Yeah, I know how you feel. My mother's an EIGHT/ONE combo, not exactly into that sort of thing. I didn't get hugged for as long as I could remember. In my society everyone was very repressed and inhibited - no touching.........it was like living in an emotional siberia. Bless G-d I got out of there. I am still alone and CRAVING for physical touch but at least I've found friends who do know how to hug. I actually read in a book about 'touch' that it has been scientifically proven that touch to humans can heal. Having been through a very traumatic life - I come from an abusive background........parents divorced and I divorced too after I fell in with a abusive guy.........I recognise the importance of touch and feel that it actually heals me to get touched. It's also a good idea if you live alone to get a massage.
Good luck and enjoy!
hugs and much love,\
