days and weeks after your first (and subsequent) make-out sessions, you just can’t seem to get your new partner out of your head. Dopamine can also wipe out your appetite and make it hard to sleep, research shows. 11

You Make Me Happy Things I Wish I Never Did on My Big Day

“THE WEDDING DRESS DESIGNER TALKED ME INTO BUYING A GOWN THAT I DIDN’T LOVE,” LUCY SAYS. “I WAS OOHING AND AWING AND BEFORE I KNEW IT, THE WEDDING DRESS WAS IN A BAG WAITING TO BE PAID FOR. I’M A TERRIBLY POLITE BRITISH GIRL AND I WAS TOO EMBARRASSED TO DROP OUT AT THAT POINT! I SPENT ABOUT $400 ON ALTERATIONS TO TURN IT INTO THE WEDDING DRESS I WANTED.

“Without permission, my brother and his wife decided to put on a game show questionnaire about my husband and I. The game show made me very upset since it took up 45 minutes and cut into our first dance. On top of all that, I missed out on saying goodbye to my guests that left during this goofy show. I had imagined all the fun I would have dancing and the night was over before it started.” “Without permission, my brother and his wife decided to put on a game show questionnaire about my husband and I. The game show made me very upset since it took up 45 minutes and cut into our first dance. On top of all that, I missed out on saying goodbye to my guests.

“For my ceremony, I planned on exchanging simple vows and then heading straight to the reception,” says Alison. “My mom insisted that guests would feel cheated if the service wasn’t longer, so I had my band sing a wedding song that went on forever. I don’t even remember what song it was—only feeling like it would never end!” 19

“My husband and I planned to stay together in a hotel room the night before our wedding but my maid of honor said we should sleep in separate rooms, because it is a wedding tradition”.
