Omar "Slim" White of Plush Blue Entertainment Brought Big Tigger To Krave Lounge this past Saturday for his Birthday... In attendance was Keshia Knight Pulliam and Monyetta Shaw (The Mother of Ne-Yo's kids). Much was made of Keshia kissing V-103 DJ Big Tigger for his birthday.
Some blogs implied that Tigger (who is long rumored to be Teh Ghey) and Keshia (who is rumored to be a lipstick lesbun) are a couple.
But body language analysis tells us a different story.
The holidays are a time when men are the most confused about a woman's hidden agenda. This is the time of year when women suddenly remember your phone number, or they show up on men's doorsteps out of the blue. This is also the time of year when women drop their inhibitions around men. This is when confusion reigns: how can you tell when a kiss is romantic or platonic?
According to Body Language experts, a romantic kiss is softer and lingers a second longer than just a quick, platonic peck.
"Soft lips that linger just an extra second clearly say, 'I'm happy to see you and I wish we could do more of this,'" says Susan Quilliam, author of Body Language Secrets: Read the Signals and Find Love, Wealth and Happiness. Notice, too, whether other body parts get into the act. "People express warmth by hugging with their full bodies," says Stella Resnick, Ph.D., a Los Angeles-based psychotherapist and author of The Pleasure Zone: Why We Resist Good Feelings & How to Let Go and Be Happy. "They press their hearts together to reestablish their intimacy after spending time apart."
"Kissing with hard, closed lips communicates tension and avoidance of intimacy," says Quilliam. "Hugging" with most of your bodies separated is also a sign of obligation, not intimacy. Explains Dr. Resnick: "Your chest can become concave as your heart literally pulls away from the other person."
