5 types of kisses and their meanings you need to know

Every kiss has a meaning

So, the next time you kiss someone's hand or their neck, be sure to be sending the right message. Let's explore some of the most common kisses and what they really mean.

Forehead kiss

This is a very common kiss among friends and family. Someone could give you this kiss to comfort you in times of sorrow while it is also a sign of admiration for someone. For lovers, it shows that you are fond and proud of your partner and that you are willing to share more with them.

Hand kiss

When a man kisses the back part of a woman's hand, it shows that the man respects and adores the woman. Usually, the man lifts up the lady's hand and gently places his lips on its back side. It is also a sign of admiration and affection.

Kiss on the cheek

This is a very simple kiss that only involves a simple peck on someone's cheek. It is mostly accompanied by a hug or a handshake. The meaning, however, varies from one culture to another. In some cultures, it is just a way to say hello, while in others it is a way to say goodbye. Mothers also use this kiss to show their affection for their kids.

French kiss

This kiss is purely reserved for intimate people. If you give someone a French kiss, it means that you are romantically interested in them. This kiss also involves a lot of passion, tongue activity and can finally lead to making love.

Earlobe kiss

If you are not ready for intimacy, don't even think of playing around with the earlobe kiss. This kiss involves kissing and nibbling your partner's earlobes as a sign that you are sexually interested in them. The ear is a very erogenous zone and such a kiss, therefore, is only reserved for intimate people.
