Kissing can Make you Both Happier People

There is actually a physiological response in our bodies that occurs when we experience a romantic kiss. The kiss releases endorphins and oxytocin, which are the ‘feel good’ hormones and these play a major role in the kind of bonding that people experience with their partner.


Many women place a high priority on the inclusion of kissing as part of their romantic feeling. Scientists as well as counselors also realize that as a couple is together for longer lengths of time, one of the first areas of bonding that is lowered is the process of kissing. This is also the first indication that the couple may be experiencing other relationship problems. Kissing is encouraged as a part of the affection one feels for another, and since it assists in releasing the hormones that make us feel better, it can not only reconnect a bond, but make both partners happier.
