    It is amazing just how much you do NEED touch. Physical touch is my No. 1 Love Language (Gary Chapman’s “5 Love Languages”). Still with my unfaithful wife and going on 5 months of out in-house separation trying to work things out. She still doles out hugs and kisses to our kids but we never hug, kiss, hold hands, snuggle and especially have no sexual intimacy, which has just dried up my soul. Zero touch just re-emphasizes the hurt and pain daily.

      I think we’re all touch deprived in modern American culture, especially men. It somehow all became linked to sex and then became labeled shameful. I hope you find a path through this soon. You’re in a difficult place.

    Such powerful words. I just love how you explained it, so deep and introspective. Thank you for sharing.
