I’m not a very touchy feely person. I don’t normally go out of my way to hug or shake hands, although I do like to cuddle and I really like holding hands. It makes me feel special and safe. It’s very reassuring to have someone hold my hand but it is not something that is common. We hold hands in church and you might see people who are dating doing it, but apart from parents and children, you don’t see it much but it really is a sign of friendship and affection in my mind. To me, hand holding is a way to say that you are important to me and I am here for you. It’s a demonstration of love and connection.
