aro_elise Posted January 24 Share Posted January 24 i wanted to do a poll but i wasn't sure how to categorize. just curious how you guys feel about touch--what kinds, with whom, under what circumstances. i'll go first. basically, overall i'm neutral at best. like you know how for some people it's a "love language"--a way to express/receive affection, well, for me that doesn't really make sense. obviously anything in a romantic context is super uncomfortable, but as for platonic/familial, it mostly just feels unnecessary. occasional hugging, sure, if we're quite close. cuddling, no. someone putting their arm around me for comfort, no. if we're not close, anything feels kind of weird, like if an acquaintance touches my arm (you know how some people do that casually, as if to help convey what they're saying) i'll be a bit thrown off; it would never occur to me to do that. i suppose people may find it odd that i find these things rather too intimate but am favourable toward sexual acts including with strangers (as long as i'm attracted to them), but i don't see it as incongruous because they're totally different situations. 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
