    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...

    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's the intimacy of it.

    Doesn't matter if your young or old. A sign to the world that the two of you are in your own world.

    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.

    In The Movies

    One of my favorite parts of dating is the first date. You have this idea about the person and they have this idea of you and they're probably skewed a bit (or a whole lot) in the positive direction so you feel so special for winning the chance to spend time with the person you...

    partner grab and hold your hand, no matter if you are out in public or just relaxing on the couch. Holding hands can be great.

    I can say with no doubt that when I hold hands with someone always have a reason and a connection. I know that's only a hand with another hand but if truly give attention is more than this, you represent something with that action and it's not for who see but for you and the...

    Holding Hands- A Summer Story

    Grabbed his hand to catch the tube, didn't let go. Walked hand in hand down the streets, summer sun pouring over us. Playing hand-grabbing games and laughed. Tickled each other's hands and felt all warm and fuzzy. Lay in the grass in the evening, hand against hand, 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...

    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...

    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.

    A Beautiful Simple Gesture

    This simple gesture of two persons touching, interlacing fingers, skin to skin. The feel of the softness of tips of thier hand, the rubbing on the side of a finger and the pure joy of looking up and smiling at your beloved knowing they feel the same.

    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
