Here's a thing...

This is a question for all the *couples* out there...  I'm wondering - why is it necessary to hold your partner's hand, or have your arms around each other, when doing the most mundane and uninteresting things?  Like, picking which sandwich to buy at a petrol station...  Do these things really cause anxiety?  Do they require mutual support, and the care of those who love you?  Or is it just that you can't seem to do the simplest day-to-day task without clinging to your boyspouse/girlspouse for support and reassurance?

Am I being bitter, harsh, cynical, and generally an all-round bastard?  Yes...  But I'm tired, annoyed, and I don't care...  So there!!

hehe perhaps you need someone to hold your hand and help you calm down :D

This is brilliant

Its a sign of affection towards my partner.
Yes she knows I don't need to do it, I don't care what other people think, and psychologically it makes her happy........ all in all, a small price to pay for her happiness, don't you think?

You are so right Kit! The touchy-feeliness of modern, youthful lurv is positively nauseating. If you want to "keep in touch" you should grope her properly, in public, in front of a thousand whooping, cheering lager louts. If that doesn't appeal, then keep your sentimental gestures for private consumption only!

I think it's sweet to hold hands. It's one of my fave things to do :)

and now I'm singing "I wanna hold your hannndd... I wanna hold your hand. And when I touch you I feel happy, inside..."

Errgh... I know what you mean. It's unnecessary and bloody annoying.
