18. it is private but...
if we're out to dinner or something, and my best friend and I hold hands walking out of the restuarant or bar people either glare at us or (the guys) drop their jaws at the sight of two girls holding hands. Of course, our guys love the thought/sight of us walking together but it would be nice to be able to hold hands (we never go overboard, no groping or kissing or anything actually 'sexual') without getting a huge reaction from everyone around us. No one could tell by looking that we do anything in private, we're just good enough friends to hold hands. I guess we expect to be judged by those around us but it would be nice not to be. But that would be in a perfect world.
