10 Types of Romantic Kisses + Their Secret Meanings


*Mwah*, *peck*, *puch-puch*, *kisses* a.k.a Kiss described in the lexicon as touch or caress with the lips as a sign of love, sexual desire, or greeting! The meaning, however, holds more importance. If you have ever been kissed you will relate to the tornado of feelings that surge through a person’s heart when they touch their peckers with their special mate – the anticipation of returning the kiss, butterflies in the stomach, the blank vacuum of thoughtless enjoyment when one kisses and the goosebumps freckling the body when it’s over — Ah! What a wonderful feeling!

Have you ever wondered what a kiss on the neck means? Or what the meaning of lip biting while kissing is?

Why can’t we kiss in public then? Not a full-on smooch-fest but not even a peck on the cheek or forehead?

Until we wake up to that glossy morning when kissing in public is not considered blasphemy, let’s discuss the different types of kisses and what meaning they hold.

List of 10 Different Types of Kisses:

1. Kiss on the Cheek


A non-controversial, healthy way of saying hello by loved ones, this kiss can be planted by anyone who is near and dear to you. Your mom, your sister, your friends, just about anyone who loves you and cares for you can show it through a simple peck on the cheek.

I wonder what it would be like when he locks me by holding face with his hands on my throat and kissing me gently on my nose. What a feeling that’ll be!

It undoubtedly is the sweetest kiss of all! The Eskimo kiss involves kissing lightly on the tip of the nose. A friendly way of saying you care about that person. Guys usually kiss like this when they can’t believe what a perfect girl they’ve found.

Otherwise, this kiss is usually an affectionate way for a parent to show love and care for their child.

3. Kissing the Forehead


I was controlling my emotions until he pulled me gently towards him, holding my waist and kissing gently on my eyes and forehead. 

This kiss literally makes my insides melt. Imagine looking into each other’s eyes, holding hands and suddenly one of you pulls in and kisses the forehead. Not what one would expect in a romantic moment but feels even more romantic when performed, the forehead kiss is planted to show how much they love you and care for you! 

4. Kiss of an Angel


An expression of warmth and a way of showing that he will be missed, an angel kiss is a perfect way to send him on that trip abroad thinking about you.

5. Kiss on the Lip


In other words ‘Pyaar ka signal’, this kiss is the most common second date goodbye. A safe zone for new lovers when they are just starting to explore the new relationship, this kiss allows them to get comfortable without spooking their partner.

6. The French Kiss

How would one define a passionate kisser? One who locks lips perfectly. French kiss is probably the most overdone kiss on-screen and yet the most craved. This kiss is the reason for the most amount of breakups. You start in a new relationship, sparks fly and then you kiss… only to find out that the frog didn’t turn into the prince. The French kiss involves some tongue action – easy to do but difficult to get it right! Truly speaking, if you feel it, you nail it. Just close your eyes, grab your mate and put some passion into it!

7. The Lip-biting Kiss


Reserved for the passionate and hot-blooded, this kiss will run havoc in your emotional system. Imagine your Bae grabbing you by the neck and kissing you – open-mouthed, biting that lower lip and soothing it over with his tongue; never did pain feel so wonderful! Just don’t forget to return the favor. The lower lip kiss certainly arouses one irresistibly.  ?

8. The Upside-down Kiss

9. Kiss on the Neck


What does it mean when he kisses your neck? I’m sure it stirs an emotional wave down your spine. My favorite kind really, this kiss is a welcome breather from all the lip-locking, and quite literally! It’s an amazing feeling when a guy kisses your neck and leaves you guessing about his intentions. Walking on the road or sitting on the couch reading a book, when you get a kiss on the neck and on the back of the neck from your lover, you will expect more and won’t stop till you get it! Another twist to the same is when you get kissed on the nape. There is just something extra-gooey about your guy coming from behind and kissing the back of your neck while holding you by the waist.

10. The Clandestine Kiss

A great way to take things forward without breaking the kiss, turn your regular French kiss into a clandestine lip lock. How? Start with a romantic French kiss and slowly run your hands through his hair or hold her by the waist and whisper sweet nothings while kissing her. Use your tongue against her tongue while kissing to send a secret message.

What message? Well, You know! ?


There are so many more ways to kiss and show what you really feel, like kissing on the jawline, nipping the ear lobe, kissing on the palm, or better still the wrist or inner elbow. Well, now you know what most kinds of kisses mean. 

Do you know of any other kind? I’d love to hear about them. Explore your feelings and lock them with a kiss. I hope you master the art of various kisses. Until next time then!
