Anyone as annoyed by public displays of affection as I am?

Are slippery things involved?

Yep...it depends...
to me there is a difference between affection and what looks more like public foreplay...
but I do like seeing people expressing attraction or affection-- holding hands, arm in arm...cuddling, reasonable kissing, etc...
the other day there was a couple walking their dogs in the park and they had their arms around each other with their hands in each others back pockets.. it was cute.

But theres also been times when Ive went down to the river and couples were on the sand beach on blankets and I wanted to tell them to go get a room...

its like anything else in life...theres that fine line ... but with all the loneliness and meaness in the world, I do like to see people happy.

I prefer not to see "pink" things unless I'm invited.

Hope that helps.

you know...I had this woman tell me and Jon once,  to stop acting married. Excuse me?? We were hugging. Another time Jon and I were waiting in line at a grocery store, and he kissed my forehead. The girl behind the counter said for us to not kiss at her counter. I just looked at her like well, I can't say here what I was thinking, or what I said rather loud when we walked off...but come on...what is wrong with people being affectionate with each other? I don't know what kind of PDA you are meaning here...but like Janet said, there is a line, and I don't agree with public groping and molesting each other. That to me is more than I want to see too. But just being affectionate with each other is nice. I like seeing couples who look like they are in love. It makes me smile.

Affection vs bedroom behavior? LOL at the pink comments, but have to agree, there are parts that should stay private.
However, I prefer both to rudeness, rage, verbal or real slapping.

It depends with me too.

Of course I'm a Scorpio, and Scorpios are referred to as the sexiest sign in the zodiac and the most sensually energetic, so maybe it's just me on how I feel about some types of affection. I love kissing in public for one thing, I haven't been kissed yet but I can only imagine how special a feeling it is to not be nervous or ashamed kissing the one you love in public and expressing to the world how much you love your special someone.

I also don't mind those reclining and kissing each other on the grass in the park or something like that either in some sort of foreplay, as long as clothes are kept on so as to not offend the more sensitive or younger types.

But I would never be ashamed to kiss my dream girl in public anywhere. It's innocent, tame love.



Sincerely,
Noah Eaton

“public displays of affection”

Is this a euphemism?

Otherwise:

I think she means "public display" in general. Any sort of romantic interaction, from kissing to holding to mild sensual activity.

makes me happy when I see two people deeply in love...and the older they are, the cuter it is....but public foreplay...NO!
Love to see people holding hands...kissing, arm in arm...that's love...

Once, I had just broken up with my boyfriend...and, was with a girlfriend at the shore...she nugged me and pointed to a couple kissing on the beach...I turned to her and said....sarcastically and comically....that really makes me sick!...hehehe...but she knew I was just kidding.

No, I enjoy affectionate couples...makes me very happy.

Kaoru,
This doesn't have anything to do with just delivering a baby, right? Okay it depends with me too. But pink is out! I like affection a lot though.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

I have no problem with hand holding, chaste kissing, arm in arm etc. I enjoy the love that seems to emmanate from this kind of affection.
What really bothers me is people who think they need to make a porn flick in something as innocuous as Mickey D's or Chucky Cheese.

“Kissing in public is a crime if the people around are not happy”

Justice ministry official Abdul Gani Abdullah

“Under the proposed draft, offenders caught kissing in the open could be jailed for up to 10 years and fined as much as 300 million rupiah ($33,000), reports the Jakarta Post.”
