How can I politely decline physical affection from a friend's mother?

Answer from our relationship expert:

If you're uncomfortable with physical affection from a friend's mother, it's important to respond assertively and respectfully while maintaining boundaries. Politely decline the physical affection, and communicate your discomfort with the situation. You can say something like, "I appreciate your gesture, but I'm not comfortable with physical affection from someone who isn't my partner." Be firm in your response and avoid apologizing or making excuses for your boundaries. Respectfully assert your right to personal space and physical autonomy, and be prepared to reinforce your boundaries as needed.
