It is a natural impulse for people with a high degree of attraction to reach out to the other and lightly stroke their hair as a signal regarding determination of the willingness of the other person to respond. It is so natural, that we do it without the thought that we are doing it. Likewise, with a person with which we wish no contact, we can shake their hand or pat their back in departing, but we would never, ever even think of touching their hair.
Exactly. As I said earlier, and there is really no other way to describe it, disgusting.
