Dating & Relationships
I'm kind of frustrated about my first kiss. I almost got kissed by a boy, but I panicked because I didn't know how. I ran off from the park like 2 seconds after it "almost" happened. Please help!

Practice. Practice kissing someone you trust, your pillow, or your hand so that you are ready to amaze the one you really like when the time comes.
Go for it. Everyone's clumsy their first time; that's part of the magic and the charm! If you kiss sincerely and just do what feels right when it's happening, you can't go wrong.
Wait. Save your first kiss for someone you know won't make you feel embarrassed, ashamed, or awkward. The first person you kiss should care about you enough to work with you. It's the least you deserve.
Learn. Talk and read about kissing. Learn about the different kinds. Everyone has their own style and preference (lots of tongue/no tongue? wet/dry? fast/slow?). The more you know, the better it will be for you.
