I Love Holding Hands

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,678 People

    Simple pleasure. But there's few things

    so innocently endearing and reassuring. And I've not a stunted with a male bravado great enough to refuse to be seen doing it in public or in front of friends. Grow up!

    Makes me feel loved and secure.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    It Just Feels And Seems Nice

    Holding hands with a special someone feels and seems nice. You are physically connected. You know they are there even though you are having a conversation. If you are in public, so what? This isn't lewd or offensive. We care for each other and love to touch. (Sorry for...

    I tried to hold hands with a cactus arm

    but it stabbed me so I set it on fire and it got angry and the Nature Spirit crashed my car into a fascist.

    Its The Little Things

    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...

    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.

    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

    folds over my hand. His fingers lace with mine, palms kissing. I can feel the fast thud of his heart through this single touch." - Sophie Jordan

    It brings a feeling of closeness

    and security, it's almost like the person is saying to you, "I've got you, you're safe and everything is going to be alright." But holding hands isn't quite as enjoyable when they are sweaty and clammy hands...

    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...

    I've only held hands once

    and I was in the sixth grade and it was valentines day. His hands were cold and bony and it was during a movie at school. Not the best experience but I still liked it. ^ ^

    since I was 15. That's ten years. I still get butterfly's from that crazy dude, love him to the moon and back. Holding hands is my favorite. So old fashioned.

    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...

    Touch is a precious gift.

    It is unfortunate we do not use it more. Holding hands conveys intimacy and closeness.
