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 have this guy friend (who is also my crush), who kissed me on my head, (not my forehead), while I was hugging him goodbye. I’m curious as to what this means because he knows I have been going through a hard time lately with another boy I like, but at the same time he also knows I like him. Thanks!

      He has given you a kiss, which is likely an indication of his emotional connection with you. He is aware of your feelings for him and he wants you to feel happy. If you are currently in a relationship, then continue to nourish this friendship. If you are single, then determine what you want for your future. Perhaps spend additional time with this person, as this will help to strengthen this relationship. Have a great day, Nina!

      His kiss was a reflection of his strong emotional connection with you. He may have meant the kiss as a supportive gesture. The two of you are both in relationships, so abstain from intimate physical contact with him. Continue to share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. If the two of you find yourselves single in the future, then nourish your relationship with him at that time. Have a great day, Anesthesa!

      Your thoughts and feelings are reflections of your previous emotional connection with your ex. The two of you are no longer in a relationship, and he is maintaining a relationship with someone else at this time. You will find benefit in allowing thoughts of him to fade. Ensure that you do not attempt to harm his relationship, as this will only cause suffering. Have a great day, Dy!

    today I received my first kiss on the forehead from my boyfriend I was shock because we kiss before but this one was different when he did it. the reason for that is because he is not so expressive with me a lot and it just shock me. reading this made me feel better about it now I know what it means because he does have a wall build up from his previous relationship. so I have taken precatious steps to let him see that I do love him

    I didn’t know how special this kiss is until I read this! Thank you.
    I love giving my Boyfriend tons of kisses on his lips and I am wondering why he loves kissing my forehead. 😍
    I had 6 boyfriends before and he is the only one who does it, especially when we cuddle. What else can I ask for?

    My boyfriend is your typical Scorpio male…he doesn’t express his feelings verbally, but shows them with his actions. He has a very busy schedule, but will make time for me-regardless of how exhausted he is. The other night while together, we had a discussion about other guys and how I could be with anyone that I want. He was thankful that I chose to be there with him. I told him the difference between him and them is that he has my heart. He held me really tight and kissed my forehead. He held me until we both dozed off. That was the best feeling ever. I felt loved, even without words.
