What is the difference between caress and fondle?
Be careful with this one!!
"Caress" means to touch or hold lovingly, gently, affectionately.
I love caressing my girlfriend's hair.
She caresses that dog like it's a baby.
"Fondle" usually means to do so in a sexual manner. (From my dictionary): "charges that he fondled a patient during an examination". This is almost always used in a sexual/erotic context.
(I don't think you need any examples for "fondle")
