Whats the deal. Do you people honestly enjoy them?
I got one once and it just wasn't fun and it was embarrassing.
Had to go into work the next day and endure disgusting/perverted comments from customers as I couldn't hide them sufficiently.
I have a friend who still gets them after being with their partner for years - don't understand why they still do it as they're both over the age of 13 and in a long-term relationship. There's something about hickies that just seems really kiddy and immature.
Just her face coupled with the imagined sound of a hoover starting up.
She was Australian and, I suspect, not overly bothered about her UK career prospects.
I remember her coming in one day smelling of booze and wearing the same clothes as the day before. Which unfortunately happened to be a low-cut top completely failing to hide a huge lovebite on her chest.
She must have got some looks that morning and/or someone had a word as after lunch she was sporting a bright blue plaster which wasn't a great deal less conspicuous.
but below the neck, it's just tacky and looks bad and as someone said up there, just seems really teenage to be seen with them in public
I understand the getting of one is pretty good, but the next day do you really look at it and think "Yeah, I like that"?
I mean I don't fawn over the things, but I don't mind it if only I can see it
Surely there would be far greater things to remember than someone sucking on your neck...
I mean, I can go without them, I think I've kinda misunderstood the OP though, I was more talking about biting rather than ugly hickies. And really, this kind of thing happens more by accident right? They or you don't go out your way to do it, it just kind of happens sometimes.
I'm speaking from distant hazy memory :)
I just feel that to do it in such an obvious place strikes me asa kind of savage possessiveness/ submissiowhich again, is fine if both parties are ok with it, but which i have no desire to be part of by witssing its aftermath.
In short- it's clatty.
i just mean in places that are usually covered by clothes anyway. so you wouldn't be "proudly boasting" them, you'd be quietly keeping it to yourself :)
It was stupid. In the end I let her do it on my arms instead so I wouldn't get hassle at work.
is there biting involved?
with a hickie there's biting and sucking. It creates a bruise like mark on you. Popular among tweens because it's physical proof of the sexytimes you've been having. Bit needy. It's nice receiving them though tbh.
without leaving an embarrassing reminder the next day for you going into work!
except for that one weirdo in the back of the class that everyone made fun of. Haven't heard of anyone doing it post the age of about 13.
(with my dick, ladies & gents, MY DICK)
I forgot love bites were anything other than a frankly outstanding def leppard song. Elderly.
