Holding Hands

April 21, 2009

Recently, a friend of mine broke the awkward barrier and held hands with a mutual friend, and it made me think back to that first hand holding moment. The uneasiness right before, the feeling of nervousness during, and the “what the heck were we waiting for?” sensation from there going forward.

Boys and girls are odd creatures, and we’re all at fault. We play the game of: I’m not interested, ok maybe a little, but not too much, but maybe I should show a bit more. It’s a back and forth chess match until, finally, one side says “screw this, I’m going in for the kill!” And more than likely, it’s the boy that has to take action ain’t it?

Why is that?

My theory is that you women don’t want to come off as “easy” or the aggressor. True?

And what’s up with the chicken boys who never make the moves? I still blame it on the girl. That’s right! They don’t drop da hints enough or give the right signs for us tigers to be able to pounce. LOL!

And then there’s the opposite side of the spectrum. The flirty broads or the playa-wannabe donkeys who hold hands with just about anyone and everyone they can get their grubby paws on. They don’t even wait for da signs and just chanceum! Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Not even sure which is worse. :

So what’s the moral of the story?

Shy ladies (hAAaaaaay!), if you want us boys to hold your hands, hollla.
Shy fellas (ho ho!), if you want to hold a girl’s hand, wait for a sign and just do it.
Flirty broads and playa-wannabes, no comment.

To my friends, who are the subject of this blog, I hope you’re not reading this and if you are, peace on earth, and good will to all. 😛

Talk to me!
* Did this blog make any sense whatsoever? Ahahaha!
* How was your first hand holding experience? And second? And third? And fourth? 😉
* If you are a girl, do you wait for the guy to make the first move? Even if you REALLY like him?
* What kind of hints do you send to show him you’re interested?
* If you’re a guy, at what point do you make a move? Is it a feeling you have or do you need to see some signs first?
* How do you show that you’re interested in her?
* Susan Boyle who? Check out the newest Britain’s Got Talent sensation: 12 year old Shaheen Jafargholi!
