The Wobbly Bridge between Mars and Venus - Touched...

Martians cannot understand what those darned Venetians want from them when it comes to intimacy...for heaven's sakes, what's with "When you hold my hand, you hold my heart!" Even doctors dont hold hearts for crying out loud! Venetians attach too much importance to holding hands. They're crummy and sweaty when the weather is hot and when it's cold, it makes better sense to keep them stuffed in pockets. And what's with holding hands while at the movies? How the heck do you eat pop-corn then?
Venetians cannot understand why Martians can't hold hands...it's such a simple yet such a meaningful gesture. Why do they choose to slip their arms around the waist instead? Even in public? It is reassuring to have someone hold hands and bring comfort with their presence. Why is pop-corn more important than us? It's simple isn't it? "When you hold my hand, you hold my heart!"

Trouble is, all through our childhood, guys are taught they oughta respect women and almost all lessons are intended at developing a certain degree of reverance for them. Sadly, when they do come close to women, they respect them too much...or emboldened by the show of trust, respect them too little. Girls attach a lot of importance to touch...the right kind of touch. They need to be pampered but not to the extent of being molested. Reassuring touches go a long way in building up the relationship. Touch her too much and she will run away...don't touch her at all and she will be pushed away...
Guys, good luck finding the balance...girls, good luck with keeping it!

lol...it's always tht way for us girls...at times we give too much importance to touch and small gestures. sometimes just a word or a smile from you guys is enough to make our day!

I know...which is how this post came about!
It's not just smiles or the words, most often, it's the eyes that do the trick!

I guess 'the smiles and words of the eyes' would be a better articulation!
