Is PDA'ing Appropriate If You've Only Been Dating A Few Months Like Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Have?

Justin and Selena locked lips after his big win at the Billboard Music Awards. Should they have kept their desire behind closed doors?

It’s a rare thing to see Justin Bieber and girlfriend Selena Gomez displaying any kind of affection — heck, it’s a rare thing to hear them admit they’re a couple! — but they finally put their relationship on display with some PDA at the Billboard Music Awards Sunday night. Is this kind of public lip-locking acceptable in a new relationship or totally a no-go?

The tween lovebirds were apparently more than a little excited to see one another after several weeks apart. Although there were no touchy-feely shenanigans early in the night, the mood changed after JB won the Digital Artist of the Year award May 22: he celebrated by smooching and hugging his lady love.

You know what: PDA’ing during the early stages of a relationship is perfectly fine. The first three months of any new love affair is universally referred to as “the honeymoon stage.” Your hormones are running wild, the chemistry between you and your man snaps, crackles and pops. You are “mad to be in contact”, as the great poet Walt Whitman once wrote.

If you aren’t doing/feeling any of these things during the early days of your relationship, well, I’ll be honest with you: that isn’t a positive sign. A lack of contact is nearly as bad as too much contact.

Speaking of ‘too much’, when I say it’s OK to PDA, I mean it. But please be aware of how frisky you’re getting! The Biebster kissing his girlfriend after winning a big award is perfectly acceptable, but you shouldn’t be getting it on with your guy in public. Clothes need to stay on. There need not be any kind of ‘noises’ (i.e. groans, mutters or moans). Tongues should stay where they can’t be seen.

You feel what I’m saying? Keep it classy.
