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!

    I was doubting a lot as to what does kissing on the forehead mean since ive open this page. My husband and I had just celebrated our 23rd year wedding ann8versary last july 18 and ever since we’ve married, he is really kissing me on my forehead especially when he goes to work and when he arrives home. I feel so loved and blessed. Praise God.

    I’ve liked the guy since like forever but just when we were getting really close,he had some issues and he couldn’t be around me anymore,so things got awkward and we don’t really talk anymore but there was this one time he gave me a kiss on my forehead and we had our intimate moments together but not sex,I’m confused cos he kissed my forehead only once and we were that close for over 10years,was he on the verge of moving from that “I like her so much” to “I love her” and then the whole thing stopped,and I also want to know if there’s a way I can find out if he still loves me,we talk but not like we used to

      If the two of you stopped talking, then your relationship may have already ended. However, if you believe that the two of you can be together again, then reach out to him. If he is unable or unwilling to develop a relationship with you at this time, then perhaps you should allow him to fade into the past. This will give you a chance to focus on the present and make plans for the future. This will help you order your life. Have a great day, Jane!

    I’ve been having casual sex with a younger guy for 4 months. I’m early 30’s. Recently he has become more affectionate after sex. He said he likes looking at me. Cuddling, stroking my face and hair and kissing my forehead. He told me he is not sleeping around as he’s looking for a girlfriend. Then he said I should be warned as he might fall in love with me. Im confused as we only meet for sex, no dates.

      The two of you may have met for sexual purposes only, yet it seems that he has developed feelings for you. This is normal. If you want to develop a relationship with him, then let him know. If you do not, then be direct and clear about your feelings. You do not need to develop a relationship with him if you do not want to do so. Have a great day, Emma!

      If she meant scared, then she may be concerned about your intentions. Your best option is to speak directly and honestly with her about your thoughts and feelings. If she chose the wrong word, then she may feel intimidated or concerned about her own feelings. The best way for you to deal with her concerns is to try to speak with her in person. Best of luck, Sam!

          If she is married, then move on. Do not attempt to establish a relationship with her. There is nothing positive that will come from you attempting to develop a relationship with her. Good day, Sam.

    Me and this guy have had sex off and on for 16 years at first it was just a booty call but I noticed subtle changes the past, few years. As of most recently maybe the past year we’ve been intimate more than we’ve ever been. Before anything gets started he’ll stroke my hair back and kiss my forehead as we’re laying together. He also likes to spoon when we sleep. What should I make of all this?

      He is developing stronger feelings for you. This should be expected. Continue to develop your relationship with him to see what develops. You may want to speak directly and honestly with him about your feelings. This will give him a chance to share himself with you as well. It is clear that the two of you are compatible on some level, so your relationship already has a strong foundation. Best of luck, Elle!

    My x of 12 year’s and i have been separate for 2 and a half years now. he is the love of my life.he would always kiss my forehead throw out the 12years together but he has remarried now and has a child in this relationship we still see each other on and off because of our child that we have together and when he leaves after visiting our son he gives me a kiss on the forehead he never tells me he loves me he just tells me forever recently we hooked up because he is having relationship problems in his marriage they got separated. After we were intimate with each other he kissed me on the forehead and held me really tightly he told me he will love me forever.I told him I loved him as well but I also told him we can’t be doing this cuz I don’t know if he’s going to leave his current wife or not do you think our relationship will work out again or should we just leave each other alone💔😢😞😕

      It probably is not going to work out again. Most people take years to leave their wife or never do it. Whatever you broke up for before, the same problem would still exist. This intimate moment most likely occurred because he is having problems in his current marriage and you are someone that he already felt close to. He still cares for you, of course, but that does not mean that you will end up together again. 🙁 Good luck, Irma!

    I’ve been in an intimate relationship with this guy for few months. I have never received a forehead kiss from him. I paid him a visit yesterday and he told me he wants to take away the sexual aspect of the relationship for some reason. Honesty I felt heartbroken and I left disappointed. He came to see me to make sure am alright then he gave me the forehead kiss as he was leaving. I argued and he asked me to read it up, that’s why am here. Pls, am I in this for good or you think there might be something wrong and I should take to my heels?

      It is possible that he just respects you and does not want to hurt you by moving the relationship along too fast. If he is trying to cut back on the sexual intimacy, it may be because he has started to have serious feelings for you and is afraid of damaging the relationship by allowing it to go too fast. I wouldn’t “take to your heels” just yet. He may just want to be more respectful and take the relationship slower, so don’t panic just yet. Good luck, Duly!

        We’ve had sex many times and it was good. So taking it out is where my doubt lie
        That’s why I asked if I should “take to my heels.”

          He may just want to take things slow. I would give it another couple of weeks and see if that is the reason. If he acts oddly or doesn’t seem as interested, then take to your heels. It may be a little premature to leave just yet, unless you just don’t want to deal with the relationship anymore.
