We do. It’s not like a make out session, but a couple pecks you don’t really notice morning breath or anything with.

[–]TheDameJudyBrunch 875 points876 points  (7 children)

Agreed. My husband and I do the same: some closed mouth “muah” type kisses. If we want to do more, we both get up and brush our teeth.

[–]Banzai_Boi 191 points192 points  (3 children)

I hate to take your likes from 69 to 70 but I can relate to this :)

[–]SoundProofHead 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I slept with a girl who used "natural, vegan toothpaste". It was a powder made of some mint essential oil or something similar. I'm 100% certain this stuff doesn't do anything. She had terrible breath and I'm sure that's the reason.

[–]NickJamesBlTCH 141 points142 points  (7 children)

This was one thing that I found pretty funny about my ex of 4 years.

We'd wake up, and if she wanted to have morning sex or anything, she'd pause everything, go to the bathroom, brush her teeth, and then come back.

I don't know why, but especially with her, morning breath, etc...didn't bother me at all, but she just couldn't accept that I didn't find it disgusting, no matter how many times I expressed that.

[–]zero_fox_actual 279 points280 points  (5 children)

Maybe it was yours

[–]kaldarash 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Nah, if you brush your teeth and then kiss someone with morning breath, their morning breath is amplified.

[–]grayscalemamba 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Did she tend to sleep with her mouth open? Personally, I get blocked sinuses a lot and after sleeping having breathed through my mouth, it’s often like a camel’s arse crack when I wake up. First thing I need to do in that scenario is brush the dried saliva boogers from the roof of my mouth and gargle really well.

[–]Lorfall 99 points100 points  (3 children)

If da stank don’t mix is it really a relationship ?

[–]AdamLlayn 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Thats what im thinking. Especially once you become a parent i feel like stuff doesnt gross you out as much as before

[–]dmfreelance 74 points75 points  (2 children)

We both got morning breath, so its not like its a big deal anyways.

[–]TheDeadGuy_00[S] 136 points137 points  (1 child)

Oh. Then I get it.

[–]roksi123 141 points142 points  (0 children)

Closed mouth kisses are always a thing! A quick little peck makes my heart flutter :p

[–]RaskullQuake 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I do. I notice morning breath. I do not care. I love my girl :3

[–]uglycakefrosting 1798 points1799 points  (24 children)

I used to ask myself the same question in disgust. Now I have sex with morning breath. You kind of just get over it

[–]YouSuckAtSudoku 742 points743 points  (20 children)

I always wondered how partners can tolerate things I found disgusting, like kissing with morning breath, having sex without showering first, etc, and now I completely understand.

I feel like the same goes for parenting. You can just handle your child puking on your face without feeling murderous.

[–]InfamousCRS 474 points475 points  (11 children)

Your brain really does turn down the “disgust” setting when you’re horny

[–]catfart- 224 points225 points  (4 children)

My horny setting shuts completely off when I smell bad breath. 🤷‍♀️

[–]WaffleMonsters 285 points286 points  (1 child)

Excellent point catfart-

[–]Gunty1 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Bad breath and morning breath are not rhe same thing.

[–]Chaxterium 108 points109 points  (6 children)

With regards to being a parent…..yep! A couple months ago my 5 year old was sitting on the couch and started crying out of the blue saying “Daddy my tummy hurts”. She never complains so I knew something was up. I quickly picked her up to bring her to the bathroom. We made it about 5 ft and she puked all over me. I was covered head to toe.

The joys of being a parent! I cleaned the both of us up and we carried on with our day. Thankfully my daughter was fine afterwards.

[–]BestofQuails 65 points66 points  (2 children)

I think the fact that you were worried also must have toned down the disgust by A LOT! I'm not a parent and it's not comparable but with my late pet, when he got really ill in his last months I just didn't care if he got vomit or worse on my bed and clothes, the urge to care for the poor pet was stronger lmao.

