I still remember the first time I was holding hand with my husband. It's been years ago, but the memory is still fresh like it just happened yesterday. I always think that holding hand is more inmitate than kissing and perhaps other PDAs. And I am not the only one said that, Dalton Conley, a professor and chairman of the department of sociology at New York University has agreed with me, “Hand-holding is the one aspect that’s not been affected by the sexual revolution,” said “It’s less about sex than about a public demonstration about coupledom.”
Hand-holding is a very speical and innocent moment between couples -
To hold someone’s hand is to offer them affection, protection or comfort. It is a way to communicate that you are off the market. Practically speaking, it is an efficient way to squeeze through a crowd without losing your partner. People do it during vigils, marches, weddings and funerals.

And different ways of holding your parterner has special meaning too, if you are interested to de-code the meaning, click here.
There are so many ways to show your partner your love and care, of course, holding hand is one of them. Writing them a letter/card, flying her a paper airplane to tell that person you miss him/her, or stuffing a special note in a fortune cookie to suprise her/him...
