    Funnily enough, I couldn’t get enough PDA in my dating around days.  I smooched cute boys all over NYC.  But now, with my FH, I just don’t need or want to.  I have nothing to prove and no desire to flaunt my relationshippiness.  (Can we tell I had some self-esteem issues before?)  I am grossed out when I see other people ostentatiously PDA-ing.  Stay home and do that!  Of course light PDA is natural, we of course love and are attracted to our FHs…but come on.

    My FH and I are on the same page as far as PDA goes. We’re both snuggly, hand-holding people so that’s always nice. We definitely don’t get too comfortable in public, though. We don’t make-out or anything like that. But he’s always kissing me on the forehead if we’re ever waiting in line, or he’s holding my hand, opening doors, arm around the shoulder, smooches on the lips, etc. I love our sense of PDA :]

    We always hold hands–an occasional little kiss. No full on making out in public for us. Some things should be kept private Wink

    I’m ok with hand holding, hugging in line, occasional booty tap, but not with full on making out. I hate it when you go to the movies and hear slurp slurp slurp right next to you! Or when I take my nieces to Disneyland and the couple ahead of us in line are having a full on hump session!

    it depends on the situation though we usually just hold hands, light kissing, light caressing and maybe a playful pat on the bottom but nothing heavy. that is saved for private.

    anything more than that reminds me of those high school kids that don’t have anywhere else private to go. i was grossed out in high school watching them dry hump in line and i’m grossed out by it now too. ha!

    Light to moderate is fine by me in appropriate locations but I do not want to see anyone’s tongue or any sort of groping or grinding because just EW. Stop. I operate under the “if I wouldn’t do it in front of my parents, I wouldn’t do it in public” principle, which means appropriate kisses, hugs, hand-holding is all good. Other stuff is just not for public consumption.

    I second Ex Libris! I used to make-out with my first boyfriend anywhere I felt like it (which was all the time because it was our first relationship for each). With my husband, at this stage, we don’t do a lot of PDA. We’ll hold hands, light pecks, and I’ll pat his bum every once in a while, but that’s about it. I don’t really feel the need, I guess, to do any more than that.

    I don’t have anything against PDA as long as it’s appropriate. But when it’s not,  though, it really bothers me. Like last night on the train, I stood up and walked toward the door because my stop was next, and a couple of 16-looking-year-olds were like full-on making out up against the exit door. It was really uncomfortable. I never think there’s an absolute need to have a full make-out session in public. If you’re that randy, then yeah, get a room.

    But light kisses and hugs and such are fine with me.

    Fiance and I are pretty bad about PDA. He is less into it than me, but for some reason when I am feeling drawn to him, I could care less who is watching! It’s not about showing off, though I know it might come off that way. It doesn’t really bother me when I see other people doing it, unless its like full-on making out in a public place!

    We smooch and snuggle a little in public, but making out is where I draw the line. No one wants to see that.

    I really have no problem with PDA! as long as it’s not a step under sex in public! Light kisses in the grocery line or things like that is just fine. And I don’t really like to kiss while I’m at work or near the building in my uniform! lol 

    But when couples stick their tongues in each others throats or hands down pants/up shirts you know!??

    HAHAHA

    My sorority gave me “PDA” as a nickname because of the way my boyfriend (now FI) acted at the frat parties!

    I’m not really comfortable with PDA, SO is a little bit more than me.  We stick to hand holding or he’ll put his arm around me at the movies.  It also kinda grosses me out when other people are a little to heavy on the PDA (ie – making out, borderline sex in public).
