    Are you uncomfortable when friends of the same sex are "touchy feely" with you?

    Are you uncomfortable when friends of the same sex are "touchy feely" with you?

    Do you ever have other friends who are very clingy and want some sort of reassurance that you're their bestest bud? Like, other dudes want some kind of emotional connection with you?

    Personally I get creeped out. I'm trying to understand where the other personalities stand on this. I know being ISTP has some bit to blame for this.

    Not at all. Several of my same sex friends are very "hands on." It doesn't bother me at all. It does bother a few other friends who are not touchy feely at all. Myself and another ESTP friend of mine sometimes make games out of seeing how uncomfortable we can make other people.

    I give strangers hugs and ALWAYS touch people I'm talking to. Some people don't mind, and it makes others uncomfortable. Most of the time I adjust my contact level if they're visibly put off by it... unless it's someone who I find fun to torment.

    Depends on your definition of "Touchy Feely", OP.

    Ditto

    I just wanted to make this an epic "ditto" answer but apparently that is not possible because I need more characters. Poo.

    Yes...I don't get touchy-feely people. NO TOUCHY. I'm like, get off of me. lol

    Especially when people run their grubby fingers through my hair.

    "Dude...hands off the 'do."

    Depends on who the other person is doing the touching....but no, it doesn't freak me out or anything. I greet people I like with hugs as well and I am very affectionate with my daughters. I thought that was because I am half italian though.

    Couple months too late but hey I'll post anyway and see if it picks up again lol it depends on your definition of touchy feely. As a child and coming from a european background I never had a problem hugging members of the same sex. Just because you hug someone and you desire to hug someone of the same sex doesn't mean you have latent same sex tendencies. But I live in a western english country and there is a widespread view in english countries that 'bromance' is taboo and forbidden, it makes you weak and effeminate, and hence it's frowned upon but in european countries it's quite mainstream. I went through a period where I kept this down to a minimum out of fear of being insulted or teased. But then I figured ah fuck it, fear of touching is there problem, people can think what they want, if your a good friend and I like you, then I'll hug you, gender is irrelevant.

    I don't care. Although I do examine their past history, and if any behaviors of the past suggest they are homo I act out a pre-thought skit that would suggest 'I am not interested", doing my best to adhere to their inferior social conventions to make sure the scenario is accurate to their belief system.