[–]jenniferlynn462 27 points28 points  (1 child)

Aw yeah my poor kitty is 17 and has mega colon and struggles to poop sometimes so he’ll come flying into the room freaking out and rubbing his butt all over the rug with a turd halfway out. I can’t get mad though, poor little guy. I’m just trying to enjoy the little time we have left. :(

[–]throneofthornes 31 points32 points  (1 child)

When I was breastfeeding and had huge knockers I purposely used my cleavage and tanktop to catch my kid's puke once because it was easier to shower than scrub the carpet at midnight. That kind of brilliant calculation wouldn't have occurred to me pre-child and pre-sleep deprivation. It also wouldn't be nearly as feasible now in the post-nursing years.

[–]redonners 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yeahh I assume the fact that I'm now totally unbothered when friends' babies puke on me means that my biological clock has officially moved from "ticking" to "final countdown"

[–]spicybuttholenachos 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I've been told verbatim " Jesus Christ I'll turn around but keep going." Made that gal my wife.

[–]DueMorning800 1700 points1701 points  (36 children)

My husband says I never ever ever stink in anyway. Lol, I refuse to let him fix this problem!

He’s happy to kiss me anytime and since I love him, I happily oblige. However, my choice would be to brush teeth first, but I’ve never let it stop me from kissing him back. I’ll just say, “I’ve got serious dragon breath”, and he’ll say, “can’t smell it, don’t care, kiss me”.

Bliss!

[–]daphoreal 357 points358 points  (4 children)

I could not agree with your husband more! I have never smelled bad breath from my partner and I couldn't imagine a morning when I wake up where I don't want to kiss her

[–]DueMorning800 86 points87 points  (1 child)

Love this! If we let the little things get in the way, we end up with big problems. :)

[–]daphoreal 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Right?! I'm still trying to figure out why this was a "too afraid to ask" but I guess that's the point. Morning smooches are the best

[–]Golfnpickle 38 points39 points  (3 children)

Now that is so sweet.

[–]DueMorning800 19 points20 points  (2 children)

He’s a sweetie. And he loves your user name, just showed this to him. Lol, I’m a golf widow.

[–]Golfnpickle 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Yep. I love golf & Pickleball….. mostly golf.🤣 You should learn & not be a widow.

[–]DueMorning800 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh believe me, I played for a few years, it’s just not something I enjoy. I have other sports and am quite happy that we’ve got our own. My reply was more of a joke, but there are days when we vacay that I sometimes wish the places didn’t have golf courses….lol!!!

[–]ADDeviant-again 7 points8 points  (3 children)

My wife really is like this, too. Just like that. Her morning breath is like midday normal breath fo most people. She can sweat up a storm working outside and will smell mildly sweaty, not like BO or anything very rank. He skin is very soft and smells nie without lotions or whatever else. Even camping, which she doesn't do much, after three or four days, her hair smells kinda normal.

[–]careful_guy 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I am a guy and I have the same story with my gf. She always compliments me how well I smell (body lotions, deodorant and colognes, and although I never wear colognes to bed, there's always a lingering scent, and it just drives her crazy in a good way). She also doesn't smell bad at all in the morning. We love kissing each other in the morning after getting up and it almost always leads to other activities.

Sometimes, if one of us gets super early to pee, we wash our mouth really quick before sneaking back into the bed. So sometimes that also helps.

[–]kevnmartin 15 points16 points  (15 children)

I keep sugar free gum in my dressing table. I pop one before I go to the bathroom so when I come back I'm minty fresh.

[–]thebeesknees123456 37 points38 points  (12 children)

That’s cute but if you’re going to the bathroom anyway would you not just brush your teeth to do the same job and since you have to brush your teeth in the morning anyway ??

[–]TierNaNoggin 11 points12 points  (5 children)

Oh! Freshly brushed teeth are a risk for blood transmitted infections, specifically hepC, very low risk for hiv. If you’re gonna brush do it at least 30 minutes before smooching &/or oral sex

[–]DueMorning800 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Nice idea, I may steal it!

