You start making out with a guy and start kissing him. Then you realize he has bad breath!

    Take a breath mint and play a game of passing it back and forth between you via tongue. Works like a charm! icon_wink.gif

    "It's because you're a nice guy and hot as hell that I'm going to tell you this. One of us needs to get a breath mint."

    How bad is the breath? I've kissed guys with moderately bad breath before. It's really not the worst thing in the world....especially if he's a good kisser.

    Depends on the relationship. Is he a one night stand, or your boyfriend? And how bad is it? I can ignore it if the kissing and everything else is hot.

    The couple of times it happened at my own place, I suddenly stopped and said:

    "I'm sorry! I'm not thinking! I'll bet my breath is terrible! Let me run into the bathroom and brush my teeth and use some mouthwash real quick. Oh, and I've got fresh toothbrushes for guests if you wanna do the same, too." And I'd disappear before he could get a word in edgewise and tell me not to bother.

    Perhaps a bit clumsy & obvious, but ya know it worked! Both times the guys took my offer, and all was well afterwards. VERY well! icon_wink.gif

    Usually a guy will get the hint if you go get a breathmint or gum, and offer him some. If it is at home I go use a mouthwash.

    I always get concerned the next morning when your lying in bed and you wake to him in the bathroom...and they come out and want a kiss after they have already had time to brush their teeth etc. I don't want to ruin the moment but I panic thinking "I have morning breath!".

    well I would just flat out tell him " lets just chew on some gum or mints first so we don't have any gross surprises aahaha"

    I wouldn't want to be rude and just say "you are the one that needs the mints honey,not me"


    plus...Who doesn't like mints or gum icon_biggrin.gif

    I had this problem with a guy I was dating once. We dated for 3 weeks...his breath was so bad everyday. I recommended for him to use mouthwash, but he kept sayin "nah I don't like how it tastes".....i was trying to be subtle but some people just dont pick up on hints.

    I sometimes worry about that too, but morning breath is pretty much common knowledge and if he wants to kiss you then it must mean he doesn't mind.

    I keep Tic-Tacs on my nightstand just to be kind . Only one calorie!

    Wouldn't you smell it before kissing him? If I was interested in him I'd say that I feel like I need to brush my teeth & hopefully he will get it & brush his too.

    I met a guy once... he opened his mouth... I turned my head ... there wasn't a second date, much less kissing

    thank God this has only happened to me once.

    I don't care how drunk or oblivious I am, I will always quickly chew some gum prior to a kiss. As a smoker, this is necessary.

    Unfortunately someting very similar had happened to me years ago
    I had to leave
    I couldn't take it anymore
    What's with some men?
    Do they not notice this? Does someone have to come out and say it?

    Always pop a breathmint before making out...if his breath is not the best, push it into his mouth..if its not an issue then swallow the mint.

    I agree

    if it's really bad breath, you can smell it just talking to them.

    But if it's moderately bad breath, I'd just go ahead and kiss them.

    What if your breath is bad to him??... we all assume that our breath is nice and fresh.
    What would you want him to say to you??

    I'm turned off by bad breath as well. So, I go out of my way most of the time to make sure that I'm not offending anyone. Coffee and an occassional smoke means always having mints or gum at the ready. I actually tend to smile, or at least be relieved, when I see the other guy appropriately prepared as well.
