There are many ways for partners to hold hands and keep each other close. And they tell you a lot about your relationship. Here are just a few of them.

#1. Interlocked Fingers Hold

This is a very intimate way to hold hands with your partner. It’s close and passionate. And truly shows the deep connection between the two people. It shows that the pair are not just two people anymore, they have become one.

Proyecto 365. Cuarta Temporada. Día 6. Tradición de domingo. Creo que en cada año del proyecto he realizado una foto así. Siempre en una cita en Palmares con mi esposa donde se me hace de noche y quiero disfrutar el día, así que le agarré la mano y con la flip screen de la Canon Gx7 hice esta foto. Simplemente un recordatorio, un hito clásico de este proyecto. Un tributo a la otra mitad del equipo, un tributo al amor, un tributo a mi familia, un tributo a mi esposa. Si no fuera por ella y por su apoyo constante, este proyecto y este fotógrafo estaría perdido. Porque funcionamos en equipo, y porque después de más de 15 años juntos el amor sigue intacto. Las ganas siguen intactas y la diversión creció siempre un poco más. Así que esta foto es eso. Es mostrar la otra mitad del equipo. Siempre risas. Siempre linda. . . . Day 6. Sunday Tradition. I think that every year in the project I've taken a photo like this. Always on a date with my wife in Palmares, where night comes and I want to enjoy the day, so I took her hand and with the flip screen on the Canon Gx7 I took this photo. Just a reminder, a classic landmark of this project. A tribute to the other half of the team, a tribute to love, a tribute to my family, a tribute to my wife. If it wasn't for her and her constant support, this project and this photographer would both be lost. Because we work as a team, and because after 15 years the love remains intact. The longing is still intact and fun keeps growing. So the photo is this. Showing the other half of the team. Always laughter. Always pretty. . . #proyecto365 #project365 #mendoza #argentina #martinorozco #fotografoenmendoza #proyectopersonal #storiesbehindphotographs #CanonG7X2 #canonshooter #canonphoto #love #holdinghands

#3. One Finger Hold

This is for the playful, flirty, and independent couple. They are happy together, and they are happy apart. Showing that they are in a trusting relationship. One that supports the others dreams, ambitions, and wants to be with them in their unique adventure. Be warned, that one finger may be exhausted at the end of the day.

#4. Relaxed Interlocked Finger Hold

A mixture between the one finger hold and the interlaced hold, this one perfectly combines independence and passion. It shows that they don’t just want to be with this person, but they need to be, without letting it consume their entire being. This one feels very relaxed and easy, something that relationships should be.

#5. Over The Shoulder Hold

This one is a little more than a hand holding, this is when one of the partners wraps their arm around the other’s shoulder and holds the hand from the other side. This shows that the partner in the dominant position wants to protect their lover, by any means necessary, so they wrap them in a protective shield. If you are the one being protected, just know, it’s very cozy and warm.

#. In Conclusion

Hand holding can be a very important part of a relationship, so make sure that however you are doing it, feels comfortable and right. Enjoy the sweat the squelches between both of your palms. Enjoy the jealous looks from single people. But never let him or her hold you back from food.