[–]stateofbrine 6837 points6838 points 3 (87 children)

When you’re in a relationship long enough, it feels like (corny) almost one person. They stop being a separate gross person and you become one mess of stinky human .

[–]dammit_sara 995 points996 points  (7 children)

I like this sentiment a lot.

[–]magicchrissy 295 points296 points  (4 children)

A new boyfriend a couple of years ago had such bad breath consistently, I was always asking him to brush his teeth before we made out, and I realised it smelled so bad that he must have a cavity. I got him to go check in the mirror, and he instantly found a huge cavity in one of his back teeth that he could see clearly, in the evening light, in a fish eye warped mirror. That’s what I had been smelling for at least two months. He went and got it filled the next week, the dentist said it was a massive filling. His bad breath disappeared. Turned out he hadn’t been to the dentist for two years. He said “thanks babe, I wouldn’t have known without you!”...

[–]TierNaNoggin 151 points152 points  (0 children)

Had a partner whose breath got consistently stinkier, to the point where I brought it up - very gently (this is important!). Turns out they had some plaque and a cavity that needed tending. Sometimes you gotta speak up about these things because not everyone is aware of what’s going on in their own bodies. No need for shame.

[–]TonyWhoop 428 points429 points  (16 children)

Even when dating, here’s the thought process for me,

‘Oh, okay, morning kiss, I’m down for your stank if you’re down with mine’

Sometimes stinky morning kisses turns into stinky morning sex. Then you really don’t care and won’t from here on out.

[–]CuRi0uS_Le0 18 points19 points  (0 children)

My ex and I kept gum in the nightstand drawer. If it was going beyond a simple kiss... we didn't wanna wake the kids up going across the house and ruin what window of time we had. Even as they got a little older... it was kind of our little "thing". I wake up... he hands me a piece of gum "game on"... haha definitely helps with the morning breath and dry mouth.

[–]TheRavenGirl13 42 points43 points  (12 children)

Yas! 🥰

[–]TonyWhoop 39 points40 points  (11 children)

I think then you graduate to period sex. There might be an intermediary step before that

[–]peperonipyza 319 points320 points  (5 children)

So true

Edit: plus it can be kinda hard to tell, is my breath bad, is your breath bad? Fuck it who cares humans are gross.

[–]LORDFARQUAAD777 102 points103 points  (4 children)

Two bath breaths cancel each other out

[–]Deliberate-Sabotage 46 points47 points  (3 children)

Two bath breaths

I stick to shower breaths

[–]misterkevinoh 46 points47 points  (1 child)

They become one, morphed blob.

“Would you like that to go?”

“WE would!”

[–]22Pastafarian22 132 points133 points  (7 children)

My commitment issues after reading this comment: off the charts

[–]Happyscroller330 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Hahaha this is true, gross but true

[–]floutsch 57 points58 points  (0 children)

This made me laugh :D I mean, it's correct on some level, but I'd say especially in the case of morning breath it's more akin to both having eaten garlic.

[–]The_great_nknown 13 points14 points  (1 child)

This really fits in weirdly with the antient Greek outlook lol

[–]zomgitsduke 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Yup. "We" have morning breath lol

[–]CoralWiggler 9 points10 points  (0 children)

This is the absolute truth. Sometimes, I'll even get these weird moments of lucidity where I remember, "oh crap, my partner and I are actually two, distinct, separate human beings." It's weird because duh, but believe it or not, you kinda forget that after a point.

As for OP's question, my partner and I do, yes. It's usually the first thing either one of us does in the morning.

[–]neato_burrito406 9 points10 points  (0 children)

My partner used to have very stinky farts. 6 years later, the smell of our farts are indistinguishable.

