What Guys Said 1

  • You'd generally not see a guy hold another guy's hand, unless jokingly. If he does it with a girl, it's probably because she's a girl. Of course there are context matters, like if you're in a crowded place and don't want to lose each other.(But even then, guys would likely not hold hands with each other.)


What Girls Said 1

  • It can be platonic. My girl best friend, who’s gay, will let me hold her hand. She’ll even hold mine. Nothing romantic about it. I also hold my guy best friend’s hand (he’s gay)
