I wasn't able to find a previous post of this. If there is feel free to link to it. Women, what does holding your man's hand mean to you, particularly when you're first dating? A girl who I was seeing (it never went anywhere) told me she spoke to her roommates after our first date where I held her hand. She explained that for some girls holding hands is more intimate than kissing. For me holding hands is YES, intimate, but not as much as kissing. It has always been more of a safe first move. If you're dating a girl, trying to hold her hand is a much safer move than trying to kiss her. If she doesn't bite then you can play it off and act like nothing happened, but if you try and kiss her and she doesn't want to then that is an awkward situation that you can't pretend didn't happen. Make sense? What are your thoughts?
