  • If a girl feels the need for constant PDA, especially Instagram/Facebook pics constantly, I feel like it's more of a show off thing than it is an actual relationship. I don't want everyone else in my business. I'll hold your hand, but constant making out and cuddling in public just shuts you out from everyone else. I hate that and it just comes off needy, so constant PDA is a no. Wait til we're alone

  • My boyfriend does PDA with me, even in front of his friends.

    1.. Do you engage in public displays of affection-getting affectionate with your lady in front of other people? --> he does

    2. What about when other guys you know are around-are you more or less into it then? --> still do it

    3. Have you ever been told to "get a room" while you were with a girl? --> it happened but as a joke

    4. Do you think women are more or less into PDA around other women? I'm personally not jealous so it doesn't really matter

    5. What's your rule for how far you'll go PDA-wise? --> always with respect for other people, as long as it stays cute

    6. Which of the following is ok to do visibly in public?
    a. Hold her hand --> we often do it
    b. Give her a quick kiss --> often to it
    c. Hug her ---> we do it
    d. Caress her cheek -->he often does it
    e. Caress her thigh --> he does it but just as a tender gesture, nothing more
    f. Kiss her with tongue --> just if we're drunk at a party
    g. Grab her ass ---> also at parties
    h. Full-on make-out with her --not when people can see us

    9. What if she got a big naughtier and grabbed your crotch under the table: hot or not? --> my boyfriend doesn't want me to do it ^^

    10. What do you think when you see couples constantly touching/grabbing/kissing each other? --> it depends, sometimes it's just too much and show total disrespect towards other people

    12. Who are you most affectionate with: a new girl or someone you've been with forever? I think for both of us it's with that person. I wasn't that affectionate before him and he was more distant with other girls

    13. It has to be asked: Have you ever had sex in a public place?
    In a public place yes but in the middle of the night with no one around

  • I like PDA. Nothing too over the top and distasteful for being out in public though.

  • So I answered for me personally, not my opinion on guys, sorry.
    1. We hold hands.

    2. With him, he doesn't care. When my friends are around I am less affectionate.

    3. No.

    4. I bet we are. And around guys who aren't their friends, I'd guess guys are too.

    5. Quick peck on the lips. The end.

    6. Which of the following is ok to do visibly in public?
    a. Hold her hand - this is okay
    b. Give her a quick kiss - this is okay
    c. Hug her - this is okay
    d. Caress her cheek - this is getting weird
    e. Caress her thigh - getting more weird, probably not okay
    f. Kiss her with tongue - not okay
    g. Grab her ass - not okay
    h. Full-on make-out with her - not okay

    7. STOHP

    8. You're one of THOSE?

    9. I would not ever do that. And if he reached for that are the date would be done.

    10. Oh good LORD, they're not that great. Get over yourselves.

    11. Uh...k...

    12. Way more affectionate with someone I've known a while. I didn't let my boyfriend touch me for the first 3 months of dating and I didn't let him kiss me for the first 6.

    13. Nope. Virgin.

    • I can see why you are a virgin , no guy is gonna wait 6 months to just kiss you.

    • Show All
    • Yeah no guy is going to wait that long to kiss you. No wonder you're still a virgin.

    • Again. We're still dating.
