Kissing in public can be fun, but it can also make some people uncomfortable. In most places, you will only receive a few disapproving looks for your public displays of affection. However, kissing in public is taboo in many cultures and doing so can cause problems. Before kissing someone in public, pay attention to your surroundings. See if the other person is comfortable, and if not, don't go overboard.

Kiss in Public Step 2

Step 1. Be discreet

If you want to kiss someone in public, you can. This is not to say that kissing should evolve into a make-out session. When kissing in public, be discreet.

It's okay to do it in public, as long as there's no exaggeration. Don't use your tongue and don't put your hands under the other person's clothing. Anything more than a simple peck can make people uncomfortable

Step 2. Be aware of your surroundings

Kissing in public is not always acceptable. Even if you think no one is paying attention, maybe the timing isn't right.

  • For example, just because you're in a dark movie theater doesn't mean it's okay to make out. A kiss on the cheek is acceptable, but don't go overboard just because you think no one can see you.
  • Avoid kissing in crowds of people, such as in restaurants or supermarkets. An exception to this rule is nightclubs. It is common to see people kissing and dancing in these environments. If you're going out at night and feel like hooking up with someone, it's probably okay.

Step 3. Be aware of social mores

In some countries, kissing in public is a serious offense. In most Western countries, if someone is bothered by your kiss, you're likely to get a look or two of disapproval. However, in places like India, doing it in public can cause serious problems.

If you are thinking of traveling with your partner, get to know the local customs before departing. See which laws apply to public displays of affection. Don't limit your search to just kisses. For example, in China it is also prohibited for couples to walk hand in hand in public

Step 4. Any act that involves another person must be consensual

It doesn't matter where you are - you have to respect people's boundaries. Don't force a kiss on someone who doesn't want to kiss you. Nobody likes unwanted physical gestures.

Don't use public showing of affection as a tool to elevate your ego. When kissing in public, your focus should be on sharing a moment of affection with someone you care about. Don't do this just to communicate to the world that your partner is "committed."

Kiss Your Girlfriend Step 17

Step 1. Find out what makes the other person uncomfortable

If your partner pulls away when you lean in for a kiss in public, talk about it. Be understanding of your feelings and respect your opinion. Don't make him or her feel obligated to kiss you in public.

Just because your partner (or partner) doesn't want to do it in public doesn't mean he's ashamed of you. It probably just means he doesn't want to kiss you in certain places, like around work or friends

Step 2. Listen

There are several reasons why someone might not like kissing in public. Some reasons can be difficult to debate. Perhaps he or she has felt a lack of affection in past relationships or simply feels this is a private matter.

When your partner has finished speaking, respond with, "I understand why you feel this way." So explain your point of view. Don't deny his or her feelings, but try to get to the root of the problem

Step 3. Try to come to an agreement

Ask what your partner is comfortable doing in public. Don't do anything undesirable, like pulling him out to make out, in public.

If you come to an agreement where you both feel good holding hands and kissing on the cheek, respect those boundaries. Don't betray your partner's trust by doing something you know will make them uncomfortable
