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?

Jira ~ Seven is the spitting image of his father. Looking forward to whatever quirks he may have having Badu and Benjamin as his parents. I look at Zoe Kravitz and understand so much (lol).

Ex ~ Stevie buying that BMW was all a ploy. Mimi was smart enough to ask if she accepted it there would be no strings attached, but too got dang dumb to know he was lying. That entire exchange was comical and dumb as hell. Mimi is the biggest fool on that show. She’s bucking this season like she has some sense, but it’s all show because she is indeed “damaged!”

I had to look up Seven since I’ve never seen him but he definitely looks like Andre. When it comes to celebrity kids and parents, I think Will’s kids look more like him than any other’s I’ve seen.

Anybody watching the new show “Whodoneit?” It’s basically like “Clue” where you have to solve the murder before the hour ends, then another guest is murdered. Guests at the mansion have to tell how they think the murder occurred in the hopes of staying in the mansion. Prize is $100,000 to the winner. There’s a crime detective on the show and a retired detective who are lousy at the game…that’s funny! I have no doubt they will be murdered just to save face on their poor skills.

“they’re from the Wesley Snipes tax school..etc ”

I know Chris Tucker was desperately trying to keep it comical, but if I were to hear he mentioned anything about Lauryn Hill?…that would have been totally inappropriate, in my opinion of course. Still looking forward to a “comeback” of sorts. She may be on something else, but she’s still talented. Her daughter Selah looks just like her too. I thinks she does a little modeling.

I watched The Newlywed Game for the 2nd time the other day with Sheri Sheppard. It has none of the charm and comedy the original show had.

LMBO. Was hoping you changed your mind and carried on with the commentary anyway. LOL

“Even JayZ is seen smiling more these days”

You have to admit – Smiling or not, JayZ still looks like his face belongs on the front & back of a cigarette carton. A pack of Happy Camels.

Hurt & Honesty just two horns on the same bull. Sometimes we can’t have one without the other. Like my grandmother says: The truth is light, even if it’s ugly.

By all means, embrace who and “where” you are. I told you, I’m through with the sober discussion. Besides, I ran out of “drank money” for ITL to keep herself occupied with. LOL j/k
