Whether it’s your first kiss or your thousandth, whether it’s with someone new or with your longtime partner, kissing leaves an impression — one that lingers long after your lips have disengaged.

And, experts say, kissing plays an important role in #relationships. “It fosters romantic compatibility,” says Michael Christian, author of The Art of Kissing (published under the pen name William Cane). “The more that people kiss, the more they’re able to communicate on a romantic level”. When a couple kisses, they exchange emotions which can sometimes not be expressed otherwise. Kissing in a relationship will draw a sort of secure feeling to each other and will also improve the intimacy in the #love you share.

Even though you should be happy to receive a kiss of any kind, here are the types of romantic kisses that certainly won’t disappoint.

1. The Handsy Kiss

This is when you can’t keep your hands off of your partner. Your lips aren’t the only thing that will be moving, because you’ll also be rubbing your hands all over his body.
