1. My girlfriend doesn't like showing affection toward(s) me in public.
2. My girlfriend doesn't like to display affection towards me in public.
3. My girlfriend doesn't like to express affection toward(s) me in public.
...those are my picks...
As a side note, the younger set around here calls that a PDA (Public Display of Affection).
