I Wanna Hold Your Hand : Is there an age limit to holding hands in public?

Q. I would like to know if holding hands on dates for middle aged and older adults is an appropriate thing to do if it is a platonic relationship. Does holding hands necessarily means the person initiating the action has a romantic interest in the partner? Can holding hands be just a gesture of warm friendship between two adults?

A. Yes, holding hands can be just a gesture of friendship.
