I have to credit a friend for this one. Let me elaborate. I was waiting on my current boyfriend, when we first started dating, to make the first move. (I am not big on making the first move). I didn’t want to openly just tell him to kiss me (takes the fun out of it). So my friend suggested, Graze the Cheek!
This works for either sex. It gives a sign to the other person that you want them to kiss you.
So what is Graze the Cheek?
When you are going in for a hug at the end of the night, you will graze the cheek of the other person as you separate yourself from the hug. You graze your cheek across their cheek intimately and slowly. (Graze– literally means: touching the surface lightly when it passes it). Once the graze is complete, this should prompt the other person to lock their lips with yours.
Don’t worry if it doesn’t work the first time, try it again next time and be more graze-ful.
