Re: Does anyone else not like to be touched?
I like being touched...but just like small talk touching is a form of signaling or showing affection to someone else and i don't feel i have the experience yet to show it back properly...i was pretty rough with generally talking to someone a few months back but i'm slowly picking it up and being able to express and connect with people (Sometimes).
I'm just not used to touchingl, I mean i get hugs from family members but since i've never really been in a close form relationship with someone its not something i'm used to...I need practice
I notice when doing things like taking pictures with family, people are pretty comfortable, they won't think twice about putting their arms around someone or getting cuddly with someone...me on the other hand I'm a nervous wreck
It makes me uncomfortable because I feel i need to show that back, there seems to be pressure i put on myself and maybe i interpret it all wrong...If i force myself to put my arm around someone or touch someone I feel awkward and i believe the other person can sense that I'm feeling quite uncomfortable.

listen in between your notes
theres something been going on
while you were busy taking notes
and look in between your moments
theres something good happening
its good to sometimes
slow it down
get your head out from those mags
and websites who try to
shape your style
take a risk just for yourself
and wade into the deep end of the ocean