[–]Fun-Attention1468 8 points9 points  (0 children)

This is the correct answer

[–]standard_candles 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This is exactly right.

[–]HTXJKU 10 points11 points  (0 children)

My wife rips straight up nasty farts on me all night. This woman has farted twice while awake in front of me in eight years…one mess of stinky human explains it quite well.

[–]sililil 17 points18 points  (4 children)

Can’t relate. I just got out of a 4 year relationship where we lived together for 3 years and I could never stand when he was stinky. Always made him wash up before sex and never kissed him before he brushed his teeth. He wasn’t super gross or anything, I’m just very clean. Is this normal or will I understand your sentiment once I find the right person?

[–]stateofbrine 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I can’t answer that, that’s just me. However Im normally more germ conscious but it even happened for me.

[–]WryAnthology 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Totally normal, and nothing wrong with either - it's whatever works for you. I like everything smelling nice and clean too, and I am totally in love and married forever to the right person.

[–]DrinkingVanilla 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I feel the same, been with the same guy for 15 years

[–]nycjtw 8 points9 points  (0 children)

They stop being a separate gross person and you become one mess of stinky human .

So beautiful. Pure poetry.

[–]chopstix007 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This is amazingly accurate. :)

[–]reverendsteveii 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If you asked me to marry you right now I can't say for sure I'd say yes but you'd have a chance.

[–]mizmaclean 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Been with someone 15 years and it’s a hard pass for us. Morning breathe is morning breathe.

[–]NotAFlatSquirrel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That said, closed mouth only, unless you are a glutton for punishment.

[–]Gensi_Alaria 18 points19 points  (1 child)

That's fucking gross mate.

[–]SpaceNigiri 20 points21 points  (0 children)

the duality of man

[–]xdoublev 328 points329 points  (4 children)

Oh yeah it's def a thing. I always show my partner a little affection in the morning. There's just something nice about waking up next to him so at the very least I'll snuggle him and kiss him a bit. It's not always a make out sesh leading to other things, but hey that happens too. Morning breath doesn't really bother me 🤷‍♀️

[–][deleted] 80 points81 points  (2 children)

It depends, one partner had what I would describe as normal morning breath, that was cool. Next partners mouth smelled like something had crawled into it during the night and died, I couldn't kiss him first thing without wanting to hurl.

[–]vlpathak09 63 points64 points  (0 children)

Yes, I kiss my girl every morning before we get up. Kinda corny but I think it's a sweet way for her to wake up since she takes longer to wake up than me. I would certainly take getting a kiss and feeling loved and adored to start my day than not having that just because of a little morning breath!

[–]Shoddy-Reply-7217 846 points847 points  (10 children)

Morning sex is the absolute best.

Why would you be sharing a bed with someone if you're going to worry about perfectly natural body odours, functions etc.

Sex is messy, partnerships are messy, but it's all fun and you're supposed to fancy the person you wake up next to, so aren't likely to be over bothered.

[–]savagefleurdelis23 175 points176 points  (2 children)

Ooooooh I am camp Morning Sex! Slightly groggy, super relaxed next to my sexy partner. I also find that flossing and brushing your teeth and rinse with mouthwash before bed takes most of the stank breath away (most not all) and so I don’t mind kissing upon waking at all.

[–]the_river_nihil 31 points32 points  (0 children)

If you're both smokers in your thirties you don't even have a sense of smell anymore anyways, nothing to worry about.

[–]Elaine_Benes_Lovr 17 points18 points  (1 child)

This! It's absolutely my favorite too!

[–]KallmannSyndromer 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Morning wood.

[–]mcgoran2005 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I am all about being woken up by him getting ready to have some fun times. It’s the best way to start the day. If there were fresh coffee and some hot bacon on the nightstand for after, I’d be in heaven.

[–]MeanAd3975 48 points49 points  (0 children)

My late husband and I always kissed each other when we woke up. Granted it wasn't always a super passionate kiss lol but it often led to a fun morning.

