4. But there's nothing worse than PDA on the bus where you can't escape.


5. Or seeing it on the train on the way to work.

8. But even if you look away sometimes you can still hear that kissing noise, which is GROSS.

Like the sound of two fish being slapped together.

9. There's nothing worse than being the third wheel with your handsy couple friends.

10. Or being in the lounge when your housemate brings their new boyfriend over.

11. But it's even worse when you're in a relationship and your partner is really into PDA.

And you don't want to offend them but then, PEOPLE MIGHT SEE.

12. Because this is just about the only acceptable PDA you're willing to participate in.

13. And you can just about deal with hand holding.

Except when it's summer then it's just sweaty and gross.

14. Because you only engage in PDA when you’re drunk.

And then it's PDA with everyone. Your SO. Your friends. Random people.

15. The kiss cam is your absolute idea of hell.

16. You live in fear of the “you may now kiss the bride” moment if you ever get married.


Kissing IN FRONT OF ALL OF YOUR RELATIVES *breaks into cold sweat*.

17. You even sometimes feel uncomfortable with PDA on TV.

Especially when your parents are in the room :/
