    I miss writing, sending,

    and receiving snail mail. I miss the the woody smell on the adhesive ***** of an envelope and of the back of stamps. I miss inspecting postmark dates and counting the days it took to reach my address. Most of all, I miss unfolding the scented stationery as well as the...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I don't worry much about looking at my phone.

    .. or staying on top of everything virtual and online. I like limiting those things and staying in touch with God and Nature. I like older things, more thrifty things. I'm not a big spender. I don't have the money for it, so that's a good thing, I recon.

    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...

    Sometimes it feels good

    that I am, but then again, I think ppl see me as being outside of the box. Hell, I'll stay outside and gold the world inside and remain the same. I'm not changing for anyone!!! It's just the way I am.

    I chose this to confuse myself. Let me get super old so I don't wonder about it.

    I don't always like change

    and I like how things used to be. Times were simpler and better. I love music from the 60's and 70's and I especially love old cars.

    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...

    Always Have Been

    The music, the way people were, the life values that use to be important. It seems today most people have forgotten what was once important. Life shouldn't be about how much money one can accumulate. Life should be about family, togetherness and being happy with oneself. I...

    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...

    Oh Gosh!!!

    yes i do believe i m old fashioned,

    for me moral values, small things like spending time together, holding hands, admiring old peoples when they express their love and happiness, and when others feel happy because of us, or we are the behind others happiness, and all such things matters alot to me

    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...
