Are you me?! I'm a writer/artist too, and I definetly think it comes from that. I like to be romanced, touched, cuddled, I will NEVER get tired of that kind of deep affection.

Nah you just gotta be patient tbh and keep looking for you good man/woman, and keep reminding him/her you like that stuff imo. <3 And show him love too so he's more motivated to give you the same.
