I Don't Mind Public Displays Of Affection

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,336 People

    I really don't most days.

    I think seeing couples holding hands is sweet and makes me smile when I notice it. I like it when I catch one of those I will miss you so much goodbye hugs or even better the I missed you so much hugs where it is clear they care for each other a lot. I don't mind people kissing...

    This is one of my hypocritical moments,

    but I hate to see two men displaying affection to each other. I'm not homophobic or even care if they're able to marry or not, but I don't want to see it. It upsets me a lil bit.Lol (Sorry gay men)

    if you know what I mean. I also love seeing mother and daughter affection too.

    I don't mind seeing people kiss in public.

    It doesn't matter their sexual orientation nor their age. I don't care if they are hot or not. Everyone is allowed to expressed their affection to the person they love. Perhaps there is such thing as getting carried away, but I don't mind catching people making out. I mind my...

    I mean holding hands,

    hugging, kissing in a caring way...more intimate things are meant for privacy in my belief, but I´m always ready to show my affection for the people I like... get your cheeks and nose ready for a kiss to land there at any moment if you are with me...lol...

    There is nothing wrong with a PDA as long as couples aren't tearing each others clothing off or anything. I think public displays of affection are cute, it shows that you really love your partner and are comfortable & proud enough to let it be shown to the world<3

    I love public displays of affection.

    It's nice to see that there is love in this world. I used to love being out with my gf back in the day and being so excited when she'd hold my hand or kiss me in public. All that seems to disappear once you get married...or at least it did for me.

    My last partner never

    even wanted to hold hands in public. I feel like she was ashamed, not of me, but of being gay. I would try to hug her at school in the hallway and she would stand there awkwardly, frozen in place. Her mom didn't accept her for who she was and I think she thought other people...

    Why Would I?

    I love PDA's, it's a way to let the world know that she is mine and I love her. Look but don't touch for I guard what is mine. It's also a way to let her know that I am proud to be seen and let everyone know we are together, lovingly, happily, and completely. As I've read some of...

    I'm conflicted here. Like,

    you'll never hear me sneer at an old couple kissing in public, saying "ugh. PDA. Get a room." But if it's a teen couple and you can tell by the way they're going at it that they don't really love each other and that they're just horny and can't keep it in their pants until they...

    Love Seeing PDA'S

    I am a worldly woman at age 44, an interracial wife, and mom of 11. I love to see many forms of PDA on the street, in restaurants, cinemas, and at church. When my black husband and I, a white female, are standing in line for movie tickets or checking out at the grocery store, he...

    A Sweet Thing

    A young couple were in my store today. They are both slightly 'challenged'. (I apologize if that is not the politically correct term). They do live on their own and recently got married. The lady was looking at something and the man walked up to her, took her hand in his and...

    So Kiss Me...

    It so depends on the culture you're living in. In the more traditional countries of Asia, you hardly EVER see a couple locking lips in public. In some, you could get arrested! I'm glad I'm in neither. PDAs (and yes, even the tech kind) are quite common here now than ever...

    I'm Guilty...

    I'm guilty of PDA. I've kissed in public. She has touched me. We don't go crazy like making noise or dry humping. It is quick. So quick that a passer by may not even notice. PDA? If it is done with discretion, I don't care. It can be a het couple, a gay or a lesbian...

    I don't mind if you don't mind me watching.

    ;) Seriously, though, I think love (and lust) is beautiful and I see no reason to hide it behind closed doors. If it's a couple I don't find attractive, I'll look elsewhere, but otherwise, it's hard not to appreciate.

    PDA YAY!

    I love sharing intimacy in public. It makes me feel a part of a separate world that only my husband and I exist. It helps me feel secure and confident to know I have support no matter who's around. Sometimes I can go a little far and sneak dirty touches when I think no one is...

    I don't mind PDAs. I'm secure enough in myself

    that seeing same sex couples holding hands or kissing doesn't bother me. Why bother a couple who happen to be in love? It seems like every week another state or country allows same sex marriage.

    public.If someone gets surprised...maybe they learn something new about love and care. She's so cute,how could I hold myself back. For her I bring the moon and the stars if I could. She seems my all...yet I gotta forget that idea.

    There is a huge difference in keeping it classy

    and being vulgar! I love holding the person I'm with by the hand or arm. Sneaking a kiss or having them hug me from behind. No need to invite the world to what should be considered sacred space. With that folks.. I plan to keep it classy!

    and kissing for an extended period of times. I do not mind two females exchanging PDA's in public. If they are in love then go for it. I would never be rude to couples exchanging hugs and kisses.

    Kisses Are Beautiful To See, To Receive.

    To see someone kissing another in public is endearing. To feel those kisses is stimulating. To welcome someone with a kiss is a civilised thing of good worth.
