I Like Holding Hands

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 23,153 People

    Two hands tucked in each other,

    in a light clasp. The warmth of the cupped palms with fingers laced together, resonating a most amazing sense of togetherness. Two figures moving in sync. It's a most wonderful feeling. I miss it very much.

    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...

    The warmth of human touch,

    the real feel of tender and loving vibrations coming and going- nothing can replace that ... not even the most sophisticated IT system or application.

    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

    Safety......I always feel safe

    when I'm holding my Samantha's hand.... ....and loved.....and cherished....and respected. She's got such lovely hands; soft and smooth, and - this might sound silly - but I like the way our hands look together.... :-) Karen x

    I just do. I can't walk with someone without

    holding his or her hands. I feel secured and not alone and I just love people who'll hold my hand even though they're kinda sweaty :/

    Holding Hands Evokes Nostalgia In Me For More Innocent Times

    I've only held hands with boys

    but not by choice. I think I only have two times. 1st time it was as a kid and I was walking this little boy to his class. The 2nd time was as a teen during prayer with this guy. Just curious if any guys had fond memories holding hands with boys?

    2010 when I got together with my man,

    he asked if he could hold my hand as we walked to his Aunts house to meet her. It was so cute and I cherish that moment forever.

    Has anyone else notice

    that sometimes when you hold a boy/girls hand and your holding their hand and you realize that their not holding back? Like you fingers are intertwined and all but you feel like they put no effort into the holding of your hand, it's like they have no grip on your hand lol

    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.

    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.

    Perhaps the Purest Form of Love...

    It makes me feel as if he's sending me a silent

    "I love you." The connection makes my heart flutter. I know he has held my hand nearly every day for the past nine years, but I still can't help but feel extra special when he gives my hand a squeeze.

    there's something magical about the spark I feel

    when his fingers touch mine. the reassuring squeeze he gives me when he notices I'm nervous. or the way he delicately rubs my hand when he notices I'm upset. so many emotions portrayed in such a small act.

    I held his hand on Saturday.

    We sat on the couch and I asked if I could hold his hand and he let out his hand to search for mine. We were sitting like that for minutes. It was nice, I liked it. I hope he liked it too and that he is thinking about my hand in his.
