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