  • Within reason, sure. I will hold my gfd's hand or maybe wrap my arm around her.

    Context is everything. At the beach, I might go so far as to hug and hold her. In a more formal setting, I might, if it is the first time I've seen her all day, just give her a quick kiss on the cheek.

    However, I always make it a point to at least show some affection. I love her with all my heart and I am proud of her and I don't mind if people know that. In fact, I want them to know that.

    She is - and the three babies she has given me out of love - the best thing that ever happened to me.

  • As a single, it becomes horribly awkward at times. Like, dude you love him, go fuck him but do that behind closed doors please. I don't want to see your tongues clashing for God's sake

  • Looks pretty stupid. You know how the couple who shows the most public attention are usually the ones who eventually breakup? Well that's because they're infatuated with each other which honestly never last long. Also acting like you and your significant other are staring a Disney movie just seems childish.

    • As a matter of fact just to prove my point I wanna follow you. I want to make sure you're the first person I ask for advice.

    • I agree with @21feminist that learning from mistakes of other people is also a way of 'Gaining Experience' & Asker, just because someone is elder or have made mistakes or has "Seen more life", that does not necessarily mean that they have more experience or that they have more refined thinking, & surely doesn't mean that opinions of people younger than them ain't worth just because they're less experienced in their eyes, as a Matter of their age. Knowledge, intelligence & Thinking/ analysing abilities also play a major role for same & they vary highly from person to person & that's the reason why age alone cannot be a determinant for wisdom or experience or whatever, that's just an old stereotype.

  • I do show her love, but I also be polite so no one gets uncomfortable or jealous. I usually do things that canโ€™t escalate any further, such as a kiss. I mostly give back scratches, leg rubs, or play with her hair

  • Yes I would. But in a respectful way for everyone. For example. I'd give her kisses on the cheeck or forehead. Hold her hand and hugs. But thats about it. Id also tell her she looks beautiful or I love her... Little compliments like that. Keep it respectful for all parties involved.

  • It kind of varies. Some people will sit there and just kiss and kiss in front of their friends which is awkward but like a peck here or there and holding hands is fine. I'm fine saying I love you in front of them too, but I don't want others to feel put off by our actions cause we're not there to show off, we're there to hang out.

  • As long as it is not gross. Holding hands, hugs, kisses. That's completely fine. But making out continuously in front of other people is not.

  • Personally, it realy depends on how close these friends are to both of us (my partner and I), if they're close friends, I don't mind. Of course, it would depend on my partner's thinking as well, but personally, I don't realy care, as long they're good friends.

  • No... not in front of friends or people in general. Holding hands, a kiss on the cheek, a hug is fine though. Just no making out. That's just make others awkward.

  • It depends of what kind of "affection" we are talking about. Those ones who keep kissing and hugging each other in public seem a little immature. But things like take her for the hand or for the waist is ok

  • We deal with couples being the root of most tension it can be a good thing for just enough PDA to provide a warm happy atmosphere. Too much and it becomes rude and impolite..

  • I don't take it too far, because I know it makes other people uncomfortable, but if we're hanging out with friends, especially if there are other couples there, I will kiss him, lean into him, or put a hand on his knee or lower thigh. Nothing more than a few seconds, just reaffirming my affections.

  • I'm in an ldr but if we were together (or whenever we text with a friend in a group chat) I don't show any kind of PDA. Maybe if we were together holding hands or a hug would be ok for me but anything beyond that would make others uncomfortable or cringy and that's the last thing I want.

  • He puts his arm around me. We do that so we can hint that he's mine and I'm his when we're in public.
    Other than that, we save the good stuff for when we're alone ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • To a certain extent. We hold hands, link arms or put our arms around each other. If we're sitting, it's normal for us to either hold hands or for one of us to have a hand on the other's knee or thigh. I prefer not to do more than that.

  • Yes of course, sure i guess that friends could be uncomfortable but that shouldn't stop you from showing your appreciation to your s/o. Friends will have to pretty much suck it up. There is a limit tho, its better not to be fully making out and stuff in front of friends because its a little awkward for the couple and the friends. Hugging holding hands kisses here and there, all perfectly fine. Its important to let each other know you live them no matter what

    • I'm not saying people are thinking it. It's just that I want them to know it.
