thoughts on touch, talking, and love 11/3/2013

To me, I think touch is so powerful. It doesn’t have to be sexual to be powerful. Maybe, hmm, what’s the word… sensual; not in a turn someone on type of way, but in the way that you are showing your loving and tender presence. Many people underestimate the power of touch and the effect it has on it. Touch releases happy feelings. The feeling of serenity, and safety, and probably more. It allows you to make closer friendships. No one probably can describe a close friendship in which there was no occasion that they hugged or touched this person. When you go to the online archives for the endless ways of “how to flirt” or “how to show someone that you like them”, it almost always will suggest that you touch them in some shape or form. That’s how we live; touching indicates closeness. Cuddling, to me, gives feelings of comfort. But what happens when you don’t have cuddling? What happens when you don’t even get small touches that could lead to cuddling? Now this is just my own personal opinion, but I feel that the lack of touch can drain you if it is prolonged for too long. To be touched, in a completely innocent and loving way, it feels beautiful. There are some people out there who can say “I can’t even remember the last time I was touched in that way”
