Re: who has hugged there T's? or anything else?

It must be due to my personal borders, but I would be shocked if my therapist hugged me. My perception is that I go to them for professional help with my personal problems, not friendship. If I'm lacking in desired physical contact in my life, maybe that would be something I would talk to the therapist about, but I would find it highly inappropriate for a therapist to have that type of physical contact with me.

And I'm not averse to physical contact or hugging. It just seems to me that there is a time and place (or person) for everything, and a therapy session isn't the right time or place for something that intimate. Since I go to a therapist for expert help, I expect a level of professionalism that wouldn't allow that type of interaction.

Maybe I'm too stuffy, and maybe I'm missing out on something, but if you read about a guy running out of his therapist's office screaming, that'd likely be me after an unsolicited hug. :)
