When the countdown starts it's time to start psyching yourself up for that special New Year's Eve kiss.
If you've had a crush on a friend of a friends for months now it's time to pucker up and decide whether or not he's in to you
Here's how to decide whether your lip lock is passionate or pathetic...
1. Lip Contact
If he uses very light contact, like he's kissing a china doll, he's probably just not that into you. In a desperate attempt to show that there is no passion between you, he's trying to be as gentle as possible. Hopefully, he's being a gentleman and trying not to lead you on.
If your man crush thinks of you as a friend rather than a future lover he'll probably only give you a quick peck. If he chooses to kiss you on the lips he'll probably over exaggerate his mouth into a fish-style pout to show that he's not serious. However, if it ends up being a prolonged peck, lasting a few seconds, he could just be nervously testing the water to find out if you like him too.
If he gets busy thrusting his tongue in your mouth he's either incredibly passionate or incredibly drunk. New Year's Eve might be the only time when this sort of sloppy snog isn't a complete turn off, so why not make the most of it? He's in a party mood and choosing to share his happy holiday joy with you! In this situation it's difficult to know if there is any underlying passion and you'll probably never find out. Until he comes round the next day to apologise...
If throughout the evening you've spotted him making eyes and flirting from afar that could be a good sign...but has he actually come up to you and made conversation? If in the last two seconds before the gong he swoops in to make his move you may be elated, but he's probably just thinking 'she will do'. Enjoy it, but don't expect a long-term commitment to come out of it.
5. Slow and Steady
He starts of slow and hesitant, probably because he's not sure if you like him, and starts cranking up the passion when you don't slap him away. He's been flirting all night, bought you a couple of drinks and asked you loads of questions about yourself. Chances are you've found a keeper!
