A touch is reassuring and uplifting. And at least for that moment, it feels like someone else understands us and relates to us, and most importantly, connects with us. A touch can convey a lot more love and affection than words. Try any of these touches and both of you will feel closer, bond better and feel more connected in no time!

1 Playful wrestling


Do you ever fight each other in jest with pillows or with your hands while playing on the bed? This may seem immature, but it’s a great way to feel closer and relieve stress at the same time.

2 Tickles

A tickle can be annoying at times, but it’s still a lot of fun. It’s a great excuse to touch each other non-sexually, and make each other laugh and feel good at the same time.

3 Stroke their hair

Run your hands through your partner’s hair while cuddling up. You’ll feel great and your partner will feel a lot more loved.

4 Pat on the butt

While walking past them, give your lover a naughty pat on the butt while walking past them, or interlace your fingers with theirs for a second as you walk past each other.

5 Wandering hands

Let your hands wander over your lover’s body when both of you are watching the telly. Run your hands against their palms or over their arms, or just about anywhere else. It doesn’t have to be sexual at all, and it’ll still make both of you feel more connected.

6 Dance together

It doesn’t matter if you don’t know how to dance. When your favorite tune’s playing in the background, hold each other’s hands and dance along. Your boyfriend or girlfriend may laugh about it, but they’ll feel good about it too!

7 Hold hands

Hold your lover’s hands now and then when you’re with them. It doesn’t matter if you’re at a restaurant, in public or lazing a home.

8 Sit on their lap

Sitting on a lover’s lap or resting your head on their lap will make your partner want to cuddle you back instantly.

9  A hug

A simple hug could seem meaningless, but it’s something that’ll make both of you feel really good. Just hugging each other for about half a minute releases feel-good chemicals in your body that’ll make both of you feel loved and connected, and it’ll have an uplifting effect on your mood too.

10 Driving

Place your hand on your lover’s thigh when they’re driving the car. If you don’t want to make your gesture obvious and feel awkward about it, place your hand on your partner’s thigh while saying something to them or while emphasizing about something. It’ll feel natural, and yet, it’ll make your partner feel good about being in love with you.

11  The hand on cheek

Hold your lover’s face with your two hands, or place your palm on their cheek while saying something. It’s an endearing gesture that’ll always make your partner feel good.

12 Playing with the feet

If you’re lazing on the couch with your partner, place their feet on your lap and run your fingers around their toes. You could tickle it or massage it, and it’ll still feel just as playful and good.

13 The kiss

Just how often do you kiss your lover? Has the kiss just turned into a move you do during foreplay? A kiss is a powerful connection. Kiss your lover often, even if it’s just a casual peck on the lips. As long as you feel like kissing your partner often, your relationship will grow stronger, and both of you will feel more loved too.

Remember, non-sexual touches are just as important as sexual touches in a relationship. Indulge in them often, and both of you will feel more loved, connected and happier every single day!
