What are some appropriate times to display your affection for your partner?

Cupid’s Advice:

When you and your partner are very close, it’s understandable that you want to be affectionate whenever you can. However, there are times and places where PDA just isn’t appropriate. Here are some good times to show that you care:

 1. Date night: If you’re out at a restaurant or a bar without any other friends, you can certainly give your partner some sweet kisses and be generally affectionate. Dates are the perfect time for romance, so it makes sense to show it.

2. At the beach: Everyone looks sexier in the summer sun, so you shouldn’t be afraid to show your love for your partner with some PDA when you’re at the seashore. Even simple displays can make your beach date more romantic than it already is.

3. At a party: If you’re in a crowd at a party, try to find a quiet, secluded corner where you can spend some time alone with your partner. Cuddling together for a bit can make you feel like you’re the only ones around, even if you’re among many people.
