Why would a guy ever kiss you? Regardless of what excuse you or he made up about why that kiss even took place: kisses happen for a reason!
Whether he said: “he was drunk”, “he just wanted to try” or “he didn’t mean it”, in the end, what makes a man kiss a woman is very obvious and clear. And, if you didn’t know here’s a list of reasons why a man would even dare get close to your lips:
What makes a man want to kiss a woman?
1- He feels physically attracted to you:
Men and women have different physical needs. While women are traditionally attracted to a man’s character, his ability to protect and provide comfort, men are mostly interested in a woman’s physical features, body, beauty, femininity but also personality.
For men, physical attraction is a combination of many different things: body language, scent, voice, facial expressions, and even how you make them feel about themselves. So if you were a little too close physically he might have noticed the beautiful and inviting shape of your lips and simply acted without giving it much thought.
This means he felt physically attracted to you, at that moment in time. He might be generally attracted to you in that way and hiding it. In this case, we recommend checking our article about signs that he is fighting his feelings for you. Or, he might just have had a moment of confusion and not actually be attracted to you in that way, at all.
2- He couldn’t resist your charm:
The first thing that comes to mind when a woman is described as irresistible is something like the way she dresses or the way she looks. However, there are other things that can make a man want to kiss a woman and find her absolutely irresistible. Charisma, femininity, charm, and humor are just a few of them.
There is also something about the way a woman moves and talks that can make her insanely irresistible to the right type of man. So if you’re asking “why did he kiss me if we are just friends?”, you may be acting a little naive here. You probably have seen this coming to some extent. You must’ve felt the tension rising and or physical attraction forming between the two of you, for a few days or weeks at least.
You might have even chosen to discreetly play your cards right and get him hooked. If that’s what happened, then congrats you succeeded and that kiss proves that your game is working. He probably couldn’t resist your little game and seduction dance. Men can be unconsciously very attentive and responsive to a woman’s body language and hints.
If you don’t have a clue what we’re on about and didn’t plan any of it, then believe him when he says: “he didn’t mean to”, or just “was drunk”.
3- He wants to take things to the next level:
Kissing is a way of communicating and expressing emotions that are otherwise hard to convey. It can be an act of passion, love, or just one’s way of telling the other person that they want to explore more than a friendship.
A man might want to kiss a woman because he’s ready to take things to the next level. He might want her to know that he’s ready for more if she’s on the same page as him. If this is the case, then he would’ve probably opened the topic with you after the kiss and explained himself, right? he would’ve told you about his expectations of you and given you time to think and tell him how you feel.
Because who kisses someone to take things to the next level only to act like the kiss never happened, and go back to a more awkward version of their friendship?
4- He probably thought about being with you in a different way:
If a guy has dared to kiss you or initiate some type of physical contact with you, out of the blue when you two are not even romantic like that nor a couple, then it’s a telling sign.
This is a clear sign that he has thought about you in that way before. He probably has wondered a lot about how it would be to be with you, in a physical way. In fact, he has thought about it so much that he is now intrigued and wants to explore it in real life.
He got to the point where he doesn’t care anymore about pretending or “playing friends” because he wants to make all his dreams into reality. If this is the case, then be careful as this doesn’t mean by any means that he would be interested in anything deeper or more meaningful than a physical relationship.
