PDA, When is it too much?
I recently just got back from a Jon Bon Jovi concert with my family in Hollywood, Florida. I loved what I heard at the concert, but NOT what I saw.
Two teenagers were sitting in front of me, and getting on my nerves. Don’t get me wrong I like teens, I am one, but these teens were not acting like they should, especially in public. They were all over each other! It was gross! I couldn’t see Jon, and I really didn’t want to spend my night watching people make-out!
A couple came to sit in their seats next to us, right behind the ‘lovers’. I warned the woman next to me as she sat down that what was in front of her wasn’t pretty. She laughed and said “I’ll say something if it gets too disturbing”. She didn’t know what she was in for.
About half-way through the show Casey, the woman next to me, her boyfriend, Lee, my mom and I had had enough. We started to make fun of them. For example whenever they started to make-out we would lean close to them and say things like; “Ew, gross!” or “I can’t see, can you?” or we could cough really loudly.
We started to talk about relationships and how I should never date a guy like that. Then we started to wonder about their relationship. We wondered about how that guy got the girl on a date. We came up with this theory: we think that the guy got the tickets from his father in order to make himself look good in front of the girl. He asked her out and she said yes, thinking he had gotten the tickets himself, therefore making her look like she had a really rich boyfriend.
It got even worse. The 40-something-year-old and his wife, who sat next to the teen couple, decided to have a make-out contest with them. It was horrifying! I will forever be scared.
Finally, after the make-out contest was over, I couldn’t take it anymore. I tapped both, the guy and the girl, on the shoulder and said “Excuse me, I don’t mean to be rude, and I don’t know how to say it, but can you keep that to a minimum, I can’t see and it’s a little annoying.” They said “Sure,” and turned around. I have never seen such a display of PDA, and immaturity at the same time. They started to make-out and jump all over each other! It was gross.
I have just one question: Why do people think that they HAVE to have so much PDA in a relationship?
I don’t know --- I’m only 13!
