The different ways of holding your partner's hand can reveal much more than you think about the type and status of the couple.

Holding hands is a pleasant habit for many couples in love: it is no coincidence. Several scientific studies have shown, for example, how this simple gesture, public but with deeply intimate connotations, increases the sense of security, is capable of reducing stress and even pain. It is an express declaration of love, sharing, mutual "belonging".




For body language experts, however, the different ways in which one can hold hands reveal nuances typical of that couple. Let's see them together.

1) Hand in hand, with fingers intertwined

It is the typical "position" of the hands shared by two people in love. The intertwining of the fingers reveals a desire for sharing and deep connection, in all aspects of life together. If the grip is strong, however, there may also be a desire for control or stiffness, a little fear.

2) Hold your fingers

Those who propose this method of contact are generally in love but are still afraid of really committing to a long-term relationship; or he loves but isn't sure yet that everything will be fine. In short, we are together but without a decisive conviction or the relationship - at the moment - is not so central (compared to other personal goals) but it is still considered an important aspect of one's life.


3) Together, for one finger

Will it be true love? The question is legitimate. The boundaries and the distance, in this type of contact, are very marked. If it is not adopted for a matter of excessive sweating of the hands of one of the two partners, this "position", especially if usual, should lead to reflect on the importance of sharing, closeness and - more generally - on the strength of the relationship in course. Which could be transient.

4) Hold on to your wrists

When one of the two partners holds the other by the wrist, it shows a willingness, more or less conscious, to possess. It's like saying: I want you, I keep you, you are mine or mine. As handcuffs do too, you might think. There could also be the desire to lead the other (and to be led, a little carried away, by those who are "taken").


5) Hand in hand

Peaceful contact, safe sharing, profound relationship; whoever proposes it has confidence in the relationship.

6) No contact between the hands

But what if, on the other hand, he or she does not like to hold the other or the other by the hand, or if he feels embarrassed, induces pretexts, is afraid of being seen? Ahiahiahi. Holding hands also means communicating to the world that one is - in some way - a couple. If one tries to hide it, it will mean something.

Of course, this reading must be contextualized (for example, holding hands during a business meeting, shared with a loved one, would probably not be appropriate) and referring to the normal ways of "holding hands" (not to single specific situations). For everything else, food for thought can be drawn: even hand in hand, they are always useful.
