How important is kissing in a relationship? Any romantic relationship?
Long after my [ex-]wife outlawed sex, she still liked to exchange the greeting and parting kiss. Since then kisses have become incredibly rare. Last year, before the COVID, I experienced getting kissed on a couple of one-and-only meetings with women who had zero interest in seeing me again. I've come to recognize the kiss as the kiss off.
What are we talking about, quick pecks, or deep toe curling bum squeezers which make you almost cum? I don't think the quick pecks are that important, but doing without the other is like a meal without meat: especially as it's likely that anyone who won't kiss probably won't go down either.
