So I'm finally going back to school next week and I'm so excited!
Regulations will be different for COVID-19, so there'll be more masks and stuff too, which is completely understandable. I'm super psyched because my boyfriend will be there at the end of next week. It's been so long since I've seen him in person. We're both so excited to see each other!
The thing is, teachers are being more strict, saying 'no hugging, no kissing at school', etc. Like, my boyfriend and I are very cautious with our PDA - last term we held hands and stuff and kissed a few times in public but because of covid we normally just do that on our dates when no one's around. And we make sure we're both tested negative for covid and stuff. But the school can't just expect me not to make out with/touch/kiss my boyfriend who I haven't seen in four months. The school wants kids to have a good mental health, right? That's a priority, and why schools are open in the first place. I don't want to be disrespectful at school, because I'm a good student and I try not to have too much 'inappropriate' behavior, especially during the pandemic. But I do want to be able to touch my boyfriend!
What are some ways where he and I can be respectful with our public displays of affection, yet be able to touch each other at school? (We can go on dates and stuff after school but sometimes we just want to act like a couple in public. Like, not making out super passionately, but little things, like him playing with my hair or us hugging briefly. Do you think those sorts of things respectful enough?)
