By on January 9, 2016

Oh the great hand hold! It’s basically the easiest, slickest way to connect with the person you’re interested in. Not to mention the first intimate physical contact that you make with them. It’s the perfect way to get rid of those jitters and show someone that you’re into them.

If you want to open up that door for something more than a friendship, getting a guy to hold your hand is the way to go. Here are my special ways you can get him to hold your hand in no time.


  1. Be Flirtatious

First, you’ve really got to let him know you’re interested. It’ll give him the bravery to grab your hand if he knows you won’t pull it away right after. Twirl your hair, smile a lot, and be super flirty with him. Set it up so he has something to work with! By being flirty, you’re giving him the confidence to take hold of that hand.

  1. Stay Calm

If you’re really nervous, that’s going to show through and it’s never good. People feed off of other people’s emotions. That means that your nerves are going to rub off on him and he’s going to be too nervous to make a move.

Keep your emotions in check! I know it can be really hard to keep calm when your crush is standing two feet away from you and there’s the possibility that you’ll finally be able to hold his hand. But just breathe and relax. Plus, if you’re nervous your hands will get all gross and sweaty – something that no one wants to hold.


  1. Get Him Alone

It’s never easy getting up the courage to hold someone’s hand when there are a bunch of people around. If you really want him to make the move and grab your hand, you’ll have to get him alone first.

You can just ask him to go somewhere “quieter” to talk, lead him away from the group, or really anything else that’ll make him follow you away from the crowd. He might even grab your hand on the way to being alone if he’s excited about it.
