    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.

    Walking side by side,

    I always anticipate that moment when I feel her little hand slide into mine, because it invariably always does. I teach her how a good hand-holding works, that both people have to make an effort, and if neither person is holding on tight enough, it will break and fall apart...

    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

    When my boyfriend and I got to the store we

    hold hands when we're walking in. I like it a lot because everyone can see we're together. And I like it because it means that he wants more physical contact.

    The moment I grab her hand to walk together I

    feel something I cannot explain going through my body. While we are walking hand in hand I feel we are a world within the world. I cannot believe there were times in my life I thought a couple walking hand in hand was cheesy. How embittered I must have been then!

    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.

    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

    I've always loved seeing those couple

    that would hold hands and swing their arms as they walked together. I've always wanted to be one of those really cute couples.

    Her Hands Were Always So Soft...

    Her hands were always so soft. Ally and I were never a "couple" and never dated officially, but we spent a lot of time together for about a month exploring that possibility. If you've read my previous stories about her ( EP Link , EP Link ) then you know she came up to me...

    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 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.

    More than ever before,

    I miss holding hands...It's such a special, wonderful feeling ...*sigh* The last time that happened, we went on a long walk together and we held hands. It was a while ago... but I can still feel how it felt and see the image we formed... heart-knowing memory stored.

    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.

    The most innocent and basic connection of

    At dinner Saturday night,

    Jean-Marc took my hand as we walked into the restaurant, since I was wearing a long black lace dress, it was quite sweet of him. I liked it, especially since we were dining with one of the other directors and his wife!

    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.
