Kiss lipsKissing is one of those things that is so much better left in private. While Bachelor couple Courtney Robertson and Ben Flajnik are engaged in the breakup heard round the world, most fans already saw this coming. After all, how awkward were their kisses??

The thing about kissing is that it generally tells so much about a relationship. If it's sloppy and awkward, then our best guess is that the relationship is going nowhere fast. If it's hot and heavy and makes everyone jealous? Well then, hot damn! You have yourself a winner, winner chicken dinner. Of course even hot couples have off moments (lord knows I have). Luckily mine haven't been caught on camera!

Here are 7 photos we found around the web of some seriously awkward, strange, and bizarre kisses:

  • My Own Camera Kiss

    I am pretty sure this couple took this photo of their kiss with their OWN hands. That, in itself, is just awkward. Yikes. They may very well be happy, but their kiss would probably be better set to private!

  • Statue Pucker

    Sure, he's big and manly, but is he human? No? Then it's not hot!

  • Awkward Almost Kiss

    I don't know if this is a kiss or an almost kiss or a brother and a sister, but what I do know is this is AWK-WARD. Ouch.

  • The Smoosh Face

    Wedding kisses are notoriously awkward, as evidenced here. He went in strong, she got a smooshy face. Both looked highly uncomfortable. Let's hope it went better later that night!

  • Laughing Kiss

    Never a good sign when the woman laughs while you kiss her. An even worse sign? Best Western glowing in the background. Shudder.

  • Mouth to Mouth?

    Dude. Let. Her. BREATHE!

  • Blown Kiss

    There are blown kisses and then there are BLOWN KISSES. This is the latter kind. Methinks a lip lock would have been smarter here.
