So the other night I was out, having a perfectly pleasant night with friends, when I noticed a couple getting rather intimate in public just a few feet away. They were kissing and touching and, really, it looked like they were a few minutes away from dry humping right there in the restaurant.
We were all grown ups and so no one said anything. But I was dying to scream, “get a room” and I’m sure others were, too. Suffice it to say, I would NEVER behave like that. Again.
Now, just to be clear, I’m not an absolutist on this issue. I think that some forms of PDA are just fine. Handholding is OK (although sitting in a restaurant and holding hands at the table makes me uncomfortable). Kissing out on the street at the end of a date is fine. Just as long as it doesn’t get too handsy. That belongs inside. Kissing in a bar or restaurant can be acceptable as long as it’s quick. I don’t like to be a scene. Gosh, I sound like a prude all of a sudden. How the hell did that happen?
Those are my issues. And, to be honest, I actually like it when the guy I’m dating loathes all PDA. It makes it easier in some ways.
So what about you? Are you cool with smooching in public?
