Re: Is encouraging non-sexual physical contact abuse?
It’s just two people who who enjoy each other’s company. Nothing wrong with that.
Through my body language and actions, I let Lucy know that I’m open and welcoming to affection. She reciprocates that sentiment, and we have spent hours on end cuddling. We have a bond, and trust for each other. I don’t see how that in and of itself could be considered abusive.
Her younger sister Chloe isn’t as receptive to my body language and actions, so she doesn’t initiate affection very often. I don’t do anything to try to woo her anymore than Lucy. I just accept what we have.
