    Just wondering if people care about or are scared of showing affection with your special other in public?

    If it wasn't in a "friendly" area would you? or would you be scared of an attack?

    I tend to, because I frankly don't care what others think. Friendly area or not, I can defend myself and my boyfriend =P

    Definitely. Not too often and not to make a statement, but the times it feels right...yes.

    Yes, i want to walk with him sometimes holding hands.
    I want to kiss him when i feel like i want to.
    I want to caress his backhead when i feel like i am grateful to God but still listening to what he is saying.
    Whenever we stand stunned together looking at a romantic place or mother nature, i want to hug him from behind and feel love and warmth.


    I cannot do all these in my room!

    I try to work them up slowly. Holding hands during a movie or in the car. But sometimes people are too bashful for PDA.

    Yes. I will hold hands whenever possible, and give a peck on the lips when deemed appropriate based on the fact that heterosexuals would feel free to do so in the same situation.

    Depends on my mood and what's going on around me (e.g., are there kids watching?). Safety is never a consideration because I have more than adequate defensive/offensive skills (black belt) to fend off assholes.

    my boyfriend is 6'4 and not big on PDA so over the years we've developed a system where I just head butt him in the shoulder to show affection in public.

    I’ve done it many times – anything for a little controversy. I don’t and haven’t made out or anything too serious and watch it a bit if there are kids around. We displayed enough affection that one could tell that it wasn’t just a friendship.

    At a car show so i think we were making it obvious. This is why I don't like beer in the afternoon.

    And wonder why my bf would be posing under a signs that said this?

    We don't usually.. and that's because my partner and I have been involved since prior to when I even came out. While I'm much more comfortable with all of it now, the pattern was probably set years ago... that doesn't mean
    I wouldn't do .. depends on the circumstances and what was up.

    It sure as hell wouldn't be because I was "scared" or not... LOL

    I was on the Chicago el last week when 2 guys in their 20's boarded - 1 sat next to me, the other behind me. They were talking about random, ordinary things and I barely even noticed them - until the one sitting next to me kissed the guy behind him, said "have a nice day baby", then got off the train. It took me by surprise, but the great thing was NOBODY batted an eye!

    Kudos to the guys out there who aren't afraid to show affection and therefore normalize 2 guys showing basic affection in public.

    i think the thing is that people are like animals: they sense fear or tension.

    if you are comfortable in your own skin, other people will be too.

    the only people who would have a problem with modest public affection are people who have issues themselves. and some people have issues with ANY PDA, even among straight people.....there are crazy people out there.


    as for the original question.....yes, modestly

    Yeah...and more importantly for me, anyone I'm dating needs to be comfortable with holding my hand or walking down the street and showing minor affection...places where we're going to get killed for it (foreign countries, texas...) excluded...
