I Am Old Fashioned At Heart

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 730 People

    I am not old fashioned in everything.

    I do love technology! When it comes to relationships, I want the man to make the first move. I want him to guide the relationship. I want to trust him so much that I have no problems letting go of the reigns. I am a strong independent single woman, but deep down inside I...

    Always Different

    I'm a old fashion girl. I believe that the man its the head of the house and had every right to enforce his rules for his family. I believe that if his rules are broken he had every right to punish the rule breaker. I also believe that when you get married it is forever. That...

    I like being a lady in public, a chef in the kitchen and a courtesan in the bedroom - my choice. I would gladly have stayed home and pregnant - as long as he could have supported us - my (?) choice. I would like to 'belong' to a man - my choice. I started off writing...

    Can The World We Live In Support It?

    I love the idea of living an "old fashioned" life where bonds with family are the most important in life, concepts like respect, decorum, and modesty were still practiced and believed in, countless hours were spent reading, talking, learning to play an instrument instead of...

    My Old Heart

    I'm a progressive person in many ways. I believe in equality for all, freedom of speech, freedom of choice, and that a woman's body is her own. I consider myself a Moderate, politically speaking. I enjoy modern technology somewhat (hence me on the internet), and I like the modern...

    Old Fashioned Ironing

    It's not that I have reject all modern ways ... but it's just that I am partial to the old fashioned ones! Case in point: My niece's daughter is spending some time with me. This is her second year at Primary School. I had to iron her uniform made from two materials...

    Oh Gosh!!!

    I'm old-fashioned when it comes to how I view

    relationships. I always give my all in a relationship and when I enter a relationship, I'm in it for the long haul - through thick and thin. I don't give up on my partner. Also, I believe it's a man's duty to take care of his lady which means being there for her, supporting...

    The Older I Get..

    the more docile and set in my idealistic ways I become. I never used to believe in the set roles of males and females- heavens no. but the older i get, i notice, that moralistic value is practically and embedded  part of my belief. My mother raised me, and told me to...

    Just read a beautiful article about how things

    were. I could relate to it cause the scenes were pretty similar in the area I lived as well, may be in your surroundings too. And that set me thinking about the new and the old and how different they are. • I refuse to have an internet in my smartphone, which makes it like...

    Given My Age, You'd Expect That!

    By old-fashioned, I really mean that my value system was the general world view in the USA when I was born into it.  You did your best at school to get an education so you could have more choices than your parents had.  You said, "Yes, Sir and Yes, Ma'am" to...

    I Hate This Day and Age.

    Except for computers and cell phones, but if I born back then I would never even know what that crap was, so I wouldn't suffer any.  I would be just as well wearing a bouffant hairstyle with my polka dot dress and flat shoes on, sitting in the diner drinking a milkshake in...

    Always Have Been

    My Interpretation

    When I say I am old fashioned, I mean not that I hate technology (hence the fact that I am on a website!). But rather I admire the integrity of generations before. I am sixteen years of age, and when I see the actions of my peers I am rather shocked and appalled. Many of them...
