I had an email exchange with a guy ‘friend’ of mine, and basically for some reason made a list of key facts I think a guy needs to know about me going into a relationship….or even when getting involved with me.
The list includes things like:
~I hate people who “show up” at my house/apartment. I literally will not open the door if you do this, and most likely will never talk to you again.
~If forced to spoon, I’d rather be the big spoon.
~And I hate PDA. (By hate I mean loath! It makes me very uncomfortable, in fact)
So we are bantering back and forth, and I get the following.
“What are PDAs?”
(and then I get)
“ I just googled it and it said that it was something like a portable organizer, but that’s not what you mean, right?”
Ok…seriously, dude! You’re great, but who doesn’t know what PDA is? In fact as I was typing “PDA” to him, I started writing it out in full, but thought:
Me: Self, that is silly, just make it short form.
Self: Of course, why am I writing it all out?
Me: Exactly, it’s self-explanatory.
Well apparently, there are grown ups (and smart educated ones at that) walking around not knowing the term PDA. And this is just another reason why PDA’s should not be allowed. If not everyone between the ages of 20-40 knows what this is or means that we should recognize it as not “legal”.
Oh…for reference, in case you didn’t know.
PDA = Public Displays of Affection (aka, people being inappropriate in public)
I have never been a fan of the PDA. I don’t like doing them and I don’t like seeing them.
I feel like I used to believe that guys hated PDA’s and girls wanted them. I had a little twitter back and forth a few weeks back with a twitter buddy (a single girl) She basically got dumped because she wouldn’t hold hands with the guy she had been seeing for a few weeks. Now she and I agree on the PDA’s (not fans) she might be alittle more anti them then me (I thought I was bad) Anyways, her guy left her at the bar. Got up and straight up left her sitting there for “not holding his hand the other day”. Or at least that is what he told her. And I believe it, cause if that’s a ‘breakup line’ it’s either terrible, or kind of genius and we all know guys aren’t that genius!
When it comes to the PDA:
~I might (might) hold your hand. BUT will defiantly not be while walking in a crowded place, and will let go of it so much that you’ll just get sick of trying.
~If I happen to ‘makeout’ with you on a corner some place and I’m not shit face drunk, I might actually like you.
~I will bluntly and loudly tell you not to put your arm around me in public.
~Public transit is no place for anything private (including conversations)
~I will not massage your back in public, thank you very much.
~I can even be awkward with general people when it comes to the handshake or hug/check kiss moments
SO the question is. What do you LOVE or HATE about the (inappropriate) PDA?
(reason #___why I’m single: I won’t make out with you on the train!)
