Are you anti-PDA?

Have you ever been out in public and noticed a really obnoxious couple who are taking “public displays of affection” too far? A lot of people don’t mind seeing a couple happy and in love. It’s the couples who are in lust, that annoy everyone!

Most days, when I am not all “down will love” I can appreciate seeing two people happy to be with one another. I just think there is a certain line you shouldn’t cross. At some point, you really should go get a room.

Oddly enough, I don’t require a lot of PDA from men I date but I don’t like it when they are completely anti-PDA. Why would you not want to publicly show me affection? Are you afraid of being secretly filmed by the show Cheaters? Then I get all paranoid and start acting irrationally with over the top PDA to prove a point (I know, I have issues).

What is your stance on PDA? Are you for or against it? Have you ever dated someone who was not affectionate enough or was into PDA too much?

Well, slide a drink this way, cause I need one! Lord ha’ mercy. These trifling women down here!

Mrs. SC~ I feel you on the naiviete. I went through that with the 1st husband. Never again though.

WD~ I am not trying to give him flak, I just want him to squash the situation. Everyday, I have men who try to holler, but I never let anything get to the point where it would even need to be brought to the hubs attention. Damn sure ain’t no calling/texting going on. We have male paralegals and males who work at the courts (Even clients for that matter) who have my number, but this would never fly on my end. That’s all I’m saying.

Fraud alert….

He’s trying to manage the situation openly.

We’ve noticed that and applaud him for his honesty.

If anything at this rate moving forward dude won’t share anything with her. If he gets this much flak by being open and honest what’s the point.

First off, I’m not sure if Comon’s already called her hubby back with an answer to the question…and we don’t know how that convo went. All we’re saying is that he needs to nip it in the bud that’s all. I didn’t read any flack given…just for him to nicely but firmly tell ol girl to back off a little bit that’s all.

On Topic – “Are you anti-PDA?”

Humm, it depends. If it is a new woman and she is “Phat” (Pretty, Hot & Tempting) I will show a little PDA just to measure her interest. If she reciprocates I will pursue her lust, passion and sexual desires.

Know if she is not a new woman and she is trying to “mark her turf” with PDA I will let her know she has nothing to fear and there is no need to worry about other women when I am in her presence. I try to have the best of both worlds.

Mrs SC – See, that’s how that sh it starts…the man takes advantage of the chick using him for a listening ear. lol In my situation, the chick was actually engaged to be married so he used that as the, “Man she isn’t interested in me” bs…but yet she was calling him all the time to talk about stuff. Of course he said she would call to ask about work or talk about stuff about her fiance. But my dayum gut was screaming “TRI FLING H0″…and I saw her when my current beau went to Sweet Georgia Juke Joint. She gave me a hug and was like oooh I see you’re not with exman. blah blah blah…just shooting the sh it. Maybe about a month or so later, the exman had let the cat out of the bag.

“Since Bocce Ball was so fun, how about we try it in a park?”

Leggs — I thought we all agreed PDA was uncouth. And please don’t call my ball “Bocce.”

Silence is golden, but duct tape is silver. And if he starts keeping his mouth shut about what’s going on, he will not live to play another day. IJS…

I went to put on a pair of my jeans just yesterday morning and I could not get them over my thighs. :lol:

Leggs – They also have Bocce Ball at this bar called Ornsby’s. I been there only once though. They also have other games like Darts, billiards etc. But the park idea may be better to accommodate more ppl
