On Bad Kisses

Over on Marie Claire’s site, Hairpin pal Diana Vilibert and Abraham Lloyd ask themselves “Is a Bad First Kiss a Relationship Killer?

The post is entertaining, but should also be literally one word long: “yes.” Bad kisses are like magic portals that once you touch your hand to them all of a sudden everything starts furiously whirling and shifting. You thought he/she was cool, smart, and awesome, but you discover he’s/she’s a bad kisser? Everything shifts. Done. Gone. The planets and moons are whirling as you hold your hand (mouth) to this critical portal and then rapidly draw it back.

Although thankfully bad kissers aren’t objectively bad, as everyone seems to end up with someone, sometimes.
