The caution to Public Display of Affection

    It doesn’t hurt to show some little affection to a dear one in public. This tells your partner they are appreciated and valued and how proud you are of them. But have you witnessed a couple who couldn’t keep their hands off each other? If you have, do you remember how uncomfortable you felt or how weird it was looking at them? For those who haven’t, it is quite gross and steals the joy of the moment.

    There are some factors to consider should one be thinking about showing a little PDA to make their significant other feel special. Remember a lot of people have strong opinions with this issue hence take care not to be embarrassed so please consider how your partner will feel, the environment you find yourself in, the age group of those around you and the type of event or gathering you happen to find yourselves since showing affection outside if not properly undertaken can be disastrous. For instance, you do not launch your PDA skills at a traditional event in Ghana. You will leave with a shattered reputation.

    Etiquette comes in play during a public display of affection. While it is alright to hold hands, hug briefly or share occasional affectionate glances, going overboard with these lead you precisely into the appropriate area. Beware that, there are limits to this that one needs to be conscious of always.

    Not adhering to the limits of public display of affection leads to it becoming inappropriate and an eyesore. Therefore it is not accepted from couples to publicly grope each other, initiate a make out session or constantly keep your hands running over your partner’s body. Engaging in these is equal to airing one’s dirty linen in public. What does one gain? Nothing, absolutely nothing.

    To the reader out there, this is not for your eyes and mind only. Make sure some other person out there knows about this too.

    I agree with this assertive observation. It is very uncomfortable watching couples go overboard when displaying public affection and I think couples should do that privately.

    I'm glad to have a supporter out there to help spread that couples shouldn't engage in PDA inappropriately. Thanks Chimsa

    This is a very sensitive matter. Personally I think different societies and communities look at it differently. Plus inappropriate is a very relative term.
