    My father's new girlfriend is constantly

    groping him, in front of me. It makes me uncomfortable. Is there a polite way to ask her to behave in a civilized manner?

    No one wants to see you make out.

    Idc if you are the most attractive couple in the world w/ the most unbelievable love story ever, DO NOT DO THAT INFRONT OF ME. Thank god my bf and I are on the same page w/ PDA.. we hold hands and never kiss in pubic unless it's one quick peck every 10hrs. I personally am...

    Get a Room!

     I'm not against love you know. i think it's ok to kiss someone quick and classy otherwise it looks like lack of manners and respect and everybody around gets unconfortable. i once saw a couple making out like there's is no tomorrow in the train station and i almost choke...

    I Think Pdas Mock Ugly People...

    I think all of the attractive people are just kissing, fondling and having explicit sex in public just to mock ugly people like me.  I mean, I am objectively ugly.  Everytime I walk in Boston, the women either don't look at me at all, cringe, or outright insult me...

    I don't necessarily hate it

    but I think there is a point where it becomes socially inappropriate. For example I can understand wanting to kiss your significant other in public but if you are sucking each other's face off and it's only going to get more heated, take it somewhere private.

    LOL I mean, they're in front of my face.

    If I look, it's awkward. If I don't look-- I DON'T KNOW WHERE ELSE TO LOOK! 😂

    A short kiss or hug is fine.

    Just don't get too steamy. I have a boyfriend, too, and you don't see me dry humping him in public. That's just wrong and improper.

    Why? Why are you afraid to show affection

    and love to your lover in public? Do you not truly love them? Why else? Holding hands, hugging, kissing, making out. It's all to show love. But some refuse cos of this PDA bullsh.!t. If they refuse to show affection or love to their lover then I belive they don't truly love...

    I don't know, but today I was sitting with my

    best friend at lunch. Little did I know that her boyfriend's class was given out lunch period instead of his normal one, and so he was sitting with us. I felt a little awkward, but even more awkward when he and her started to kiss at random points as we ate together. I really...

    I don't like it. Yes I know I'm being a butt

    but come on stop it. It just reminds me him much of a forever alone girl that's never going to be loved. It just makes me feel bad about myself.

    I am an overly affectionate person in my opinion

    but I try to be respectful. Nothing more than hugs and piggyback rides. I dont wanna see anyone else groping eachother and swallowing teeth so I show the same respect.

    It's Getting Annoying

    Ok so I don't mind too much...but! What is it with lately?! Everywhere I look I'm seeing some cute couple walking along, holding hands, kissing, arms around each other. Went out tonight only to be in full view of a young couple. It was a cold night so he was comforting her...

    Only For Right Now

    You see I have never been in a relationship so I am immune to the "luveedovee" feelings at the sight of couples in love.  Of course as soon as I get in a relationship I would probably leave this group.

     Like, a little kiss, holding hands, etc. I don't mind. It's when they really start going at it that bothers me.

    Okay, I get it. Every couple really likes

    everyone to see how they 'love each other' because they're proud of their relationship, right? But how about considering that not every place you come to is a place to show it? I guess that's far off from the dictionary of the people who likes pda.

    It's Terribly Inappropriate

    Why would anyone be in support of pubic displays of affection? I have no problems with nudity, and even being naked out in the open is ok, so long as the circumstance is right. The human body is beautiful. But, pubic displays of affection? I mean, really? Why would anyone...

    Since I was a baby I really disliked PDA.

    I mean, I understand how someone would want to show their lover to the world and that crap but it becomes rather disgusting and annoying when they stop right in front of us, block our way, and start making out. I guess I also feel a sense of anger and jealousy whenever I see...
