Often these marks are made unknowingly—it can be totally unintentional, a result of passion.
People with sensitive skin or those who bruise easily will get hickeys often from little stimulation of their skin. The reasons can be many, including looking improper at work—bosses, office mates, and customers may find hickeys offensive or unprofessional.
And above all, kissing is something you do together, rather than to or at another person.
Sadly, we encounter over a lifetime of kissing quite a few kissers who make elementary—or truly awful—kissing faux pas, and it makes us wish that everyone with a pair of lips got their own user’s manual.As such, Woody, who has always just hung out with friends in groups, contemplates asking a girl out on a date for the first time in his life, but being inexperienced, he doesn't know how to go about it or how to act on the date. The prettiest girl or the most outgoing girl may not be the best choice, but rather the girl with whom he thinks he would have the best time.His older brother Ed may be able to give Woody some pointers using his own examples of what he does from the time he talks to the intended to ask her out to the time he drops her off at the door after the date is over.Family members tend to frown on hickeys, as do officials, so if he’s going to be appearing in court, seeing valuable or new clients, working in sales, or visiting relatives, be careful. Be sure to ask him how he feels about love bites before your kisses start to stray away from his mouth, and he’ll be able to relax knowing he’s with a considerate kisser.In general, it’s a no-no to leave marks in visible places but forgivable in hidden spots.
