I LOVE to cuddle. I really am terribly touchy when I love someone. People I don't know, or even don't know well had better keep their hands off me though. I'm one extreme or the other.
Thankfully my boyfriend is very affectionate too. He always has his hand holding mine or just touching me in some way. Makes me feel like the most loved person in the world.
None of my dogs have every been calm enough for couch time.
My horse actually pulls the cuddle card every once in a while and I melt every time. After I pull the halter off of him he'll bury his head under my arm and put his weight into me and sigh a big sigh. He'll stay there for 5 minutes or more if I rub his ears and whisper sweet nothings to him. Most of the time he's a big d*ck
Not a cuddler. Makes me feel trapped. I especially hate it while I'm sleeping. I move a lot and to be in one place too long is absolute misery for me.
I do quite like dogs (and cats) though.
I agree. It drives Mr. Heinz a little crazy sometimes but I'm not an extended-stay cuddler. I'll sit next to him or hold his hand, but we're both side/stomach sleepers and face opposite directions when it comes to the bed. He has a bad shoulder and I like to sleep on the edge facing out, plus he's impossible to wake up if I wanted to move. And the one dog that sleeps on the bed likes to sleep between our feet, anway.

I know I commented on this thread before, but I have been taking note on how touchy I am.....even with people I am casually familiar with, and I touch everyone. I will squeeze a bicep of a man or rub shoulders of a girl friend.
I don't want to hi-jack this thread, but one of my favorite movies is "Crash" and in the beginning there is a line about now no one touches each other anymore so when we do connect, we crash into one another. Or something like that.
Oh yes! DH, various old boyfriends (all friends with DH, no "funny business" here), etc. My horse friends are not at all "touchy-feely" and it seems weird to me, after spending years in a social group of extra-cuddly geeky people.
But DH is the best. Always!

Just about every night I fall asleep on the couch, head on hubby’s lap – while he strokes my hair. Makes me fall right to sleep every time, and it is so relaxing!
And we “cuddle” when we first get into bed – especially in the winter! That bed is cold! Have to huddle for warmth! But I (and he) likes to have our space once we fall asleep.
Oh – and our small dog? He and the hubby are always cuddling (even his paper work from the shelter described him as “loves to cuddle”). I miss my cuddle cat I lost my “fatty cat” after 19 years together last summer. She was awesome for cuddling, loved to cozy up and put her chin on your shoulder and purr all night (also known as fatty pillow, because she loved if you put your head on her).
