    When a man wants to hold my hand I feel special. But right now...nothing can make me feel better than my daughter grabbing my hand to hold it. Brings peace to the sadness & turmoil my heart is feeling...

    A Tether To My Heart

    Holding hands is such a basic interaction but can act as an anchor for the other person. It gives comfort even when your partner's mind is otherwise engaged in something else. For me it says "I may have to look away at something but my heart is still tethered to you." The best...

    Hmmm

    There's something about the hand of a man. The warmth the size the roughness. The way the like to lead. And the way they hold tight like they're never gonna let go. Or the softness of The way they guide their thumb along my hand. Mm mm mm.

    The first time my husband held my hand was

    when we where at the beach in Redondo Beach, California. It was the evening when I turned 18. I had met him in high school when I was 16 and he was 15. I had crush on him and to finally have him hold my hand was just amazing. To know at that moment that he liked me, my young...

    Why It's Too Strange For You??

    Simply I LOVE holding hands! But I don’t know why people think of this as an act limited to love relationships only. I love holding my friends hand, not just holding them but I like to fill the gap of their fingers with mine!! I get people looking at me strangely like I...

    It is a simple thing, really; to have one hand, holding the hand of the ne thy love, as they walk together.  Yet is so special, too. It is a public statement in these times, to be able to in a simple and eloquent way display to the whole world that they are in love with...

    Our Pinky Fingers Linked

    My father always held my hand or took my arm when we walked through public places. It was his way of protecting me and to make sure I was still there. He did it even when I grew up. He still does it now. Even with all the pretentiousness and bitterness in our relationship, more...

    That Connection

    I think a simple gesture like holding hands can mean so much more than is implied. It says I'm here with you, I love you etc. I must admit I miss it

    Something I've never had done to me.

    No one I could say truly cared for me enough to hang out with me and do this. I don't need expensive dinners, I don't need a huge array of flowers Nd honeyed words. I can live without the gifts, and even trips can be held away from me. Reach out and touch my hand, something my...

    Holding Hands

    I love to hold hands with my mate. When we are in the bed watching tv we hold hands. Lately we are having a disconnect and we are not holding hands, kissing or even talking.

    Just Let Me Do This

    It was a surreptitious maneuver I’ll admit, when I reached in to touch him. I wanted to savor the moment, that second when I first traversed that imaginary line that separates two people, their personal space. I touched his…finger.   He let me, in fact he immediately clasped...

    In The Movies
