What Does Holding Hands Signify?

I really like this girl I'm dating. One night, while sitting next to her and watching TV, I placed my hand on hers. She immediately grabbed it and smiled. It was the most powerful and romantic feeling ever. I've done way more than this but have never felt the same way.

I've been single for a long time and the holding hands gesture feels almost new to me. Does this mean we're in now a relationship? Or is this a just friends kind of thing?

Appreciate the feedback. As an update, she and I have been dating. I've asked her out like 5 times already. We never made it clear where we were in our friendship. But this one night, I was super nervous. It took me forever to do it, but I finally reached over, brushed the top of my hand against hers and she took it.

Note- I noticed that she addresses me as her boyfriend when talking to friends.
