When it comes to men, actions speak louder than words. And sometimes, the way they kiss you speaks the loudest.
Sure, there are men who love to sit around and talk about their feelings, but these men are definitely the exception and not the rule.
By and large, if you’re trying to figure out how your man feels about you, how he kisses you is often a much better way of telling than by trying to ask him to talk about his feelings.
The different types of kisses a man gives have a vocabulary all their own. Here are just a few of those kisses, and what his kisses mean.
1. A kiss on the lips means he truly values your love.
A quick, pretty dry, often closed-mouthed kiss is the way a man in a loving relationship says hello or goodbye.
It’s how he shakes the hand of the person whose vagina his penis currently enjoys visiting.
If he does it at home for no one to see, it’s a sign you’ve become a valued part of his routine and his life. If he does it in public too it’s proof to you and to the world that he’s serious about where your relationship is going.
2. A kiss on the top of your head means he wants to take care of you.
When a man kisses you on the top of your head, it means he’s feeling protective of you.
It means he couldn’t help himself, he had to stop what he was doing and let you know that he cares about you, that he loves sharing space with you, and that you mean the world to him. It’s sweet, fond, and a little parental.
3. A kiss on your hand means he's kind of a flirt.
If a man kisses your hand, you can be sure of a few things.
The first is that he is extremely confident and a little bit of a showman. It takes balls to kiss a woman on the hand if you are not a member of some European royal family.
A man who kisses you on the hand is all about performance. This doesn’t mean his feelings for you aren’t genuine, but you should gird your loins: You’re about to be hardcore COURTED.
4. A kiss on the inside your wrist means it's about to get seriously sexy in here.
If a man kisses the inside of your wrist, you can be sure of the fact that the only thing keeping him from ripping off all of your clothes and slowly teasing you for hours is the fact that you are out in public.
When he kisses you on the inside of your wrist, he’s telling you that he knows the way a woman’s body works and that he isn’t afraid to put that knowledge to good use.
5. A kiss on your neck means he has strong romantic feelings for you.
This kind of kiss is excellent, provided the man you are dating is not a vampire.
A kiss on the neck is a romantic and erotic overture.
If he kisses you on the neck, he’s telling you that he wants you and he wants you NOW. A kiss on the neck is usually quickly followed by a kiss on the neck with teeth. This is his way of saying “I want you NOW” without saying a word and it’s super effective.
6. A kiss with tongue means he's totally smitten with you.
When a man French kisses you, especially when he uses his hands to cup your face, whether he knows it or not he’s revealing just how smitten he has become with you.

It’s also his way of showing you what kind of lover he’ll be if the two of you have not yet had sex.
7. A kiss on the cheek means he's just not that into you.
A kiss on the cheek is the total opposite of a kiss with tongue.
In many respects, if the man kissing you on the cheek in the one you want to be kissing you with tongue, a cheek kiss is worse than a handshake.
8. A kiss by your eye means he truly appreciates you.

When he kisses you on the forehead he’s telling you that he’s there for you, that he wants to protect you.
He’s also telling you that he loves all of you, not just your body.
A kiss on the forehead is basically just a kiss on the brain.
10. A kiss on your stomach means he's comfortable with you.
If a man kisses you on your stomach he feels 100% comfortable with you, and he trusts that you feel that way with him too.
Not all of us feel 100% great about how our stomachs look.
