It’s never a good idea to put a kiss at the end of any message you send to anyone you know through work.

Because it triggers Kiss Anxiety.

If you don’t include a kiss with your first message, you think they think you’re cold. Especially if they then reply with a kiss. If they do reply with a kiss, you think they’re the kind of person that doesn’t get Kiss Anxiety and that makes your Kiss Anxiety much worse.

If you do include a kiss with your first message, and they don’t ‘kiss-back’, you think you’ve offended them and you think they think you’re creepy.

If you do include a kiss with your first message and they do kiss back, you then have to decide whether kisses are now the norm. Or just a nice part of the introduction bit.

If you decide that the first kiss was just a nice part of the introduction bit, and leave a kiss off the second message, you think they think you made a kiss-error with the first message. And because they kissed you back, you think they think you think they’re creepy because they kissed back as a result of your kiss-error.

However if you do do a second kiss, that’s it. You’re committed. You can’t then pretend that the first kiss was a kiss-error. And if they don’t kiss you back a second time after your second kiss to them, you think they think you’re creepy for presuming that kiss are the norm and not just a nice part of the introduction bit.

Shit!

‘Just checked my last few messages.

I’m going for a lie down.
