Why Won’t My Boyfriend Kiss Me?

Why Won’t My Boyfriend Kiss Me?

Are you frustrated wondering why your boyfriend won’t kiss you? Imagine, you had a lovely dinner, great conversation, and he drives you home. You pull up in your driveway, the anticipation builds for that goodbye kiss and yet again, you are left with a simple good night.  Let’s explore the real reasons behind the question why won’t my boyfriend kiss me.

Starting A New Relationshipnew relationship

The beginning of a new relationship can be tough to navigate. These first milestones for a new couple can set the tone of the entire relationship. So yes, it is a big deal if he hasn’t kissed you yet, and it is okay to be frustrated. My name is Ashley Rodrigues. As a licensed mental health therapist, I work with individuals to try to better their quality of life and build better relationships.

The Boy I Like Won’t Kiss Me

The first question I would ask is “Does your boyfriend know that he is your boyfriend?” Please don’t get offended. In the age of texting, social media, and casual hookups we’ve lost the art of the “relationship defining conversation”. Rarely do couples sit down and discuss whether or not they are officially boyfriend and girlfriend, or whether they are exclusively dating. I know it is awkward, but it will open up the lines of communication that will help your relationship lasting in the future. It is possible you are waiting for a kiss from your boyfriend that has no idea he is supposed to be making that move. Save yourself the frustration and the tension in the relationship and talk it out.

My Boyfriend Won’t Kiss Me

If you have already established with your significant other that you are exclusively together, perhaps your loved one is unsure of you wanting that kiss. The fear of rejection can be debilitating, so warm your boyfriend up to the idea. Any physical touch can indicate that you are ready for the first kiss and minimize the chances of rejection. Grab his hand, or touch his arm at dinner. Drop subtle hints so he knows that you are ready for that next step.

Talk About Ittalking it out

If your partner is pulling back from physical intimacy it can be a signal that there is something deeper going on. If the lack of kissing is a shift in behavior, sit down and talk about it. He may want to reevaluate the relationship or he is upset about something else. Instead of discussing it, he is withholding kisses and other forms of physical intimacy.

Communication Is The Answer

Relationships come in many forms. Every situation is different, but I hope this article allows you to look at the situation differently and provides some clarity. There are no set rules to this dating thing, so relax, maybe even make the first move yourself. Go for it!

Are you wondering why he’s not texting you back? Everything was going fine and then he stopped responding. If you are wondering why won’t my boyfriend text me back, I have the answer for you.

Maybe It’s a Bad Day

bad day boyfriend not texting You might be too young (or maybe too old) to remember this, but once upon a time, there was a singer named Monica. She did teenage boys and girls of the early 90’s a huge favor when she released the song, Don’t Take it Personal, filling us in on the fact that other people’s actions don’t always reflect their feelings for us… Of course, then there are the times it is all your fault. We’ll try to figure out which one holds true for you.

Is He My Boyfriend?

First off, are you sure he’s your boyfriend? Unless you’ve set some clear boundaries, mainly talking about the fact that the two of you will not date other people, you may be overestimating your claim on this man. If you have been dating for months, not years, and you’ve texted him an excessive amount of times without a response, rethink the boundaries of your relationship.

How Much Should I Text My Boyfriend?

What’s excessive? If you’ve texted him more than once without a response for more than a day, you need to consider that he might have a different idea of your relationship than you do. That’s okay. Talk it out next time HE contacts YOU. If he doesn’t come crawling back with an explanation for being neglectful, it’s his loss.how much texting?

On the other hand, like Monica preached, sometimes a person just needs some time alone to chill. Perhaps he’s having a bad day, maybe his cat died, feasibly his mom could be sick, and he’s making her chicken soup while she rests in bed. If you have a good guy, you know it. If your relationship has been on steady ground for a while, and he suddenly goes MIA, don’t panic yet. Part of being in a relationship is trusting in your partner, being patient with them, and holding things down when something bad happens. If this is your situation, breathe, meditate, do some yoga, and when he calls you to tell you about his horrendous time of it, you be there for him, like you’d want him to be there for you.

There’s another option though. And, it’s not a good one. How well do you know this guy? Could it be that you just think you know him better than you know your high school BFF? Is there any chance at all that you are the other woman? If he routinely ignores your texts over an extended period of time, and you’ve never been to his home or met his friends or family, there’s a pretty good chance he’s sitting around the dinner table with his wife and kids and unable to respond right away. If he’s married, or dating someone else, it’s time to stop texting and block him. You are too good for that, and he will never leave them for you – nor should you want him to.

I truly hope he’s just having one of those days. If not, you know what to do.

Sending Love,
