Do you ever pull away when your husband/wife kisses you?

I do this all the time. I know he hates it and he gets discouraged when I pull away from him, but I'm really self concious of my teeth. They are very big and I have a really small mouth. He tells me that he loves my teeth. Like "bigger is better," or something. I think he's just trying to make me feel better about myself though. He says my teeth are beautiful too, like "bigger can be more beautiful." Yeah, right, who is he trying to kid. He says that I won't be losing them anytime soon and that I'll still have my natural smile when I'm ninety. He most really love me to be so kind about something I despise in myself. Click on the picture and get a better look. What do you think?

Your teeth are not as big as you think they are. To you they seem magnified because you look at them every day and probably obsess over them, while others probably don't notice at all. When you feel bad about something like that, just remind yourself that at least you have teeth. Then forget about it and give your guy a hug and a kiss.

I think your teeth are just fine :-) As your housband has already seen them up close - I think you should just let him kiss you. He thinks they are just fine

I think they look simillar to my teeth actually. I always am self-conscious about mine as well. I feel that as a girl I should have smalelr and rounder teeth but my top teeth are larger and kind of squared off at the bottom. We're not rich so there's nothing we can do about them. I really am trying to not worry so much, everyone is different and all that jazz. But I do pull away from my significant other because he is always trying to kiss me and you know where that'll lead. To be honest I really don't feel the need to do that all the time! Also, I think maybe he can hold his breath for longer, I have to pull away to catch mine!

Most of the time I do not have a problem when my husband kisses me but there have been some days due to his false teeth when he first got them as they used to hurt my mouth. I cannot see the picture here so I cannot tell but I understand that your husband does want to compliment you and he must love you very much.

Oh come on your teeth are not bad at all. I really think your being too self conscious about them. Well I sometimes pull away too because I just dont feel like being touched.LOL Hey it happens.

No I dont pull away when my husband kisses me.I like him kissing me.Your teeth look fine.I am sure your husband likes you the way you are.No one has a perfect body and no one is perfect.I have heard that some people have a bigger foot than the other one ,ect.My mom knew this woman that one side of her armpit never grew hair but the other side did.So I think everyone is unique in their own way.I hav alot of self concious issues about myself.But I have to remember my husband married me and he obviously accepts me the way I am .

Anyone who knows me would tell you I'm a very blunt person. To save from being rude I could just not answer this thread, but I am answering because I can't believe you are worried about your appearance. Your teeth aren't perfect and I can't remember when I did see perfect teeth. I took a close up look at your picture and I didn't think you had such a big problem. I've sure seen worse, but I asked for a second opinion because being a woman myself I thought I'd ask for a second opinion. I had your picture on the screen and I asked my husband if this was me and you can see my teeth/mouth do you think this face would turn you off from kissing. I could see the puzzled look on his face and he was checking the picture out pretty good. He finally asked me what was so wrong he didn't think there was a poblem. I told him you were worried about a small mouth and big teeth. All hubby said was, oh for Gods sake she has nothing to worry about. So now you have my honest answer and his too. Relax you're just fine. Take your husbands advice/kisses. Good Luck.

The only time I will pull away is when I'm upset and I not ready to make nice.I think you have very pretty teeth and should not be ashamed of them.We all have our little flaws or at least what we think are flaws.I'm sure your husband would not have married you if he found your teeth in any way repulsing. I wish I could say the same about my teeth.I have had problem teeth ever since I was little.I'm actually missing one of my front ones....but you can't tell because there is no gap.The tooth I'm missing was sitting on top of the others.....simply because there was not enough room in my mouth.How is that for big teeth? They pulled teeth to make room and I wore braces for a long time....but still no results. I brush my teeth several times a day and have tried to keep them healthy....but I still keep getting cavities below the gum line and had to have several crowns because of that. I would trade with you in a heartbeat....but I know how hard it is to accept something on your body that really bothers you.I'm just hoping that this will help a little bit.

There is no point pulling when my partner is going to kiss me. I enjoy it very much. On the other hand, when my partner is in hurry.... and I want to kiss her....she would surely pull away .........saying that she is getting late for office.

It's hard to accept ourselves as we are, but it's really important to try to remember that you are who you are and nothing will change that. Your husband loves you as you are, and that is true love. He finds you beautiful no matter what, and in this day and age that can be so rare. Cherish him, enjoy how much he enjoys kissing you. Maybe through his love you can learn to love yourself a little more.

Yeah...I tend to do this too. I don't know why really...Sometimes he just wants to kiss and hug me at the wrong times...like when I get busy doing something....and that just irritates me. I don't get men...lol. Your teeth aren't so bad...in fact they look like my son's teeth...but they are not so bad. I would not worry about them too much and just try and play up your other attributes. If your husband doesn't care...why should you?

kiss - Loving kiss
Yes I do it many times depending on my mood. Besides if he gets to my lips, then it is a very long kiss and unfotunately, my nose is always blocked, so if his lips close my lips and my nose is blocked too, you can understand .....good God I need to breath, so I have to push him away........lol, He gets a bit upset about this, but then I make up in other ways....lol.... you see it is not difficult to please husbands........if your hubby is not distubed by your teeth, then why should you be concious about it.....just enjoy life.....forget about such minor things in life. Be happy.

give yourself a break! there are pluses and minuses in each person! maybe your husband feels inferior of his small chest. does that mean your love towards him reduces? it does not matter what size your teeth are and how you feel about them. it is important how and why your husband loves you! try and analyze that and you will stop worrying about your big teeth!

love is important between husband and wife. it does not matter whether your teeth, hair, leg or other parts of body is beautiful or ugly. so if your husband kisses you you should accept her feelings and emotion instead of pulling them away. he may be feel that you do not like him much by his face, nature or behaviour. so it is complement to each other. thanks.

i honestly do not know why you are so self-concious about your teeth. i took a good look at the photo and they are not that big, sweetie. Don't pull away from your husband. It sounds to me like this man really loves you and everything about you.

i know exactly where your coming from, i pull away for the exact same reason and u wouldnt believe it but he said nearly the same thing as ur hubby does to u... im getting use to it, but he says he loves my smile and my teeth etc but yeah he loves me so i guess he has to feel that way.

The only time I pull away from mine is after he's eaten a load of onions. WHEW!! If your husband didn't want to kiss you, he wouldn't. Apparently he loves you just the way you are, otherwise he wouldn't be with you. Everybody has things about themselves that they wish to change, the funny thing, other people usually don't think it's as big a deal as we ourselves do. Something so obvious to us, they don't even notice! I think you should just smile and let him kiss you!!
