Hump Day: First Kisses

First kisses...

If you've been kissed, how would you describe that very first time?  Was it what you expected or completely different?

Did that kiss change your mind about the person you were interested in?

According to a UAlbany research study by Hughes et al., the first kiss can be a real deal breaker.  Their study findings showed that their participants could be attracted to someone, but after a first kiss that didn't connect or didn't meet their romantic desires, the person would lose interest after that initial kiss.  Would you give your date a second chance to find that connection?  Or is a first kiss a true deal breaker for you?

And to brighten up your day- see a true first kiss below.
