You want him to be a good kisser, to be compatible with you for a relationship, or kissing with him to lead to a further intimacy?
Most likely this won’t happen and the reason is his bad breath.
No matter how much you like your partner, bad breath while kissing is big a turnoff. And you wish that he knew how to get a good breath before kissing.
Below you’ll find 5 different reasons how kissing with someone with bad breath might disturb you.
But, first, let’s see if kissing someone with bad breath impacts your health.
Can you catch bad breath bacteria while kissing
Bad breath is not a contagious disease and it cannot be transferred to you through kissing.
Most people believe that you can catch bad breath by kissing the same way as you may catch influenza virus by sharing a towel, sipping from the same cup, sharing your toothbrush, or having someone sneezing in your face.
But sharing saliva while kissing doesn’t mean that you also share the bad breath bacteria too.
Bad breath bacteria don’t migrate as a virus does. It stays in your partner’s mouth while kissing.
This doesn’t mean that you may kiss anybody with bad oral hygiene and still be safe. If your immune system breaks down you may catch bad breath or any other kind of disease.
You still need to choose your kissing partner wisely.
At the same time, you want to use natural remedies to prevent yourself from bad breath as well.
How does kissing someone with bad breath affect you
1. Morning kiss
If you’ve spent the night with your partner be aware of the morning breath.
Morning breath is an embarrassing function of your body that dries out your mouth while you sleep.
As a result, you or your partner may not smell like roses when you wake up.
In most cases, morning breath is inevitable.
So, don’t rush to give your loved one a morning kiss. This might upset him or her.
The good thing is that the morning breath can be easily fixed.
Just brush your teeth, clean your tongue, and have a cup of water on an empty stomach. This immediately gets you rid of the morning breath.
2. The person isn’t aware of his bad breath problem and goes in for a kiss
The problem here is that most people are not aware when their breath has gone bad.
Imagine that your partner confidently goes in for the first kiss without being aware that his breath smells bad.
What will you do in this embarrassing situation?
Will you act as if his breath doesn’t disturb you? Or, will you stop the passionate moment and tell him that you don’t like his breath, which may hurt his delicate feelings?
No matter what you choose to do in this case, the fact is that halitosis ruins the pleasure you should have from kissing the person you like.
But, on the other side, it’s not your job to follow whether your partner’s breath is kiss-ready or not.
3. Should you worry about your own health
Kissing someone with bad breath may raise the question of his health.
You may wonder whether you need to worry about yours too.
There are two situations here:
1) When the bad breath from your kissing partner’s mouth is occasional. This may happen to everybody who follows a good oral hygiene but consumed foods or drinks that dried out their mouth before the kiss.
2) When the bad breath from your kissing partner’s mouth is constant which may be a reason of poor oral hygiene or health problem.
If you notice a constant bad smell from your kissing partner’s mouth than you might need to ask why is this happening.
If the bad breath is caused some kind of health problem than you should know what kind of health problem is this and if this is not contagious.
4. Bad breath ruins your desire to build a relationships
When you encounter that your kissing partner has bad breath it leaves a not so good impression about your partner.
The fact that you’ve kissed speaks about a possible chemistry between you both.
If before the kiss you were thinking about a possible continuation of the relationship between you both, then after encountering that your partner has bad breath your desire to continue the relationship with him slightly diminishes.
5. It turns you off
And the biggest problem of all when kissing someone with bad breath is that it turns you off.
All the thoughts about a further relationship, a good time spending, are put under question when you smell how bad his breath is.
There is just no other person in the world that will say that bad breath arouses him.
If you’re kissing someone with bad breath. Tell them. If they’re worth your time, they’ll fix it.
