Touch Is Very Powerful

out of the 5 love languages mine is physical touch. I love skin to skin contact. I have a really hard time satisfying this need to be loved, to be touched which has gotten me into trouble a couple of times. My family is very non touch, and I never want to prematurely give someone a hug or touch them when they don't want me to.

I feel you sweetheart. I've almost lost my job because of it. I've almost lost my marriage too. But still, I can't seem to stay away from it. So I read the stories here to try and cope. But that seems to help fan the flames. What's a person to do?

I am like this as well. I love being hugged more than anything however my family is not affectionate in anyway. People think i come off mean so they don't think i want to be hugged even though i'd love any form of touch. I cannot initiate it because I don't think they want it.
