1/ Holding your hand allows you to support yourself
There are no more scenes in films where a couple, faced with dangers and difficulties, holds hands and faces. Holding hands is the perfect way to provide each other with support, comfort and well-being. And who doesn’t need that when things go wrong?
2/ Holding your hand keeps you connected (why you should hold hands more often)
Holding hands is a great way to tell yourself that you are together, present for each other, no matter what happens, wherever you are. You are united, and nothing can separate you… Especially when you walk together in the middle of the crowd!
3/ This allows you to maintain your complicity
In other words, your secret language of couple! Two individuals in a couple quickly learn, consciously or unconsciously, to communicate non-verbally. Over time, you know and recognize the signs that indicate your partner’s states. Holding your hand is one of them! You can say many things to yourself through this simple contact: tighten tenderly to say that you are there for the other, tighten harder to say that you are scared/stressed/upset, squeeze briefly to signal that it’s time to leave, or to flirt… Do not hesitate to use these signals!
4/ Holding your hand makes you feel closer (why you should hold hands more often)
This simple gesture is fraught with meaning. So full of meaning that we still see a lot of elderly couples doing it. Holding your hand allows you to enrich your relationship, whether it lasts for 1 month, or 20 years! And to do this, you don’t even need to look at yourself (especially in the car for example). A physical gesture filled with affection, love and tenderness.
5/ This reduces your stress and activates romantic moment
Your anxiety, and your irritation! It’s almost magical. You are in all your states, and feel that you are going to explode, or crack. When suddenly, your darling takes your hand, and squeezes it for a long time in the hollow of his… And suddenly, all your worries subside, your panic subsides… The magic of love at work! No need for words, this simple gesture can alleviate anxieties as quickly as they have occurred.
6/ Holding hands helps you cope with pain (why you should hold hands more often)
It is a very human reflex: that of taking and shaking hands with your darling when you are suffering. Take, for example, women during childbirth. Of course, you do not remove the pain (it would be too beautiful), but it can help you to feel it less! In fact, as a couple, you become real superheroes! A hand will never replace a good doctor, but in case of small bobos, combined with a magic kiss, it is an excellent remedy!
7/ It’s a great way to say “I love you” without having to talk (why you should hold hands more often)
This may seem like an insignificant gesture to you, but on the contrary it is fraught with meaning. And as proof, who has never felt incredibly well while his/her darling came to grab his/her hand? This is one of the precious things that you need to preserve within your relationship. Body language says a lot about your feelings, so (and especially if you have trouble expressing it verbally) show your love for your partner by shaking hands tenderly and regularly!!
And you, do you hold your hand and your darling enough?
