I hate seeing people making out in public all the time, it is okay in moderation, but I see a lot of it. People I work with even make out behind the counter at work. My boyfriend is always up in my face trying to kiss me constantly all day even in front of customers when I am at work. Do you hate PDAs? What should I do to get my boyfriend to chill out a little bit without hurting his feelings?

I believe that there are things that should be kept and/or done in private, so I also don't agree with public display of affection. I don't know why some people can't keep their hands to themselves. Maybe they weren't taught the meaning of the word, "decency", or they are just exhibitionists. I notice that a lot of them derive pleasure being under the watchful eyes of others. My advise for you is to explain your discomfort to your boyfriend. If he truly cares about you, he would understand your state and will oblige to/respect your request.

There was this couple at my old work place (we were cashiers) who would always be kissing and giggling to each other - during work, during lunch, during cleanup, always. It annoyed the heck out of us because really, we don't want to see it and I doubt customers want to see their cashiers getting *ahem* busy with each other. My boyfriend used to be very touchy and affectionate in public with me when we first started dating, but I wasn't very comfortable with it in public. I don't mind holding hands, a hug, or a quick peck, but when you see couples clinging to each other for dear life or coming close to obscenely groping each other - it's time to stop.

My bf is very affectionate too. Most of the time he will hold my hand, hug me and kiss me but of course not during work. I think there should be limitations on PDA especially at the workplace. I don't mind doing PDA because I felt like my bf is too proud of me to be his gf so he tries to show it to everybody. Don't you feel the same way? Smacks, hugs and holding hands on public are fine but french kissing...hell no! I'll go get a room then, lol.

I see a lot of this today. I see most of it with teenagers and college kids. The guys love to show how in control they are of their girlfriends. If they have a good looking girlfriend it also says, "Look what I have! You can be sure if I am doing this in front of you, I am doing a lot more behind closed doors." The women who allow them and actually like it, are immature, insecure and think the men are showing how much they are "in love" with them. Poppycock. This is our culture. It is fast spreading to other cultures. No matter how much they say they hate the USA, they try to copy us. My husband is from another culture and to hold hands in public with a woman you are not married to is very low class. A woman of high standards would not even allow a man to kiss her before marriage. She would slap his face. Instead of constantly pushing him off of you which may mean to him that you are just not in the mood right now, sit down with him. Directly tell him that you don't like it. You like him, but not public displays of affection. If he says are, "what? Are you ashamed of me?" Tell him no. I just think that affection is reserved for at home.

pda's are fine but there is a time and a place for even those. tell him that at work you can 't be seen kissing him because it would be unprofessional and you have to be professional at work. tell him that you will be taking a break in say 20 minutes and you would like him to come back so the 2 of you can go for a walk. let him show his affection in public once in awhile. it is a good thing it lets other woman know that he's taken when his mouth doesn't say it with words.
