Are you ok with PDA?

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?

Morning Bootleggers!!

Baby Girl is back in the US of A! She talked nonstop when we picked her up last night. She wanted to immediately take a bath because she said she was limited to 4 minute showers in Australia. She will probably wake up about 2 or 3 this afternoon. Or maybe a little before to see what she got for her birthday which is TODAY!

So happy to have my baby girl and road dawg back! :)

Oh okay so it’s MIA on bootleg? I guess I’m down (lol).

Leggs

Glad you liked it. :-)

Okay now, Disco…

Based on our previous dialogue, I take it you had thorough understanding. I did not imply that your comments were hurtful at all – especially not on a blog. I mean we’re all adults so honesty should be something we all can handle. Simply pointed out I noticed you possess a selfish outlook for someone with a child. But again, at least you’re aware of this. So if anyone would be hurt, it would’ve been your son. (ITL don’t trip…Lol).

Only hurt individuals come across as guarded and as you say -”abrasive” as you do. But it all reflects hurt (i.e pain or as someone stated “baggage”) from the individuals themselves. Afraid someone can see straight through you, hence all that armour. Come on now…

Cue the anthem:

“Bag lady you goin’ hurt your back Draggin’ all ‘em bags like that
I guess nobody ever told you…
All you must hold on to… Is you, is you, is you…”

I was thinking that’s not a good song for ITL to hear. She’s ready to punch!

disco

July 2nd, 2013

jira – that’s why I’m embracing the hurt comment today. I simply asked that you accept me as I am or even as I present myself to be. don’t go psychoanalyzing and assuming I’m hurt because of how you read my posts. perhaps you’re hurting which is why you detect hurt. ijs.

I will now continue to try to post hurt-free. lol.

disco ~ wasn’t me, but I do plan on buying it. Love Chrisette Michelle, but done have her latest. I remember when she first came on the scene I almost brow beat some of the guys here telling them to buy that CD for their SO. Said they would score some serious “brownie points.” I think “Truth” was the first to agree (lol)!

Okay, time to get squoozed!
