    For those of you who have been in a relationship for a long time, do you still kiss and hug each other in public, or walk around holding hands? If not, when did you stop doing it? Are you generally more or less affectionate towards each other now than you were at the beginning of your relationship?

    I've never really been into PDAs, no matter how long the relationship has been going on. *shrugs*

    We never have in a 'we must do it ZOMG' way, because that's usually a sign of insecurity and the mindset of 'I must prove I like her or else she'll not know and leave me'.

    I guess it depends on the couple, but I guess, generally, they stop when they feel secure enough to not need to unless their affection genuinely calls for it.

    Note, this does not mean our affection for each other is any less!

    Nine years, and yes we absolutely do that, and are about as affectionate now as when we started going out.

    Nine years? Jeez, I'm guessing you're not the typical 18 year old TSR user...?

    hold hands, absolutely. Kiss, but not make out.

    In my previous relationship we still did this in public after a year. For this relationship (2-3 months in), we do aswell.

    I don't see why you should stop doing it after a while? If you're not in love with the person after a certain time, why would you still have the relationship?

      Been together 3 years. We don't do it as often as we used too but we still do hold hands and kiss and hug in public. Will probably never stop.

      I know it seems really young, but we knew within weeks that we had a very special connection, I would do anything for him and he the same for me he's also 26 so a bit older, but I was as ready as him to make the commitment

      I'm in a long-distance relationship (he lives around 250 miles away from me) so when we actually see each other, we're very affectionate with each other in public- purely because we want to spend and savour all our time together we don't really snog publicly, though, or do anything that might cause other people to be sick! But we have reached a point where we don't care what other people think. Maybe it'd be different if we lived nearer together?

      We're not very lovey-dovey in public at all! An occasional kiss if there's a reason i.e he's being really cute! I don't see the necessity in being all coupley in public. I know I love him and vice versa, don't need to tell the whole world lol.

      More so than at the outset, curiously enough.

      There's nothing worse than seeing two people suck each other's face off. Especially when you're stood behind them in a queue. AWKWARD.

      I find it more awkward when on the train, a packed one even worse - and they're right in front of you: It's just like ahhh wheretolookwheretolook?!

      Been together 4.5 years and we're married. Never been a couple for PDA's; we very very rarely even hold hands in public lol. Although we must still be very 'couply' cos someone stopped us and asked whether we were married because we looked 'so happy' together, heh :love:
