    Very, In fact I enjoy both seeing people that are obviously head over heals in love, and being one of those people head over heals in love.
    Watching two elderly people walking hand in hand is one of my favorite P.D.oA. smile

    For only a short time, did I have a mother to guide me.

    She was able to share so very little of her wisdom or life experience.

    She did, manage to tell me,   sex, is not a spectator sport.

    I have not ever, forgotten this.

    My Mama told me.............

    I think it is great if we are talking about holding hands, giving your love a kiss or a hug; I see nothing wrong with that.  I don't think you should be doing sexual acts but to show affection is great!  There should be more of it.  I have been married just about 30 years and just the other night my wife and I walked down town holding hands and we even stopped to give each other a kiss.  When I was married I was told to not be afraid to show my affection for my wife, and I never have been afraid to do that.

    Very comfortable particularly in older and younger couples.  Seeing two old people smiling at one another, holding hands stealing a kiss here and there is a beautiful sight to be seen.
    Then there's the young couples. Usually teens, walking down the street holding hands or arm in arm, smiling, laughing, in a world of love all on their own is so adorable a reminder of one's own first love.
    Having said that, seeing people groping and tongue lashing and (as seen in some parks at night) engaging in lascivious acts makes me very uncomfortable and I feel is an improper conduct of affection.

    I frown on it generally. I think it's unnecessary. Sure, there are intimate ways to enjoy your partner, but many times I feel people do it for exhibition. I've seen both extremes, too: I lived in a country where there was absolutely no PDA (even never seeing parents kiss their kids) to visiting one where people came close to making love on the streets! I say just go home and be affectionate.

    The most beautiful thing there is to watch! Gives me a happy feeling inside, knowing love does exist.

    Affection however is something different than having 'dry sex' with your partner on the dancefloor. It won't bother me really but I know other people feel awkward around it. Too much in their face.

    For me it's beautiful as well, but then again I have quite an open mind on displaying your affection to your partner in public. I wouldn't do the same but there is a certain excitement to it, for people who like to be seen like that in public. I can understand why, but I'm careful with it myself.

    I can do it but
    i don't like it.
    What an IRONY!

    For me, i say
    if you like it do it
    if you don't just don't
    give a damn!

    Since I haven't a clue what PDA? is I have no idea what you are talking about, but hugs and kisses are quite welcome always.

    PDA is more awkward for me if people I know personally are doing it. Especially when I'm the only other person around.

    If it's two people I don't know and it's in public, it's not as awkward, but it's not something I would do.

    Personally, I prefer to keep the intimacy behind closed doors. A little peck here and there wouldn't be too much for me, but I really don't think other people wanna see all our business. Cause I know when I see people making out in public I cringe.
