I Think Men Should Start Kissing Womens Hands Again

I know not all women would like it, but I would 495 People

    It Isn't Me

    I have my own ways, my own gestures and this just isn't one of them. I don't go around touching others, and I don't let others just go around touching me. I will give a handshake at least and look you straight in the eyes as I do. My grip won't hurt, but it won't be soft either...

    It Happened Unexpectedly

    While on a road trip I was introduced to a European gentleman who worked at the Mansion where I stayed. The lady in charge and I had become good friends and I loved having a conversation with her. It was a lovely place to stay, elegant, fabulous grounds, and gracious people. A...

    "what Have We Done To Deserve This?" Is What I Asked Of Myself!

    I was leaving the post office, on a day not too long ago, when a man, with a smile of friendliness and good will - before me, opened the door for me to pass...as I did, and so grateful that "here was a gentleman in these dark ages" I began to thank him. And yet to my surprise, he...

    I Have Had My Hand Kissed

    I went to an event with a friend.  Since she knew everybody already, she took me around, making introductions.One of the gentlemen took the hand I gave him to shake, bowed over it, and kissed it!  Rarely have I been more surprised by a turn of human behavior.It was elegantly...

    It Happened To Me :)

    Yeah it happened to me last night. It was really sweet. We were saying good-bye and instead of kissing me on the lips, which I wasn't ready for yet, he took my hand and kissed it. I was so not expecting it, but it was really nice. So I am definitely for it

    Call Me Old Fashioned...

    Ok call me old fashioned, but I think it is chivalrous when a man kisses the hand of a woman upon introduction, especially if he is attracted to the women.  It adds something to the attraction, it is romantic and very sweet.  Of course since men don't do this kind of thing I am...

    Absolutely!

    I love it when a man kisses my hand...as infrequent as it is...but when it does happen...it's hard to explain, it just makes me feel appreciated, ...like a lady....respected....it's an old fashioned gesture, but it's a good one, and definetly men.....start doing it again!

    It Was Love At First Kiss

    It is indeed how I met my wife in 1994 my friend introduced me to her - they were old school friends I took her hand gently...and kissed her hand lovingly - looked into her eyes and said "hello" At that time I was seeing a girl already so nothing more came of that greeting... 6...

    I'm at the age to remember such a time but I do not know how such a practice would be received now days. What do you women think about this?

    Symbolic

    There are some great things that have come out of our more modern views. This includes relationships. We should change and grow as people. However, there are many things we should not loose. I think it is a good idea to mix in a little of the past. This is one of those things I...

    Why Not!

    This romantic gesture has been around for this long and has been proven to help bring back true intimacy into our society as well as set a great mood for the whole time you and your partner are together

    It's A Sign Of Appreciation

    I don't know about the Western society, but it's something ordinary over here. Like, even when I was a kid, and to this day, I still kiss my moms hand. It's a sign of respect, appreciation, and love. And I don't mean the way you generally see in movies neccesarily, like, you...

    Actually, I DON'T want to use that old greeting of men kissing the back of ALL womens' hands. A handshake will do for me, thanks. But from that "special man", hubby, lover, ect, I think it's endearing! Or from the occational rogue, that does it to annoy other men, it can be sexy...

    Sweet, Polite And Respectful!

    I think that gesture is the sweetest and most polite show of affection. Instead of pouncing onto a woman's lips and making out in public all the time, this gesture shows that a man is still in control of his urges, his love and respect for the one he loves. I would respect this...

    It's So Sensual

    The first time I actually kissed a girl in a romantic way was on her hand when about 11 or 12. We were in school re-enacting some play out of a book, and in the scene, I (as the male lead) walked up to this girl, looked her in the eyes, slowly took her hand and planted a soft...

    To Be Kissed

    To be kissed on the hand by any man is the greatest compliment any woman can receive. Even as he reaches for your hand and lifts it to him you feel flutters and often blush. For you know you have met a gentleman and are overcome with the moment. As I became a more mature woman I...
