Do you remember your first kiss with the person you are with right now? My first kiss with Balazs happened 13+ years ago. It sealed the deal! Anyway, when this morning I watched this beautiful little short by Tatia who is a filmmaker I started to think how much it actually lays in the first kiss.
Here is what she did: she paired up 20 strangers and given no instructions, other than to lock lips while she filmed them! That is all.
The beautiful thing was that seconds before the kiss you can see the awkwardness, the little uncomfortable chatter, the butterflies, the nervous laughter and my favourite, the shyness - just like in real life situations! As soon as the chemistry starts brewing and one makes the first move, you can totally see the connection - if the kiss is good. Plus, the body language afterwards is the sweetest thing ever. It seals the deal or it becomes one of the most awkward and cringing 60 seconds of your life. (I had a few of those and they are not great).
I love how something so simple like a kiss showcases the vulnerable true human emotion. I’m still smiling, so watch it, tell me what you think and go kiss someone you love in a way that you haven't before :) Deal? xo
P.S: My first ever kiss:)
P.P.S: Date-night moves and do you believe in love at first sight?
