    We hold hands, I lean on him when we’re shopping, and we kiss (little pecks). I won’t do anything that I’d be uncomfortable seeing another couple do. Small amounts of PDA are definitely okay, depending on the environment. There are places where nothing is really appropriate.

    @FromA2B2013:  We’re similar. We’ll hug and kiss in public, but not to an extreme.

    We hold hands, kiss, I lean on him, etc… Nothing too extreme.

    @FromA2B2013:  You don’t rattle a tiger’s cage and then go on your merry way…unless we’re home, we’re fairly non-affectionate, but its obvious we’re married.

    We’ll hold hands and give each other the occasional small peck.

    If I can *hear* your pda, you need to take it down a notch. If I think you need to go wash your hands before shaking mine after SEEING your PDA, you need to take it down a notch.

    That’s my rule of thumb.

    We hold hands, give pecks and stuff in public. Not really big on PDA.

    we hold hands and kiss. but pretty much respect everyone around us. we dont feel the need to always sit by each other when out. We ususally save it all for when we are alone. He said hes always felt bad for his single friends and would never want to rub it in in front of them.

    We hold hands sometimes and share an occasional peck, but no snuggly wugglies or tongues involved. We both think that’s annoying.

    @FromA2B2013:  Very similar.We hold hands, hug, and an occassional peck when the time is right.

    My friend who just got married and her husband are ALWAYS making out with each other in front of us, grabbing each other’s butt, and making comments like “sexy ass” when they walk by. It is rather uncomfortable. Then, when she sits on his lap and touches him inapprpriately, they lookDOWN at us, like we are less of a couple becuase DH and I chose to keep all that for the bedroom.

     

    I guess, for me, I am not so insecure in other areas of my relationship that I need to make up for it with heavy PDA.

    We’ll hold hands sometimes and kiss or hug, but I would never grope, makeout, etc in public. No one wants to see that.

     

    A few years ago we went to dinner with my stepsister and she brought her new BF along – OMG it was so awkward. They were all over each other at the table. My FI and I just sat there in silence waiting for them to stop. They were always super clingy and all over each other, it was really uncomfortable.

    EDIT: Whenever friends/family make me feel uncomfortable like that, I take out my phone/camera and pretend to film it.  When they ask me what I’m doing, I tell them I’m going to sell the video to skinemax (this usually gets them to stop)

    @FromA2B2013:  DH is less PDA-friendly than me.  I’m fine with kissing (lightly), hugging, hoding hands, leaning on each other, etc. and he usually is too — unless we’re around either of our parents.  Like we’re still in high school and could get in trouble… :/

    @FromA2B2013:  PDA doesn’t bother me. Whatever makes people happy. Obviously I’d be a bit disturbed if folks were literally having sex somewhere in open view, but not much else bothers me. FI and I are quite affectionate.

    We’re pretty tame in public. Hand holding, little kisses. In an empty grocery store isle, there might be a copped feel as a joke. But at home it’s different-ish. We live with friends who are also couples, so none of us really feel a right to be squeamish about PDA. It’s everyone’s home.
