Dear Carol

My first kiss was a major letdown


 
I've always dreamed of my first kiss being wonderful. But a couple days ago, my boyfriend kissed me and it was kind of nasty because he shoved his tongue down my throat. Then he said I was an OK kisser for a first-timer. I felt insulted. I want to break up with him, but I can't get the words out. My other plan was to make him want to break up with me, but it’s not working. What should I do?


Dear Wants to be Single,

Breaking up is tough, but it’s better than staying in an uncomfortable romance with an insensitive guy. You want out, so let him know. In person or on the phone, say, "We’ve had fun, but this isn’t working. Let’s go back to being friends, OK?" Once you’ve let him go, don't second-guess your actions. Instead, have faith that your next kiss, whenever that might be, will have more sparkle. And it will be a first kiss with someone new.
