            well technically speaking marriage was more of a connections thing before to strengthen both families. If divorce did happen women would not actually take everything in fact most of the time they got fuck all and went back to living with their family. Now I dont know exactly when the law changed to be that way ,but it was not like that before

        Did she start doing heroin because your parents divorced or because she got divorced? Also, that's tragic. I overdosed about 5 times while I was an active user, it scares the shit out of people.

      Physical contact is not a need. I've gone years without sex or even touching another person. Albeit, it's mainly due to communism, but I have absolutely killed it regardless of much touching of people I've had. This is the same caliber of shit that trannies cite. You'll get more benefits from actually working out and having a healthy diet/supplementation than having sex (which is great, but overrated and disgustingly discussed when you do start having it). You are making a personal choice to remain an incel by being acting like a female who thinks they deserve something.

      I am the same. I am so uncomfortable with physical touch. The only people I have been comfortable with phisical touch is with the few girlfriends I had. And I really liked it and often crave it.
      I have great parents and love them but always felt uncomfortable hugging or displaying phisical affection with them. Or anyone else for that matter.

        I'm the same, except I feel just hollow. I just don't connect with people on a physical level, not on a spiritual either for what it's worth.

        I hate kissing and hugs, they make me feel empty. In fact, I think kissing is disgusting. Hugs just feel forced and unconfortable. Spooning and someone laying on your chest is pretty nice.

      Look for a professional cuddler

      My ex was a weirdo and had even weirder friends. One of them was a lady that did healing sessions with people. Something with reiki or some shit to get rid of people's PTSD. So her friend gets this client and I forget the exact details but after some therapy she suggests the client sucking on her titties might help out. So client sucks on her titties until a few sessions later she realizes that this might be sexual.

      Does being touch starved kill gains?

      Wanting to "hug" girls has became an euphemism for sex among zoomer social circles. Since zoomers were raised in environment where any kind of masculinity is deemed toxic, it's no longer okay to talk about wanting to fuck a girl around these zoomer social circles, so they use "hug" euphemism. Remember that "bonk! you go to horny jail" meme? It's the same thing. It's a way to weed out any kind of masculinity from social interactions between male zoomers, and a way to make them inclusive to girls as well.
      t. zoomer
      so if you talk about hugging girls I just assume that you are some low test conformist gay. I literally know a zoomer guy who's in an "open relationship" with a girl that's "asexual", and he's constantly bitching how he badly needs to hug someone, or some gay shit like that.

      >In my family signs of affection were considered embarrassing.
      I still vividly remember being startled when I was at my friends house for the first time back in high school and saw his parents kiss, realizing I have never seen my parents do that, ever.
      Never saw them kiss, never experienced any physical contact besides what was necessary as a kid etc. And I was never mistreated by them, always had everything I needed in terms of being fed and material stuff, it took quite a while for me to realize that I actually have this gigantic emotional hole because of never experiencing any form of love/intimacy/emotional care in my life or anywhere around me. All I got was rare half side hugs from mom and awkward firm handshakes from my father, and I thought that's the norm. Then I saw other parents kissing and doing constant physical contact which boggled my mind, with others even saying they saw/heard their parents having sex multiple times. I couldn't wrap my head around that fact. Don't even have to mention that I'm absolutely emotionally crippled and a kissless virgin in my late 20s

    In a roundabout way, probably. The lack of touch in and of itself wouldn't really affect anything, but if you crave touch and aren't getting it, you're probably depressed and that will affect your gains.
