What Does It Mean When a Guy Kisses Your Forehead?

By on August 26, 2016

Today we’re going to talk about none other than the forehead kiss. Everyone loves to recieve this type of kiss, whether it’s coming from a boyfriend, a friend, or even a family member; and that’s what is so remarkable about a forehead kiss: it isn’t limited to an intimate relationship, but the feeling you get from recieving this type of kiss is all the same. It gives us a feeling of love, comfort, and feeling as though we are the most special person in the world. But what exactly does it mean when a GUY kisses your forehead?


He’s Taller than You

Okay, so this may seem kind of funny, but it’s true. If you’re dating someone who is taller than you, he may simply kiss you on your forehead because it’s a shorter distance than bending all theway down to reach your lips. It doesn’t make it any less significant, but it certainly is easier for a taller man to give you a quick kiss on the forehead than anything more. He will probably do it often, and when the two of you are in a rush. He will certainly do this type of kiss when the two of you are standing. So, consider the guy you are dating: is he significantly taller than you are? Then he may just be being ‘lazy’, or perhaps more comfortable, by giving you a kiss on the forehead.

He Just Likes It

Perhaps this guy just really likes your forehead? Maybe he just likes this type of kiss? As with everything else in life, men have a preference on kisses too. Some guys may be more into making out or kissing on the cheek, but his favorite could definitely be on the forehead. If he kisses you there often, it could be a sign that he just loves to kiss his ladies forehead- nothing wrong with that, right? I’m sure there’s no complaining coming from your side!

He Respects You

Did you know that a forehead kiss can actually be a sign of respect? It shows that he isn’t just trying to ‘get in your pants’, so to speak, as a man that’s only interested in hooking up won’t bother kissing you in a sweet, delicate spot such as your forehead; he will probably be wanting deep kisses on the lip and neck.



He Deeply Cares About You

The forehead kiss is just simply one of the sweetest kisses out there. Of all the kisses, it’s the one kiss that makes you feel as though you are truly cared for. So, that being said, if a guy is kissing you on the forehead, he truly cares about you and wants you to know the depth of his caring. He knows that a forehead kiss will make you feel loved, and that’s why he does it.

He is Protective of You

A forehead kiss can certainly mean a lot of different things, but one of the biggest signals a forehead kiss shows is that he is protective of you. He holds you tight and kisses you on the forehead: he is trying to show you that you are HIS and ONLY his, and he will do anything to protect you. In this manner, it is actually a kiss that holds a lot of meaning and is actually very powerful. This type of kiss will usually be done when the two of you are alone, and having a romantic ‘moment’ so to speak. The mood will be calm, he will have his arms wrapped around you, and he will kiss you gently on the lips while holding you tight. You, of course, will feel secure, and the forehead kiss will seal the deal on security and feeling of being protected by your man.


He Loves You

A lot of kisses can mean that he loves you, but there is just something so sensual about a forehead kiss. Yes, it means he cares and respects you, but it also means that he loves you. He loves you so much that he doesn’t need to do anything else but this simple kiss. He knows that you will love this type of kiss, so there’s really no better option when it comes to kissing to show utmost affection, adoration, and LOVE.

We all love forehead kisses, especially when it comes from our boyfriend, fiance, or husband. These kisses can mean a lot of different things, but for the most part it is a symbol of affection and love. It shows that he respects you to the fullest and cares for you deeply. It is a sign that he wants to guard you and protect you. Do you love getting forehead kisses? How do you feel when you recieve one of these lovely kisses? Share with us your thoughts below!

    My boyfriend of 9 months has recently started the forehead kiss a few days ago. We nearly broke up in January because of his lack of commitment and he has been doing better with expressing his feeling in hoping he is sealing the deal with the forehead kiss to show me he loves me because that’s how it makes me feel loved and protected.what do you think?

      Your feelings are probably accurate. He cares for you and wants you to know his feelings. If you want to allow your relationship to flourish, then let him know that you appreciate his actions. The more that you let him know that you care about him, the more that he will show you that he cares about you. Have a great day, Tracy!

    what does it mean when a friend of mines, a boy, who’s taller than me, hugs me from behind and kisses the top of my head, not my forehead but just the top of my head? Also if it helps, he did it after our group won a competition that we were all anxious about… He also is very touchy and hugs me all the time

      Because he is so touchy and hugs you, you can rest assured that he is interested in establishing a relationship with you. If you do not want him to touch you, then be clear about your concerns with his actions. If you want him to hug you more, then hug him back. Try to spend time with him and establish a relationship with him if you want to do so. Best of luck, Alice!

      That’s okay. 🙂 Some people feel more natural kissing on the forehead, or on the lips or somewhere else. As long as he cares for you and treats you well, it is not a problem. 🙂

      He was probably just kissing you without thinking very much about it. If you are in a friends/friends with benefits relationship, then that is all that he is expecting. While the kiss may show some affection for you, it is doubtful that he plans on changing your relationship status.

      He clearly cares for you. If you want him to change his way of showing his love, then be clear with your thoughts. Enjoy these kisses. Have a great day, Tiffany!
