How to get my boyfriend to hold hands?

I've been dating my boyfriend for a week now, and we haven't held hands yet. I really, really want to, but I'm just too chicken and shy to do so. He is also shy, and is usually quiet. This is my first real boyfriend, and so I don't have much experience with guys. He likes me, I like him. We sit next to each other whenever we can. He does walk side by side with me, so should I reach his hand unexpectedly and hold hands? UGH! I don't know how or when to do this. I need advice. I do wish he'd make the first move about this, but he was the one who asked me out. So, do you think he wants me to make the first move?

(Ignore this question! Problem resolved!)

  • Just make the first move yourself. Honestly, I don't think most guys think of hand holding as a really big deal. At least not in the way girls seem to.
