"All I want is your kiss!" cries Prince.
Here's my rule, if I can't kiss you, then I can't date you and trust me, I've tried!
Can knowing whether someone is a good kisser either make or break your attraction to them, and is it important? A study quoted by the Science of Relationships and quoted by Dr. Marisa Cohen of St. Francis University hypothesized that subjects who were told that a potential partner was a “good kisser” would find the potential partner as more attractive and would be more likely to pursue future dates with said partner than someone who was described as a “bad kisser.” So, essentially, is being labelled a good kisser good for your ability to be perceived as more attractive to someone?
724 participants took an online questionnaire which presented vignettes about potential partners. "Half of the vignettes described a “good kisser” and the half described a “bad kisser.” Participants had to rate the potential partner in terms of how attractive they thought he/she was, how interested they would be in going out on a date with the person, how interested they would be in having a casual sexual encounter, as well as how likely they would be to pursue a long-term relationship. The researchers compared participants’ ratings of the “good kisser” and the “bad kisser.” What they found was that people who were described as being a "good kisser" was rated as more attractive, and were more likely to go on a date with him/her, more willing to have a sexual encounter with him/her, and were more interested in pursuing a long-term relationship with this person. Being a good kisser was also more pronounced for female identified participants than for men, but only when rating their willingness to casual sex adventures.
Some studies, like one based out of Manchester University measured how often men look at women's lips when meeting them.
