That’s my limit too (Mr. Bee’s list).  PDA is vomitous in all forms.  We bust out the PDA sometimes when we’re drunk… REAL drunk. I’m not sure I’m even keen on the "I love you".

As long as no one can hear what you’re saying I suppose I’d say "I love you".  Actually the only time I say "I love you" in public is when I make Mr. Peng do something laborious, like take my jacket to the car, or drop me off in front of a restaurant so he can park the car.  Then I would say, "Love you smoodles" but only really sickly sweet to get a laugh out of whoever we were with.  Plus, Mr. Peng hates the weird nicknames I have, so it’s not even PDA at that point… it’s just kind of mean.

I am mean.

In general that list pretty much describes my limits too.  Darling Husband is a little more handsy than me, and likes to hold hands most of the time – almost always when walking, often when sitting in a restaurant.  And if we’re at a party, he’s generally got an arm around me, or a hand on my leg (if we’re sitting).  In addition to the kiss on the cheek, we will to a peck on the mouth.  The only time we’ve really done the full-body-hug full-on-kiss in public is what we like to call The Airport Thing.  When we’ve been apart for a week or more, things get a little different!

I’m okay with a quick kiss (cheek or lips), hugs, holding hands, quietly saying I love you, and sitting/walking with arms around the sholder/waist (as long as we aren’t in a crowd.)  Thats as much PDA as I can handle, the only exception is saying goodbye when he has to go out of town and I give him (what he calls) a goodbye kiss.

No PDA here.  I always think of same-sex couples, and the unspoken limits on their outward expressions of their love.  PDA could mean bodily harm for them.  I think it’s unfair for me to show any more affection than they could.

That being said, I am always so thrilled when I see a same sex couple holding hands or stealing a quick kiss in public.

Every so often we’ll kiss on the lips in public, but always just a little peck. We hold hands or walk arm-in-arm if we’re out at night together, and we say "I love you" several times a day, sometimes in public I guess, but usually when it’s more private (ie, not sitting somewhere with our friends professing our love for one another!).

My list is pretty much like Mr. Bee’s…at most a quick peck, but no one likes to see all that PDA, it’s just sickening and little kids walking by never need to see anyone full on making out…nasty!

My fiance and I definitely do quick kisses more often than most couples, but I think we still try to keep in mind how many people are around. We’ve been doing a distance relationship for over a year, though, so I’m curious if we’ll do that less when we’re around each other more.

  • Holding hands
  • Hugs (once in a while)
  • Quick kiss

But there isnt any makeout sessions. I hate that. Plus, when we hold hands… it doesnt last very long and the kisses are rare…

I dont like PDA either… just in front of family and friends! My rule, who ever was at my wedding has to bear with the whole lovey-dovey thing. haha

hehe… I guess we’re a pretty affectionate couple! We’ll hold hands, hug, kiss (peck), and say I love you (though that’s usually more private like a whisper in the ear or out to dinner with just the two of us). I draw the line at making out in public — that’s just really awkward to me.

I wouldn’t say that my Fiance and I are over the top, but we are definitely fans of PDA!!  We say "I love you" all the time, we love holding hands.  He’ll put his arm around me if I’m cold, we’ll give a kiss in the right moment.  It never goes beyond that, but I can’t imagine being embarassed to say "I love you" in public!
