A Romantic At Heart (And Hand)

So I realize that I'm either a prudeish old woman or misplaced from the 1930's, but handholding is maybe one of my favorite things to do. Despite my recent kissing drought, I have a list a mile long of guys I've kissed, but my list of guys I've held hands with? Noticebly shorter. Not that I'm surprised really, because never in my nights out have I made eyes with some hott guy only to go for his hand when the moment was right. Holding someone's hand is a different kind of intimacy from sucking face and generally not the result of too many jack and cokes. I am still completely in love with it and even more than kisses, I tend to remember hands making connections and fitting so well together.

*sigh*

I LOVE holding hands!
My favorite part of any date is when the guy reaches for your hand for the first time. It's just a build up for the kissing later. :)

it was so hot hot...

Recovering overachiever- I know! It's so sweet. I, personally, think it takes balls to grab for someone's hand.

Pop cultured- Haha, that's cute!

Kissing is intimate but holding hands is very innocent and has more emotions attached... not just physical needs... that first time your fingers touch and you tingle with anticipation.... ahhhh to be in love (or at least on your way to being in love)

I love holding hands...I have really small hands, and when a guy with big hands holds mine, it makes me feel protected somehow.

You are SO right. Now you're making me get all day dreamy and wishful now.

Remember the STC episode where Sam falls into the pit because Smith tried to grab her hand? That's my normal reaction, but when you can take a deep breath and let it happen you know you've got something worth, well, holding on too!

BTW, LOVE this blog! Not just because of STC, but because it's great reads!
