    even when I was a baby. I don't like being touched on my shoulders, arms, hand, head, and hair. I also don't like sitting close enough to someone that our thighs touch. when I was a baby I wouldn't even let people pick me up, I would only allow my brother and parents to hold me...

    I'm Not Terrified of Them Or Anything.

    But I don't get as much of a kick out of them as most others seem to. Personally, I find them sort of... awkward. You're in a close contact for a few seconds with someone you might not normally have contact with. So I never really seek out hugs, and if someone wants to hug me...

    Ugh

    I heard that in MENSA meetings, because people with very high IQs occasionally have some trouble socializing, there is actually a system to avoid unwanted physical contact. On your name tag you have a yellow dot if you love physical contact, orange if you're OK with it or only in...

    Please Stop Hugging Me Without My Permission...

    My 21-year-old brother hugs me every time I come over. My parents seem to think that hugging me will somehow make me feel better. I just don't like hugs. I don't even like touching people. I'm not scared of germs or anything, I just don't like it. I don't think there's anything...

    Because...

    It's the physical contact, and the energy exchange from it - makes me feel weird. I transfer so much energy just in talking. Spiritual hugs I like... and I suppose I would be okay with quick hugs in person, but I avoid them in general.

    When someone hugs me i feel awkward it's like

    they are braking my bubble. My arms just hang there as i don't want or even fully "know" how to react its something i don't appreciate. Even hand shaking for me is very awkward i don't want to but it isn't as bad. If i need to trade a hand shake for a hug i guess i'd accept at...

    From people I barely know of course,

    I only accept hugs from people I actually get along with or feel comfortable around with. I sometimes understand little of physical contact but it's nice to be affectionate with people you care about.
