Do people kissing, showing affection for each other in public really annoy you ? Surely in these times showing alittle love and affection is not the crime of crimes, yet some people, both male and female seem to think some activities should be kept private. I personnally really dont care if two people kiss in public at all, why should I. There is too much hate and envy in this world to care about 2 people in love showing their feelings for each other. Lthough I do not like peolple who make a point in kissing infront of you just to try and get a reaction . What's the point. SO how do myLotters feel about this topic. xxx

Kissing in public is really horrible in our country.No one does this in public here. Kissing is something personal and really enjoyable in between couples which has to be enjoyed in a room taking the real charm of that. It is also not advisable to kiss in front of children,because they are very sensitive to all these actions. This is my personal opinion.

I fully understan that in some countries it is certainly not the done thing. And I fully respect that. Each individual country has it's own cultures and beliefs which should be respected. Have a super day. Thabks for your honest reply.

kissing in the public is becoming popular in my country, personally I dont't mind.But if they kiss a long time then I think they are a little hate. so towards me I wil never do this becase i must take care of others' reaction

Yes, I think that is rude. Some people are offended by such acts. There are people who are very conservative, who grew up in very conservative environment and to be flaunting your kind of morality in public is unacceptable. That is a display of lack of education. Things like that should be done in private and not like you're promoting live p*rnography. Remember, there are also minors everywhere.

I dont agree that simply kissing in public is a sign of lacking in education I feel it is more like a sign of love and affection. A simple kiss could never be seen as promoting anything like p-ography as you say. Yes some people can be offended by such acts of love so it is up to the couples to respect other peoples feelings and beliefs I agree totally. And yes as for children well this is abit tricky , as it should be good for children to experience love and affection but it is a VERY VERY fine line. Thanks for your input into this subject. Have a fun packed day.

As long as they stay within certain boundaries and don't go further than kissing, I am happy to see them because they are happy and we don't see enough happy people nowadays. There is nothing nicer than seeing a fmily out for the day and mom and dad are affectionate. So many children come from broken homes that it is becoming a rare scene. We were all young once and I'm sure we can remember that we were happy with our love one and that we kissed them too. Of course if we are visiting a country where this is not allowed thenwe should respect their ways and not be seen doing it. They don't bother me and they bring back happy memories

I know what you mean by 'staying within certain boundaries' . I kiss and a peck on the cheeek or lips and a hug is hardly going to corrupt the world or it's onlookers. Yes in some countries this is not right and I fully respect that, each to their own, etc. Life is for living, if there was no love, life would not continue. Treat people they way you would like to be treated. :)

Ahhh. I am guilt of this. I like showing my affection to my boyfriend in Public. Hehehe. And of course, if I do it, then I don't mind other people doing it. I mean as long as it's not that vulgar and it's not "get a room" worthy then I'm okay with it.

if its a peek is ok, now if they get really into it then no.. wrong place and wrong time..
@HADDOWZ (1481)

Yeah your right sometimes if it showing affection does go to far then yes it you could say wrong place , wrong time. But still nothing wrong with a quick peck on the cheek for your loved one, in my opinion. Thanks for your response to this hot discussion.

At first it annoys me, then afterwards I realize that it it a funny incident. Reminds me that I saw this teenage couple at the grocery and the guy was stealing a kiss from the girl because she pushed him when she saw that I was there. I was looking for sugar-free cookies at the international foods section of the supermarket and that aisle usually has less shoppers because they are quite expensive.
@HADDOWZ (1481)

Just goes to show that signs of affection can crop up virtually anywhere. In the international food section aisle is certainly somewhere different. Can any myLotters beat this for unusual places to find love and affection. Have a great shopping day. :)

There seems to be little enough affection in this world these day so a couple kissing in public doesn't really bother me at all. I don't understand why a display of affection can cause offence.
@HADDOWZ (1481)

You are most certainly right about there not being enough love and affection in this world, and it only seems to be gettin worse. If more people showed alittle love towards their partners in public I believ the world would be a happier place. Of course in some countries this is not acceptable because of religious beliefs which I fully understand and certainly dont have any problem at all with this. Maybe it would be a good idea for myLotters who respond to this topic to say whether it is acceptable in there country or not. Of course you really dont have to say either way if you feel this is being too personal. Happy typing all.

