Comments: Watching....

Oh, my, I certainly hope that's not what people think! Because I am one of the ones holding on.

It's because I can't get enough of him and because I want to have that touch, that connection, that warmth that makes you so happy just to be beside, to be next to, to be in that aura of your most important person.

Weird. I'm a walk together or hold hands guy. The whole interlocking arms thing? It makes me feel grasped, and not in a good way.

Different strokes, I guess.

Since the day we met, Henry has always offered his arm, opened doors, and ladies first. We hold hands everywhere too, which probably provokes a lot of "ewww, old people and public affection!" moans from those who see us.
I don't care a fig. :)

As infrequently as I get to see him, when I do, my paramour (who, not to do an old people gross-out contest with LeeAnn, is 27 years older than me) always takes my hand. Everywhere. I love it. Reaches out for me and all. Because he is so much taller than me and takes these great big strides when walking while I try to keep up with him, The Escort Arm thing is not so practical. Maybe I'll grow taller one day and we can work on it. So far, the only thing I manage do do is grow wider instead.

Good Gosh, young man....what next? Will you be opening the door for her. Walking so she's always furthest from the curb when you walk down the sidewalk?
It ain't just a marine thing. Some of us were born in the by-gosh SOUTH, where chivalry once was as natural as breathing. Not to say the North didn't have the capabilities by any means.
Sadly, what we once knew as culture has, for some taken on a negative connotation.
Keep on taking that lady on your arm. Who knows who might be watching and learn a thing or two.

32 years and we still hold hands. I really love it when he offers his arm, I take it and he squeezes my hand up next to his side. "Respect" is an amazing word that many people leave out when they think of "love," but it is an important part of love.

That's funny as hell. The girls and I were in Chattanooga Saturday. Went to the Children's Discovery Museum and stayed at the Marriot across the street from the Aquarium.

Sadly, you don't see that where I am from. *wry grin*

During my grandma's time, yes. But my generation can't escort a woman around to save there lives. I think it's an asian thingie....
