Is it normal to be embarrassed to show afection in public to ur bf
And I don't mean embarrassed as in like I get all shy and blushy like an anime girl. No. I mean... I get anxious, almost uncomfortable. Don't get me wrong; I love my boyfriend to death. He makes me really happy and tbh he's the only one who has ever treated me right in comparison to my exes.
I do not mind hand holding, hugs (as long as they don't get *to* friendly), and when the time is right, a peck on the cheek/lips is okay. But anything more than that, I'm too scared to show, at least in public. (I am super SUPER affectionate when I am alone with him) I feel like everyone is watching me and thinking low of me if I do more than what I listed.
I just feel like I'm a horrible girlfriend. Especially because I know he wants to be super affectionate in public. I saw how he was with his ex, they were all over each other! I also feel horrible since I'm so willing to be so lovey when we're alone but when I'm in public... :/ My boyfriend says that he understands and he KNOWS that I love him. He sees the subtle ways I show afection and he loves it. But I also feel like deep down he wihes I was better at showing affection in public.
But yeah, is this normal for couples? And is there a way to be less scared of being affectionate in public?
