    11 Ways I'm Embracing Self-Love This Valentine's Day Through My Love Language Of Touch

    Living alone can be a struggle when you just want a cuddle.

    Everyone expresses their love in different ways. For me, that's through my sense of touch. Some people give gifts. Other people appreciate words of affirmation. But I'm definitely a hugger. I'm the kind of person who will give my close friends back rubs or braid their hair. So you could say that I thrive with physical affection.

    However, I've been single for a hot minute. And because many of my friends aren't as touchy-feely as I am, it's been hard to get platonic hugs or other physical contact.

    Fortunately, I've found several ways to fulfill my need for cuddles.

    1. Weighted blankets

    2. Petsitting

    7. Body pillows

    11. And DIY spa nights
