'The Lizard' and 4 Other Awful Kinds of Kisses to Avoid

If you are single and dating, you might understand what it's like to kiss a few frogs. If you're looking for love sometimes, you've got to kiss more than a few.

So, lets hop to it and get this bad kissing party started. Then we need to get our dating calendar and fill it will men who are great kissers!

1. The Lizard Kiss. This one was from long long ago, thankfully. I wanted to completely block the memory of this doozie of a bad kiss, but still, to this day, it haunts my brain. It was almost like this guy shape-shifted into a lizard, but retained soft human lips. When my lips touched his, a quickly moving, up and down tongue came out and I didn't know what to do andI didn't think it would ever stop. Now I know what it feels like to be a fly and I really empathize with them now - the poor things.

2. The Bologna Sandwich Kiss.
I got this line from romantic comedy when I was down with the flu. I'm so glad I was sick that weekend so I can share this line in my own words from my own personal kissing experience. "I'm serious. Kissing him was like kissing a bologna sandwich." I laughed out loud at this one, because it perfectly described what it was like to kiss him. His tongue was lifeless and when it was moving, it was flopping around with no direction.

3. The Dirty Dog Kiss. This one surprised me a little. He seemed so suave and had the softest, slickest black hair. He had all the right moves in the beginning. I'm not sure exactly what happened, maybe he was getting in touch with his inner Labrador Retriever? It went from a delicious seductive kiss, to him licking the Burt's Bee lotion off my face; I had to sanitize and moisturize after that one. And to top it all off, all of my dog treats came up missing!

4. The Black Hole Kiss. I almost didn't make it out of this one alive! When he came in to make his move, his mouth was opened as much as someone experimenting with a wind tunnel. He not only engulfed my lips and my chin, but his lips almost covered my entire nose. I was literally gasping for air, it was so horrible. I thought that no kiss could ever be as bad as this one.

5. No-Heart Kiss. This is a tricky one here because the No-Heart kisser has all the right moves, so it can be very deceiving. His techniques are so good that you might think there is something there, like an almost-chemistry. His lips feel great on yours yet there is just something missing. This is the guy who has read every article on the Art of Kissing website and countless other books on kissing. His lips have a message for you: there is no real feeling, connection or no heart whatsoever.

A friend of mine also went out with the bologna sandwich guy and she thought he was a great kisser. However, we just didn't connect. You may have some bad kissing experiences like these but don't let them scar you for life; your lips and your hearts just didn't jive.

There are men out there who want to rock your socks off and love you for being you. There are men out there who want your decorative plates to rumble off the wall when you think about kissing him again on the second date.

  • This Adventurous Elopement Involved a Long Hike to a Waterfall, but Wow, It Was Worth It

    Mira and Pearce met on a dating app. Pearce hadn't even bothered to complete his profile, so Mira didn't want to swipe right, but her friend did it for her! And thank goodness she did, because the pair were meant to be, and in late 2018, they tied the knot in a unique way that totally represented who they are as a couple. Instead of a traditional wedding, they opted for an adventurous elopement and rented a cabin in Sooke on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. On the day of their wedding, the pair were very relaxed, despite the fact that it was supposed to rain. Pearce called it "the perfect day" for their wedding. The pair upped the adventure and decided to take their wedding photos at Mystic Beach, which involved a 45-minute hike just to reach the entrance. The pair said their "I dos" and were brimming with joy. Photographer Heather Stone captured their happiness against the stunning outdoor scenery. "Once we finished, they darted across the beach then looped back and jumped straight through the waterfall and into their futures together," Heather said. She captured a few more snaps of the pair until sunset, and they turned out absolutely incredible. Take a look for yourself!

  • The Love Story Behind This Couple's Marvel-Themed Wedding Is One For the (Comic) Books

    Shana and James's love story all began with a simple "like" on social media. The two messaged each other for a while and wound up going on a couple dates. Shana was late to both, but that didn't deter James. In fact, James's mom is always late, and he always thought he would marry someone with similar traits to his mother. "At the end of the second date when [we] hugged, James [said] he thought I fit him perfectly," Shana told POPSUGAR. "It was like puzzle pieces. We just went well together. It was later I found out from James that at that moment he knew he wanted to be with me for the rest of his life." When it came to popping the question, James took his time after purchasing the ring to plan the perfect, most memorable proposal. Finally, the idea came to him: first, he wrote and recorded an original song for Shana, then he filmed a music video that featured all of their friends and family with a surprise proposal at the end. Shana was told the film was for a Black love documentary, so she had no idea what James had up his sleeve. "While filming, all our family and friends jumped out of nowhere and screamed 'Shay!'" Shana said. "Looking around the corner to see everybody there, especially my best friend, who I thought was still in Michigan at the time, was totally shocking and mind-blowing. After turning back around I see James on bended knee and of course, I start to cry. He then asks me to marry him, and [I] said yes!" The gesture was sweet, romantic, and in Shana's words, the "most amazing proposal." It wasn't long after the engagement before the two started planning their big day. Shana knew what she wanted from the start, but agreed to let James have his input. As it turns out, James knew what he wanted as well - a Marvel comics-themed wedding - and immediately started purchasing the outfits and masks needed to make it happen. The couple got married in October 2019 in High Point, NC, and had a celebration of a lifetime, complete with superheroes and elegant touches.