it doesn't bother me that much but maybe for a single nano-second, hahaha. it really depends on how they "look" when kissing. if they're slobbering each other complete with sounds and all that is a bit distracting. but peck in the lips or cheek i guess is ok?
@HADDOWZ (1481)
15 Apr 10
I whole heartedly agree, even I would be annoyed if a couple started 'Slobbering' and 'Slurping' infront of me. I think it would be alot more than just alittle distracting. Have a peaceful day :)

I think it's fine if they are just holding hands and kissing each other on the cheek but if they are tongue kissing and grabbing each other's inappropriate parts, I think that's not ok. I don't think little kids should be seeing this in public because they are too young and we don't want them to copy them and act like that at such a young age. Couples that show love and affection in public need to know when to draw the line and not go too far. They need to respect other people who do not like seeing public display of affection in public.

I agree that couples do have a responsibility not to go too far when in public. This is even moe important when infront of young people.

I always love to see people kissing with all hormones around them. It is fun and beautiful to show their love :)

Yes... it annoys me. I find it... gross to see. Why kiss when you're in public? Can't they just go somewhere private. It's really gross. In my opinion that is...

But surely it is just two people showing alittle love for each other. Love makes the world go round not money.

Pretty much, yeah, but I do it anyways as well. I tend not to look and not care as much as I did before but I guess i was immature and jealous back then in my teen years when I was single. I am impartial about this generally, but when I am in a position where I am forced to look (like sitting on the same table) it's really annoying, especially if it's just you.
@HADDOWZ (1481)

I know what you mean. If you are in company and you are the only single person it can get abit annoying, and embarrising. Even when you have done nothing wrong.

I personally see nothing wrong with a couple kissing in public. I just dont like when I go out in public and a couple is going a little bit further then need be in public and my children see it! That's discusting and bothers me. That kind of thing should be kept for the bedroom. Every no and then my husband and myself are quilty of a little kiss in public as well. Nothing wrong with two people in love.
@HADDOWZ (1481)

Very true, nothing at all wrong with 2 people showig affection for each other. And yes somethings should be kept private, away from young eyes viewing. Have an easy day. :)

It's depend on the culture of the country, in my country it looks so taboo. Actually I also not agree to have a kiss in the public area. people may say kissing each other is one of the many ways to show their love, but who cares with their love. The true kiss and true love just can proven when they already married or at least has been engaged.
@HADDOWZ (1481)

Everyones culture has to be respected, I understand that. But is showing affection or love for another person so wrong ? Have a good day.

Hi Haddowz, It doesn't bother me a bit. I would much rather see two people show love and affection for each other than the arguing and drama that we see all too much of. As long as they aren't tearing each others clothes off I can't imagine why anyone would be offended by it. I've actually never had anyone kiss in front of me just to get a reaction. If they did then they were greatly disappointed because I would not have reacted. Why would someone do that?
@HADDOWZ (1481)
14 Apr 10
Your right, why would people kiss infront of other people to try and get a reaction, but, sadly it does happen. Sad as it is some people, couples, etc do this just to try and show they are better than you. Thankfully it really dont work for me. Whoopee you just kissed in public, SO, the words 'Attention Seekers' spring to mind, WHO CARES. Have a slick smooth day.

I never do that but it doesn't matter if I see the couples kissing in public. Anyhow, in the society where I'm living, this act is regular and common. So getting annoyed is a waste for me. If you don't like it, you have the right to turn around or close your eyes when you see it.

Depends on the type of kiss... If it s ostentative, exagerated than i just look away. If you re talking regular kiss with your girlfriend/wife, then i don t mind seeing it in public, and i don t mind doing it either. Not that i do it to often but if i feel like kissing my wife and we re in a public place i won t hold back from this...

I think that when people kiss lightly and hold hands is okay. Whe it gets to the point where they are looking like a the start of a love scene that is where it gets over bearing.

I also have no problem with that till the moment i see different tongues around me in the whole restaurant let's say.A little kiss or touch is not the problem but do they go out of their houses if they only want to show each other their affectionate.There are better ways for doing it not in front of everybody.

Its ok to me seeing two people having PDA especially when inside the mall if that two person are good looking hahaha but I hate those old man kissing a young girl in public. They're just annoying and it hurts my eyes. lol..Holding hands is somehow acceptable.

it depends on where and how they kiss. and that's true! that there are other things to envy or care about rather than commenting or teasing two people who are in love with each other..you know, who cares! for as long as you, you're not doing it because you prefer to be in private, then there's nothing much to talk about other people as well.
