Yeah, tickling is kind of creepy...I never understood why anyone would think it is fun or funny to be tickled...seems like torture or something.
I've never liked it. It's a boundary issue for me. I get that some people think it's fun, so when they try it once, I'll pull back and tell them to stop. When they don't, it really sets me off.

I had a boyfriend who did it all the time, until I got really angry and he then said I was overreacting. I only asked his dumb ass 30 times not to do it. So, when I lost my cool, I had anger issues....lol.

I told him I really don't like being tickled. He then reminded me that I said laughter was important, but now I'm saying I don't like being tickled so I need to make up my mind and "stick to the story".

I lost interest and ended the conversation. Stupid people don't make me laugh.
Sounds like he just wished he could touch you. He likes you.

For sure it is an immature approach to testing the water on how you react to him touching you. You probably made the right choice on losing interest.

It would have been a lot easier if they had treated me like crap from the very begining. When people change like that on you it makes you wonder what YOU did. I spent years trying to figure out WHY before I finally just backed away completely. I still dont know why but I no longer care so we be fine now.

I dont think they would appreciate this but theyve given me some very amusing tales to relate.

LOL why would he tickle you other than to make you laugh??

My parents tickled me when I was younger and it was really really funny.

It's not that he meant harm when he did it the first time. I laughed, because it tickled, but I asked him not to do it because I don't like it. When he continues to do so after I have asked him nicely and repeatedly to stop, he is not being very respectful. Some people just don't understand nice.

LOL ETA: That was a different incident. Gawd, I can't keep up today. The guy I was referring to in the posting above this, it seemed, was trying to open up a level of comfort with regards to sexual discussion - because he also said something about tickling me with his tongue....
