All About Intimacy :
Non Sexual Intimacy :
Holding hands is something young kids do with their parents, as a way to feel safe. It's something elderly couples in their 90s do, to show each other they still love each other. It is a universal symbol of caring, tenderness and security. Your hands are extremely sensitive, they are the main way you "take action" in life. So to have your hands interlocked with the hands of another person is the ultimate way to say "you are what I choose in my life".
Holding hands isn't "childish". It is done by eskimoes, by Chinese peasants, by Iranian lovers. Touching hands is the universal sign of tenderness and love. Hold hands more often - as you walk down a local nature trail, as you drive on your chores, as you sit and watch a movie. Maintain that touch.
