I've been 'alone' for a long time now, minus the very occasional fling.
A new guy has just moved into our household who is very tactile- lots of cuddling, hugging, touching, physical intimacy generally. He's quite the womaniser actually, and very physical with most people- I'm detaching myself from this and just enjoying the physical closeness though, with no strings or expectations- nothing better than having someone to cuddle, wrap their arms around you on the sofa, etc...
What has amazed me is my absolute craving for this sort of physical attention. I derive nothing sexual from it, but the closeness is just so nourishing! I had no idea how deprived from physical contact I've been!
