Is it lack of affection or just common public courtesy when your gf refuses to hold your hand in public

She says people will be offended by seeing us hold hands

Report as

It not offensive, she either doesn't want to be seen holding hands or she doesn't want to hold hands with you.

Are you a girl?

If not then she's prolly embarrassed to be seen with you in that way.

I think she's more of shy judging by the her opinion, & she would display affection in a more private. Or to make a long story short, she actually finds doing that where everyone can see to be embarrassing

This is a new one. We women usu. like this sort of thing. People holding hands is never offensive to me. I think it's very sweet. But public affection feelings vary from person to person, culture to culture, & you should respect that. But in the US the majority of us are not offended by hand holding. (Unless the hand is not connected to another human being. Then we have a problem, lol.)

You know, once, when I was in high school, there was this guy and his gf showing affection for eahother in public, and my friend (who didnt had a gf, neither we did) said ''hey, stop eating in front of the poor''. Of course, he said it joking, but he had a point. When someone shows off with hsi gf in front of people who are single, it makes them feel like losers. But I also think that she s shy like broken_body said. Well, lket her make up for the affection you dont share publicly by giving affection in private. Maybe you two should be more opened with each other. That way, you know if something is going on. Gby

She thinks it is common courtesy. Some people are hand holders others are not.

It's common courtesy. Why can't you respect your gfs wishes?

She's probably not use to holding hands with a guy in public, her previous relationships probably wasn't that type of guy or she probably don't wanna be seen holding ur hand!!!

Offensive isn't the correct word, she's probably uncomfortable showing her sexuality or doesn't like letting people see you are affectionate. How are things otherwise?
