Don't touch me - February 1st 2011, 04:28 AM

I don't know why, but I have such a aversion to being touched by my family, My mom is half and half sometimes I am fine with it but sometimes I don't. I like to hug my brother but nothing else.

But my Dad, I don't know how to explain it I just don't like it when he touches me.

Are there certain types of touching that make you feel more uncomfortable? Sometimes, teenage girls don't want full-body hugs from adult men... it may feel inappropriate to them, even if it's not sexual in any way whatsoever. You may also be going through a phase where you don't want to be constantly showered with affection from your parents. You don't want to feel like a little kid, and hugging you may seem somewhat condescending. This is all just speculation, of course... I encourage you to think about what exactly bothers you about being touched by your parents, though, so you can discuss this with them! =)

Hey Trina,

I think that's normal. One of my best friends has a huge aversion to being touched; I'm pretty sure she'd freak out if any of her friends tried to give her a hug.

I think you're fine. Nothing to worry about.


"Want to know a secret?

You are beautiful.

Black, white, gay, straight, bisexual. Whether you are smart or quiet or impossibly in love with your best friend, someone out there cherishes your smile and gets butterflies when you walk into a room.

Someone out there can't stop thinking about you. You Are Beautiful. Don't ever believe differently."

If you ever want someone to talk to, about absolutely anything, feel free to inbox me!

I'm totally fine with my friends touching me, and I am usually a very touchy, huggy person. Except theres one guy I don't like touching me.

I'm fine with hugging me in public..

I don't like being touched either! It's weird.

I don't like hugging my mom. I don't hug anyone in my family very much.

That's so weird. What about your friends?
