I Hunger

I Hunger

I hunger for our fingers intertwined

I hunger, but not for food

I hunger for your lips on mine

Both pair chapped and slightly wet

Chaste kisses, but kisses nonetheless

I hunger for your hands running ever so gently through my hair

Occasionally getting caught in a tangle

Which sends a small rush of pain up the back of my neck

I hunger for those chocolate colored eyes gazing into mine

I hunger for your touch, no matter how small

The brush of our knees

Your fingertips making circles on my shoulders

Or the back of my neck

I hunger for our fingers intertwined

Holding hands is easier to do than kissing

Because we are not like others

It doesn't matter because we still do it

And we will continue to do it

15 Reasons You Shouldn't Be Afraid To Date The Old-Fashioned Girl

Actually, you should be thrilled.

Most men, especially in today's dating scene, stray away from the "old-fashioned" girls, but other men might actually prefer them. Despite what you may be thinking, dating an old-fashioned kind of gal actually has many perks. Sure, we aren't always up to date on the latest trends and we may be a little quirky, but you'll learn to love us. In fact, just the other day, I asked my boyfriend of almost two years, "Hey, do you think I'm kind of old-fashioned?"

He responded, "Yes and I love it."

Are you contemplating dating an old-fashioned girl and need to know what it'll be like? Are you currently dating one? Are you not quite sure if you're dating one and want to find out? Are you a girl trying to figure out if you're considered "old-fashioned" in today's dating scene?

If you're dating an old-fashioned chick or just really want to know what it would be like to date one, there are 15 indisputable qualities that make old-fashioned ladies stand out from the rest:

1. She will be a fabulous cook.

Waffles in the morning? Sure. Spaghetti for dinner? No prob. Homemade pie for dessert? You got it.

2. She will respect herself.

You definitely won't see her posting revealing photos on Instagram. She's not a sloppy drunk. She doesn't have to be seen by everyone. She will only give her time to those who deserve it. She won't put up with any nonsense.

3. She will respect you.

Your life. Your friends. Your family. Your belongings. Your thoughts. All of it.

4. She will be simplistic.

She doesn't need a big fancy date. She doesn't need fancy gifts.

5. So, the little gestures are the ones that mean the most.

Just flowers and maybe a big smooch.

6. She'll have a cute, weird, kinda vintage wardrobe.

A paradoxical mixture of 1950's housewife and 1970's hippy. Kind of weird, but kind of perfect.

7. She will have high expectations for your relationship.

She will want you to be respectful, hardworking, and committed. But, she won't ask you to be anything she isn't. She'll be respectful, hardworking, and committed, too.

8. She will have the lamest jokes and use the weirdest words.

Nevertheless, she will be fabulous.

9. Family will mean everything to her.

So respect them and love them, too.

10. She doesn't need to be seen by everyone.

Just by you and the ones who matter.

11. She will have a genuine heart.

Compassion will be her thing.

12. She will be introspective.

She will be able to reflect on herself and your relationship with the greatest of ease. She's always thinking of ways she can improve.

13. She will keep her mind busy with healthy habits.

And that helps a healthy relationship blossom.

14. She won't give in to social norms.

She's not a cliché. And you shouldn't treat her like one.

15. She will have fun.

After all, old-fashioned doesn't mean boring.


Ya gotta love us old-fashioned gals.
