    Connected Hands

    It is romantic gesture when the couple means it genuinely and it doesn't represent only the pose "look at me I have a new girlfriend!" Holding hands must be wonderful.... in your palm and fingers there are so many receptors of touch.... you can feel your loved person...

    The Connection

    I've actually never held someone's hand. I've only dreamed about it many times with girls I really liked. Whatever feeling it was I experienced was simply amazing. I think what I want most is that connection. Similar feelings I've dreamed about when she rests her head on my...

    Miss The Human Connection..

    I long for my husband to reach out and hold my hand. He won't do it. The only time he ever held my hand was after our baby died..we were walking, and for whatever reason, he grabbed my hand and held it for at least 10 min. It meant so much to me. I thought to myself- he does love...

    Love Holding Hands

    I've always heard girls love to hold hands but the last two ex's never did. I love holding hands so I never got the reason I kept finding girls who didn't   and NO I don't have sweaty hands...

    I Miss It

    I miss this. The only times I get this is when drunk friends are leading me somewhere. Once the hand clasps, time freezes for a moment and I get that warm feeling. Then time reverts to normal and I realize that I won't get this for awhile.

    That Girl

    There is a girl whose hands I love to hold. The warm amazing feeling of her skin against mine makes me feel warm, comfortable and happy.

    Touch Me

    I miss the simpleness of just having my hand held.  My boys are "too old" to hold my hand when we cross the street, or go thru a parking lot.  And as much as I love the feeling of my boys hands in mine, that isn't exactly what I'm missing the most...

    I Wanna Hold Your Hand!

    This is a very powerful connection with another human being, I like to think so. :-) There were many MANY times I've been sick in a hospital, hooked to machines, scared. Just my mother holding my hand or a kind nurse, was enough to get me through all of that. I felt safe. I love...

    Hand Held In Black and White

    Oddly enough I really would like to hold hands someone one day as I like that closeness although I'm a bit shy.

    Husband Doesn't Want to Hold Or Touch My Hand

    This Experience caught my attention last night.  I usually stay with the Sexless Marriage Experience, but feel that the lack of affection has eroded my very soul. My husband is not a touchy feeling type of person (his words) We attended a funeral of a dear cousin last week...

    I Want Someone to Hold My Hand

    I am felling so very lonely lately.I wish I had someone in real life to hold my hand, to tell me everything is going to be ok, to kiss me and hug me until i fall asleep. It's very hard to go thru life alone. To be alone all the time. To feel no one gets you. To feel unloved...

    Love It

     I honestly LOVE holding hands. Its definately a real close connection. You can feel the person pulse in your palm if you stay calm, and still. Holding hands always leads to more too. But I think that it should just..start that way. If you want to be close with someone, show...

    I find that lately, a lot of things are

    expected from me. One of the main things being work. My main problem is a lack of motivation to do anything constructive and the tendency to sink back and watch my life tick away. I wish I had someone to hold my hand on the way to my first job interview and someone who can...

    It's Been So Long...

    ... that I almost forget what it feels like. I almost forget her soft touch. The warmth of her hand that fit so easily into mine. I almost can't remember running my thumb along the gentle grooves of her knuckles. The way she used to say it tickled when I would trace my...

    You know, it's kind of stupid,

    bur whenever I imagine what I would want to do first if I one day finally meet the woman I love so badly. And more than anything, I just want to hold her hand and feel her grip tighten around mine. I wonder if this is just another dream.

    Hand In Hand

    I can't tell you how long it's been since I last had my hand held.  It's been years.  Many years.  And that makes me sad because I think hand holding is one of the most intimate things two people can share.  Just as intimate as a kiss, just as important. ...
