There are different kinds of hand-holding, and each one holds a different meaning and gives a glimpse into the kind of relationship you share with each other. So, ready to take a deep dive into this, and know more?
How You Hold Hands With Each Other Reveals A Lot About Your Relationship
1. Interlaced Fingers.
Couples who hold hands by interlocking their fingers have a strong, passionate connection with each other. You are head over heels in love with each other, and even if you have been together for a long time, that passion and excitement haven’t waned, even a little bit with time. Both of you have held on to that excitement from the initial days, and you still have eyes for only each other.
Interlocked fingers symbolize utmost happiness, immense passion, and exceptional romance. However, when you hold hands like this, it is important to make sure that both of you hold each other’s hands firmly because it’s not really a good sign if one of you is holding the other’s hand loosely, or in a very relaxed way.
2. Down-Facing Palm.
If you hold hands with each other like this, it means that your relationship is mostly based on affection, and not passion. You have a happy, romantic, and emotionally healthy relationship, where things might not be red-hot passionate all the time, but there is a strong understanding and love between you two. You know each other inside-out and are always there for each other through thick and thin.
Normally, in this kind of hand-holding, whichever person’s palm faces downward tends to have a more strong and assertive personality, is more decisive, and tends to take more initiative than the other person. But this doesn’t mean they dominate the other person entirely, it’s just that their personalities are different, but the beautiful love is always there.
3. Loosely Gripping Hands.
When you are just starting to know each other, and are in the initial stages of falling in love, you loosely hold each other’s hands like this. When you softly grip each other’s hands, it shows that you are just getting to know each other, by starting a new connection, and there is still a lot of shyness between you two. There’s a certain kind of sweetness and romance, which is cautious and more subtle.
Try to notice who is initiating the hand-holding. The person who is reaching for the other one’s hand first is looking for a physical connection, and sometimes it also signals to others that you are ‘taken’ and ‘off the market’.
4. Lacing Your Arms With Each Other.
Couples normally hold hands like this, when they attend any kind of social and mostly, formal events. This is the ideal way of holding hands whenever you are socializing and mingling with other people at public events because it symbolizes sophistication and elegance.
However, if a couple tends to hold onto each other like this all the time, even outside of social events, then it means that the partner who is always seeking the other’s arm to hold on to is insecure about the relationship or is looking for safety and protection. Holding onto their partner’s arm is like holding to the relationship tightly, and never wanting to let go.
