"Do you think your first kiss should be a big deal? My first kiss with a boy was lame, but I thought it didn’t count because I like girls. But then my first kiss with a girl was anything but special. I wasn’t attracted to her and it everything was pretty much alcohol induced. Very "experimental". Now I feel bad. I always thought these things should be special. What do you think?"

Oh man, I spent so much time wondering this exact thing. First of all, you will have a bunch of different first kisses. Every single time you have feelings for someone and you want to kiss on their face mouth, you’ll have a first kiss with them. So, it’s like, does the first time you EVER KISS ANYONE count as a first kiss, even!?! Who knows. I don’t think it matters.
Honestly, I don’t remember MOST of my first kisses. There are a few that stick out in my mind, and I feel like that’s how it’s supposed to be?? Right? Like, you remember that really terrible first kiss where the boy you halfway had a crush on spun his togue around in your mouth like an ACTUAL blender. And you remember that really amazing first kiss that ended up lasting for 6 hours.
And like, maybe the best first kiss ever happens when you’re 16 but also maybe doesn’t happen until you’re 27, you know what I mean? Don’t feel bad if your first kisses are lackluster, it isn’t about when, you know? It’s about whom.
(hey yall did i use ‘whom’ correctly? thx)
You guys, Disney has been lying to all of us for a million years.
First kisses are usually (mostly always) NEVER romantic, ever.
Also, apparently that magic carpet ride would have killed Aladdin & Jasmine.
Don’t worry about your first kiss, or your second kiss, or your third.
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE FOURTH KISS.
No, it’s not. That just seemed to be the best way to dramatically end my thought.
Kissing is practice for better kissing. My first kiss was with a boy named Dave in the back of a bus and he used the EXACT same blender technique that Dannielle referred to earlier. My first girl-kiss was done on a dare and it was terrifying and horrible. Then, there were some kisses that were pretty okay and I was like “OH HEY CHECK OUT THIS KISSING THING.” Then, there were kisses that were like, “OMG THAT KISSING THING FROM BEFORE WAS SO LAME THIS IS THE BEST THING ON PLANET EARTH.”
It’s totally cool. You have your entire life to kiss people.
WHOOHOO THREE CHEERS FOR ALL THE KISSING!
"How can I work up the courage to kiss the girl I like? I know she likes me back and that she wants me to kiss her first but I don’t know how to initiate it…"

I would probably scream “THREE – TWO – ONE” and then barrel my face into hers, ya know? If you do a count down, she’ll be like ‘wha’ and then you smash your face into hers and if it doesn’t work out you’ll both be LOLing so hard nothing will matter… plus that makes for a damn good story.
OH OH OH OR –
Stand in your room and walk over to your iTunes and play Avril Lavigne’s cover of Six Pence Nonethericher’s “Kiss Me” and stare at her directly in the eyeballs and say ‘get it?’ and keep staring, try not to blink or smile… That will drive your point home.
OH OH OH OH OH OR –
Ask her if she’ll help you with a scene you’re working on for Acting class and when she goes ‘sure’ hand her a script that just says “Actor 1 Kisses Actor 2” and say ‘You’re actor one’ and pucker TF up.
Dannielle is FUNNY sometimes, y’all.
Let’s see… first of all, just remember that everyone always feels like an asshole when they go to kiss someone for the first time. It’s such a WEIRD and FUNNY thing. So, embrace the awkward and just remember that at the end of the day you will at the very least have a hilarious story to share with your friends and, at the very best, you will have a hilarious story to recount with the girl who won’t stop making out with you.
Second of all. Here are some other ideas:
1. Be like, “OMG OMG OMG OMG EVERYONE IS GAY ANSWERED MY QUESTION WANT TO SEE?” and then show her this question. About seven seconds into her reading it start very loudly saying, “THREE – TWOOOO – …”
2. Pull her close, look her in the eyes and say, “Do you know what we should do right now?” and when she gets nervous and is like, “What…” hold her gaze and say, “We should rent old Mary Kate and Ashley movies and have a marathon.” When she laughs slash looks confused, say, “Right after we do this,” AND THEN KISS HER MOUTH.
3. Run into the room screaming, “A snake bit my lip, a snake bit my lip, the only way I will live is if someone puts their mouth on mine to deactivate the poiiiisoonnnnnnnn,” and then throw yourself, lifeless, on the floor.
"How do you tell if someone is flirting with you?"

Think to yourself “If I didn’t like this person, would I be creeped out?”
If the answer is yes, then they are flirting with you.
Look them right in the eye and say, “Are you flirting with me?”
