    Thankfully we are both on the same page. We are NOT into it. My ex was though and didn’t respect my PDA boundaries — it led to some fights, so I’m glad that my Fiance and I see eye to eye on this one!

    I wish Fiance was more affectionate in public, because it’s weird for me when he does not touch me all day/evening and then when we get home it’s like WHOMP he’s all over me.  It’s kind of overwhelming.

    I would choose other if that was an option.

    Me and the Darling Husband are on the same page.  We hold hands and a little kiss when either of us is leaving.  Other than that we don’t do anything else.

    I guess we are more into PDA in moderation and only if its appropriate for us.

    We both display our affection. We don’t get too crazy though. We almost always hold hands when we’re out, sometimes he puts his arm around me. If we’re sitting down in public his arm is always around me. We’ll kiss each other on the cheek or give each other light pecks.

    We don’t just make out in front of the world though!

    It depends on where we are…Fiance would never paw me when he visits me at work or in front of relatives, but there are other places where we are super affectionate.

    We are on the same page.  I wouldn’t say we “like” public affection, but we are confident/ comfortable with expressing ourselves if that comes to pass.  We try not to go overboard, but a kiss or something is fine, or a hug.

    I can barely get him to kiss me in public, but when we’re at home he’s always trying to get my clothes off lol! I wish he would be a teensy bit more affectionate as I think it makes me look like an asshole when I give a smooch face in public and he just ignores it. But I’ve never really given it actual thought until now so it doesn’t really bother me.

    We are both on the same page that some PDA in modertation is okay.  Some light touching here, a quick peck there – we’re not big PDA people.

    We’re both on the same page (: We hold hands, hug, and are comfortable kissing (in moderation) in public. We’re comfortable with PDA but we make sure to do it only when it’s appropriate.

    We definitely limit any PDA, and we’re both on the same page about it!  We see nothing wrong with a quick kiss on the lips or a hug goodbye… but we’re not the hold hands, long kiss in public kinda people.

    We’re that annoying couple in public- (I apologize should I ever cross your path in real life)

    but we know it and make fun of ourselves for it 🙂 We are very touchy, what can I say, and wouldnt have it any other way.

    We used to be on slightly different pages.

    He was totally anti any public affection (including hand holding or putting his arm around me or even a kiss at midnight at a new years party).

    Now he’s fine with hand holding, putting his arm around me, and giving me a quick kiss when we go our separate ways at the subway platform.

    That’s the perfect amount of PDA for me and for him too. Just enough that I know he cares but not anywhere near enough to make others uncomfortable.

    I can’t stand PDA. We hardly even hold hands in public. We don’t feel the need to broadcast our love for each other and we are definitely on the same page about it.
