PDA

PDA - Public Displays of Affection...
I am not into PDA. Let me clarify: a quick kiss on the cheek, a gentle hug, holding hands... that's all good. Anything more simply not appropriate.

I don't believe that you need to hang all over each other at the mall. The mall is for shopping not for shagging. The same is true for the high school hallways and bus ramps. Tonsil hockey is not a sanctioned sport -- for a reason. I also don't believe you need to feel each other up while blocking the view of the people behind you at a polo match. That's not the kind of wild ride we came to see.

There are many ways to show affection without letting it all hang out, so to speak. A wink, a glance from across the room, the brush of an arm, the refilling of the mimosa glass - those say so much more and it keeps the intimacy private between those who love each other.

The rest of the world does not need to be involved...
You know?

I agree 100% and then some! OK I know that's not really possible...but I'm totally with you on this one.

I work in retail. Some will stand in front of the register to pay and they are groping each other...blech. I don't need to see that! A kiss or hug or holding hands? Maybe, sweet even, but the full out grope? No, no thank you. Shudder.
