PDA! Yes or No?

Posted on: February 23rd, 2013 by Executive Matchmaker Romella Battle

Chemistry.com gathered data and found out the top 10 cities that are comfortable with PDA (aka public displays of affection) and the top 10 that dislike seeing PDA. Personally, I don’t mind a small peck, holding hands, and PDA but if I see a couple making out while one person is sitting on top of another at a bus stop where there’s other people around, then I think “get a room”. I think that couples should show each other what they mean to each other but it doesn’t mean that everyone has to see you two grope each other while trying to mind their own business in public!

The top 10 cities most comfortable with PDA:
1. Honolulu, HI
2. Pittsburgh, PA
3. Lexington, KY
4. Charleston, WV
5. New York, NY
6. Fresno, CA
7. Waco, TX
8. Cedar Rapids, IA
9. Syracuse, NY
10. Des Moines, IA

Honestly, I found the above list surprising! I thought that there would be more known cities on this list. I’m not saying that these cities are less popular but reading this list shocked me because I guessed at least 3 cities that I thought would be on this list and none made it.

The top 10 cities least comfortable with PDA:
91. Reno, NV
92. Las Vegas. NV
93. Seattle, WA
94. Orlando, FL
95. Miami, FL
96. Phoenix, AZ
97. Denver, CO
98. Tampa, FL
99. West Palm Beach, FL
100. Ft. Meyers

Again, this list was also surprising! Even though Florida is such a beach state with a good majority of people showing their skin with their teeny bikinis or their short swim trunks, they have 5 cities in Florida alone (shocker! What?!) ranked in the top 10 cities disliking PDA. Blew my mind…

This honestly turned my mind upside down. I did not think I’d be so off with my guesses but I was entirely off… do you have any theories why these cities ended up on their respective lists? I have no clue…
