Only by close friends/family, and that's it. And my future significant other, of course.

I hate anyone else touching me, especially if they're being unpredictable about it.

I've had this happen to me multiple times, and it's not fun.

i'm thousands of miles and many regretful words away from having someone who'd hug me right now.

I am currently seeing Duinkerken: I'm liking it like it is.

I love lapis lazuli.

Being touched has many meanings to humans.

There is emotional touch which is derived from watching romance movies that have a sad ending....yadda yadda yadda you get the picture.

There is the physical touch which is giving someone a handshake, giving someone a pat on the back, giving someone a hug because you care.

There is the touch that implies to sexual touching. This is a way for couples to share for each other with whom you love and make love to. Especially giving felatio. A lot of that is done with the willingness to give and as long as each person is giving the allowance to do so.

Basically the questionaire should imply to not just what it says, but you have to look at the outer ring of situations. :D
