How can a guy avoid the hover hand in the first place
All of us have suffered from a hover hand at some point in our lives, be it in the eighth grade or at some other time. But it’s all about learning. If you’re suffering from a bad case of the hover hand, here are a few things you need to remember.
#1 Be confident around women. A confident guy doesn’t suffer from embarrassing incidents like the hover hand. Stop worrying what the world thinks of you all the time. Just work your courage and place your hands on a girl’s shoulder firmly. You’ll see how easy it can be only after you try it.
#2 It’s a great excuse. Events where you get snapped with women are a great excuse to touch women and pull them close. You’re only doing it for the photo, and there really is nothing bad about it. [Read: How to kiss a friend accidentally]
#3 Is she standing close? If the girl comes close to you while clicking a snap, it means you’re allowed to hold her or wrap your arm around her. Why else would she come close?
#4 Remember the fact. Remember what you’re touching, it’s just her shoulder. You’re not manhandling her or pawing her. You’re just being nice. Just don’t let the awkwardness show in your face while taking the snap though.
#5 Keep it brief. You can take your hands off the girl’s shoulder as soon as the photo’s clicked. She’ll understand that you weren’t trying to sexually harass her. As long as you continue the conversation and avoid sounding awkward and uncomfortable after the photo’s taken, things will go just fine. [Read: How to compliment a girl the nice way]
