I Kissed My Neighbor and It Felt Pretty Good.

The woman next door to me is a single lady. We've been friends for about 7 seven years. She's a very successful, independent and attractive woman. She has a lot of cookouts and parties at her house. I've met most of her family and friends. We talk almost every day. We both have gardens with tomatoes, peppers, cabbage and other vegetables. Sometimes I help her with minor repairs in her front or back yard. Anyway, last Saturday I asked her to go with me to a cookout a friend of mine was having. She said ok. We went in her covertable car and we had a great time. We are both supporters of Barack Obama and we both have Barack Obama yard signs in front of our house. So on the way home we got into a heated discussion about why Black people should support Barack Obama. In her opinion, Black people should support him because there's never been a Black President and it would be an historic event. She also believes that he is acutally the best choice. I argued that race shouldn't come into the equation. We need to just stick to the issues and decide who is the best candidate. Anyway, as I walked her to her door, the debate got even hotter. I just looked at her, smiled and gave her a kiss. We didn't even miss a beat. We went right back to our debate. I thought about that moment the next day. I wondered what she thought about me giving her a kiss. When we talked again, it was it never happened. We finished the debate and decided to agree to disagree. I'm glad it went that way. I really don't like getting involved with someone who lives so close. We are still good friends and neighbors and she just invited me to another outing she is planning. Anyway, I kissed my neighbor and it felt pretty good. What do you think about this post? I'm curious to hear what you have to say. Lloyd

I don't know what you want us to say. You say the neighbor is single, but you don't tell us your marital status, and it's not in your profile. You seem okay with the outcome. So, you kissed your neighbor and it felt good. Okay, congratulations!

I've mentioned many times during this discussion that I'm also single. Thanks for your reply, even if it has a tinge of sacarcism within it. With thousands of discussions being posted almost daily here at myLot, maybe you will be able to find one more to your liking. Congradulations to you also. Have a wonderful day. lloyd

Politics is what made the kiss possible. We both are single. I'm going to take it easy and sees what happens. Do you really think we would make a beautiful couple? Now I'm blushing again. lol Lloyd

In some countries kissing is used as a greeting or for saying goodbye. If your neighbor said nothing about it then she is probably okay with it. Of course, it could be that you took her by surprise and she was speechless.

I can assure you that this wasn't a goodbye kiss. We continued our debate for a while after the kiss. She didn't seemed surprised by the kiss and she definately wasn't speechless. We'll be attending another affair next Wednesday and I'll keep everyone up to date. Thanks for your reply. Lloyd

If you are both single and over 18 and like each other, what's the problem? Maybe it will lead to marriage. Friends first makes for the best relationships.

Haha just like Barack would want! He's all about bringing people together! Anyways, I think that is a really awesome story. I've done similar stuff, with friends though, where we kiss, not skip a beat, and then its like it never happened. Its kinda fun and strange and really awesome haha. I really like your story though! Got a good laugh out of it!

You may have a point. Maybe it a time for "Change". Should I be thinking "Yes We Can"? lol I'm glad you liked the story. I debated, within myself, if I should have shared this story. Now I'm glad I did. It was more than fun. Like I said, "I Liked It". lol Lloyd

I do sniff a successful and pretty nice romance in the air, I love the beginings of the relationships. Its all so mysterious and lovely. No mattter how old you are you still want to pick the petals, loves me-loves me not. I wish you both all the best. Nothing like best friends turning in to couples. As barack says -change-so may be its time you changed something too.

Nice to hear from you again. Things have been moving along pretty well. We've been seeing more and more of each other on a regular basis. Just last Thursday we went out. She made me a spagetti and sausage dinner that night and it was delicious. The following day I cooked some Maryland blue crabs for her and she loved it. P.S. There's been a few more kisses. lol Lloyd

Interesting, a heat of passion kiss. If it wasn't over a presidential debate, I could see it. So you two like each other, but mostly as friends and neighbors. Glad you can agree to disagree. I've never seen such extreme views as I have over candidates in my life as I have in this election. I think no matter who gets in, this election may come close to really tearing this country apart. Most people can't even do that. New York State has its first Black Governer. And he's doing GREAT! He's also the first blind one which gives hope to those of us with disabilities. I think it's interesting that she invited you to another outing. I think she may be cautious and interested to see where this goes. I'm not her, but I know I would be.

It is interesting that our first kiss was during after a debate about Barack Obama. I agree with you that I've never seen such a divide during a Presidential campaign. I hope this elections doesn't tear our country apart, but things aren't looking too good. I can't tell you how impressed I am with New York State Governor David A. Paterson. He has overcome so much and is excelling as Governor. I'm proud of him. As for my neighbor, we've become even better friends. We went out together last Wednesday and plan on going to the movies this Wednesday night. P.S. There's been a few more kisses lately. lol Lloyd

I think that Governor Patterson is so cool because he owes no one anything. He was Lt. Governor on that dingaling's ticket, but that fool had to resign, so he doesn't owe anyone. He didn't have to do anything but be really great at what he does. He didn't have to sell his soul to big companies. I think he is a real person who wants real change for the average person and hasn't lost touch with everyone-like so many rich people do. I hope that whoever gets in doesn't end up shot. When emotions run this high, crazy people tend to come out of the woodwork with weapons. I remember when Kennedy was shot. So in addition to hoping it doesn't tear the country apart, I hope we don't have an assasination no matter who gets in. So you two are getting more kisses in, huh? Well good for the two of you. Seems like things are getting a little cozier. I hope you two make a great pair and that you continue to get to know each other, take it slow, and become friends who respect each other first. Take care

