Valentine's Day is two weeks away...are you ready? It's a time for remembering that special someone in your life. Cards, flowers, candy, and more, are given as tokens of affection.
But, how many of us are celebrating this special day with the person we shared our first REAL kiss with? Notice I put the word "REAL" in capitals. I'm not talking about kissing that third grade classmate or puckering up with someone while playing "Spin the Bottle". I mean when you kissed someone you thought you were in love with.
Can anyone say that their first "REAL" kiss was with the person they're sharing their life with now?
Nope. Not me. And, I would guess very few people could say that! My first "REAL" kiss was with an eighteen-year-old sailor I was dating. Now, you have to understand that this was MANY years ago and I was raised in a VERY Catholic home. I had just been given permission to start dating. (Yeah...and now I write sensuous or erotic romance books!)
When I think back to that kiss, I now realized I had nothing to compare it to...except TV and movie kisses I'd seen. They were always very passionate, with music in the background. Mine was nothing like that. I thought I "loved" Bob, but no passion or music. Just a kiss. (The photo is NOT me!)
But it was that very crucial first kiss...and gave me something to compare the next ones to!
My heroes and heroines share their first kisses in different places and stages of their relationships. I didn't supply music for them but hope they heard some...and I hope you supply music and sense their passion when you read about their first kissing encounters!
