I Am Very Touchy Feely

    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...

    They come for me when I am alone Fingers gnawed

    straight to the bone Grasping hands and toothy grins Faces left hanging from their chins They touch me while I scream and cry Gentle caresses followed by a content sigh Fleshless fingers scratching, grasping Prodding, poking, picking, laughing No part of me is safe, not even...

    I did not grow up with a lot of affection.

    And I'm not one of those who is always touching people, who has to hug you when she sees you. On occasion I'll run across a person I feel the need to touch. I usually find this baffling but follow the need. My husband's cousin lives in the same town as us. His wife is basically...

    Not overly so, I don't go up to perfect

    strangers and start rubbing them down and groping them...(I may need to rethink that) Ha! Yea, ummm no! I will not do that. If I am in a relationship I am.

    This is why I hate long distance relationships

    it just doesn't seem real, as if they're not really there.

    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!

    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...

    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...

    Just a Memory/just nonsense Tonight,

    I'm alone after a good weekend. I'm feeling slim and strong. It's colder outside than it has been all season. I like the fall. I get to wear my scarf and cute boots. It would be nice to have the solid strong arms of a nice man around me or friendly big hands to warm my chilly...

    Holding Hands

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

    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 to touch and to be touched.. Hugs, hand holding, casual caresses, all of it's wonderful.. I believe there's a connection when you touch someone.. It's the simplest way of showing affection..

    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. 😁😘❤️

    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...

    For me, touch is something

    that I can't live without, but sometimes with some people I just can't stand being touched. Usually tho, I'm always hugging people, throwing my arms around them, and generally being a really touchy-feely kinda person.

    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...

    Even in ways that aren't intimate.

    If there's a display in a shop... Imma touch it. If I'm talking to someone and their arm is on the table... Imma touch it. If someone has a hairstyle that I notice is different... Guess what. Imma touch it.

    i feel the reason i am this way is because

    as a child and generally in my household we never hugged, kissed, said 'i love you' or anything like that. And since i was never a part of any kind of extra curricular activities outside of school...i watched a lot of tv. And family shows were big on my list. So i always saw...
