how to reclaim touch for platonic relationships


Recommended Posts

I would like to touch my friends more but I have trouble not associating it with romance or sex. For example yesterday my friend wanted to cuddle and I agreed but had an uneas about it being foreplay or something romantic. Any tips how can I feel comfortable with touching without assuming it's non platonic?

Communication is probably the best way to go about it. Make sure everyone involved understands it's explicitly platonic.

Yeah but I've told him I'm aromantic and asexual and he seem to get it. Maybe I can ask more generally about how he feels about it. Like if it feels different for him to cuddle outside a sexual or romantic relationship context.
