Men are living life with a huge touch deficit. Most men were not touched growing up to the level they needed, so they violated their values by doing stupid stuff to meet a need. Their father usually didn’t do it at all, their mother didn’t do it enough, and they have been trying to fill that hole ever since. So give yourself permission to show some godly affection to other men and make up for lost time, it will get you better. Hug people and hold on a second longer than is comfortable, let it go deep. The number one love language for men is touch ( The Christian way of saying “sex”) and this meets a huge need, so do it, and do it regularly. The cool part about hugging is that you get one too.
