I have been "touch starved" for 24 years. I do not feel "touch starved" however because my body has gotten used to it. There was a old meme tagline about robots skin turning to steel unable to feel touch anymore and i think its fairly true if you go a long enough time without it.
What is "touch starved"? I got used to being kind of cold and not used to touching other people since I was a kid because my father was like that as well (and he got it from his father)
I avoided thinking about and dont think about it anymore
