I Think Men Should Start Kissing Womens Hands Again

    A Lovely Gesture ...

    A male friend of mine from some years ago used to do this.  He is a very flamboyant character, fancies himself as a bit of a Lord Byron I'd say ... definitely mad, bad and dangerous to know.  One of those very charming young men!The first time he kissed my hand I was so...

    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!

    How To React When They Kiss Your Hand?

    I have only experienced my hand kissed a few times. Once with my ex-boyfriend and it was nice and soft. Second time was a random guy who danced with me at a party and I did not even know his name (it was a masquerade ball so I did not even see behind the mask- although later I...

    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...

    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

    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 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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
