Sometimes when I am out and about, people will come up to me and touch my hair. This isn't so disconcerting when they've already said hello and complimented me on my hair or asked me what product I use or ask me if it's my natural hair... but there have been times where I have been standing in line and the person behind me will touch my hair (I can feel it) or bounce a curl without even saying anything and all I can think is: "Why are you touching me?" The people who approach me to touch my hair are usually women. Do you feel the urge to touch people in public for any reason? Why so? Why are these people popping my personal bubble >_<
When I see a guy with curly hair, yes, I do get the urge to run my fingers through his hair. It's because I think it's attractive. Are you telling me it would be socially acceptable for me to start doing that to strangers? lol
That reminds me of when my sister was pregnant with my nephew. Random women would walk up to her and touch her stomach before saying anything. It made her so uncomfortable. I'm not sure which is worse, feeling up a stranger's stomach before asking if it's okay, or playing with someone's hair without any intention of speaking to them at all.
I've had to learn to curb the urge to touch people in public. When I was young, and somewhat naive, whenever I'd notice an attractive girl at the supermarket, I'd wait until she stopped to look at something, and then begin rubbing her thigh and licking her face. While this seemed perfectly natural to me, it wasn't at all well received. After several fines, and one particularly long and unpleasant jail stay, I learned to settle for the occasional handshake.
Your hair is quite gorgeous dear. I might have trouble keeping my hands to myself too!=P Nah, I don't go around feeling up people, unless they asked me to prior to the feelin' up. I have this issue though when I shave my head, apparently it is good luck to rub the head of a bald person=\ Unleash the redhead inside and put the smackdown on them! >.< =P
No, I still follow the Golden Rule they taught to me in kindergarten, which, at my advanced age of 28, surprised I even still remember. I keep my hands to myself. Although, I have been grabbed by the arm at one point, and been told that I had the most beautiful eyes, which is indeed a great compliment, but why grab me and pull me aside to tell me that?
I do feel an urge to touch random peoples hair! its only if they have really cool hair though (like afros). I just feel attracted to hair, and yeah, I know it sounds creepy, but, sometimes its just that random "I WANT TO TOUCH YOUR HEAD" feeling =) you probably have cool hair!
