Why Love and Holding Hands Go Hand-in-Hand?

Swagata Deshmukh - Jun 06, 2024

Holding hands is a common human behaviour that has been practised for centuries. But have you wondered why we love holding hands or the mere tips of our limbs so much?

Holding hands is a common human behaviour that has been practised for centuries and shows no signs of going out of style. It is the act of physically holding someone's hand in an affectionate manner. It can be done between romantic partners, close friends, family members, or between a parent and a child. It is a physical expression of LOVE❣️

There are many ways you can hold hands- interlocking fingers, holding just one finger, palm to palm, holding both hands, etc.- all of them mean different things. Think about it, with just a simple gesture, you can convey a whole bunch of emotion- a deep sense of connection, comfort, and support between two individuals… the list goes on!

If you’ve wondered what is the reason for holding hands, let me break it down for you!

The Joker saying and here we go

Time To Get Physical

Holding hands is a way of communicating non-verbally. Physical touch is an important aspect of human communication, and holding hands is a form of affectionate touch. This form of non-verbal communication is particularly important for couples, as it can help to strengthen their emotional bond and increase feelings of intimacy. And hey, AntiDate is a fun date night card game for two that can help you do more hand-holding.

Holding hands can also serve as a form of social support, especially for kids and teens. When people hold hands, they feel a sense of comfort and security, and this can help to boost their confidence and reduce feelings of loneliness. It's like having a portable, always-available comfort blanket!

From a scientific perspective, there are several reasons why guy want to hold hands.

Let’s Talk Science, Baby!

In addition to its emotional significance, holding hands also has a number of physiological benefits. When two people hold hands during a date night, they release a hormone called oxytocin, which is also known as the "cuddle hormone" or the "love hormone". This hormone is responsible for all those warm and fuzzy feelings you get when you're around someone you love. Oxytocin is associated with feelings of happiness, contentment, and trust, and it has been shown to have a calming effect on the body. This makes holding hands an effective stress reliever and can help to reduce anxiety and depression. So, when you're feeling down and need a quick pick-me-up, all you need to do is grab a loved one's hand, and voila, instant happiness!

But it's not just about making you feel good, there are more reasons why you can love holding hands. It can also help to relieve stress, discomfort, and pain. This is because physical touch triggers the release of endorphins, which are nature's very own pain-relievers. So, if you're feeling a little overwhelmed or just down, use Glow Relaxing massage oil with your partner as an excuse to hold hands and get closer and relaxed. And if you don’t have one, you better get it now as a birthday gift for your wife.

So, when we tell you to reach out and hold your loved one’s hands, it’s also relationship advice from science!

In summary, whether it's between romantic partners, friends, or family, the simple act of holding hands is a powerful tool for expressing love, comfort, and support. So don't be shy, reach out and grab a hand, and enjoy the wonders of the human touch!
