Anyone hate being touched by strangers?

Ugh the other day this woman stranger touched me because she wanted to get passed this small area we were in in the supermarket and she couldn't just be patient and wait.
She said "Excuse me?" but I didn't have time to move myself instead she pressed her hand on my bum and sort of tried to shift me herself. It's like ugh, get off! LOL I didn't say anything but I did tut. Though afterwards to my parents I was like Omg, that stranger just man handled me ugh lol.
If she was going to just try to move me herself, why bother even saying excuse me in the first place. TUT TUT lol

Anyone else hate when strangers accidently or purposely touch you?

I hate being touched in general. I don't care where it is or who does it.
I have this freind that thinks it's funny to poke people in the stomach. I've tried to ask him to stop, but eventualy I resorted to avoiding him. I still talk to him, but never when sitting down.

I'm also a little Claustrophobic in crowds.

[joke]I also hate gay people touching me.[/joke]

Aphenphosmphobia- Fear of being touched.
Haphephobia or Haptephobia- Fear of being touched.
Chiraptophobia- Fear of being touched.

Yes. I'm only okay with being touched by people I know and like, and even then, even if I don't really mind it, it can make me uncomfortable because I'm not used to being touched.

I don't like being touched my strangers either, even if its on the shoulder...a stranger is anyone who is not in my immediate family by the way haha.

shyness is nice, and shyness can stop you from doing all the things in life you'd like to.

I'm not a very tactile person so yeah, this would bother me too. I did have my bum pinched once though which wasn't bad.

Nope, I hate being touched by strangers, even like doctors. If someone tried to pull that with me I would just give them a dirty look and let them know what's up. lol

I don't really like it, but today some woman touched my backside at the supermarket (I was in my road-cycling gear... think full spandex) and I think she actually touched my butt on purpose. That was kind of funny actually.

I just laughed. A year ago, I probably would have been very unhappy.

I don't mind people touching me to get by as long as they're nice about it. If I feel that someone was being rude and touched me I can still feel their touch and it makes me angry. But like I said if it's the other way around I don't mind and just forget about it pretty quickly.

I really don't care as long as the touching isn't intentionally inappropriate and sexual in nature. What I really hate though is when people try and pick me up! Just because I look tiny doesn't mean you can grab at me and carry me around, please keep your urges under control!

I don't know if it is something that I particularly dislike but it is an odd feeling when it happens because it is so rare. I went to a gay pride parade a while back and just trying to get down the sidewalk you were rubbing people front to back squeezing through so that was a bit odd. I had to touch people myself to get through.

I hate being touched by anyone..except family. I actually recoil a bit if someone touches me.. it's automatic reaction..makes for some pretty embarrassing moments.

handshakes are fine, but i don't like hugs and kisses, or people standing to close to me when they talk. Breathing space, dude.

I ain't sayin' I beat the devil, but I drank his beer for nothing
