    I Don't Get Hugged Often

    Usually I like to keep my distance but sometimes it makes me feel so good when someone touches me. It makes me feel loved and cared for. When people actively seek to show me affection or be very close to me I feel good.

    I Love To Touch And Be Touched...

    In my world, there are three kinds of touch...friendly touch, sensual touch, and loving touch.  All three are wonderful, but my favourite is loving touch.Loving touch, for me, is when his fingers brush my face, my cheek, my nose, my chin....when he takes my face in his hand...

    Emptiness And Being Alone Vs. Being With...

    So how do I get past this ever-present cycle of a day here or a day there when I feel completely lost and completely empty?  I am, for the most part, pretty content to be who I am and for the most part, I am happy.  That’s said, I want to have someone in my life that I look...

    But Not From Just Anyone.

    It happened so fast. It was like I was hit by a bus. A bus made of kittens and rainbows.  I smiled so hard that my face hurts.  We let so much of ourselves out and let each other in; so much it would have killed anyone else. Or at least, scared the crap out of them...

    What Love Looks Like.

    This is how i show i love someone: i hug them; kiss them; hold their hand; give them a massage; sit really close to them; put my head on their chest, or the other way around. It could be completely innocent, like between me and my siblings, or a little more charged, like with my...

    A New Touch Community Website!

    Not talking sexual. I mean holding hands,

    leaning against someone, anything. Without touch, I start feeling desperately lonely no matter how much attention I'm getting.

    Like Air.

    I should be touched.  I was made for it.  I am as needful as any woman, and on a good day, less ashamed.  When I am feeling particularly well, I long openly for touch.  I cast eyes at strangers, watching how they move in their bodies, looking for signs of their...

    Finding the Profound

    Touch - I believe is the purest form of communication. It is much more difficult to be dishonest through touch than through words. I think that touch creates a reality in which individuals have a persistent presence that cannot be ignored, denied or discarded.  What are the...

    Affection

    The Ghost of Shapes

    Incessantly

    I loved being touched. Soft, gentle caresses. When I was a child, my grandmother would run her fingers along my back (arms, legs) and lovingly caress my skin. I called it "tickling" ...*giggles* ..I'd say, "Grandma! Tickle my back, please!"...I loved it, and still do love it...

    Shaking hands, hugs, sitting next to some I

    know. I am not a fan of more than shaking hands with someone I don't know. After I connect with a person, it feels wrong not to hug them.

    Skin Contact..

    Seriously Touch-deprived

    I am seriously touch-deprived. So much that I appreciate every touch I get, small or big from people I know. Hugging family. A pat on the shoulder. Holding my little sibling's hand. Getting a playful punch. Tickle fights. But I need more. Hugging. Holding. Caressing. Stroking...

    I'm not a touchy person. I don't go around hugging everybody, or even accepting hugs from people, and my parents and friends aren't touchy either. But, for some reason, when it comes to relationships, I need touch. I don't know why... I just like forms of communication...

    I believe in human touch.

    I know that my mood can instantly be shifted by someone simply touching my skin. There is some sort of extremely powerful nonverbal communication that occurred instantly upon touch. Sometime I thing there is a sort of energy transfer in a skin to skin touch. A primal instant...
