Elegant hand gestures when talking

by Allie

Dear Eunice,

Thank-you so much for making such a lovely and helpful site! As the eldest daughter in a family of girls who was brought up like the boy, your site has been instrumental in my journey to groom myself. Before finding this site, I was always confused about why boys did not like a masculine girl like me, whereas they were always finding faults with women!

What are elegant and appropriate hand gestures when one is standing and talking? Should my hands be relaxed at my sides, or should I hold them? I tend to be too animated when I talk, and my hands are always flying all over the place! Advice would be much appreciated.

Thank-you again for making such a beautiful website. God bless.

Elegant Gestures - Maybe None at all
by: Eunice replies

Thank you for your very kind message. It is refreshing to see this submission and it definitely stood out from the rest. You are a wonderful blessing!

Gestures are elegant only if they are kept minimal and small. Your arms shouldn't be 'flung' around. If you really need to gesture, keep the movement of your arms restricted from the elbows only. That means, your upper arms are usually 'stuck' to your body.

It is actually more elegant not to gesture much. I was animated like you, and probably still am. I always don't know what to do with my hands. So these days, you'll find me holding on to a drink always and my other arm relaxed.

That way, I seem 'calmer' and I can listen to those in my company without fretting about my arms.
