    You know what I love?

    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. :)

    Holding Hands

    not saying anything but holding hands and waliking by the beach or in the woods, is so warm, for me feels wonderful it can turn into anything but it on its own makes me feel very good

    I once was walking with a friend outside our

    apartment complex. There was an argument going on between a dad angry and these group of teens who kept bullying his daughters. I could understand. My mother was just pulling off to work but stayed to watch the fun. Eventually the cops were called as usual. While walking away, I...

    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'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...

    Although It Can Be A Pain.

    I cover a fair few things about myself in my profile, but I think one thing I fail to mention is that I stand at 6'4". Yeah, I'm pretty tall. :P And a lot of girls aren't really so tall, and my ex is no exception (no pun intended lol). I remember we would be walking around town...

    Makes Me Feel So Safe

    I love holding hands with my husband. I still find it romantic even after 18 years. We'll be out walking even just shopping or wherever and we both just automatically reach for each others hand. My husband has the best hands ever so strong and always warm which is a bonus as my...

    Holding hands with a guy is like telling the world he is mine and I am his, for that moment anyway.
