I’ve never understood why people hold hands. I see many couples holding hands in public places. To me, it’s a signal that the person is saying, “Hey look at me, I’ve got another human as my companion, aren’t you jealous?” I also think these person are insecure and they need to hold that person’s hand because they are low in self confidence or just prideful and showing off. However, my children hold my hand when we are in walking across the interstate. So there’s that.
