    I'm Actually Not a Touchy Feely Person

    Or a fan of public displays of affection... But until recently when things started getting more serious with my boyfriend i realised that i sorta am. I realised how nice another persons skin feels. I always wanna touch him. I never used to be like that at all, and...

    Body Language

    I am the type of person who likes to touch. My hands pretty much can tell you how I feel about someone. For example:   If I cross my arms or hold my hands tightly together..I don't like you. If I reach out and touch your arm while talking to you...I'm interested. If I...

    Love to Be Touched

    I really love to have physical contact with my significant other. I mean that I love to hold hands, cuddle, lay together, give an affectionate rub or touch from time to time for no reason. This use to drive my ex crazy cause she always said don't touch me, but my girlfriend now...

    I Found Out The Hard Way Not Everyone Is

    I tend to be more reserved about it since then though.Sometimes it's really hard not to. I know who lets me hug them and then I tend to assume others won't.I do tend to get surprised by someone every once in a while but I do not have a problem with it. being surprised isn't...

    If I'm with someone I love I can't keep my hands to myself. Why would you want to anyway?

    There's Nothing Like The Human Touch.

    I admit it! I like to touch, but not how you may all think. A few of us have really connected as friends here on EP. Can you imagine what it would be like if we were face to face? Can you feel me holding your hands in mine when you just want me to listen? Can you feel my arms...

    I don't mean to be but I am.

    Especially the people I love always just squeezing, tickling, pinching, someone I love. It's like I have to just squeeze them and love on them. Hell even my animals. I'm not sure where it comes from i guess I'm just extra loving. 😁😘❤️

    This Is Me!

    I have always been a very touchy feely person for as long as I can remember.  It is one of the most important ways that I connect with people.  And I very much agree with emptyheart!  You can tell how I feel about you by paying attention to my arms and hands. I am...

    It's really weird that I am very shy

    and touchy feely at the same time. I always touch to the person I'm talking and I hug and kiss (on cheek of course you pervs >_< ) my friends or family and I'm not a perv. And I'm very shy too!

    At Least In Theory

    I think I get very "touchy feely" when I feel some sort of intense emotion. I mean, I give quick hugs when saying hello and goodbye, but... Like I know when I feel sad, a nice long hug is a good remedy. I love my neices more than anyone else in the world, so getting big...

    Only to Her

    I am touchy feely because reaching out with a hand and feeling you and having that connection is my way of silently tell you how much I love you and how much I care.  when I am running my hand along your arm or hand it's not because I'm bored, it's not because I think it...

    It's True, But I Don't See Anything Wrong With It

    I Love The Feeling....

    Of skin touching skin. I just love to touch and to be touched, it is an amazing feeling to be touched by one that you love, and to feel their energy transferred to your own body. I love to massage my boyfriend, and I can feel him melt under my fingers. I know he makes me melt...

    I'm A Hugger

    First I should say I'm not a stranger hugger.  I've been put in that position many times where someone I have never seen before goes in for the hug and I cave and give a meaningless hug while secretly feeling a bit frustrated.  But if I know you, If I like you - chances are I'm...

    Holding Hands

    I love the gentle intimacy of holding hands, one of the simplest gestures and the connection it creates.

    I'll Admit It I Like Hugs.

    My family wasn't very demonstrative as I was growing up. I don't remember touching much. My friends would hug me and I would think this is awkward. I remember when I let go and let myself enjoy the contact. I was 22 and my friend was a hugger she would just say gimme a hug and...

    Always Have Been

    I love to be hugged and to give hugs when they are needed. I will hug a stranger but that can be kind of uncomfortable if you don't know the person. My family is that was. It was the way I was raised and it has never left me. If you were to walk up to me in the street and tell me...

    I love being very touchy feely with others.

    I love hugging and kissing others and think nothing about it. It is common in my own family. I learned this from my mother.