Hmm...Kiss Kara Hajimaru Mirakuru? Translated: Kiss that started a miracle? Sounds like you had quite a time Lloyd. I don't know what you really wanted with the question what we thought about this post. You've got to be careful sometimes, otherwise someone like me could tease you about a situation like this! . I know you are not telling everything and I understand that but... "come on, gimme the dirt!" Okay, for something more serious and useful. I can't say much in terms of advice. If she had no problems with the kiss and you have no issues either, something "more" can develop. Be cautious and take it easy though. Ah! When it comes to arguments navigate carefully. Its good not to hold back too much and its better to be honest, but be sure to employ moderation. Arguing can be a deathknell for relationships no matter the stage or type. I'm sure you'll be alright though. Here's to the best for your situation. Before I forget... for fun, and from the top. Lloyd said: I kissed my neighbor and it felt pretty good.

"Kiss Kara Hajimaru Mirakuru? Translated: Kiss that started a miracle." I really like the sound of that. What language is that from? Believe me, I've already been teased about this post. Some of the replies had me actually blushing even though you couldn't tell my cheeks were red. lol "come on, gimme the dirt!" You'll have to wait for the "dirt" in part II of this discussion. I have more for you shortly. I'm attending an affair she is having next Wednesday. I spoke with her on the phone today and will be helping her set up her next cookout. I am being very caustious and taking it easy. I wish I could see the chart in Arial font, but I don't know how to do that. Thanks for your reply and don't be a stranger. Lloyd

That was Japanese. The symbols below are ASCII art, and its supposed to look like a thumbs up. I probably could have done it better =3 Other than that, I say Arial font to view it because that's how I made it, and its usually the font for all sorts of message boards. You don't need to change your browser settings (especially if you don't want to risk messing things up), you could always get friends or family on their browsers to see if they see the image.

I wanted to read what others thought about my situation and read any advice that they may offer. In my case, kissing and telling, is ok since ny neighbor isn't a member of myLot and probably won't find out about this post. By the way, I do consider myself a gentleman. Thanks for your reply. Lloyd

There you go,it all begins like that,you've made the first move and she's coming back,be prepared.I'm happy for you, atleast your postings and e&arnings that were stolen because you're Obama's supporter can be restored now, since you've done it!heheheh. I am following up all my good friends and that's why i could tell of what happened to anyone of them at any specific time.Although,i'm not very fortunate with friends,they don't give back the little love that i always give to all them,i'm not expecting anything back in returns for what i had done to friends but atleast they should not be back bitting and putting ones garment in the dirts.

Getting involved with a neigbor can be a delicate situation to deal with. If something went wrong it could possibly ruin our friendship. And you always have to wonder about the other neighbor's reactions. Thanks for your reply. Lloyd

Nothing wrong with a good friendly 'smackaroo'!! Go for it; she might like it. But I see where you were coming from, being neighbors. It would be nice if she lived at least a few blocks away.

Since this discussion is 4 months old, I want to ask if anything has come out of that kiss or are you still acting like nothing happened between the two of you? I am just being nosy and curious, so please forgive me. I used to have a good friend that we were friends for years and then one day things changed and we ended up in bed together. Horrible of us I know, but since it happened we figured we would try to date and see what happens. Well, it was the worst mistake ever. It lasted about 2 months, the dating thing, and then we got into one big fight, don;t even remember what we fought about, and we broke up. We have never spoken to each other since and that was about 15 years ago. We were friends for about 10 years before we got involved with each other and that friendship ended up out the window when all was said and done. I missed that friendship for a very long time. So my advice to you is to tread very lightly. You could end up losing a really good friend or you could end up having a wonderful relationship with one of your best friends. And with her living next door it could cause a lot of hardship for both of you if it doesn't work out as romantic friends. Be careful. Alrighty then, talk to you later my friend, Your friend Chris

Hello Chrislotz. Things are going just great. We've gone out many times since that kiss and remain good friends. I talk to her almost everyday and we've even went shopping together and to breakfast. So things are going well. Living so close together can make things a little uneasy at times, but it's a minor distraction. I'm sorry to hear about your experience, but I don't think that type of thing will happen in this case because as you suggested, we are both treading very lightly. Thanks for reviving this old discussion. It's nice to discuss something that very few people would object to in a way that would get it deleted. Your friend. Lloyd

I think that the kiss could not have been a bad thing in her eyes or she would have told you something. Maybe this is a relationship you may want to think about pursuing? Word of advice though be very careful as sometimes friendships that convert to the next level may hurt the initial friendship if the new relationship type does not work out. Cool topic hun!

I don't think she view the kiss as a bad thing. Acutally there's been a few more since the initial one. Believe me, I'm being very careful. Wouldn't want to do anything to harm the friendship. I'm glad you enjoyed the topic. Thanks for accepting my friends request. Lloyd

As you just said she is attractive, independent and successful, she must have quite a number of admirers among friends and acquaintances. You might be just one among many people who have kissed her and for her it's nothing to take seriously after all you have been friends for so long. I don't know about there but some people here have the habit to kiss me everytime we meet, and they are just acquaintances. She seems to be enjoying her successful and single life, that's good for her. There are people who can't appreciate what they've got until it's gone, that's just sad soemtimes to know how it all ends.

I was over her house yesterday as she was preparing for the affair she is having tonight. The food looked so good and do was doing an excellent job getting ready for this event. She asked me one time why I was single and I kind of ignored the question. So yesterday I put the question to her. She basically said "been there, done that". I'm sure she has other admires and acquaintances. I'm really not expecting anything to come from this kiss. Just wanted to share my story. Lloyd
