Physical Contact with Friends
I'm reading through conquer your campus, and I came across something in the middle of it that really has me thinking right now.
In the book, the narrator talks about the idea of the 20% Man, a person who everyone wants to be around. One aspect he talks about is "spreading the love". What he does is hug and kiss on the cheek or the forehead all of his female friends when he sees them.
Now the only physical contact I may do early in a conversation is a shoulder or elbow grab with my female friends. When I look at my younger brother, however, Michael's method seems to work. The other day, he passed by this girl he knew, who was sitting with her boyfriend, kissed her on the forehead, and then said "love you!". Thinking about it this way, it makes me tempted to start to live out this model of increased physical contact.
I am wondering if there is anyone else here who does the same thing. If not, then what do you do with your friends?
