When you see people slurping, licking and eating each other’s faces in public, do you think ‘Oh how cute!’ Or does it annoy you?
I once had someone who I went to dinner with suddenly reach over the table and stick his tongue right in my mouth…right in there…waking up my napping tonsils! This was a first ‘date’ – the equivalent of trying on a new pair of trousers to see if they fit.
He had just LOUDLY introduced me to the famous owner of the restaurant and the act seemed to be about showing off his latest arm candy, more than anything remotely spontaneous and sincere and with a lot of PDA instances this also seems to be the case. ‘YOOO HOOO!….LOOK AT US EVERYONE! WE ARE IN A RELATIONSHIIIIIIIIP!’
Personally I found it gross, perhaps because 1. I had zero attraction for this guy, but was open to seeing where things might go 2. I was caught totally unaware (I thought he wanted to whisper something lol!) and 3. folk were eating for Chrissake!
But even if WAS attracted to my dinner date I would still find it completely inappropriate and would tell the hottie to fix up – stick around, yes, but fix up and behave in public ffs!
But when you are in luuuuurve should you care what others think? Especially when you are young and everything is shiny and new. After all, you are hurting no one and Michael Bolton did say that ‘Love Is A Wonderful Thing’.
So School Me!
