    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...

    I have an amazing boyfriend named Michael,

    who is a year older than me. During the summer, we went to the beach for a small date. As we were walking down the boardwalk, Michael reached over and grabbed my hand. At first, I was surprised, but then I liked it. I didn't know he was a fan of PDA. We've been dating for a...

    One time I was out with a friend

    and he said out of nowhere "can we finger cuddle?" And he just started holding my hand. That's my favorite phrase now :) ;* it's soooo cute :D

    There is something so special about holding

    hands with someone you care about. i don't know why but it makes you feel so cared for and protected.  It is a sweet and simple gesture and one that can mean the world.

    My first girlfriend and I always held hands

    last summer. Whenever the officers weren't looking during transport and transit we'd hold hands and talk to one another. It was a nice feeling having someone next to you who likes you enough to do that

    I was the hand holder at the blood drive :) It

    wasn't weird at all! But one of my guy friends recently told me that he's been crushing on me for a while so when he asked for my hand, I was hesitant. I mean it was my job to be supportive so I did and it wasn't bad at all. I just hope he doesn't take it the wrong way.

    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.

    It may seem old but one of the most comforting

    things for me is holding hands. I like how you feel directly connected to me, how you're gonna care for me with all that freely given love. It makes me feel loved and critically alive.

    such a small gesture

    but so much connection. to hold hands with the right person feeling their thumb carressing the back of your hand is perfect. Getting caught taking little peeks at each other. so much in that small gesture. I miss it.
