Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon's sparkling
So kiss me!!

Does this scenario seem familiar? It's the girl's night out and the conversation starts revolving around each other's prince charming and that magical moment when they were first kissed.

They talk about the butterflies in the stomach, cheeks turning red and the sweet nothings that were whispered into their ears. They've all been there and done that. You wonder when you'll join the club and have your own version to tell people? Who will you experience that first tingling of the toes with? Mr. Right If you fall into the 'never been kissed' category and get the blues post such mushy conversation, do not despair. You're not alone and it is perfectly normal to be waiting for your knight in shining armour.

As 24-year-old Shveta Kumar, a graphic designer, explains it, "The memory of one's first kiss is cherished through out our life. I don't want to make a wrong choice and repent for it later. I really don't have any qualms about waiting for that perfect moment with my Mr Right.” Left out The downside however, is that some times you drown your self in a pool of self-pity and depression.

Another member of the club, 22-year-old Nandita Mehta says, "I'm just waiting for the right guy to come along. I've had my share of mixed feelings which range between concern and sadness and sometimes hopefulness. I feel like I'm probably the oldest living 'never been kissed' person, but then I know that's really not true.” But this does not mean you can undermine the importance of a kiss. It marks the first important milestone of your relationship. And when you take that step you want to feel secure and comfortable when you pucker up.

Kissing a wrong person, also leaves an ugly scar in your memory. “When I think 

1. The right person to come along

2. You want the memory of your first kiss to be perfect

3. The longer the wait, the sweeter the taste!

back 10 years from now I want the memory of my first kiss and the person I'm kissing to make me happy” says 20 year old Nikita Sharma, a student of Delhi University. The darker sex Women aren't the only one's part of this club. In this world of promiscuity and one night stands occasionally we come across that one man who wants to hold on for that “special someone”. This is exactly what 25-year-old Gaurav Mehta feels, “I want the first person I kiss to be my wife. It has to be some one special because I want this kiss to mean the world to me.” Frankly all you beenthere-done-thats, inexperience is a wonderful thing and some of us have to experience it.
