What are reasons why people close their eyes before kissing?
1. The reason is simple and not often due to any emotional connection as many believe. According to BBC Science Focus, most people close their eyes because it’s literally impossible to focus on anything as close as a face at kissing distance as such, they close their eyes to prevent the distracting blur or the strain of trying to focus.
2. Secondly, kissing can also bring a feeling of vulnerability and self-consciousness and as such, the only way of making yourself feel more relaxed is by closing your eyes. It’s just like the habit of turning off the light before sex. There is really nothing emotional about it.
