Dating holding hands

And there's nothing quite like holding hands to signal that you're a couple.Nick, 23, from Santa Monica, California, explained that holding hands represents a shift from "someone I'm dating" to "someone I plan on indefinitely dating.""When you're holding someone's hand, you're entwining your fingers with theirs, a physical manifestation of an emotional connection," he told One of the most powerful signals humans give each other of affection and interest is touch, said Pamela Regan, psychology professor at California State University, Los Angeles.

He then repeated the shock while the women held a stranger's hand. The results showed less activity in the stress-related areas of the women's brains even while holding a stranger's hand, and a make us less stressed!
