A kiss on the forehead

A kiss on the forehead

Of all the types of kisses, (steamy hot ones or slow and gentle), forehead kisses hit the spot like nothing else for me. 

When a guy kisses your forehead, it certainly evokes completely different feelings to when he kisses your lips. This form of love is mixed with love; there are elements of comfort, safety, and relaxation.

I don’t know a girl who doesn’t love forehead kisses, but you may also wonder what it means when a guy kisses your forehead, right?

The truth is, there are different meanings (now every woman/man should desire forehead kisses!).

Why do forehead kisses feel so great?

I’m a big fan of forehead kisses, might I add again!


I think forehead kisses make me melt more than a kiss on the lips! there’s something very warm and cozy about a guy gently pressing his lips against the forehead, lingering…and then slowly pulling away.

Then, there’s the other type, a quick short burst of kisses on your forehead, almost like what you’d give to a child or a cute pet. These are more playful, but they still feel amazing.

But why so dreamy and good?

One of the reasons might stem back to our childhoods. Parents, grandparents, and even siblings may kiss one another on the forehead, especially at bedtime or when a child is sick.

Forehead kisses show a lot of love, sympathy, comfort, and affection, and this stays with us into adulthood.

Now, as an adult, when your husband/wife kisses your forehead all those lovely feelings come rushing back. No wonder they’re so addictive!

They comfort you and make you feel safe!

Another reason forehead kisses feel so great is that there isn’t a sexual element to them.

When a guy kisses your forehead, he’s not usually hinting at sex like if he kisses your lips or your body. The non-sexualization of forehead kisses make it feel even more special, because you know he’s doing it out of genuine love and care.

There’s also the interesting concept of the pineal gland. When someone kisses your forehead area it activates this gland (which is placed in the lower center of the forehead) it is believed that when kissed, the melatonin hormone is released which helps you sleep.

The pineal gland is also seen (as I refer to it), as the gateway to the soul. So essentially, when a guy kisses your forehead, he’s connecting his soul with yours.

And the final reason forehead kisses are awesome?

They make you feel respected.

Whether you’ve just started dating or you’ve been together for years, his kiss on your forehead shows that you mean a lot to him and he holds you in high regard.


What do forehead kisses mean?

1) He respects you

Is there a better feeling than knowing your significant other respects you?

It’s an essential part of any relationship or friendship, and knowing that you have someone’s respect can go a long way in making you feel good about yourself and the relationship.

And sometimes this can take you by surprise, especially if you’ve just started dating the individual.

2) He cares about you

If you’ve had a bad day or you’re feeling under the weather, a forehead kiss is an effective way to show you he cares.

The truth is:

If he feels like his words can’t soothe you when you’re feeling down, he’ll go for the next best option – a warm, comforting kiss on the forehead.

It’s his way of showing that you mean a lot to him and he’s by your side whatever you’re going through (let’s face it, sometimes you might not be in the mood to talk, so a forehead kiss makes up for it).

3) He loves you for more than just your body

And that leads me to the second point – a forehead kiss can show that he values you more than just physically.

It can also be a way of making you feel secure in the relationship. If you’re not worrying that he’s just using you for your body, you’re free to enjoy hanging out knowing there are no hidden agendas.

Here’s the thing:

When a guy forehead kisses you, it’s not the same as when he makes out with you. There’s less sexual satisfaction involved for him, so it shows that he genuinely feels affection for you and wants nothing more than your company.

He loves you for who you are, and a forehead kiss proves it.

4) You share a deep connection

Now, if you’re lucky enough to have found someone with who you share a deep, powerful bond, there’s a good chance he’ll express his love through forehead kisses.

Maybe it goes back to the idea of the souls connecting through the pineal gland…you share a connection and when he kisses your forehead, he gets to soak in all of you and truly experience the love you share.

5) He wants to comfort you

Whether you’re dealing with day-to-day problems or a stressful day, if he’s all about the forehead kisses, he’s trying his best to comfort you.

He knows that not only will it make you relax, but you’ll unwind and get things off your chest. His goal is to make you feel as calm as possible and take away whatever is troubling you.

And for better or worse, he might even do it after an argument.

If he’s messed up and he wants to reinforce his apology, he might kiss your forehead to show his remorse and to comfort you because he knows you’re upset.

6) He wants to protect you

When you’re afraid, even if it’s just because of a scary movie you shouldn’t have watched two nights ago, he’ll make you feel safe by kissing your forehead.

Just like putting his arm around you when you cross the road or giving you his jacket when you’re cold, he wants you to know that you can rely on him for protection.

After all, who doesn’t want to feel secure with their partner?

And, if you’re not already a couple, the fact that he’s giving you forehead kisses shows that he likes you more than a friend.

7) He finds you cute

Yes!! Theres something about cuteness!!!

Whether it’s your boyfriend when he wakes up all innocent and sleepy or your adorable dog, there’s no denying that cuteness attracts lots of affection.

And forehead kisses are the ultimate sign of affection.

So, when a guy kisses your forehead, it’s because he can’t resist you. He finds you adorable and he just can’t get enough of kissing your entire face (but especially the forehead). 

And, many times we model the behavior we want to see given to us.

So if he’s very loving, affectionate, and gives you forehead kisses, it could be that he’s hoping he’ll get some of the love in return.

Just in the same way that you feel comforted and relaxed, he also wants to feel the same way. And since you know how great it is, don’t forget to share the love!

And if it’s a guy you like, giving him a forehead kiss might just spark him into action – it’s worth a shot.

The bottom line is:

If you feel any of the things listed above for him, like respect, care, and protectiveness, don’t hold back on showering him with plenty of forehead kisses too.

Not only will it strengthen your connection, but you’ll feel more intimate and he’ll get a chance to experience all those feel-good emotions that come with it too.
