I am a toucher. For the most part! I touch people's hands and their shoulders and their upper backs. It is my way of conveying that "I care." I like to hug and I like to be hugged. For the most part.
But I also like my personal space. So once you hug me, then I need for you to take a step back. I don't like people to be 'up in my face', that is just the way that I am.
When I am with my husband, I touch him. He likes me to hold his hand. He likes to lay his hand on my arm or my leg. He likes to know that I am next to him. And that is okay!!
If you ever visit me and are standing too close and I take a step away, I hope that you are not offended. I just like my space! But please, do offer me a hug!
