After coming up with that title, it occured to me how many ways it could be taken lol.
In this one I’m speaking of the featherlight way that the more feminine beings amoung us greet and show affection towards one another.
Our current curcumstances have limited much if this and I’ve found through conversations that that loss on its own has added quite a bit of stress for many who are very used to, and now craving the simple affectionate act of touching their friends and loved ones.
Theres obviously the hug, some use just a simple arms embrace while others are full body. Some others include lightly touching of the forearm or wrist whilst saying the others name, laying a hand on a shoulder while having a personal discussion, standing behind another and putting a their hands on both shoulders for an introduction, “ladies, this is my good friend Olivia*”.
Most of us should already know that arms on hips is often not a sign of affection.
It always seems to be done with such honest feelings, while of the slightest actual contact, intimate and almost sensual. Some of my female friends have blessed me with being included in these actions. I miss it and can hardly wait and hope that it returns.
The “other” genders lol ultra firm handshakes, bone cracking bearhugs, fist bumps, and chest bumps(argh) just don’t compare.
The ongoing virtual hugs from Katey, and many other girls here helps to get us through
