It looks like love is on the horizon for major PDA participants and new celebrity couple, Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes. According to UsMagazine.com, the two were spotted locking lips on the beach in Cabello’s hometown, Miami. The “Senorita“ singers have been rumored to be dating since early July, though Mendes feverishly denied the rumor. The pair have been good friends since their 2015 duet, “I Know What You Did Last Summer,“ and are still publicly stating such friendship after their respective breakups with model, Hailey Bieber and relationship expert, Matthew Hussey. However, since the denial, the two have been seen at numerous dinners and concerts, cuddled up to each other. Could a relationship announcement be next?
In celebrity couple news, Shawn and Camila got hot and heavy in a pool in Miami. What are some ways to show your affection for your partner in public?
Whether you take it nice and slow or get hot and heavy, on occasion we all get swept up in PDA. There’s a style for all of us, be it hand holding to a hardcore make-out session. These are the ways to declare your partner yours in public:
1. Cuddle up: In order to bring in new customer, movie theaters have brought the experiences of home to movie goers. This comes with nifty new reclining seats whose arm rests lift up. This gives you free rein to enjoy snuggling up to your partner while watching the newest flick. Plus the dark area of a movie theater will have your PDA flying total under the radar. Of course, if your more brazen you can take a tip out of Camila and Shawn’s playbook and cuddled up while sharing food at a restaurant.
2. Hand holding: Vastly underrated and criticized for the potential of sweating palms, holding hand is the perfect amount of PDA. The tiny physical intimacy says to the world that you’re in love, but your still your own person. It does so by connecting the partners, but not cutting them off from their surroundings like kissing would. Out of all forms of PDA, it’s also the most likely to be tolerated by those around who are not very much in love with public affection.
3. Forehead kissing: This simple intimacy is easy to get away with in public. Soft lips on the forehead is very much an act of care which won’t produce an eye roll. It’s also a gentle reminder to your partner that you’re there for them whenever they need you. Pair with cuddling or holding hand as aforementioned will add a new layer to PDA which is still publicly acceptable.
