what would you describe as lovey-dovey?
I've only been in 2 relationships [only one of them irl] and in both cases me and my SO were best friends, and cuddly at the same time.
I really admire them for what they are, I enjoy talking to them, and we do a lot of things together, discuss stuff, learn about stuff. Then there's also a lot of hugs, holding hands and things like that, but it's not what the relationship is built on - rather something I do because of how much I like them and how happy they make me. Seems like a natural reaction.
in my one and only relationship we were completely platonic in public (we barely held hands) and alone we were pretty touchy feely
First 3-6 months of a relationship? Pretty lovey dovey, touchy feely, new love is kinda… like that, I guess.
Anytime after that I revert to my natural state of being which is generally "don't touch me."
I'm married but my parents have long described as "an old couple". We'd been dating for 6 years before we got married so we're at 7 now (will be 8 this October).
We're not big into PDA (holding hands and laying on each other on the couch is about it before one of us farts anyway) and I'm really really not the touchy feeling kind of person. I'm more a hang out and maybe cuddle sort of person but give me my space and let me play my video games.
I more enjoy the "I have someone I can talk to when I need it" part of the relationship any anything physical that encompasses a typical relationship my sex drive in practically non-existent but personally that's not what it's about to me.
Sometimes we stay up all night talking about things and I think that's when I feel the closest to him. He's the one person who I'm this open with and he helps me talk about things I'm still struggling to express. Also he makes me food without him I'd probably starve.
oh yeah, people who kiss and grope each other in public are disgusting.
