Top 10 Old School Things That Need to Come Back
#10 Reading books. Physical books You know, the ones with hardcovers or those bound in paperback. Reading on a NOOK or Kindle will never beat the sensory satisfaction of leafing through a real book.
#9 Wrapping presents. Like with tape and wrapping paper Rather than throwing a gift into a bag and covering it with thin paper, this old-fashioned way of concealing presents takes a lot more time; therefore, it communicates a lot more thought. This idea is what counts so, the more ways you can show it, the better.
#8 Drive-in movies Sure there may be a showing (or two or three) over the summer, but establishments where one can go to enjoy a moving picture year-round need to be made. They are great reasons to have a picnic and, if one doesn't like being shushed, they can talk freely in the privacy of their car.
#7 Holding doors Not like the action is an obligation. Don't pass the door along, make the other person a priority. Jump out in front of them and swing the door wide open so that their entire being may pass through before yours.
#6 Talk. Just talk And make sure your phone is absent from the conversation. Leave the device in your backpack or (gasp) your car. Make the person in front of you your priority. Pay attention to them and talk about anything and everything. Sandwiches. Bushes. Silence. Everything.
#5 Handwritten letters Whether you are composing a love letter, have a pen pal, or wish to express gratitude, a handwritten note is the way to go. Not only does this thought filled gift show your devotion, but a collection of them would also be an exceptional memento to read through years later.
#4 Late night drives for nothing. Long, aimless walks. Bike rides Explore. Turn down that road you pass every day, just to see where it goes. Stroll along the well-known streets of your neighborhood because you can. Go with your friends. Peddle to your local grocery store. Buy a treat, sit on the curb, and enjoy.
#3 Watching the sunrise/sunset and star gazing There is a certain serenity in watching celestial bodies that one can not experience any other way. Waking up early or staying attentive longer is a small price to pay for the intimacy one could share with fellow gazers. Put away your electronic devices, go outside, and silently observe the natural beauty around you.
#2 Flowers and chocolates Or just tokens of affection in general. Words are powerful but limited. Showing your appreciation for someone goes a very long way, even if it is just a small compliment every once in a while or giving them something you know they like. An item doesn't have to be expensive (free or handmade gifts are great!) It's the thought that counts.
#1 Ask her dad and then ask her IN PERSON Whether you're preparing a marriage proposal or anticipating a first date, gaining permission from her father (or mother or guardian, if her father is not present in her life) is a for sure way to win a girl's heart. This action proves that you care about her to the point that even a potentially threatening authority figure won't scare you away.
