The oldest of taboos and phenomenons can be found amongst the gossipers, the yentas, the mean girls and the grandmothers of our generation; in fact it exists solely amongst the little known but vital reasons to kiss and tell. Women have been told their entire lives not to kiss and tell, and to keep their womanhood under wraps, but the cliché "a lady should never kiss and tell" needs to finally be retired and buried with the rest of the many overused sayings that are firmly outdated. Because there many reasons to kiss and tell where you can stay sane and reputable in today’s society.
1. He’s Worthy of Telling
Going on a date or having an awesome experience with a guy that you are so excited about you need to tell someone, if not anyone, or you will simply burst is something I know I can relate to on a regular basis. So why not share it with your best girl-friends!? No one says you can’t kiss and tell and sometimes you want to tell and get things off your chest because your date was just that amazing! This is one of the best reasons to kiss and tell.
2. Needing Advice
Keeping your dating life under wraps is a personal choice, but I would never do that because I was worried about a reputation created by kissing and telling. And most of the time, when I tell my friends about my prospects, they offer some great advice that I can definitely use. If I had not told my friends or even my mother and grandmother about these experiences, I would never have reaped the rewards of their wise advice!
3. Fuming and Angry
Times when I’ve come back from a truly awful nightmare date or one night stand I definitely need to be consoled. Kissing and telling in this instance can be therapeutic, which is definitely classified under reasons to kiss and tell and can result in a fruitful learning experience for the future.
4. He’s a Cheater
I’m sure we’ve all experienced at one point or another a date who is far from a prince or stand up citizen. Why men cheat or why men are the way that they are is a phenomenon studied by professionals and experts alike and there are many theories. However if you’ve unfortunately been saddled in a situation where your kisser is cheating on someone else, this is a great reason to kiss and tell mostly so that the woman he is cheating on will find out and end up in a happier circumstance.
5. He Has an STD
I absolutely hate this reason but it is inevitably included in this list simply because it is just as important as the others. If you’ve managed to contract an STD from your lover, it is very important to kiss and tell so that his ex-lovers can become aware of the circumstance and act accordingly. This doesn’t necessarily mean break it off with your long-time boyfriend, but it is common courtesy to let other ladies know what they have been exposed to.
6. Needing Validation
Experts often say this is the number one reason why people kiss and tell in general and I can definitely see why. After a night of serious kissing worthy of telling, most people need a friend or family member to tell them that they have done/are doing the right thing. So this is probably the most rewarding and useful reason to kiss and tell, so don’t hesitate to have someone validate you. But don’t worry you did the right thing!
7. Confidence Boost
This is different from needing advice or validation because kissing and telling can lead to a feeling of complete elation, like you are the coolest and more suave person in the entire world. And something this isn’t such a great thing but most of the time this is awesome! Who doesn’t want to feel like a total superhero for kissing a handsome prospect, so feel free to share it.
Kissing and telling should be done with discretion, but if you haven’t tried it I’m sure these reasons to kiss and tell may have pushed you in a more immature but certainly beneficial and enjoyable direction in your dating lives. Can you think of any other reasons to kiss and tell?
