Kristiana Kuqi told Insider that she first got the idea while travelling in Paris

She wanted to boost her confidence so she tried this!

While studying and traveling in the city of love, Kristina knew she had to take her shot at ‘love’. So she began asking strangers to kiss her in front of iconic landmarks. Soon, she found someone willing to do it.

“I was going with a good friend and just decided before our flight that I was going to ask a stranger to kiss me,” she said. “The inspiration was to capture the perfect moment and really to channel my inner confidence.”

And the shot indeed looked romantic!

“Kuqi and the stranger shared a passionate kiss in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.”

Being successful on her first try, she took another chance in Rome. Kristiana got lucky again, this time a cozier look was created.

She also got a good shot with a fireman who responded to a blaze at a wedding she attended in Kentucky.

Kuqi shared how she went about getting those kisses

First, Kristiana admitted that the task was pretty easy because so far, “no one has said no.” 

“I definitely said from the beginning that it was just a kiss for a photo,” she added. “They were all aware that it was for a picture — can’t ignore my laughing friends holding the camera.”  

“They all responded so pleasantly, and were more than happy to do it…No one has said no.”

Further explaining the process, Kuqi said she always made sure her lips were ‘attractive’ enough.

“I always made sure to put on a good ChapStick, lipstick, or gloss beforehand,” she said. “I think that made them notice my lips and definitely want a kiss. I’ve never had a bad kisser — each time it was natural and passionate.” 

The blogger also made it clear that they agreed to stay strangers, no matter how passionate the kisses were.

“It was all about spontaneity, so keeping contact wasn’t something we did.”
