I honestly hate PDAs that go further than hand holding or a very, very quick kiss on the cheek.  I was upfront with Fiance about this from the beginning, so we never really have PDAs.  So I guess in that regard, we aren’t an awkward couple.

Why is any of that awkward? I don’t get it… =/

I don’t really get the awkward reference, but it made me laugh! Darling Husband and I hold hands and he sometimes gives me a peck on the cheek in public, but other than that we’re pretty normal.

Wait so awkward means holding hands? I guess we are super awkward then 🙁

Yeah, I’ve not heard this, and dont’ really understand. We very rarely hold hands, because we both get sweaty palms, but I will hold his arm sometimes. We will also sometimes walk with our arms around each other, and he’ll kiss my forehead randomly.

I don’t see how this makes a couple “awkward”…seems like a jealousy thing to me

I agree, awkward doesn’t really seem like the right word here!

I’d never heard of Valentine’s Day being “awkward couple day.” We’re careful about PDA, but really, we’re married. I think it’s okay for us to hold hands or give each other a quick kiss in public.

That said, I don’t enjoy seeing other people make out in public, Valentine’s Day or not, so that isn’t something we’d ever do.

I think PDA past a quick peck/holding hands is reaaaally awkward and I’m married, so I don’t think it’s completely jealousy lol. Sometimes awkward couples are just awkward, and even worse is when they know it and do it anyway 😛

I would think “awkward” would be for people who aren’t comfortable being around each other

that being said, Fiance and I hold hands in public

The youngins use “awkward” to describe almost everything, it’s annoying.

green-eyed monster of unhappy singleness” made me think of bridget jones talking about “smug married.”

not everyone who is single is unhappy or jealous. just saying (and i’m not single, so don’t point fingers at me!).

maybe some people wonder why couples are overly affectionate in public (ie, beyond hand holding, infrequent smooch). what are you trying to prove by being all over each other? that’s my same feeling about facebook.

I only find it awkward if it is like teenage PDA. Holding hands, quick peck, a hug, I think that is all totally normal and wouldn’t blink an eye. Seeing couples with their tongues down each other’s throats, groping, makeout sessions– that’s awkward.
