The Dos and Don’ts of PDA


PDA. No, this is not the 90s, and I’m not talking about your personal digital assistant. I’m talking about public displays of affection. Admit it. You’ve either been “that couple” who gets a little too touchy in public, or you’ve been the unfortunate person who has to watch “that couple.” Truthfully, you’ve probably been both. I’m fully willing to admit that I have been.

PDA is kind of a touchy issue (see what I did there?) because people have very different ideas about what is appropriate. Think you need a little guidance? We’ve sorted out what’s A-Okay and what’s a little questionable when it comes to sharing the love in public.

Garnet is a student at Columbia University in New York City. She is “that person” who starts dancing at a party when everyone else is standing around, and if there were a Facebook stalking Olympics, she would be a gold medalist. She also loves cheesy 90s music, and almost died of happiness when Vanilla Ice retweeted her. Once. Follow her on Twitter @garnethenderson.