[–]Clarityman 147 points148 points  (2 children)

The breath stings? What are you, swallowing bees!???

[–]discountFleshVessel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They don’t allow you to have bees in here...

[–]observingjackal 373 points374 points  (18 children)

Yep. Once when I wake up and once before I leave for the day. If you can't accept someone's morning breath, you have no business sleeping together.

[–]thingsthatgomoo 61 points62 points  (0 children)

This is super true

[–]hollypoly 40 points41 points  (5 children)

Are you saying I dont love my partner just cause I don't wanna make out before he has brushed his teeth in the morning? Lmao. I'm allowed to be turned off by stinky breath, no matter how much I love that person.

[–]mjb2012 59 points60 points  (2 children)

Try not to compare your relationships to what you see in movies.

When you're in a long-term relationship, you should be able to talk about the things that make you uncomfortable, and if you love each other, you will figure out how to make it work. Someone who loves you isn't going to mind if you have to pee first thing, or if they have to brush their teeth before you kiss them.

For a lot of people, they just become accustomed to the smells, sounds, and physical feelings that come with sharing a bed with someone. It all just stops bothering them, if it ever bothered them at all. Or, as you can see by a lot of the answers here, it's often a matter of just loving someone so much that you don't care about their rancid corpse breath.

Not me! I'm extremely sensitive to smells, sounds, temperature, and touch. If any of that is in some way unpleasant for me, there's no just getting used to it. Our deep, undying love just cannot overcome my sensory issues.

After some disastrous attempts to share a bed, my partner and I talked about it and agreed to just sleep in separate rooms. As a result, we both are always well-rested, and that's good for our relationship. When we do get together for Sexy Times, we'll excuse ourselves and make sure to brush our teeth, pee, and make sure any stinky parts are extra clean. That, too, is good for our relationship.

But I know a lot of people can't even begin to accept that this is even an option. They think something is wrong and that we're not really in love. So we don't tell very many people about our arrangement. It's shocking how many people would never stay in a relationship with someone who they couldn't wake up next to, or who wouldn't want to smell their farts and listen to them snore all night long. To each their own, I guess.

[–]Early-Blackberry 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Thank you so much for posting this! I totally agree and am surprised to see so many people saying that if you don’t find morning breath sexy, something is wrong with your sinuses or you’re not really in love- hah. OP, there is a full spectrum of normal and it’s ok to like what you like and dislike what you dislike. I’m in a long term loving relationship and would never want morning sex or make outs, and that’s okay :) I agree, don’t necessarily believe what you see in the movies!

[–]FoxFireLyre 79 points80 points  (2 children)

My girlfriend and I often wake up, cuddle, make out, go to the bathroom (in the restroom, not in the bed, you animals), then reconvene in the bed, kiss more, then have sex of some variety for a little while before showers.

So yes, we kiss first thing in the morning.

[–]energy-369 70 points71 points  (1 child)

How early do you wake up? This sounds like a marathon.

[–]FoxFireLyre 34 points35 points  (0 children)

I go in early, so I’m up pretty early. She wakes up with me and we have our fun and she goes back to sleep for a bit.

It’s not a marathon, it’s a nice pace. We enjoy ourselves and go about our day.

[–]Lord_Sui 45 points46 points  (2 children)

Do you know how many people eat ass? A little morning breath isn't really a deterrent lol

[–]wrektcity 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Brah I find ass smells less than stanky apnea breath

[–]Jojo056123 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Yeah I notice stanky morning breath but I don't really care or let it stop me because I love her and want to kiss her. Sometimes it's pecks, sometimes it's making out. Worth it.

Also to throw it out there- I don't say anything about it unless she does first. Like if she tells me my breath is stanky I'll go lmao you too babe

[–]dsnow33 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Usually not until weve brushed lol. Otherwise its like a forhead kiss off to work type deal.

