    During 8th grade, I had a crush on a boy

    who had the sweetest soul and in 9th grade we started dating. He was my first boyfriend, he made me nervous, I would stutter every single time I tried to start a conversation. Our 3 month long relationship consisted of shy stares, warm hugs, and intense mutual feelings. And...

    Especially when he does

    that strokey thumb thing like how can my heart not melt? I love when they reach for my hand while we're sleeping. It's the little things like that that remind me how lucky I am.

    I loved holding hands with my lover

    before I divorced him. I sure miss that closeness because I am not dating currently. I love holding hands with my own kids when we go for a walk.

    Perhaps the Purest Form of Love...

    The gesture of holding hands has meant different things to me throughout my life.  As a child, it meant I would be safe from errant cars while crossing the street or wouldn't get lost in a crowd.  In middle school, it was an innocent act of love from someone you were...

    "Can anyone explain the thrill of a kiss,

    I think holding hands in public is one of the

    best ways to show someone how much you care about them. It is so adorable to take a stroll and enjoy the beauty of nature, when one hand embraces the other persons hand locking into a soft and gentle hold bringing on unlimited warm smiles. I like this feeling, oh so nice.

    Voices go on speaking around us,

    but we are in our own little world. It's partially because we're tucked in a corner of the cafe, the wooden table forcing us to sit closer, so that we don't get stepped on by passerby. But it's also because you've moved to the seat next to me. I think it's summertime, but...

    where the most I did with the girl was hold hands and poke her nose. No kisses even. I thought it was semi-successful.

    And I understand. I understand

    why people hold hands: I’d always thought it was about possessiveness, saying ‘This is mine’. But it’s about maintaining contact. It is about speaking without words. It is about I want you with me and don’t go.

    In a relationship, there's many gestures.

    In my situation, there's quite a few, being that 20% of the time would be holding hands, 20% butt hugs, 20% hugs, 20% waist hugs, 10% shoulder wraps and the last 10% being no gestures at all xD
