I only touch people I like. if it's out of empathy/saying goodbye/if someone is crying I feel pretty awkward and try to hide the awkwardness I'm feeling.
now i wanna start watching true blood again. <3
with a very few people i'm mindlessly touchy. like my kid gets annoyed sometimes because i'm always randomly hugging him or scruffing his hair or squeezing his shoulders. or with a guy i'm close with, ass grabbing or pounce hugs. its instinctual and thoughtless, like a habit. if its somebody outside of that circle, then every touch is deliberate. i want to flirt, console, whatever, and i know what i'm doing. and i don't touch otherwise.
if somebody i don't know just randomly touches me, it feels a little too intimate. like the equivalent of overly prolonged eye contact or something.
i like brief cuddling. too long makes me feel smothered and i need to breathe. unless its just me using them as a pillow or something. but being held or spooned i can only do for so long and i feel claustrophobic. its really nice and cozy for about ten minutes.
i know it can be annoying but i like touching peoples faces. just stroking. and i get really bad urges to play with peoples hair, even strangers (but i hold myself back in that case, obviously). generally just above the shoulders is a place i enjoy touching for some reason.
I actually really like touching people's faces too.
gifs are a beautiful thing.
i keep watching that and i'm literally jealous of that guy lol
he's all like yeah bitches i'm touching this and you're not
it actually kind of is but its my visceral reaction whenever i see her.
I KNOW SOMEONE WHO LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE THIS

I like Bill Better. I'm upset that he's now a fucking blood monster.

If I can't imagine what something feels like, I feel driven to touch it. I go around stroking lamp posts and trees and buildings, which doesn't draw much attention, but people are unfortunately off limits most of the time.
I'm very touchy feely with a select few people (boyfriend, mom, grandma, a couple of friends) but for the most part, I like to maintain a distance. I don't want my body to get in the way of anyone else's and vice versa.
Ladies and gentlemen, my duals.
I like having my own space that people have to be invited into. I find people who have to hug me or shake my hand every time they see me to be annoying, but because I don't want to be rude I usually will give a brief hug or handshake if the other person initiates. I'll rarely initiate things like that. I have no problem giving hearty hugs to my kids and wife and a few people I really love. Sometimes I have this burst of energy and I have to hug my kids or go wild and rough them up, play games with them, but afterwords I'm like "okay, okay," that's enough and withdraw. They want to sit on my lap a lot and I let them for a few minutes and then I have them get off. I love them, but just don't like people in my space. I try to not be mean about it, they have their needs too.
I like space in bed too. I'm fine with cuddling that leads to sex, but afterward I like space and don't like someone laying on me for very long.
Space, space, space......I'm lucky that my wife is the same way.
Omfg this cracked me up. I am exactly like this. Especially the part about having the desire to touch the hair of strangers and like smell it but I refrain of course. Also the part about physical touch feeling too intimate to be touched all the time. But I do prod people to emphasize what I'm communicating. Body language is my number one communicator. I've been known to dominate people who are too rude or cross too many boundaries of me and my closer friends. By dominate I mean scare the piss out of them with body language.
I do not say bleh, bleh bleh
