I’m concerned you might not be a student of Philematology.
Several noted scientists have become Philematologists: Cesare Lombroso, Elaine Hatfield, Charles Darwin.
I believe studying Philematology will strengthen your relationship. Studying with your sweetheart will bring more romance into your relationship.
What is Philematology? The study of kissing – defined as:
- “The act of pressing one’s lips against another person.” (Wikipedia)
- “To touch or press with the lips slightly pursed, then part them and emit a smacking sound.” (Dictionary.com)
Historically, Philematologists say the first known written descriptions of mouth-to-mouth kissing are found 3,000 years ago in the Indian poem, “Mahabharata”, and in the Old Testament “Songs of Solomon”.
Kissing in your relationship has become as stale as a scientific study of Philematology or sterile as a dictionary definition.
It’s routine, a throwaway act – hardly even a “hi”.
It hasn’t always been this way though, has it?
- Remember your first kiss?
- Remember the first time you kissed your sweetheart?
I do. I can still tell you the exact date, location and first girl I kissed. It was exciting. It left me with a warm fuzzy. I knew the relationship had taken on a new meaning.
Truth is, you really can’t maintain the electricity of the first kiss in a long term relationship. And a bit of routine kissing in the relationship is not bad.
For instance, my sweetheart and I meet at the door with a kiss. After saying grace, we kiss. These “routine” kisses are part of our relationship – yet they’re also special.
How do I know they’re special? I’d miss one if it didn’t happened
Would I miss the “routine” kiss if it didn’t happen?
If your answer is yes, those kisses are still special. Don’t forget that. Go ahead and let them be routinely special. Robert
