I really don't like being touched, hugged, poked, stroked, anything... Unless I'm in a relationship with the person. It's just not comfortable to be touched unless I have a commitment to the person.

I used to really not like being touched by other people when I was younger, but I've managed to grow out of that as of now. Indeed, I love hugs and hugging people and getting hugged. It's like my favourite thing! :D

There are still times when someone taps me on the shoulder and I flinch a bit, but that's more of the surprise element than the fact that I'm being touched.

I'm OK with hugs but I prefer handshakes.

See I feel like a loner here.

I get self-conscious, paranoid, even lonely when I'm deprived of physical contact.
I feel purposefully isolated when people avoid touching me, on public transports I notice people especially older people avoid sitting near me unless there are minimal seats left and I have exceptional personal hygiene.

Touch me, stroke my arm, fiddle with my hair do anything and I'll curl up in your lap and purr like a kitten.

I actually quite like physical contact! It reassures me that I'm actually part of society because I'm not
the social type but the rest of my friends are. So when they go over to their other friends for a chat, I
just sit there alone. Sometimes I also zone out into a world of my own because it's better than sitting
there and being paranoid about how other people are judging you for sitting there alone. If I have
gotten to know you and you reassure me through this, there is a 2000% chance that I will treasure you
all my life and try my best to help you in any way possible! (◕‿◕✿)

Touch my body, put me on the floor, wrestle me around, play with me some more.

I'm glad I'm not alone! My friends don't seem to understand how it feels because they are naturals
at socialising. Don't feel like you're isolated okay, you still have this wonderful community!

I'm highly social like your friends but still. They could possibly be related psychologically.

Oh you! cʕ•ᴥ•cʔ

As long as it's someone I know well, I don't mind it. If I don't know you or I know you only a little bit, I'm not really a fan of getting all touchy.

I don't mind hugging and all, but if it's overboard I get uncomfortable and kindly ask the person doing the touching to stop.

That's the same for me! :D It's really hard to hug people that I'm not so close to... although I barely have people that are close to me... I am a lonely boy.

Ehhh. Depends on who it is.
If I don't trust you, please stay away.
If I do trust you, there are still strict boundaries. I will hurt you if you ignore them. Even if you're just joking around.

So long as you don't grab my junk, I'm perfectly fine. That goes to both guys and girls. Lol

Seriously, though, I really couldn't care less. As long as I'm not being harassed, that is. I've played a lot of contact games in my day Laptag! so I've gotten quite used to being physical.

Ahahah, you'd be surprised how many of my little brothers friends try and grab me inappropriately. It wouldn't be so bad if they weren't 13.

I don't mind. Depends what kind of physical contact though. I mean if some girl just comes up to me and punches me in the face then yeah I'll be pissed. If someone is just touching my arm or something then it's all good.

I suppose it's situational. At school, all the guys would greet each other with handshakes and whatnot, and I'm alright with that. With girls (and ok, guys too), I'm always down for hugs. Nothing wrong with a good hug!

That being said, there's always the flipside... When creepy teachers would put their hand on your shoulder, or those people who just make you feel uncomfortable altogether. Lines drawn ._.

I don't really like physical contact with anyone except if it's my relative. I'm not used to the skin contact, even if it's my best friend. Though if it's my crush and our arms accidentally brush against each other, I'll be like, I'm never going to take a bath ever again.

It depends on who the person is. If it's a stranger, I'll be extremely uncomfortable because..well, it's someone who I don't know with possible bad intentions and makes me very insecure. Unless it's completely accidental like a slight brush or a bump, then I don't really mind I guess. If it's someone I know though, I don't mind either. But if that person is one of those touchy feely types and constantly touches me, especially my hair, that's a totally different story. I need my personal space. I love hugs though! :3 Family and friends access only, of course.

If it's with a friend then I don't mind it at all, playful touching that is lol but sometimes I get wrestled by two at once and end up bruised lol. |: people like to poke my sides because I'm really jumpy and I make some weird high pitched squeak when I get my sides poked ahahahah. However if it's someone I don't know, or someone who has a crush on me and is doing it on purpose, then no, i'd escape the situation. :/ I rarely feel comfortable round random people anyway.

Sad to say, no. As much as I would try to at least come to terms with being okay with physical contact, the sad truth is that I'm really not. Hugs are fine, depending on who it is, though I do admit it's rather really awkward since I rarely give/receive hugs in the first place. .__.

If it's out of courtesy, then sure. If it's out of other interests and I don't seem consenting then please no.

I despise when random people try to hug me, and even go to the effort of avoiding them, though contact on a level outside of random hugs doesn't really bother me at all.
