Life as an unaffectionate person

Hi, I’m Anja and I don’t like being touched. Here’s what it’s like being me.

High school was a bit awkward

I went to a really huggy high school. It was a trying time for me, but I survived.

Varsity was a bit awkward

Then I went to varsity and I was introduced to the hugkiss.

Oh dear Lord. The hugkiss.

I have so many embarrassing memories of accidentally head butting people because they went in for a cheek kiss, while I went in for a hug.

I also basically transformed into an owl because of the cheek kiss.

I’m a horror to console

What’s your first instinct when someone is crying? To give them a hug.

Except, I don’t like hugs. So what do you do with someone like me? WHAT DO YOU DO?

Flashback to that time I was crying hysterically about my camera being stolen at a night club, and my friend didn’t know how to comfort me, so all she said was: “Toemaar wat Anja, ten minste is jou hare baie mooi.”

And I’m even worse at consoling other people

I see you’re sad, so here’s an awkward pat on the back and an inappropriate joke because I don’t really know what else to do.

Massages stress me out

This has made me an outcast my whole adult life, but…

I CAN’T STAND MASSAGES. I can’t.

I went for one on my 22nd birthday, and I felt so violated afterwards that I had myself a lekker birthday cry in my car on the way home.

I find PDA really rude

EWWWWWWWW

And my boyfriend is always really shocked when I want PDA

Me: *Reaches for his hand*

Him: giphy

I can’t watch romantic movies

PROBABLY BECAUSE YOU HAVE A POLTERGEIST.

 I show affection in other ways

You won’t get hugs all the time, but you will get a tag in a Mean Girls meme on Facebook saying: “This made me think of you.”

And despite all of this, I will ALWAYS have your back

Loyalty isn’t measured in affection. I’ll have your back until the very end. I just don’t want to hug it all the time.

    Completely understand you! Growing up in a very huggy kissy family was tough, and ps I freak the hell out during a massage

    Haha. Love this. I am the complete opposite, but have friends who are also unaffectionate so I get it (I think). Imagine how boring life would be if we were all the same. x
