    Makes Me Feel So Safe

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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

    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.

    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.
