Don't like hickeys, it makes the person look cheap. I personally believe that some people like to mark their territory. It makes them feel SAFE!

Now you're his. At least until it goes away. If it hurts really bad, that means he did it too hard. He's an amateur.

Some guys just like to leave a mark, just like some women. Its all in what that person is into. Next time just ask him to be more aware because you didn't like it. If you don't communicate to he won't know what you like and don't.

Not all guys give hickeys. For those who do, it is like a dog marking its territory. They also are pretty insecure in their relationships. They think that by giving you a hickey, other guys will leave you alone (i.e., he marked his territory) If he really respected you, he would have stopped if you asked him to stop.

I haven't done thay since I was 16. I see now how childish it is. I guess he has to show everyone that you were intimate with him. Don't let him do it anymore, to me it looks cheap.

the guy i was dating use to do it all the time i asked him why he said they were sexy but my friends agreed withthe majority that he was marking his territory. But Before we ended he stopped. So i am guessing that they were right he may be insecure because when it was at the ending of our situation he no longer did it.
