Here's Why You Close Your Eyes When You Kiss Someone

Hee hee, such an interesting study!

Ever wondered why we automatically close our eyes whenever we kiss someone? Well, it's something scientific!

According to a group of psychologists from Royal Holloway University in England, it has something to do with concentration. They found out through an experiment on vision and tactile sensory that it's impossible or difficult for us to process something when we get distracted by another visual stimuli. (via RadioOne.fm)

They found that this is the case when they asked a group of people to search for letters while their hands received vibrations. The result? The eyes are working more so the tactile responses were less felt. So when you kiss someone, it's difficult to open your eyes. And when someone opens their eyes while kissing someone? It just means they're not into it. Yikes!
