Sometimes when I’m listening to people talk in close proximity, I’m tempted by the urge to suddenly kiss them. These aren’t necessarily people I’m interested in romantically: sometimes it’s a good friend, sometimes it’s someone I barely know. Both sexes. One time it was a co-worker, one time it was someone’s dad. I guess what I mean is, it’s people I like and enjoy, but not necessarily people I want to make out with. When I realize what I’ve just thought, for a second I consider actually doing it, and then I have to blink and act like I’ve heard what they just said and not smile.
I think the whole world must suppress this, like when you were younger and you had to bite your lip to keep from shouting out a swear word in the middle of a test or a church service.
