Why do people close their eyes when they are kissing?

Do you close your eyes or keep them open? IDK why I've been thinking about this. I think my brain overloaded with all the important stuff I'm supposed to remember that it just shut down and started thinking about random things!

  • I never thought about this, I guess it automatic for a lot of people, I don't keep my eyes open if its a long kiss because I don't want to be staring into someones eyes that close lol and it's just more romantic. If it's just a quick peck then I guess my eyes stay open I don't really know lol. When you've been with someone for so long it's whatever lol. I remember one of my exes used to kiss with his eyes open and it freaked me out I couldn't kiss him without laughing cuz i could sense him staring at me while we were making out lol.

  • So you can enjoy the experience of the kiss without the distraction of staring at someones pores, etc, getting in the way. LOL! I've never thought of this, but I know my preference would be eyes closed.

  • I close mine because I can't cross my eyes, so the blurry double-vision gives me a headache.

  • I agree with what geminilove said. Boy, if I tried to keep my eyes open, that closeness would give me a raging headache. Also, with eyes closed, you can focus more on what you're doing -- smooching -- and not get distracted by "ooh a butterfly" or whatever, and make it more fun.

  • I close and so does dh. Having his face so close to mine makes me go cross eyed and gives me a headache.
