Do you Both Want to Kiss? How do you Know?

In the movies & TV, when two people are attracted to each other, there’s usually a first kiss. It’s beautiful and romantic and perfect. It’s like they just somehow magically both knew it was time to lean in and do it. In real life, a first kiss can be very exciting. It can also be awkward and nervous. One thing’s for sure: Nobody magically knows that it’s the right moment to lean in for a first kiss. If you want to kiss someone for the first time, how can you know that they also want to kiss you? In this video, people talk about first kisses, and how they made sure the other person wanted to do it too.

Why We Talk About…


Let’s face it – dating can be amazing, exciting, and complicated. Where do we meet a potential partner? How do we let someone know we’re interested in them romantically? How do we figure out if they’re interested in us? When do we take a risk and when do we play it safe? How do we start dating?  How do we keep a relationship going? How do we figure out if it’s working for us? How do we change a relationship if it isn’t working? How do we end a relationship if it’s not working and we can’t change it? How do we take care of ourselves if we want a partner and don’t have one? If we get dumped? Who are the right people to ask about these things? Join the conversation!


We hear a lot about consent when it comes to sex. But what does consent mean? How do we ask someone for consent to kiss them? To have sex with them? How do we decide if we want to give someone consent? 

As well – should people be asking us for our consent about other things besides sex? Should staff ask for our consent when figuring out what the day’s activities will be? Can our parents make us eat broccoli without our consent? Join the conversation!
