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!

    Ive been in a fwb relatiobship with a man for the past 4 months. Things changed between us and I fell hard for him. He started caring forbme as well. He is afraid of getting hirt again as his ex dumped him and he even still had some feelings for her. He is confused about the situation and is in his man cave making decisions about his life and me. The thing is when we are together there is so much passion, linking fingers, kissing and he always kisses me repeatedly on the forehead or temple. We spent time together yesterday and after being intimate he held me so close in bed, hugged me tight and repeatedly kissedy temple even tho we were both at times dozing on and off. He has notbtold me he loves me. Says he cares. Is he feeling more but not being honest with me? When we’re apart he seems so distant over twxt messaging. He did not message me lastnight. Ideas? Please!

      It is certainly possible that he feels close to you. He may even want to develop a stronger relationship with you. It seems as though he is answering questions in his mind at this time. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Try to move the relationship into something more serious. If he is unwilling to do that, then ask him what his goal for your relationship is. Have a great day, Theresa!

    I just slept with a guy who I’ve known for a while. We’ve been friends and whenever we meet he would tell me about those girls who he kind of has relationships with (there are always a few).
    After we slept together, he was cuddling and kissed me twice on my forehead. Throughout the night he was cuddling and hold my hand. He didn’t let me out of his arm. I didn’t expect him to be that way. I thought he would just turn his back to me after sleeping together.
    That night supposed to be only for fun but it turned out to be the most beautiful night I’ve had in my life. I’m trying to keep it as beautiful memories and not to fall for him.

      It is certainly possible that he cares deeply for you and may be interested in developing a relationship with you. Just because someone has had numerous relationships with other people, it does not mean that he is incapable of developing a relationship with you. Since you have been friends for a while, perhaps it would be best for you to speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. This will give him a chance to share himself with you as well. It is possible that he wants to developing a lasting relationship with you. Have a great day, Sara!

      Do not allow your dreams to cause you to doubt. This dream is simply a reflection of your worries and concerns. It would be best for you to take this time to determine what you want to say to your love interest. Try to spend additional time with him to share your thoughts and feelings with him. Have a great day, Lucy!

    Hey wondering if any of you can help shed some insight. As this is my first real relationship
    So me and my recent boyfriend have been together now for about 3 months.
    He is always cuddly before and after we are together. He plays with my hair and kisses my forehead a lot. And sometimes he hugs me really hard to him but im not sure what that could mean.

    But he is not the best at talking about his feelings and as its so new i dont want to rush him to say how he feeling. After he kisses me and the times i catch him he always breaks a smile. And he does say he miss me when im not there both in person and text.

    Just wondering if anyone can help me sort of sum up what he might be feeling. And whether the way he kisses my forhead could be a sign that he is starting to get deeper feelings then lust for me .

      If he has a wife, then you should end this relationship. Be clear with him for the reason why that you do not want to be in a relationship with him at this time. If he is married, then he probably will not be leaving her for you. It would be unwise for you to make a relationship goal with someone who is already in a marriage. Have a great day, Halima!

    I got a forehead kiss by someone I’ve been seeing for over 2 yrs…him stressed out and I’m sick with cold. As we lay in silence he kissed my forehead. I felt it. It was as if my heart was about to explode. As time has gone on I’ve found myself deeply in love with him yet still trying to take it slow due to past disappointments and how complex life is.This kiss was shocking to me. Its like no other jester one could give. W/o words I felt his heart. Some serious stuff. I felt secure, loved and most of all seen. This was the most powerful jester ever conveyed to me ever, or maybe because I care for him so much it hit so deeply. felt it right in my heart. My heart just got so big. Never known it would have such an affect, but it did w/o any words he said so much! I’ll never forget that feeling.

      The dream shows the type of gesture and love you would like to experience with your partner. You want him to be there for you no matter how sick or cold you are. Overall, the dream just shows the way you wish that things could be. There is no reason they can’t be like though in real life as long as you both work toward making your relationship like that. Good luck, Royalt!

    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

      March 7, 2017 at 3:16 pm

      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. πŸ™‚ 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. πŸ™‚

      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.
