Physical sensations are part of our everyday lives, but not all of them are created equal. Hugging a friend, for example, feels way better than a papercut.

There are a lot of great sensations, though. One of my favorites is the feeling of the short fur just under my cat's chin, which she loves to have scratched. Her fur is super soft, and it brings me joy to scratch her chin because she so obviously loves the interaction too.


In search of more of these great sensations, Reddit user u/Zahfier asked:

"What is the best physical, yet non-sexual, sensation?"

I get a similar feeling when I clean mine.

Take them off, clean then, and then putting them back is like, “whoa! Look at the crisp colors!”

When that part of the song comes on that gives you a tingle. It starts at the base of your neck and works its way out through your entire body.

We aren't perfect. There's plenty of things in our pasts that we look back and cringe at.

I don't miss high school or the people in it. People who seem to have peaked in high school also weird me out. How? Why? I can definitely tell you that life got much more interesting the older I got (my 20s were way more fun than any of my time in high school). If you were to ask me if I have any regrets, I suppose I would say that I wish I had been more assertive and stood up for myself more. Depression has a way of complicating goals like that, though. Let me tell you: It feels nice to be so much healthier than I was then.

After Redditor XYZ3110 asked the online community, "What's the creepiest thing an ex has done?" people shared their stories.
