Falling in love is a wonderful and a beautiful feeling, and when it happens, we want the world to know about it. But what it the right amount of showing it? Public Displays of Affection "PDA" can elicit a wide range of reactions at times. How often have you gone out and seen couples getting all cosy in public and stared at them for doing so. Do you favour PDA or just turn away your face from the sight? Is there any "acceptable" limit or is it based on just what the couple finds to be acceptable?
Personally, I am a bit shy, but when it comes to expressing my love, I do not care what others have to say, which does not mean that I would do any sort of thing just in the name of "love." I believe every emotion has various ways in which it can be expressed, doing it publicly or privately does not change your love for someone.
There is a thin line between expressing love and making things look vulgar. Today, the mentality of Indians in changing. They are accepting the fact that love is not something that has to be shown only in a closed space, but it is something, when done in limit, can even be shown publicly, without causing embarrassment.
I love it when people express their love publicly, the way they pamper each other and make each other feel special. It is not like they are proving to the world that they love each other. They just show it when they feel like doing it, not suppressing their feelings for a later time when it would be a "private display of affection."
It is always a personal choice as to whether we want or do not want to express our love publicly. But what if one person likes doing it but his/her partner does not like it? What is the middle way? Will the person who likes it stop expressing himself/herself because the partner does not like it? Will that person suppress his feelings and save them for a later date and a private space?
Love is a beautiful feeling. Without you even realizing, it would change you into a totally different person, and invoke all emotions in you. And there is no harm in expressing it unless you do it within the acceptable limits. So go ahead, give a hug, spread love!!!
