one day i was walking down the street with my uncle. on the way there was a park. uncle, being a newcomer to the place ( it's delhi where i stay, he came here for some days ) told me that he want to visit the park. both of us went inside the park and sat on the lawn. when i turned back i saw a couple of around 30 years of age were sitting just beside us. uncle also saw them. just after few minutes they began to smooch each other like anyhting. the boyfriend/husband did some other stuffs right in front of us which i can't mention here. i got very embarrassed and walk out of the park immediately with my uncle. i couldn't say anything to him. So, people who are in love or whatever, for them is it okay to show PDA ( Public Display of Affection ). what do u say?

everything is relative. we can't simply judge people for what they do. i'll go for their reason on why they do it. after knowing that, then i'll discern whether or not it is justifiable or not.

it's okay to kiss in public like a smack on the lips but not to the point of french kissing because instead of the two people who's kissing may feel embarassed it's the people around who can see them will be the one who will feel embarassed. when in was 15 or 16 years old i saw to couple french kissing in the elevator and i was the one who turned around so not for them to see me staring at them! i think there should be a limit on how and where couple should display their affection for each other!

i dont think PDA is accepted in our country we feel ashamed if we see such things either along with our parents or with our children i no there is constrain of private space for couples but nething beyond holding hands is a complete no no

depends on the time and place and how far they go with it. i kiss and hold hands with my hubby but it depends on where were at how far it gets

well, i still think that there should be limitations. however, the description of limitations of course will be depending on each person, right?but i think that the couple that you saw doesn't have any limitation or any kind. i mean my bf and i kiss in public but it's just a smack kiss. it's because we are aware of the people around us. and we know that we might offend somebody if we're gonna go overboard.

Well, within reason. I think holding hands and kissing is okay, but not groping each other or french kissing. That's kind of gross. I don't want to see it. If it gets to that point I think it's time to get a room!
