… perhaps the men out in blogosphere can explain/clarify something to me:
Is there some strange, unwritten rule that says: holding a girls hand in public isn’t cool? What is it that says, I’ll be lovey dovey in private with you but in public, we can’t be letting on that we’re ‘together’ … ugh. What’s up with that… there are more of you out there than not. Can someone explain this stupid ass rule to me so that I can get it right, once and for all… because its driving me mad. If you like the girl/woman, dating and ya know she likes holding hands while walking about … what’s the issue? Is there something I’m not getting? This double standard is rather off-putting and very much a turn-off… and feels rather degrading, as though one is ashamed to be seen in public with me. While I’m not asking to grasp hands all the time, I don’t get this … I like you in private but not in public… that translates in my head with such an act. Am I wrongly interpreting this? Explain. Please?!
Well… anyhow… as my mind wonders about these moments of utter disgust and shame… I came across this jazzy diddlee /remake of the original “Making Plans for Nigel” ~ XTC … that I actually enjoyed and put a smile on my face… while practicing a little retail therapy in light of such incidents.
