Sometime ago when I was last with my ex, I was kissing her but I had to keep stopping as I almost fell over each time we had a snog!  It was horrible! 

Since then I discovered I had some weird kind of vertigo that amazingly one of the folks on this forum was able to sort out by telling me to perform the Epely manouver  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epley_maneuver

But even before that I always recall that sometimes I felt very lightheaded because of a kiss.  Has anyone else had this effect?  And I know some of you might be tempted to say it might be because of the blood was rushing off somewhere else, but that wasn't the case  [::)]

I try not to kiss 'er indoors these days. After she's downed a bottle or so of Chardonnay, if I kiss her, I end up as p****d as a newt!

Do you, or did you, have a habit of kissing somewhat inebriated ladies?

Come to think of it she was fairly drunk at the time but this also happened when she and I were stone cold sober!

So are you saying that none of you have ever experienced this before?

Nope.... But perhaps its just an amazingly wonderful kiss! Were You a Frog before you kissed her??? LOL If so perhaps morphing into a handsome prince made you dizzy or light headed..

 Geeze Louise, My idea of heaven, really is to find a man that can kiss me, making me feel dizzy,light headed and in love.... Awwwww... I love kissing!

I must admit KarenW, the contrast of green and orange is very appealing to the eye, although beware as this little tree frog may well be quite poisonous. However it's such a lovely creature I would have to risk it just in case it turned into a beautiful princess.  [:I]

Knowing my luck, I would turn into a frog!

Apparently the French are quite good at kissing so maybe that wouldn't be a bad thing Don.  [:D]
