Let’s be honest…
Kissing someone with bad breath is YUCK!!!
You know that moment when your boyfriend is trying to kiss you but the bad taste out of his mouth is turning you off.
As a result, you don’t want to kiss him, make out with him or do anything of that sort with him.
This intimacy gap actually ruins a lot of relationships.
And if your boyfriend doesn't mind kissing you while having bad breath you might be pushed to tell him goodbye.
Below are some of the reasons why this kind of a guy is not for you.
But first, let's see if you can catch bad breath after kissing with someone.
Is bad breath contagious through kissing?
The process of kissing someone with bad breath, in itself, does not transfer the foul bacteria into your mouth.
Bad breath bacteria doesn’t act like viruses, which are easily transferred by simply sharing a cloth or having someone sneezing in your face.
Bad breath is not contagious, if it’s caused by a poor oral hygiene issue, consuming odorous foods or dry mouth.
You may get rid of cigarette breath before having a kiss by simply showering, brushing teeth and wearing clean clothes.
But, on the other hand.
A disease, which causes bad breath, may be transferred to you.
If bad breath is caused by oral thrush, yeast infection or a runny nose, it may be transmitted to you along with the disease itself.
4 ways kissing someone with bad breath may turn you off
A kiss is supposed to arouse you.
But, the problem with bad breath during kissing is the bad experience you have, during the process, that reflects the future relationship with this person.
The below experiences might not excite you.
1. Not aware of the "Morning breath"
A morning breath is a result of an embarrassing function of the human body, which dries out the mouth during the night.
That’s the reason why, sometimes, your breath doesn’t smell like roses in the morning.
In a relationship, both partners should be aware of this fact and understand that rushing to give your girlfriend or boyfriend a morning kiss is not always a good idea.
It becomes annoying when your boyfriend insists on giving you these morning kisses.
2. Not being aware of the bad breath problem
The next problem is when your boyfriend, who is no aware of his bad breath issue, is constantly trying to kiss you.
This puts you in an awkward situation, where you need to decide whether to let him kiss you or ask him to clean his mouth first.
In other words, to tolerate his low oral hygiene standards or to hurt his delicate feelings.
It’s a tough decision to make. And why should you?
Why should you care to make your mouth taste good for a kiss and your boyfriend shouldn't?
3. Raising low health worries
I have already mentioned that bad breath is not contagious.
The exception is only the case when bad breath is caused by some kind of a health problem.
You want to clarify these things from the early stages of your relationship.
Try to find out:
1. Is the bad breath caused by eating odorous foods or dry mouth, which can be easily fixed by teeth brushing and tongue scraping?
2. Is the bad breath caused by health problems, which needs to be cured by a doctor?
It’s uncomfortable to kiss your husband or boyfriend and worrying about catching some kind of disease after that.
4. Seeing no future in this relationship
A relationship is more of a reciprocal thing. Both partners are trying to make each other’s life easier.
That’s why it’s a questionable relationship when your boyfriend doesn’t contribute to a positive experience during kissing.
What’s the reason to fight for a relationship without intimacy, passionate kisses and no desire to make out?
You’d rather find a guy who is used to maintain his breath kissable.
If you're bothered by your boyfriend's bad breath during kissing tell him about this.
If he's worth your time, he'll fix it.
