Some people like being touched . Touch is comforting, intimate, and can make a person feel happy and safe . Being touched by someone can make a person smile, cheer them up for one minute, and just turn a bad day around . It is even said that a person will heal faster with touch . Whenever I communicate with others, I am typically a toucher . Whether it is to playful touch or negative affect , I frequently express my emotions through touching . I consider myself to be more of a toucher than others , but I do not think that I over do it . One time I definitely do not like to be touched is if I am sleeping. I tend to think of that as my “me” time and do not want to be disturbed . Another touch that makes me feel uncomfortable is if someone tickles me . I go absolutely crazy if someone does this to me . Even though I laugh while it happens, I still hate it! If I see that someone feels uncomfortable with my friendly touching, then I tend to back off . Growing up, I was always given affection or disciplined through touching so I have always thought that touching is a natural habit and is necessary for us to learn and grow . Most people that I touch frequently are people that I have close relationships with such as my friends and romantic partner .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
