OpenAce Posted December 19, 2017 Share Posted December 19, 2017 So I have a squish, and its pretty strong. Other than that I want a QPP later in life. I'm AroAce and sex, romance, and touch repulsed. On this page ( http://theasexualityblog.tumblr.com/post/114559247241/list-of-non-sexual-forms-of-intimacy ) is a whole bunch of ways intimacy can be shared in non-sexual ways. Some of these sound really nice, however, i know that i can't 'have' them... Things like playing with each other's hair, moving your head to their chest and listening to their heartbeat/breathing, shoulder-to-shoulder touch/hugs when sitting together, the kind of hugs The 11th Doctor gives (Doctor Who), and my personal favorite when i need support: Anyway, I say that I cant have these as i am touch repulsed. I think about them, and I really want to try them, possibly with my squish. But, whenever anyone touches me, i just completely withdraw, get really uncomfortable, and it gets awkward between us- even if i know they were just try to help... In case it's important- i have no idea why im so touch repulsed; if i was never abused or anything like that. Being touched generally triggers my anxiety, but again, im not sure why. It might have something to do with the fact that my senses are very sensitive and it just overwhelms me, but idk... i dont really know what im asking... I guess, anyone else there who experiences the same thing? Or have any tips to get around it? Anyway, any responses are appreciated, thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
