Honestly, nothing gets better than Friends. There are 236 episodes and that just isn't enough. So this year, instead of getting your friends something that they will only appreciate a little bit, buy them something that they will love. Friends is the way to anybody's heart these days!
We currently live in a world where EVERYONE LIKES TO TOUCH EACH OTHER. People enjoy hugs, high fives, tapping others on the shoulder, pokes, ect. For someone like you and me (I'm assuming you too since you clicked on this article), this is the WORST thing in the world. Whenever I think of someone touching me (even just a poke) without my permission my reaction is like Sofia Vergara in Modern Family.
I mean, when I take that love languages quiz, physical touch is always on the bottom of my preferences. So I thought to my self, you know I can't be the only person in the world that hates physical touching. So here are 11 things every person who hates physical touch will understand:
1. When people tickle you
I don't care that it's just for fun and jokes; I'm not laughing because I want to, you are literally forcing me to laugh. I hate you, get your greasy hands off of me before I make you get them off of me.
2. When people think they need to tap your shoulder to get your attention
As if simply saying "Hey" followed by my name wasn't enough. I don't need your grubby little fingers touching me. Now I'm annoyed with you before this conversation even started, what do you want?
3. When someone you barely know reaches in for a hug
I don't know who the heck you're thinking you're about to hug because it sure isn't going to be me. Hugs are reserved for people I know well and like, not you. Okay release me now, I am not enjoying this. LET ME GO.
4. When people tell you that you aren't an affectionate person
5. When someone is in your personal space
We could be best friends, we could be complete strangers. We could be lovers, I could hate your guts. We could be in private, we could be in public. I don't care what the situation is, if you're in my personal space uninvited GET OUT. There is no reason to be so close to me unwarranted.
6. You don't know how to comfort people
When you see an upset loved one, most people think they you should comfort then by pulling them into a long lasting hug. But, that's the kind of things that your nightmares are literally made out of. So, you stand there confused how you should comfort your friend/relative while also not sacrificing your touch moral code.
7. When people say you "look like you could use a hug"
8. When you're hugging someone wondering how soon you can release
Please end my suffering.
9. When you arrive at a social gathering and people rush to greet you with hugs
10. When you try to leave a social gathering by just waving to get out of goodbye hugs
Please no one make me hug you.
11. That one person who is allowed to hug you/touch you
This person, typically a significant other or best friend, gets to break all the "no touch" rules and we gladly accept their hugs and cuddles and public displays of affection. But only them, no one can copy them.
This is it early 2000's babies, a compilation finally made for you. This list is loaded with things that will make you swoon with nostalgia.
