5. Holding Onto One Finger.
When couples hold onto just one finger, it symbolizes their independence, despite being in a relationship. But this does not mean it’s an open relationship, it’s just that these couples value their personal space and independence, and don’t like sacrificing it in the name of love and commitment. Their privacy and individuality matter a lot, and they expect the other person to respect this.
The one-finger hold might also mean that the relationship is going through a sensitive time, and things are a bit fragile between the two partners because one of them wants to go back to being just friends with the other. Some feelings might be there, but it is not as strong as love.
6. Arms Draping Over The Shoulder And Holding Hands.
Suppose you are sitting together on the couch and watching some Netflix, and their arm is draped over your shoulder and you are holding their hand. When you hold hands like this, it shows that both of you want to be as close to each other as you can, and want constant physical touch. You are kind of signaling that you are into this person, and want the world to know it.
Holding each other’s hands like this can also symbolize support and a strong emotional connection between you two.
7. Putting Hands On Top And Bottom.
When you place your hands on top of your partner’s and also on the bottom of their hands, it shows that you are paying full attention to them, and to what they are saying. This way of holding hands also signals a kind of embrace where you are holding on to them with both your hands. This is an extremely intimate way of holding hands, especially emotionally.
This physical skin-to-skin contact leads to a lot of oxytocin in your brain, and makes both of you feel loved, seen, heard, and understood. When you hold hands like this, you are telling each other that you will always be there for them, and at that moment, there’s nothing more important than the relationship you both share.
8. Not Holding Hands.
If both of you avoid holding hands with each other most of the time it means your relationship is not really in a good and happy place. If one of you doesn’t show any interest in holding hands with the other, it might mean they are not that into you. You might be together and in a relationship, but either it’s not progressing, or it has already run its course.
Another reason might also be that when your partner doesn’t seem very keen on holding hands, they are probably feeling shy or just want some space and privacy. This does not necessarily have to be a bad thing, because reserved and introverted people tend to need more space than people who are not introverted. Don’t immediately think the worst and take any rash decisions; maybe they are simply in a funk, and just want some time and space from you.
