I Think Holding Hands Is Romantic

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,861 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...

    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.

    Yes, in all scenarios.

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

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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

    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

    Exchanging germs are always romantic.

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

    The wife and I were on vacation.

    Just strolling and window shopping. A young lady stopped my wife and said how nice it is to see an older couple still holding hands and walking. I was feeling proud because of how romantic I am. Then my wife said'Yes it's great that he still holds my hand, and it keeps him from...

    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...

    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...

    I don't understand how anyone can dislike hand

    holding. It's one of the most romantic, yet the most simple things to do.

    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. :)
