Is the summer heat making us hot and bothered? I think so. Everyone from the presidential couple to Justin and Selena are making out and putting it on display. Whether you have a summer love or not, your blood starts boiling even as you think of old flames and what you want to do to your new summer love. Public display of affection is infectious and I like it… the right way.
I’ll admit, I’m not a big fan of groping and grabbing my honey in public like Justing Bieber and Selena Gomez, but they’re young. We all did it at some point. You experience it and move on.
I prefer the sweet little peck like President Obama and the First Lady, Michelle Obama.
For women public display of affection is tricky. Men love putting their hands on you. The Five Love Languages, by Gary Chapman prove that most men and many women love physical attention. You want to show the person you love (or like) them, but you don’t want to hear “get a room” from onlookers. I have a rule: if we’ve been involved for a few months or more we can hold hands and peck. After marriage I am perfectly happy to show the world how far my tongue can go down your throat (just kidding… kinda).
PDA is full of love, but it can bite you in the butt. Making out with man after man, just doesn’t look good, even if you truly loved each one of them. We all want love to last forever, but if you break up (and many relationships do) you are making out in the street with every man who catches your eye. Seriously. Let’s go down PDA Lane with Kimye…
Okay, okay, that last photo with Ray J and Kim Kardashian is technically in “private.” But, you get the point.
Discretion is key. Making out with every sexy man on your arm in public isn’t showing love for him, it’s showing a lack of love for yourself. Here are some ideas: sneak off to private place, give a quick peck, a kiss on the cheek or forehead is endearing and sexy.
I know the above people can’t help being caught on camera, but we can. Don’t take pictures of you and your flavor of the month making out. It’s just tacky!
One day when you’re married and with children you will be happy you don’t have tons of pictures of you draped across some mans face.
Keep it classy, Hotties.
