Is it normal for someone to not like being touched?...I know this person who moves away when people touch her,even if its just by mistake she will get all uncomfortable...then get a kinda sad/angry look on her face.
is this because she's stuck up? or could there be other reasons?

maybe she doesn't like people touching her, the way some people don't like roller coasters, or some people don't like rats or spiders. Everyone has their own phobia, it doesn't mean they are stuck up. Jeeze, leave her alone.

So whats so abnormal about it? Are these people some sort of super hug types who's hugs touches and proximity are just so wonderful that a person would have to be screwed up to not enjoy it? How about calling a person screwed up because they need all of that touching? For all the modern day talk about individuality and casting standards of behavior and societal expectations to the wayside, people today seem to have some hyper unreallistic expectations of other people and tend to get thier feelings hurt when someone deviates from a 'norm' that isn't even generally accepted. In some cultures physcal contact beyond a simple handshake is a major offense. Just because you and your circle of friends like being handled doesn't mean that everyone else has to like it in order to be considered normal.

i dont know what your friends problem is.. but it could be alot of different things.. so i wouldnt classify her as stuck up unless u know for sure.. i have the same problem with touching.. i hate it.. i hate to give my family or friends hugs.. and i cant stand it when people i dont know well try to give me hugs.. or when south americans want to kiss u on the check.. that bothers me so bad..it is so uncomfortable for me that it almost hurts.. this year my coach was helping us stretch and he was pushing on my back to help me with the hamstring stretch and it felt so bad to me..that i think i had a panic attack... i started to breathe really hard.and get dizzy and get tunnel vision..i thought i was going to pass out.. so i wouldnt consider your friend to be stuck up, some people just hate it when u invade their personal bubble

i hate when people touch me if i dont want them to. Its not bad... just I like my space. I would respect this person... because you never know if she will snap.......

or maybe you are annoying and loud and she doesnt want you around her.

It is common for people who have suffered some form of physical or sexual abuse to not want to be touched. This may not be the case for the girl you are referring to, but there is a high chance she was a victim of some form of abuse if she seems so uncomfortable.

well, i for one have the same problem. if there is meaning in the touch, like a handshake hug holdin hands etc.., im ok with it. but if someone casually places their hand on my shoulder, or even gets to close, i hate it. i feel like tht person doesnt respect me. just try not to touch her an overly lot.

I don't like to be touched. In most cases, I don't think anything's wrong with it. I grew up in a family where we didn't hug or touch each other much... I think that's where mine came from.

I've adapted over time and I can be touched without letting people know it bothers me.

She's probably not stuck up. She could be a germaphobe or just someone that doesn't like people getting to close to her "personal space".

i've got the same problem..i tink everyone is different! My parents said I was always like this wen i was a baby...never liked to be held or touched by anyone but my parents, and today I'll feel so uncomfortable if anyone touch me or even hug me. I've got to really trust and know you for like decades in order to let you touch. Bottom line I must love you..truly love u for that to happen! I believe its because we are all different &unique!

Just so you know, it is not normal to not want to be touched. Well, its normal to not want to be touched by some people, but generally to not like being touched at all is not normal. I have the same problem of nto liking to be touched. I dont likeit hwen my wife touches me, and I love her. Where does it come from? When I turned 18, I began working as an officer. I worked in that line of work for quite a while, and due to the nature of the things I saw and was a part of, I developed a total resentment for all human contact. Its call PTSD. Most ordinary people, assuming they dont have some kind of brain disorder, who have a general phobia about being touched do so because sometime in their past something happened that cause them to dislike being touched. Many times they don't even remember what happened or realize what kind of effect it has had on them. For me it took, being out of that line of work for several years before I began to realize that my behavior was not normal for everyone else around me.

Maybe she's too ticklish? Like hyper sensitive skin/nerves.
NOT makeing fun of her or being mean. The are spots on my body where I can't stand to be touched.

Or maybe she's just skiddish around strangers.
