no never :-)
I touch them if I like them, if they are dear to me or I want them to be dear to me.
No, I don't like touching or being touched except by people who are special to me
Frequently, but it depends largely on who I'm talking to. I don't do it with total strangers, but if it's someone I know and feel reasonably comfortable with, then yeah. I was a massage therapist for many years, so I'm very at ease with touching people.
Yes, but not to make a point, to comfort.
I actually grab them by their shoulders and shake them - that makes my message more emphatic and helps get my point across. lol.
No, I charley horse it.
Never. That would be almost a bit agressive and would be a violation of their personal space. The only one I would touch in such a way when speaking would be my significant other.
I like touching people, but they don't like being touched anymore, so I keep a safe distance, to make them feel less intruded upon.
No. I'm not a touchy-feely sort, unless I'm smitten with them and have been invited into their personal space.
