BTS Reacts - Being Anxious About PDA
Kim Taehyung: He’d be pretty bummed that you aren’t open to public displays of affection. He’s a very loving boyfriend, and wants nothing more than to ravish you in kisses and hugs, but he’d understand that you’ve an anxiety for it. He thinks it’s cute, and it doesn’t matter to him, as long as you’re more accepting of it at home. Taehyung would probably tease you in public a lot, knowing this - he’d walk toward you with arms wide open, ready to receive you if you wanted - but he’d end up putting his hands down and laughing when he sees you about to dash. He assures you after:
“Ah, you know I’m just messing around, I wouldn’t do that to you - but you owe me a big hug when we’re alone!”
Kim Seokjin: Completely understands that you’re not fond of touching or kissing in public, after all, it just means he has more to himself at home, where moments between the both of you would hold more intimacy and meaning. Jin doesn’t need to be physically close to you to show that he loves you - he does it in so many other ways - he makes sure you’re never cold, never hungry, and never sad. He wouldn’t mind the lack of skinship, as long as he knows that you love him too. He cocks his head toward the exit once they’re done shooting their MV, inviting you over his side.
“Let’s go back home, sweetheart. I’ve been wanting to be with you all day.”
Jeon Jungkook: You’ve barred him from laying a hand on you when you’re with company, and that gets him a bit on edge every time he’s with you - because he can’t show you his affections, expect a lot of heated stares from him. He’d wonder when’s the next opportunity that he’d get to be alone with you, so he could just wrap you in his arms completely. While he comprehends your anxiety, he would still be a bit annoyed that you’ve such a problem with him getting close to you, and would constantly tease you by lurching himself coyly toward your body, startling you greatly. He jokes:
“Aish, you’re evil - you know this is torture for me, right? You’re lucky I’m so patient.”
Park Jimin: Jimin would be a fan of light skinship, so when he finds out that you’re against it, it gets him down for awhile. He’d try to hold himself back from running his fingers on yours, resisting the urge to hold your hand. He’d attempt to compensate in other ways, by getting you unexpected gifts and showering you with flirtatious remarks, and basically trying to spend as much time with you as possible by going on casual dates (which is hard for him, because he really wants to hold you close when you go out together). He slides up to you when he notices you getting bored, and you start to blush at how close he is:
“What are you thinking about, jagi? Do you want to go home? I kind of want to… it’s hard to focus on practice when you’re around; I just want to kiss you already.”
Jung Hoseok: Respects your opinion about PDA whole-heartedly. Hoseok would worship the person he’s dating like a temple, there’s no way he would go against your wishes, especially if it upsets you so much. He doesn’t have a qualm with not being able to hold or smooch you in public, but he definitely wants to help you out of that anxiety in the long run. The second you arrive home, he’d be absolutely beaming with passion, sweeping you off your feet and dumping you onto the sofa, crushing the life out of you with his toned arms. He kisses your forehead tenderly and asks:
“Do you still want to head to the movies? We can stay in and watch something, if you want. Your choice, babe.” ( Even though he says that with a straight face, he secretly hopes you’d decide to stay home, so he can smother with even more love! )
Min Yoongi: Honestly doesn’t bother him that you feel that way. He’ll stay close to you without feeling the need to touch you; it’s easy for him to not partake in PDA. However, don’t get him wrong, Yoongi can be very doting in private, holding you tight and caressing your hair, generous with his love - he’d be a man devoted to his partner, openly loving or greatly humble when need be. If you’re ever ready to overcome your anxieties, he’ll be there to support you along the way. You hope your issues aren’t a problem to him, and he gives you a confused face when you tell him so.
“Hm? Why would it be a problem? Just because we don’t kiss or touch in public, doesn’t mean I’d love you any less.”
Kim Namjoon: Will have his days. Namjoon would be absolutely fine with the lack of PDA most of the time, but if he sees you looking particularly nice on other days, he wouldn’t be very happy with the fact that he can’t show the world that you’re his. Rest assured, when the two of you reach home, he’s going to vent his frustrations by drowning you in impassioned kisses. He tries not to focus his attention on you too much, or he’ll cave. He runs over to the wall on the far end of the room and slams his needy hands against its surface, writhing in agony, yelling at you jokingly:
“ARGHHH! Jagiya, you know I love you, I really do - but this is killing me! Why are you so irresistible today?”
I hope I did this react well enough - please enjoy it! <3
