'My boyfriend is obsessed with PDA'

Jan 04, 2013, 06:24 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I'm a 27-year-old girl in a healthy relationship with a 29-year-old guy. We've been going strong for a year now.

The only glitch in our otherwise stable affair is my boyfriend loves making out in public but I’m rather uncomfortable with the idea. I’m always conscious when I’m outdoor. On the contrary, he is very flamboyant and feels like expressing his love for me irrespective of the location. I don’t wish to come across as a spoilsport so I don’t know how to tell him that we keep our thing in private and get a room instead!

Dear Prerna, 
Just tell him how you feel about it. Making out in public places is gross and the onlookers are more embarrassed than even you. Plus you don’t want an audience watching you in the act, right? If he doesn’t respect your wishes then he is the wrong guy for you. It’s perfectly okay to tell him that you don’t like it. Explain to him you don’t want to hurt the guy’s feelings and that you are telling him because you care.