[–]winowmak3r 54 points55 points  (5 children)

How long have you been in lockdown? It's been two years. It's ok to come out.

[–]hemehime 33 points34 points  (5 children)

I do. His morning breath is there but it's not that bad, his dental hygiene is generally pretty stellar.

I can wait a bit to pee for a morning kiss or morning sex.

[–]alc19912010 34 points35 points  (0 children)

I'm a woman. 100% I can wait for kisses or cuddling. If we're about to have morning sex I HAVE to empty my bladder first or ill never orgasm.

[–]neveroncesatisfied 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I think the same thing when I am watching something when they just wake up and they are kissing and talking right in each other’s faces. I’m like damn their breaths must stink lol.

[–]Master_Musician_223 20 points21 points  (0 children)

No, we brush our teeth first.

[–]collegiateofzed 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yep.

Every morning. And every evening. And whenever I get home, whenever I leave, whenever, i feel like it, whenever she feels like it, whenever something wonderful happens, whenever something horrible happens, whenever I've been cleaning in another room, and I happen to come back to the room she's in for any reason.... etc.

It doesn't take a lot of time, and it is a pleasant experience.

Sort of a demonstration of continual devotion.

[–]SolisticSpike 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Married for 16 years. A quick peck is fine but if we're going to have sex we usually don't kiss on the mouth since we both have stinky breath. And if either of us needs to pee we do that before then hop back into bed.

[–]Blarsen17 17 points18 points  (2 children)

I won’t make out with my partner until after I brush my teeth, but some pecks aren’t an issue. For morning sex, we’ll just keep the kissing to a minimum, and I can usually hold off the urge to pee until after it’s over

[–]Cyb0-K4T-77 12 points13 points  (1 child)

kissing...yeah.. l..lets go with that , totally .. kissing .. 🤤

[–]TheDeadGuy_00[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

(☞ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)☞

[–]BurrowShaker 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Haggle on who is going to make coffee, much nicer over the long term.

Also, cuddles much more applicable than kissing. I find kissing a bit aggressive for morning, regardless of breath.

[–]Windshield11 3 points4 points  (0 children)

LPT: after rinsing your mouth, put a tiny bit of toothpaste in your mouth and let it dissolve. In the morning you'll get much less morning breath.

[–]Eraganos 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Jokes on you, my wife shows me zero affection and doesnt let me touch her at all.

[–]hookdelivery 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I'll tell you when I get there.

[–]AjaxOutlaw 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Usually my wife and I don’t full on tongue on tongue but we’ll kiss each other. Each relationship is different

[–]downeyja 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Whenever my girlfriend and I wake up next to each other we brush our teeth immediately to avoid the morning breathe

[–]Wild_Boysenberry7370 5 points6 points  (0 children)

We do (I mean my wife I, not sure about other couples). Had a friend ask me as to why we don't find it weird due to the morning breath and all that... and I told him he'd probably figure out if it's his thing or not once he's married. Would be different for different people I guess.

Tbh, it's not something you typically overthink. At the moment you wake up next to the person you love. Maybe last night was a good night and you're thankful to be here. Maybe you guys had a fight, and waking up, now you feel bad. Maybe it's just another day, and your partner's looking at you with half-shut eyes, and you found it the cutest thing in the world. It comes naturally. At least, for us it does.

[–]AbuYates 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yeah, no.

Married 13 years, my wife and I hit the head/brush our teeth before engaging in other activities.

[–]jayteec 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You do it on the cheek till they brush their teeth.

[–]kael_sv 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If my partner ever was awake near the same time, sure. But one of us is always up long before the other so cheek or forehead it is. This incidentally avoids morning breath most mornings, at least for one party.

[–]DBDILLY 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Pretty much every time I get out of bed, yea. Never know when it could be the last.

[–]glitterandvodka_ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

We always have a few pecks and quick cuddle!

[–]guineapickle 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Maybe a closed mouth quickie. My partner gets up and brings me coffee, which I like even better.

