Why do men always feel the need to touch me?
Lately I have noticed that when I am at work especially (school setting) my male coworkers feel the need to TOUCH me. I was walking and the custodian opened the door for me. He also felt the need to guide me into the cafeteria with his hand on my back. The Vice Principal also touches my back or shoulder in passing, with a hey sweetie...this is just a couple examples of many even outside of work. They all do this thing where they wink at me at random times. WHAT DOES THIS STUFF MEAN?...not that it is a cultural thing but I have noticed NOT all BUT majority of these men are white...At first I thought they view me as a sweet young woman...I am only 106lbs so I have the childlike similarities...but its been happening so much lately. Strange.

i guess your just a ... fun person to touch? you never mentioned your thoughts or feelings about this. Does it bother you? or not? This seems like a self-perspective kind of problem. I'd feel great if all the cute single girls randomly touched me. Not to sound perverted or anything. I think it would be easier to date women. However, the other day this ridiculously adorable girl gave me a bear hug. Didn't even know her. It's about how the person who is being touched feels about their environment.

Trust me, I'm a real man and I'm going to tell you exactly why they do it. They are attracted to you and the closest they can get to fucking you is to touch you in the ways they are touching u, in other words, socially acceptable ways. I know this creeps you out, but that's why they do it
