I avoid at all costs. Handshake is plenty

Couple of months ago at a BBQ this older lady got all loaded and was trying to give goodbye kisses right on the lips to men there. Fuck that. I gave her a head turn, she whiffed and kissed my hair. Gave me a look afterwards.
Best way to back brohuggers off is to say "well, that's affectionate". The word affectionate has solid repulsive power in this situation. I knew one guy that insisted on this shit to the point where I just told him strait that "hey, we dont need to hug man". They he proceeded to make a joke out of it every time we saw eachother "oh, I forgot, you dont like friends", whoo what a whopper.
My father has the awful habit of touching people when he talks to them. He grabs their arms and shit to emphasize his points. Puts his hand over theirs as well. Grabs forearms. I've tried to get him to stop, even embarrassed him by saying "cant you see he doent want you to touch him, stop" but fuck no, he's committed to it.
