Emergency! She has to kiss a boy in a play!

We get a lot of interesting questions, but this one was REALLY interesting.

Dear PLS
I have to kiss a boy in a play. I need Advice!!
Emily, 13

OMG, I don't know what I would do. It's ACTING of course, so you don't have to actually like the guy, but still could be AWKWARD. My first thought is to try to talk to the guy about it, become his friend, and see if he is nervous, too. I bet he is! Joking about it might make you both feel better.

OK, Pink Locker Girls, what do you say to Emily The Actress about her big stage kiss?!

BTW, all this week we're going to talking about your boy questions. You've sent in tons of dilemmas and quandries about B-O-Y-S!

Think pink!

Don't worry! It will be over before u know it! just ge into character and act like you really like him. Maybe you guys can talk about it before the play i am shure u guys feel the same about kissing. Your just acting dont be nervous it's not like it will last a lifetime just a few seconds of your life! I hope this helps!

Don't worry I kissed a boy in a school play it was weird at first and then I got to know him better and we became good friends just friends it was cool the thing is if you do like him tell him if you are having practice just start talking to him sometimes it will happen to start to date.

P.S.(only if you like him)

You could do the old pretend kiss. My brother did in his play and it worked out very well.

Also try talking to they guy about it and see how he feels about kissing. I really hope this helps, im not much of an advice giver!

first just relax all you can do is close your eyes and think its a HOT guy celeb or just think its the cutest boy in school.or all u have to do before u take the kiss take a deep breath in and out and just close your eyes u can hold your breath for a sec if its more comfortable and pucker up. and keep in mind two things. #1 its acting u dont have to really like the guy. #2 if you "ACT" like u were deep in the kiss and u like acting on stage then u may be on a tv show or some thing if act really awsome!!!

Aww poor thing! Ask the director about fake kissing. If it doesn't work out, don't freak out. It'll be ok. Picture a cute boy, and don't worry. It's a play. Your an awesome actor for doing it, girl!

Well first I guess you should talk to him about it, tell him you're nervous about than scene.Then probably ask how he feels about it too.After just get it over with because it might help you in the future if you want to become an actress.;)

ask if you could do a fake kiss, or a stage kiss. the most realistic way i can think of is to grab the person's face, and put your thumbs, facing vertically, on the other person's lips. then you lean in and kiss your thumbs. it looks very realistic, and it looks like you are just holding the other persons face.

I have to kiss a boy in a school play too. I just asked that boy if he really want to KISS to than he said maybe. Remember when a BOY said Maybe he meant YES so just ask that boy and maybe you'll start liking him, that's what happened to me and we started Dating and stuff........... so just ask him how he feels and MAYBE you'll get together with him. I hope it works on You Jess

Just act like he is the guy you have a crush on. You are really lucky if you ask me because I have been waiting for my first kiss and just to see what it feels like!

Well, if you like that boy, its ok. But try to pretend that he doesnt like you, otherwise there will be rumors about you and that guy. Dont panic. If he doesnt like you, well, you can talk with him about it and find a solution.

just close ur eyes and let ur imagination take over. its only for a few seconds, and if u still feel really nervous, just tell the guy. find out how he feels about it and if he's good to go, then let him take care of you--just stand there and pucker up. everything will just fall into place from there.

wow so came across this blog when I was Google-ing something. I've been doing plays for forever, and this is something I am always worried about happening. And not just cuz it would be weird kissing someone in front of a bunch of people, but because I (feel free to laugh its ok) have never kissed a guy before and I vowed in like the 3rd grade that I would NOT let my first kiss be on stage. That's happened to a couple of my friends and it would suck if it happened to me. In 8th grade, I was Sandy in GREASE and had to kiss Danny, but just on the cheek, Thank goodness!!! It was still really awkward though, but mostly because he was really shy and had this huge crush on me the entire year, which of course, I didn't know about till after the play, But the wholllllllle school knew so everyone was always asking if we were dating.... yeah talk about awkward.

anyway know your play was a while ago, so hope it went okay!

I'd say: If you really don't want to kiss the boy, ask your parents and see if you can change your role. If you don't mind, it'll be okay. If someone asks if you're dating the boy, say something like, "It was just a play."

Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely
long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly
enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for beginner blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

Take a look at my website - gentoo.Kiev.ua
