I like for my husband to come up behind me and put his arms around me or just hold my hand. My husband doesn't like to be touched. He says it's hot an pushes me off. If I try to hold his hand, he'll do it for about 10 seconds and that's it. I've talked to him about it before but it doesn't change. I feel like that's an important part of a relationship. FYI, we've been together over 19 years.

I feel that intimacy is very important - I'm affectionate.

I love kissing, holding hands, cuddling, and being poked with his light saber (does that count)?

I feel very lucky. My husband is a very affectionate and loving man. He's always telling me im the best thing that has happened to him, and how he thinks im sexy. Even though i dont feel that way. But i reframe from saying so, because honestly, i dont want it to stop. lol. We've been together 6 years.

No, I don't like to be touched by my husband. Other guys ... well, I better just shut my mouth before I ruin my respectable image.

My SO is very affectionate at home...hugging, kissing, cuddling. I love it! However, in public, there is absolutely no PDA.

I agree. I love holding hands, cuddling on the couch, having a guy put his hand on my back as we walk through a doorway, etc. Most of my ex-boyfriends have been affectionate like this and I don't think I'd settle for less.
