Since antiquity, a soft well-placed kiss on the cheek or hand signifies a form of greeting between two people, a kiss on the forehead speaks of reassurance and trust, and chief among them is one shared by people who are absolutely in love with each other. Sharing a kiss with your better half increases the bond of love and romance between you, deepens intimacy, and is therapeutic.

The origin of National Kiss Your Fiance Day is sketchy at best, but the history of kissing can be traced back 3,500 years to ancient India. A set of historians believed that kissing began from mouth-to-mouth feeding mothers did for their children back in the days when mothers chewed harder food materials and fed them directly to their children, but the second school of thought backed by historical Indian writings found that kissing evolved as a result of the Indian way of greeting which involved rubbing noses together. In some of such cases, their noses slipped and their mouths met, making them discover the pleasurable existence of kissing.
The conquering armies of Alexander the Great subsequently spread the kissing culture from India to other societies.
