Public display of affection (PDA) isn't for everyone.
Couples create their own boundaries on how to express their love for one another in public, but some people seem to find PDA offensive or unnecessary.
Presenter Eusebius McKaiser asked listeners to share their opinions one being 'lovey-dovey' in public.
I used to love PDA, until I got married. It became weird.— Jesse, caller
PDA should be a good balance. People need to be conscious of how their displays of affection might impact other people. There's a line that should not be crossed.— Ronald, caller
I truly am a very affectionate person. It's part of my love language.— Dineo, producer

When I see a couple showing affection I am always reminded of how single I am. I get envious and jealous. Oho! @Eusebius— Nkosi (@nkosi___) January 10, 2018
Yhu I don’t like PDA 😭😫 actually I don’t like being affectionate. Not with anyone for anything https://t.co/pu5YISjuSZ— Dreamchaser (@KingKhanya91) January 10, 2018
Life's too short not to show affection to those you love. Sometimes I'll kiss and hug people in public that I don't even know. Ok I won't, but it would be nice if I could and especially if the missus didn't mind.— Kaloo (@Kaloo5) January 10, 2018
@Eusebius I love PDA's and anyone who has a problem should've been left in 2017.— Loyiso (@Loyiso) January 10, 2018
Nay. (On the basis of my jealousy)— Scapegoat (@AndiMakinana) January 10, 2018
It's only cute when it's old couples.
I do it all the time with my husband of 12 years. It’s so automatic, don’t even think twice about it. It just happens— Ntsoaki Nsibanyoni (@mrsNsiba) January 10, 2018
There's more than enough hate in the world. Evidence of love is much needed and I don't mind if at all.— Marianne Valentine (@MarianneValen20) January 10, 2018
Makes me uncomfortable, people who PDA a lot make me feel uncomfortable. Issa no from me.— m e e z u m o (@justmzeeAgain) January 10, 2018
All for it, I mean why not as long as it's not bedroom worthy things. When I'm in love I grab my partners hand, kiss him nje whenever— Samke Mndaweni (@cuppa_sam) January 10, 2018
Hayi for me. I generally I don't want to be touched. To other people : I am jealous of them.— Asisipho Guga (@GugaAsisipho) January 10, 2018
Yay, coz when u in love, you literally walk around the mall oblivious that there are people around you. ☺️☺️☺️— 🌈INTERgalacticGOAT🌈 (@PhoenixtheKat) January 10, 2018
I don’t mind if people hold hands or a peck here and there. It actually makes me smile and I makes me believe in love 😍— Lerato Shawane (@shawanel) January 10, 2018
However people can take it overboard and start fondling etc which makes people uncomfortable
There is definitely a limit to acceptable PDA 😂 otherwise things could get hella inappropriate...— Nicole (@nic_wern) January 10, 2018
