I Think Holding Hands Is Romantic

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,615 People

    One of my favorite moments is the first time he

    reaches for my hand. There is an electricity in the initial awkwardness and a beauty in the swimmingly sick feeling from the butterflies in my stomach. His skin on my skin...just our fingers intertwined...makes my palms sweat. I love the nervousness ...it is a gift he has given...

    When I hold hands with him I feel like we are

    the only ones in the room. I feel very happy when we hold hands. I connect with him. When I do it's like telling him something, but not out loud. It's telling him "I love you." or "You are my everything." Once we are holding hands I just can't help looking into those hazel eyes...

    I love holding hands with my boyfriend.

    I notice even that daddy and my step mum hold hands when they're out together.

    In the rain, at night,

    as you walk slowly with a loved one (or a hope to be loved one). Pulling her close...kissing gently, but with passionate intent. That is a wonderful feeling.

    Exchanging germs are always romantic.

    There's holding hands, kissing, sharing the same spoon, same toothbrush, and so many more romantic stuff.

    girl friend those days. Still I remember them.

    The best part of holding hands is the initial

    reach... when you see his hand moving towards yours and there's that moment when you know you'll reach back.

    My hands are large, strong

    and scarred from years of hard use and toil. Yours are small, smooth kind and gentle. Together they encompass our lives and our love. To hold your hand as if it contains my soul.

    Makes Me Feel So Safe

    It's actually one of the things I miss about

    having a relationship. It's so simple but it feels very intimate, much more than it should, at least to me. Just the warmth of another's fingers between mine as we walk or sit, a gentle squeeze, a rub of the palm. So much can be said with so little when one is that close to...

    I've always loved to hold hands with my guy.

    We haven't been together very long (only have known each other for 11 months or so) and we haven't kissed or anything yet...handholding is kind of our way to let others and ourselves know we are together, while not breaking any serious boundaries. Yet...at the same time holding...

    Seeing usually on spring time couples,

    who hold hands or/and kiss is so romantic in my mind. Where I am sincerely very happy for them! Having no gram of envy!- Telling this, because a lot of people do, when single... So I've heard! <3

    Yes, in all scenarios.

    In public at home behind closed doors. It is a great connection to touch wherever you are at.

    I once was walking with a friend outside our

    I absolutely love to walk hand in hand with a

    partner. Especially if he has large hands that envelope my small ones nicely. =)

    When we started dating,

    I didn't like to hold his hand in public not even a quick a kiss, because I was afraid of what people might think of us. I was also scared of my enemies finding out that I wasn't straight. However, things changed when your love for each other grow stronger and stronger. I...

    Holding hands is romantic

    but kissing in public is not romantic to me. That's my opinion. I don't think couples should be making out in the train, bus, or packed areas. There's kids around and some people don't want to watch you stick your tongue down your partner throat.

    It makes me smile like a giddy idiot

    when someone holds my hand....lol. It just gives me a good feeling, maybe a bit of butterflies in the stomach. It is nice, it makes me happy.

    Guys, in case you were wondering - there are

    still women who like to have the guy hold the door open, hold hands while walking and have an occasional meal paid for. It's not because we can't do those things for ourselves; rather, it's a way of showing you care about us.

    Holding hands with a person u love to me is one

    of the strongest bonds that u can show in public it proves that you and your partner are truly one that you are linked and cherish one another that you are not ashamed of the one u love and that you truly care for them and nothing can break u apart

    I really enjoy as he turns me around and pulls me closer to him for kissing and French kissing and touch my body too.

    ...follow me and I'll guide you on an adventure for two, or me and you. That first touch. Feeling your thumb explore mine, gently, tenderly, an indication of your caresses. Our hands palm to palm fingers entwined, fitting together like two halves of the same mould. The cute...

    Seeing elderly couples holding hands. Brings a warm fuzzy smile every time. I don't need to have that love as much as I need to know it exists. :)
