    Do you prefer a relationship full of mush and goo, or one where you don't need constant declarations of love and romance?

    My neighbor and her husband are mushy to the point of making me nauseous at times. She calls him honey buns, sweetie pie and is alway hugging him.:urp:

    I don't mind a little romance, but anything over the top just makes me uncomfortable.

    Nothing over the top for me either.

    I think plain respect and admiration are great and go far. Too much mushy stuff makes it seem fake to me.

    I've never been mushy but I am with my bf, we just are it's not forced or anything, that's just the way we are. not in front of people though, just when we're alone together.

    I wouldn't call it 'false', different people have different ways of expressing themselves and some people act out by being what we'd consider 'lubby'. I don't see a problem with it as long as they can stay off each other while we're out in public.

    That's basically where I stand. In public I consciously refrain from getting too close to her too often for the fact that I know how obnoxious it is. She, on the other hand, doesn't have that filter and I have to kind of give her a wag of the finger every once in a while. In private,though, we are rather 'mushy' with each other just because it makes us feel both good.

    I do agree with you, I probly should have added those parts.

    Yes, it's those over-zealous public displays that irritate me.

    I'm a PDAer...but yes, there are some things that are better said and done when you don't have an audience for it, otherwise you risk to disgust people and make them feel uncomfortable.

    I love hugging my boyfriend. We do have little pet names for each other but nothing too mushy. We do keep it private but I am a sucker for romance. I used to think it was too much when it was other people but for some reason I love it when it's me.

    I'm bad like that, but not that extreme.

    I understand my girlfriend is different and that was difficult to get used to, but it works.
