You purse your lips when annoyed or thinking, lick it when tensed, bite it when nervous. You knowingly or unknowingly express your mind’s workings through your lips. But the shape of your lips can do more than physically express your emotions; they can reveal a lot about the kind of person you are.
“The most important thing your lips speak to is [what you’re like] in relationships and how giving you are,” says Jean Haner, an expert in face reading and author of The Wisdom of Your Face, according to Cosmopolitan. “You were born with the features you have for a reason — every feature is linked to a part of your personality and they all work together to represent who you are.”
So what kind of lips do you have and what do they say about you?
1. Full lips
If you have full lips, then you’re the kind of person who others describe as caring and kind. You emit an aura that makes people feel safe and secure with you, knowing that they can count on you to be there for them. Most of the time, you’d drop anything to help the people you love and more often than not, you can be found doing random acts of kindness with strangers, human or animal. Of course, there are times that you just want to relax and have someone take care of you for a change, but in a stressful situation, your first thought is about others before worrying about yourself. It’s in those times that finding a partner who can take care of you while you take care of others is essential.
2. Thin lips
Where others call you a “loner”, you call yourself “self-reliant.” If you have thin lips, you’re the kind of person who, no matter the environment, can adapt and cope with it. And so what if you like to be on your own? It’s your way of just recharging and finding peace. That’s not to say you have no one around you. It’s just that your social circle is pretty small but you like it that way because you know that there is genuine love and care between you and them. When it comes to meeting new people though, you’re usually very approachable and people appreciate the way you award them respect. Though you might find it hard opening up to your partner, they know what they mean to you when you finally do.
3. Fuller upper lip
If you have an upper lip fuller than the lower lip, you’re the type of person who is in touch with their emotions and has a zest for life. Your charisma and passion to live in the moment is like a siren song for others, drawing them to you in the hopes that they can imbibe some of your energy. You also have a way with crowds, able to find humor and joy in any situation and people are drawn to the confidence you exude. Sometimes though, you just want to find a quiet spot, breathe in the air and not think about anything before you get back into your animated life. And for that, you need a partner who can keep up with your lifestyle.
4. Fuller lower lip
If you have a plumper lower lip than the upper lip, you’re the type of person who believes that adventure is around every corner. You love meeting new people, making new friends, going to new places and in general, just going where the wind takes you. Your thirst for knowledge makes you a great leader, whether you are one or not. But just because you flow with the wind doesn’t mean you don’t understand what it means to be grounded and be there for the people you love. While others might call you flighty, those who know and love you, including your partner, have faith in your loyalty towards them. They know you’ll be there for them when they need you.
5. Rounded Cupid’s Bow
If you possess a rounded Cupid’s Bow, you’re the kind of person who is very sensitive. You are in tune with your full range of emotions and as a result, are very empathetic, something that draws others to you. Your kindness sometimes goes unnoticed because people might just be used to it, but for you, it’s just a part of your nature and you don’t expect any rewards. But it’s this very compassionate side of you that makes you such an easy partner to be with. You may fight with your significant other but you understand the importance of resolution and will ensure that neither of you goes to bed angry. Your willingness to fix any issues is what your partner loves most about you.
6. Peaked Cupid’s Bow
If you’ve got a peaked Cupid’s Bow, it means you’re the kind of person who is quick-minded, creative, and able to communicate well and effectively. You have a habit of offering honesty, sometimes in a way that not many can handle, but that also means that people can trust you. Your loved ones and your partner are able to understand that your honesty doesn’t come from a mean place and that you don’t mean to hurt people, even if others don’t get that. And no matter what situation you’re put in, you are able to find solutions that not just benefit you but also the people around you, which to them seems unexpected because they don’t always realize the depth of your caring nature.
