Men, do you kiss girls on the hand anymore?

I love that. Has it died? I am single, so no boyfriend, but I would love to be on a date & have a man kiss my hand. ;-)

So do you do this? Would you? Or no way?

Don't be shy. ;-)

Updates:
So I see it's not totally dead, lol. ;-) Maybe I'm just a bit old fashioned. Ha. Or old? :-D

  • A handshake first, a hug next, followed by a kiss on the hand to imply true attraction. The kiss on the hand is my signal that I wish to court her, not just date her casually.

    A kiss on the hand will come before a kiss on the cheek. The kiss on the cheek will happen before a kiss on the lips.

    Yes, miss, there are still gentlemen out here. Yes, there are gentlemen for gentlewomen.

  • I love being old-fashioned when it comes to romance! romance now is just like buying drugs sh*tty, specially in age 20 area.

    but yes I would kiss a girl hands on a date :)

    I kiss my sisters hands and mom's and I'm not afraid to kiss a strangers hands!

  • It's some peculiar thing I do. I only kiss the hand when I'm driving. I reach for her hand, flip it to the knuckle side, and kiss.

    I'd be too shy to kiss a girl on the hand like Thor did in the movie. That's a bit too old fashion, even for me.

  • when I was younger (in grade school) I tried to kiss a girls hand that I had a crush on, but she hit me in the face and I started crying...the fact that she didn't like me hurt more than the hit

    so I don't know if I would today, LOL. I'm kinda tramatized

  • I have done and still do this on certain occasions:

    1) If I know the lady well. I often greet close female acquaintances in this manner, and it just adds an overall atmosphere of respect to the meeting. Together with its obligatory bow, it seems to communicate "I admire your beauty and acknowledge your higher status; however, I am not presumptuous of a committed romantic relationship". Also, it indicates that the gentleman respects the lady's personal space.

    I have found that it is a gesture that requires some degree of skill to perform correctly. The bow should be graceful and not abrupt. The touch on the lady's hand and / or fingers should be a very light one, as if handling a fine jewel.

    2) If the lady I am meeting / being introduced to extends her hand in such a manner ( palm downward ). I also enjoy the smile and light giggle following a hand kiss - this is the reaction I have received most often upon such introductions.

  • Women, do you cook for your man anymore?

    do you clean the house for your man anymore?

    do you stay virgins for your man anymore?

    do you keep classy anymore?

    these are all old gender roles, no one should kiss anyone's hand

    • I cook, clean and give my boyfriend sex whenever he wants so don't judge ALL women :p might be I'm mexican so yeah :p

    • Show All
    • Kissing a hand isn't a sign of submission or respect or anything. It's a sign of love and affection. She's not asking if guys bow down and kiss hands and praise their women. She's asking if guys do adorable little things like that.

      It's not about gender roles it's about how you show affection for your partner. Which, according to you, is reserved for the 1920s. No girl is going to want you if you don't show her you care for her, kissing her hand is just one of many, many ways to do that.

    • Haha, wish we could like people's comments. Zombiefood, I couldn't agree more with what you said. :D

  • no I'm not her bitch

  • It's not something I do out in public. I'd say it more of something that happens in the bedroom along with a lot of other spots on the body.

  • My ex used to do it sometimes when he'd hold my hand. Like kiss my hand or fingers. But that didn't last long, lol. About halfway through our relationship, I was getting by on like bare-minimum 'everyday' kind of affection, outside of our usual hug and kiss goodbye, and leading up to sex and whatnot. -_- Which generally did not include cute things like that anymore.

  • My boyfriend does it all the time. If we're holding hands or hugging or something he'll just take my hand and press a kiss to my knuckles or something like that. But, then again, we're really cutesy, lovey-dovey and such so it's just standard protocol. He also lifts me over puddles, hahaha.
