Things You Think About When You’re Making Out With Someone

  • 0

My brain fell asleep for a second. Oh dear, I think my lips stopped moving too. God, there’s just a lot going on right now. Sometimes I just blackout when I’m kissing someone and come to with their tongue lodged down my throat. It pokes me back to life or something. Does the cheese stand alone in this issue or is it like an actual thing? I need to know.

When is this person’s tongue going to make a cameo? We’ve been kissing like we’re on a teen drama on The CW, which I love, but I’m ready to take it to the next level. Oh, there it is. Annnnnd now it’s gone! It was like a gofer coming out of its hole. It stabbed me and ran away. Come back! I’m going to chase it with my tongue now. Oh no, I just hit their teeth. Ow. I really just screwed that up.

What do I need to do tomorrow? I know I have to fill out my W9, and go fax some stuff. I should probably do some laundry too. I don’t have any clean clothes and its embarrassing. Oh wait, am I still making out with someone? Shoot! This make out session has felt like an Ambien slowly dissolving on tongue. I’m ready for bed. How can I end this? Can I just roll over? Imagine if I was that person. So liberating. No, but seriously, how am I going to get this person off my face and into a cab?

OMG, I love making out. I’m so in sync with this dude, it’s crazy. We’re basically trying to mold our faces into one. “DAMN IT, HOW CAN I FEEL CLOSER TO YOU IN THIS MOMENT? WHAT CAN I DO? Oh, right. There’s always that other thing we could do.”

If you actually think about the act of making out, it’s pretty foul. We feel compelled to kiss each other on the lips and feel each other’s tongues? But why?! It all feels very National Geographic to me. We always “LOL” when we see other species’ mating rituals but I bet that whatever/whoever comes after humans is going to be like “Ewwww!” when they see footage of us kissing. “WHY ARE THEY DOING THAT TO EACH OTHER? IT LOOKS SO SCARY!”

Wow, making out is pretty intimate. And I like how you can add “personal touches” to it, like kissing the side of their lip or nibbling on an ear. You can be sexy or playful, or both. Being playful can be the best though. It can be absolutely delightful. In a lot of ways, I think making out is more intimate than sex. It feels like a purer reflection of someone’s personality, a natural extension of who they are. God, this make out session is good. I feel seriously drugged. You know you’re having a good make out sesh when you feel stoned just off of someone’s lips. When the kissing finally stops, it’s like you immediately get a hangover. The only cure for this is to continue making out until your jaw locks and your face falls off. Only cure. TC mark

      That happened to me just last night…It was dreadful and sad but I was in serious need of a make out sesh. 
      I’m also regretting it. ugh.

      Love you Ryan!!

      But what about if they just ate food?

      What if their mouths are ‘too clean’? Like kissing a warm, moist tomato with pre-chewed spermint gum in it.

      The worst is getting woken up by a girl making out with you at 8am [after staying up until 6am making out for 4 hours]
      I just passed out with her tongue in my mouth 10 mins later
      My jaw ached for 2 straight days after that night

      Loved everything about this post!  Can totally relate to the “things I need to do later” part…even if it’s a really amazing make out sesh, the laundry list of things always creeps into my head at one point or another!

      Last paragraph: WIN.

    • ihabyoubutnotreally

      I’ve recently made out with someone and pictured my crush’s face whilst kissing this someone. Mean. But… :(

      • Sdf

        Happened to me once and that ruined everything….

    • xra

       ugh, #1 rings so true, last night i took what must be one of the hottest girls alive home and realized that somehow, some way, she had made it to 19 without learning how to kiss AT ALL… who kisses with their lips all firm anyway that’s not the point

    • Sophia

      The last paragraph is perrrrfect. Ryan, your writing in the past few weeks has been so, soo good.

      Kissing IS weird. I go through waves of being into it and then being grossed out by it.

    • guest

      Kissing is gross when you think about it. I love that I cringe when someone takes a sip from my drink, but I don’t really panic after someone else had their tongue in my mouth. I guess it’s (usually) worth it.

        same with sex my friend

    • Lily

      fo the longest time i would always start laughing when i was making out because the only thought going through my head was that the idea of making out is just so funny. Like the idea itself is just.. so strange.

      this article has been done by someone else. ryan you’re articles are horrible which you’ve obviously realised but now you’ve stooped to re-doing articles posted by other authors only months ago.

      • Tyrone

          sigh. i don’t know how his drone could satisfy anyone. everything he writes lacks substance, and he flat out copied another article so get off your high horse because all i did was point out that he re-wrote another article.. badly.  which, he did. https://thoughtcatalog.com/2011/what-i-actually-think-during-a-random-hook-up/

      I’m not thinking about laundry or what I’m doing tomorrow when I’m making out! I’m usually thinking how to get the other person to do more than make-out.

      boy, you just took a great thing and threw puke and garbage all over it.
