PDA in NYC

Maybe spring was in the air.

I don’t know but it was bloody annoying.

I readily admit to being somewhat cynical, certainly a bit bitchy (more or less depending on who you ask) but come on!!

We are not just talking a quick kiss or holding hands. What we couldn’t get away from the entire weekend (no joke) was full-on get-a-room I feel like I should be paying for this PDA.

Consenting adults can do what they want in the privacy of their own homes, behind closed doors, I don’t really care. I just don’t want to see it when I am trying to enjoy a fantastic Cuban meal at Victor’s Cafe.

We were minding our own business, waiting on a friend in the restaurant when I was distracted by this couple in my direct line of vision. He was coming back from the washroom or something, she stood up to meet him, they grabbed each other and kissed for what seemed like an eternity. But it didn’t stop there- it was like this the entire night. Perhaps ordering in might have been a good idea.

There were apparently other couples going at each other at the restaurant. Really? You couldn’t not paw each other for the two hours it takes to have dinner?

What do you people have to prove?

I’m talking about you at the NBA store, the couples at the Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan concert at The Bowery (especially the guy who couldn’t stop cupping his girlfriend’s face), the man during brunch who was practically lying on the table to console his crying girlfriend (and practically engaging my friend in a three-way), all the people getting it on in the middle of the street (blocking foot traffic).

People who block foot traffic should be slapped in the head but at the very least the manhandling could be taken to one side.

I don’t know if we were just especially sensitive to the excessive displays of PDA but it almost felt like we were unwitting participants on an extended Candid Camera gag.

Considering my reaction that is one waiver I would NOT be signing.
