PDA when hanging with friends....?

Like Tree33Likes

Depends a bit on the environment. Definitely not dry humping, but a bit of making out, as long as not too hoochy, in a busier environment, like a nightclub or concert, is okay as far as I am concerned. People are often hooking up for the first time in those situations, and if it were me, I would not want to settle for a peck or holding hands.

But not if they are accompanied by just one or two other people. Either they should be alone, or the people they are with form a group large enough that the two can just go to a separate corner.

P.S. I used to live with my sister. When she and her (now) husband first started dating...awkard, yes. But what was I to do? Tell her to not make out with her bf in her own home? And they are loud kissers. I just got over it, but it's nice that we're all past that phase.

I've been mushy with current dude(can't help it he's so loveable like a cuter than cute puppy). When we are at games we are usually huggy and sorta kissy(not tongue). I'm sure people near me might think it's annoying but I don't care. I won't do that if I'm with friends(just one or two). If it's a group that doesnt need my attention all the time that's different.
I'm not into PDA. I don't do much of it. An occasional bit of affection is all.

However when the man and I started dating we were the couple all over eachother at the club. I once heard someone refer to us as 'the makeout couple'. I'd like to say I felt bad, but I didn't. It was hot.

yea i forgot to add, I generally could not give any effs of a thousands suns if I have no idea who you are. Do what you want, unless it was like that concert incident and hilarious, then I'm going to laugh at you. Or at work which I am already suffering and then I have to watch you make out all over the place because you're on a romantic date, and my job is a hot spot for secret sex.

EFFING CHILDREN GO HERE, YOU FREAKS.


eta: but again I have no idea who you are so I dc.


but if I'm here to hang out with you and then you make out with your boo. I've put you on a list. The list called Don't effing hang out with this fool until you know who she bringing.

Like my one friend. She would invite me to stuff, and then not tell me her bf was gonna be there. and He would be all over and hse would be trying to have a conversation and he would be kissing her while she was talking to me. WHA;LTASHLH?!?? So from then on when she would invite me I would casually be like who's all going? But then I found out, she'd just be like me. And then later he would show up when he got done doing stuff and it was that all over again. so now anytime she texts me, I don't really respond back. Because I ain't got time for that.

LIKE WHAT DO YOU NEED ME FOR??? Your boyfriend sucking on your neck should be enough entertainment for you

Until that time comes, though, you'll probably go out together on dates and you'll want the first kisses to be passionate.

As long as it's PG-13 and I'm not made to feel as though I'm the third wheel, it doesn't bother me.
I hate that!

That's that shhh I don't like!!!


It's so awkward, like you're all over each other and then trying ot talk to me? NO don't talk to me when your boo thang is making out with your neck uggggh



I'm not big on pda either.

Holding hands okay, arm around each other okay, kissing like once twice small pecks okay, but constantly groping and stuff. UGH.

It's so weird.


Get a life.

For me the people don’t even have to be in a group with me they could be strangers sitting beside me at the movies or people I pass in the park, I think there is a time and a place for certain levels of affection. I saw these people in a public park this summer, the woman was sitting on the guys lap straddling him and they were going at it like they were trying to win an award. Some people don’t even care if there are children around!! I also have friends that are like that, I went to the movies with them and they were constantly making out beside us...I like kissing my husband too but common you are missing the entire movie why didn't you stay home!

One thing I can say is that if I was invited to hang out with a friend or if I invited my friend to hangout, I never brought my s/o to tag along and same for him. We both understand that we each need that girl time or guy time with our friends I mean we live together so we're not gonna die if we're not around each other for a while lol.

I haaaate this. I actively try my best to avoid hanging out with a friend if she is bringing her boyfriend along. I just never enjoy myself. Even if they are not being overly touchy feely. For example going to a concert with a friend and her boyfriend, they just kind of cuddle up with each other and I am awkwardly standing to the side...here is a funny video I found a while ago and saved because it's exactly what hanging out with a couple feels like: couples who make out around you - YouTube

100% depends on the situation. In my wonder years, when I had a bo & hung out with my friends, everyone would be making out with their boyfriends/girlfriends. No one looked up long enough to care.

Now that I am single, and in situations where I am spending time with friend and their spouses, no one is making out anymore. Sad but true. Lol.

When I do spend time with my friends who are also single/dating, it depends on the situation. If they just started dating the person, I am less likely to be bothered by it. They will calm down or call it quits at some point. I spend the most time with my best friend, who is gay. He was so (generally) worried about PDA, for so many years, that I find adorable when he is in a relationship and all over someone in front of me. He will apologize and I'm like, whatever! I'm loving it for you.

When it comes to myself... It just depends. I have restrained, and I have had to snap back to reality, remember I am in public, and check to make sure my clothes are still on. Not really, but might as well.

Some men are such magnificent kissers that they make you forget your manners.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

Obviously nightclubs, the back alleys behind bars and such have different rules.

To Trenell, MizKerri and geeky:
I pray none of you ever has to live in a communist state.

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.
I'm in the camp of believing a little hand-holding, a light squeeze or hug, maybe a small kiss are all ok in the company of other friends.

Full-on making out? Gross.
When my brother and sister-in-law come over they are all over each other on my couch or in my bed. The only way I can really get away from it is by leaving the room.
I'm not terribly physically affectionate either but I don't mind mild PDA in a group. What I'm talking about is holding hands, hugs or kisses that are quick, like a peck on the lips not tongue wrangling.

Anything else it's get a room.

The SO isn't affectionate in public. He's the type that gets embarrassed by pretty much anything. If we're talking and I use a 4-letter word (which is usually quietly so kids won't hear) he will get all kinds of stupid about it like I yelled it at the top of my lungs.
