    since ive never had that new years kiss i see all the time on tv and around other people, id like to ask: is the tradition that important?

    this new years eve, i finally have a relationship and an opportunity for that symbolic kiss, but it looks like we might be going to a party where we cant be very open.. im a little bummed by that. am i overreacting? i guess ive just been looking forward to participating in that new years kiss... maybe its really worthless?

    I'd say that if you want that special New Year's kiss with your guy you should do it. It's too bad that you can't be very open at the party you're attending. You could always hug him and then sneak a kiss in the process. You definitely deserve to have your kiss though. Find a way to make it happen! icon_smile.gif

    Hey I will be going to a party that has a lot of people attending that are my friends and much more that aren't my friends. I'm bringing a guy I have been seeing and am getting serious with. My friends know I'm gay. And I will be doing the "midnight kiss". So they can suck it if they don't like seeing it, haha.

    A New Year's kiss is a lovely thing to do, that all the straights can enjoy, and so should we. Think there might be a little quite place, a room or something, or maybe just outside, where you can have a kiss with your guy?

    Eh, doesn't matter to me wether I get kissed or not, that isn't my priority.
    All I want is to have a great time with friends. That's what should matter. icon_smile.gif

    Not to be overly sentimental, but in truth, EVERY kiss is worth something, and some more than others. Wasting a chance to kiss is - to my 52 year old mind and heart - a foolish, foolish waste.
    Kissing in the New Year comes from German and Welsh traditions, based in a belief that the first person you encounter in the New Year, and "how" you interact with them (e.g. a business meeting, a fight, a financial transaction, etc) is a sign of what's to come the rest of the year. So if the first person you encounter is the person you love most, then it is wise to kiss them, and keep the harmony and romance alive for the coming year.
    In truth, while this exceedingly romantic notion is steeped in superstition, there's something to be learned about what's at stake here for you, OP, and that is how you want your relationship perceived and how you wish to 'claim' or 'declare' your love - with secrecy and un-fulfilled longing, or with pride and passion and tenderness.
    It isn't easy to be half-in/half-out and there are, doubtless, many reasons you have for not being able to be 'very open'. But in fact, what kind of fun are you really having and at whose expense? I'm guaranteeing no straight identified couple is asking this question of anyone.
    I say kiss him, kiss in 2012 and kiss goodbye to fear, the closet, lack of self-respect and being sublimated in an environment where everybody else EXCEPT you is free to express your affection and love for someone.
    Kiss in hope, pride, love, and a little fearless abandon. You might be surprised at what fortune follows - not by chance, but by choice.
    Happy New Year, and good luck.
