Your feelings of public displays of affection (pda)?

When you see a couple showing pda, how do you feel? Are you accepting of it? Do you do it? Do you not care or do you hate it? By pda I mean: kissing, touching, groping, licking, nuzzling, cuddling and other affectionate gestures of that nature. Feel free to comment why you chose what you did.

  • I wouldn't say I hate it, but it seems immature and childish to me. I mean hand holding/hugging/kiss hello/goodbye sure. But when you walk into a room in a public place and see two grown individuals mackin on each other it just makes me wanna smack em upside the head and tell em to grow up a little.

    • Or when you get on a bus, and see a high school "couple" sitting beside each other, gazing so theatrically into the others' eyes. Then one of them leans in...and they kiss. OH, how romantic. May the stirring in my loins never cease. Puhlease.

  • Personally, I'm used to France where it's a normal part of the culture. People in most Latin countries thik we I the US are cold and inhibited, and only warm up if there's money involved.

    Gee, where would they get that silly idea?

  • I hate it, mostly because I cannot relate to it, so I hate seeing other people do things I can never do. not that I would go crazy on a girl in public in the middle of a street. I am too socially anxious to look people in the eyes never mind kissing.. I don't even know what a kiss feels like or going on a date for that matter. But I think that I hate it a lot more when I see young teens/high school students do that stuff

  • Kissing and holding hands are things that I'm okay with in public. Most other things? No.

  • I hate when couples I’m hanging out with start touching and kissing each other right in front of me, as if I’m not even there -- it makes me feel so uncomfortable. But I generally don’t mind seeing strangers display affection, as long as they’re being classy about it, and not like, groping each other in a grocery store or something.

    Personally, I’m not big on PDA. Cuddling is fine, and maybe a few small kisses, but that's pretty much it for me.

  • I think it's quite sweet. Especially when all you hear about now is how people hate each other and about crimes and stuff, it's nice to see some love in this world! As long as they're not totally tongue kissing and groping and sound things that should be private. That's when I'm bothered by it. But cute quick kisses, hand holding, hugs... I'm cool with that!

    Do I do it? Yeah! We hold hands and kiss and stuff. Nothing gross and I don't care if anyone's bothered by it. I don't do it in front of my parents though - that's kind of weird lol.

  • I'm okay with holding hands, hugs, and a kiss or two. But full on making out, touching, licking and groping, hell no. Some things are better kept in private. Sure, we could all just "look away" or whatever, but that first accidental look was enough to make me uncomfortable and irritated. It's great that they like each other and all that, I just don't think it's appropriate to go all out.

  • There's such a wide level of the pda you listed, I'm fine with quick kisses, hand holding, etc., but hands on the butt, makeouts, groping those aren't for the public eye imo. I love seeing the cute pda but the more sexual pda should be kept for their sexy time(;

  • I hate it! A simple peck on the lips is okay but all that groping, swallowing each other tongues, all that is a little too much. Some things need to be saved for the privacy of their own rooms.

  • I don't care... If it goes beyond kissing (quick pecks), I suggest they take it to the bedroom.

    The kind of stuff I do with my boyfriend in public is holding his hands. I mean, he'll grab/slap my ass but that's when we're in areas where no one can really see what he's doing.

    I'll give him quick pecks on the lips, vice versa. But that's it.
