Here are things you can do to save the situation if you meet someone who kisses terribly.
Chemistry is such a tricky thing. You could gel with someone in so many beautiful ways – conversation is spot on offline and just as spark-creating online, your friends like them, they look like the ideal thing you have been hoping for.
You know, you’ve seen enough to put a foot in, hoping that things blossom into something at the end of the day.
So you decide that you’ve been on enough dates with this charming man and that smashing babe so you lean in for a goodnight kiss on one of those nights aaaand… [insert scratching sound here] they kiss like a learner!
Like, a very very poor learner! too much saliva, too much much tongue, unnecessary sounds, bending of their faces to one side as they see Americans do in movies and worst of all, not being rhythmic about the whole kissing thing.
WHAT THE HELL?!

Yeah, I get it. Some people, no matter how gorgeous or sophisticated they look, are just not great at this beautiful, intimate activity and when you find such person, it does not necessarily have to dampen the chemistry between you and them. Here are things you could do to salvage the ‘relationship.’
There’s no substitute for this. It might be awkward to pull back and tell them to take a breather, or to slow down or any other thing you’d have them do right.
Another thing you could do would be to break the initial ungainly kiss [you may need to wipe off your lips if they’ve slobbered all over you at this point. Yikes!].
After breaking off that kiss, tell them to hold still while you kiss him or her how you love to be kissed. You can then bring them slowly into the kiss afterwards… slowly gently and gradually till they get a hang of your pattern.
A very little time. Because, frankly, kissing is not rocket science and after few times - maximum of two or three - kissing the same person you should get into a familiar pattern with them.
Come on, anyone who still struggles to get it after three, four make out sessions is quite slow, to be honest.
Regardless, give it reasonable time and things will work out just good… hopefully.
