Public Display of Affection.

I have seen couples are doing this lately, regardless of gender. During the wake of my Uncle, we saw two couples having their sweetest moment. They are smooching and hugging, and they are both of the same genders. I don't know which is the tomboy. My Aunt was furious, so she went to them and ask for respect. Then they vanished somewhere. During the Kadayawan festival, I and the boyfriend saw couples who are doing something in the dark. And I was like, what's happening to the world. And they look very young. Me and the boyfriend, for past 7 years. We don't usually do what couples are doing like, we are decent enough to show our affection in public. Yes, we do love each other but we respect each other more. We don't hold hands when we go out, we don't kiss in the movie house. We just act normal and like best friends. But if we are alone, we cuddle sometimes. How about you?

@JustBhem I honestly think all hand holding and kissing is disgusting which is why. I do not date and never even been on one! Makes me have nausea looking at it!

maybe those 2 odd couples, both females, just gate-crushed in your uncle's wake so they can have the PDA. i think it is not only here in our country; it is even worse in China where one man used his fi_ _er to his girl; and last night, i saw a man holding the woman's front, while on a train. and i thought China is a conservative country.

I think I've seen that article on Facebook. People these days are full of an attention seeker.

Yes, like most of the teens here in our place is like that. I mean, I think it's the best way for adults but not for teens.

@TiarasOceanView The boyfriend is not that kind of a sweet guy. If he is but he doesn't want to show it in public.

We aren't PDA type either. I'll cling his arm sometimes or once in awhile hold hands but not quite too often. I don't believe in making out in public :)

@JustBhem Same here. I don't feel comfortable doing anything more especially full on making out.

No holding hands? Then I'll say 'see you there'. Much better to walk alone. ;)

Nope. Since I got sick I have dry hands, he has the softest hand and it makes me insecure. That is why no holding hands, but I cling to his arms most of the time.

Some people really don't care who is watching. I think it is pretty disrespectiful too.

Yes, I agree. Like they don't care if they are doing a scandalous thing.

I'm a bit against PDA too, it's quite rare I start kissing my boyfriend in public. I don't know why, but he's fine with that and searches for physical contact most of the time. Holding hands is okay though, you do that with children, so why not doing so with grown up people?

Yes, holding hands is okay to me as well. But for teens, I don't think so.

Personally, I don't care for too much of a public display.
