I love to be hugged! Now, I don't know about touching. Depends on where and if they're making me uncomfortable. It depends on WHO too. I really like hugs from most anybody -- old friends, new friends, old neighbors or church members or ALL my family & definitely my partner. Unless they are complete and total strangers or creeps, I'd probably accept the hug gladly. If it's another male though, who isn't my partner (or family) then I would feel uncomfortable being hugged by them. Hey, can't help it. We've all been there. Touching is different. I like for people to give me my personal space because I feel nervous if they're too close in my face or something. Not that I feel grossed out at all, it's just something that makes me slightly nervous. I guess I don't want to end up breathing all over them or hell, spitting on them when I talk or something. LOL. I like a bit of distance. I don't mind any touching from my close family or partner, but we really ain't a touchy family. We keep our hands pretty much to ourselves. LOL. I don't mind little touching, but I don't think I'd be completely comfortable with it from just anyone.
