The most frustrating part of being a shipper is witnessing those kisses that just don't count.
They're usually placed in a show for comedic effect, to keep a character's cover, or really, just to drive viewers crazy.

The kiss doesn't usually start up a romance for the couple as it didn't happen because of the characters feelings for each other. But sometimes, it does bring those feelings to the surface.
We created a slideshow below of 17 kisses that didn't count!
Ryn and Maddie's goodbye kiss - Siren
Ryn didn't actually know what a kiss meant, so she accidentally developed the understanding that it's something you do to say goodbye. Maddie was surprised, but it didn't seem like she was opposed to what was happening.
Veronica and Jugheads "evening the score" kiss - Riverdale
They may have only kissed to "cancel out" Betty and Archie's kiss, but did anyone else see some chemistry here? Like it or not, these two have potential.
Conrad and Nic's on-call room kiss - The Resident
This one might be pushing it because it definitely did count for Conrad. But Nic was just going along with it to lock him in the on-call room.
Kat and Alex's drunken kiss - The Bold Type
This kiss was just meant to be hilarious and nothing more. Kat was so drunk that she planted one on Alex and the "WTF" look on both of their faces was the funniest part of the episode.
Jim and Pam's victory kiss - The Office
Pam was drunk as a skunk throughout this entire episode. After she won a Dundie, she was so excited that she ran up to Jim and planted one on him. Even though it obviously meant something to Jim, they never talked about it again. Odds are, Pam didn't even remember it the next morning.
Meredith and Alex's dream kiss - Grey's Anatomy
Thank goodness this didn't happen in real life. As much as we love these two, we couldn't stand them being anything more than best friends.
