Performer Jessica Simpson was spotted smooching new beau Eric Johnson on a yacht Saturday, where they celebrated Simpson’s 30th birthday.Â According to US Weekly, the couple was seen kissing and cuddling all over Capri during their PDA-filled weekend in Italy.Â The two have dated since May, but have only recently been open to the public about their relationship.
PDA: How much is too much?
Public displays of affection can be a sweet way to tell the world youâ€™re in love, but too much can make you seem insecure, or even rude.Â Here are some tips you should keep in mind when youâ€™re out in the open:
1. Be aware of where you are: Where you are can be a key factor.Â If youâ€™re at a club or a crowded rock concert, youâ€™ll most likely leave without anyone noticing.Â But if youâ€™re at a family function with your significant otherâ€™s parents, tone it down – several notches at best.
2. Are you both comfortable? Some people donâ€™t like PDA at all.Â Do you feel your partner pulling away every time you lean in? Â Chances are, he or she isnâ€™t into it, or may be embarrassed.Â Everyoneâ€™s different; find out what your partnerâ€™s boundaries are.
3.Â Remember who youâ€™re with: Itâ€™s one thing to make out on a park bench around complete strangers, but itâ€™s a different story when you do it at the movies or while dining with friends.Â Be sure youâ€™re not making anyone else feel uncomfortable.
