You can literally kiss and tell whether a person is warm and genuine or a
cold hearted individual, for a study has revealed that the way someone kisses
discloses much about their personality.
80 per cent of men and women, whether left or right handed, turned their
heads to the right when moving in on their target.
However, the remaining 20 per cent of left leaning cheek to cheek kissers are
'less emotional' than their right leaning counterparts, according to a study.
Researchers studied hundreds of volunteers, and observed many more kissing in

Air kisses often practiced by celebs are another 'unemotional' type of

Research has pointed out the beneficial effects of a kiss. A Japanese study
found that 30 minutes of passionate kissing could help control hay fever.
Tests suggest that it relaxes the body and reduces the production of
histamine, a chemical pumped out by cells in an allergic response to pollen.
Another study showed that 88 per cent of couples in long and happy
relationships have lips of similar size ĘC and men's tend to be on the thinner
side, a survey found.
Women with fuller lips are 28 per cent more likely to be seen as a fun date
than marriage material, while their thin-lipped rivals were 57 per cent more
likely to have long relationships, the Leicester University study found.
