    It is part of my upbringing.

    My self or my family members, we are not from a Broken Family. Did not grew up playing politics between parents. Or lied to Boy friend so he would love me more, because my mother- dad hates each other.

    So many of my friends aren't touchy

    and they cringe when you hug them or snuggle up to them. It bugs me so much. My primary love language is definitely physical touch. When being comforted, having an arm around me or a hand on my shoulder makes a HUGE difference. I wish more people understood this.

    Playfulness And Cuddling

    Whether on a happy or sad occasion, a long hug can mean so much. I've always been one for hugging and cuddling. Growing up my family was very affectionate in our love for each other, and that's the way I've always been. I understand some people aren't comfortable with this sort...

    I love to hug people,

    for the smallest reasons. I love kisses and cuddles in relationships. I like it when a girl I'm dating is also affectionate as me. I crave affection, especially more intimate affection.

    I can't help but poke people

    and constantly touch them. I love getting close to people - emotionally - and learning a lot about them. I try to charm and enjoy what others have to say. I'm very cute to my girl friends, and am very jovial with my boy friends. I try to be as nice as I can (until I can't...

    Forever

    Emotions Confuse Some.

    When I am with Olivier, and he looks at me in that certain way I know that he has a gift for me, in the essential attentions he wants to give to me. I yearn for these times because I both give and receive.

    I Get It From My Parents

    I come from an enormous Italian family. They are all huggers, kissers and cheek pinchers (the cheeks on your face pervs!). I'm this way with my kids and all my friends know I'm going to hug them and kiss them. I will grab their face and plant a big kiss right on their cheek :)

    My parents always described me

    as "very loving" as a child. I loved to hug people and get kisses from my parents. Hell I even got on the cat's nerves by hugging it several times a day. Now as an adult who is "in the closet"(my country practically outlwas homosexuality) I can't keep my hands off my various...

    I easily exchange an arm around the back

    or waist for a pat on my shoulder, give hugs for a welcoming smile or a kiss on the cheek for a greeting. If you visit me, I'll cook for you!

    I do come across sometimes

    It's sad to me that sometimes the thing a

    person most wants is the very thing that eludes them. I have always craved affection. Maybe because I was not raised in a home where there was physical affection but always felt that I needed it. And I know that a person can love you very much and not show it with affection...

    I've always been the affectionate type.

    It gets awkward when I feel compelled to embrace someone but I know it's socially unacceptable. My current man confuses me on his affectionate levels. I think he wants it and I always hug and kiss him multiple times a day, and when it seems he doesn't want it it turns out he...
