    I Love Tenderness....

    I have a co worker who can be this way with me. She is 16 years older and so sees me as like a younger sister/niece type figure I think. She can be very mothering towards me and everytime she sees me, she kisses me on the cheek and gives me a hug. She also strokes my face at...
