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!

      Allow this person’s kiss to fade from your thoughts. If he is married, then he should not be kissing you unless you are a relative. It would benefit you to allow thoughts of him to not get a grip on your mind. Instead, remember this kiss as an experience that showed kindness. If you remember this kiss in the future, then remember to act in kindness toward other people. Have a great week, Debbie!

      It is possible that you could be wasting your time–it all depends on how serious he is about not marrying ever. Many people say that when they are young and ultimately change their minds. If what he really means is that he does not want any serious commitment, then you may want to just move on. It would take months or years for him to change his mind and date seriously, so you could end up waiting around forever for a commitment that never appears.

    Last night I received the first kiss on the forehead …ever from a man other than my Dad. It has lingered with me all day. It was the softest, most gentle kiss I have ever experienced. I could not help but wonder why he did this…3 times as we were saying good night and before he left my home. It was the most loving, warm and endearing kiss I have ever had in my life. Today I want to bring him back and do more…..just sayin. I looked this kiss up and found your article. The man has been smitten for quite sometime with me but I have been the one holding back. We have not been intimate yet and that kiss told me that he was ok with that…he just wanted to show affection. Thank-you for such a wonderful article.
