over the weekend, me and my boys and my boyfriend went on a mini-vacay.. while walking thru the aquarium, every chance I got I was kissing him and grabbing his butt.. not in front of people, secretly, like when we would turn a corner or something.. and he goes
"you're a little but pervy in public.."
I was thinking WTF? Is this uncommon? Do people not want to touch their SOs?? I'm confused. I mean we've been together for 2 1/2 years, but I only recently introduced him to my kids and my family, so up until the past 8 months, we havent spent a ton of time outside of quiet dates and late nights together..
It depends on where we are and what your definition of PDA is. We are ALWAYS holding hands in public. If we are waiting in line for something, I will usually stand in front of him and lean back on him.
Then, there are times (concerts, bars, etc.) that we might get a little more...ambitious, with a butt grab here, or some smooching, etc.
It's all about time and place.
BTW - my husband thinks a "little bit pervy" is good. LOL It keeps things interesting!
I think it probably just has to do with the thought of someone possibly seeing that makes him uncomfortable. Especially if your kids were with you. He might not feel comfortable with "pervy" in public. Might just ask him if it makes him uncomfortable or not.
My hubs wasn't big on PDA for years, outside of holding hands. He didn't even want to kiss on the lips in public. It was okay though, we're not the most "touchy" people in public anyway. In the house we try to make an effort to show the kids that it's okay to show affection via touch to your spouse. A cuddle, a soft touch on the arm, hugs, a kiss (without tounge). That's just us.
That isn't to say that we don't get a little "grabby" in certain situations. We're just really conscious of who's around us.
