LeAnn Rimes and new husband Eddie Cibrian were anything, but shy at an NBC upfront bash at Del Posto in NYC last week.  According to UsMagazine.com, the newlyweds were indulging in some major PDA at the party.  They were apparently “making out in the middle of [everything],” said a source.  The source explained by saying that Rimes was “making a compete scene and holding up her camera as they are making out so she [could] take pictures of them making out — it was unreal.”

Is there such a thing as too much PDA?

Cupid’s Advice:

Everyone has a different opinion on what is an acceptable amount of affection to reveal to the public.  Cupid has some general guidelines to follow when you’re unsure:

1. Think about another couple: If you saw a random couple in public, would it gross you out to watch them make out in front of you?  If the answer is “yes,” then you probably should refrain from doing the same thing with your partner.  As the old adage says, treat those around you as you’d want to be treated.

2. Decide if it’s necessary: It’s always a good thing to ensure that your partner feels loved and cared for at all times, and that includes when you’re out in public.  That said, think about whether showing excessive affection in front of people is truly needed.  The answer is, probably not.

3. Analyze your reasoning: Are you just showing affection in front of people to make someone jealous?  Are you simply trying to reassure yourself that the relationship is solid?  Either way, those are probably not good reasons to do it.  Sometimes the reasoning behind our actions reveal deeper truths.
