My family don't like that I'm more affectionate to my friends than with them. Watch

    I care about my family, I just don't touch them often.

    I hug my mother twice a year.

    I told my father that I will hug him, once a year either on Father's day or his birthday.

    I've not hugged either of my sisters since 2012.

    One of my cousins wants to hug me, I told her that I will hug her before she turns 40, she's 17 right now.

    I told my 8 year old cousin that I would hug her when she's 16.

    I don't really have any desire to hug any of them.

    When it comes to my friends, I hug them every time I see them, I love them so much, I love spending time with them!

    My family don't like this because "They're strangers to them".

    They're not strangers to me, they're my close friends and I have a lot of love for them.

    My mother told me that my grandmother feels sad that I don't hug her but she has her other grandchildren who can do all the hugging for me.

    I don't like the idea of touching almost all humans. (Cats are fine, I'll happily touch any cat and let any cat touch me! <3)

    My uncle told me that he wants to hug me which I don't understand because of how he acted when my cousin was crying...

    I also shake the hand of one of my best friends' mother because I have a lot of respect for her as she's my best friend's mother. My father wants to shake my hand which I don't understand, it's pointless to me and it's far too much touching...
