When I went to England I noticed that people would apologize or even freak out if they as much as touched my little finger. At first I thought that maybe I was putting people off, but later it was explained to me that English people are just incredibly nervous about touching people they don't know very well.

I've been to conventions in quite a few countries by now, and England is the only country where most people asked for a handshake rather than a hug. :XD:

I worked in the restaurant business. People who dealt with customers were told never to touch the English. They were also told that Germans were always on time and Italians never were. The French on the other hand always showed up 20 minutes late and then spent 20 more minutes choosing the wine.

On the plus side, the foreigners always had well behaved children, whereas American children were frequently spoiled brats.

That's weird, touching people isn't much of a big deal in Turkey.

As an English person: I touch you, I snatch my hand to my side and avoid eye contact. You touch me, I jerk away. We are not the friendliest/touchiest of people. This comic is pretty accurate... I never realised it until now... ._.

I swiftly retreat the offending limb if I accidentally touch someone, and depending on the situation I may apologise too, but I won't freak out like this.

meanwhile, at american anime cons, it is perfectly acceptable to randomly hug someone you've never met, sometimes at high speeds.
