    NYT: There are activities common to most humans that we enjoy immensely, without much thought, and as frequently as opportunity and instinct provide. On occasion, researchers feel they need to know why.

    Recently, experimental psychologists at Oxford University explored the function of kissing in romantic relationships.

    Surprise! It’s complicated.

    After conducting an online survey with 308 men and 594 women, mostly from North America and Europe, who ranged in age from 18 to 63, the researchers have concluded that kissing may help people assess potential mates and then maintain those relationships.

    I saw that article.
    As I read it, it said that, in casual relationships, it was more important before sex. And that in casual relationships, it was adjudged less important as time went on.

    However, in deep relationships, it was more an indicator of a soulful, FEELING relationship.
