Title says it all. Simple question.

I most certainly do. Just like the 11th Doctor. Just like President Trump. Hands add emphasis.

No...and it really irks me when people start flicking or waving their hands at me when they're talking to me. I am perfectly capable of understanding what you're trying to say without you trying to cut the air into pieces, thank you. Keep still, for Christ's sake.

Obviously sign language is another matter entirely, but I don't know sign language, so for me it's a moot point.

No, because my social anxiety turned me into a shrinking violet. But if I get excited or pissed, then I start talking with parts of my body I never knew could speak.

I've found myself moving my hands at times as I talk even when I'm on a voice chat and there's no possible way the other people could see what I'm doing.

So I'm pretty sure the answer for me is yes.

I haven't talked with Hands but we share a lot of the same views so I think it would be nice.

But really, only when I'm really excited.

I'm notorious for this. Most people think I'm mad or something but it's just a habit. Even in voice chat lmfao.

Am I the only one who uses my hands far more often when on the phone to someone who has no idea what I'm doing, rather than when talking face to face lmao
Lost count of the number of times I've been like "I know you can't see this, but my hands are getting the point across very well" lmao. I don't even realise I'm doing it half the time lol!

I actully hate it when people talk with their hands unless they can only use sign language that is.
