    I love it. I met my wife almost 50 years ago

    but I still remember that thrill the first time I dared to hold her hand. And it became our trademark, we always walk holding hands. I like her soft touch and thin fingers between mine.

    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 gives me the good kind of butterflies just

    thinking about holding the right persons hands. Imagining that you and someone you really care about has your hands grasping one another. Your fingers locked and weaved around eachother. Like puzzle pieces that fit together to make the perfect picture <3

    Fingers intertwined holding on to one another

    is intimate and sometimes means more to me than and kiss or hug. For that moment in time you are inseperable. You have captured one anothers attention and affection. You are joined but in a way of security and peacefulness. I want to sit, look into your eyes with hands held...

    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...

    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.
