I’m all for a little PDA. I’ll admit I’m a hand holder, a cuddler, always wanting to have some contact with my guy even in public. However, I stopped hardcore making out in front of people when I was 17 (ok, drunk make out sessions in bars not withstanding).
But you know what really grinds my grits? this new form of PDA, electronic PDA or e-PDA if you will. Specifically, Facebook e-PDA. I just don’t get it. Why do I need to read such things as:
Last night was amazing baby, my bed feels so empty without you! 😉
Um, helloooo? I don’t need a visual of the escapades that took place in your bed last night.. I especially don’t need to be seeing such things on my cousin’s or Aunt Sue’s wall. Okay, maybe I’ve never seen such a scandalous thing on an Aunt’s wall but I feel like it’s only a matter of time!
Furthermore, why do couples need to confess their love for all the world to see via each others facebook walls.
Hi Sweetheart!! I just wanted to say you are the most amazing boyfriend ever. You really truly are the very best my little sunshine! My life was not complete until you came into it. I’m never ever ever letting you go pumpkin. I love you so much and I miss you soo much. KISSSSSSSESSSSS! XOXOXOXO
Even if I was in love, I would not write this sort of message nor would I want someone to write this to me via a public forum like facebook. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for being mushy gushy sometimes through texts or emails, in fact, I love sending and receiving cutesy messages, just not on my Facebook wall for all my friends and family to see.
Just like I learned that making out in public after a certain age was somewhat distasteful, I feel like leaving such messages on facebook walls is now the equivalent of hardcore making out in a crowded room.
It just comes off as a cry for attention to me. All “look at how in love and happy I am. Everyone be jealous of me.” But it doesn’t make me jealous, it usually just makes me nauseous. I don’t need to know your pet names for each other:
Daddy Big One
Please, enough is enough!
Just like I’m all for a little real life PDA, I can be all for a little e-PDA. A simple “I miss you” “I love you” “Can’t wait to see you” I find these all perfectly acceptable. Just like a peck on the lips or holding hands is acceptable. My issue is that people are hardcore making out on Facebook walls and all I have to say is…
