Dear Useful...

Dear Bitter Amanda,
Is it true that a kiss tells no lies?

Dear Useful,
Wouldn't that be nice? It would save a lot of trouble, if you could know where someone stood after kissing them. Then again, there are plenty of people who want a kiss to tell them a little lie. We kiss people for all different reasons, and they all seem to make perfect sense at the time. And while sometimes a kiss is the whole truth, sometimes...not so much. You can find in it whatever you're looking for. So if you really want it to, it can be the truth, even if just for a little while.
A kiss doesn't tell any more or less lies than the people involved.
Solitarily yours,
Bitter Amanda

You have no advice on kissing, do you?

Please do me a favor, Anonymous. The next time you'd like to leave me a comment, try reading the letters before you do so. It wastes a lot less of my time. My reader didn't ask for a how-to guide. I answered the question that was written. And I did it under my own name, which I consider to be a pretty big step ahead of you.

How much honesty is there in a kiss from somebody named "Manpet"? If it's honest, is it a truth we want to hear?
