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 people 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 walking across the interstate. So there’s that.
