  • Make love, not war.
  • I guess it's nice sometimes. It really ticks me off when people in the supermarket hold hands. The aisle is just to small for that!
  • PDA is healthy as long as it is not the kind of PDA that should be reserved for the bedroom. Be sensitive, however, to the fact that not everyone enjoys PDA. It doesn't necessarily mean anything negative about that individual. It could simply be that their background and experiences didn't have PDA as a part of their value system.
  • Anything you wouldn't be comfortable doing in front of your grandparents should not be done as a PDA.
  • Honestly...People who are in the first couple of months of the dating are always locking lips in public but it ALWAYS WEARS OFF...ALWAYS...I say let them have there fun while there still in love cause "whatever" we all know how that felt at one time...it doesn't really bother me...Besides it will end soon as soon, as things get REAL Things will change... :)
  • I think it's acceptable with boundaries of appropriateness. That general concept of 'don't do anything you wouldn't do in front of your parents' seems well-applied in public. While affection is definitely great and wonderful in a relationship, displaying it excessively in other people's line of vision usually isn't that great. You may be in love and perhaps want to proclaim it to the world, but please don't be gross about it. A little respect for others is nice...besides, chances are those people don't really give a rip. :)
  • I don't like it when my girlfriend kisses me in public because I feel bad for all of the people that wish they could feel what we do.
  • i like how somone said do only what you would do in front of your grandparents. lol. i like him to be able to do little things like hold e and give me huggs and kisses. (but im also a huggy person) but i wouldent want him to be all over me in the middle of the supermarket. he has to have timing.
  • I love them. I think we should have more public displays of affection and less public displays of hostility.
  • I honestly don't care. I've mastered the art of ignoring other people when I'm out in public.
  • Its great! there should be more showing of affection to one another, but dont go over board
  • I think they need to get a room, if they are that passionate.
  • Anything more than affectionate handholding or hugging or brief kissing annoys me. Don't care who it is or what combination of sexes. I think there is a place for privacy in the world. Do your dry-humping and hanging all over each other at home.
  • I think a quick peck or a hug in public is very sweet.
  • It really depends on the situation. I make out with my husband at the bar, but not in line at the movies or a restaurant. There, hand holding or quick pecks are good. I don't mind couples holding hands but the whole hand in the pocket thing drives me nuts.
  • Just a reminder: we all originate from cultures where everyone slept, ate and had sex in the same room (cave or hut). I wish we could be much more relaxed about everything now, as we were back then.
  • I am not into PDA never have been. I belive there is a time and place for everything
  • But we hardly know each other!
  • Its lame, the children are watching c'mon!
  • Well, as long as it doesn't feel like I'm watching an R-rated movie then I guess it's okay. It also depends on the location. Some things that looks okay when doing them in, say, a movie house doesn't really look good on the sidewalk. Try necking each other while walking in front of me and you're likely not to try it ever again. Ever.
  • That depends what sorts of PDAs we're discussing. Make out sessions and sexcapades should be kept in private, but hand holding and maybe a little peck is ok. Keep your hand OUT of your partner's back pocket/waistband though...that's just nasty. If you wanna feel your S.O. up, do it where nobody else has to watch you, haha. Oh and hanging all over your partner and constantly holding them is too much, too...we KNOW you're together, friends, we don't need to watch you groping one another and gazing mushily into each other's eyes!
  • I dont mind if others do it,but i dont like doing it myself,some things should be kept in the bedroom lol
  • i dont like it. but that is just me. at my school, everywhere you turn there is PDA. i mean...i dont like seeing it. i like doing it though. its a bad habit...but i dunno. i just dont really like it.
  • I like PDA for the most part. As long as it is something that can be done in front of chhildren. My Grandparents would not object to more than what I would want children to see (lol)! My girlfriend like to use it to show that I'm her man. I don't like it when she does that because there is no feeling of sincerity. I love to hold hands, walk with my arm around her and an occasional kiss. She has a nice trunk so I do like to watch her walk. It is hard to keep my hands off (I know that is going too far but you asked!). I am a touchy-feely kinda guy.
  • As a bartender I see a lot of people go way to far! Kissing a little, hugging a bit, or sitting way to close is one thing but slobbering kisses, groping and sitting on a lap-dry humping kind of thing will get you thrown out when I'm on duty!
  • OK with me, affection, caring expression is good for everyone, and is much better than the bickering and fighting that's so common. Yes! Did I say common?
  • Its never bothered me, because at my school, it happens a lot around me, and I just tend to kinda...not really notice.
