    out of this world

    Kissing Levi might feel absolutely amazing. Not kissing him was totally out of this world.

    what does it mean?

    This does not make sense.

    "out of this world" means amazing.

    Tinkerbell, I agree with susiedqq! The sentence does not make sense to a native speaker because if something is 'out of this world', it is fantastic.

    To paraphrase the sentence: Not kissing him was totally fantastic.

    If 'kissing Levi might feel absolutely amazing', then how could not kissing him be totally fantastic? The concept just doesn't make sense to me.

    What is the source for your examples?

    Oh, I understood. You mean both sentence's means are same. But it is written in a book. It wasnt me who made the sentence.

    Tinkerbell, the meaning of each sentence is totally different. In fact, the second sentence does not make sense at all!

    'Kissing Levi might feel absolutely amazing'! The meaning of this sentence would be clearly understood by a native speaker: Kissing Levi might be a fantastic experience for the girl! It might be an 'out of this world' experience for her!

    Not kissing him was totally out of this world. The meaning of this sentence would NOT be clearly understood by a native speaker. Not kissing Levi would leave the girl wondering if he was a good kisser or if his kisses would excite her. Not kissing Levi would never be an 'out of this world' experience.

    Does this help you?

    Re: out of this world

    can I translate in this way:

    Kissing Levi would be a fantastic experiment for me. Not kissing Levi would be a loss for me. or I'll miss an amazing opportunity/or I'll be regret ??
