Absolutely... All I really got to do with my ex was scruffle his head every so often. Touching his face was RIGHT OUT. Very, very different ways of expressing love, and it did feel like a rejection. Not the only reason for the dissolution of our marriage, but once the disconnect got to be too large, that really didn't help.
And now I get to DO the touching as well as BE touched. Absolutely love it.
