1. The First Date Kiss
One of Chuck and Sarah's earliest kisses was a kiss they used to maintain their cover as two normal people in a relationship. It was short, there was no tongue involved, but still sexy. If you decided to have your first date with someone be a New Year's Eve date, then go with a simple early era Chuck/Sarah style kiss... unless things are going mind-blowingly amazing.
2. The BFF Kiss
So you and your bestie decided to hit the New Year's Eve party together, and you're still standing together giggling and having a blast at midnight. Then take Chuck's lead and go in for a goofy peck on the cheek, nose, or forehead. No, you're not getting a grandiose kiss, but you are kicking off the New Year with your closest friend. It doesn't get much better than that.
3. The Hello Sexy Stranger Kiss
If you find yourself in one of those real life romantic comedy moments at midnight, then it might be a good time to try out a next level Chuck and Sarah kiss. When their relationship became the real deal their kisses became super hot. New Year's Eve tends to sweep people away on a boat built out of emotions. If you and that sexy stranger are vibing, then kiss like nobody's watching (because they're not, everyone's faces are stuck together).
4. The First Kiss Kiss
After some riling from a special agent played by John Larroquette, Chuck gave Sarah a kiss to remember in Season 2. If you've been out a couple of times and you want to take your relationship from casual to Facebook official (that's still a thing, right?), then go all in on that New Year's Eve kiss and see what happens.
5. The Ultimate PDA Kiss
Chuck and Sarah's first real kiss would have made a Jane Austen character blush. If you are super in love and not afraid to show it, then kiss your significant other with the kind of passion that would make Sarah Walker proud.
