What’s your reaction to the word “touch”?
Sighing and wishing you were touched more often?
I refer to non-se%ual touch.
Most of us experience touch daily: handshakes, pats on the back, hugs, someone putting change into our hand.
Recently read an online (www.simpletoremember.com) article about the subtle, powerful force of touch.
The author described a restaurant server who consistently received 30% more in tips than his coworkers. The difference between him and others? He would touch the patron with a pat on the back, a touch on the shoulder, a casual handshake.
His touch left patrons feeling warmth towards him they might not have felt otherwise.
Manipulative, or just a natural act? Don’t know.
What I do know is, if you:
- like being touched by others;
- crave your sweetheart’s touch;
- find yourself reaching out to touch or be touched,
may know your preferred way of being romanced – touch.
The desire to touch or be touched can subtly manifest itself.
I began using this term several years ago to describe the stronger than usual desire or need to touch or be touched.
It started with friends one evening. I became aware I was touching, in a non-se%ual manner, more frequently than usual. I’m an admitted touch’r. Yet this evening, and other evenings, I touched more frequently than usual. I experienced “Skin Hunger”.
Can you relate?
Note: Touch is important to those who prefer to be romanced with touch.
Suggestion: Quietly observe your sweetheart. Does your sweetheart frequently touch you or melt in your arms? Does the term “Skin Hunger” fit? Chances are good, of the four major ways of being romance, your sweetheart’s is probably touch.
Mission: Romance your sweetheart by reaching out, giving a hug, running your fingers through your sweetheart’s hair, sitting close enough to touch. These gifts will “touch” your sweetheart’s heart and romance will stay alive.
Let me know if you enjoy this type of touching. Robert
