Bernard, when he comforts me, hugs me and kisses me on top of my head. I don't like admitting that I like it but I do.

There's a very few number of people that I'll let hug me with aplomb. That's Amy, my siblings, and kids. That's it. I hate it when Brad or family hugs me, but Connor, Miriam, and Bernard are fine.

I've been so tired lately.

I'm gonna miss Connor and Miriam a lot.

I feel similarly about hugs and contact. I only have 3 friends I let hug me and will hug back. Hugs with family or anyone else is uncomfortable. I hate obligation hugs with family and stuff. Touching people is just awkward. Nothing is worse than those people that like to cheek kiss with hugs though. Ugh. But I find hugging for comfort awkward and only hug when greeting or parting.

I can only imagine how hard it must be separating from the few people you really feel comfortable and close with. Do you have any ideas for what you're gonna do when they're gone?

Sorry life's been tough for you lately.

I'm similar with physical contact - can't stand strangers touching me, don't like unexpected or prolonged contact but hugs can be nice. I think it somehow depends on how much a family hugs when a person is growing up - I usually see most people within the same family either big on hugs or avoiding physical contact. My family is definitely of the no-touchy sort.

OvO ...! Oh my gosh!!! This whole comic is cute! ALL OF IT IS. JUST. SO. CUTE. >w< <3 <3 <3 Virtual hugs to you and all of your family! Wheee! \>w</ <3 <3 <3
Aww, I sort of understand how you feel about your little sister and brother leaving. TAT I'm going to feel pretty conflicted if my baby bro (lol, he hates it when I call him that) ever decides to move out, but that's just life yanno? Siiiiiiiiiigh. OTL Thankfully my younger bro has no plans to do so any time soon probably cause we're both happy single-somethings. Lol. XD Since I'm the older one, I probably will be the first to get married but my brother's always welcome to stay (screw what my future hubby thinks)! >w</ Lol. My brother ain't no freeloader!
As for my other two roomies, one of them is expected to move out sometime next year cause he and his girlfriend is finally planning on getting a house together. Going to miss that guy, even though we still plan to meet up when our schedules aren't crazy. He cracks me up! XD Hope Miriam and Connor still make time to visit you throughout the year! >:
As for me, most of my relatives are pretty huggy and some of them even kiss guests as greeting. So me and bro kinda had no choice but to deal with that kinda of thing. =w=;;; Relatives: "HUG ME OR DIE!" XD Lol. It's actually considered SUPER RUDE to most of my family if somebody doesn't hug one another as greeting, even if you really, really, REALLY hate the person. =w=;; Learned this the hard way, obviously. ;P Blah.
Sorry to hear that work's been a whole heck of garbage to you! DX My workplace's kind of rocky too actually ever since we switched managers and the new guy's is obviously the kind always trying to over-prove himself and kiss-ass to higher-ups by always blaming HIS mistakes on my department/others! -____- Loser probably only got the job cause his dad is one of the higher-ups. I'd be more sympathetic to his family pressure if he wasn't such a DICK about it to my friends/coworkers. >_<** You probably know what types I'm talking about. :/ Smh. Some of my coworkers are planning on screwing him over when it comes to our annual performance evaluations, but who knows if that'll work or what'll happen until then. >3> Hopefully he'll mellow out?? Idk.
We can survive our work woes together David!!! >A</ SOLIDARITY!!!

Man, that's cute. I don't like hugs or contact. Unless it's like, certain people. Some friends get contact, other's get don't touch me.

You not sleeping well, with the tiredness?

And I'm sure they'll miss you as well, and have told you as much.

@Tristan232: I'm probably gonna move in with Bernard. My lease is ending not too soon after they leave so it won't be so bad. I look forward to moving in with Bernard and being around my nephew.

@Oly-RRR: Thanks.

For sure, my family is also not big on contact but everyone at work hugs all the time. Pain in my ass.

@lani: Haha, glad to hear you and your brother will be hanging around each other for a while longer.

Just 'cause you're older doesn't mean you'll get married first, look at me. I'm kidding. Haha, sounds like you're Bernard all right.

It's hard to say if Miriam and Connor will have time to visit, haha. Miriam will try but it seems she needs to start getting to know Ajeet's family. Connor probably won't be bale to, he's going overseas so I doubt I'll get to see him again anytime soon. I don't mind, those two have dreams they want to pursue and I have my own.

Hahaha. I'm thankful my family is the type to never touch.

Wow, that guy sounds like a shitstain. I had one guy at work, someone mentioned my child abuse to him, and he's taken it upon himself to try to one up me with his old child abuse stories and I cannot fathom the mentality of a person that persists in such a manner. Really? If you want to think of yourself as this tragic figure, go fucking right ahead, don't you dare try to lessen people's experience. Fucking shit asswipe.

Haha, well, good luck with that. I'm more of the, "I have more important things to do with my life than obsess over some jackass". But I also understand the feeling of obsessively thinking of ways to wreck a person's life. Keep me up to date on that.

Haha. Thanks, solidarity.

@Reealt: I just haven't had time to sleep. The nightmares finally stopped but that's probably just 'cause I haven't had time to actually sleep, haha.

in my family im the only hugger
my brothers hate it when i do it and push me away but i just love to show affection that way
my mom always hugs me back and dad as well and my little half brother who loves me like a weird idol.
It does me more good for me than it does for them
i hug so i can feel loved because its hard for me to eephatize /i wrote that wrong right?) with my family. So physical contact has always been my way to ask for affection


roxjey February 28th, 2015, 9:42 pm

i would hug the hell out of you btw! XD of course with permission lol


SmallishBird March 2nd, 2015, 7:13 pm

People who give good hugs are gifts to this world I swear.

I'm kinda like you though, I don't like people touching me unless they're very close to me. Crowds are hell, haha.


daviddoesntgetit March 6th, 2015, 8:21 pm

@roxjey: Whatever works for you, haha.

Haha, never hug me but thanks for the offer.

@SmallishBird: They are great and yes, crowds are the worst.
