Public Affection? What is your take on it?Page 1 of 10    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
I am only asking because I love to show my affection in public to a significant other no matter where or who is present at the time. Alot of people that I know or have spoken to said no way, not in public...save it for behind closed doors....Is this a dying practice?

there is nothing wrong with holding hands or walking with your arm around your girl and sneaking a little kiss once in a while. i actually enjoy seeing 2 people in love. the thing i don't like is the couple that should be behind closed doors and ain't. i think you get the pic.

I dont necessarily make out in public.

well, OK yeah, I sheepishly admit i do from time to time

But not right in front of people. I mean How else is it going to progress to something more heated if there are people right beside ya. Make sure there a re bushes near by

I think public displays of affection are fine.....nothing nicer then holding hands, kissing or hugging your sweetie.......if clothes start flying though it may be time to get a room.....lol ;-)

Hold hands, run hand up a bare arm...stroke my back...lean into me when standing side by side, stand a little "too close" when standing behind me...it is all good :)

i THINK PDA IS A GOOD THING IT ALSO SO SHOWS YOU THAT YOUR LOVED ONE IS NOT AFRAID OF SHOWING YOU HOW HE OR SHE FEELS ABOUT HE OR SHE WANTS THE WHOLE WORLD TO KNOW THAT THEY ARE IN LOVE WITH AND THAT EVERYONE SHOULD FEEL AS HAPPY AS YOU DO

There's nothing I like more than having a quick kiss on my lips, holding hands, or maybe a 10 second grab of the ass! If a guy starts to cop a feel or further, no, that's not cool, even though half the fun is getting caught, if you know what I mean.

ahwolf, it all depends on the partners involved. Some like it, some don't.

Goodfellow always reaches for my hand when we cross streets (ooh Daddy!) We hold hands a lot in public and hug and kiss. We've had people stop and smile at us and one lady couldn't stop staring at us with this odd grin; kind of made us feel weird.
Goodfellow, in addition to other great attributes, is a certified message therapist; so he rubs my neck, shoulders and hands everywhere we go. I can't get enough of that!

I also want to add that I think it is very healthy and good for kids to see people in love and happy with each other. Sometimes they get a jaded view of the world from their homelife and should learn that not all families have marital problems.

Getting a room.... I volunteer....

Seriously though... If you are in love, and happy (is there any other way?) You should not have a problem, holding hands, hugging, kisses, having ones arm around the others waist... this is all healthy and good... and is a positive statement to the world...

There are too few happy people in the world...

People in love, and showing it, radiate it, and it affects everyone... I have even been known to be caught skipping hand in hand...

I refuse to limit by PDA's to society's norms. I'm in love, what's wrong with that? sincew when is it a crime to show someone you care deeply about some love and affection? A casual kiss, your hand on their back, etc. are al;l appreciated by the person you love. Who would you rather hurt - your significant other, or someone who feels stuck in a non-loving relationship? That's why they're pissed, beccause they're jealous of what the two of you have

^^ Excellent point, so to differenciate between the two

Public display of affection is done purley out of love for your partner.

Exhibitionism or gratuitous displays is solely done for attention.


It's the latter most find unnecessary.
