    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 think holding hands with someone you care about makes you feel even closer to that person. It's 1 of my favorite ways of showing affection.
