Life truly is a boomerang. What you give, you get. – Dale Carnegie
Give love unconditionally.
Give time generously.
Give attention intentionally.
Give affection lavishly.

Give your mind freely.
Give your body unreservedly.

It seems to me that PDA’s get a bad rap. Especially if you are a married couple expressing affection to your spouse in public. Do people have issues with ALL public Displays of Affection? Or just certain types?
That was the question on my mind when I decided to ask it over at Yahoo Answers:
If you can’t read the question, it was this: Why do Public Displays of Affection get a bad rap? You hear alot of “no PDA’s” – why are public displays of (genuine) affection a bad thing? (I’m not talking about playing tonsil hockey, or excessive fondling).
I received some interesting answers:
From Suzy Q – It’s just inappropriate. It’s like people can’t control themselves long enough to get behind a door. Unless it’s a quick closed-mouth kiss, PDA is icky.
From Dee C – I guess it’s because some people feel uncomfortable for a different array of reasons, some feel jealous, and some people just like to find any little thing to make a big deal out of. I personally enjoy genuine pda with my s.o. and don’t care what others do.
Anonymous chimed in with – It gets a bad rap because most people take it too far. My husband is very affectionate, so he often kisses me in public, but it’s always very tasteful… many times just a simple peck on the cheek. I don’t think that kind of PDA is unacceptable. It’s when people are grabbing each other’s butts and sticking their tongues down each other’s throats (which is usually the case) that people find it distasteful.
Toxic Panda said – It’s only a bad thing by virtue of it being against societal norms (the way most of us were raised). So when someone goes against those norms others around them feel “uncomfortable”. Puritans do still have a lingering affect up U.S. societal norms..PDA is one such thing that can still get people in a tizzy.
Just Me thinks only pecks on the cheek are ok – A peck on the cheek fine. Anything else can wait for a more appropriate and private time.

Lost that lovin’ feeling? The passion and zest you once had in your marriage? I’d like to offer you 6 ways to kick boredom out of the bedroom (and every other room)!
The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity. ~Dorothy Parker
My 4 year old son can play in the dirt (for hours, it seems) and never get bored. He sits right on the edge — where the pavement meets the grass. Rocks, dirt and a little boy. He asks me to come look at something he has found. A bug, A rock, A hole. He is surveying the ground and interested in what he sees.
Your spouse might not be full of rocks or covered in dirt (unless that’s your thing). Seriously though: Have you stopped being curious about your spouse? Do you assume you know them inside and out? Continue Reading…
