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?

Anywhere.

Those who are uncomfortable with it, IMO, have issues.

If I love a person, I don't care where we are, I'll show it.

If other people have issues with it, they can deal with it themselves.

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 ;-)

A display of affection in public is great. Groping her and sticking my tongue down her throat to taste her spleen is crass and uncalled for. I've had moments in my life where I was lonely and bitter and such things annoyed me but those were rare and short-lived, even then I knew I was the one with the problem. Most of the time, seeing two people who are affectionate in public puts a smile on my face and reminds me of times when I also felt that way about a woman.

Go for it, don't hold it in. What good is it if you don't share it with her?

I think it depends on the level you take it to, kissing, holding hands, hugs I'm fine with, the all out almost foreplay in public I'm not so sure about, there are times however when even that is Ok, you know the OMG I missed you at the airport.

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 it's a good thing as long as it's an appropriate type of display and not a rude one.

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.

I like holding hands, cuddling, hugging, whispering sweet nothings into my guy's ear and little kisses in public. Gropping, major tongue action, etc.. should be kept to places where the two of you can escape and be alone. It's just respectful in my books. You wouldn't do it in front of your boss, your family, so why put strangers through it (and little children possibly watching). If it makes even one person around you feel awkward and uncomfortable why do it. You might say because it is your choice to express yourself freely in public. To that I would say then why not just pee on the sidewalk, walk around nude, etc. LOL.

In my books it's much more fun to tease each other in a more discreet way all day long and have to wait until you get to be alone.

Well I really dont think there is anything wrong with demonstrating how you feel for your significant other in public, it is too bad that so many hold out and are so afraid to show their true feelings, I mean you should always go with what your feeling. I think it's all good, go with what your feeling, sneak a kiss in when you feel like it, hold hands, dont be afraid to show your mate you care..........

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.

Kissing, holding hands, hugging, is fine. But if you're grinding up against eachother, have your tongue down their throat for 10 minutes, and there's groping in all areas, then it's time to get a room.

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...
