What is your opinion on Public Displays of Affection (PDA)? File this under relationship perks: Hand-holding, kissing in public, body part grabbing at a live concert. A lot of people believe that a highlight of being coupled up is letting everyone else know! Are you cool with someone being touchy feely on a date? Are you bothered when other people get lovey dovey around you?
One of our readers is dating a woman who has complained that he tends to ignore her cues for affection and public displays of affection. It is something he has heard women complain about in the past. He has a bad habit of being distant and standoffish whenever he is out on a date. While he will do all the polite things gentleman do, showing affection is “not his thing” and it seems to be a problem.
I told him that some women like to know that sex is not the only motivation for a man touching her. Women dig intimacy, which is not necessarily sex-related. How important is PDA in your relationships? Is it something you could live without if your partner was not into it?
