    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 believe that holding hands with your partner

    is almost important as having sex, it creates a constant and true bond between two people.

    Evening Stroll

    A month ago my daughter and I were on a cruise ship. One evening, my daughter (13-yr old 5' 4" tall) and I were walking hand in hand taking a leisurely stroll enjoying the scenery on one of the upper decks. We were both hugging each other and leaned over to give one another a...

    I haven't forgotten That I am just one person,

    That I am but one voice Attempting to stand out From the crowd. I remember That I have fallen Among the laughter That surrounds me, and that sometimes It gets too loud. I know That I can't sit here And expect my silence To evoke change Without reason. I can see That I don't...

    One of life's simple

    It would be so nice to be able to feel a gentle

    hand holding mine and to rest in the peaceful stillness of that.

    and would hold hands on our walks at break. I miss that.

    Holding Hands Evokes Nostalgia In Me For More Innocent Times

    my favourite experience holding someone's hand was at the age of twelve, on a hill with an amazing view, with a boy i rather liked. he climbed down a bank and i followed and slipped. he put out his hand to help me up, and i took it. and then we didn't let go, and went for a...

    So I went on a first date not too long ago

    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.

    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.

    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...

    The most innocent and basic connection of

    intimacy between two people. I like the feeling of having my hands around the girl I am proud to be with and a feeling of security, holding her small hands in my strong big hands. Sometimes if it is just right, holding hands, you can feel your hearts pump with excitement and...

    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

    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...

    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...

    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!

    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...
