It shows appreciation

It’s one thing hearing that you’re appreciated and another seeing it. Publicly showing that you love and care for your partner screams  ‘I appreciate you’ and you’re not shy to do it front of the masses.

It creates a deeper connection

Going out in public following an argument can be awkward and sometimes you can’t hide it from people. Getting into a routine of holding hands regardless of whether you fought or not will make you feel loved even during the hardest of times.

It’s good for the kids

If you have kids with your partner, it’s always a good idea to set a good example for them regarding anything that has to do with love. Your kids will grow up not being afraid to give and receive love because they saw you as parents doing and embracing it.

It’s validating

Some might probably argue that one doesn’t need any form of validation if you know where you stand with your partner but we disagree. No matter how long you’ve been with a person, you can never get enough of being shown random acts of love loved, and doing it in public, is the cherry on top.

It shows commitment

It’s no secret that being constantly assured of your  partners love is great for building and maintaining your confidence in your relationship. For the mere fact that you partner isn’t shy to give you a random peck on the cheek and don’t really care what people say speaks volumes.