  • breif little kiss, hug, holding of hands, arm around the person things to that effect are acceptable. (or occassionaly when a guy stands arms wraped around the girl in a comforting position in a potentially threatening/frightening situation) however i hate seeing two people going at it. you do not need to know the stomach contents of your partner when there are other people oresent. fonling of breasts and gentailia, unacceptable. basically if you are in a place where a child could be, dont do things that would make parents cover their kids eyes or cause the child to ask weird questions (ex "daddy are that mans hands cold" "why do you ask?" "well he is warming them under that girls shirt" and dont laugh i have heard this conversation with my cousin and his kid!)
  • Its all in ur mind . if u really display it as u feel to do so in public crossing all limits of love then its acceptable.But if u do it merely to just show off ur love towards ur spouse or girl friend then its really apain in others neck. Love is really a beautiful thing . only the blessed get it in real sence. theres nothing to sahow .JUST FELL FEEL AND FEEL IT.
  • As long as its not so intimate that it goes beyond what should be private, I'm all for it. Nothing happier to me then seeing 2 people show affection. Too much hate and anger not nearly enough Love displayed in this world.
  • Coudln't care less, if I don't like it, I ignore it, why should I get bother by it?
  • I like it. Especially when it's directed toward me!
  • Keep it within limits, don't go overboard, and it's okay!
  • PDA as we call it, (public display of affection) is sometimes quite cute, especially in older couples as it shows they are still affectionate, but we do not see very often, sometimes if you see 15year old on the street it is just gross, they should save it for the bedroom!
  • Within class I think its great. Brings a smile to my face to see a genuine love in front of my eyes.
  • If it's not too much I ignore it. But, for the most part it makes me uncomfortable.
  • Holding hands, a hug, a small peck? Fine. But if there is a full blown rated R make out session going on... I get disgusted.
  • It's O.K - Sometimes as long as it's not over done -
  • I think there is a time and place for everything. Holding hands and a kiss is ok, but when it starts going further than that, GET A ROOM!
  • Depends on if it's the "may I kiss your cheek" variety or the "get a room" variety. The former is just fine with me.
  • I love to see a happy couple enjoying one another's company. Hand-holding, maybe feeding each other a bite from their dinner . . . Full on make out sessions are, however, disgusting.
  • i think holding hands and hugging are kinda cute. but when it gets passionate i think people sld move on to a room
  • GROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSS!!! Honestly I can't stand it, my former bf was into th idea but honestly the idea of other ppl looking at me doing that kind of stuff just creeps me out. I can understand why other ppl would want to, especially if they are exceptionally proud to be in a relationship with their partner or are just completely in love but in my opinion save it for private situations! ( plus not everyone wants to see that! )
  • Get a frickin' room. +4 thx for question.
  • As long as no one does anything perverted like making out I don't care. I have to deal with idiots in school who yell at me and my boyfriend for hugging. I have refurals for it..
  • For me its simple, i'm not much of a holding hands person but my girl lovesss holding mine, plus shes got big boobs and is great looking so I don't mind...We hold each other in lines, and kiss here and their, but nothing excessive like making out and stuff, no one wants to see it so don't do it.
  • I see nothing wrong with holding hands, closed kisses, hugs. every thing else should be private
  • Not a big fan of it...I don't really care to see it and I don't like doing it in front of people. Some things are better kept private.
  • Its fine. Nothing pornographic, but its nice to see people who love each other when there is so much hate in the world. I like it, it reminds me of everything thats important in life.
  • You mean like a hummer at the movies? I am all for it.
  • It's fine with me, as long as it's not all the way... or licking each other. They can make out all they want, but seeing people lick each other would be just weird.
  • its ANNOYING, you walk down the street and see people sucking each others face in public, GET A ROOM noone cares about you or your nasty displays of affection...i hope they walk into a pole or trip on a curb
  • Its a wonderful thing. I much prefer it to public display of aggression. Make love not war. ;)
  • depends what the effection is if its like they are almost fucking then that is tacky and lame. but if it is kissing and holding hands and such then that is cute and nice.
  • I don't mind. But peole who are PDA'ing so much, it makes things annoying and uncomfortable and awkward.
  • it depends on the couples limits.. how comfortable they are to kiss.. hug.. or even hold hands in public. personally i like it.=]
  • Up to a point , I think it's absolutely fine, but, there is such a thing as going overboard to the point of sickening !To those, I say, Get A Room !!
  • It's fine in my opinion.
  • It makes me feel depressed, but I'm still okay with it.
  • If it is a problem for folks to see me and my same-sex partner hold hands or have a quick smooch, its a problem for me to see that straight couple over there... and there... and there.. and...
  • name the time and place and i'll be there.
  • It's a lot better than a public display of aggression!
  • A kiss, a hug...fine. I don't wanna see no tongues.
  • I LOVE IT!!!Because it shows you love the person so much and don't care if other people see you do it.