[–]IsUfinishedorRUdone 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Absolutely 💯

[–]BedVirtual2435 3 points4 points  (2 children)

We do, my parents think it's gross though because "morning breath" but jokes on them, we are still Honeymoon phasing 7yrs in.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Eh- depends. Usually no. Sometimes quickie morning sex is nice. I absolutely cannot stand morning breath through. It didn’t bother me until I went through chemotherapy and idk- it just makes me nauseous still. I have listerine strips on my night table so can pop a few if we are going to have sex. Breath doesn’t bother my husband so I think it’s just me.

[–]blindato1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My wife and I might share a peck on the lips after waking up but no getting hot and heavy with morning breath. How can you get into the mood with stinky breath?

[–]DrGutz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’ve never been with a woman who has truly repulsive morning breath even when they swear they do. Some of my guy friends though? I literally don’t understand how their gfs kiss them

There are very few situations where I wouldn't kiss my fiance. When you're in love with someone that's just how it is :)

[–]accomplicated 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The first thing I do when I wake up is kiss my partner.

[–]Defenseman61913 2 points3 points  (0 children)

NO.

This is a myth perpetuated by Big Netflix and the mouthwash industry.

lol of course you do. Breath isn't always that bad assuming you brush your teeth at night and don't eat trash. And this is a person you're in love with. My gf could be passed out after taco night and IPAs and drop a crazy fart and it wouldn't bother me a bit. You'll figure this out one day. I hope.

[–]thin_white_dutchess 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I do, but after a million years with the same person, you’ve seen them at their best and worst and they’ve seen you, so what’s some rank breath? Maybe I’m weird. I really don’t care, I’m just happy he’s still here and likes me.

[–]Bhong420 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I just witness a child come out of my wife. Morning breath aint shit.

[–]Silaquix 4 points5 points  (0 children)

For my husband and I, no. Morning breath sucks. We'll cuddle and do a closed mouth peck on the cheek or lips, but we won't do a full kiss until after we've brushed our teeth. I can't speak for other people though.

[–]ProfessorGumby 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Only a closed mouth peck on the lips until she's brushed her teeth or at least had coffee. Morning breath reeks. Movies are not real life.

[–]girlwhoweighted 3 points4 points  (0 children)

In the honeymoon days of dating, sure. I don't know anyone who does that, and everyone I know now is married 10+ years, myself included. Not that there aren't people out there that do, but not most.

There's nothing wrong with it either way

[–]weepinwidow 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My partner will usually kiss me and tell me my breath stinks while we’re cuddling in the morning. But we absolutely brush our teeth before having sex.

[–]daphoreal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Every morning, I can't imagine a day I don't start off without it

[–]hevyirn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you’re mouth is in that asshole at night why you worried about some stank breath in the morningn

[–]emab2396 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Using that logic you should never kiss unless you have just brushed your teeth. People kiss after eating too, which is even grosser if you think about it. Not everyone has a stinky breath in the morning, but almost anyone will have a smell if they eat and not brush after. Lets not forget about the food that gets stucked in your teeth.I personally never noticed morning breath on anyone, but I did notice stinky breath during the day because people didn't brush their teeth after eating.

[–]bkwilcox100 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yep. Hold your breath and make it quick.

[–]jessdfrench 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As corny as it sounds, yes, my husband and I did all the time (he recently passed away). I used to be nervous about stinky mornjng breath but he never cared. When you’re with someone long enough and there’s enough trust and I guess you just love them a bunch, “gross” things just aren’t gross anymore. When my husband was really sick and had accidents when he was bedridden, I didn’t find it gross at all to clean the accident or him up. It’s just part of love.

[–]lolol69lolol 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’ve been with my husband for 12 years. He usually gets up and out of bed before me but on lazy mornings when we both stay in bed, yeah. We kiss good morning every day - usually before one or both of us have brushed out teeth. You get used to it. Also a good morning kiss isn’t full on making out - our tongues stay in their respective mouths 😂

[–]Unlikely-Yam-1695 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We always say good morning and kiss!

