Squeezing thigh - friendly or intimate?

Opinions please - If you were with a group of friends and one of the guys squeezed one of the women's leg under the table would you think there was something going on or would you just think they were drunk and being slightly over friendly? Both married to other people

And work colleagues too

it could be either really. sorry, not much help.

A squeeze of a thigh always intimate. Always.

Something going on.

I've only ever had my leg squeezed in that way by someone I was shagging.

Did she look surprised or did she not react? If the latter then it's definitely dodgy.

It was very brief but she didn't look surprised or really react at all

They be doing the sex.

No reaction? That sounds incredibly shady and intimate to me. Was your DP doing the squeezing?

RonaldMcDonald Fri 14-Feb-14 00:33:45

they are doing the do
or one or the other of them wants to be doing the do
<like betty boo>

If someone other than my DH did that I would say loudly "did you mean to squeeze my thigh or have your brain and hands disconnected?".

Not acceptable. Far too intimate.

Something's going on

ScarlettMantleplume Fri 14-Feb-14 00:51:48

I agree. They're on very good terms.

AlfAlf Fri 14-Feb-14 00:55:47

In that scenario, definitely intimate.

It's the kind of 'we are with a group of people so I can't be upfront but I'm thinking of you' touch. '
Utterly shite to witness. I'm sorry if this is your DH

Definitely intimate

I had a drunken collegue do this to me once and I jumped out my skin, so obviously other people noticed, he apologised immediately and the next day. I think he was trying his luck. That would be a normal reaction if it was drunkeness IMHO.

Life long friends who've grown up together and openly affectionate. A quick knee squeeze etc not so suspicious but would do it in the open and think nothing of it. Same as putting your arm round a good mate.

Under table, hidden, work collegues, drunk = suspicious!

The further up the leg the more intimate. The more illicit the intension.

Intimate. I'm so sorry if this was your DH

Chottie Fri 14-Feb-14 04:59:55

Definitely doing the D. Sorry if this is your DP

They are well-intimate.