  • In public is fine as long as you have a little sense about it. I am glad its not against the law to just touch in public, because, I could never keep my hands off Jimmy, I was never with him without some type of touching.
  • I think it is sicken, if people want to show affection then they should go home or at least to a hotel. But don't do it in public
  • depends how extreme, but i'm okay as long as everyone remains fully clothed :]
  • i am big on PDA and i don't mind wintessing it as long as no is taking off clothes, innappropriately fondling, or like eating someone elses face... its totally cool. it's good to have little ways to show your affection in public.
  • Quick hugs and pecks are ok, holding hands is cool as long as they arent making out.
  • It's nice to have but I tend to drool a lot in public.
  • The same way I feel about public displays of aggression...keep it at home, yo.
  • I like it but i first got to be comfortable with the lady
  • I am shy and rather reserved. Holding hands etc. OK, but more intimate behaviour I find very embarressing.
  • I see nothing wrong with it as long as it is appropriate, such as holding hands etc. and as long as it doesn't go over the line and become to the point you need to get a room.right about now I wish i had SOME!
  • Like doing it. Hate watching it. I'm a hypocrite that way :)
  • Sure, why not. Give me a show. xD
  • I enjoy expressing myself to the people I care about. I enjoy it when my daughter(19) takes my hand. My Son(18) puts his arm around my shoulder, or my g/f snuggles in. It's all good!
  • as long as i dont have to watch, i dont care. sometimes it is entertaining. lol.
  • Used to bother me but then my gf (ex now) got irritated with me that I didn't like it. So, I changed and started doing it. But I over did it, trying to be funny, and that just annoyed her.
  • I think that PDA could be kept to levels of the holding hands, packs and cuddles. If I see anything more then that I just feel digusted.
  • You can go to the extreme with anything, including public affection. a hug, a kiss, holding hands is all within the realm of approved public affection. Long, wet kisses, fondling, petting, foreplay and actual sex, is not within the realm of approved public affection. Going too far could constitute a lewd public act.
  • John Pennington said it VERY well.
  • I think it can be alright as long as it's not taking over bored! Like someone should not be like making out, grabbing, and things like that where ppl can see. That should be done in the privacy of there own home, not in front of everyone.
  • I hugg and kiss my wife and children whenever I want to (which is often) without regard for who is present. This is not extended to 'making out,' which I believe should be done in private. This is respectful of everyone.
  • I am happy to have a cuddle or hold hands in public and maybe a quick little kiss but that's it. I don't like seeing people snogging each others faces off, to me that is something that you do in private.
  • I like it a lot but seriously sometimes people get a little out of control with it. Keep it appropriate for where you are and who else is around you.
  • I think they are nice as long as you don't get really carried away don't get me wrong I know some people like the excitment and forbiddeness of having sex in public but it isn't something I want to see lol and btw I am one of those who has no problem with gays displaying their affection for each other as long as they aren't vulgar about it as well
  • as long as they are +/- under control I don't have a problem with them. There have, on occasion,been times when I have had to shred my tongue to keep from screaming:"GET A HOTEL ROOM'.
  • I personally don't like them because they can be nauseating... and if you want to act like that, isn't it more fun in private anyways? At least, that's how I view it.
  • When everyone is thinking they should get a room they have gone past the line of decency.
  • It actually doesn't really bother me too much because I remember what it was like to be young and inlove with someone. There are times it bothers me because it brings back memories of me and my beloved sweetie who passed away a couple of years back but I try not to let it really affect me that much.
  • IF I LIKE THE PEROSN A LOT THEN IT WILL TURN ME ON BUT IF WERE JUST DATING AND HE WANTS A PECK OOKAY BUT NO TOUCHY FEELY. AND I DONT REALLY CARE WHAT OTHERS ARE DOING UNLESS THERE IN MY SPACE IN MY BUBBLE. IF YOU DOT LIKE IT TURN YOUR FACE THE OHTER DIRECTION ITS TOO MUCH GOING ON FOR YOU TO CARE ABOUT SOME COUPLE WHO WANT TO KISS ON A NIGHT OUT.
  • I'm all for it! especially spontaneous PDOA. If a stranger wants to come up to me and be hands on........be my guest!
  • To a certain point, I like it. Like little pecks on the chhek or lips.
  • Descretion with your private matters is essential in my opinion.
  • Nothing wrong with affection so why hide it?
  • It depends really. if you're holding hands, maybe someone brings you flowers, i think a quick peck is fine. standing at a bus stop or other slightly congested area while shoving your tongue down someones throat is a little disgusting. but hey, there's no laws.
  • Affection, okay. Intercourse, no not so much.
  • That depends on your definition of "public display of affection." I think hand holding, hugging, or even kissing is fine. However, I think really getting hot and heavy or touching inappropriately is taboo.
  • a free show.
