How comfortable are you when it comes to physical contact with other people?

    Pretty much not comfortable at all. I really don't like being touched at all when I don't control it. If I'm doing the touching, that's okay. It's really difficult sometimes. :x

    I don't mind it if I don't mind you touching me. This older woman at work touches me a lot and it makes me really uncomfortable. I think she's a cougar.

    I don't like being touched at all. I'm so skittish, even when my arm brushes against someone else's arm. I don't even like standing in my kitchen when there are 3+ people. Don't enter my space. D: Also, don't touch my pillow.

      I don't mind physical contact so long as I know the person. Don't even need to know them very well. Even if I know your name and we've talked for five minutes, I'm fine with you hugging me or something. Having total strangers touch me on purpose or even accidentally is pretty creepy, though. I have a really thin line but it's still there.

      I have a huge personal bubble. No touchie at all. Do not like. There are a few exceptions, but for the most part, no.

      I actually don't even like people standing close to me if I can help it. :(

        It all depends on who it is and where and all of that. Like my co-workers are all girls and one of them gets really close to you if she talks to you, but I get along really well with her so I don't mind. If it's somebody I don't know well I don't want them like within a foot of me, let alone touching me.

        I'm always all over my boyfriend, though ;b

          I'm a dancer, physical contact is a must. That being said outside of the studio I am a lot more awkward about physical contact and will try to avoid it unless I am with people I am close to and know well. I prefer to be the initiator than to have random physical contact thrust upon me.

            I'm okay with it if I'm friends with the person, or they're family. Otherwise, it's just awkward, & I'm like "no. No touchy." It also sort of depends on the situation.

              If we're at a decent level of friendship and you're cool with it I will be up on you all the time. I love having physical contact with people. Not in a sexy way, just in a companionship way. That people like and trust me enough to let me drag them around, lay on them, hug-cuddle them out of nowhere, push them around, play with their hands, put my hands on their waist and move them aside instead of saying "'scuse me"- I love that. I love that my friends like that sort of contact and that some who initially didn't like it eventually became comfortable enough to at least indulge me.

              With people I don't know as well but am becoming friends with, it usually will be me that initiates physical contact. Poking, casual hugs, messing with hair, playing with hands. If people shy away from it I'll leave them be until we know each other better and they're more comfortable with it. Tbh though- and I know this is weird after just saying that- I get a little nervous if someone else initiates contact. What are their reasons for touching me? What do they want from me? If we're friends I just accept it mostly but it's still weird for me not to initiate that kind of behaviour.

              Strangers do not touch me oh my god just get away I want to have a bubble extending at least a foot from me at all times augh. Most people are fairly polite about it here- I have to take public transport a lot and this is the kind of place where everyone keeps a row or seat in between each other until not possible. And if you have to sit immediately next to someone then you try your hardest not to touch them in any way because that's impolite. Except sometimes you get crazies on like the drunk evangelists who plop down in the middle of a group and start preaching. Or that one dude who like shifted close to me and was fondling my belt loops that was weird as ****.

              Er yeah anyway strangers no touchy everyone else I will drape myself on you if you let me.

                I love it. In high school, me and my friends were those people who'd hug every time we saw each other. I guess that kinda opened me up to being touched by whoever and not freaking out. I don't mind a pat on the back, or a hand on the shoulder, just those small displays of confidence and warmth. Just don't go overboard with it, or do it all the time if there is no familiarity there. Girls with a crush are famous for that!

                  I don't mind really.

                  I think its only ever bothered me once, but I used to work in an environment where all the guys and girls were forever ass-grabbing. One of the other workers used to nibble my ear and I his manager (I'm also a guy). Bit weird, but everyone was comfortable like that - it made for an amazing work atmosphere.

                  Prior to that, I played Rugby. I workout and I wanted to be in the wrestling business since forever. My dad is in medicine, so he usually checks me out if I have a problem rather than me pay for a doctor, but when I do, I'm quite free about the physical necessity of these things.

                    If you touch me and you get a slap (if you can help it A.K.A:non special needs person). I hate being touched.

                      Not really that bothered. I prefer it when people don't randomly touch me for no reason, but sometimes it can't be helped if it was an accident.

                      If it's done on purpose without mutual agreement, then I do mind, because it's rude. However, the accidental bump on occasion is okay, as long as the person didn't really mean to touch me and acknowledge it right away.

                          Generally not a huge fan of physical contact unless it's a brawl, in which case I'll throw down.

                            I dont really like being touched even when someone touches my hair. Being touched often makes me uncomfortable and can be annoying to me.

                              I'm fine with it, as long as I don't not like the person.

                              If it's like a random person touching me, then I kind of mind it only because I dont know the person. If I know the person, I don't mind it much.

                              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.
                              let's meet again
                              in the next life
