Lavalife® Singles Kiss and Tell

Kissing Insights Revealed! Lavalife asks singles: How much can you really tell from a kiss?

Up® Toothpaste. How important is the first kiss? Surprisingly, 67% of single men were willing to give their dates a second chance after a bad first kiss, while only 55% of women would try again. Almost one-third (1,371) of women would call it quits – a bad kisser is likely to be bad in bed!

Lavalife Corp. commissioned three separate surveys on behalf of Close-Up® Toothpaste to gauge singles’ sentiments and preferences about kissing. The poll generated over 33,900 responses. Other interesting findings from the online poll, which was conducted the week of June 13, 2005, include:


    Tom and Katie: The Real Deal? 32% of singles think Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ frequent (too frequent?) lip locks mean true love, while 68% believe the duo’s public displays of affection are a publicity stunt.

  • A Harmless Kiss? A bit more than a third (34%) of male Lavalife singles polled do not consider an occasional kiss (as long as that is as far as it goes) with someone else to be cheating; however, 71% of women said it was cause for a break-up and 56% of males agreed.
