First-kiss freak-out: Is it normal to get nauseous?
A boy I've known for 12 years asked me out on my first date. We hung out a couple of nights ago and he was so serious about me; I could tell that he really likes me. He almost kissed me, and I was so nervous that I became nauseous. I even pushed him away. Is it normal to feel this nervous before a first kiss?
So, your first kiss is a major moment in your life. Very few girls are not nervous before their first kiss…it’s perfectly normal. It sounds to me like this boy was pretty intense, so that definitely could have contributed to your nerves. Your first kiss may seem scary, but in reality, it's pretty chill situation when it actually happens. And if it's not that great, you’ll have plenty of other times to get that special kiss with someone you really like.
With that being said, don’t rush it! This boy is obviously into you, but how do you feel? When he went in to kiss you, did you push him away because you were nervous or because you simply didn’t want to kiss him? Take a moment to stop and think about your feelings for him before diving into a first kiss that you might not want or be ready for. Take your time, follow your gut and when that special moment comes, relax and enjoy!
