body language--placing hands under another's elbows
posted by anonymous to human relations (38 answers total)
I'm wondering what is the interpretation when one person cups both their hands under another's elbows? I am a kinesthetic, physically expressive woman who recently did this to convey reassurance and affection, and to command attention as I was saying something serious and heart-felt to the other person, a man who is a friend. I'm familiar with this movement and these feelings, as "hands-under-elbows" was often used in my family. But now I am wondering how the feelings I intended to convey were interpreted by the other person?
