A Touchy Subject (Part One)

Put delicately, I have what one might call a “highly developed sense of personal space.”

Put casually, I don’t like feeling crowded.

Put bluntly, don’t touch me unless I know you extremely well . . . and maybe not even then.

Mind you, I also have a fairly well-developed sense of politeness (if only so I can ignore it when I so choose), so I can shake hands with a smile, and have adapted fairly well to the South Florida custom of hugs and cheek kisses.

Sometimes it’s more effort than others though.

    Aha! Yes, we kiss and hug down here!! But….not to everyone though….I am actually VERY selective. So, if I kiss/hug YOU is because you are my true friend 🙂

    In Argentina, men gives a kiss (on each cheek) to other men!! NOW, THAT’S disgusting 😛

    -chuckle- Well . . . I always do my best to accept the gesture in the spirit it is intended, and would do so even in Argentina. 😉
