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!

      This behaviors are clear indications that he has strong feelings for you. This may not mean that he loves you, but he does care about you. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well.

    I’m now confused. A friend of mine kissed me on the forehead and even held my hand when we were walking and we are not even in a relationship. What does this mean? Should I ask what’s the real score?

      Each friendship is different. If this is what you normally do as friends, then you may just have a close friendship. If you think it might mean something more or you want to be more than friends, then you could always ask. Good luck!

    The guy I have messed around with for a few years now lives in a different state now. He has been in town for the past several days and for the first time he kissed me on the forehead when he was going to work. I am still confused but hoping all the signs point to what the article says.

      It is possible he sees you as more serious than just a fling. All you can do is wait and see what happens. Good luck! I hope everything works out for you!

      Since he doesn’t talk to you anymore, it seems quite likely that he doesn’t want to pursue a relationship anymore. There’s no way to know what the real reason was. It might be annoying to never know why, but you can’t do anything to really change the situation. All you can do now is move on. Good luck!

      If he asks you a lot of serious relationship questions like what kind of marriage you want to have, then it sounds like he may be considering a relationship with you. Either that, or you have the world’s best, best friend. My guess is that he is interested in you on some level.

    My boyfriend kisses me on the forehead all the time, especially when he’s holding me in his arms and it makes me feel super protected and loved and safe. I think forehead kisses are some of my favorite kisses, theres such an intimacy and feeling of love about them, especially when it’s from someone you really love💙

    So the guy I am crushing on is my best friend and he is constantly hugging me and kissing my forehead – when we hang out alone and in public, in front of our other friends. I have only ever seen him do it to one other girl, but he does it to me a lot. I can’t tell if this is him trying to send me some kind of sign. Should i reciprocate that action? Like if he kisses my forehead, should I kiss his cheek? I dont know what I am doing lol.

      I’m not sure–it really depends on your personal situation and what you feel comfortable with. Normally, I’d say that this is a definite sign that he likes you, but you also said that he does it to another girl. If you feel comfortable with it, you could try kissing his cheek and seeing how he responds.

    I have been seeing this guy for a few years and he doesn’t talk about his feelings every blue moon he may manage to tell me he miss me or he cares about me but nothing beyond that. The first time I told him I loved him we was done being intimate and I slipped out and told him while I was falling asleep I felt him kiss me on my forehead. I told him I loved him again this time awake and alert to his face and he looked at me then hugged me real close and tight to him and kissed me on my forehead. But if I tell him in a message he doesn’t say anything

      It is clear that you feel that you love him, and his behaviors indicate that he cares strongly for you. He may not love you, but it is certain that he wants you to be happy. Nourish this connection by spending additional time with him in person. This may cause his feelings for you to grow in the future. Do not push him away, as this relationship has a chance of growing in a positive direction.

    So, I’ve been having sex with this guy for a while now… we both say there’s nothing to it. He calls me the same nickname he calls everyone else so I think nothing of it. Suddenly, he started paying close attention to the way I text him, like he notices if I am feeling something other than happiness. He started calling me baby and baby girl and babe and teases me constantly because he likes knowing only he can make me blush.. well, during sex he did something he’s never done before. He looked me in the eyes, smiled, and leaned in. I though he’s kiss my lips since he slowed down, basically stopping the session. Instinctively, I closed my eyes and waited for his lips to touch mine, but his lips ended up on my forehead. I was confused about why, but I didn’t want him to think I was overthinking the situation. He kissed my forehead, a slow almost loving kiss. My ex used to kiss me like that. So, I’m confused. Maybe it’s his way of saying he respects me. Maybe it means he sees me as more than someone to fool around with. I can’t read his emotions the way I do with others. Help. You can ask me any questions to help me with this burning question. (I’m using my friends iCloud account since I use her phone)

    I have feelings for a friend and he is super cute and kind with me. Today he hugged me super tight and kissed my forehead. On other days he hugs and tells me very cute stuff. But sometimes when we are near a friend that liked me in the pass he just ignores me. What those this mean?

    I’m guilty on this one. I tried to cup her face and kissed her in the forehead.
    Later that moment i recall that she is pointing her lips towards mine but i point it upward and go for the forehead kiss. Did i reject her on that way?

      Your ex cared for you. When the relationship ended, there may have been many reasons for his decision to not enter into a new relationship. He may have been thinking about you. He may have been unable to find a partner. He may have been focusing on himself. Allow thoughts of him to fade. If he reaches out to you in the future, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings at that time. Have a great day, Plac!

          It doesn’t necessarily mean anything positive or negative. If he is your boyfriend, it is safe to say that he likes you and wants to continue being with you. I wouldn’t read too much into it because it definitely shows that he feels affection towards you.
