I LOVE kissing my husband, looking into his eyes and telling him I love him. We kiss quite a bit. (Never a make out session) But pecks. If anyone has an issue with us then oh well LOL

I don’t really have a problem with PDA. I’ll admit, seeing teenagers engaged in teenager PDA can kinda get me because they can sometimes really cross a line- I’ve seen tongues, groping, been in the movies where the teens behind me had lifted the armrests and were laying across multiple seats, him on top of her, really making out. That’s obviously over the line, but in general, it makes me happy to see adult couples in love. Darling Husband and I always point out older couples or couples with older kids engaging in PDA because we think it’s really sweet. We’re pretty affectionate ourselves, but always respectful.

We are not huge on PDA ourselves, maybe occasional hand out or peck but thats really it. But it wouldnt bother me if another couple (that I didnt know) was affectionate. As long as it wasnt obnoxiously loud. if they are doing their thing in the booth, I really wouldnt pay much attention.

Fiance and I will often sit on the same side of the booth. It’s just nicer that way, we can hear each other better. We will hold hands and give the occasional peck in public but nothing more than that. We have one couple friend we hang out with sometimes and they are constantly touching each other…like every moment they have to be stroking each others arms or touching in some way and I find it kinda squeamish. But whatevz, doesnt actually affect me so would never say anything.

We kiss as much as we feel like it and hold hands that’s our limit.

What you described is a little much for me but I doubt I would’ve noticed it. Darling Husband & I always hold hands in public, sit on the same side of a booth, have arms around waist, and will give peck kisses. I don’t think of any of this as over the top and think we show a normal amount of pda. No making out, but you definitely know we are a couple.

This might be the kind of thing that depends on your cultural/family background and how you were raised. My parents never held hands or even hugged in front of me and my brother, let alone kissed. The situation you described would make me squirmish or make me raise an eyebrow, but that’s just me. Overall, I like having a little bit of PDA, but my SO hates it. He feels super awkward doing anything if we are with friends or family (family is a definite no-no). With random people on the street he’s also squirmish but not as much. We will still hold hands or do pecks walking on the street if we don’t know anyone around us, but not if we have family or close friends with us. Sometimes, this gets annoying, but he’s also changed. The first time he dropped me to the airport with our friend, he was super awkward and barely hugged me goodbye. This time, our friend jokingly went back in the car and went ‘oye, at least kiss her!” so we kissed haha and it was still a little awkward for him but he’s getting there slowly 🙂
