A peck is about all I can handle, both personally and from other people. I even get a little squirmy if my husband has his arm around me for too long. I think that’s just a personal space issue though lol.

I think it’s weird that you paid so much attention to them. We don’t typically do a lot of PDA (hand holding, a kiss here and there, but not really anything else) but what you described wouldn’t bother me at all.

It is a few days after valentines, I’m sure many are still in cupids haze. Or simply in the honeymoon phase of a new relationship- which is so fun. Eh, I would give them a pass. We try to keep it light but depending on the occasion (or lack of sobriety) that changes a little

Ewwwwwww that is disgusting! Hahaha. Fiance and I rarely even hold hands. Every once in a while we will give a peck on the lips like walking into a building or something but nothing more.

I think quick kisses are fine. Making out in public, not so much.

I htink as long as they aren’t full on making out its not a big deal. And really, you’re worried about kids seeing people kiss (i assume from your family restaurant comment)? I think more kids should see happy relationships early on. With so much negativity in the world, complaining about people sitting on the same side of the booth and kissing a few times is seriously OTT.

You don’t know their story. What if he is in the military or was abroad for months working and they finally are spending some time together?

My boyfriend and I sit on the same side of the booth, hold hands, arms around each other occasionally, but we don’t kiss a bunch like that in public. Maybe a peck or two if at all


I love that my boyfriend is so cuddly with me and I would miss it if he weren’t. I feel sad thinking of couples who don’t hold hands/aren’t that affectionate. If we stop being affectionate like usual for whatever reason one of us will usually say something about it and fix it

As long as it’s not making out, pressing against each other levels, almost public sex with clothes on, Go nuts.

I also agree, it’s weird you paid this much attention to them, I always hold my FI’s hand in public, we hug regularly and he kisses me regularly and vice versa. 

I am absolutely not touchy feely

I hardly think kids seeing couples kissing is educational :S they can see happy relationships without seeing kissing — kissing doesn’t mean the relationship is necessarily happy anyway.

OP, from your post it sounds a bit much and I would be cringing! I wouldn’t kiss my husband on the lips in public. I think that kind of PDA is gross!

We are pretty much that level of affection. We always sit right next to each other and if we are together I would say we kiss on average of like 6 times an hour. We are both just really physically affectionate people. We are never like French kissing in public, but are definitely not against some quick pecks even in a public place. We kind of exist in our own little bubble and don’t pay much attention to everyone around us.

Seeing a couple doing that in a restaurant wouldn’t bother me one bit. It would probably make me smile

I don’t show PDA like that but I think kissing is totally fine and this seems like a huge overreaction.

hafh2016 :  I second that. I’m sure if they were full on making out with each other’s tongues down their mouths we would’ve heard so. A couple of kisses here and there doesn’t nearly sound as shameful as you’re insinuating.

Kacey23 :  Am I the only one that finds PDA cute? Ah, young love…my Fiance thinks it’s disgusting. Lol. The most we do in public is maybe 1 peck on the lips? FI’s hands are always sweaty, so no holding hands. Hahaha. No hugging, rubbing, necking…We don’t sit on the same side of the booth. But, he will wrap his arms around me, he does rest his hand on my leg or lower back, and he will do an ass grab every now and again! I tend to have tunnel vision so I don’t see / care about what other couples do. And I don’t really care about our lack of PDA either, because we are VERY affectionate as soon as we get home!! xoxo
