Once again, I found myself dumbfounded by a sight that I witnessed during one afternoon of innocent shopping with one of my best friends. As we were walking towards Starbucks for a pick-me-up, there they were — a young couple sitting on a couch in the middle of the mall lounge… completely all over each other.
Now, when I say they were “all over each other,” I don’t mean there was a future sex tape in the works for anyone who took out their iPhone that random afternoon to catch it. However, the two were always stealing more than innocent kisses with their legs wrapped around each other in broad daylight. This is not what I planned on seeing that fine afternoon.
P.D.A. (which is public displays of affection for those of you newcomers) is great and all, but where do we draw the line? Is one kiss in public awful? I say no, but it should be acknowledged by all of those involved that you are in public so please, for the sake of those around you, keep it tasteful and decent.
Don’t start making out in the middle of the mall or at a sporting event (yes, I’ve seen it happen there, too). We don’t want to see your affection for each other while we’re trying to enjoy shopping or eating some well-deserved fro-yo. But honestly, everyone out there has a different opinion about what they mind and don’t mind seeing in regards to P.D.A.
So, what’s your opinion? How much is TOO much?
