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 Olympics’ 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, “I was absolutely dreading they were going to come and show myself and my wife.” Still, with the Games in full swing, there was a lot more to pay attention to, and William seems to have escaped the camera’s focus.

What are some ways that PDA can detract from those around you?

Cupid’s Advice:

If you’re with your partner, it’s often hard not to show your affection through PDA. However, there are some reasons why it’s often good to restrain yourselves when you’re in public. Here are some things to consider:

1. Making others feel uncomfortable: There’s nothing wrong with holding hands or some quick kisses when you’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 couple’s comfort level, but also at the comfort level of those you’re spending time with.

2. Missing out on other things: When you’re spending time with your partner, it’s easy to feel like you’re in your own world, especially if you’re letting yourselves show some PDA. Don’t let that take away enjoying whatever you’ve came to see. For example, if you went to a play, you don’t want to miss the plot because you’re so busy with your significant other.

3. Your partner might not be willing: Don’t forget that PDA can detract from your partner’s comfort as well. Some affectionate people aren’t willing to show that side of them in public, so make sure that they’re okay with cuddling before you start. You wouldn’t want to make them do something they don’t want to do.
