Does Public display of intimacy make you uncomfortable?

I've seen most of the Indians having issues with PDA or Public Display of Affection or intimacy, do you have an issue? If so why?


Personally I don't have a problem. Different cultures may have different standards to define PDA. But in an ideal society it should not be a problem because there will be homogeneity of upbringing. But we live in a multicultural society, so there has to be some standard for acceptability but it should not be guided by religious or any concern that imposes on the rightful freedom of anybody.


The problem is that, the line defining PDA and sleaze varies from person to person. So, what's perfectly acceptable as PDA for one person may be sleaze for another. If you specify an act - for example, kissing in public, is acceptable or not, may be you'll get a real and clear response.


ChutneypuDi: well for starters long while ago holding hands was a sort of PDA, and elders were put off due to that! So have we evolved over the proximity?

I have no issues with PDA. But there's a time and place, and a fine line between displaying affection and being sleazy.
