We’ve all been there. It’s the countdown to midnight and you are searching the room urgently for someone to kiss, anyone will do really.
Unsurprisingly these aren’t the most of romantic embraces. In fact they can be quite traumatizing.
So the lovely team over at Elite Daily decided to ask around and see how bad some people’s New Year’s kiss experiences had really been!
So here they are, enjoy!
When you find a fake boyfriend for the night…
I blacked out at 9 pm and apparently had a boyfriend the whole night. No recollection of his face or any time spent with him, but apparently that was my New Year’s kiss, and apparently, we were obnoxiously making out all over the place.
He added me on Snapchat two weeks later. I didn’t add him back.
When your friend’s guy tries it on with you…
My friend threw a New Year’s party at her apartment. Her former friend-with-benefits was there. We were talking for a bit, and for some reason, when she was in the kitchen, he had the balls to kiss me.
Sure enough, she saw it, even though she pretended she didn’t. I felt really awkward for the rest of the night.
When you get a little surprise…
So one year, me and my girls decided to try and have a New Year’s to ourselves, but one friend got so drunk that she ended up crying and texting her ex. So he came and brought his brother along, whose weird nickname was Snir (more on that later).
I had recently broken up with my boyfriend after he moved back to South Korea to take over his father’s martial arts club, so I was feeling really lonely and started chatting up Snir, despite the somewhat strange odor coming from his body.
It was getting close to midnight, and it was looking obvious that me and Snir would lock lips at midnight. Once the countdown started, we looked at each and started getting closer.
At “one,” I went for an open mouth kiss…big mistake. He burped into my mouth, turned around and started laughing! His brother had dared him to do it, and I later learned that Snir means burp in another language!
The next year, I decided to celebrate New Year’s with a tub of Rolo ice cream in my PJs.
When your kiss isn’t even with a human…
Spent New Year’s Eve shooting a concert that lasted until four in the morning. Got to my friend’s house around 4:30, crashed on his couch.
About an hour later, I woke up to his dog licking my face. I suppose that’s a New Year’s kiss, right?
When you couldn’t even manage to avoid the ONE thing you were trying to avoid…
I once purposely avoided a NYE party with my best friends because my ex would be there and went to a really sh*tty party with other friends instead… then, after ringing in the new year surrounded by creepy guys I didn’t know (and not kissing anyone), I got dropped off at my house at the exact time he pulled up to his (across the street from mine), and we ended up hooking up. Worst start to a new year EVER.
When your bodies are disgustingly in sync…
I was the sober driver ’til 11 pm for some friends before showing up to a midnight party. I realized I needed to catch up and immediately began pounding Red Bull vodkas.
By the time midnight rolled around, I had 14 Red Bull vodkas and several pulls from God knows what fifth. As the clock struck midnight, I grabbed the girl next to me, and we had our midnight kiss….which turned into her and I fighting for the toilet as we both projectile vomited all over the bathroom.
She wanted to make out afterward… I declined.
When he’s much older…
I was 18, and I had my eye on this guy all night, hoping perhaps he could be my New Year’s kiss! A group of us got in the cab from the pregame to go to the party, but to our luck, the gate guard just wasn’t going to let any more people in.
So naturally, we decide to take our rejected selves back to the house we pregamed at, which was a house full of drunk adults. Ten minutes to midnight, my friend starts makin’ out with the guy I wanted to kiss me.
Classic! So I go inside alone (after watching the two make out for a bit, like a creep) to watch the ball drop with some adults.
The clock strikes midnight: A 45-year-old man grabs me by the shoulders, turns me into him and plants one on me!
