Traditional, submissive girls will often reach for their man’s hand when in public because his hand makes her feel safe and secure.
Don’t wait for her to reach for yours – reach for hers first. Taking her hand in yours means more to her than just “holding hands”. It proves to her that you care about her comfort level when she is surrounded by people.
Your hand – like your voice and your scent – ground her, centre her, and make her feel more confident that you have everything under control – including her world.
