if someone has asked you not to touch them, even (especially) if they’re someone close to you, please respect that. sometimes touch feels really invasive and uncomfortable, and it’s so, so horrible to say to someone please don’t touch me, and only to have them laugh, make a joke, and then poke and prod and tickle me until I feel like tearing my own skin off
so just. don’t touch people who’ve already told you not to. no matter how close you are to them.
