    I Want To Kill Her.

    I don't like to be touched. I touch you, but you-me? Oh no you don't. Most of the people around me know that and respect it. Yet there's this one girl who keeps on touching me like it's funny or something. DO YOU SEE ME LAUGHING, YOU STUPID PERSON???? I've told her a dozen times...

    I hate being touched.

    I feel like Sheldon in the Big Bang Theory, except without the Aspergers and hypochondriasis. And, I have a fiancé. Imagine how difficult THAT is, and he is the exact opposite. He craves touch. I'm just not human, I suppose.

    Do not ******* touch me.

    Ugh!! I like to hug my best friends, and I don't mind them hugging me back, but anyone who I'm not close like that with, back the fuckk off. It just makes me feel awkward and weird and odd and small and trapped when I'm touched by others and I hate it. It doesn't have a negative...

    Ive always hated being touched by anyone,

    family included. It makes me feel like peeling my skin off, or washing myself raw. I dont even know why Im like this since Ive never had any traumatic experiences that involves physical contact.

    Being Touched Suddenly.

    I can't stand being touched suddenly, it scares me, I get very anxious when that happens. Most of the time when someone touches me I pull away very quickly. I mean, what gives? I don't know when it started but I know one thing for sure: I really, really hate it. Being touched...

    With Most People....

    ..... I don't like them touching me. Like in most of my stories, its past related. I was pushed and mistreated at a young age, so it stuck in my brain pretty well. I'll tense up, or move away, or cringe, on contact. I think I'm about to be hit subconsciously. On some cases I...

    Why do these infected hands keep plaguing my mind? They're foul surges against my body like tremors of purifying quakes; And I cannot breathe. They lap onto my mind, a sea of mire and dissorientation. Threats fed to me with honey and ribbon Dripping like a cellar and the absence...

    I usually hate people touching me. I love it when my mate does though, but that's a little different.  Idk why I don't like it, I just don't.

    I don't like being touched except by my girlfriend (and then guess why). But i hate it when people casually touch you or bump into you. Even shaking peoples hands is aggravating. I hate being touched, by anyone, for most any reason.

    Yep, I really do. I will only hug my family members if they're leaving because I have to, and I will hug my friends if they are very upset or if I won't see them for awhile. Other than that, I hate it! My friend Lucas placed his hands on my shoulders and looked at me - getting...

    I don't like being touched. It gives me a weird general sort of creepy feeling. I like to think of myself as kind of in a bubble and that's my private space. So when I touch someone I feel like I am invading some ones private space. I cant stand to get hugs from my family. For...

    The touch of a hand on my shoulder,

    the contact of a kiss on my head, or the feel of a hug, I cannot bare. Not even a friendly handshake or a calming rub on the back I can't stand. Having Asperger's Syndrome is my guess to this lack of tolerance to being touched. I can't go 5 minutes without thinking of that...

    Obviously, I hate being touched. I don't know why. It's frustrating, but perhaps even more than the touch being frustrating is the pain I feel when I see the look of disappointment on my children's faces when I can no longer bear them grasping at me and mauling me. They really...

    Only If I Dont Like You

    Some people just should not touch me if I do not like them. If my arm cringes at your touch that tells me and you something that you are not a good person or I can barely tolerate you.
