According to some scientists, it is believed that kissing is more important to women than it is to men. Women actually use kissing to determine the suitability of their partner. Kissing is beneficial because it helps you bond, promotes good health, can be used as an escape, to convey a message, as an apology and just for the fun of it. It is sometimes difficult to distinguish between the different types of kisses. There are seven different types of kissing that we will explain to help you understand and improve your relationships.

Cheek Kiss

Kissing someone on the cheek is a simple gesture that everyone uses from friends to couples in serious long-term relationships. It’s an act of love, or sometimes used to show that you have had a good time with someone like receiving a kiss on the cheek after a date. Women use this kiss by slowly leaning in to show interest. One can add more affection to this kiss by resting their hands on the other person.
