If you are apart of the small minority that doesn’t care for physical contact, it’s OK. It’s normal and you don’t have to feel weird or embarrassed about it at all. It’s OK to feel what you feel and you don’t have to change just to please someone else.

Love doesn’t always have to be physical, especially if you hate close body contact. You can show love in other ways through words or caring gestures like warming up your significant other’s car in the dead of winter. Honestly, it’s the small things you do that really shows your love for someone.

There are five zodiac signs, in particular, that would eliminate all touching if it were possible. They just absolutely hate the idea of constant touching and friction.


The constant body heat, sweat, or smell repulses certain signs who would much rather show they love you by buying your favorite cup of coffee.

However, there are signs that can’t live without touching and their way of showing love is through physical touch and affection. Signs like Cancer and Pisces are crazy about physical contact and affection.

In their minds, if you truly love them then you would be all over them. Not touching a Cancer or Pisces can make them feel doubtful of your love and they’ll feel neglected.

If you hate touching, maybe a Cancer is not the person you should spend the rest of your life with.

If you’re wondering what zodiac signs avoid most forms of physical contact? Here are the top five who dislike pda and especially wish that you would not touch them.


1. AQUARIUS (January 20 — February 18)

If you constantly need to be touched, I am sorry to say that Aquarius is not the sign for you. An Aquarius tends to run from any emotional expression and that includes physical contact. They are the number one sign that hates being touched.

They would much rather show affection through other ways than holding your hand or hugging you at night. So if you are a Cancer sign, I would recommend putting an Aquarius at the bottom of your dating list.

2. LEO (July 23—August 22)

Although a Leo sign loves having all eyes on her, she would rather you keep your hands to yourself. A Leo is often cold and distant and she doesn’t cope well with being rejected. Touching is a sign of affection and weakness for her so physical contact is hard for a Leo to do.

She will almost never make the initiative to peck your lips. However, a Leo sign is very open and warm to receiving affection instead. So if you don’t mind always being the first one to grab her hand then you can probably pair well with a Leo.

3. CAPRICORN (December 22 — January 19)

The thing with Capricorn is that she is a very intimate lover but because she is so responsible and disciplined, she will hold off on any physical contact until she fully trusts you.

She is a pessimistic person, which means she expects the worst in a relationship so you have to work hard in order to let her know you’re staying and worth it. Once you do break the barrier and you’re apart of her inner circle, you won’t regret it. 

4. VIRGO (August 23 — September 22)

It’s not that a Virgo hates being touched, but she would much rather show love through other ways like a love letter or a thoughtful gift. Being touched is definitely at the bottom of her list and any type of PDA is out of the question.


So if you don’t mind a little or no physical contact, a Virgo sign is the perfect person for you. However, once a Virgo is feeling touchy, which can be rare, she is a very thoughtful lover. To everyone’s surprise, a Virgo does have sexual fantasies after all.

5. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 — December 21)

The thing with Sagittarius is that she is really flirty and quite touchy. However, she hates commitment so if you show signs of tying her down, she’ll retract any type of physical contact and start to hate your touchiness.


So if you’re into casual dating, a Sagittarius is perfect for you in terms of affection and physicality. But unless a Sagittarius tells you she’s ready to settle down, your touchiness will only scare her away.
