Although they may have had one of the most publicized weddings in history, Prince William was still embarrassed to appear with Kate Middleton on the Kiss Cam at the London Olympicsâ€™ Velodrome. Although the two have been major supporters of the 2012 Olympic Games, and William and Prince Harry are two of the Olympic ambassadors, People reports that William said, â€śI was absolutely dreading they were going to come and show myself and my wife.â€ť Still, with the Games in full swing, there was a lot more to pay attention to, and William seems to have escaped the cameraâ€™s focus.
What are some ways that PDA can detract from those around you?
If youâ€™re with your partner, itâ€™s often hard not to show your affection through PDA. However, there are some reasons why itâ€™s often good to restrain yourselves when youâ€™re in public. Here are some things to consider:
1. Making others feel uncomfortable: Thereâ€™s nothing wrong with holding hands or some quick kisses when youâ€™re out with your beau, but go too far with sloppy make out sessions and you could make the people around you feel uncomfortable. Remember to keep your PDA not only at your coupleâ€™s comfort level, but also at the comfort level of those youâ€™re spending time with.
2. Missing out on other things: When youâ€™re spending time with your partner, itâ€™s easy to feel like youâ€™re in your own world, especially if youâ€™re letting yourselves show some PDA. Donâ€™t let that take away enjoying whatever youâ€™ve came to see. For example, if you went to a play, you donâ€™t want to miss the plot because youâ€™re so busy with your significant other.
3. Your partner might not be willing: Donâ€™t forget that PDA can detract from your partnerâ€™s comfort as well. Some affectionate people arenâ€™t willing to show that side of them in public, so make sure that theyâ€™re okay with cuddling before you start. You wouldnâ€™t want to make them do something they donâ€™t want to do.
