The First Kiss Project

A short while ago I wrote a blog post about my first kiss. Expunging this woefully embarrassing tale from my memory was both hilarious and cathartic; so much so that I now think about that time of
uncertainty, skittishness and, ultimately, embarrassment with only warmth and fondness. With this in mind, I wanted to create a space where the equally mortified could share their embarrassing / electrifying tales; and so, the First Kiss Project was born.

No matter how together we may be as fully-fledged adults, at one point in our lives, each of us experience that synonymous moment of vulnerability. That exhilarating few seconds that transform you from a perfectly normal person to a bumbling mess of nerves and excitement, lingering on the possibility of what might happen next.

So, whether yours is a tale of romance and excitement or cringe-worthy mortification, I invite you to share it with me. Come on now, don't be shy. We need more love in the world, so join the First Kiss Project and tell me about your first real smooch :)

To share you first kiss story, tweet me @cocoapatootie and use the hashtag #firsttkissproject or #fkp. Or you can get in touch via email at
