    Feels Uncomfortable

    I usually just keep my hands to myself. I kind of expect other people to mirror that but sometimes they kind of "overstep the boundaries" lol. I have accepted hugs and given hugs and it's been fine, but I think sometimes feeling can have intimate implications. For some reason...

    I'm starting to understand

    why now. I actually love being touched but I lack the capacity to interpret being touched. I enjoy it so much, any touch from the opposite sex sends me off down the road of love, even a simple brush of hands. It makes me wonder and think about it for many minutes after contact...

    It's Complicated..

    I am too "cuddley" of a person, but then again; I often get annoyed by other who behave in such way. Guess I'm a freak.

    Eye Contact Is Enough

    Shaking hands is dangerous. Virals, bacteria, fungus. Hugging, kissing, high fiving are all unnecessary displays of wanton attention-seeking. Hadn't kissed my Mum on the cheek until I was 40.  Have never touched my Dad. My brother, who has lived in Germany for 10 years, has...

    Don't Touch

    I'm a married older guy and I can't stand being touched by my wife. It just gives me the creeps. I will hug my grand baby and my daughter in laws sometimes. My wife always like to hold hands but I make up an excuse that I don't have to. Also I don't like any intimacy with her or...

    I will hug my boyfriend, and my parents, and my grandparents, and occasionally my siblings, and a very very select few close friends. But beyond that. Keep your grimy hands off me :P When people hug my or hold my hand too long when we shake hands, it makes me want to take a...

    Just wondering, are there people like this

    or is it a rare condition? I like having my personal space. I'm not opposed to hugging and kissing, and I like it once in awhile, but most of the time I could not care less if I didn't make human contact for weeks. My family thinks I'm weird and get on me for not hugging them...
