Hello, I want you to inquire about a subject of (sexual) touching.
I'm a new person there in England, two weeks ago I got off work and on my way I came across a girl while she was leaving a bar, she spoke to me how are you and where are you from...
On our way, she tried to hold my arm, so I put my hand on her shoulder, and then I grabbed her hand, and we started talking normally. Suddenly she left and said my friends are waiting for me.Is this touching considered sexual in this case?
Could I get into trouble?
Thanks

No, holding hands is not considered sexual in nature. I trust this assists

Good morning,
Any touching can be considered sexual – it is not the body part but the intent. If not sexual assault it can still be considered assault to touch another without their consent.

Do you agree with this opinion, and does it apply to my case?
