I Am Old Fashioned At Heart

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 656 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...

    Oh Gosh!!!

    I don't even know where to start about how old fashioned I am. Firstly, I like manners and traditional English and am somewhat proper in speech. I smile and say hello to my neighboroughs.  I love paper books and handwritten cards and letters.  I keep handwritten journals...

    The Good Old Days

    Is it just a thing of the past? Do men still show up at their lady's house with a bouquet of roses? Do they still hold the car door open for them? Why should it be a shock if someone is celebate until marriage? Im old fashioned like my mother, otherwise id probably have a...

    From Scratch

    You could describe my family as being old fashioned. This doesn't mean we shun technology. My brother is an engineer and Daddy is an architect and they use computers for everything. I love having a computer myself and other modern luxuries. I know my mom and I would find it hard...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...
