I Am Very Touchy Feely

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 847 People

    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...

    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.

    I became a very touchy

    and feely female at an early age. I watched my mother as she would hug and kiss us kids and other family members plus her male and female friends. She taught me well in being touchy and feely too. I love hugging and kissing my family members and my friends as well. I must...

    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!

    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...

    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...

    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. 😁😘❤️

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

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

    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...

    Always have been. all my good friends know this.

    There is no surprise when I give friendship hugs and kisses. To me it's an intimate of connecting with others. I love it when my friends touch me, unconditionally, in return

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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'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...
