I've just got a girlfriend and I have tactile defensiveness and I don't really know how to start hugging her. We just take it slow and she asks if it's okay to touch me before touching me.

I passed my test last week after 15 months of lessons!!! I spent 11 months in a car park, but practice does make perfect- or so they say! The hardest part is judging gaps and speed of traffic, but hopefully I'll get used to it…
My friend and I are in the school musical, we're both dyspraxic and we enjoy singing. We thought at first it would just be singing, then came dancing - we've had a laugh so who cares. Then in the dancing came holding hands, then hugs - pushing it. Now they, want us to KISS our partner, my friend and...
