A kissing question

OK, so we already took care of Emily, see below, who had to kiss a boy in a play. But that was just acting. Today's question is about real life. K.D., 11, has been waiting patiently for an answer, so let's try to help!

Dear PLS,
this is the 3rd time i asked u this and i think its pretty important 4 girls advice!!!!
my bf has had alot of gfs so far and he has kissed almost every1 of them. what if he trys 2 kiss me? im not ready 2 kiss yet but i dont want him 2 think im not in2 him anymore i do really like him! please help pls!

Oh, K.D. I think you already have your answer. You said "I'm not ready to kiss yet." I think our hearts and minds are pretty smart and if it doesn't feel right, don't do it. If he wants to kiss you, you might have to tell him the same thing, but in a nice way, of course. What do you think, Pink Locker Girls, am I right? What's your advice for K.D.?

Think pink!

That happened to me. But I did the wrong thing and let him kiss me. If you're not ready, tell him beforehand that you don't want your first kiss yet. But if you don't tell him until he's about to kiss you, you can tell him then.
Hope I helped!

Dear K.D.,
I think you should just tell him how you feel, and if he doesn't understand just tell him "ok i'm into you, but if you try to kiss me just forget about me being your gf."
follow your heart.
truly yours,

He seems like a player so be careful. If you are not ready don't kiss him, tell him, but say it nicely. If he really cares about you, he'll understand. Don't let any hearts be broken!

Just say no. If he trys to make his move tell him you are not ready.He sounds kinda of risky. If he still trys to kiss you say good-bye.

I totally agree with Jemma - its ur body and ur right. You shouldnt feel pressured or forced into doing anything you dont want to do. if he wants to kiss you thats fine - but let him know whether you're okay about it first. If hes a good guy he'll understand perfectly and will have know problem! if he does have a problem, well then it might be worth reconsidering if he has respect for yuor feelings or not. Your body - your choice. Hope that helped! <3

Dear K.D.,
Jemma's right-if you're not ready then you shouldn't be rushed. a first kiss is something to remember and it should be special, not forced. just do what your heart tells you to. that's the only thing that matters.<33

Hey K.D

Even though I know i'm ready for my first kiss its okay if your not and if ur bf trys to force u into it just tell him that if he keeps on forcing u to do it you'll leave him or something. I'm sure he'll stop then if he really like you.

Hey K.D.!!!
I think your bf should understand if he really cares about you. If not he really isn't worth spending time with. If he doesn't understand just tell him your sorry but you want someone who cares. But if he doesn't understand and you really want him to still be your bf, telling him what I just said in the previous sentence might get him to try harder for you.
Hope I helped!!!

jen age 14
i have had a kiss before actully 6 times before. i know how it feels and it is actully pretty nice if it is with the hottest guy ever ( awesome feeling ) . My advice go into a coner alone somewhere mabey after school and talk to him and calmly say that you think he is an awesome guy very funny attractive and very smart and just say that you are really not ready although say that it would fell great to kiss you . also you can mabey ask him to an upcoming dance and mabey you will be ready then . ( at our school the bf and gf kissing place is at the far fire hidrent, cool huh)well so you know now that i have kissed alot of boys already and have been throught this situation before so i know alot about boys.one tip if you ignore a boy they will want to get your attention but you have to laugh at all there jokes and if they keep looking at you just look down and kinda make a half smile and half straight face then look down to the side then look at him again then look down and to your friend beside you and start talking again. hope this helps

if your not ready to kiss then dont kiss him ..... wen he trys to make his move tel him this: "look, i like you and all but im just not ready, i hope you understand " trust me been there done that and he understood it took a few months but we felt more comfortable together and we desided to take it to a higher level but you dont have to dont get pressured into this

Look here, if he tries to kiss you and you've told him not to, then he's just using you. Break up ASAP if that happens! Then when you get your first smooch (and your ready) it'll be the best feeling in the world!!!

in like the first grade, my bff was kissed! not lip lock, but a kiss on the cheek! it was this kid named jeremy (not his real name, im trying to protect his indentity even though he moved away in the second grade.) anyways, he swooped her down like the way people do when theyre doin the tango and kissed her on the cheek. he also said that she should never ever tell anyone but her loyal friends (thats me) about the kiss. he was so into her he gave her so many presents that i think i might have one cuz she didnt want one! rotflol! lol lol lol!!!!!!!!!!!

I am the exact opposite to the original question. I really sooooooooooo badly want to have a proper first kiss but my last boyfriend didn't really even say hello to me cause he was to shy so I dumped him. I've never kissed someone help! Its hard to find someone my age (10) who is willing to go out with anyone let alone me WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

This comment is for "no boyfriend ):(" and I know you posted about 2 months ago but I've got some advice for you. I'm in 6th grade (I'm 11) and kissing is something people usually do when they are older. I think you should ask your mom. Some moms won't let their kids date until 8th grade or high school (aka my mom). If your mom says you can have a boyfriend or kiss a guy this while you are this age, then go for it! If mom says "not until high school" then you have to wait.

If you're not ready for your 1st kiss than just tell him that and if he stops being friends with you than just ignore it because the most important thing about a relationship isn't kissing.OKAY

I thought i wasnt ready either but one night me + my bf and some friends were playing tig in the dark and he grab me and we just kissed once you've done it once then you do it all the time.
Dont be nerouse about it just go with the flow and if he makes a moved on you then just tell him wait am not ready for this yet and if he really loves you then he will under stand
Hope this helped
Good Luck

Dear K.D,

If you really don't want to kiss your bf don't.When a person isn't ready to do that it makes it a mistake and not good. Follow my advice and don't do it. If he get mad forget about that. Just do what you think is right!

You should save your kiss until you are at least engaged or if this is the guy God tells you that you should marry (or if you don't believe in God, that you are very sure you will marry). I'm sure your first kiss is very wonderful, i've never had one before. I probably won't till I find the guy I am sure I will marry. If you want to kiss but know you should save it (like me) ha ha ha you could just kiss a mirror or something!! lolololololololol!!!! JK but you can practice on a mirror!!! Or something else. Like a wall. In your room, of course.
Just don't do it in the bathroom mirror! When someone takes a shower it fogs up and you can see the kiss marks. It's embarrassing :) lol

If you're not ready to kiss or get kissed, tell him just that: "I'm sorry, but I'm not ready to be kissed yet." If you're too shy to confront him directly, try something like this: If he tries to kiss you, just take a step back and change the subject. I haven't had a first kiss yet, so I'm not sure how he'll react.
