Poke Means I Love You
When our son was a teenager he would walk by Lori or me and poke us. It was his way of saying he loved us. We took to poking him, and each other, and it became a bit of a game.
Some men are far more comfortable expressing their feelings with actions than with words. So a poke, bump, or other unneeded physical contact may be his way of telling you he loves you.
As for the other poking men do, that’s saying I love you and I want you!