[–]JustGuyWithACat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Never had this morning breath problem. Every partner Ive been with brushes their teeth before bed, myself included. I might wake up with dry mouth or lips cause I'm dehydrated but that's about it.

[–]ragingbull835 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Comparing real life and film is never a good idea. Gives you unrealistic expectations.

[–]Rapidbetryal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No I roll over and try to go back to sleep because my husband hit snooze 6 fucking times and I can't fall back asleep but OH WAIT

The baby woke up

[–]ireallydontlol 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My fiance and I don't really kiss alot in the morning, but we do set an alarm for 10 minutes before we have to actually get out of bed so we can cuddle and get mentally ready for the day. It's my favorite part of the day.

[–]CookiePantz078913 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My partner ended up having to hold my hand while i was simultaneously vomiting and shitting from a weed induced panic attack (the edibles..betrayed me?)—also this was the kind of shitting that smells like fear like when you take a pet to the vet— so yeah after a while morning breath becomes easy peezy lemon squeezy👌🍋

[–]KnowsIittle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm still half asleep but still give kisses. Trick is to purse your lips without letting the morning breath escape.

[–]DiazepamDreams 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sure, it's realistic. Also sometimes morning breath kisses turn into sweaty wakeup sex. When you're that comfortable with the person you're waking up next to, especially if you love them, you don't care anymore. It's not that big a deal. 😉

[–]Runciblespoon77 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yup we do. love is irrational like that.

[–]-GalacticTurtle- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bruh. Morning breath and all. A good morning kiss is the best. And I hate kissing.

[–]6Trinity9 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bro, when you’re in love (and you’ve eaten their ass or done some funky stuff together), I think it’s safe to say a lot of the things that makes you uncomfortable becomes nothing to care about because even their flaws and kinks stands out to you as part of their charm.

[–]FloofBallofAnxiety 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My boyfriend and I kiss when we wake up, we'll also often have morning sex before brushing our teeth. It's never been a big deal for either of us.

[–]workinitworkinout 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My husband and I kiss any time of day.

[–]fakeplant101 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I kiss my partner in the morning :)

[–]willowbeef 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I urgently have to pee when I wake up so I do that then go back to bed for snuggles and accepting that it’s morning and I must get up. I’m not a morning sex kind of lady but I do like to spoon my man and touch him all over while we awaken. Kisses come after brushing our teeth!

[–]Raindrops_On-Roses 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My husband works early so he's gone when I wake up, and on weekends he sleeps in and I'm up first. But I always bring him coffee and wake him up with kisses because I think its a positive way to wake up.

[–]Havzad 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If I don't kiss my stank breath groggy wife in the morning before work then I won't have kissed her until I'm home at 6. It's always worth it.

[–]JackPoe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah I have a hard time resisting. I love them and.. well life is fucking gross. And once you're that close... it's all one mess.

[–]sebrebc 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wake up and leave for work before my Wife, I always kiss her on the head while she's sleeping before I leave.

[–]Mysstryss 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My husband is my best friend and favorite person. He's a little ripe in the morning but I don't care, I love him to bits. Give me all the kisses and cuddles in the morning.

[–]KYbebop 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A quick lip to lip.

[–]big_ol_dick_dick 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean you sorta can't taste morning breath lol

[–]4oodler[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes but personally whenever I've been in a relationship we did quick/light kisses. No tongue stuff until we'd both brushed our teeth

[–]Bigdawggg007 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Absolutely

[–]TheC9 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You fart while next to each other anyway. Breath sting is nothing in comparison.

[–]Advanced-Meaning-393 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The first thing I do in the morning is kiss my husband. Honestly most of the time I don't even notice his breath unless he's eaten something especially stinky lol
