Public Displays of Affection

How do you feel about public displays of affection, specifically in a romantic relationship? I’ve never really liked it in my own life and cringe 97% of the time other people do it. I’ve noticed it in church recently and while it’s great that two people are in love, I’m thinking, “Really? Do you HAVE to have your hands in each other’s back pockets while we’re singing ‘Great Is Thy Faithfulness’?” I’m fine with holding hands, a hug or a peck on the cheek or lips but beyond that, they just want attention! My personality isn’t one that craves attention so PDA is kind of the opposite of that.

So you’ll never see me getting all touchy feely in the grocery store. I won’t be caught tenderly scratching my partner’s back during a Sunday sermon. That couple making out at the OneRepublic concert? It wasn’t me. I’m the one who’s trying hard to not be noticed, just blending in to the crowd.

I’m an Enneagram 4 and on the Myers-Briggs test I’m definitely not an ESFP.

Thanks for dropping in…
