Let’s go to the park…
I wanna kiss you underneath the stars…
I love this song. I even love singing it at karaoke.
Like, it’s one of my go to songs in my vocal bible.
As much as people love Public Displays of Affection...I despise them.
It’s not because I’m queer and I hate that we can’t express ourselves as freely.
It’s literally because I’m like…a little kid EWWWWWWWW *side eye*
This is just a personal opinion of mine. I’m cool with hand holding and being booed up and shit but the full-on make out sessions in parks, in parking lots, in the airport, on fucking planes, CHILL THE FUCK OUT WITH ALL THAT MESS.
ON A SOCIETAL NOTE, it does bother me that straight couples can pretty much dry hump in public and no one bats an eye but a non-heterosexual couple is demonized, ridiculed and spat on is so annoying by the black man, the white man, the church goers and any other person who doesn’t agree with the lbgtq+ community.
I constantly want to tell PDA people “get a room”, but the last thing I need is media attention for going off couples in public. I’m petty but I’m not that petty. I have some couth after all.
This also bring up the social media conversation. I am all for love everywhere, but GOT DAMN, every picture of you post is y’all. Do you work? Do you hang out with friends? Do you have other hobbies besides being with your partner? I mean I know you think this the one, but sis...
Maybe it’s just me. My last ex boyfriend, I remember I posted him one day as my man crush Monday. Mainly because he whined That I didn’t care for him because I didn’t include him on social media. I have a simple rule, I will include you if I want to and you can post me everywhere if you want. I know I hate going through all the pictures after breakups to delete all them suckas. Plus there is the factor that I don’t want to go through and delete pictures if we break up.
I remember there was an interview with Beyonce and Oprah about dating. I remember that interview because it was like “you don’t need to share with the world who you’re dating, now your husband, that’s different”. And that always stuck with me. It was a note that was real and honest and genuine.
See Oprah was dropping knowledge with most of the audience even knowing. In this day and age of social media rising, maybe it’s best to certain keep things private. Things like who you are dating and what you do for your partner. I’ve seen too many people first hand that would put all their business out on social media and it’s just out there. I believe relationships should have their secrecy. They should have all those moments that aren’t on social media.
I know me and mines have had several dates and trips and quality time that we’re never on social media. On our trip to Florida, we both posted pics and videos of each other and everyone went into a frenzy. My inner circle knows we’ve been dating for over 6+ months now, so I didn’t understand when people were reaching out. It was crazy. I told y’all about him lol. But seeing a single picture was that slight open reality into my personal life. Personally, I appreciate the hype and secrecy.
It opens the question now, why do others need to reach out and post things on their social media account every day with their significant other. Especially if they are not making any money off of it. I follow a couple of gay couple pages and I appreciate their accounts. Mainly because they show happy couples, but they are both models or in the entertainment industry and their posts helps the, generate revenue into their bank accounts. Until my posts of me and bae generates revenue, you will get whatever the fuck I posts.
Now, I’m not talking about the people who post once in awhile with their partner because they went to an event together. I’m talking about the people who every single thing they do, needs to be on social media. Chill, we know you are in a “happy” and “loving” in a relationship.
