Hi all !
Just posting as much as I can remember. All of those topics have been on my mind for a while but didn't had time to post them so here they are.

How would someone react if someone else they don't really know would kiss them ?

I've never been kissed and I'd like so badly to be kissed even if it's just a kiss. But what would someone feel if someone they're daily with (friend, co-worker, etc) would kiss them just like that, out of nowhere ?

I wouldn't do such I thing but always wondered what would happen.

Thanks !

- I hope I shall be able to confide in you conpletely, as I have never been able to do in anyone before, and I hope that you will be a great support and comfort to me.

It depends. On the person,(if they had ever considered you as a potential..) circumstances, and more. And obviously you're not talking a REAL stranger, right?

Yeah, it depends on the person being kissed, and the person doing the kissing. If the person being kissed likes the other person, or both of them are friends, then there probably wouldn't be a problem. Sometimes though, the kiss could result in slapping or sexual harassment suits. If it were me, I guess I wouldn't really care. As long as it was an innocent kiss and the person wasn't a total stranger, I wouldn't think too much about it.

Come check out what's goin on in Lucky's mind!

Hmmm...well to be quite honest, I think that right now I'd be a little upset if somebody just walked up and kissed me. See, I've never been kissed either *blushes*, and I think I'd like to have that first kiss with my boyfriend (who I love dearly!). But I dunno, that's just how I feel about it right now....

Kissing a co-worker out of the blue? No. No. No. Never. Especially at work. It can result in a a slap, a kick, a scream, possibly even a lawsuit! Even if you feel a mutual attraction between yourself and a coworker, it's best not to kiss them randomly.

A stranger on the street? No. God knows where THAT mouth has been.

A friend? Possibly. If it's a good friend that you want to be more than friends with (and you get the vibe they feel the same way), then take the chance. If you want to take a little guesswork out of it, ask if you can could kiss them first.

Good luck David!

For myself, I'm slow to react to surprises, even pleasant ones. So even if the kiss was from a source I appreciated, they'd probably still think I didn't enjoy it, because my brain would be going, "Huh? What the blazes?" thus preventing proper appreciation and kissing back. I enjoy it much more (and kiss back!) if I expect and want the kiss. (And if I don't want it, I'm better at ducking gracefully!)

And I've got no illusions about you.
Guess what? I never did.

I now must share an amusing anecdote.

About nine years ago, my now-husband (and then friend and occasional lover )and I were supposed to meet for lunch at the health food store where we both worked part-time.

I came in through the back to meet him, and as I came through the doors, saw him happily skipping over to a woman who -- from behind -- really looked just like me -- hair, clothes, height, build and all. Before I could shout out hello, B. wrapped his arms around this poor chickie from behind and gave her a big hug and a smoochie, and she turned around very quickly, aghast right about the time I fell out laughing, so poor B. realized right at that moment that not only had he essentially accosted a total stranger 9and a customer, no less) but that I saw the whole thing happen.

All things considered, she handled it very gracefully. B., on the other hand, was five shades of crimson. I am fairly certain I busted my appendix laughing.

I would never let him live that down. Yes, I am mean.

Here, if you try to kiss someone who doesn't know you, expect a molest charge to be slapped on you or to get beaten up.

Yes, we are very friendly people.

But seriously, it is just not in our culture to kiss and hug strangers.
