Give me tender touch ...in public Message Board

    "Love me thru the night-
    squeeze me so tight,
    Love me tonight" D.k.

    But does daylight and being in public extinguish displays of the amorous flame (PDA)? I'm not speaking of tongue sucking, lip nippin, groin grinding exhibitions, but kisses, hand holding, hugs....I was suprised to find some men point out in their profiles that they like public display's of affection as if it were an issue. I guess some people are uncomfortable with it...what think you?

    Rob,

    My parents are two extremes. My dad is overly affectionate (if one can be), and my mother stiffens up like a board when we hug her.

    I like PDA's! I wouldn't do anything to make other people feel uncomfortable, but I think that being caught up in the moment is part of love. It extends beyond the inner confines of one's life and spills over into the lives of others. Those who love you will certainly understand ... at least in our day. I can see from my own parents' opposing perspectives how things may have been considered quite differently some years ago.

    What's a kiss but the physical touching of two souls for a moment? What better way to express the longing, loving, or just happiness within?

    Words are wonderful things, but actions ... especially those quietly intimate (yet sometimes PUBLIC) moments ... certainly speak louder.

    Gem,

    LMAO "my mother stiffens up like a board when we hug her. "

    Nothing wrong with PDA, it just shows other people how comfortable you are in your skin and sharing your love for the other person is genuine at the moment.

    I think it all depends on the individual. Personally, I like holding hands, kissing in public, etc... Now "doing it" on a blanket in the middle of the public park, that would be another story entirely.

    LOL, now my father on the other hand is very anti-PDA... We used to spend a week in October in the western NC mtns, at a resort that Dad had actually been to with his father decades and decades ago. Leaves were normally awesome, and it was Dad's Bday then. It was an old Civil War generals "summer home". It was pretty cool. Meals were inclusive and there were only 3 phones and 3 public tvs on the property. The rule for dinner was coat and tie for the men.

    One year my brother brought his GF with him. After dinner one night, my brother leaned over and kissed her. Nothing long or drawn out, just a lean over "hey baby, I am here and I love you" kinda kiss, perhaps 3/4 of a second? As we were walking back to our rooms, my father "discussed" with me whether he should say anything to my brother for such outlandish actions in the middle of the dining room...

    As best I could, I counciled him that perhaps he could keep that to himself as the vast majority of the room had neither seen it, nor would they be offended by it.

    But "Father" was made with a different mold and a different cloth to be sure. While I consider my morality and such pretty good, it doesn't hold a candle to this gentleman... But most of his life was spent at a different time.

    I had to laugh when I say the thread title! My mother was a semi-pro comedian/entertainer. She used to do banquets all over east TN and the Southeastern US. One of her characters was Gloria. She worked at The TenderTouch, a massage parlor whose motto was "We won't rub ya the wrong way!" ROFLMAO... Lord how I miss that woman! Her advice on relationships and the feminine perspective are sorely missed.
