    21 People Who Definitely Had A Worse First Kiss Than You

    They seem to happen a lot in parents' basements.

    We asked the members of BuzzFeed Community to share with us their terrible first kiss stories. Here are some of the best (worst) answers...



    "He went in to kiss me and sneezed in my mouth." –

    "We were on our way to a bowling all-nighter with our Church Youth Group. I thought he was incredibly cute so when he asked me to sit next to him on the bus my 14-year-old self was so excited. He leaned in for the kiss and we made out for several minutes. Once we got there my friend introduced me to her new boyfriend... the same guy who had just given me my first kiss. It was long night being locked in a bowling alley with the two of them." – kempermckenzie


    "My eighth-grade 'boyfriend' was hanging out at my house. His dad arrived to pick him up, and as my mom yelled up the stairs that it was time to go, my boyfriend suddenly lunged at me, mashing his lips on mine, and shoving his tongue in my mouth. I was so surprised, that I jerked back, and smacked my head on the wall behind me. We broke up the next week in school, mostly because I was now convinced that kissing was just awful. Interesting side note: He is now serving a 40-year sentence for murder." – beccawoodwardt


    "I was 14. He said he was 17 and just graduated high school. He waited until after giving me my first kiss to tell me that he's actually 21. Then he told me that I should move my mouth more if I want to be a good kisser." – Francesca Kang, Facebook



    "My first kiss was technically in Kindergarten. We kissed behind the bookshelf and then he punched me in the face. Learned from a young age not to trust boys." – eileenf4a5663884


    "It was the summer before eighth grade, and as we stopped kissing, I stepped back onto a spider. Not just any spider. A mama spider with a sack of eggs on her back. Baby spiders ran everywhere. It looked like a scene from Harry Potter when they go into the Forbidden Forest." –abbys4a845e363


    "My first kiss took place in a parking lot. It's as romantic as it sounds. I was getting out of the car at the mall and my boyfriend at the time surprise-kissed me, reaching across the passenger seat to do it. I was completely unprepared and literally halfway out of the car. He immediately told me it was like 'kissing a plank of wood, or maybe a dead fish'. What a charmer." – jennyp4b17105ef



    "He jammed his tongue in my mouth and I freaked out and bit his tongue so hard that his tongue started bleeding." – 4evrsinger


    "The person I had my first kiss with got a nose bleed and bled all over me. I'm not good with blood so I was super nauseated and eventually threw up. Not a good time." – jenaes419926afe


    "I was at sleepaway camp and my 'boyfriend' and I kissed... and we got stuck together by our braces. A counselor had to walk the two of us to the infirmary because we were stuck together and we couldn't walk without help. When we got to the infirmary they called a local orthodontist, we drove to his office in a car still stuck together by our braces and when we got to the orthodontist he cut the wires and was laughing at us the whole time. Also, to make things worse they had to call my mother to get her credit card for payment, and the orthodontist told her everything and I wanted to die..." – megm4a50c5921


    "I had a boyfriend who was moving out of state, so a kiss was his going away present. His friend had a party for him, and there was a hidden tree at the end of his backyard. We climbed and sat in the second branch from the bottom. As he went in to kiss me, he lost his balance, and fell out of the tree. He broke his arm and his braces went through his lips and cheek, I think he had a concussion too. His move was delayed by a week or so because of his injuries." – heatherd39


    "When I was 15, I was at the zoo for a party after hours. A boy and I had been flirting all night, we went for a walk and ended up in front of the lions. Right as we were about to lean in and kiss, the lions started mating behind us and made the entire thing a really awkward moment." – rebeccal4b5a1258d


    "I was watching TV at this boy's house. I really wanted to kiss him and knew he wanted to kiss me, but I was really nervous because I'd never kissed anyone before. After a few hours of awkward sexual tension, my mom texted me saying she was outside. We both stood up, and he finally kissed me.

    I was so startled that I RAN down the stairs, tripped over his dog, sprinted out the front door, and jumped into the front seat of my mom's car. She was like 'are you okay?' And I said 'yeah, why?' And she goes, 'what's that in your hand?' It was the remote control for his TV. It was in my hand when we were watching TV, and I never put it back down. I was so mortified, I was like 'mom, just drive'.

    Obviously, he noticed I accidentally stole it, and I had to go back the next day to hand-deliver his remote control to the front door of his house. We actually ended up dating for about a year." – tobackgabrielle



    "We were 15 and in my parents' basement watching Grease. He leaned and stuck his tongue down my throat with no warning. He didn't even move his tongue... it just sat here. It was the worst French kiss/make-out session ever. The worst part? It ruined Grease for me." – lauras402a7ec37


    "I was in the basement of my first boyfriend's parents house. He leaned in to kiss me and went full-blown make-out the first time. He kept pressing his teeth against my gums, scraping the inside of my mouth, and even cut my gums open. The relationship ended shortly after that." –rachelh462d06b6e


    "My girlfriend and I were leaving after a school dance and, as our school is kinda homophobic, our friends decided to stand in a circle around us to prevent anyone from seeing two girls kissing. This would have been fine, if it weren't for the fact that they proceeded to just... stare at us. The whole time. And then clapped and gave us high fives. I'm still not over it." – mrain1650


    "I was 14, and my 'boyfriend' (loose term) and I were sitting with some of my best friends. Someone said something that made me laugh and I smiled and turned to him, and he decided to take that moment to kiss me. Long story short, he split his lip trying to kiss me and instead kissed my braces. He was mad, but I didn't feel bad." – chelseajillianp



    "Me and this guy were in the middle of playing a video game. He randomly pauses the game, puts the controller down, and just stares at me awkwardly. I'm totally clueless and thinking, 'What's his deal?', when he leans in and kisses me real quick. And as soon as we pull apart, he jumps up and runs to the bathroom! He stays in there for what seems like an eternity, and when he finally comes back he says, 'Sorry. I didn't run to the bathroom because of kissing you.'" – Brittany Boehl, Facebook


    "I was seventeen, and a friend set me up on a blind date with her boyfriend's brother. We were awkwardly sitting on his couch, watching some boring movie and he keeps getting closer, trying to rub my hand and what not. Out of the blue he decides to go in for the kiss really fast. Like ninja fast. However, I saw him coming in from the corner of my eye and flinched in surprise. Our teeth smacked together so hard I chipped a tiny bit off my front tooth. There was no second date, but it did inspire me to go to dental school, so there's that." – Katherine Sislow, Facebook


    "I went to prom with a kid I didn't really want to go with, but I felt too bad to say no. He asked if I wanted to go into the photo booth... I knew what was going to happen. He goes in for a kiss, MISSES, and starts making with my chin, but doesn't move. So now I have a photo strip of my chin being licked to remember my first kiss. Worst part was the principal was standing outside the photo booth... the curtain was very thin." – kimmies41b69896c


    "At a middle school basement party we were all playing spin the bottle. When the bottle came to a stop it was pointing at one of a pair of twins. To this day 25 years later, I don't know who my first kiss was with." – johns43e17294c
