Well the response to that last post is great. It has been quite helpful. Natalie’s comment was a great response to them all. Since we all seem to be O.K. with it, why isn’t there more of it? Eric gave me a hug today in response to my post, that brightened my day, and I suppose Adam had me rest my head in his bossom qualifies also. Kevin also posed an interesting question about whether or not I, or anyone else, would do that if they had a significant other of their own. I honestly hadn’t even considered that because I hadn’t considered any female conceeding to being in that situation with me in the near future; however, I had thought and asked others outside of xanga how they would feel if they saw their significant other holding arms or receiving a kiss with someone of the opposite sex; this situation I figured I’d come across more often. The response was pretty much that it all depends on the intentions of the other. I will agree with that, and I understand that, but hopefully if we start small, holding arms and such won’t become such taboo and a means of flirting, but rather friendship, like every other country than this place.
When Brittany came to homecoming with me, we held hands, interlocked fingers even, but I knew there was nothing between us. And when she came to visit one time before that, we walked around the neighbourhood here with our arms interlocked, just as friends. Though at that time I was, admittedly, hoping for more. When I was in the Philippines both native girls and guys held hands. Unfortunately I have not been to Europe to witness their customs first hand, But I do watch T.V., and the T.V. tells us everything we know. So I know the French do that thing where they kiss both cheeks, and they kiss hands of females when they first meet them all romantic like. And all the other European countries are more physical than we are here.
Other subject to address is that of hand-shakes. But that takes more demonstration. I personally though, don’t like to shake females hands the same as guys hands.
Well there was more I had to talk about other than that, but I’m not sure what is was. Bring back chivalry, lets start a revolution!
