Don’t t̶a̶l̶k̶ ̶t̶o̶ kiss strangers

This video of strangers being asked to kiss each other for the first time went viral this week. It’s being hailed as “something kind of incredible”. I find it to be something kind of disgusting. My theory of kissing is this: 

  1. Kissing is something really special, emotional, and intimate.
  2. A kiss is a means of expressing physically and strengthening an emotional bond between two people.
  3. You should only kiss someone whom you are really in love with and whom you know well.

To waste a kiss on a stranger seems awful to me. It is circumventing the purpose of a true and beautiful kiss, which must express a love that already exists. It’s like sex outside of a committed relationship.

I consider kissing to be such a private and intimate expression that I almost cannot believe that people would do so in public. Why would you want to share it with strangers and bystanders? This is why I hate PDA (public displays of affection). It seems to me these couples who engage in PDA are not showing their love, they are showing off their love.

TLDR: Kissing is special, so stop kissing people you are not madly in love with, and don’t do it to show off.

    So about PDA as a general rule I don’t like to see it either however I don’t think that people do it to show off. Sometimes I find myself being very affectionate towards my fiance in public just because I am lost in a bubble with him and I have become oblivious to the fact that others may be watching.
