Public Notice: The Rules For Canoodling

With all the talk about the stars and who they’re canoodling with, many of us may be inclined to keep up with, if not the Joneses, the Jolie-Pitts.

But, while canoodling and public displays of affection can be exciting to read about, and may even offer us some ingenious ideas, we must proceed with caution.

After all, experts assert that it’s imperative to: 1) Realize that we are acting “privately” out in PUBLIC and 2) put yourself in the position of all those around you.

From fawning all over via kissy faces and pet names to barely leaving any breathing room between you, feeding each other and actually “getting cozy” even in a crowd, can leave others, even those you are with feeling a bit “claustrophobic” and awkward, especially if they are flying solo.

And, while it is nice to see couples getting along, it’s really uncomfortable to see them getting it on, especially between the appetizers and the main course….ours that is.

In fact, relationship experts suggest staying with the socially acceptable affection guidelines:

1. Get A Grip On Your Inner Teen: While we can almost excuse these young paramours for “grabbing”, “groping” and make eyes at each other, most of us should be past that point and any PDAs that require a rating are simply rude.

2. Don’t Make Private Matters Public: Especially if your with a group of people, some of which are not part of a twosome, it’s imperative to reserve your private jokes for when you are in private. Remember, that last thing you want to do is embarrass your partner and/or your company.

3. Keep A Healthy Distance: While it’s perfectly acceptable to hold hands while strolling along, holding your partner’s hand or sitting on his lap while dining is not. Remember, a little “distance” makes the heart grow fonder, so remember to leave each of you some breathing room when you’re not “just the two of you”.
