Likes to Touch: Them: Yes ___ No ___

Have you noticed that there are some people who are always touching? They rest their hand on your arm, as if by doing so, you might hear what they are saying, more clearly.

Or they rest they hand on your shoulder. I like to think it does make a better connection between  two people in the long run.

I was very surprised the first time I had to restrain myself when talking with a male friend. He made a face like he was in pain the first time I put my hand over his.

We had known each other for more than a year, so I didn’t believe he would misinterpret my actions. It turned out that his parents never hugged him as a child. He became extremely uncomfortable when anyone touched him.

Secretly, I was very glad that I wasn’t attracted to him. I imagine I would have felt left out of his life no matter how long we were together.
